  1. High Efficiency, Large-Area, 1550 nm InGaAs Photodiodes

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A back-illuminated planar InGaAs photodiode tested to have 95% quantum effiiency (QE) at 1550 nm, area greater than 1 mm2, low capacitance (<23 pF), and high bandwidth (>125 MHz) will be improved. Although the existing Phase I device exhibited bulk material dark current generation better than commercially available devices, the sidewall-generated dark current was found to dominate the noise ...

  2. Gigabit/Second Random Number Generator Using White Noise Generated by Delayed Optical Homodyne

    SBC: STRUCTURED MATERIALS INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    As more and more information is stored digitally and transmitted over the Internet, data and communication security becomes an ever more severe problem facing the military, the government and the financial industry, both for the United States and for all other developed countries. The need for data encryption technology is most urgent. One of the key technologies involved is the generation of trul ...

  3. Lightweight, Small Volume, CO2 Removal Technology for Underwater Breathing Apparatus (UBA) and Undersea Platforms

    SBC: Carbozyme, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM10002

    Carbozyme will develop a novel closed circuit rebreathing apparatus based on biomimetic principals. Our objective is to catalyze the conversion of carbon dioxide to ionic equivalents that can be readily absorbed into seawater, eliminating gas bubbles. This design has the unique advantage of being able to operate continuously for the full duration of the oxygen supply. Installation of the rebreathe ...

  4. Radiation Fault Analysis for 45 Nanometer CMOS-SOI VLSI Circuits

    SBC: Lynguent, Inc.            Topic: DTRA092001

    State of the art Radiation Hardened by Design (RHBD) techniques must scale down in feature size for radiation effects in 45 nm processes, and also scale up in complexity to support radiation fault analysis of VLSI circuits. Recent access to commercial 45 nm CMOS Silicon-on-Insulator (SOI) technologies has increased the interest in this technology for rad-hard electronic applications due to the in ...

  5. Continuous Wave Compressive Sensing Terahertz Spectrometer for Low Vapor Pressure Standoff Detection

    SBC: Princeton Nanotechnology Systems LLC            Topic: DTRA092005

    PNTS proposes to develop a truly novel implementation of eye-safe terahertz (THz) spectroscopy that is unprecedented in the standoff detection regime for accuracy, low cost, and portability. PNTS has teamed with SC&A, Inc., and researchers from the University of Memphis to create a world class team of research and development personnel. We are proposing a continuous wave terahertz (THz-CW) spect ...

  6. Standoff Detection of IED Laden Vehicles to Include Next Generation WMD Dispersal Device Defeat

    SBC: Dymas Research Incorporated            Topic: DTRA06008

    Standoff detection of improvised explosive devices continues to be one of the most critical tasks that security specialists must confront in a wide variety of applications, both military and civilian. There have been several approaches for standoff explosive detection. Each of them utilizes a different fundamental property of explosives to improve the sensitivity of detection. In this SBIR program ...

  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. ...

  8. Hybrid Reactive Materials for Thermobaric Weapons

    SBC: REACTIVE METALS, INC.            Topic: DTRA06010

    It is proposed to develop hybrid powders containing highly reactive filler coated by or embedded into a matrix of readily boiling, combustible binder. The binder materials, such as paraffin wax or red phosphorus are expected to ignite and burn within the expanding fireball while the reactive filler remains at the relatively low temperature at which the binder boils, and thus remains protected fro ...

  9. Programmable Fingerprint Emulator

    SBC: PHT AEROSPACE LLC            Topic: N/A

    This proposal is for the development of a technology apparatus which can dynamically synthesize a mechanical fingerprint pattern, from an electronic image or from a computer-generated artificial pattern, onto a 2-dimensional pliable surface whose surface height is modulated by protrusions in the z-axis direction. When mechanically applied to a fingerprint sensor-under-test, the synthesized modulat ...
