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

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF02T005

    Epitaxial growth of non-equilibrium thin-film structures, which have high quality and abrupt interfaces, is still the main challenge that limits many material systems for applications in semiconductor devices. In this STTR Phase II program, SVT Associates (SVTA) in collaboration with the University of Minnesota (UMN) will develop a new RF plasma light-mass ion source, compatible with the low-pres ...

  2. Novel MgZnO-based spintronic materials and devices.

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF03T020

    This Phase I STTR project addresses the development of novel Zinc Oxide-based spintronic devices. The spintronic devices will find widespread application in civilian and military markets offering new generation of transistors, lasers and integrated magnetic sensors. The objective of the Phase I effort is to explore novel doping schemes to achieve room temperature ferromagnetism in ZnMgO materials ...

  3. Low-Noise Avalanche Photodiodes for Mid-IR Applications

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF04T021

    Avalanche photodiodes (APDs) are the detector of choice for low noise, high speed, high sensitivity photodetectors. Applications in the mid-IR (3-5 micron) include optical trace gas detection, LADAR, quantum cryptography and targeting countermeasures. Currently there are no commercially available APDs operating in this wavelength range. To address this need, this Phase I program will investigat ...

  4. Development of III-V Terahertz Quantum Cascade Lasers

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF03T024

    The purpose of this Phase I study is to develop quantum cascade laser (QCL) with terahertz (THz) emission. Terahertz photons have energies which lie in the regime between optical photons and high frequency radio waves and have many important commercial and military applications. In the QCL, quantum wells (QWs) and injection layers are grown in a III-V semiconductor superlattice. The QWs and barr ...

  5. Voxel-based Fusion (VOXION)

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF13AT01

    ABSTRACT: In ISR applications, multiple sensors can be employed to achieve more accurate parameters of interest on targets, improving discrimination and detection. But, the proliferation of sensor systems has created a large volume of multi-sensor data across a number of physical spectra. These resulting measurements can be so disparate that traditional aggregation methods perform poorly given h ...

  6. Decision Making under Uncertainty for Dynamic Spectrum Access

    SBC: INFOBEYOND TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: AF13AT02

    ABSTRACT: Due to scarcity of spectrum, Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA) becomes a needed technology to improve the utilization of electromagnetic spectrum for DoD satellite communication. However, current DSA approaches are developed for terrestrial communications without addressing the unique challenges for SATCOM environments such as error-prone spectrum sensing, high mobility, and large coverage. ...

  7. Secure Efficient Cross-domain Protocols

    SBC: INFOBEYOND TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: AF13AT08

    ABSTRACT: Coordinating and sharing information across multi-level security (MLS) networks are of great interest in many military applications. However, it is very challenging to accomplish those goals due to the heterogeneous security classifications of different network domains. The recent proposed cross-domain solutions (CDS) provide initial steps to make such applications possible. However, th ...

  8. Sensitivity Analysis Methods for Complex, Multidisciplinary Systems

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC SIMULATIONS            Topic: AF11BT06

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this proposal is to develop efficient sensitivity analysis methods based on adjoint techniques for multi-disciplinary time-dependent problems. The approach is based on the discrete adjoint, which is derived and implemented on a software component basis, with the various multidisciplinary software components being linked together through a Python interface, thus preservi ...
