Award List:

An Optically Switched Thyristor as a Thz pulse Source

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Heath Opper, Senior Scientist
Award Amount: $99,996.00
Abstract:
Sources and detectors in the range of 300-10,000 GHz pose a unique challenge to implementation as semiconductor devices. Transistor oscillators do not have the bandwidth to generate these frequencies/wavelengths and optical devices do not have energy gaps small enough to provide effective… More

Photonic control technology for Phased Arrays

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Principal Investigator: Heath Opper, Senior Scientist
Award Amount: $99,852.00
Abstract:
Phased arrays radars can expect considerable improvements with RF photonics. Current TR modules use numerous MMIC chips, ferrite circulators and phase shifters and quasi-optical true-time-delay (TTD). Transmission power distribution and synchronization across multiple RF interfaces can be improved. … More

Optoelectronic directional couplers for optical switching fabrics

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Jianhong Cai, Principal Engineer
Award Amount: $99,992.00
Abstract:
Optical switching fabrics (optical cross-connects) require arrays of highly interconnected optical switching devices. Such fabrics require a high density of optical and electronic interconnect. The optical switching devices are also required to switch configurations in sub-ns time intervals to… More

Thyristor-HFET logic based on optical signal transfer

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Jianhong Cai, Sr. Research Scientist
Award Amount: $99,992.00
Abstract:
The digital signal processor is currently dominated exclusively by CMOS technology. This is largely due to the fact that it is the only low power (VLSI density) technology available. However, CMOS is near the end of its scaling potential and it has a severe liability for space applications due to a… More

An Optoelectronic Ultra Low Power RAM

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Jianhong Cai, Senior Scientist
Award Amount: $99,885.00
Abstract:
The digital signal processing and static memory is currently dominated exclusively by CMOS technology with the 6-T cell implementing all static memory. CMOS is the only VLSI technology. However, CMOS is near the end of its scaling potential and it has a severe liability for space applications due to… More

Integrated Optoelectronics for Optical CDMA

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Jianhong Cai, Senior Scientist
Award Amount: $79,945.00
Abstract:
CDMA is a successful network technology for the wireless industry which relies totally on conventional integrated circuits. The same architecture is equally appealing for telecommunications and is considered an optimum choice for next generation FTTH networks if only low cost implementations were… More

Monolithic InfraRed pixel structures enabled by Thyristor-HFET EO logic

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Jianhong Cai, Senior Scientist
Award Amount: $749,904.00
Abstract:
IR imagers currently require hybrid read-out integrated circuits (ROIC's)and additional separate AD converters (ADC) to provide transmittable data formats to digital signal processors (DSP's). The DSP is currently dominated exclusively by CMOS technology as the only high density low power … More

Optoelectronic directional couplers for optical switching fabrics

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Heath Opper, Senior Scientist
Award Amount: $749,972.00
Abstract:
Optical switching fabrics describe arrays of interconnected optical switches that enable input signals to be directed to output ports with optimal flexibility. Such arrays avoid the use of OE conversions and circuit-switched connections by allowing the optical data stream to pass through the fabric… More

Optoelectronic Infrastructure for RF/Optical Phased Arrays

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Jianhong Cai, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,987.00
Abstract:
Optoelectronic integrated holds the key to higher performance, reduced mass and radiation-hard space systems. A special need is increased flexibility of phased arrays for communication and detection. Currently RF arrays use ferrite waveguide elements for phase shifting which are both bulky and… More

Optoelectronic Infrastructure for RF/Optical Phased Arrays

Principal Investigator: Jianhong Cai, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $749,913.00
Abstract:
Optoelectronic integrated circuits offer radiation-hard solutions for satellite systems with much improved SWPB (size, weight, power and bandwidth). The phased array for sensing and data transfer is one system that optoelectronics can impact in the near term. It is known that optical delay could… More
