  1. Lightweight Beam Director

    SBC: BRASHEAR LP            Topic: N03070

    The Lightweight Beam Director Phase II effort will develop a beam director and beam control concept for use in DARPA programs. Brashear LP will incorporate advanced, lightweight mirror designs, innovative design approaches, advanced/lightweight materials and new control systems approaches as necessary to develop a beam director concept suitable for use with the DARPA lasers under development.

  2. SiC Epitaxial Growth by Halo-hydrocarbon Precursor Growth

    SBC: BRIGHTOUTCOME INC.            Topic: N04T029

    The epitaxial growth of SiC is limited by two main processes; homogeneous nucleation and surface mobility at high growth rates. We propose to investigate the growth of SiC using three different halo-hydrocarbons and two or three different chlorinated Si chemistries and also combine the most promising carbon and silicon chemistries. The goal from phase I is to suggest a suitable chemistry eliminati ...

  3. Halo-hydrocarbon Growth of Bulk SiC

    SBC: BRIGHTOUTCOME INC.            Topic: N04T030

    We propose to use a gas fed vertical style sublimation reactor that can accomodate several different types of chemistries and be modified to a number of different approaches. The reactor is similar to the HTCVD reactor developed by Linköping University and Okmetic. The approach will be to initially try out different chemistries at fairly high temperatures where sublimation is a dominant process. ...

  4. Development of large bulk Silicon Carbide substrates from halogenated precursors

    SBC: BRIGHTOUTCOME INC.            Topic: N04177

    The development of long SiC boules grown from the gas-phase using chlorinated halo-hydrocarbons faces enormous technical hurdles that must be overcome. The hurdles of specific interest are the outlet, the materials degradation, the inlet, and thermal issues. Caracal proposes to find a solution to all of the above mentioned technical obstacles. The outlet is of particular importance since it limits ...

  5. Cost Effective Production of Large, Compositionally Uniform Piezoelectric Single Crystals

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: SB031005

    For this program TRS will optimize the zone melting Bridgman process for the production of PMN-PT crystals greater than 2" in diameter. TRS will also further refine the growth process such as growing the crystals along , which will enable significant improvement to the manufacturability of the material. It will be the goal of the proposed program to refine the manufacturing process so that cost i ...

  6. Single Crystal Piezoelectric Actuators for Adaptive Structures

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: SB032033

    Single crystal piezoelectric actuators are proposed as a means of significantly increasing the stroke of a smart actuator to control the trailing edge flap of a helicopter rotor for vibration control and noise suppression. Conventional piezoelectric ceramic actuators have exhibited inadequate levels of stroke and/or force required to produce an angle of rotation of ±8° at 40 Hz. Single crystal ...

  7. High Energy Density Relaxor Ferroelectric Terpolymer Capacitors

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: A03039

    Relaxor terpolymers (PVDF-TrFe-CTFE) exhibit dielectric constants > 60, 20 to 30 times the value of conventional film dielectrics such as polypropylene and polyester. As a result the new terpolymer has an energy density of over 10 J/cc at half the electric field of conventional polymer film. For the proposed effort TRS and Prof. Qiming Zhang of Penn State will fabricate wound prototype capacitors ...

  8. Single Crystal Piezoelectric Tonpilz Elements for Small Footprint, High Power Acoustic Sensors

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N04T033

    For this Phase I STTR program, TRS proposes to investigate the use of single crystal piezoelectric tonpilz elements for small footprint, high power acoustic sensors. Target applications are detection and homing acoustic sensors for small diameter (less than seven inches) vehicle platforms. Planar high power tonpilz arrays are the optimum way to obtain the required acoustic pressure and bandwidth ...

  9. Composites of Phase Change Dielectrics and Glass-ceramic for High Power Density Capacitors

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N04125

    High-temperature, high-energy density capacitors are essential for state-of-the-art all-electric equipment including rail guns and other weapons, electromagnetic launchers, sensors, vehicles, and ships. High energy density capacitors can only be achieved using materials with both high dielectric permittivities and high dielectric breakdown strengths. In this program TRS Technologies and The Penn ...

  10. Composites of Phase Change Dielectrics and Glass-ceramic for High Power Density Capacitors

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N04125

    Improved capacitor technologies are required for future power electronics and pulsed power systems being considered by the Navy as part of the All Electric Ship initiative. Using a single electrical generation system to supply power to both drive and auxiliary ship systems will enable much more efficient use of power, allow for damage tolerant distributed power systems, and provide high energy pu ...
