The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Ultra-Stable Crystalline Optical Microresonators

    SBC: OEwaves, Inc.            Topic: SB12A001

    OEwaves Inc. and AMO Physics Center of JILA propose to develop a novel monolithic ultra-stable portable whispering gallery mode resonator suitable for operation in a wide range of environmental conditions. The resonator will deliver the same performance as the best existing high-end laboratory Fabry-Perot resonatorswhich are large, expensive, and fragile table-mounted instrumentsbut in a robust 10 ...

  2. Self-stabilized monolithic solid state single frequency laser

    SBC: OPTIGRATE CORPORATION            Topic: SB12A001

    The general objective of this proposal is to design a self-stabilized monolithic single frequency solid state laser. The main advantage of the approach is based on the integration of a laser cavity within active laser material - Nd-doped photo-thermo-refractive (PTR) glass, which allows constructing narrow line unidirectional, environmental insensitive laser. This glass possesses both properties o ...

  3. Ultra-stable Frequency Reference Based on Spectral Hole Burning

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: SB12A001

    Highly stable, ultra-narrow linewidth frequency references are required for current and next generation timing systems. Timing systems with improved accuracy from primary clocks to fieldable references all require laser oscillators with improved inherent stability (time scales shorter than ~ 1 second). This proposal describes a novel frequency reference based on spectral hole burning in rare-ear ...

  4. Ultra-stable, Portable Fabry-Perot Cavities

    SBC: Boulder Precision Electro-optics            Topic: SB12A001

    Frequency stabilized lasers are essential subsystems; as flywheel oscillators in optical atomic clocks, as well as in many sensing and measurement systems. In optical atomic clocks, Allan Deviations<10^-15 at 1 s are needed if the readout of the atomic ensemble is to be limited by projection noise. We follow the lead of others, and propose a cryogenic silicon cavity, at the zero crossing tempe ...

  5. Ultrahigh-Q stable and integrated MgF2 cavities for optical clocks

    SBC: OEwaves, Inc.            Topic: SB12A001

    We describe our efforts towards compact ultrahigh-Q 698-nm microcavity stabilization at 1e10-15 frequency instability at 1 second and chip-scale integration for portable precision optical lattice clocks. This advancement is based on state-of-the-art measurements and preliminary results by our team, enabled by the highest quality factor optical resonators (Q f 2e1010) measured to-date. The resonat ...

  6. Design of Robot Control Interfaces

    SBC: Anthrotronix, Inc.            Topic: SB12A002

    For humans and robots to effectively work together, they must share a common understanding of concepts defining the environment and the relationship of those concepts. In this proposal, we present an approach for dynamic interface creation which takes advantage of a robot-centric ontology. We first define a taxonomy based on perceptions and capabilities of the robot, as well as the input and outp ...

  7. Design of Robot Control Interfaces

    SBC: Boston Engineering Corporation            Topic: SB12A002

    Boston Engineering"s Advanced Systems Group and Dr. Holly Yanco"s team at the University of Massachusetts at Lowell propose to develop a design science for robot operator interfaces and demonstrate its application through existing design tools and prototype systems that reduce operator training time, maximize the ability of an operator - robot team to maintain synchronization, and provid ...

  8. Design of Robot-Operator Interaction for Disaster Situations

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: SB12A002

    Currently Unmanned Ground Vehicles are teleoperated, requiring operators to be both vigilant and fully engaged throughout the operation. While increasing the level of autonomy of UGVs potentially reduces both the workload and cognitive load on operators, realizing the promise of autonomy is difficult in deployment. Remote operation of UGVs is subject to unreliable communication and mobility chall ...

  9. Applications and Methods for Continuous Monitoring of Physiological Chemistry

    SBC: Pinnacle Technology, Inc.            Topic: SB12A003

    With the notable exception of glucose, most metabolic biomarkers cannot be accurately, and practically measured over long periods, in vivo and in real-time. A primary reason is stable, selective enzymes suitable for biosensors are not available. Biosensors could revolutionize acute and long-term monitoring in the development, clinical, first responder and battlefield arenas. Pinnacle has develo ...

  10. Non-invasive Continuous Hemodynamic Monitor

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: SB12A003

    Emergency departments, trauma centers, and military field physicians have a critical need for a simple, easy-to-use, and reliable method of monitoring the onset of hemorrhagic shock that is able to predict onset during the compensatory phase, before syncope and cardiac collapse signaled by a rapid drop in blood pressure. In collaboration with Dr. Michael Joyner"s laboratory at the Mayo Clinic ...
