  2. Wafer-Level Electronic-Photonic Co-Packaging

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF16AT01

    In phase II work, we will collaborate with Prof. Stefan Preble in RIT and continue to develop large scale hybrid integration and packaging techniques for key active photonic components such as lithium niobate on insulator (LNOI) modulators and modified uni-traveling (MUTC) photodiodes. We will demonstrate a low V, broadband, small footprint LNOI modulator with hybrid Si/LN or SiN/LN waveguide usin ...

  3. Open Call for Science and Technology Created by Early-Stage (e.g. University) Teams

    SBC: 4TH PHASE WATER TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF19BT001

    Durable and robust large-area ultrathin CNT sheets can be produced from pristine CNT sheets following proprietary CNT purification and densification processes. The resulting CNT sheets are free-standing, flexible, durable, robust, ultrathin (< 5 m) and lightweight (~6 g per m2). They withstand corrosion and heat and are superior at shielding EMI (effectiveness >= 55 dB in the X band).

  5. Tools for Cross-Platform Software Development and Performance Projection

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF161088

    Developers of modern software, particularly those targeting mobile or embedded platforms, are presented with a wide variety of hardware choices. Solutions can be built on microprocessors (e.g. x86, ARM, or Power architecture), GPUs (e.g. NVIDIAs Tegra), DSPs, FPGAs, or some combination of these technologies. Not only does this place a significant burden on programmers in understanding the intricac ...

  6. Compact Radio Frequency-to-Optical Transmitter for Airborne Military Environments

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N191006

    In this SBIR effort we will develop an ultra-compact, high-speed, low RIN and high-power transmitter for high-performance RF photonic link applications based on our cutting-edge lithium niobate on insulator (LNOI) modulator. In phase I, we will design, fabricate and characterize a low Vp, push-and-pull LNOI modulator. We will study the optical couplings at the laser/modulator/fiber interfaces to a ...

  7. Open Call for Science and Technology Created by Early-Stage (e.g. University) Teams

    SBC: Lyapunov Technologies LLC            Topic: AF19BT001

    Managing multi-level risks ranging from the fiscal/personnel resources to fluctuating material/production costs have always been challenges due to the integrated nature of Air Force (AF) with governmental and industrial partners.Establishing a quantitative framework that provides basis for making informed decisions on these pressing issues can greatly impact how Air Force strategically allocate va ...

  8. Open Call for Science and Technology Created by Early-Stage (e.g. University) Teams

    SBC: ECSQUARED INC.            Topic: AF19BT001

    Petal is a novel bio-solar proposal to generate power using plant photosynthetic proteins combined to nanotubes bonded to a conductive substrate.The use of this architecture should allow for high efficiencies in the capture and harvest of photons and the generation of solar power in a very flexible format.This format will allow for scaling from micro to industrial scales.

  9. Packaging High Power Photodetectors for 100 MHz to 100 GHz RF Photonic Applications

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF131142

    ABSTRACT:In this phase II effort we will commercialize the high speed, high power, modified uni-traveling carrier (MUTC) photodiodes (PDs). To this end, we will develop reliable packaging solutions for discrete PDs, PD arrays, balanced PDs and waveguide based PDs. We will also transition the chip fabrication process for continuous, high volume supply of quality MUTC PD chips. In the first six mont ...

  10. Efficient Arrays for Generating Light Emission (EAGLE)

    SBC: Chip Design Systems            Topic: AF16AT22

    With today's IRLED devices, >99.4% of input electrical power is converted into parasitic/waste heat. Moreover, as the local temperatures of the pixels increase due to the generated heat, IRLED optical efficiency is further reduced. Overall this severely limits the number and intensity of array pixels that can be simultaneously operated at high apparent temperatures. In Phase 2, we focus on develop ...
