  1. Scalable technology for growth of high quality single crystal gallium nitride

    SBC: Soraa            Topic: AF08BT20

    We propose to demonstrate and advance several key aspects of our novel, scalable ammonothermal technology for growth of high quality single crystal gallium nitride. Specifically, we propose to demonstrate a high growth rate and high crystalline quality, to design and analyze a pilot-scale reactor, and to construct and validate a quantitative model to describe the fluid dynamics of the growth envi ...

  2. Plasmonic Cavity Spectroscopic Polarimeter

    SBC: ITN ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF08T027

    This Small Business Technology Transfer program will develop a spectroscopic polarimeter-on-a-chip using novel plasmonic resonant cavities sensitive to linear polarization over a narrow wavelength range. Spectral selection will be possible through geometric scaling, with this work concentrating on the visible to near infrared wavelength band. Dielectric gratings with subwavelength period will act ...

  3. Orthogonal Chip Based Electronic Sensors for Chemical Agents

    SBC: SEACOAST SCIENCE, INC.            Topic: AF08T015

    Recent years have seen a shift in threats to US national security. Today increasing focus for national security is management of terrorist activities. Deliberately exposing a civilian population to chemicals and explosives to cause harm represents a looming terrorist threat. Early detection and identification is a difficult but essential element to minimizing the threat. The Seacoast Science/U ...

  4. Fabrication Technology for Oxide Film Heterostructure Devices

    SBC: STRUCTURED MATERIALS INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: AF08BT22

    In this STTR program, Structured Materials Industries, Inc. (SMI) and our partners are developing commercially viable fabrication technology for oxide heterostructure based nanoelectronic devices. Oxide heterostructures, consisting of a polar oxide such as LaAlO3 and a non-polar oxide such as SrTiO3, offer a novel route to building nanoelectronic devices. The benefits of these devices will inclu ...

  5. Graphene Production Tool

    SBC: STRUCTURED MATERIALS INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: AF08BT10

    In this STTR program, Structured Materials Industries, Inc. (SMI) and Cornell University are developing a flexible graphene film deposition system, for both research and production applications. In Phase I, our team demonstrated technical feasibility of scaling existing graphene process technology at Cornell to large wafer sizes. We demonstrated high quality graphene films by both silicon sublim ...

  7. Nublu: Assured Information Sharing in Clouds

    SBC: Modus Operandi, Inc.            Topic: AF11BT30

    ABSTRACT: We propose to develop an assured information sharing framework for cloud-based systems that leverages our ongoing work in the areas of policy-based usage management and semantic interoperability. The development of this framework will involve the creation of a novel approach to information sharing that treats security as a commodity that can be dynamically provisioned within the cloud, ...

  8. First Principles Selection of Social Media Visualizations

    SBC: INFERLINK CORPORATION            Topic: ST12A004

    As the importance of social networks skyrockets, so does the need to understand human behavior in these forums. While statistical analyses can help to some extent, many types of patterns are simply not visible by looking at raw numbers. However, many of these patterns do emerge in visualizations, and the innate human ability to see these patterns in graphical depictions represents a valuable oppo ...

  9. High frequency (HF) direction-finding (DF) system based on an array of high-Tc superconducting quantum interference devices (SQUIDs)

    SBC: Out of the Fog Research LLC            Topic: AF10BT40

    ABSTRACT: In Phase II, we will fabricate a SQUID array antenna. We will develop cryopackaging and control electronics for these devices. We integrate the device onto a cryocooler and build a laboratory prototype. We will then have all of the building blocks to build a fieldable prototype in Phase III. BENEFIT: Military Application: Microwave Communication Systems for ISR. Commercial Application ...

  10. Robust Model for Behavior of Complex Materials during Spin Testing

    SBC: SYMPLECTIC ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: AF08T013

    The objective of this project is to develop a practical finite element-based simulation of spin-pit tests of disks. The performance of disks in spin-pit tests critically depends on localized effects, such as residual stresses, dislocations, and microstructure gradients. Therefore, a two-scale modeling approach is adopted. At the global-scale, the disk is represented by means of finite elements wit ...
