  1. Resonant Cavity Enhanced Photo-Diodes for LWIR Communications

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: AF151050

    ABSTRACT:The LWIR spectrum is well suited for moderate- to long-range free space communications because of its atmospheric window and low scattering by dust, haze, precipitation, and fog. The recent impressive laser development of QCLs is poised to provide the high speed LWIR transmitter for such a free space communication system; a corresponding advance in LWIR detectors is needed to enable the h ...

  2. Hydrogenation of SLS for Defect Mitigation of III-V-based Infrared Detectors

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: AF151132

    ABSTRACT:Type II strained-layer superlattice (SLS) materials are predicted to have much lower Auger recombination rates than those of HgCdTe, leading to lower dark currents; however, they are limited by Shockley-Read-Hall recombination via defect states near mid-gap. Hydrogenation is a technique that has proven to be effective in electrically passivating defects in various semiconductor-based devi ...

  3. Non-Destructive Inspection Data Capture

    SBC: ANAUTICS, INC.            Topic: AF151162

    ABSTRACT: An organizational culture that promotes problem solving is necessary for success in any organization. Nondestructive Inspection (NDI) is the inspection of a structure or component in any manner that will not impair its future usefulness. The purpose of the inspection may be to detect flaws, measure geometric characteristics, determine material structure or composition, or it may characte ...

  5. SuMo SERS: A Novel, High-Reliability CBW Agent Detection System Using Surface-Modified Gold Nanoparticles as a SERS Substrate

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS) is a powerful technique for detecting and identifying target analytes, such as CBW agents, even at very small concentrations. However, traditional SERS techniques often suffer from poor reliability andreproducibility. Nanoparticle-based SERS has a tremendous advantage over bulk-surface SERS due to a very high amount of surface area for interaction in a ...

  6. Ecologically Benign Corrosion Protection by Stratified Coatings

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Military aircraft are largely constructed from special aluminum alloys, which typically have secondary precipitate phases that substantially improve mechanical strength. However, these regions also promote corrosion in such common environmental conditionsas acid rain, saltwater, and thermal cycling. The problem is significant enough that the U.S. Air Force expends approximately $1 billion per year ...
