  1. A universal framework for non-deteriorating time-domain numerical algorithms in Maxwell's electrodynamics

    SBC: COMPUTATIONAL SCIENCES LLC            Topic: A13AT008

    The project will remove a key difficulty that currently hampers many existing methods for computing unsteady electromagnetic waves on unbounded regions. Numerical accuracy and/or stability may deteriorate over long times due to the treatment of artificial outer boundaries. We propose to develop a universal algorithm and software that will correct this problem by employing the Huygens' principle an ...

  2. Chemical Analyzer System for In Situ and Real Time Surface Monitoring for Composition Control During Synthesis of Compound Semiconductor Films

    SBC: Staib Instruments, Inc.            Topic: A13AT011

    The area of thin film growth has progressed rapidly, producing many high performance new materials which require accuracy of their atomic composition to perform as expected. Any method to provide real time in situ information about the elemental composition of the growing surface is highly valuable for these new, complicated materials. Utilizing a new instrument design, the Phase I project team ...

  3. Oriented Enzymatic Electrodes with Enhanced Charge Transfer

    SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORP            Topic: A12aT011

    Our objective is to significantly increase the electron transfer efficiency of the enzyme-catalyzed reactions at electrodes and thereby establish a new state-of-the-art power source for military and commercial systems. The approach is to develop a novel method for orienting enzymes immobilized onto the electrode surface that results in facilitated charge transfer. The proposed bio-electrode techn ...

  4. First-principles-based framework for discovery and design of sustainable non-rare-earth high-temperature alloy systems

    SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORP            Topic: OSD12T06

    The aim of this STTR program is to develop protocols to discover rare-earth-free/rare-earth-lean magnetic alloys for replacing rare earth (RE) -based alloys for reducing the dependence of supply from China. The development of non-RE high temperature magnetic materials is very challenging. In Phase I, CFDRC in collaboration with its university partner has demonstrated a proof-of-concept computation ...

  6. Plasmonic MEMS Sensor Array

    SBC: Five Stones Research Corporation            Topic: A10aT002

    Sensor development researchers and engineers have perpetually sought novel methods to reduce sensor size and improve performance. Continued miniaturization of sensors through micromachining has enabled novel applications and introduced new paradigms for engineered systems to interact with the world. The challenge has always been to improve performance while continually reducing size. In the curren ...

  7. Origami Antibodies for Threat Sensing

    SBC: PARABON NANOLABS, INC.            Topic: A11aT021

    Beginning from an advanced stage of development, this Phase II STTR project will produce designs and prototypes for a ricin-specific artificial antibody constructed using DNA origami. These novel constructs will provide both a capture function (mimicking the properties of an antibody) and intrinsic optical reporting functionality, which marks a significant improvement over current antibody capabil ...

  10. Improve pyrotechnic smoke formulations that produce low flame

    SBC: POLARIS SENSOR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A11aT026

    The objective of this research is to develop materials that replace the current generation of visible smoke formulations used by the U.S. military. In particular the materials must produce low or no flame so that they don't present a fire hazard, have relatively low toxicity, and are efficient. The efficiency is defined in a figure of merit that combines fill factor, yield factor, extinctio ...
