Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF103-167
Budget: 01/14/11 - 10/14/11

The production of RF amplifiers using carbon nanotube field effect transistors. BENEFIT: Higher power and spectral efficiency for communications and more sensitive detection.

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF071-086
Budget: 08/31/10 - 08/30/12

Create high linearity low power amplifiers for system level insertion. BENEFIT: Power savings, better mobile communications

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF071-086
Budget: 04/14/08 - 04/16/10

The development and characterization of a complete RF receive chain using carbon nanotube based active and passive elements and nanotube and copper based antennas is proposed.

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of California, Irvine

Agency: Army
Topic: A06-T012
Budget: 09/11/07 - 09/09/08

In this Phase II work, the main focus of RF Nano Corporation will be to develop manufacturing technologies for carbon nanotube synthesis. The university partner will fabricate and measure nanotube antennas. A second university partner will simulate nanotube antenna properties.

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF071-086
Budget: 04/27/07 - 01/26/08

The Phase I objective is to build and demonstrate a prototype AM radio at a carrier frequency of 1 GHz using an antenna made of dense aligned nanotubes and a classical diode as the demodulator.

Phase 1 SBIR

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

This Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Phase I project will utilize RF Nano's extremely low defect long carbon nanotubes (CNTs) to both develop an analog nanotube amplifier with gain at 1 GHz and plan for the manufacturing of CMOS compatible high performance RF nanotube devices. The project innovation involves electrically combining many...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of California, Irvine

Agency: Army
Topic: A06-T012
Budget: 08/04/06 - 01/31/07

It is the purpose of this Phase I STTR program to both demonstrate proof of concept of long nanotubes as receiving and transmitting microwave antennas, and to develop detailed simulation tools to predict their performance and determine the optimum geometry. This will build on four years of UC Irvine experience fabricating mm long individual sing...
