  1. Bulk, Exchange-Coupled Nitride Magnets

    SBC: ADVANCED MATERIALS CORP.            Topic: A06T003

    The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of producing exchange-coupled magnets with a mixture of Sm2Fe17Nx and alpha double prime-iron nitride powders as starting materials. Advanced Materials Corporation (AMC), together with Georgia Institute of Technology propose to produce these powders with the use of a fluidized bed reactor and consolidate mixtures of these powders uti ...

  2. Light Filament Sensor

    SBC: Applied Energetics, Inc.            Topic: A06T017

    Optical filaments, formed by high intensity ultra-short laser pulses, provide high-intensity coherent white light in the atmosphere at great distances from the laser source. This high-intensity interrogation of the atmosphere yields backward directed emissions for detection from a sensor co-located with the laser system. This has clear advantages for remote sensing in hostile environments, or en ...

  3. TSR-SHIELD: Time & Spatially Resolved Standoff Hyperspectral Imaging Explosives LIDAR Detector

    SBC: ChemImage Sensor Systems            Topic: A06T006

    Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) is being successfully transitioned to field applications in both close-contact (proximity) and standoff detection modes. LIBS is attractive since it can be used to detect a wide range of chemical, biological and explosive (CBE) hazardous materials. While LIBS is well suited to evaluation of complex hazards, including improvised explosive devices (IEDs) ...

  5. Energy Scavenging Ankle Component for Self-Charging Batteries on Prosthetic Limbs

    SBC: KCF TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A06T031

    KCF Technologies will develop an energy scavenging device as a component in the ankle of a lower extremity prosthetic limb. The component will be designed and demonstrated on a C-Leg, in collaboration with Otto Bock USA. The component will capture and store energy during normal activities such as walking and running. The captured energy will automatically recharge the batteries of the C-Leg. T ...

  7. Intracranial Hematoma/ Burr Hole and Trauma Flap Simulator

    SBC: VEREFI TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: OSD05T004

    Traumatic brain injury has dramatically increased in military and civilian settings owing to widespread bombings and improvised explosive devices. In many battlefield settings, the availability of neurosurgeons is limited. However, rapid treatment of intracranial hematomas can save lives and limit permanent neurologic sequelae. Training non-neurosurgeons to perform emergency burr holes and limi ...

  8. Powerful Source of Collimated Coherent Infrared Radiation with Pulse Duration Fewer than Ten Cycles

    SBC: NP Photonics, Inc.            Topic: A14AT006

    Few-cycle mid-infrared lasers are highly demanded for a variety of practical applications. NP Photonics and University of Arizona propose to develop a wavelength tunable and power-scalable optical parametric laser system at 8-12 micron capable of producing collimated few-cycle pulses with pulse energy>100 microJoule. In this phase I program, we will design the whole laser system and do a feasibil ...

  9. Technology to Regulate Circadian Rhythm for Health and Performance

    SBC: BRAIN STATE TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: A14AT009

    We propose a wearable, dual-use neurotechnology device. The Personal Brainwave Headband, driven by tablet or smartphone, is designed for noninvasive closed-loop acoustic stimulation, to permit improved circadian regulation. It will measure brain electrical activity from scalp overlying four key sectors of cortex, perform high-resolution spectral analysis of the signals, and use software algorith ...

  10. Solar Blind MgZnO Photodetectors

    SBC: AGNITRON TECHNOLOGY, INC            Topic: A13AT006

    This project address the fabrication of solar blind detectors from the MgZnO material system. Both MBE and MOCVD material growth techniques will be used for deposition of the required material layers. Simulation software we be used to aid in the design of the photodetector structure. Devices will be fabricated from the grown structures and their electrical and optical characteristics determined.
