  1. Hyperspectral Image Projector Based on Liquid Crystal on Silicon Displays

    SBC: BOULDER NONLINEAR SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 825

    This proposal outlines the development of a precision instrument for calibrating satellite based imaging sensors – the Hyperspectral Image Projector. The HIP instrument is capable of producing realistic, standards-based satellite imagery simultaneously projecting spectral spatial scenes. This proposed effort will concentrate on the spectral engine of the HIP, with the goal of producing a long-wa ...

  2. High Efficiency, Large-Area, 1550 nm InGaAs Photodiodes

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A back-illuminated planar InGaAs photodiode tested to have 95% quantum effiiency (QE) at 1550 nm, area greater than 1 mm2, low capacitance (125 MHz) will be improved. Although the existing Phase I device exhibited bulk material dark current generation better than commercially available devices, the sidewall-generated dark current was found to dominate the noise equiva ...

  3. Visible Hyperspectral Image Projector Based on Spatial Light Modulators

    SBC: BOULDER NONLINEAR SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    There are many applications for hyperspectral image detectors, but for the detectors to be widely accepted standardized calibration protocols must be developed. This research aims to bridge this gap through the development of a commercially available hyperspectral image projector (HIP) system. The proposed effort is to build a prototype visible HIP system to generate calibrated, realistic imagery ...

  4. Kilopixel Array Cryostat (KPAC) System for Mulit-kilogram Transition Edge Sensor (TES) Arrays

    SBC: High Precision Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Transition Edge Sensor (TES) detector development at NIST has reached a level where arrays containing several thousand pixels (kilopixels) are practical and , indeed, necessary for fielding systems required for many industrial, research, and homeland security applications. Current easily deployable cryostat technology required to reach the ultra-cold operating temperatures of TES arrays (50 to 100 ...

  5. Development of Broadband VIPAs in Mid-to Long Infrared

    SBC: Precision Photonics Corporation            Topic: N/A

    VIPA etalons are simple compact devices that offer many times more dispersion than gratings and are finding increasing application where higher spectral resolution is needed. Current VIPA designs do not work in the spectroscopically important mid- and long-infrared wavelengths, and do not have large operating bandwidths compatible with femtosecond combs. Incorporating resolution improvements from ...

  6. A Web-based Climate Change Drought Decision Support System (C2D2S2)

    SBC: Riverside Technologies Inc.            Topic: 823

    In Phase I, we identified the need for a readily accessible web-based framework that integrates a credible hydrologic model with climate change and forecast products for hydrological impact studies and water supply projections. The focus in developing the Phase I Climate Change Drought Decision Support System (C2D2S2) prototype was to develop an infrastructure that addresses the critical decision ...

  7. High Pressure Specimen Chamber

    SBC: TECHSHOT, INC.            Topic: 814

    Even today as a highly technical and advanced world civilization, the physiology of deep sea fish and invertebrates continues to remain mysterious and poorly known. Past specimen containers fail to either have the size or volume needed or lack the robustness for high pressure containment of in many cases, lack the repeatability necessary to ensure a reasonable lifetime of continuous use. The Tec ...

  8. Efficient Low-Dark-Count Detector for Photon Counting

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Voxtel has demonstrated efficient high-speed photon counting with thresholded linear-mode avalanche photodiode (APD) receivers using multi-gain-stage InGaAs/InAIAs APDs. In contrast to Geiger APDs, thresholded photon-counting linear APD receivers are thought not to suffer afterpulsing, and can support maximum count rates (MCR) up to 2 or 3 orders of magnitude faster than Geiger APDs. However, the ...
