  1. Narrowband Perfect Absorber for Infrared Sensing

    SBC: Srico Inc            Topic: A12aT023

    SRICO proposes to combine metamaterial narrowband absorbers and SRICO-proprietary thin film lithium tantalate (TFLT) pyroelectric thermal detectors to produce ultra low cost, size, weight and power (SWaP) room temperature stand-off chemical sensors. Metamaterial narrowband absorber elements will be integrated into the TFLT pyroelectric detector process to provide conversion of radiation to heat, w ...

  5. Durable CMAS Resistant Thermal Barrier Coatings

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: A13002

    Thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) are susceptible to damage under service conditions due to environmental contaminants such as calcium-magnesium-aluminum-silicon-oxide systems (CMAS). In this Phase I SBIR program UES, Inc. proposes to investigate the feasibility of rationally selected TBCs and their architectures for CMAS resistance and durability. Highly ranked TBC architectures will be selected fo ...
