  4. Integrated Mid-Infrared Sources Enabled by Waveguides Written with Femtosecond Lasers

    SBC: AKTIWAVE LLC            Topic: T8

    This proposal addresses, for the first time, the demonstration of integrated mid-infrared sources based on waveguiding in a bonded solid-state laser material and periodically poled nonlinear material. A focused femtosecond laser beam allows for precisely localized modification of the refractive index of a material, therefore enabling to create waveguiding structures. The offeror has demonstrated f ...

  5. OOA Process for Manufacture of Large Thin Gauge Composites

    SBC: Vistex Composites, LLC            Topic: T12

    Vistexrsquo;s patented Pressure Focusing Layer (PFLtrade;) technology utilizes a computationally optimized mold set that provides the same uniform pressure and temperature as an autoclave. NASA calls for an innovative out-of-autoclave processing method for thin-gauge structures. Vistexrsquo;s PFL process directly addresses this need. Specifically, the PFL processrsquo; core strength is its ability ...

  7. A New Oxygen Recovery Process to Reduce Waste from Propellant Tanks

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: T2

    After landing, the lunar lander liquid oxygen tank may contain as much as 5% residual oxygen that is pressurized with helium. TDA Research proposes to develop an oxygen recovery module which separates the helium from the oxygen so that the remaining high purity oxygen can be readily supplied to life-support equipment and fuel cells. The oxygen recovery module uses an advanced sorbent that has a hi ...

  10. KAPS Biotech: A novel biomarker to improve prostate cancer diagnosis

    SBC: Kaps Biotechnology LLC            Topic: 102

    Abstract Prostate cancer (CaP) is the most common non-skin cancer in men and third most common cause of cancer deaths in men. Black men experience a higher burden of incidence and mortality from CaP compared to White men. The Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA) test, a commonly used biomarker for early diagnosis and management of CaP, cannot alone accurately predict the presence of CaP, its aggressive ...
