  1. Chemometric Support for Temperature-programmed Sensing System

    SBC: Eigenvector Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Temperature Programmed Sensing (TPS) system developed at NIST presents many opportunities and unique challenges. The data output from the system can be quite complex and there are many opportunities to optimize the system for specific sensing scenarios. We propose a program aimed at characterizing the system so that potential problems (such as system drift) can be solved early so that the full ...

  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. Renewable Electric Energy Source for Special Operations Force (SOF) Maritime Combatant Craft

    SBC: INFINIA CORPORATION            Topic: SOCOM05001

    Stirling Technology Company (STC) has developed several Free-Piston Stirling Engine (FPSE) generators with outputs ranging from 10 W to 3 kW. These engines are very quiet, adaptable to virtually any fuel, and can run continuously. However, existing units are relatively heavy. STC proposes to leverage over 2 decades of development into a Special Operations Power System (SOPS) that directly addresse ...

  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. Ballistic Missile System Innovative Radiation Hardened/Tolerant Electronics Products

    SBC: Orora Design Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA03056

    Orora Design Technologies, teaming up ATK Mission Research and Boeing Solid-State Electronics, with the support from Oregon State University and Vanderbilt University, proposes to develop innovative mixed-mode and mixed-level simulation capacities for combined simulation of radiation and electrical performance to speed up simulation in radiation hard designs of VLSI circuits. The ultimate goal is ...
