  2. Atomic Layer Deposition of Highly Conductive Metals

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: A17AT001

    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 ...

  3. Biologically-Derived Targeted Antimicrobials for Textile Applications

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: A14AT012

    Antimicrobial treatment of military textile systems is intended to provide enhanced protection to the Warfighter in the field by preventing colonization of harmful bacteria that cause various skin and soft tissue infections (SSTI) such as impetigo, boils, abscesses, cellulitis and life-threatening necrotizing fasciitis. Current treatments can impart antimicrobial functionality to textiles; however ...

  4. 3D Tomographic Scanning Microwave Microscopy with Nanometer Resolution

    SBC: Alcatera Inc.            Topic: A17AT008

    Scanning probe microscopy (SPM) is a technique used to detect near-field interaction when a sample is rater-scanned by a probe. Example include atomic force microscope (AFM) and scanning tunneling microscope (STM). It offers nanometric and atomic image resolution. In this field, an emerging technique, Near-Field Scanning Microwave Microscopy (SMM), utilizes microwave evanescent waves to attain the ...

  6. High Dynamic Range Heterodyne Terahertz Imager

    SBC: LONGWAVE PHOTONICS LLC            Topic: A17AT007

    The Tunable Active HEterodyne Terahertz Imager (TAHETI) system will use Terahertz Quantum-Cascade Lasers (QCL) combined with a Schottky diode detector for ultra-high dynamic range heterodyne imaging. Distributed feedback (DFB) QCLs with milliwatt power levels are engineered to emit at slightly offset frequencies, and are used as local oscillator and illumination for imaging. The QCLs will be down ...
