  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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. ...

  7. Man Portable Hand Held Wireless Network Survey Interrogation Tool (WiNSIT)

    SBC: Nu Waves Ltd.            Topic: SOCOM09004

    The ability to Find, Fix, and Finish enemy combatants is highly desirable to winning wars. The capability to positively identify High Value Targets / High Value Individuals is one method to insure success in any conflict, specifically counterinsurgency. Surgical precision in tracking known terrorists, and the ability to remove them from the battlefield allows for fast and decisive change within ...

  8. Novel Energetic Materials

    SBC: Powdermet, Inc.            Topic: DTRA05002

    Reactive Warheads increase lethality by igniting propellants and fuel, by melting and destroying electronic components, by providing blast overpressure inside of a target after impact, and by providing thermal energy to destroy chemical and bilogical agents. In the Phase I program, Powdermet demonstrated the production and fabrication of Metal-Polymer-salt micro/nano-scale engineered composites ...

  9. Tailorable Thermobaric Charge

    SBC: Powdermet, Inc.            Topic: DTRA06010

    The need for novel weapons to defeat urban targets and rapidly immobalize enemy combatants hiding in bunkers, caves, and basements requires new weapons and tactics. Thermobaric warheads can provide tailored blast response optimized for the defeat of these targets with low collateral damage. In this Phase I SBIR program, Powdermet will develop surface-coated metallic particles that can deliver ta ...

  10. Autonomous Airborne Chemical/Biological Cloud Detection Sensor

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: DTRA082011

    Detection of chemical and biological warfare agents in a real-world setting is an increasingly urgent problem. Many of the current state-of-the-art sensors are aqueous based and require large biomolecules, such as antibodies, to achieve binding of the target molecule and subsequent reporting of the binding event. These technical hurdles are a drawback when considering deployment of these technol ...
