  1. Layered, 3-D RF/Optoelectronic Microstructures with Precision Kinematic Mount

    SBC: Avanti Optics Corp.            Topic: N/A

    "We propose to investigate the feasibility of using Avanti's self-aligning kinematic optoelectronic mounts for active 3-D RF/optoelectronic microstructures. We believe the unique benefit of our approach is the precision alignment of optoelectronic devicesfor coupling to the outside world (and layer-to-layer). This unique benefit is coupled with additional benefits of easy manufacturability, direct ...

  2. Mitigation of Aero-Optic Distortions by Active Flow Control

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: N/A

    "Laser beam interactions with free shear turbulent structures in the context of a recessed cavity window will be investigated. The proposed program will investigate the aero-optic degradation of a laser beam, housed within the cavity, and its remediationusing high frequency flow control. Beam wander and displacement statistics, obtained via a Position Sensitive Detector (PSD), will be complemented ...

  3. Atomic-Layer Controlled Coatings on Particles

    SBC: InnovaLight, Inc            Topic: N/A

    "This STTR focuses on developing new chemistry for coating Group IV nanocrystals primarily to enhance their luminescent properties. Research from the past decade has made it clear that the novel luminescent properties of sub-10nm silicon and germaniumnanoparticles are highly sensitive to surface states. For example, surface defects and coatings can either create energetic traps that compromise t ...

  4. High Strength, Oxidation Resistant Carbon/Carbon Composites

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    "Higher strength carbon/carbon (C/C) composites are required if such components are to replace currently used titanium products in the aircraft industry. This Phase I STTR addresses this need with the development of C/C composites with a 3-D fiberarchitecture and a reinforced carbon matrix. The 3-D preform composites have demonstrated superior compressive and tensile strength in relationship to ...

  5. Biological/Chemicall Incedent Response Monitor

    SBC: SCENPRO, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a User Configurable Incident Response Monitor (UCIRM) tool that provides a useful daily planning aid function, and automatically extends its operation to handle any rare, extraordinary events. The daily planning aid helps schedule airoperations at an installation, while providing the capability to assess the effects of an extraordinary incident, such as an attack with Chemica ...

  7. Low Pressure Source for Mass-Selective, Diffusion Assisted Epitaxy

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    Dramatic differences in the diffusivities of the constituents of novel thin film materials and structures limit material perfection under far from equilibrium growth conditions. We will develop a new light-mass ion source, compatible with the low pressurerequirements of molecular beam epitaxy (MBE), to provide selective enhancement of the motion of surface atoms. Helium or hydrogen ions incident ...

  8. Next Generation, Polymeric-based Ablative Nanostructured Materials

    SBC: Systems & Materials Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Nanocomosites using montmorillonite nanoclays dispersed in phenolic resins were shown in Phase I to make significant improvements in standard ablative materials, including erosion rate, mass loss, and heat-soaked bondline temperature. Nanoclay loadings of2% by weight replaced an equal amount of carbon black filler in MX-4926, the standard ablative prepreg for rocket nozzle asemblies. Preliminary ...

  9. Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Force Microscopy Using Ultrasensitive Oscillators

    SBC: XIDEX CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Xidex Corporation and The University of Texas at Austin propose to demonstrate the feasibility of single nuclear spin detection using ultrasensitive mechanical oscillators. Two oscillator configurations will be investigated: high-Q siliconmultiple-torsional oscillators, and carbon nanotubes fabricated for use as oscillators using Xidex?s proprietary method. The work will build on earlier success o ...

  10. High Performance Electric-Field Sensor Based on Enhanced Electro-Optic Polymer Refilled Slot Photonic Crystal Waveguides

    SBC: Omega Optics, Inc.            Topic: AF11BT01

    ABSTRACT: This Phase II STTR research proposal aims to demonstrate an antenna coupled phase modulator based on an Electro-optic (EO) polymer refilled slot photonic crystal waveguide (PCW) for operation in the Q band. The goal is to detect field strengths of 100uW/m^2 in an Intensity Modulation Direct Detection (IMDD) scheme using subwavelength antennas. The EO polymer is the SEO125 provided by Dr ...
