Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 28a
Budget: 06/12/17 - 03/11/18

Access to the earth’s subsurface requires technologies that can operate at extremely high temperatures and pressures. Only half of drilled geothermal wells lead to a productive site. Enhanced geothermal wells require technologies, proven in natural gas and oil production, that can increase output and yield of productive wells. Techniques such as...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 12a
Budget: 06/12/17 - 03/11/18

State-of-the-art solid-state deep-ultraviolet photon detection devices (for light wavelengths less than 300 nanometers) are based on wide bandgap semiconductors, such as vertical SiC Geiger-Mode Avalanche Photodiodes (GM-APDs). Manufacturing vertical SiC GM-APDs requires a specialized process stack that precludes monolithic integration of readou...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 16a
Budget: 02/21/17 - 11/20/17

Access to the earth’s subsurface requires technologies that can operate at extremely high temperatures and pressures. Well data loggers and boring equipment require electronics that are embedded in the instrument and can operate in-situ. To date, off-the-shelf silicon devices have been modified and made to work at elevated temperatures through e...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S4.04
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16

NASA has demonstrated a resolve for a flagship mission in the coming years to revisit Venus and land instruments on the surface. Venus has a corrosive, high pressure (~100 bar), high-temperature (up to 500 C) environment presenting extreme design challenges for lander electronics. The ability to establish simple wire-line communications between...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S1.04
Budget: 04/20/16 - 04/19/18

Commercial silicon carbide (SiC)-based photonic sensors typically use p-i-n photodiode and reversed-biased Avalanche Photodiode (APD) detectors. These state-of-the-art SiC photodiodes use the wafer substrate as one node of the device, thereby making monolithic integration of the device with control or analysis circuitry difficult, if not impossi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S1.06
Budget: 06/17/15 - 12/17/15

NASA has a need for electronics that can support proposed flagship missions such as a Venus surface lander. Devices that can operate at temperatures of up to 500�C are desired. Ozark IC and its partner, the University of Arkansas, have created the world's largest known library of CMOS silicon-carbide (SiC) analog and mixed-signal circuits, int...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: EI-2012
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will investigate the feasibility of utilizing Silicon Carbide (SiC) based electronics to create wide-temperature, low-noise, high-speed optoelectronic sensors for high-voltage power electronics isolation applications. SiC electronics are a unique technology that has begun to take hold for h...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 11-1-X6.02
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

There is a continual drive to move electronics out of the "warm box" to their point of use on space platforms. This requires electronics that can operate reliably over a wide range of temperatures and in the presence of radiation. The range of functions needed at various points across a given platform require use of digital, analog and high-vol...
