The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Compact&Ultra-High Resolution Terahertz Spectroscopic/Fingerprint System

    SBC: Ocis Technology LLC            Topic: A10AT013

    In this STTR program we will first develop a high power, very narrow linewidth (CW), tunable, compact, room temperature terahertz (THz) spectroscopic system and then use this to begin development of experimentally obtained THz spectra. The THz source is based on our previous simulation and initial experimental demonstration of a novel nested waveguide structure using difference frequency generatio ...

  2. Deep ultraviolet laser for Raman spectroscopy

    SBC: TIPD, LLC            Topic: A11aT005

    The University of Arizona has demonstrated high-average-power all-solid-state ultraviolet (UV) lasers based on harmonic generation in borate crystals. TIPD is proposing the development of a compact, stable high power UV laser source based on the University"s exsisting CsLiB6O10 laser, developing these sources for a wide variety of applications, both commercial and defense.

  3. Deep ultraviolet laser for Raman spectroscopy

    SBC: NP Photonics, Inc.            Topic: A11aT005

    NP Photonics proposes to develop an ultra-stable, compact, and highly reliable deep ultraviolet (UV) laser source for Raman spectroscopy. For this, we will draw on NP Photonics"long experience with the commercialization of single-frequency fiber lasers and amplifiers. In cooperation with the University of Arizona, we offer two technical approaches to produce the deep UV laser source. (1) High ...

  4. Optical Cryocooling for Space-borne Sensors

    SBC: NP Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT02

    ABSTRACT: We propose to develop a light weight, compact, vibration-less and micro-scale cooler for space-mission conditions based on optical refrigeration using an all-fiber approach. Specifically, we will use a Tm+3-doped fiber laser to pump Tm+3-doped glass fibers, which provide the cooling action on the affixed heat source. The cooling fiber is attached to the heating sample e.g., EO-IR detect ...

  5. Scalable Aero-Load and Aero-Elasticity Solvers for Massively Parallel Heterogeneous Computing Architectures

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF10BT13

    ABSTRACT: We propose to apply modern massively multicore processors to a key problem area of interest to the Air Force: multiphysics computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and computational structural dynamics (CSD) solvers. The capabilities of the CPU to solve these problems have been increasing steadily, but the CPU is still a general-purpose device designed to run diverse applications such as word ...

  6. Securing Applications by Limiting Exposure

    SBC: SoftKrypt, LLC            Topic: AF10BT18

    ABSTRACT: This STTR Phase I project addresses exploit attempts being mounted against applications code and modules with vulnerabilities that need to be protected. The team's strategy is to"blacken"or isolate applications and the inter, and intra communications paths between them and the lnternet using innovative algorithms developed by Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU). W ...

  7. High Power, Room Temperature 2.4- 4 micron Mid-IR Semiconductor Laser Optimization

    SBC: NONLINEAR CONTROL STRATEGIES, INC.            Topic: AF10BT20

    ABSTRACT: The key objective of the proposal is to develop sophisticated, graphical user interface driven software tools built on fully microscopic physics to design, guide and provide feedback on growth, fabrication and evaluation of semiconductor structures that provide optical gain in the critical 2.4-4 micron wavelength window. Existing technologies are severely limited by low gain, high losse ...

  8. Self-Reconfigurable Memristor-Based Computing Architecture: Design, Fabrication, and Characterization

    SBC: Bio Inspired Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF10BT31

    ABSTRACT: The behavior of the Chalcogenide based ion-conducting memristor lends itself for use as an element in a simple neuromorphic computing circuit. The reaction of a circuit to an external stimulus may be the result of its ability to learn from previous similar, yet unrelated exposures to environmental stimulus. A highly specialized variation of the memristor, previously developed by the Ad ...

  9. Modeling of pulse propagation in a four level atomic medium for gyroscopic measurements

    SBC: NP Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N11AT005

    We propose to develop numerical methodologies that can be used as alternatives to standard finite-difference time-domain algorithms, and that will offer substantial reductions in numerical complexity (notably CPU-time requirements) without the need to trade-off flexibility for overall robustness. In the initial phase, we propose a two-pronged approach, in which we evaluate two alternatives: (i) a ...

  10. Modeling to Quantify Improved Durability of Superfinish Gear Processing

    SBC: SENTIENT CORPORATION            Topic: N11AT007

    Under this STTR, Sentient Corporation, along with the Ohio State University GearLab as a research partner, will develop a probabilistic physics-based damage modeling tool for the simulation of superfinished gear components. This model will consider critical surface, material, and load parameters for components manufactured from common gear steels. The model will also analyze superfinished as well ...
