  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. Ultra compact, efficient, and reliable GaN based deep UV laser for Raman spectroscopy

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A11aT005

    Leveraging Agiltron"s industrial leading developments and production of Raman instruments, external cavity laser and nonlinear optical components, we propose to develop a new class of high performance compact deep ultraviolet (UV) laser for Raman spectroscopy. The approach is closely coupled with recent progress in GaN blue laser and external resonator enhanced second harmonic generation (SHG) to ...

  6. Compact, Rugged, and Low-Cost, Wavelength-Versatile Burst Laser

    SBC: Q-PEAK INCORPORATED            Topic: A11aT009

    Q-Peak Inc., in collaboration with The Johns Hopkins University (JHU), proposes to develop an extremely compact, air-cooled, lightweight, multi-wavelength, burst-mode laser based on the combination of a Q-switched, Nd-doped, oscillator-amplifier laser, and efficient, robust nonlinear optical frequency converters.

  7. Rapid Ethnographic Assessment and Data management Integration Toolkit (READ-IT)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A11aT011

    Obtaining support from the local population is crucial for successful counterinsurgency (COIN) operations. US forces often fail to adequately understand the ethnographic characteristics of foreign populationswarfighters need access to ethnographic methods which help them to rapidly capture and interpret cultural, social, and economic data. A warfighter in high-risk areas needs easy-to-use tools th ...

  8. Electrochemical Generation of Hydrogen from Methanol

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: A11aT012

    The US Army has identified limitations of the DMFC (poor efficiency) and RMFC (complex system, high temperature process) approaches, and is soliciting innovation that will enable high efficiency hydrogen generation from methanol in a simple approach that has minimal thermal signature. It is the objective of this project to address these needs through the development of a novel hybrid electrochemic ...

  9. Bio-Inspired Copolymer Membranes for Direct Methanol Fuel Cells

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: A11aT013

    Implementation of new technologies for soldier survivability often requires lightweight and reliable power sources. Direct-Methanol Fuel Cells (DMFCs) are attractive both in military and consumer electronics applications where their energy density, power output, and lifetime make them ideally suited to address weight and power limitations. DMFCs have been slow to materialize especially due to dras ...

  10. High-capacity and Cost-effective Manufacture of Chloroperoxidase

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: A11aT014

    The low cost chloroperoxidase can be potentially applicable to the inactivation of chemical agents due to its exceptional stability, broad substrate profile, and high catalytic efficiency. However, the high cost of producing large amounts of CPO is a major obstacle precluding the formulation and field deployment of this enzyme for chemical agent decontamination. Infoscitex Corporation (IST) and ...
