The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. SBIR Phase II: Hydrothermal Growth of Ultra-High Performance Nd:YVO4 Laser Crystals

    SBC: ADVANCED PHOTONIC CRYSTALS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will focus on the development of a commercial process for the growth of Neodymium Yttrium Vanadate (Nd: YVO4) single crystals for use in solid-state lasers. This research will generate the commercially viable conditions for growth of large boules of single crystals suitable for use in diode pumped solid-state lasers. The hydrothermal ...

  2. SBIR Phase I: Homogeneous, High-Efficiency TiO2 and YVO4 Birefringent Crystals

    SBC: ADVANCED PHOTONIC CRYSTALS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR)Phase I project will prove that homogeneous, low-loss TiO2 and YVO4 crystals can be produced via commercially viable hydro-thermal crystal growth processes. Recently, a program to grow homogeneous YVO4 and TiO2 birefringent crystals using hydro-thermal growth methods had preliminary results that indicate that these crystals can be grown in hydro-therma ...

  3. Off c-Axis Bulk Crystal Growth of Silicon Carbide

    SBC: BANDGAP TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The development of a process to produce bulk silicon carbide (SiC) boules with alternate crystallographic orientations, specifically the a-orientation, which is perpendicular to the normally-grown c-orientation crystal, offers significant improvements inthe SiC semiconductor electronic properties. Specifically, the electron mobility will increase by a factor of five for 4H-SiC, and the thermal co ...

  4. Growth of Large Diameter Silicon Carbide Boules

    SBC: BANDGAP TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Absence of low defect density large diameter (~100 mm) silicon carbide (SiC) wafers is a major barrier for the commercial production of SiC-based devices. Hence, the development of a process to produce large diameter bulk SiC boules with low defectdensity offers a significant impetus for the widespread commercialization of SiC-based devices. An approach that will simultaneously increase wafer di ...

  5. Gallium Nitride (GaN) Device Technology Enhancements Leading to Advanced Transmit/Receive (T/R) Modules for Radar Performance Enhancement

    SBC: Belford Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to increase the mobility of both n- and p-type GaN by applying tensile strain and fixing the strain by bonding to an appropriate heat sink material. Straining in other semiconductor materials is now recognized as a viable route to higherperformance. We have demonstrated in these systems how low-level strain (0.05%) can increase mobility by a factor of two. Increases were larger for p-ty ...

  6. SBIR Phase I: Ge-Free Strained Silicon Via dTCE Bonding (Differential Thermal Coefficient of Expansion Bonding)

    SBC: Belford Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I propose to combine the technologies of silicon-on-insulator (SOI) manufacture with strain-inducing wafer bonding to produce Strained-Si On Insulator (SSOI) wafers. Silicon-based devices with silicon/germanium (Si/Ge) heterostructures have been extensively researched and this has lead to the discovery that tensile strained silicon exhibits s ...

  7. SBIR Phase II: Direct Measurement of Wafer Temperature in White/UV LED Manufacture

    SBC: Bellwether Instr., LLC            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) project will develop a highly accurate temperature measurement system that can be used in optimizing the growth of high brightness light emitting diodes for solid state lighting applications. This product does not currently exist due to technical difficulties in measuring the substrate or gallium nitride (GaN) epilayer in a region where they ab ...

  8. A SAS NMR Probe for Structure Elucidation of Proteins

    SBC: DOTY SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Available methods for molecular structure determination, based primarily on x-ray crystallography and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) solution methods have limitations. While the x-ray methods are several orders of magnitude faster, NMR techniques are required to obtain dynamical information or information on biological molecules in their native environments, ...

  9. A Quiet, High-Performance, High-Field MRI Gradient Coil

    SBC: DOTY SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of this Phase II proposal is to complete the development and demonstration of a novel gradient coil suitable for human head Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) at fields from 1 to 8 T with substantially higher performance than is currently available. The coil will be capable of continuous field gradients in excess of 80 mT/m on all axes with slew rates ...
