Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD02-EP05
Budget: 09/20/04 - 09/20/06

Over the last several years, JX Crystals has invented and systematically developed the key components for thermophotovoltaic systems. These key components include GaSb infrared sensitive cells, high power density shingle circuits, dielectric filters, and radiant tube burners operating with JP-8. Most recently, we invented and demonstrated an a...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD02-EP05
Budget: 01/16/03 - 07/16/04

JX Crystals presently fabricates infrared sensitive photovoltaic cells under license from Boeing. Also, on a recent Army/DARPA contract, JX Crystals fabricated a custom liquid fuel burner for use in a TPV power source. Herein, we propose to design a 500 Watt TPV power source around a commercially available industrial recuperative silicon carbi...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO97-005
Budget: 03/23/00 - 03/23/02

This proposal calls for demonstration of 30 percent efficient, lightweight, affordable cell-interconnected-circuits for line focus photovoltaic concentrator systems. This will be done by combining the InGaP/GaAs cell with the GaSb cell in a two-terminal triple-junction mechanical-stacked configuration. The proposed team has participated in the d...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A97-150
Budget: 09/28/98 - 09/28/00

Thermophotovoltaic generators work by directly converting heat energyin the form of infrared radiation into electricity using photovoltaic cells. With no moving parts in the conversion process,these generators promise quiet and reliable operation. With their capacity to utilize logistic fuels, they have the potential to meet the military's emerg...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB962-073
Budget: 12/18/97 - 09/24/99

Using new low bandgap GaSb photovoltaic cells, JX Crystals has recently demonstrated functional thermophotovoltaic prototype generators. While it is generally believed that the cost of materials makes non-silicon photovoltaic cells prohibitively expensive, this thesis is wrong for thermophotovoltaic cells. Specifically for the GaSb cell, the G...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Western Washington University

Agency: Army
Topic: A95T004
Budget: 11/01/96 - 10/31/98

JX Crystals Inc. and Western Washington University propose to build a quiet, lightweight, clean, electric power source in which a natural gas flame heats a special infrared emitter and photovoltaic cells with matched spectral response receive the infrared and convert it to electric power. Such a thermophotovoltaic unit has only recently become ...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Western Washington University

Agency: Army
Topic: A95T004
Budget: 12/01/95 - 05/31/96

JX Crystals Inc. and Western Washington University propose to build a iet, lightweight, clean, electric power source in which a fuel is contuously burned in a ceramic tube, the tube glows red hot, and photovoltc cells receive the infrared from the emitter and convert it to electr power Such a termophotovoltaic unit has only recently become feas...
