  1. Advanced Infrared (IR) Sensor Components for Missile Defense

    SBC: Nanolight, Inc.            Topic: MDA06T011

    The objective of this proposal is to further explore PbSnSe detector array on Si substrate. Two approaches are proposed. One is a zero-risk incremental advance that employs a new growth condition to reduce the dislocation density. Another approach is a novel fabrication technique with high-risk but it could enable revolutionary rather than evolutionary advances. IV-VI semiconductors such as Pb1-x ...

  2. Advanced Infrared (IR) Sensor Components for Missile Defense

    SBC: Nanolight, Inc.            Topic: MDA06T011

    The objective of this proposal is to further develop IV-VI PbSnSe detectors epitaxially grown on Si substrates. The motivation of fabricating IV-VI detector arrays on Si is based on the following advantages of IV-VI Pb-salt semiconductors. (1) The large dielectric constant helps screen and localize the defect related effects. (2) The epitaxial material on Si is highly uniform, and thus the cutoff ...

  5. Biodegradability and Biocompatibility of a Shape Memory Polymer Wrap to Improve Saphenous Vein Graft Patency in Peripheral and Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting Surgeries

    SBC: VenoStent, Inc.            Topic: NHLBI

    PROJECT SUMMARY/ABSTRACT Peripheral artery disease (PAD) affects nearly 12 million people in the United States. One of the most common surgical therapies is peripheral artery bypass grafting (PABG). Some patients are eligible for less invasive treatment options like angioplasty, but patients with calcified lesions are not. In patients that do receive PABG, approximately 20% fail within the first y ...

  6. CNT Based Microstrip Plasma Limiter

    SBC: ACCURATE AUTOMATION CORPORATION            Topic: MDA10T001

    Accurate Automation Corporation will develop a carbon nanotube based microstrip plasma limiter suitable for inclusion on RF printed circuit boards used on the front-end of an X-Band phased-array receiver. This device will capitalize on the ability to use carbon nanotubes to reduce the size and cost of an RF limiter while dramatically increasing the performance. Specific attention will be focused o ...

  7. Corrosion Protection of High-Value Test&Evaluation Assets

    SBC: eSpin Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA13T010

    This STTR Phase I proposal proposes to design and develop reactive filter media using nanofiber technology to capture corrosion inducing particulate matter present in coastal region air. The fibrous filter media will be functionalized using ion exchange chemistry which is known to react with salt ions. The media will be characterized for its filtration performance, resistance to airflow, and dus ...

  8. Defect Passivation for Improved Material Properties in Ga-free and Ga-based SLS

    SBC: Amethyst Research Incorporated            Topic: MDA12T003

    A collaboration between Amethyst Research Inc., University Multispectral Laboratories (a government-owned, contractor-operated nonprofit corporation), and Teledyne Imaging Systems (a large defense contractor) proposes to develop/improve high-performance infrared sensors based on Type II, strained-layer superlattices (SLS). Such sensors offer (theoretical) advantages over state-of-the-art HgCdTe p ...

  9. Defect Reduction at the Silicon (112) Wafer Surface by Amorphization and Recrystallization

    SBC: Amethyst Research Incorporated            Topic: MDA11T002

    Silicon wafers oriented on (112) are the preferred substrates for deposition of mercury cadmium telluride layers by molecular beam epitaxy. Surface defects introduced during polishing of the wafers degrade the quality of the epitaxy and the performance of infrared detectors fabricated within these materials. We propose a process for reducing the density of the defects that are inherent in the si ...

  10. Develop and/or Improve Optical Coating Processes for Military Mirrors

    SBC: FLEXIAL CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Develop a titanium, welded metal bellows extendable sunshade to deploy over seeker system optics in kinetic kill vehicles and other military missile systems that employ optical tracking. One object of the sunshade is to offer an alternative technology tohelp improve the durability of optical coatings by minimizing thermal gradients on the coatings as would be generated by free airflow across the ...
