  1. Aluminum-free Compound for Stable Heteroepitaxial Materials

    SBC: Kopin Corporation            Topic: N/A

    MATERIALS LASERS ALUMINUM-FREE HETEROEPITAXIAL SILICON III-V'S KOPIN CORP WILL DESENSITIZE THE DELETERIOUS IMPACT OF THE INHERENT DEFECTS IN HETEROEPITAXIAL FILMS FORMED ON SILICON i.e., BY THE SELECTION AND USE OF "ALUMINUM-FREE" SUBSTITUTE MATERIALS WITH SUITABLE PROPERTIES. EVIDENCE EXISTS THAT SUCH Al-FREE COMPOUNDS OFFER THE PROSPECT OF USING MATERIALS WITH A RELATIVE IMMUNITY TO THE DEFECTS ...

  2. Improved Substrates For GaN and AlN Films

    SBC: Linares Management Assoc.,            Topic: N/A

    GALLIUM NITRIDE AND ALUMINUM NITRIDE FILMS ARE CURRENTLY GROWN ON SUBSTRATES WITH SUBSTANTIALLY DIFFERENT CRYSTAL STRUCTURES AND ATOMIC SPACING. FILMS GROWN ON SUCH SUBSTRATES HAVE POOR CRYSTALLOGRAPHIC PROPERTIES WHICH RESULT IN DEGRADATION OF ELECTRICAL PROPERTIES AND DEVICE PERFORMANCE. IMPROVED SUBSTRATE MATERIALS ARE REQUIRED WHICH WILL PERMIT THE GROWTH OF PERFECT FILMS OF GaN AND AlN. THE F ...

  4. High Flux Heat Transfer System

    SBC: Merix Corp            Topic: N/A

    HIGH POWER ELECTRONICS DEVICES SUCH AS POWER SWITCHES GENERATE LARGE HEAT FLUXES, WHICH MUST BE REMOVED, OR THE DEVICES WILL EXCEED THEIR UPPER TEMPERATURE LIMITS. MOST COOLING METHODS ARE INCAPABLE OF REMOVING SUCH LARGE HEAT FLUXES. MERIX CORPORATION PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A HIGH EFFICIENCY COOLING DEVICE TO REMOVE THESE HEAT FLUXES IN A PRACTICAL MANNER. THE DEVICE WILL FORM THE BACKBONE OF AN INT ...

  5. Solid-state Waveguide Lasers

    SBC: Micracor, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DIODE-PUMPED SOLID-STATE LASERS HAVE THE ADVANTAGE OF BEING ALL-SOLID-STATE DEVICES WITH OVERALL EFFICIENCIES OF SEVERAL PERCENT AND LONG OPERATING LIFETIMES, SINGLE-MODE SOLID-STATE LASERS ARE USEFUL FOR A NUMBER OF APPLICATIONS RANGING FROM COMMUNICATIONS TO LASER RADAR. HIGH AVERAGE POWER OPERATION REQUIRES EXTENSIVE COOLING OF THE LASER CRYSTAL TO PREVENT THERMAL DEGRADATION OF THE BEAM. SOLID ...

  7. Dynamic Focusing Mirror Array For Writing/reading 3-D Memories

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

    THIS PHASE I PROPOSAL IS CONCERNED WITH THE DEVELOPMENT OF A VERSATILE WRITE/READ INTERCONNECTION DEVICE FOR BIT AND HOLOGRAPHIC ENCODED MEMORIES. THE PROPOSED DEVICE CONSISTS OF AN ARRAY OF MIRRORS WHOSE FOCAL LENGTHS CAN BE INDIVIDUALLY CONTROLLED BY A VLSI CHIP CONSISTING OF A 2-D ARRAY OF IDENTICAL DRIVE CIRCUITS. THE VLSI CHIP IS BUMP-BONDED TO THE ONE SIDE OF AN OPTRON PROPRIETARY COMPONENT ...

  8. Paraelectric Liquid Crystal Spatial Light Modulator Structures

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

    THERE ARE NO SPATIAL MODULATORS (SLMs) AVAILABLE THAT OFFER HIGH FRAMING RATE (MHz), VARIABLE GRAY SCALE, HIGH CONTRAST, AND LOW-VOLTAGE OPERATION SIMULTANEOUSLY. BASED ON PRELIMINARY EXPERIMENTS CONDUCTED AT THE NAVAL RESEARCH LABORATORY, IT APPEARS THAT A SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM COULD LIE IN PARAELECTRIC LIQUID CRYSTALS THAT EXHIBIT THE ELECTROCLINIC EFFECT. WE THEREFORE PROPOSE IN THIS PHASE I ...

  9. Snap-Together Optical System

    SBC: Pdr, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    PDR AND AEROJET HAVE JOINTLY DEVELOPED A UNIQUE AND NOVEL OPTICAL DESIGN FOR GENERATING A HIGH PERFORMANCE, LOW COST, SNAP TOGETHER OPTICAL SYSTEM. THIS STATE OF THE ART CONCEPT FEATURES A PATENT PENDING MONOLITHIC PLATE (FIGURES 3&5) WHICH IS USED IN THE WELL RECOGNIZED 3-MIRROR OPTICAL TELESCOPES. IT ALLOWS FOR THE PRIMARY (MIRROR 1) AND TERTIARY (MIRROR 3) TO BE FABRICATED ON A COMMON PLATE USI ...

  10. Infrared Imaging Spectroradiometer

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Physical Sciences will develop an imaging infrared spectroradiometer based on the use of single order Fabry-Perot interferometry. An IR focal plane array views the center of the interference pattern, which contains the image of the object at the transmission wavelength. Piezoelectric transducers, synchronized with the framing rate of the array, move the interferometer mirrors to change the transmi ...
