  1. Quantum and Nanostructure Enhanced Epitaxial Lift-Off Solar Cells

    SBC: Microlink Devices, Inc.            Topic: AF13AT13

    ABSTRACT: MicroLink and its collaborators, Rochester Institute of Technology and Magnolia Solar, will develop a high-efficiency, single-junction, epitaxial lift-off (ELO) GaAs solar cell by incorporating nano-scale features, such as quantum dots and optically functional textures, within the solar cell structure. The principal technical objective of the project is to increase the AM0 efficiency o ...

  2. Nonequilibrium Plasma-Assisted Combustion-Efficiency Control in Vitiated Air

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: AF13AT04

    ABSTRACT: CU Aerospace (CUA) and team partner the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) propose to perform research, development and demonstration of experimental quenching free measurements of heat-release in a realistic highly turbulent plasma-assisted flame. Kinetics models will be correspondingly updated and detailed 3D multiphysics simulations will be validated by the measuremen ...

  3. Microvascular Composites for Novel Thermal Management Devices

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: AF13AT09

    ABSTRACT: Living systems rely on pervasive vascular networks to enable a plurality of biological function, exemplified by natural composite structures that are lightweight, high-strength, and capable of mass and energy transport. In contrast, synthetic composites possess high strength-to-weight ratios but lack the dynamic functionality of their natural counterparts. CU Aerospace, with team partne ...

  4. Ultra-Lightweight, High-Efficiency Epitaxial Lift-Off Solar Cells and Arrays

    SBC: Microlink Devices, Inc.            Topic: N14AT003

    MicroLink Devices and the University of Notre Dame propose to develop an ultra-lightweight, high-efficiency, GaAs-based, multi-junction solar cell that will be suitable for use in future platforms requiring very high specific power (>3.0 kW/kg) and very high areal power density (>370 W/m2). We will achieve this result by reducing the metal content of MicroLinks current inverted metamorphic (IMM), ...

  5. More Efficient GaN- SiGe based MMICs for Communication and Radar Systems

    SBC: Episensors, Inc.            Topic: N14AT007

    Active Electronic Scanned Array (AESA) radars play a strategic role in surveillance and reconnaissance. A GaN based T/R circuit will be radiation-hard but difficult to integrate with the remainder of the signal chain due to incompatible technologies. SiGe HBT technology, with its high frequency performance and the ability to blend in with CMOS, can act as a bridge between the high frequency III-V ...

  6. Top Coatings and Enhanced Cathodic Protection Capability for High-Value BMDS MDA Assets

    SBC: AMERICAN ENERGY TECHNOLOGIES COMPANY            Topic: MDA13T010

    American Energy Technologies Co. (a woman-owned small business concern of Arlington Heights, IL), will be joined by subcontractors University of Massachusetts (Boston, MA) and Advanced Technology Laboratories of Lockheed Martin Corp. (St. Paul, MN) in order to develop two anti-corrosion technologies with the goal to deploy them in a variety of equipment. The first technology is a top coating whic ...

  7. A Low-Cost, High-Performance Colloidal Quantum Dot MWIR Focal Plane Array

    SBC: SIVANANTHAN LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: ST13B002

    The primary goal of this proposed effort is to develop mid-wavelength infrared (MWIR) colloidal quantum dot (CQD)-based focal plane arrays (FPAs) to significantly reduce the cost of MWIR photon imagers. In order to realize this goal, it will first be nec

  8. Voxel-based Fusion (VOXION)

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF13AT01

    ABSTRACT: In ISR applications, multiple sensors can be employed to achieve more accurate parameters of interest on targets, improving discrimination and detection. But, the proliferation of sensor systems has created a large volume of multi-sensor data across a number of physical spectra. These resulting measurements can be so disparate that traditional aggregation methods perform poorly given h ...

  9. Parallel Two-Electron Reduced Density Matrix Based Electronic Structure Software for Highly Correlated Molecules and Materials

    SBC: RDMChem LLC            Topic: A14AT013

    Two-electron reduced-density-matrix (2-RDM) methods represent all of the electrons in any molecule or material with only two electrons by replacing the wave function by the 2-RDM as the basic variable for quantum many-electron theory. The 2-RDM methods, developed by David Mazziotti at The University of Chicago with support from the Army Research Office, have polynomial scaling with system size, al ...
