Gallium Nitride Transistor Technology Development for HPM DEWs

DSIAC was asked to determine the state of solid-state gallium nitride (GaN) amplifier technology development for high-powered microwave (HPM), directed energy weapons (DEWs). DSIAC used a collection of HPM DEW and microelectronics subject matter expert…


Carbon Nanotubes to Boost Communications

The quantum technology may improve everything from 5G to tactical radios. High-frequency radios may be more resilient, military sensors more sensitive, and 5G communications more versatile because of a technological breakthrough initiated by the U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL). Carbon nanotubes, the exotic material that offers a broad scope of promises, can now be fabricated

Nitrades in Transition

US Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) researchers have developed a patent pending technique using niobium nitride (Nb2N) that allows gallium nitride (GaN) to be transferred onto almost anything. The average, everyday person might not be familiar with gallium nitride, also known as GaN, but there is a good chance they’ve heard of silicon, a semiconductor that’s

”Near-Zero-Power” Temperature Sensor Could Make Wearables, Smart Home Devices Less Power-Hungry

Electrical engineers at the University of California San Diego have developed a temperature sensor that runs on only 113 picowatts of power — 628 times lower power than the state of the art and about 10 billion times smaller than a watt. This “near-zero-power” temperature sensor could extend the battery life of wearable or implantable
