  1. 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 ...

  2. Covert Optically-Reporting Threat-Functionalized Nanomaterials

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: DTRA122003

    The Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) and the U.S. Strategic Command Center for Combating Weapons of Mass Destruction (SCC-WMD) requires transformational materials technology to support the intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) of personnel and materials associated with weapons of mass destruction (WMD) development, manufacturing, and proliferation. Voxtel, Inc. proposes to fa ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. HIGH EFFICIENCY COMPACT MODELING OF RADIATION EFFECTS

    SBC: Lynguent, Inc.            Topic: DTRA05001

    The objective of this research is prove the feasibility of 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 "model-in-a-day" approach is a substantial improvement over the current ad hoc approach ...

  8. Radiation Effects in Semiconductor Electronics

    SBC: Orora Design Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DTRA05001

    In this SBIR proposal, Orora Design Technologies, teaming up with Vanderbilt University and Oregon State University, and with the support from Boeing Solid-State Electronics, proposes to develop innovative mixed-mode (physics and device) and mixed-level(circuit and behavioral) simulation capacities for combined simulation of radiation and electrical performance to speed up simulation in rad hard d ...

  9. Low Cost Manufacturing Process for Sodium Iodide Detectors

    SBC: XL Sci Tech Inc            Topic: DTRA05014

    An unconventional, continuous, and flexible manufacturing process is proposed for the production of sodium iodide detectors. The steps of crystal growing and substantially simplified detector machining are integrated into one streamline process based on proven techniques with minimal capital investment. This new production process will drastically reduce the manufacturing cost. A leading commerc ...
