  1. Plasmonic Nanoantennas for Single-Molecule, Surface-Enhanced-Raman-Scattering Based Sensing

    SBC: L. C. PEGASUS CORP.            Topic: A10AT014

    This proposed project is concerned with the design, fabrication, and demonstration of a new class of plasmonic nanostructures for single molecule surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy for biological and chemical sensing applications. A complete design of the plasmonic nanostructures with large local field enhancements (E/E0>100) will be formulated, and the fabrication procedures will be developed fo ...

  3. Ultra compact, efficient, and reliable GaN based deep UV laser for Raman spectroscopy

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A11aT005

    Leveraging Agiltron"s industrial leading developments and production of Raman instruments, external cavity laser and nonlinear optical components, we propose to develop a new class of high performance compact deep ultraviolet (UV) laser for Raman spectroscopy. The approach is closely coupled with recent progress in GaN blue laser and external resonator enhanced second harmonic generation (SHG) to ...

  4. GHz-range photon counting with single-photon avalanche photodiodes

    SBC: Princeton Lightwave, Inc.            Topic: A11aT008

    In the past few years, there have been promising demonstrations of new approaches to short-gate (i.e., sub-nanosecond) operation of single-photon avalanche diodes (SPADs) with gating frequencies as high as 2 GHz. However, these demonstrations have had limitations, including operation at just a single fixed frequency, fairly high residual afterpulsing levels, and the lack of industrialization req ...

  5. Compact, Rugged, and Low-Cost, Wavelength-Versatile Burst Laser

    SBC: Q-PEAK INCORPORATED            Topic: A11aT009

    Q-Peak Inc., in collaboration with The Johns Hopkins University (JHU), proposes to develop an extremely compact, air-cooled, lightweight, multi-wavelength, burst-mode laser based on the combination of a Q-switched, Nd-doped, oscillator-amplifier laser, and efficient, robust nonlinear optical frequency converters.

  6. Story Creation and Inference through Bayesian Extraction (SCRIBE)

    SBC: DECISIVE ANALYTICS CORPORATION            Topic: A11aT010

    Without a deep understanding of causes, context, and meaning of the events they observe, Warfighters are unable to reliably develop or execute effective courses of action. Unfortunately, traditional methods of accessing this information require significant effort searching large volumes of unstructured text from varied open sources. Advanced methods for coping with this problem face several challe ...

  7. Rapid Ethnographic Assessment and Data management Integration Toolkit (READ-IT)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A11aT011

    Obtaining support from the local population is crucial for successful counterinsurgency (COIN) operations. US forces often fail to adequately understand the ethnographic characteristics of foreign populationswarfighters need access to ethnographic methods which help them to rapidly capture and interpret cultural, social, and economic data. A warfighter in high-risk areas needs easy-to-use tools th ...

  8. Electrochemical Generation of Hydrogen from Methanol

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: A11aT012

    The US Army has identified limitations of the DMFC (poor efficiency) and RMFC (complex system, high temperature process) approaches, and is soliciting innovation that will enable high efficiency hydrogen generation from methanol in a simple approach that has minimal thermal signature. It is the objective of this project to address these needs through the development of a novel hybrid electrochemic ...

  9. Bio-Inspired Copolymer Membranes for Direct Methanol Fuel Cells

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: A11aT013

    Implementation of new technologies for soldier survivability often requires lightweight and reliable power sources. Direct-Methanol Fuel Cells (DMFCs) are attractive both in military and consumer electronics applications where their energy density, power output, and lifetime make them ideally suited to address weight and power limitations. DMFCs have been slow to materialize especially due to dras ...

  10. High-capacity and Cost-effective Manufacture of Chloroperoxidase

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: A11aT014

    The low cost chloroperoxidase can be potentially applicable to the inactivation of chemical agents due to its exceptional stability, broad substrate profile, and high catalytic efficiency. However, the high cost of producing large amounts of CPO is a major obstacle precluding the formulation and field deployment of this enzyme for chemical agent decontamination. Infoscitex Corporation (IST) and ...
