  1. III-nitride 1.5 Micron Photonic Devices on Si Substrates

    SBC: III-N Technology, Inc            Topic: A10AT015

    Research in silicon photonics has received much attention in recent years for its potential to utilize well developed silicon processing technology. A broad range of linear and nonlinear silicon photonic devices such as modulators, splitters, switches and detectors have been demonstrated. However, the most important challenge in silicon photonics thus far is the difficulty of making electrically p ...

  4. Nanodielectrics with Nonlinear Response for High Power Microwave Generation

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: AF08T030

    Fine grained BST ceramics with high density has attractive properties including nonlinearity, low dielectric loss and high dielectric breakdown strength to realize high tunability. In Phase I program we demonstrated that modification of powder characteristics and composition in nano BST powder resulted in greater than 65% tunability at 250KV/cm with ~500KV/cm breakdown strength and Q value greate ...

  6. A Toolkit for Deployable Best Practices

    SBC: Discovery Machine, Inc.            Topic: OSD08T002

    Discovery Machine, Inc. (DMI) is partnered with Pennsylvania State University and SAIC (the DMI team) to produce a best practices capture system that goes beyond the storage and dissemination of lessons learned. The proposed system will leverage warfighters’ specific knowledge as deployable knowledge assets. These knowledge assets will be executable best practices that can be embedded in job ...

  7. Dynamics-based Nondestructive Structural Health Monitoring Techniques

    SBC: Fbs, Inc.            Topic: AF08T016

    FBS, Inc. and Penn State, during Phase I of its Air Force Phase I STTR contract, demonstrated high sensitivity defect detection in both isotropic metallic and anisotropic composite structures using a novel ultrasonic modal analysis technique (UMAT). The resulting technology which is a merge of vibration modal analysis and the ultrasonic guided wave technique has shown great potential for providing ...

  9. Advanced Nonlinear Transmission Lines as High Power Microwave Sources

    SBC: HEM TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: AF09BT14

    Current high power microwave technology typically consists of electron beam sources which require high vacuum and large magnets. Such systems are typically difficult to use in the harsh environment associated with the modern battlefield. These systems are very sensitive to vibrations and typically can be easily damaged if dropped or launched from a weapon system. Nonlinear transmission lines, N ...

  10. Plasmon-Enhanced Laser Desorption Ionization

    SBC: Ionwerks, Inc.            Topic: AF09BT34

    Surface analysis of many classes of large polymers (e.g. non-polar synthetic polymer) by laser desorption mass spectrometry (LDMS) is not possible using existing MALDI matrices. Here, we uniquely address this problem by combining two recent proprietary commercial products available exclusively from Ionwerks. 1) A nanoparticulate ion implanter decorates a surface with size selected metal or alloy n ...
