Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Jet Propulsion Laboratory

Agency: Navy
Topic: N00T008
Budget: 06/02/00 - 12/02/00

The proposed work aims to exploit several enabling materials technologies developed in the low-bandgap III-V compound antimonides (e.g., InAsSbP, InGaAsSb) by AstroPower. We have demonstrated new and modified crystal growth and epitaxy technologies including 1. ternary "virtual" substrates and compositionally-graded thick epitaxial layers with ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF99-177
Budget: 04/27/99 - 01/27/00

An advanced solution growth process is proposed for the growth of thick (2- to 3 -mm) bulk crystals of low-bandgap (mid-infrared) III-V ternary and quaternary alloys including InAsSb, InGaAsSb, AlGaAsSb, and InAsSbP with diameters larger than 2.5 cm. The solution growth process represents several new adaptations of state-of-the-art liquid-phase ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO98-016
Budget: 05/11/98 - 11/10/98

This Phase I project seeks to assess the feasibility of a completely new topology and fabrication process for semiconductor devices, especially light-emitting diodes (LEDs), solar cells, detectors, and thermophotovoltaic (TPVs) cells. Semiconductor optoelectronic devices will be made with a cylindrical shape by coating wire substrates with large...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF96-187
Budget: 09/15/97 - 09/01/99

AstroPower proposes to develop high performance, room temperature, mass-producible, low-cost infrared detectors using liquid-phase heteroepitaxy of lattice-matched InGaAsSb and AlGaAsSb on GaSb substrates. The structure of these detectors will be a Separate Absorption and Multiplication Avalanche Photodiode (SAM-APD). Feasibility of this appro...
