  1. A New Family of Optical Materials for High Power Optical Frequency Conversion

    SBC: ReyTech Corporation            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I Small Business Innovation Research project aims to develop a novel and highly versatile family of NLO crystals that may overcome the limitations of conventional technology. These materials are multifunctional and exhibit a number of unique properties that include, high nonlinearities, high damage thresholds, wide transparency range, are non-hygroscopic, and melt congruently. The uni ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Application of RSM and Optimization to Plume Signature Analysis

    SBC: SIERRA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: MDA04033

    We propose using response surface methodology (RSM) as a tool to better understand the effects of engine design parameters and operating conditions on plume signature, and to improve signature predictions through optimized selection of analysis inputs. Often rocket engine operating conditions and design variables are not well known, either because the systems being simulated are foreign, or beca ...

  4. Ballistic Missile System Innovative Power Storage Devices

    SBC: Yardney Technical Products, Inc.            Topic: MDA04037

    Safety concerns over the susceptibility of large Li-ion cells to thermal runaway during overcharge are one of the problems preventing the commercialization of these cells. New materials will be developed which will prevent thermal runaway and capacity fade from occurring. These will be substituted for a cell component that is believed to be involved in these processes.

  7. Electroluminescent Nanocrystal/Quantum Dot Based Phosphors

    SBC: E-LITE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal aims to develop quantum-dot based nanophosphors, using cladded and doped nanocrystals. These high-efficiency and fast response (nanoseconds) phosphors will be utilized in Phase II for the fabrication of full color, flexible, flat panel displays and illuminators, utilizing self-assembly techniques. Doped nanocrystals have demonstrated enhanced photolurninescence (e.g. quantum efficie ...

  8. Fully Integrated, Multiport, Planar-Waveguide Spectral Comparators and Multiplexers Based on Lithographic Holography

    SBC: LightSmyth Technologies            Topic: BMDO02011

    Photonic devices providing high performance spectral filtering, multiplexing, optical waveform processing, and signal routing will be designed, fabricated, and characterized. The devices are based on photolithographic scribing of holographic structures onto the surface of planar waveguides and operate on intra-guide signals. The holographic structures provide a manufacturable approach to 2D phot ...
