  1. Compact&Ultra-High Resolution Terahertz Spectroscopic/Fingerprint System

    SBC: Ocis Technology LLC            Topic: A10AT013

    In this STTR program we will first develop a high power, very narrow linewidth (CW), tunable, compact, room temperature terahertz (THz) spectroscopic system and then use this to begin development of experimentally obtained THz spectra. The THz source is based on our previous simulation and initial experimental demonstration of a novel nested waveguide structure using difference frequency generatio ...

  2. Low-Cost Chaos Radar

    SBC: PROPAGATION RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: A11aT001

    Propagation Research Associates, Inc., (PRA) and Duke University propose to extend the recent developments of matched filtered chaos into a low-cost high range-resolution chaotic waveform radar. In the Phase I effort, PRA and Duke will design the radar system and build a prototype waveform generator that will exploit three essential properties of chaotic waveforms that can be applied to enhance r ...

  3. Deep ultraviolet laser for Raman spectroscopy

    SBC: TIPD, LLC            Topic: A11aT005

    The University of Arizona has demonstrated high-average-power all-solid-state ultraviolet (UV) lasers based on harmonic generation in borate crystals. TIPD is proposing the development of a compact, stable high power UV laser source based on the University"s exsisting CsLiB6O10 laser, developing these sources for a wide variety of applications, both commercial and defense.

  4. Deep ultraviolet laser for Raman spectroscopy

    SBC: NP Photonics, Inc.            Topic: A11aT005

    NP Photonics proposes to develop an ultra-stable, compact, and highly reliable deep ultraviolet (UV) laser source for Raman spectroscopy. For this, we will draw on NP Photonics"long experience with the commercialization of single-frequency fiber lasers and amplifiers. In cooperation with the University of Arizona, we offer two technical approaches to produce the deep UV laser source. (1) High powe ...

  5. TerrAdapt: A system for autonomous terrain classification and terrain-adaptive driving

    SBC: Quantum Signal LLC            Topic: A11aT033

    The Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Quantum Signal LLC propose to research and develop the TerrAdapt system for terrain classification and vehicle driving control. This work will result in fundamental research advances, but will be practical enough for application on today"s COTS vehicle platforms. The system will maximize vehicle mobility due to the following key features: 1) TerrAdap ...

  6. Optical Cryocooling for Space-borne Sensors

    SBC: NP Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT02

    ABSTRACT: We propose to develop a light weight, compact, vibration-less and micro-scale cooler for space-mission conditions based on optical refrigeration using an all-fiber approach. Specifically, we will use a Tm+3-doped fiber laser to pump Tm+3-doped glass fibers, which provide the cooling action on the affixed heat source. The cooling fiber is attached to the heating sample e.g., EO-IR detect ...

  7. Fused silica ion trap chip with efficient optical collection system for timekeeping, sensing, and emulation

    SBC: TRANSLUME, INC.            Topic: AF10BT17

    ABSTRACT: The goal of this program is to develop an atom chip with a dual integrated and miniaturized optical and electromagnetic capability. We intend to develop a compact atom-chip-based system capable of producing and optically controlling and monitoring ultracold atoms with substantial reduction in complexity, size, weight and power consumption over the present state of the art. As part of ...

  8. Securing Applications by Limiting Exposure

    SBC: SoftKrypt, LLC            Topic: AF10BT18

    ABSTRACT: This STTR Phase I project addresses exploit attempts being mounted against applications code and modules with vulnerabilities that need to be protected. The team's strategy is to"blacken"or isolate applications and the inter, and intra communications paths between them and the lnternet using innovative algorithms developed by Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU). We plan to ...

  9. High Power, Room Temperature 2.4- 4 micron Mid-IR Semiconductor Laser Optimization

    SBC: NONLINEAR CONTROL STRATEGIES, INC.            Topic: AF10BT20

    ABSTRACT: The key objective of the proposal is to develop sophisticated, graphical user interface driven software tools built on fully microscopic physics to design, guide and provide feedback on growth, fabrication and evaluation of semiconductor structures that provide optical gain in the critical 2.4-4 micron wavelength window. Existing technologies are severely limited by low gain, high losse ...
