  1. Epitaxial GaN on flexible metal tapes for low-cost transistor devices

    SBC: IBEAM MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: 1

    GaN-based devices are the basis of a variety of modern electronics applications, especially in optoelectronics and high-frequency / high-power electronics. These devices are based on epitaxial films grown on single-crystal wafers. The single-crystal wafer substrates are limiting because of their size, expense, mechanical properties and availability. If one could make GaN-based devices over large a ...

  3. Advanced Verification Toolset for Learning-Based UAS Operating in Uncertain Environments


    This effort proposes to develop a toolset to evaluate the effectiveness of a safety-controller that monitors a learning-based autonomous control system. The traditional use of deterministic verification techniques for real-time monitoring is not feasible in the presence of uncertainty. This effort would advance the recommended verification techniques to include non-deterministic approaches. The ...

  4. Combined Approaches for Verification and Validation of Run Time Protected Systems

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: OSD13HS2

    Barron Associates has assembled a team of researchers that include Dr. Sayan Mitra of the University of Illinois and Dr. Ufuk Topcu of the University of Pennsylvania. They will spearhead three complimentary investigations into the development of verification and validation (V & V) approaches for adaptive systems protected by run time assurance (RTA) mechanisms. Two of these approaches involve us ...

  6. Lights Out Data Centers with AutoPHY Automated Network Management Service

    SBC: Telescent Inc.            Topic: 01a

    This Small Business Innovation Research proposal presents AutoPHY, an autonomous, virtualized layer 0 interconnection service for data centers and cloud computing. The Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) stack representing the Internet infrastructure consists of layers 0 to 7. Today all layers can be automatically configured and managed through software, with the exception ...

    SBC: AURRION, INC.            Topic: 01b

    The interconnect networks of datacenters and extreme scale high performance computers (HPC) will require a bandwidth density, in terms of connections per area, that cannot practically be met with todays optical transceiver technology. The push for high-radix connectivity in combination with an ever increasing amount of data transported on these advanced networks requires increasing num ...

  8. Low Loss Polymer Optical Fiber and Components for High Speed Optical Networks

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: 01b

    This DOE SBIR program would develop a manufacturing process to produce plastic optical fibers with bandwidth, bend loss and ease of installation significantly improved over currently available products. Current polymer optical fibers are manufactured using bulk polymer processing methods. These methods limit the types of fiber waveguides that may be formed, so significantly l ...

  9. Web platform architecture for CFD simulations and real-time analysis on HPC resources

    SBC: CASCADE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 02c

    The availability and continued growth of High Performance Computing (HPC) is opening new avenues for complex physics based software simulations. The usage of HPC is particularly important in high-fidelity Large-Eddy Simulation (LES) a branch of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) of multi-physics engineering problems such as the development of more efficient and less polluting advanced energy ...

  10. Efficient Large-area X-ray Detectors

    SBC: DXRAY, INC.            Topic: 03a

    High energy (30-90 keV) x-rays are critical for exploring failure modes of lightweight structural materials and for determining the details on atomic bonding in crystalline materials being developed for catalytic and energy storage applications. Detectors for the x-ray diffraction patterns from these high-energy x-rays must have a combination of good efficiency and good spatial resolution. Current ...
