Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF141-193
Budget: 07/02/15 - 10/02/17

ABSTRACT:In the Phase I effort, Teraphysics completed the electrical design of all TWT components, and a thermal/mechanical analysis. This established feasibility of the proposed TWT to meet Air Force requirements. The Phase II program will complete the development of the TWT to demonstrate a laboratory model TWT operating between 71 and 76 GHz ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF141-193
Budget: 05/15/14 - 02/16/15

ABSTRACT: Teraphysics Corporation proposes to design and develop a microfabricated, 71-76 GHz, helical traveling wave tube (TWT) providing at least 100 W of output power with greater than 50% efficiency. In Phase I, we plan to prove feasibility by completing electrical designs of all major components, and performing thermal and mechanical analy...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Research Triangle Institute

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-T022
Budget: 09/11/07 - 12/11/09

The radical design proposed here essentially reinvents the venerable helical TWT. The cathode, electron gun, slow wave circuit, output coupler and collector would all be significantly different from current conventional practice. This is not innovation for the sake of novelty. Without radical changes, the physical limitations of the conventio...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Research Triangle Institute

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-T022
Budget: 08/04/06 - 05/04/07

A highly efficient, very wide bandwidth, diamond studded micro helix TWT for operation at 95 GHz will be designed and fabricated by means of a novel application of solid state micro fabrication technology. Because of the nature of the fabrication process proposed here, this device can be built as a single TWT or just as readily as an array of T...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 04-2
Budget: 01/01/04 - 12/31/04

The diamond based backward wave oscillator (BWO) proposed here introduces novel slow wave circuit and fabrication concepts and makes use of silicon microfabrication and liquid crystal display technologies that have not previously been applied to the manufacture of vacuum electron devices to provide a miniature, energy efficient, electronically t...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 03-1
Budget: 01/01/03 - 12/31/03

Making use of fabrication technology commonly used in the manufacture of liquid crystals and semiconductors, but not previously applied to vacuum devices, the diamond-based backward wave oscillator (BWO) will provide a miniature, energy efficient, electronically tunable and mass producible signal source in the sub mm wavelength regime. Fabricate...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2002
Budget: 01/01/02 - 12/31/02

70266 The high current densities required for the operation of some vacuum electronic devices used in high energy physics research can be achieved only by operating conventional thermionic cathodes at excessively high temperatures. This shortens the operating life of the cathodes and can result in chemicals from the cathode contaminati...
