The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Atomic Layer Deposition of Highly Conductive Metals

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: A17A-T001

    Novel photonic structures, such as periodic metal-dielectric photonic bandgap structures (MDPBG) have the potential to revolutionize the field of optical windows. The large mismatch in the permittivities of the metal and dielectric creates resonant tunneling, which allows for high transmission in regions where metals are typically opaque. This property makes MDPBGs very attractive for screening or ...

  2. Thin Film Deposition of Highly Conductive Metals for Sensor Applications

    SBC: Summit Information Solutions, Inc.            Topic: A17A-T001

    Summit Information Solutions, Inc. (Summit) proposes to use a mature thin film deposition technology, widely adopted by the microelectronics industry, to deposit pinhole-free thin films of copper and silver metal (< 10nm) onto oxide substrates. While there has been some success with using this thin film deposition technique to deposit these films onto metal substrates, a viable, repeatable methodo ...

  4. Scalable Fabrication of Efficient Flexible Perovskite Photovoltaic Modules for Wireless Power

    SBC: Energy Materials Corporation            Topic: A17A-T002

    Wireless sensors are an extremely effective means of communication on the modern battlefield, however current battery technologies have limited the full realization of these essential tools. A robust, high efficiency, light weight, flexible power source is thus critical for effective deployment of modern technologies. Organic-inorganic hybrid perovskites (OIHPs) are the ideal candidates for use in ...

  5. Stacked 2-D Meta-structures for Shielding High-Power Laser Radiation

    SBC: Utility Development Corporation            Topic: A17A-T003

    The objective will be to investigate novel approaches using multilayered hybrid 2-dimensional nanostructures as passive coatings and evaluate their interactions with high energy lasers. This approach will be applied throughout the entire EM spectra. Simulations will be the main focus and will augment these with preliminary experiments in the visible range. These structured materials will be ...

  6. Countering High Radiance CW Beams with Photonic Nanostructures

    SBC: FIBERTEK, INC.            Topic: A17A-T003

    The proposed effort will investigate several nanophotonic structures to engineer the phase and amplitude of an incident optical beam to form a protective surface layer. Dielectric metasurfaces are used to engineer the optical properties of a protective layer on a sub-wavelength scale. Evaluations will be performed on the interactions of the metasurfaces with high energy lasers to form a basis ...

  7. Multilayer nanostructured coatings with non-linear optical response for manipulation of high energy coherent beams

    SBC: HAMR Industries LLC            Topic: A17A-T003

    The proposed work will investigate unique multilayer coating design architectures utilizing 2-Dimensional (2D) layered materials with giant two-photon absorption, such as WS2 and WSe2, placed between multilayer Bragg mirrors to produce reflective optical limiters. These optical limiters will transition from transparent to reflective when the incoming intensity exceeds a critical value. This repr ...

  9. Functional Additive Manufacturing for Printable & Networkable Sensors to Detect Energetics and Other Threat Materials

    SBC: DeLUX Engineering, LLC            Topic: A17A-T004

    Chemiresistors are an important class of electronic sensors that detect the presence of analytes/chemicals via a change in the resistance of a sensor element. A typical interdigitated electrode array is deposited onto an insulating substrate with metallic electrodes that have feature sizes in the 5-500 m range. The metal electrodes are typically sputter coated onto the substrate, using lithogra ...
