Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Clemson University

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF10-BT28
Budget: 04/25/11 - 01/25/12

ABSTRACT: This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project will address the problem of obtaining low-defect-density gallium nitride single crystals for substrates to enable low-defect, high-performance epitaxial growth. Gallium nitride is a very promising material for numerous applications including surface acoustic wave devices, high-pow...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2011
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will develop a commercial growth process for single crystals of KBe2BO3F2 (KBBF) using hydrothermal techniques. The compound was developed 10 years ago and shows exceptional promise as a deep UV non-linear optical (NLO) material. The sub-200 nm region is presently inaccessible for s...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2009
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

This Small Business Innovative Research Phase I project is to develop a commercial growth process for single crystals of KBe2BO3F2 (KBBF) using hydrothermal techniques. KBBF shows exceptional promise as a deep UV non-linear optical material (NLO). NLOs are vital for the development of solid-state lasers with wavelengths below 200 nm for use in p...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Clemson University

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2009
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

This award is funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Public Law 111-5). This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project will address the problem of a multifunctional wide band-gap aluminum gallium nitride single crystal substrate that will enable low-defect, high-performance epitaxial growth. Since much of the ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2007
Budget: 01/01/07 - 12/31/07

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will prove out the concept that appropriately doped single crystals of lanthanide oxides (i.e. Yb:Sc2O3) can be grown via a commercially viable hydrothermal process. These crystals will enable the development of new high powered diode pumped solid state lasers with cw powers in kilowatts an...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2005
Budget: 01/01/05 - 12/31/05

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will focus on the development of a commercial process for the growth of Neodymium Yttrium Vanadate (Nd: YVO4) single crystals for use in solid-state lasers. This research will generate the commercially viable conditions for growth of large boules of single crystals suitable for use ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2003
Budget: 01/01/03 - 12/31/03

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR)Phase I project will prove that homogeneous, low-loss TiO2 and YVO4 crystals can be produced via commercially viable hydro-thermal crystal growth processes. Recently, a program to grow homogeneous YVO4 and TiO2 birefringent crystals using hydro-thermal growth methods had preliminary results that indi...
