  5. Optical System for Precision Atomic Clocks and Stable Oscillators

    SBC: Stable Laser Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF141126

    ABSTRACT:The reliability of optical atomic clocks is very dependent lasers which have long lock times to the line-narrowing reference (Fabry-Perot cavity) and atomic reference. This work builds a laser at 657 nm and a polarization maintaining frequency comb for this purpose.BENEFIT:Optical atomic clocks will lead to improved timing stability, enabling reduced range error in navigation systems.

  7. Chromate-Free Fuel Tank Coating

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: AF141168

    ABSTRACT:Current aircraft fuel tank coatings provide excellent corrosion protection but do so by incorporating chromates.Unfortunately, these hexavalent chromates are carcinogens, and their use and disposal is strictly regulated.An ideal aircraft fuel tank coating would provide effective corrosion protection without the use of chromates.In this SBIR project TDA will develop a chromate free, room t ...
