Abstract
Based on multiple technology platforms and theoretical analyses, in the Phase I program we have demonstrated the feasibility that RF polymers with desirable high frequency properties can be achieved. Following Edison_s model of product and process development for technology innovations, Phase-II will pursue further incremental improvement in material properties upon the concept-proving material platforms to achieve high and matched dielectric permittivity and magnetic permeability with a low loss tangent in GHz frequency range; the process development work will further optimize the scalable fabrication procedures for quality manufacturing of nanostructured materials with a commitment of pilot scale capacity in place. Leveraging on Spectrum Magnetics' expertise in large-scale fabrication of nanomaterials and know-how in the research of magnetodielectric materials, the team has essential ingredients and catalysts to successfully push this significant technology innovation to marketplace, to satisfy the Air Force needs in next generation antenna development with much improved functionalities in miniaturization, impendence matching, and bandwidth. For civilian applications, initial marketing products have been strategically selected to generate pinpoint entry for this technology innovation.
