  2. Platinum Silicide Micromechanical Infrared Photon Detector


    The proposed work is intended to lead to the development of a revolutionary class of photon detectors capable of operating at ambient temperatures with fast response times. Specific benefits of the proposed detector include: i) Low cost versions can readily be reduced-to-practice due to inherent simplicity of the sensing element compared to existing photon or thermal detectors, ii) there is no nee ...

  3. A Manufacturable Packaging Technology for Monolithic WDM La

    SBC: Photonic Packaging            Topic: N/A

    PPT, in collaboration with the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, proposes to develop a manufacturable packaging technology for monolithic Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) laser arrays for all-optical fiber communications. The packaging technology will include coupling from a monolithic laser array to individual fibers and a microwave feed for each of the individual elements, all in a hermetically s ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Remotely Detecting Damage in Critical Structural Bolted Joints

    SBC: Specialized Analysis            Topic: N/A

    novel remote non-destructive inspection and evaluation (N I&E) method for detecting and quantifying damage in critical bolted joints on military and commercial structures is proposed. The NDI&E method utilizes remotely located impedance sensor to periodically monitor changes in the structural stiffness, mass and damping. Damage to the joint fasteners or connection materials causes direct changes i ...

  6. Laser Induced Surface Modification of Metals for Low-cost Manaufacturing of Improved Wear Surfaces


    Surface Treatment Technologies, Inc., proposes the application of Laser Induced Surface Improvement (LISI) technology for the high-throughput, low-cost modification of metal surfaces to promote enhanced wear and impact resistance. The LISI approach involves the application of laser energy to a small spot and inducing a shallow (< lmm) melt-pool on the surface of a base metal. Included in this melt ...

  7. Technique for Passive Hardening Against Natural and Induced Environments


    A newly demonstrated technology (patent pending) offers unique solutions to some of the problems presented. The process is called Laser Induced Surface Improvement (LISI). Two years of laboratory development/testing have demonstrated its ability to produce surface alloys with interesting characteristics. Surfaces are composed of a nonequilibrium alloy of the substrate and selected precursor materi ...

  8. Optical Random Access Memory

    SBC: TEMPLEX TECHNOLOGY CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Recent laboratory demonstrations have shown that time-domain persistent spectral holeburning memory can achieve record areal densities and density-bandwidth products. The same work has shown that many kilobits of data can be spectrally multiplexed within single spatial storage locations. These factors, taken together, open the door to an entirely new class of optical data storage, i.e., read/write ...

  9. On-Wafer Measurement Accuracy Assessment Tool Kit

    SBC: Cascade Microtech, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The traceability of on-wafer calibration standards has long been an issue among the microwave measurement community, and the proliferation of new calibration methods, elements, and applications only exacerbates the problem. This diversity in calibration needs has made traceability of a physical reference impractical. As a result, the NIST developed a procedure which can compare on-wafer calibrat ...
