Phase 2 SBIR

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 Innovative Research (SBIR) Phase II project will address material innovations required to successfully take spin-transfer torque (STT) switching phenomenon from a research environment to commercialization. The goal of this Phase...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2008
Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08

This SBIR Phase I research project is to investigate material innovations that are necessary to take spin transfer torque random access memory to the product development stage. Grandis will produce single and dual magnetic tunnel junction structures to determine processes and structures for producing maximum tunneling magnetoresistance with red...

Phase 2 SBIR

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

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will address the critical steps needed to manufacture a fast, non-volatile, magnetic random access memory (MRAM) based on spin transfer torque (STT-RAM). STT-RAM which uses spin polarized current to switch individual bits is predicted to have better scaling properties than conventio...

Phase 1 SBIR

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

This SBIR project addresses a novel (not heat assisted switching) use of ferromagnetic/antiferromagnetic interfacial exchange coupling to enhance the magnetic anisotropy and thermal stability of the free layer in a MTJ. Spin Torque Transfer Random Access Memory (STT-RAM) solves the write current scaling problem of Magnetic Random Access Memory ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2006
Budget: 01/01/06 - 12/31/06

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project addresses decreasing the Spin Transfer Switching (STS) critical current through the innovative application of magnetic materials. STS allows for the manipulation of the magnetic order parameter of nano-scale ferromagnets without the use of external magnetic fields and is recognized a...
