  2. Multicore Fiber Optic Package Optical Subassembly for Wideband Digital and Analog Photonic Links

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N182101

    In this SBIR effort we will develop a balanced detection analog photonic link consisting of a DFB laser, a dual-output high-speed, low-Vp mach-zehnder modulator (MZM) and a high-power, high-linearity balanced photodetector (BPD) using a dual-core, single mode, multicore fiber (MCF) that is supplied by our subcontractor, OFS. We will design, fabricate and characterize (phase I) the MZM and the BPD, ...

  3. Photonic Integrated Circuit Reliability

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N182108

    Photonic integration, and specifically silicon photonics, has emerged as one of the leading solutions for maintaining or improving the performance of optical systems while addressing the requirements related to size, weight, and power (SWaP). Photonic integrated circuits (PICs), which integrate multiple photonic elements onto a single chip, are specifically suited to providing the complexity and f ...

  4. Workflow Automation for Simulations of Optical and RF Exposures

    SBC: Stellar Science Ltd. Co.            Topic: AF181001

    Devices that produce high-power radio frequency and optical radiation can be hazardous to operate and can lead to overexposures in humans. Because human experiments are undesirable, analysts use software chains to predict exposures: these range from simulations of the devices to propagation of the electromagnetic waves through the environment and finally to simulations of effects in human tissue. ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. A Novel, Nanostructured, Metal-organic Frameworks-Based Product Loss Prevention Technology in the Oil and Natural Gas Sector

    SBC: Framergy, Inc.            Topic: 17NCER2C

    To reach the end user, oil and gas production at the wellhead must be transmitted through the country and distributed to a wide range of customers. This logistical system requires natural gas gathering lines, processing facilities, product storage tanks and lots of other equipment. What results is air pollution caused by industry losses during these operations and the use of continuous or intermit ...

  8. Laser Polarimeter for Mapping and Assessment of Microtextures in Titanium Alloys

    SBC: ADVANCED OPTICAL TECHNOLOGIES INCORPORATED            Topic: AF171098

    Advanced Optical Technologies, Inc. (AOT) will build a new type of optical crystallographic NDT sensor under a Phase II SBIR contract with the AFRL Materials & Manufacturing Directorate, WPAFB, OH. The new sensor, a laser polarimeter implementing AOT's patented polarization-classification imaging (PCI) techniques, will be the first to allow affordable quantitative grain-orientation imaging over la ...

  9. Thermal Control for Resilient Spacecraft

    SBC: LOADPATH, LLC            Topic: AF103107

    The overall goal of this effort is to support high-power SmallSats by maturing resilient thermal control technologies. Technologies include both Advanced Thermal Model (ATM) software and Resilient Thermal Control (RTC) hardware. The ATM software utilizes a reduced-order modeling (ROM) approach to greatly reduce thermal modeling overhead. New features will be added to the ATM software to enhance it ...
