  1. Improved Microcalorimeter Detectors for X-ray Chemical Shift Mapping

    SBC: STAR CRYOELECTRONICS LLC            Topic: 9020868TT

    X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy is a widely used and extremely sensitive analytical technique for qualitative and quantitative chemical analysis. Superconducting Transition Edge Sensor (TES) microcalorimeter detectors have now been developed that achieve an energy resolution of 2 eV for 1.5 keV X-rays, which is sufficient to enable the measurement of the small shift of the X-ray line position that ...

  2. Dynamic Frequency Passive Millimeter-Wave Radiometer Based on Optical Up-Conversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 941D

    In the proposed effort, we will leverage this extensive experience and capabilities to realize a frequency agile mmW radiometer that can cover the range of DC-110 GHz and can be scaled to DC-200 GHz under Phase II. Ours is a photonic system that multiplies and up-coverts a low-frequency reference signal onto an optical carrier (laser) using EO modulation, then uses the modulation sidebands to inj ...

  3. Single Crystal Self-Assembly

    SBC: IBEAM MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: SB131001

    iBeam Materials practices a technology for fabricating large-area crystalline-aligned coatings (films) on polycrystalline substrates using ion-beam assisted deposition (IBAD). Crystalline-aligned films of MgO are routinely made using IBAD with grain alignment of a few degrees. This process was originally developed for manufacturing of high temperature superconductor wire in km lengths. We propose ...

  4. Massively Redundant Electromechanical Actuators

    SBC: ThermoDynamic Films LLC            Topic: SB132005

    We propose to design, build and analyze Massively Redundant Electromechanical (MREM) Actuators based on multilayer, electrostatic motors. The key element is combining many wafer-scale components to produce a highly reliable large-scale actuator. The device consists of many individual actuator modules which allows it to be scaled up or down in size, force and power. Each module contains interleave ...

  5. Nano-Optomechanical Massive MEMS Accelerometer (NOMMA)

    SBC: A-TECH CORPORATION            Topic: ST13A002

    Inertial navigation systems (INS) are a critical asset to the DoD in environments where GPS is either denied or unavailable. At the heart of these systems are precision acceleration and rotation sensors. Recently, MEMS-based accelerometers have found wide
