GOVERNMENT PROGRAMS

The development of advanced SiC crystal growth, wafer fabrication and substrate polishing technologies at WBG have been, and continue to be supported by a variety of Government programs. Development is focused on these critical enabling technologies and their transition to manufacturing so as to assure a domestic source for current and next generation Department of Defense (DoD) system requirements. These requirements include critical high frequency and high power components with dramatically enhanced performance.

Programs are currently being funded by:

  • Air Force Research Labs (AFRL)
  • Office of Naval Research (ONR)
  • Missile Defense Agency (MDA)

Past programs have been funded by:

  • DoD Title III Office
  • Defense Advance Research Projects Agency (DARPA)
