  1. SBIR Phase I: High Quality and Low Cost Bulk Aluminum Nitride Substrates for UV LEDs

    SBC: Nitride Solutions Inc.            Topic: NM

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will investigate the feasibility of growth of high-quality and low-cost bulk aluminum nitride (AlN) substrates by vapor phase deposition. The performance of nitride-based devices, such as light-emitting diodes (LEDs), lasers, and transistors, is limited by epitaxial growth on foreign substrates. LEDs with aluminum gallium nitride (AlGaN) acti ...

  2. SBIR Phase II: Clean Tool: A unified approach to wafer cleaning

    SBC: Uncopiers, Inc.            Topic: NM

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project aims to develop a single wafer processing clean tool for semiconductor wafer cleaning at all stages of wafer processing. The method relies on using acoustically controlled micro-cavitation to remove on-wafer particles. This is a chemical-free cleaning method, using ultra-pure water as the only processing fluid. During cleaning the par ...

  3. Hydrogen/Bromine Energy Storage System

    SBC: TVN Systems, Inc.            Topic: 1

    "It is our objective to develop a cost effective, durable and reliable hydrogen-bromine flow battery system for small-scale electrical energy storage applications. H2/Br2 flow battery technology has been around for decades, however, the lack of low-cost and durable electrode and membrane materials in addition to non-optimal cell/stack configurations have prevented this technology from widespread d ...

  5. SBIR Phase II: Field Demonstration of a Novel Biotechnology for In-Situ Bioremediation of Methyl Tert-Butyl Ether (MTBE) in Groundwater

    SBC: MICROVI BIOTECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project aims to develop a novel process for in-situ bioremediation of methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE) in groundwater. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) considers MTBE a potential human carcinogen. Currently, MTBE's Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) in drinking water has been set for 18 parts per billion. It is estimated that the cost of ...

  6. SBIR Phase I: Studies on Preparation and Reactivity of Surface Derivatized NanoActive Metal Oxides

    SBC: NanoScale Materials, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop new surface derivatized reactive nanoparticles. These nanoparticles are expected to be highly active adsorbents and should be important in a number of applications. In the project, attention will be focused on preparing nanoparticles containing Lewis acid or base centers. The chemical modification involves introducing Lew ...

  7. SBIR Phase I: Integrated Fire Modeling Software

    SBC: Thunderhead Engineering Consultants, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR project will develop an integrated fire modeling software package for use in building design and accident analysis. Modeling fires using a rigorous, scientific approach makes it possible to predict the course of an evolving fire and its impact on the building occupants, contents, and structure. The software will help designers implement new fire safety codes and standards that allow the ...

  8. SBIR Phase I: ACIM deBonder: Thin Film Integrity Testing using controlled microcavitation

    SBC: Uncopiers, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop a new method of measuring how strongly a thin film anchors to its substrate. To date no method exists that can truly measure thin film adhesion. The Acoustic Coaxing Induced Microcaviation (ACIM) deBonder uses controlled microcavitation to directly reveal a thin film's adhesion strength by subjecting it to controlled erosi ...

  9. SBIR Phase I: ACIM Wafer Saver: A novel CMP slurry monitor

    SBC: Uncopiers, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project is targeted to save semiconductor wafers from being deeply scratched by unchecked large errant agglomerates in chemical mechanical planarizing or polishing (CMP) slurries. CMP has become the method of choice for restoring the surface trueness of wafers at all stages of integrated circuit manufacture. No method currently exists that can implem ...
