  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. An Ultrasonic Wireless Sensor Network for Data Communication and Structural Health Monitoring

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: T12

    Sensor networks embedded on structures, such as pipes, bridges, railways, aircraft wings and fuselage, among others, are required to transfer data related to the health of the structure. This data is typically sent to a central location where it can be processed, displayed, and analyzed. Typical Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) uses embedded ultrasonic transducers exclusively for non-destructive ...

  10. Braided Thin-Ply Tapes

    SBC: Opterus Research and Development, Inc.            Topic: T12

    Opterus proposes to develop braided thin ply composite tapes. The tapes will be braided from ultra-thin spread-tow unidirectional carbon and glass ribbons and will enable a new source and form factor for thin-ply textiles. The resulting tapes will be especially useful for thin high strain composite space deployable structures where they will allow bias plies in long parts without requiring seams. ...
