  1. A Manufacturable Packaging Technology for Monolithic WDM La

    SBC: Photonic Packaging            Topic: N/A

    PPT, in collaboration with the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, proposes to develop a manufacturable packaging technology for monolithic Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) laser arrays for all-optical fiber communications. The packaging technology will include coupling from a monolithic laser array to individual fibers and a microwave feed for each of the individual elements, all in a hermetically s ...

  2. A New Family of Optical Materials for High Power Optical Frequency Conversion

    SBC: ReyTech Corporation            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I Small Business Innovation Research project aims to develop a novel and highly versatile family of NLO crystals that may overcome the limitations of conventional technology. These materials are multifunctional and exhibit a number of unique properties that include, high nonlinearities, high damage thresholds, wide transparency range, are non-hygroscopic, and melt congruently. The uni ...

  4. Alternative Heating Technology for Thermoplastic Composites and Adhesive Bond Processing


    Production Products will develop microwave/RF heating or other directed energy heating techniques for the processing of thermoplastic composites and adhesive bonds with the support of our subcontractor Southern Research Institute and our aerospace mentor McDonnell Douglas Aerospace. Use of directed energy to heat only the polymer in the composite or the bond line eliminates the need for exp ...

  5. Aluminum-Nitride Infrared Window Materials for High Heat Load Applications

    SBC: AP Materials            Topic: N/A

    Feasibility of fabricating IR window materials from aluminum nitride (AlN) will be demonstrated. Aluminum nitride windows are sought as replacements for sapphire windows on high speed seeker missiles because of their higher thermal shock resistance. Our approach is to consolidate high-purity ultrafine powders of AlN to obtain a nanocrystalline window. Small grain size is expected to minimi ...

  6. An Ultrahigh Speed Demultiplexer for Optical Communication Systems

    SBC: Elsicon, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Elsicon Incorporated proposes to develop an optical demultiplexer appropriate for use in high bandwidth fiber-optic communication systems. The demultiplexer will be capable of reducing an optical input bit stream with an aggregate bit rate of greater than 100 Gbits/sec down to a 1 Gbit/sec baseband rate. Therefore, by distributing the full serial data stream among an array of these devices, ultrah ...

  7. Angularly Multiplexed Spectral Imager

    SBC: FLIR SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Techical advances in two dimensional staring focal plan arrays (FPSs) have stimulated research to utilize FPSs in spectrometer instrumentation with the goal of increased spectral, spatial and temporal resolution. Conventional staring FPA spectrometers create a three dimensional image (two spatial and one spectral) by either using a sequence of narrow band spectral filters to slice the ...

  8. Bottom Anti-Reflective Coatings (BARCs) for 193 nm Lithography

    SBC: Brewer Science Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    A long-standing trend in the integrated circuit industry is to reduce pattern geometries on semiconductor substrates. To continue this trend, the next exposure wavelength after on-going deep-ultraviolet (248 nm) will be 193 nm. This SBIR Phase I program will identify and develop thermosetting bottom anti-reflective coatings (BARCs) meeting requirements for use with 193 nm unilayer resists. A serie ...

  9. Chemical Chara and Monitoring System (PMCMS)

    SBC: Deposition Research Lab            Topic: N/A

    This proposal describes Phase I of a research and development program to develop and commercialize a compact, affordable Particulate Matter on-line, Real-time, Physical and Chemical Characterization and Monitoring System (PMCMS), that will quickly and accurately analyze the chemical constituents and size distribution of particulate emissions from Air Force Operations. The PMCMS will provide size ...

  10. Co-Injection Resin Transfer Molding (CIRTM)

    SBC: ANHOLT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Shipboard structures employing composites typically use glass/vinyl ester (VE) manufactured with vacuum assisted RTM. This composite system offers reduced weight, no corrosion and improved signature performance but lacks the fire performance characteristics required for shipboard use. Phenolic resins (PH) provide outstanding fire performance but are difficult to process and offer lower structur ...
