  1. 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

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Abrasion protection, ballistic tolerance, and laser protection for windows/sensor on rotary wing aircraft.

    SBC: INTER MATERIALS, LLC            Topic: SOCOM07007

    Some of the US Army SOCOM greatest concerns are to maintain the helicopter pilot’s ability to see clearly and to provide helicopter windscreens with a greater degree of erosion/abrasion protection than what is being currently afforded. Recent developments on polymer coatings demonstrate the potential to meet and exceed all erosion/abrasion resistance and optical requirements by using plasma depo ...

  5. Geo And Ortho Rectified Video With Fused 3d Mapping, Light Detection And Ranging (LIDAR), And Live Video Overlays

    SBC: Mosaic ATM, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM09003

    The Mosaic ATM team proposes an innovative real-time exploitation framework for video and Lidar processing whose structure can be reconfigured at optempo to meet evolving requirements. We propose to leverage the tremendous commercial investment in products, such as Google Earth, for 3D coincident display of Lidar and video streams processed using mature technology components whose integration wi ...

  6. (Shape Memory Integrated Vital Energy Resource) SHIVER-Suit for SOF Divers

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: SOCOM09001

    NanoSonic would develop ultra-lightweight (0.98 g/cc), breathable, nanostructured, yet large area Metal Rubber™ Skins and Textiles with active thermal control. The proposed SHIVER-Suits (Shape Memory Integrated Vital Energy Resource) for U.S. Special Operation Forces are expected to extend both the comfort and time of the Divers’ missions. Shape Memory-Metal Rubber™ garments based on shape ...

  7. Fabrication of Advanced Waveguide Structures for Efficient Violet and Near-UV Generation

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR Phase I effort will establish the feasibility of fabricating advanced waveguide structures in potassium titanyl phosphate (KTP) capable of efficiently generating 25 to 40 mW of frequency converted light in the 395 to 480 nm. The key innovation in this effort is to utilize KTP waveguides in a single-pass frequency doubling device to efficiently produce the desired laser wavelengths and po ...

  8. High Efficiency Up conversion Single-Photon-Detector for 1550 nm Signal

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: N/A

    This NIST Phase II SBIR effort will two low noise single photon detectors using MgO doped LiNbO3 (LN) periodically poled waveguides and a 980nm (or similar appropriate wavelength) pump to up convert 1550nm photons to 600nm to allow for detection by photomultiplier tube (PMT). The key innovation is using low noise periodically poled waveguides with a long wavelength (1800nm) pump leading to higher ...
