The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Computational tools for reliable prediction of complex hypersonic flows

    SBC: Next Frontier LLC            Topic: AF17AT014

    In order to enable reliable predictions based on full scale vehicle simulations relevant to high-speed ISR missions, detailed interactions among various nonequilibrium physical phenomena and their coupling to turbulent flow structures, characterized by a broad range of length/time scales, need to be accurately modeled. Although detailed predictions can be obtained using detailed state-to-state kin ...

  2. High Performance MWIR/LWIR LED Wafers on Si Substrates for Scene Projectors

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: AF16AT22

    The state-of-the-art in infrared scene projection uses micro-machined resistor arrays. These arrays have limited frame-rate, dynamic range, and can be cost prohibitive as the array size increases. Alternative technologies are required. The most promising is infrared light emitting diodes (IR LED) based on InAs/GaSb type-II superlattices (T2SL) or W-Quantum Wells, with the ability to tune the bandg ...

  4. Direct Measurement of Bondline Temperature During Composite Repair/Fabrication

    SBC: ADVANCED PROCESSING TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: AF161115

    Achieving desired bondline temperatures is critical to ensuring proper wetting, flow and cure when repairing composite structures. Under this multi-phase SBIR project a novel method for measuring/managing cure temperature in the bondline is being pursued based on patented amorphous microwire temperature sensors that are placed permanently within the bondline and read remotely via low-frequency ele ...

  6. Resonant Cavity Enhanced Photo-Diodes for LWIR Communications

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: AF151050

    LWIR is well suited for free space communications because of its atmospheric window and low scattering by dust, precipitation, and fog. Due to recent developments of QCLs, the technology is poised to provide the high speed LWIR transmitter for such a free space communication system. However, a corresponding advance in LWIR detectors for the high-speed receiver is needed. The specifics of the LWIR ...

  7. Hydrogenation of SLS for Defect Mitigation of III-V-based Infrared Detectors

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: AF151132

    Infrared devices fabricated using III-V strained-layer superlattice (SLS) materials have many advantages over present state-of-the-art HgCdTe detectors, e.g., cost, manufacturability, operability, and theoretically lower Auger generation rates. However, due to the presence of inherent growth related defects the SLS materials have not achieved full potential. While growth improvements are anticipat ...

  8. Improved MWIR LED Arrays on GaAs and Si Substrates for Scene Projectors

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: AF16AT22

    The state-of-the-art in infrared scene projection uses micro-machined resistor arrays. While a proven technology, these arrays are limited in frame-rate and dynamic range, and can be prohibitively costly as array size increases. Alternative technologies ...

  9. Resonant Cavity Enhanced Photo-Diodes for LWIR Communications

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: AF151050

    ABSTRACT:The LWIR spectrum is well suited for moderate- to long-range free space communications because of its atmospheric window and low scattering by dust, haze, precipitation, and fog. The recent impressive laser development of QCLs is poised to provide the high speed LWIR transmitter for such a free space communication system; a corresponding advance in LWIR detectors is needed to enable the h ...

  10. Hydrogenation of SLS for Defect Mitigation of III-V-based Infrared Detectors

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: AF151132

    ABSTRACT:Type II strained-layer superlattice (SLS) materials are predicted to have much lower Auger recombination rates than those of HgCdTe, leading to lower dark currents; however, they are limited by Shockley-Read-Hall recombination via defect states near mid-gap. Hydrogenation is a technique that has proven to be effective in electrically passivating defects in various semiconductor-based devi ...
