  2. Microfabricated Broadband Connectors for Frequencies Above 100 GHz

    SBC: Nuvotronics, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The region of the electromagnetic spectrum from 100 GHz to 400 GHz is currently underutilized but an area of exciting promise. Although atmospheric attenuation is higher in this region, the high frequency enables higher bandwidth operation. Transmit and receive components are also small resulting in the potential for lightweight miniature systems. Sub-millimeter waves also have the unique ability ...

  3. Non-contact Inline Material Sensor for Measurement of Electrical Properties of Nanofiber Films

    SBC: PANERATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    PaneraTech is proposing a non-contact dual sensor for broadband and real-time characterization of thin nanofiber films during the manufacturing. Our solution offers several unique aspects that are ideal for this application. For instance, it uses a dual CPW sensor for low frequencies and free space transmission system for higher frequency band. Our proposed sensor system is also equipped with high ...

  4. Improved Microcalorimeter Detectors for X-Ray Chemical Shift Mapping

    SBC: STAR CRYOELECTRONICS LLC            Topic: N/A

    X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy is a widely used and extremely sensitive analytical technique for qualitative as well as quantitative chemical analysis. Superconducting Transition Edge Sensor (TES) microcalorimeter detectors have now been developed that achieve an energy resolution of 2 eV (full width at half maximum) for 1.5 keV X-rays, which is sufficient to enable the measurement of the small s ...

  7. Mesoporous CO2 Scrubber Materials for Underwater Breathing Apparatus Platforms

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: SOCOM10002

    Current and future military forces are moving to be lighter, faster, and stealthier in order to maintain an operational advantage. For example, underwater combat activities require light and small equipment for the submarines or the divers to efficiently complete the assigned missions. Among those systems required by underwater activities, breathing air supply equipment is especially critical fo ...

  10. High Char Yield Multifunctional Textile Finishes

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    A need exists for advances in non toxic treatments for cover and barrier fabrics. Since polybrominated materials have been banned in many European countries and the production of a number of brominated additives terminated in the U.S. as well, future technologies must focus on non-halogenated treatments. In general, non-halogenated treatments (phosphates and borates) are not durable to aqueous sol ...
