  2. CVD-based Polytype Controlled SiC Nanowire Growth

    SBC: GENESIC SEMICONDUCTOR INC.            Topic: N/A

    A novel chemical vapor deposition (CVD) based step-flow epitaxy process is proposed for controllable growth of SiC nanowires with high polytype integrity. SiC nanowires will be grown in a modified commercial high-temperature CVD reactor, used by industry for growing high-quality SiC epitaxial thin films. Different polytypes of SiC nanowires will be grown by choosing appropriate substrate materials ...

  3. An Elevated-Temperature Nanobalance Based on Piezoelectric Shear Mode Resonators (quartz, gallium phosphate, and langasite)

    SBC: Masscal Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The work proposed will provide a demonstration of feasibility and specific design recommendations for building an elevated-temperature resonating crystal balance with nanogram sensitivity. The approach will build upon existing technology commercialized by Masscal for operating a QCM in a temperature-controlled calorimeter. Precise temperature control and new types of crystal sensors will be used t ...

  8. High Power Fundamental Power Coupler for Next Generation Light Sources

    SBC: Advanced Energy Systems, Inc            Topic: 03c

    Future third-generation light sources, such as the NSLS-II synchrotron light source proposed for Brookhaven National Laboratory, push the operating current and subsequent beam power to levels beyond the capabilities of single CESR-B cavities. The proposed light source will require 500mA and 1000kW of radiated beam power that must be provided through the power couplers/windows. This project will de ...

  9. Development of Alternative Reduced-Cost Helium Vessels for ILC Cavities

    SBC: Advanced Energy Systems, Inc            Topic: 48a

    The International Linear Collider represents the next great undertaking for the worldwide high energy physics community. In addition to the technical challenges, the political realities demand that ILC R&D focus on reducing the cost of the components of this massive facility. The helium vessels that enclose each of the 16,000 superconducting cavities have been identified as a cost driver for the c ...

  10. Improved Superconducting Accelerator System for Next Generation Light Sources

    SBC: Advanced Energy Systems, Inc            Topic: 03c

    Modern synchrotron light sources have come to rely upon superconducting radio frequency (SRF) acceleration to achieve high luminosity. To date, the workhorse in this area has been the SRF system for the CESR-B machine, which has been employed on many light sources in the last several years. However, as the quest for higher performance continues, this system is being stretched beyond its design lim ...
