Abstract:

As circuits have become more densely packed, more energy efficient and able to operate at higher speeds, they have experienced an associated increase in vulnerability and susceptibility to perturbations from electromagnetic radiation. Super Pulse proposesto develop a novel, very fast (order of a sub-nanosecond), rugged, light, passive EM radiation shield that is not limited by the power or frequency of the radiation. The shield is transparent for radiation intensity below a specified threshold. Above thethreshold, the shield is activated and works as a reflector for any power of radiation, effectively protecting the circuits behind the shield. The device will be in the form of a protective window which will allow low power electromagnetic signals to gothrough without distortion or attenuation. As soon as higher power electromagnetic radiation will reach the window, the window will automatically become non-transmittable, i.e. the incident electromagnetic power will be reflected and/or absorbed in thewindow itself. The window will also be resistant to debris and lasers.The proposed window system to protect electronic circuits can be used widely in military and civilian applications. This is a front-end solution for many sensitive devices and will beused extensively because of the low manufacturing cost, and the no power and no maintenance requirements.
