  3. Handheld IR Raman Spectroscopy for Rapid Chemical Identification

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: CBD08102

    In Phase I, Aerius Photonics demonstrated Raman spectroscopy at 785 nm, 980 nm, and 1064 nm, with only 1064 nm-based excitation showing a reduction in fluorescence. In addition, Aerius Photonics and partner Ahura Scientific, demonstrated a breadboard version of an InGaAs-based Raman spectrometer to assess any engineering challenges. By the end of a Phase III, Aerius proposes to develop a handheld ...

  4. Low Cost LWIR Interferometric HSI System

    SBC: SPECTRUM PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: CBD09108

    Due to the potential detection benefits offered by hyperspectral imaging spectroscopy, this is an area of great interest in terms of early detection of plume threats. The major constraint is in costs of components. Under this SBIR, our team will investigate innovative advances in the integration of uncooled microbolometer technologies to determine the potential for reducing detector cost and com ...

  5. Durable Anti-fog Coatings for Contoured Plastic Substrates Using Nanoparticles with Tunable Size and Surface Chemistry

    SBC: Innosense Llc            Topic: CBD09101

    Currently fielded respiratory protective systems in the Joint Services General Purpose Mask (JSGPM) program degrade in visual performance capability in extreme hot and cold environments. Optical and mechanical properties of existing anti-fog coatings also diminish when subjected to cleaning/sanitization operations. To address these needs, InnoSense LLC (ISL), in Phase I, has combined nanomaterials ...

  9. Thermal Infrared Surface Contamination Sensor

    SBC: Spectral Imaging Laboratory            Topic: N/A

    A thermal infrared imaging spectrometer is proposed for the remote detection and identification of surface contaminants. The instrument will use a high power, pulsing CO2 laser to vaporize the liquids while it scans the target scene generating 3Dspectral-images. The instrument will be pre-programmed with a library of contamination filters that can automatically identify contaminants that could b ...
