  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 ...

  2. Non-Invasive Bunch Length Monitor

    SBC: Electrodynamioc            Topic: 41g

    It is extremely important to understand and control the temporal characteristics of electron beams at accelerator photoinjectors. Measuring and setting the electron bunch length is critical to the operation of the accelerator, and can ultimately determine if physics experiments at user-based accelerators can be successfully performed. Many parameters affect the temporal characteristics of electro ...

  3. 10MHz, 10k-Pixel Fast Fiber-Coupled Imaging Devices for Plasma Diagnostics

    SBC: HYPERV TECHNOLOGIES CORP.            Topic: 28a

    High speed imaging of plasmas is limited to relatively short record lengths and is very expensive. Portions of the tradeoff space where slightly reduced spatial resolution allows gains in record length and reduced costs are poorly explored. HyperV Technologies Corp. proposes to construct a 1000 pixel fiber coupled framing camera with a frame rate of 100 Megaframes per second or better, a record le ...

  4. Radiation Resistant Magnetic Field Sensor

    SBC: Microxact Incorporated            Topic: 42f

    All high power target facilities and accelerators, especially the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB), require magnetic field sensors to measure magnetic fields in various magnets employed at these facilities as well as in cyclotrons. The currently used and/or commercially available sensors show only limited radiation resistance and in general require replacement every 3-4 months, resulting in, ...

  5. Optical Tomography for 3D Imaging of Fine Roots

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 18c

    Monitoring the root systems of plants is essential to improving models of crop productivity, soil carbon sequestration and biogeochemical cycling. Fine roots (considered to be smaller than 1-2 mm in diameter) are the dominant component of this system, with roots & lt;0.2 mm in diameter often representing 50% to 95% of total root length. The plasticity and dynamism of fine ...

  6. Advanced STJ Spectrometer for X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy at the Synchrotron

    SBC: STAR CRYOELECTRONICS LLC            Topic: 18c

    X-ray absorption spectroscopy is a widely used experimental technique for studying the composition and chemistry of materials and is one of the driving forces behind the explosive growth of synchrotron light sources and their increase in brightness by many orders of magnitude. However, advances in detector technology have not kept pace with advances in synchrotron brightness, leading to limitation ...

  7. PRISMS- Profile Resolving In-Situ Soil Moisture Sensor

    SBC: Transcend Engineering and Technology, LLC            Topic: 20a

    We are developing a subsurface monitoring technique for providing spatially resolved profiles of soil moisture in the vadose zone that can be easily deployed using either cone penetration testing (CPT) technology, conventional drilling, or in some applications, direct burial. The technology has application to a wide variety of earth and environmental science and infrastructure monitoring challenge ...

  10. Portable nitrous oxide sensor for understanding agricultural and soil emissions

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 18c

    Nitrous oxide is the third most important greenhouse gas (GHG,) with an atmospheric lifetime of ~114 years and a global warming impact ~300 times greater than that of CO2. The main cause of nitrous oxide’s atmospheric increase is anthropogenic emissions, and over 80% of the current global anthropogenic flux is related to agriculture, including associated land-use change. An accurate assessment o ...
