The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Quantum Cryptography Single Photon Detector Chip

    SBC: AET, Inc.            Topic: DMEA142001

    AET will perform R&D to develop a quantum cryptographic single photon counting system (or detector) consisting of a high performance integrated circuit chip and detector (such as an avalanche photodiode) for use in a secure fiber optic communications link. Quantum cryptography applies an encryption scheme that uses a series of single, polarized photons that act as the key between the sender an ...

  2. High-Efficiency Integrated Si APD Quantum Key Receiver

    SBC: Freedom Photonics LLC            Topic: DMEA142001

    High-efficiency detectors capable of single photon detection are one of the key technologies required for adoption of QKD technology. These detection systems need to be made more robust, to be offered at lower cost, and to move out of the laboratory to provide ubiquitous commercial access. Freedom Photonics will develop a highly integrated and compact single photon avalanche photodetector with ...

  3. Quantum Cryptography Single Photon Detector Chip

    SBC: ULTRA COMMUNICATIONS, INC.            Topic: DMEA142001

    This program develops a single photon detector system for quantum cryptography over links up to 200 km. The innovation is the integration of circuitry, dual-mode detectors for increased data rates, and a highly sensitive detector on a transparent substrate. The approach including means for coupling the polarization and/or phase encrypted single-photon signals.

  4. Integrated Quantum Cryptography Receiver

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: DMEA142001

    To address the DMEAs need for an efficient single-photon detector for quantum cryptography communications, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new Integrated Quantum Cryptography Receiver (IQCR), based on a chip-integrated, complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS)-compatible design. The proposed single-photon detector is based on a novel, more efficient design of a silico ...
