Department of Army Ultra-wide Bandgap RF Electronics Center Fiscal...
The U.S. Army Research Office (ARO) is soliciting proposals for establishing a multidisciplinary research center for extreme-radio-frequency electronics (x-RF electronics) based on ultra-wide bandgap (UWBG) semiconductors and related emerging materials. The UWBG RF Electronics Center to be created will facilitate collaboration between extramural academic researchers and the Army in pursuit of a mutual goal: generating the foundational knowledge in solid-state physics, device structures, integrated circuit design, materials discovery and development, and physics-based machine learning needed to enable the next generation of RF electronics with unprecedented power, bandwidth, frequency agility, and size-weight-and-power (SWaP) requirements. This necessitates novel research that moves beyond the frequency, power and noise constraints imposed by current approaches to modeling, materials, and established device structures. The Center will provide the Army with a new ability to create adv...
