  1. Design and Realization of a Dual Function OCM/MPM for Imaging TEMPs

    SBC: Distant Focus Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Regenerative medicine is an emerging, interdisciplinary field that will result in new engineered medical products. The introduction of a high-resolution, non-destructive imaging technique that is capable of penetrating deeply into the highly-scattering scaffold medium has the means to accelerate the development and commercial utilization of these novel materials. Multi-photon microscopy (MPM) is b ...

  2. Improved Iodine Injection, Mixing and Pressure Recovery

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: MDA05011

    The primary objective of CU Aerospace's Phase I work will be to investigate innovative iodine injection concepts for the chemical oxygen-iodine laser (COIL) that improve mixing at higher total pressures. The designs will be made to significantly improve the pressure recovery of COIL systems while retaining efficiency. The results of the Phase I research will lay the foundation for developing a h ...

  3. Solid-State Electrically Controllable Rocket Motors For Safe Attitude Control Systems

    SBC: Digital Solid State Propulsion, Inc            Topic: MDA05069

    The invention of Electrically Controlled Extinguishable Solid Propellants (ECESP) over the last five years opens the door for completely new ways of controlling solid rocket motors. When the propellant is fitted with electrodes and a current of the required voltage is applied, the propellant ignites and continues to burn until the voltage is removed. Throttle control and multiple restarts have b ...

  4. Strained Layer Superlattice Using HgTe for VLWIR Detection

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: MDA04082

    Despite considerable progress with bulk HgCdTe photovoltaic technology, difficulties persist in sensing wavelengths longer than 12 microns with bulk alloy material due to the limitations imposed by high Auger recombination rates and large tunneling dark currents. Strained layer superlattices using HgTe layers and lattice mismatched layers based on ZnTe alloys are an extremely promising alternative ...

  5. Automated Wafer Polishing for Epi-ready Antimony-based Substrate Materials

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: MDA04083

    EPIR Technologies demonstrated in Phase I of this project the ability to polish small GaSb wafers to an epi-ready state. Surfaces smoother than those of typical wafers sold by the best supplier of GaSb substrates for SL growth were obtained. In Phase II, we propose to build upon the experience gained in Phase I to establish a more automated polishing procedure to consistently obtain even smoothe ...

  6. Lattice Matched Substrates for Mercury Cadmium Telluride growth by MBE

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: MDA05008

    Many advanced HgCdTe (MCT) infrared detector structures are grown by the molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) technique, which is especially sensitive to small imperfections, impurities, precipitates, and polishing damage on the substrate surface. In order to achieve very high crystalline quality MCT structures, the substrate surface must be of superior quality (MBE-quality). EPIR demonstrated the ability ...

  7. PbSnTe Thermoelectric Cooled Focal Plane Arrays on Novel Silicon Based Substrates

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: MDA05009

    The MDA's request to detect, track and discriminate long range targets requires infrared focal plane arrays (IRFPAs) that have higher sensitivities, longer cutoff wavelengths (>14 µm), larger formats (> 256 x 256), and higher operating temperatures than the current infrared technology. PbSnTe is an ideal material for the MDA's requirements. Its carrier mobilities and quantum efficiencies are comp ...

  8. Space Radiation Hardened PM Fiber

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL PHOTONICS CONSULTANTS, INC            Topic: MDA05028

    The research and development proposed herein addresses a critical deficiency existing in the space radiation survivability of high precision interferometric fber optic gyros (IFOGs), specifically the non-availability of a small diameter (80 micron), radiation hardened, polarization maintaining, optical fiber suitable for application to meet or exceed the IFOG performance goals of the space trackin ...

  9. Logistics Technology for C2BMC

    SBC: LOGOBOTS LLC            Topic: MDA05059

    C2BMC is an important component of BMDS. The logistics support tail sustainment challenges in C2BMC are related to the unusual spiral development process employed by C2BMC. Formal metrics such as MTTR and MLDT have not been defined. Nor have spare parts analysis, training needs analysis or documentation support issues been formalized. There is enormous scope for both process re-engineering and tec ...

  10. Type II Superlattices on Silicon for Infrared Photodetectors

    SBC: MP Technologies, LLC            Topic: MDA04038

    High performance infrared detectors are highly needed for next generation ballistic missile defense missions. Type II InAs/GaSb superlattices represent the most promising material system capable of delivering a more affordable and producible focal plane array (FPA) technology than the current technology, while at the same time exhibiting similar or better performance. Two of the major challenges ...
