  1. Atomic Layer Deposition of Highly Conductive Metals

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: A17AT001

    Novel photonic structures, such as periodic metal-dielectric photonic bandgap structures (MDPBG) have the potential to revolutionize the field of optical windows. The large mismatch in the permittivities of the metal and dielectric creates resonant tunneling, which allows for high transmission in regions where metals are typically opaque. This property makes MDPBGs very attractive for screening or ...

  2. Heterogeneously Integrated Active Laser Sensing Platform on Si

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A17AT005

    We propose to develop highly-sensitive low size, weight, and power (SWaP) chip-scale mid-infrared integrated-optic sensors for trace gas measurements, We will combine Tunable Diode Laser Spectroscopy (TDLAS) detection techniques with narrow-linewidth fast-tuning Distributed Feedback (DFB) Quantum Cascade and Interband Cascade Lasers (QCLs and ICLs) to create a platform for a family of sensors, ea ...

  3. Self-Sensing & Self-Healing Composites via Embedded Mechanophores

    SBC: Metis Design Corporation            Topic: A17AT009

    Composites are being adopted increasingly in aerospace structures due to their superior specific stiffness and strength, their resistance to fatigue and ability to greatly reduce part count. They present additional challenges for design however, due to their heterogeneity and anisotropy, and for inspection since damage often occurs beneath their surface. Currently successful laboratory non-destru ...

  4. Shelf-stable synthetic cannabinoid biosensor

    SBC: Nano Terra, Inc.            Topic: A17AT014

    Nano Terra will collaborate with the Center for Drug Discovery (CDD) at Northeastern University, to develop a sensor capable of detecting synthetic cannabinoids independently of their specific molecular structure. The sensor will be portable, label-free and most-importantly shelf stable. Our proposed sensor will employ a structurally stabilized mutant CB1 receptor as the recognition element in fl ...

  5. Biological Agent Detection Network

    SBC: MixZon, Inc.            Topic: A17AT020

    Physical Sciences Inc. in cooperation with University of Notre Dame proposes to develop a method for the persistent surveillance and detection of aerosolized biological warfare agents using a distributed point bioaerosol detector network, local meteorological sensors, existing infrared surveillance cameras, and crowdsourced georeferenced network traffic and phrase monitoring. The proposed technolo ...

  6. Real Time Inline Bacteria Detection for Military Mobile Water Treatment System

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A17AT023

    Physical Sciences Inc., in cooperation with Boston University, proposes to develop an Interferometric Reflectance Imaging Sensor (IRIS) to detect waterborne pathogens including E. coli for use with military mobile water treatment systems. The imaging platform will employ an algorithm to discriminate E. coli based on size/shape analysis concurrent with capture probes with application to multiplexe ...

  7. Additive Manufactured Smart Structures with Discrete Embedded Sensors

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: A17AT024

    The purpose of this proposal is to additively manufacture (AM) smart structures with embedded electronics such as sensors, accelerometers, antennas, etc. The goal of these smart structures will be to enhance the effectiveness and survivability of the Armys ground systems. The use of additive manufacturing smart structures provides flexibility in the materials used and the functionality of the elec ...

  8. High Power Direct Diode Laser

    SBC: Forward Photonics LLC            Topic: A16080

    We propose to build the highest brightness direct diode laser ever constructed, a nearly diffraction limited laser subsystem at a power level of > 50 kW CW using wavelength beam combining (WBC). WBC is a technique which allows for the combination of many distinct diode elements in which the common output beam has nearly the same beam characteristics as that of a single element. Since wavelength be ...

  9. LOW COST PROCESS FOR FABRICATING AERODYNAMIC CERAMIC/GLASS COMPOSITE IR DOMES

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: A16091

    Missile seekers for precision guided munitions are key elements of modern defense systems. Seekers using laser guidance or imaging require IR- transparent protective domes. Depending on the application, these domes may plastic, glass, ceramic, polycrystal, or single crystal. Plastic and glass are relatively inexpensive and easily formed into non-spherical shapes. They are, however relatively soft ...

  10. All-fiber Ultrafast Quantum Optical Switches

    SBC: Q-PEAK INCORPORATED            Topic: A16095

    Q-Peak will design and develop a novel ultrafast, extremely low loss, all-fiber switching architecture that promises near Raman-free operation. By utilizing a novel interferometric all-fiber switch with nonlinear enhancement, it is possible to provide both ultrafast switching speeds and reduce laser power requirements.
