  1. Advanced back-illuminated CMOS image sensors for adaptive optics applications

    SBC: SCIMEASURE ANALYTICAL SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF171022

    An existing 128x128 pixel CMOS image sensor design will be revised and fabricated in a thicker format more suitable for backthinning with the goal of increasing the quantum efficiency from 59% to > 80% at 589 nm. Increasing the epitaxial layer material from 5.2 microns to 14.2 microns is estimated to increase the absorption of 589 nm photons by 48%. A batch of 20 devices will be fully backthinned ...

  5. Instant k-Space Tomography for Spatial-Spectral Monitoring

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT013

    The Army is frequently forced to operate in hostile climates. Heavy fog, rain, snow, and dust storms can inhibit the performance of tracking technologies such as mid-wave infrared cameras. In such conditions, Army early warning systems are blinded and put personnel and assets at risk.There is a specific need for a degraded visual environment (DVE) penetrative target tracking solution.Radio frequen ...

  9. Electrochemical Modeling of Anodic Metal-Rich Primers

    SBC: Corrdesa            Topic: N162129

    NAVAIR has developed a new type of primer based on metallic pigments designed to drive the potential of the underlying alloy below the pitting potential, eliminating pitting and stress corrosion cracking. Although aluminum alloy-pigment primers have been developed and tested, their further development and optimization is inhibited by the lack of any way to design them efficiently or predict their ...
