45 Awards Won

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO97-014
Budget: 12/28/98 - 12/27/00

The performance of existing resitors is unsatisfactory for high frequency, small footprint, low noise electronic and communication applications. These technology limitations can baaddressed with resitors prepared from proprietaryband-gap engineered, near-molecular scalematerials. This project, during Phase I,established the proof-of-concept th...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO97-004
Budget: 09/25/98 - 09/24/00

Large area electronics are under rapid development given the opportunity they offer to high definition displays and thin film nicroelectonic devices. Much of the present-day thin film device manufacturing technology is derived from IC fabrication technlolgy. Unfortunately, conventional Ic fabraication technology is extremely expensive for larg...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO97-016
Budget: 09/24/98 - 09/24/00

Quantum dot and quantum wire arrays represent the threshold of a new era in electronic, optical, magnetic, and sensor applications. Consequently, there has been tremendous amount of global interest in the technology and several manufactruing methods are now available that can sysntesize randomly distributed, polydisperse quantum dots and arrays...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF98-006
Budget: 05/01/98 - 02/01/99
PI: Jim Dong

Air pollution by volatile organic compounds (VOCs) has been a major environmental problem. Existing technologies for the control of VOC emission, such as thermal catalytic conversion, incineration and adsorption suffer from high energy cost and secondary pollution. An innovative nano-structured photocatalyst is proposed for the destruction/min...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF98-103
Budget: 04/29/98 - 04/09/99

There is an acute need for improved and reliable technology for capturing and neutralizing airborne chemicals for both military and civilian applications given the increasing threat of chemical warfare by terrorists or accidental release of airborne chemicals. Of particular concern are scenarios where a large plume of chemical agent is already ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO98-014
Budget: 04/17/98 - 10/16/98
PI: Ming Au

Existing PTC electronic components such as those used in degauss circuits are unsatisfactory for high power, high frequency, and small foot print requirements. These technology limitations can be addressed with components prepared from proprietary band-gap engineered materials. Nanomaterials Research Corporation (NRC), during Phase I, seeks to e...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO98-008
Budget: 04/17/98 - 10/16/98

The increasingly complex electromagnetic systems in military and commercial devices require novel and unique approaches to control EMI radiation environments. Of particular interest are technologies that can provide lightweight, low bulk, reliable shielding of EM. This effort seeks to develop nanocomposite materials that can provide the needed b...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO98-014
Budget: 03/23/98 - 09/22/98

Advances in microelectronics not only require fast and reliable semiconductor chip but also an equally fast and reliable packaging. Low dielectric constant, high thermal conductivity, and desired thermal expansion coefficient are key requirements for high performance electronic packaging materials. Neither ceramics nor polymers can satisfy all t...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO98-003
Budget: 03/16/98 - 09/15/98

Visible radiation detectors are enabling technology and are the basis for many military and commercial applications either in use or as proposed. Conventional sensors based on properties of Il-VI compounds are unfortunately temperature sensitive, time varying, and slow. This program seeks to overcome these limitations by developing visible radia...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N96-155
Budget: 01/01/98 - 01/01/00

Thermoelectric devices are solid state devices that offer the potential for compact, environmentally benign, vibration free, noise free, miniaturized technology for cooling and waste heat recovery. Unfortunately, this potential is limited by the low efficiency of these devices, i.e. low ZT and COP. Recent insights suggest that quantum confined m...
