  1. Fast Optical Limiters (OL) with Enhanced Dynamic Range

    SBC: ADVANCED PHOTON SCIENCES, LLC            Topic: AF17AT029

    Optical limiters (OL) protect sensitive optical and electronic devices from laser-induced damage. The existing passive OL utilize nonlinear optical materials transmitting low-intensity light, while blocking laser radiation with intensity exceeding certain limiting threshold (LT). The common problem with the existing OL is that, at any particular frequency range, the choice of suitable nonlinear ...

  2. Multiscale Simulation Framework for Modeling of Structural Reactive Materials

    SBC: WASATCH MOLECULAR, INC.            Topic: AF16AT23

    We propose to develop a set of multiscale modeling tools for structural reactive materials (SRMs) that explicitly treat microscale, mesoscale and macroscale coupling of mechanical response, thermal properties and chemical reactions. At the macroscale, a combined material point method (MPM, solid)/Eulerian (ICE, fluid) methodology, MPM-ICE, will be employed to investigate the behavior of select int ...

  10. Innovative TWTs for VW Band Communications

    SBC: INNOSYS, INC.            Topic: AF161062

    We propose to investigate and implement novel designs to improve manufacturability of Traveling Wave Tubes (TWTs) for VW/E-band high data rate communications. High power amplification is needed with improved efficiency to reduce operation power and improve reliability.TWT design and development becomes difficult at V/W-bands due to very small circuit dimensions at these higher frequencies. Coupled ...
