  5. AlphaBear2

    SBC: Spry Fox LLC            Topic: EDIES17R0006

    This project team will fully develop and test AlphaBear 2, a vocabulary learning game for grade 4 to 7 students. Vocabulary is a prerequisite for academic success, as it is linked to stronger performance across academic subjects and improved reading comprehension. It is more difficult for students to participate in educational activities without understanding the key vocabulary associated with tha ...

  10. Extended SWIR Unipolar Barrier Detectors Lattice Matched to GaSb Substrates

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: A16042

    The extended short wavelength infrared (e-SWIR) wavelength band is in a performance gap for infrared detectors. At both shorter and longer wavelengths high performance detector technologies exist: SWIR InGaAs detectors (1.7 m cutoff), and MWIR (3-5 m cutoff) detectors such as InAs-based and GaSb-based Unipolar Barriers, MCT, and InSb. This program proposes development of high performance e-SWIR de ...
