  • Galfenol | TechLink
    structurally under tension or compression Galfenol also offers full magnetostriction at low applied magnetic fields Magnetostrictive materials such as Terfenol D and piezoceramic materials such as PZT are used in many sensor actuator and switching applications However both materials are brittle hard to work with and limited in the environments in which they can be deployed Galfenol overcomes these limitations and offers a more robust cost effective alternative to PZT that requires considerably lower voltages The Navy s new material opens opportunities in adverse shock and explosive environments as well as new applications for active structural support Benefits Versatile Galfenol can be machined and welded with common metalworking tools Thermally stable Operates in temperatures beginning in the cryogenic range Galfenol materials for tensile strength applications can operate up to about 100 150 degrees Celsius while non tensile stress uses can withstand much higher temperatures Efficient Saturation strains of 300 400 ppm are attainable from single crystal alloys with comparatively low voltage Less expensive highly textured polycrystalline rods produce saturation strains of 250 300 ppm Strong 400 500 MPa 58 75 kpsi tensile strength and the ability to build in anisotropy through stress annealing means it can be used structurally under

  • A Method for Fabrication of High Performance ZnO Thin Film Transistors by Pulsed Laser Deposition | TechLink
    silicon a Si films Transistors made from a Si however suffer from a number of deficiencies including low electron mobility light sensitivity operation limited switching ratios and poor threshold voltage uniformity These deficiencies make a Si TFTs unsuitable for state of the art display circuit applications that demand higher switching speeds and accuracy Zinc oxide is an ideal TFT semiconductor for these applications having a higher mobility than a Si Additionally ZnO thin film transistors are more easily fabricated and less expensive to produce than indium tin oxide TFTs Image Right The Technology The AFRL team has developed nanocrystalline ZnO films prepared by pulsed laser deposition PLD to fabricate ultra short gate length first thin film transistors that operate at microwave frequencies The team has developed a process that utilizes multiple film layers to protect the transistor gate while above layers are patterned processed and etch Through standard lithography techniques this novel method bypasses the use of physical masks and allows for ultra short gate length transistors AFRL has also perfected the application of zinc oxide films onto various surfaces using PLD which employs a UV laser beam to first remove zinc oxide nanocrystals from a source and then deposit them as a thin film on the desired surface The ZnO films have reduced parasitic capacitance high field effect mobilities in excess of 100 cm 2 N s 2 and microwave cutoff frequencies of fmax 10GHz Benefits Superior electronic properties Suitable for high performance circuit applications including microwave signal amplification switching and mixing high speed logic circuits and high speed control electronics Ultra short gate lengths using optical lithography and refractory metals Superior ZnO thin film quality Low manufacturing cost ZnO is a simple binary compound and its composition may be readily controlled in a manufacturing environment The Opportunity The
