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. Arsine Abatement

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    The continued use of arsine gas and/or its derivatives is vital to the manufacture of a wide variety of semiconductor devices. While the use of arsine is growing, it poses serious environmental and safety problems in the industry. New methods must be found that permit the facile trapping and detoxification of arsine and its derivatives. Advanced Technology Materials, Inc. (ATM) has gained a reputa ...

  2. High Performance Thin Film Microactuator Materials

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    The potential applications of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) have only begun to be recognized. This technology demands thin film materials with exceptional microstructural quality for high performance and processes with high yields. For piezoelectric microactuator applications, thin film lead zirconate titanate (PZT) is the leading material choice. Furthermore, substitutional modificatio ...

  3. Stress Analyzer for Microelectronic Devices

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    Multilayer thin films deposited onto Si wafers often exhibit high residual stresses during processing, leading to structural failure and/or electrical breakdown. Traditional scanning x-ray diffraction provides an accurate measurement of complex stress behavior in multilayer structures, but is difficult to carry out on a routine basis. Laser deflection methods are easy to perform but provide a li ...

  4. COMPACT LOW-NOISE DIAMOND DYNODES

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    THE UNIQUE PROPERTIES OF SEMICONDUCTING DIAMOND MAY BE EXPLOITED TO CREATE NOVEL, COMPACT, LOW-NOISE PHOTON AND PARTICLE DETECTORS. PHOTOMULTIPLIER TUBES ARE THE DETECTOR OF CHOICE WHEN LIGHT LEVELS ARE LOW OR WHEN THE PROPER SIGNAL MUST BE EXTRACTED FROM A CLUTTERED BACKGROUND. CONTINUOUS DYNODES, KNOWN AS CHANNEL ELECTRON MULTIPLIERS, ARE WIDELY USED AS PARTICLE DETECTORS. INNOVATIVE CHANGES ...

  6. Lattice Matched III-V Nitride Heterostructures

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    The III-V nitrides have recently emerged as the primary material system for UV/blue light emitters. Higher bandgap energy (Al,Ga)N alloys are currently employed as cladding layers for GaN and (In,Ga)N active region LEDs and laser structures. Lattice mismatch between the cladding and active regions, however, restricts both the thickness and composition of the layers which in turn limits the operati ...

  7. High Temperature SiC Power MOSFETs

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    Large power handling systems of 1KW to 150KW are required in a many applications ranging from aerospace to consumer electronics to industrial power systems and transportation. Conventional electronic systems, based on silicon or gallium arsenide devices, require a large number of devices enhanced with extra heat sinking and sophisticated control systems to ensure synchronous operation. The extra ...

  8. In-Cylinder Micromachined Pressure Transducers

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    Increasingly strict emissions requirements and the need to increase fuel economy and reduce service intervals have dramatically accelerated the use of monitor and control electronics in engines. traditional methods such as adjusting the air/fuel ratio to optimize catalyst performance are not effective enough to meet future requirements. Measurement of the pressure in each cylinder permits enhanc ...
