  1. Phase-stabilized 1-GHz Fiber-laser Frequency Combs at 2-5micron for Coherent Fourier Transform Spectroscopy

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: N/A

    A GHz-rate phase-stabilized fiber-laser frequency comb system is proposed to be used as a light source for coherent Fourier transform spectroscopy. The system will be developed based on our proprietary glass/fiber technology, which features a low-cost, robust, highly stable, mid-infrared light source that enables the development of a robust portable c-FTIR spectrometer for absorption measurements ...

  2. Dynamic Light Scattering Instrumentation Using Field Programmable Gate Array-based Digital Signal Processing

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    An existing low-cost FPGA-based processing platform will be demonstrated with fiber-coupling to single-photon detectors, to perform photon-arrival time stamping with

  3. High Efficiency, Large-area, 1550 nm InGaAs Photodiodes

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A stable, well characterized InGaAs materials growth and photodetector fabrication process will be used to fabricate matched photodiodes optimized for balanced homodyne detection. The 1-mm-diameter p-i-n photodetectors will be manufactured back-illuminated with a 5-micron absorber, allowing residual light to reflect off the front-side metal to make a double pass through the active layer. Ultra-hig ...

  4. Efficient Low-Dark-Count Detector for Photon Counting

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Voxtel has demonstrated efficient high-speed photon counting with thresholded linear-mode avalanche photodiode (APD) receivers using multi-gain-stage InGaAs/InAIAs APDs. In contrast to Geiger APDs, thresholded photon-counting linear APD receivers are thought not to suffer afterpulsing, and can support maximum count rates (MCR) up to 2 or 3 orders of magnitude faster than Geiger APDs. However, the ...

  5. Miniature Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (MUAV)

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: SOCOM05011

    This proposal will design, develop, and demonstrate a self-contained probe that will provide sensor videos on-demand to aircraft operators. A Miniature Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (MUAV) is proposed to meet this requirement. The MUAV will be capable of being launched from existing airborne aircraft platforms, including helicopters, and will be capable of being controlled by the aircraft operator in fl ...

  6. Chemical and Biological Agent Deny

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: DTRA06012

    ACR proposes the development of novel composite systems for air burst munitions capable of releasing high temperature over an extended area. Investigation will use Fibrous Monolith (FM) processing and a cost-efficient, innovative reactive composite system to form an airburst system that will generate an expanding thermal cloud. The proposed FM system would have a cellular structure, consisting o ...

  7. HIGH EFFICIENCY COMPACT MODELING OF RADIATION EFFECTS

    SBC: Lynguent, Inc.            Topic: DTRA05001

    The objective of this research is to develop beta versions of tools for automatically migrating radiation effects predicted in TCAD level tools to compact modeling tools. This transition will enable compact models that possess radiation effects to be quickly generated, which can then be used in circuit design activity. This approach is a substantial improvement over the current ad hoc approaches. ...
