  1. Ion-Implanted 2-D MESFET Technology for Wireless Communications

    SBC: Advanced Device Technologies,            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I project has two primary objectives. The first objective is to evaluate the feasibility of a fully ion implanted fabrication process based on the heterodimensional 2-D MESFET. The new device, the 2-D JFET, will have p+ ion implanted sidegates which laterally modulate a thin, highly doped n-type conducting channel. The 2-D JFET should have excellent high speed, low power characteristics ...

  2. Si-CeO2 Silicon-On-Insulator Device Structure Grown by Laser Assisted Molecular Beam Deposition

    SBC: AMBP Technology Corporation            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop and commercialize a Laser Assisted Molecular Beam Deposition (LAMBD) process for the growth of single crystal lattice matched CeO2 thin films on a Si substrate and thin film Si on CeO2 for the development and commercialization of silicon-on-insulator (SOI) devices and potentially Si based optoelectronic devices. CeO2 is nearly lattice matched to Si (0.35% rnismatched), which ...

  3. Pulsed Arc Molecular Beam Film and Powder Production System

    SBC: AMBP Technology Corporation            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop and commercialize a Pulsed Arc Molecular Beam Processing (PAMBP) process which can be used to produce high quality and high purity thin films as well as nanopowders. The PAMBP source uses a pulsed valve to generate gas pulses between two electrodes. During the gas pulse, an electric discharge is struck between the electrodes causing ablation of the cathode material. The ablat ...

  5. Novel Synthesis of Fluorinated Parylenes for Low-K Interlayer Dielectric Applications in Submicron ICs

    SBC: Brewer Science Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    As IC manufacturers pursue larger wafer sizes and smaller device features (0.25 um), the interlayer dielectric material becomes critical . Current interlayer dielectric materials, inorganic oxides and spin-coated polymeric materials, have serious deficiencies (e.g.,k >3, water absorption, and spin coating defects). This has led IC manufacturers to search for low-k($6000/lb) has hampered commercial ...

  6. Novel Photorefractive Time-Integrating Detector for the Radar Signal Processing

    SBC: BRIMROSE CORPORATION OF AMERICA            Topic: N/A

    Using newly developed II-VI photorefractive semiconductors as time integrator and high performance TeO2 acousto optic deflectors (AODs), Brimrose proposes to develop a compact RF signal processor useful in radar signal processing. The high sensitivity of this relatively new photorefractives, in the wavelength range of 0.63ym to 1.6,um, will allow signal processing using low power near infrared las ...

  7. High Quality Bulk GaN Crystal Growth

    SBC: Crystal Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Crystal Systems proposes in Phase I to carry out research which will establish a scientific basis for growth of high quality GaN single crystals. This will form the basis for Phase II research and development leading to the growth of large high quality GaN boules (and possibly A N boules) and 4" wafers. There is a strong need for GaN devices in the military and the potential for extensive commerci ...

  8. Algorithms for Improved Performance of Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: EAST WEST ENTERPRISES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    New methods that will significantly improve the performance of focal plane array systems are proposed . In particular the problem of target track reacquisition ( lost due to cloud clutter effects) will be studied in detail . We propose to investigate the applications of (1) the method of "smart averaging " ( introduced and developed by Boeing) and extensions thereof (2) Probabilistic methods, to t ...

  9. Liquid Crystal-Based Underwater Imager

    SBC: EMPIRICAL TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    The contractor proposes a new approach to underwater imaging that directly converts a two-dimmensional acoustic pressure wave into an electronic requirements fo convential piezo-element arrays. The imager relies on the piezo-birefringent properties of a nematic liquid crystal panel that serves as both sensor and display. The capability of nematic liquid crystals has been established and publishe ...

  10. Multi-Evaporator Heat Pipe Network for Cryogenic Sensor Cooling

    SBC: ETA,llc            Topic: N/A

    Current thermal management systems for satellite infrared detectors employ heat pipe thermal diodes or thermal switches to couple primary and redundant mechanical cryocoolers to just a single sensor. With today's trend toward more but smaller sensors per satellite, these systems can become quite large, heavy, power hungry and expensive. Our innovation allows many sensors to be cooled with just one ...
