  4. Active Silicon Nanophotonics based on Photonic Crystal with Quantum Dots

    SBC: Altair Center, Llc.            Topic: AF04T013

    ALTAIR Center in cooperation with University of Rochester proposes to develop a new class of active nanophotonic devices based on quantum dots embedded into photonic crystal microstructures fabricated in silicon-on-insulator waveguides. Due to extremely strong nonlinear optical and electro-optical properties and extremely short switching times, the silicon-based photonic crystal microstructures wi ...

  5. Advanced Composites with Nanoscale Reinforcement

    SBC: Nanolab, Inc            Topic: AF04T020

    Advanced fiber composites are fabricated by automated 3D weaving and braiding processes. These weaving processes use tows of micron diameter fibers, to create preforms for resin infiltration. The interaction between the resin matrix and the fibers can be potentially increased by creating nanoscale features on the carbon fibers. NanoLab is expert in the synthesis of carbon nanotubes and their app ...

  6. Advanced Optical Diagnostics/Modeling Platform for Plasma Assisted Combustion in Vitiated Air

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF13AT04

    ABSTRACT: Modern gas-turbine engines designs for the next-generation warfighter need to reduce exhaust gas temperatures to reduce effective thermal footprint thereby improving the mission capability. In such situations, high-altitude engine operation is often limited by the overall combustion efficiency, lean flame blow out (LBO) limit, and combustion instabilities that results in narrower opera ...

  7. Automated Diagnosis of Usability Problems Using Statistical Computational Methods

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: AF03T001

    Poorly designed software and hardware systems are inconvenient at best; at worst, they are deadly. Usability evaluation techniques are designed to detect the potential for disasters and inefficiencies in poorly designed software. However, usability analyses are prone to failure due to conflicting usability frameworks, incomplete usability reports, and inadequate analysis tools. Aptima and the Ce ...
