Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of California, San Diego

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF11-BT02
Budget: 03/01/12 - 11/30/12

ABSTRACT: This work will develop high-transition temperature (HTS) Superconducting QUantum Interference Devices (SQUIDs) for wide-bandwidth receiver applications. Two dimensional arrays of ion damaged Josephson junctions will be designed and simulated to achieve a highly linear voltage response for unlocked operation. A variety of thin film YBCO...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of California, San Diego

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF10-BT40
Budget: 07/15/11 - 04/14/12

ABSTRACT: Superconductor Technologies Inc. (STI) in collaboration with the laboratories of Professor R. C. Dynes at UC San Diego and UC Berkeley, propose to thoroughly explore using arrays of superconducting quantum interference devices (SQUID) for high frequency (HF) direction finding (DF) signals intelligence (SIGINT). The primary focus of our...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: MIT Lincoln Labs

Agency: Navy
Topic: N10A-T023
Budget: 06/28/10 - 04/30/11

Free electron lasers (FEL) made from Nb cavities offer high performance, but they are complex, bulky, and expensive. For Navy FEL applications, where footprint, power consumption, and cost are severely constrained and reliability is of great importance there is a critical need for an alternative to Nb. MgB2 is a recently discovered superconducto...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: MIT Lincoln Labs

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-T014
Budget: 10/31/07 - 10/31/09

Superconductor Technologies Inc. (STI) is the worldwide leader in the manufacture of high-temperature superconductor (HTS) receive filter systems for commercial and military applications. STI has deployed nearly 6,000 such filter systems having a cumulative run time of over 165 million hours and an MTBF of over 500,000 hours. STI¡¦s highly selec...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-T014
Budget: 08/01/06 - 05/01/07

Superconductor Technologies Inc. (STI) has deployed more than 5,800 high-performance RF filter systems incorporating high-temperature superconducting (HTS) thin films. The deposition method of reactive coevaporation (RCE) used to produce these HTS films in high volume has also allowed the optimization of their RF properties to the point at which...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Commerce
Topic: 2004
Budget: 01/01/04 - 12/31/04

We propose to develop the technology to address the need for better harmonic reference devices in order to support the field of non-linear device characterization. Superconducting delay lines can be used to generate nonlinear harmonic signals with a known magnitude and phase relationship to the fundamental signal. In order to make such a referen...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB972-052
Budget: 11/21/97 - 07/31/98

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 1995
Budget: 01/01/95 - 12/31/95

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 1995
Budget: 01/01/95 - 12/31/95

THE PREPARATION OF EPITAXIAL TLBACACUO FILMS HAS BEEN DEMONSTRATED ON ONLY A SMALL NUMBER OF SUBSTRATES (LAALO3 AND SRTIO3). AT PRESENT, LAALO3 IS THE ONLY SUBSTRATE THAT PRODUCES FILMS SUITABLE FOR MICROWAVE APPLICATIONS. HOWEVER, THERE ARE SERIOUS LIMITATIONS TO ITS WIDESCALE USE. THE TWO MOST APPARENT PROBLEMS ARE THE HIGH ELECTRIC CONSTANT (...
