  1. "Segmented" Solid Host Dye Lasers

    SBC: Jet Process Corporation            Topic: N/A

    TO DATE, CANDIDATE HOST MATERIALS, SUCH AS PLASTICS AND SOL-GEL GLASSES, AS WELL AS METHODS OF HOST FABRICATION EMPLOYING THEM, HAVE NOT PTOVEN OPTIMAL. THEY REQUIRE CONVERSION OF A DYE-DOPED LIQUID PRECURSOR TO THE FINAL SOLID HOST; WE PROPOSE AN ALTERNATIVE FABRICATION APPROACH BASED ON VAPOR DEPOSITION AND EXPLORATION OF OTHER MATERIALS. HIGH QUALITY THIN GLASS PLATE OR OPTICAL FIBER "SEGMENTS" ...

  2. 1-picosecond InGaAs Photodetector For Operation At 1300-1600 Nm

    SBC: TeraMetrix, LLC            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROPOSAL IS TO DEVELOP A 1-PICOSECOND MONOLITHICALLY INTEGRATABLE PHOTODETECTOR WITH 0.2 A/W RESPONSIVITY FOR ULTIMATE USE AT 1600 NM. THE DETECTOR WILL RELY ON THE INTRISIC CARRIER LIFETIME OF THE SEMICONDUCTOR FOR ITS SPEED AND ON SUBMICROMETER-SPACED INTERDIGITATED FINGER ELECTRODES FOR ITS SENSITIVITY. ONE SEMICONDUCTOR ALREADY DEVELOPED FOR SHORTER WAVELENGTH APPLICATION ...

  3. 3D IMAGING OF OPAQUE OBJECTS BY USING PHASE RETRIEVAL

    SBC: ADVANCED MODULAR POWER SYSTEMS            Topic: N/A

    As an alternative to holographic laser radar, AMPS will develop a 3-D imaging concept that collects far-field intensity speckle patterns. This kind of measurement greatly relaxes the tolerances on vibration and coherence length. However, phase retrieval will be required to retrieve a 3-D image. Phase retrieval algorithms typically utilize some type of prior knowledge about the object. In industria ...

  4. A High Performance, Low Temperature Li-ion Battery Using a Metal Alloy Anode

    SBC: T/J Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "This BMDO Phase I proposal is aimed at developing a high performance Li-ion battery using a metal alloy anode for low-temperature applications. The anode materials are based on nano-structured metal alloys that directly address two major limitations ofcommercial graphite anodes: First, the materials allow faster lithium diffusion than in graphite. Second, the materials are compatible with elect ...

  5. A Novel Route to Lightweight Nanocomposites

    SBC: Mers, Llc            Topic: N/A

    "In this Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project, we propose to develop a novel nanocomposite fabrication method involving adiabatic expansion supercritical fluid (SCF) mixtures of polymer and layered clay. We propose to fabricate nanocompositesfrom polypropylene, Nylon 6, and Nylon 6,6 resins with montmorillonite/fluorohectorite as the clay filler using CO2 as the SCF. The primary ob ...

  6. A Phase I SBIR Proposal to Lower the Cost and Improve the Manufacturing of Li-ion Batteries

    SBC: Yardney Technical Products, Inc.            Topic: MDA06026

    Lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries are attractive candidates for use as power sources in military, aerospace, commercial, and vehicular applications because they have high specific energy (up to 200 Wh/kg) and energy density (~ 500 Wh/L) and long cycle life (1,000 – 80,000 cycles currently depending on the depth of cycling). However, the production of these batteries for defense applications is ofte ...

  7. A rapid processing method for large, low-expansion, light-weight mirrors

    SBC: M CUBED TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "M Cubed has conducted preliminary work to fabricate near-zero coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) fiber reinforced ceramic composites. These composites have high specific stiffness and thermal stability (thermal conductivity/CTE). M Cubed has alsodeveloped ways to rapidly polish surfaces of various materials to Angstrom level surface finish. In the proposed program, these technologies will be ...

  8. A Scalable Full-Wave Method for Accurate Assessment of Target Signatures Using Fast Algorithms and Hardware Acceleration

    SBC: VIRTUAL EM INC.            Topic: MDA11039

    A computational tool will be developed for predicting scattering from target candidates suitable for missile defense such as missles and decoys. Fast algorithms will be employed as well as hardware acceleration (for multi-core CPUs and GPUs) for speeding up computations. The tool will be modular for allowing future enhancements for handling larger numerical problems.

  9. A Small, Light, Weight, Low Power, Low Cost, FT-IR Spectrometer

    SBC: On-Line Technologies, Inc            Topic: N/A

    There are many military, commercial, and medical applications for a small, rugged, and inexpensive infrared (IR) spectrometer. A Fourier Transform Infrared (FT-IR) spectrometer would be an ideal tool for such measurements; however, FT-IR spectrometers are very sensitive to vibration and subject to misalignment from mechanically or thermally induced forces. To help overcome these barriers, BMDO pro ...
