  1. Retrofittable and Transparent Super-Insulator for Single-Pane Windows

    SBC: NANOSD, INC.            Topic: DEFOA0001429

    NanoSD, Inc. with its partners will develop a transparent, nanostructured thermally insulating film that can be applied to existing single-pane windows to reduce heat loss. To produce the nanostructured film, the team will create hollow ceramic or polymer nanobubbles and consolidate them into a dense lattice structure using heat and compression. Because it is mostly air, the resulting nanobubble s ...

  2. Epitaxial GaN on Flexible Metal Tapes for Low-Cost Transistor Devices

    SBC: IBEAM MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: DEFOA0000941

    GaN-based devices are the basis of a variety of modern electronics applications, especially in optoelectronics and high-frequency / high-power electronics. These devices are based on epitaxial films grown on single-crystal wafers. The single-crystal wafer substrates are limiting because of their size, expense, mechanical properties and availability. If one could make GaN-based devices over large a ...

  4. Production of Chemical Reagents for Prompt-Agent-Defeat Weapons

    SBC: Nalas Engineering Services Inc            Topic: DTRA14B001

    Nalas Engineering and Johns Hopkins University collaborated in a Phase I STTR program to study reactive mixtures of HI3O8 and nanocomposite fuels previously developed by the Weihs Group. These fuel/oxidizer mixtures are uniquely able to simultaneously produce heat and biocidal iodine gas, a combination designed to destroy biological weapons. The team at Nalas focused on evaluating conditions for p ...

  5. Vertical GaN Substrates

    SBC: Sixpoint Materials, Inc.            Topic: DEFOA0000941

    SixPoint Materials will create low-cost, high-quality vertical gallium nitride (GaN) substrates using a multi-phase production approach that employs both hydride vapor phase epitaxy (HVPE) technology and ammonothermal growth techniques to lower costs and maintain crystal quality. Substrates are thin wafers of semiconducting material needed for power devices. In its two-phase project, SixPoint Mate ...

  6. A Broadband and Compact Dual Comb Spectrometer for Precise Field Detection of Trace Elements and Chemicals

    SBC: OPTICSLAH, LLC            Topic: DTRA20B003

    There is a growing need to accurately characterize nuclear materials not only for nuclear safeguards and nonproliferation treaty verification but also for forensics and provenance. Presently, nuclear material identification requires samples to be collected and sent to laboratories for analysis using large and expensive equipment, such as inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometers (ICP-MS) or se ...

  7. Integrated Circuits

    SBC: NU TREK INC            Topic: DTRA20B002

    The Nu-Trek team is proposing to develop µDet, a low Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP) read out integrated circuit (IC) for gamma and neuron detectors. µDet offers pulse shape digitization, which in turn enables gamma-neutron discrimination. This is a game changing capability that brings laboratory-level functionality to the field. In Phase I the Nu-Trek Team will develop a baseline design for the ...

  8. Eye-readable Solution-based Dye Displacement Probe for Large-area Detection of Opioids

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: CBD20AT001

    Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc., in collaboration with Bowling Green State University, proposes to develop a field-rugged, eye-readable indicating spray solution that can immediately detect synthetic opioids over a large area of contamination (i.e., military vehicles, individual protective equipment, clandestine labs, etc.). The proposed chemosensor in a spray solution format will detect multipl ...

  9. In-field analysis of trace U and Pu by electrochemical pre-concentration

    SBC: AWAREABILITY TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: DTRA20B003

    AwareAbility Technologies (AAT), in collaboration with The Ohio State University (OSU), proposes to develop a small hand-held analysis kit for in-field analysis of trace amounts of Uranium (U) and Plutonium (Pu) that will meet or exceed the requirements set by DTRA. Swipe, dust, or water samples would be analyzed by this kit for isotopes and isotopic ratios to indicate the special nuclear material ...

  10. Compact Laser Drivers for Photoconductive Semiconductor Switches (16-RD-863)

    SBC: UES INC            Topic: DTRA16A004

    Compact Electromagnetic Pulse Module (EMP) capable of being arranged in series-parallel planar or cylindrical arrays is needed to simulate nuclear weapon effects. High gain optically triggered photoconductive semiconductor switches (PCSS) based on Gallium arsenide (GaAs) with low timing jitter enables the development of planar or phased arrays of modular EMP or High Power Microwave (HPM) sources. ...
