  1. Adaptive Laser Beam Control Using Return Photon Statistics

    SBC: Nukove Scientific Consulting, Llc            Topic: N/A

    Strategic laser systems for uses including high bandwidth communication, non-imaging target identification, imaging, and the deposition of high laser energy on a target, are subject to the dispersive and refractive effects of a turbulent atmosphere. Theatmosphere manifests itself with effects on the beam size and shape at the target, thus adaptive modification of the far-field pattern to optimize ...

  2. Advanced Hearing Protection

    SBC: DOMINCA LLC            Topic: N/A

    Some ground crews for aircrafts are exposed to ambient noise levels up to 150 dB SPL: at these levels, conduction of sound through tissues is significant and may be responsible for hearing loss. Protecting the ear canal with earplugs and earmuffs cannotprevent damage caused by tissue-conducted sound. Our research partners at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, experts in bioacoustics and ...

  3. Crested Tunnel Barriers for Fast, High Density, Nonvolatile Memory Devices

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Crested multi-layer tunnel barriers have been proposed, which offer a revolutionary solution to overcome density to speed trade-offs characteristic of present data storage technologies. Practical implementation of the proposed technology will involve useof thin film materials which are readily manufacturable and CMOS-compatible. A critical need exists for experimental verification of the theoret ...

  5. Diode Laser-Based Flight Test Instrumentation for Scramjets

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF04T012

    This Phase II STTR project will continue the research and development of a simultaneous multi-species sensor system for scramjets flight test instrumentation. The sensor system is based on modulation-frequency multiplexing to combine several laser wavelengths and using a single two-color photodiode detector to collect the laser signals along the same optical path. High-sensitivity detection of c ...

  6. Hadamard Transform Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This STTR program will develop a two-dimensional Hadamard transform method for combining time-of-flight mass spectrometry (TOFMS) and ion mobility separation (IMS) analysis of trace species. Target applications include chemical and biological agentdetection as well as protein sequencing and identification. The work builds on previous research by the Clemmer group that shows the usefulness of IMS w ...
