  1. High Speed Polarization Modulation of Microcavity Lasers for Laser Radar (LADAR) Applications

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: ST092003

    A need exists for polarization interrogating and discriminating Ladar systems to detect and discriminate defilade targets. In the proposed effort, Aerius, and our partner at the University of Illinois, will apply photonic crystal technology to extend Aerius’ high power, high wall plug efficiency, Vertical-Cavity Surface-Emitting Laser (VCSEL) results to develop a stable polarization switched VC ...

  2. Polarization switching VCSEL (P-VCSEL)

    SBC: ZIVA CORPORATION            Topic: ST092003

    Ziva Corporation in collaboration with UCSB will assess the feasibility of developing a directly modulated polarization switching laser based on the Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (VCSEL) geometry with a 3dB frequency of at least 10 GHz. This will be a major breakthrough in the ability to cost effectively fabricate directly modulated lasers (even in 2-D arrays) with polarization diversity ...

  3. Memory Optimization through Vagally Enhanced Signaling (MOVES)

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: ST092001

    There are many situations in DOD missions when soldiers could operate much more effectively if they could successfully recall previously presented information that is vital for mission execution. However, the quantity of information supplied to today’s Warfighter is constantly increasing. This is due to greater reliance on network-centric operations and the expanding range of missions Warfighter ...

  4. New Thruster for Proliferated Satellites Has More Force and Longer Life

    SBC: The Granville Group Inc.            Topic: ST092005

    Granville has designed a new satellite/spacecraft propulsion engine, GREP, delivering over 100.mN/1.0 kW of force from strong electromagnetic energy… more force magnitude and efficiency than existing propellant limited ion thrusters. And, because it uses renewable power from on-board solar/electric panels, GREP offers extended propulsion maneuver life, up to 15 years or more, substantially lon ...

  5. Long Coherence Length 193 nm Laser for High-Resolution Nano-Fabrication

    SBC: LUMERAS LLC            Topic: ST071006

    Immersion lithography using available 193 nm optics and laser sources provides an attractive near-term path to reducing the printable feature sizes of integrated circuits by using a high-index fluid to reduce the wavelength at the wafer, rather than using light with higher photon energy and shorter vacuum wavelength. An interferometric immersion lithography (IIL) tool has demonstrated rapid fabric ...

  7. Improved electrodes for low-loss radio frequency devices

    SBC: AGILE RF, INC.            Topic: A09AT015

    Understanding and minimizing RF loss in tunable components is key to the successful integration of this technology in high performance wireless devices. Filter applications, in particular, fundamentally require extremely low loss to operate efficiently. Agile’s high-frequency tunable filter development efforts using BST have found that loss due to surface or series resistance (Rs) is a significa ...

  8. Low Loss Optic Fiber Sparse Tapped Delay Module

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: ST051006

    Leveraging Agiltron's recent breakthrough in low loss/low cost solid-sate fiberoptic digital delay lines and variable splitter, we propose to develop a new type of affordable reconfigurable sparse delay line module. The proposed approach overcomes the deficiencies in limited delay time and excessive loss associated with electronic sparse delay line modules and provides sufficiently long delays an ...

  9. Wide Field of View Electronically Stearable Imaging Sensors

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: ST051004

    This proposal provides a breakthrough solution to flexibly direct the field of view of an imaging system over a wide acceptance angle, having significant advantages over other candidate technologies. The innovation is based on an unconventional beam steering technology covering a wide angle ranging over at high speed with low power consumption and in a compact and lightweight construction. The ...
