  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. Analysis and Improvement of Trivalent Chromium Conversion Coatings for Aluminum Alloys

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    The trend toward replacement of highly toxic chemicals with less hazardous alternatives has created the demand for replacement of chromate conversion coatings for corrosion protection of aluminum alloys. Aluminum alloys are the predominate structural material used in aircraft because of their high strength-to-weight ratios, affordability and processability. Aluminum is subject to catastrophic fail ...

  4. Ultra-Textured Active polymer (UTAP) Composite for High-Performance Intelligent Acoustic Transducers

    SBC: Ceramare Corporation            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovative Research Phase I project seeks to combine the enhanced piezoelectric properties of single crystal perovskite ferroelectrics, recently discovered at Pennsylvania State University, with the electrostrictive properties of polyurethane to make a new class of "smart" materials for acoustic transducers. A tape casting process is used to form composite sheets compromising ...

  5. Comprehensible Descriptions for Fast Processing of Image Data

    SBC: DATAMAT SYSTEMS RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed effort will apply advanced methods of hybrid learning to problems of detection and identification of sensory events (e.g., boost phase evens). Our approach aims at building a vision system capable of hybrid learning, in which symbolic (rule-based) and subsymbolic (neural network) strategies are integrated to achieve high efficiency and accuracy both in learning human comprehensible se ...

  6. GaN LED UV Pumped Multi-Color & White Light Phosphors Using Innovative Immersion Techniques for Display Applications

    SBC: EMCORE CORP.            Topic: N/A

    The use of UV LEDs for creating visible light by exciting commercially available phosphors will be explored. LEDs based on the (InAlGa)N materials system, now currently used to produce high brightness blue and green LEDs, will be developed to emit efficiently at UV wavelengths corresponding to the excitation bands of various phosphors. By using UV emission from LEDs to excite standard phosphors to ...

  7. Innovative Development of a Large Area SiC Growth System & Growth Process

    SBC: EMCORE CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Silicon carbide (SiC) is an attractive material for use in high power and high temperature devices. Currently, there are significant challenges for the growth of large area epitaxial films of SiC. We are proposing to develop novel growth systems and growth processes for the large area growth of SiC. In our approach, we will increase the uniformity of Si/C ratios and temperature at the growth inter ...

  8. The Innovative Development of Avalanche Photodetectors for UV Application

    SBC: EMCORE CORP.            Topic: N/A

    For many miltary applications, normal photoconductors and junction photodiodes are not sufficiently sensitive for detection of low incident light levels, therefore photodetector devices with optical gain are required. Large gains can be obtained in avalanche photodiodes (APD) with both low noise and large bandwidth. It is proposed to develop innovative AlGaN/GaN based APDs. In order to achieve the ...

  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. All Solid-State Laser System Continuously Tunable Over 0.2-10 micron Spectral Range

    SBC: LIGHT AGE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a broadly tunable all solid-state laser system able to address any wavelength between 200 nm and 10 um at average power levels of several watts. This laser source will be useful for remote sensing applications including laser induced flourescence and backscattering, doppler lidar, interferometry, and coherent imaging. The proposed laser system will be based on a combination ...
