  1. 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, ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Mobile In-Situ Imaging of Photovoltaic Modules

    SBC: TAU SCIENCE CORPORATION            Topic: 13c

    Solar module warranties are typically 25 years or longer, a striking reliability requirement that allows only a slow performance degradation with time. There are very few products built today that are required to exhibit this type of longevity. In the past decade, to improve the quality of their products, high-performance cell manufacturers developed and implemented various inline process control ...

  4. InGaAs Focal-plane Arrays for Coherent Ladar

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF171129

    Voxtel proposes to develop, characterize, and demonstrate a coherent-ladar optimized readout integrated circuit (ROIC) consisting of 40-micron pixel elements, including circuits designed for snapshot-integration operation as short as 250 ns, formatted in a 32 x 32 array capable of readout speeds of 1 M frames per second. In Phase I, the coherent ladar ROIC architecture was developed and specificat ...

  5. Adversarial Detection, Inference & Defensive Response (ADIDRUS)

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: OSD11IA2

    Insider threat poses one of the most problematic cyber challenges facing the warfighter today. This threat to Air Force assets is particularly insidiousas trusted individuals have easy access to sensitive and classified information. Galois, Inc. has developed a multi-layered attack inference engine called ADIDRUS, originally designed to help UAVs fight through cyber attacks. ADIDRUS continuously m ...

  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 ...

    SBIR Phase I 2018 Environmental Protection Agency
  8. Production of Environmentally-Acceptable BioLubricants for Hydropower Applications

    SBC: RiKarbon, Inc.            Topic: 15a

    RiKarbon, Inc. will commercialize an enabling technology for the production of Environmentally-Acceptable Lubricants (EALs) from plant matters and natural oils. The produced Bio-Lubricants (BioLubes) with branched architecture, improved properties and durability, and tunable specifications will have a wide range of high-performance applications, e.g., hydropower production, lubrication of engines ...

  9. Dynamic Free-Space Optical Femtocells for High Speed Undersea Platform Communication

    SBC: E-Lambda LCC            Topic: N181070

    Recent advances in free space optical (FSO) technologies promise a new way to provide energy efficient, high speed, and secure wireless communications. Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers (VCSELs) are now sufficiently mature that it is possible to transmit data at high bit rates reliably using simple energy efficient modulation schemes. Also, FSO and RF devices can operate in the same location ...

  10. Integrated Membrane Reactor for Enhancing Thermal & Chemical Reactors

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 06c

    With development of shale gas fracking, large amounts of methane and ethane have now become available at low cost. With this low cost ethane it is desirable to convert low cost ethane to high value ethylene. Oxidative dehydration (ODH) for low cost conversion of ethane to ethylene is a potentially attractive route. ODH is an exothermic process for converting ethane to ethylene. By contrast process ...
