  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 ...

  2. TerrAdapt: A system for autonomous terrain classification and terrain-adaptive driving

    SBC: Quantum Signal LLC            Topic: A11aT033

    The Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Quantum Signal LLC propose to research and develop the TerrAdapt system for terrain classification and vehicle driving control. This work will result in fundamental research advances, but will be practical enough for application on today"s COTS vehicle platforms. The system will maximize vehicle mobility due to the following key features: 1) TerrAdap ...

  3. MOCVD of High Performance Complex Oxide Films for Switchable Film Bulk Acoustic Resonators

    SBC: STRUCTURED MATERIALS INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: A11aT016

    In this STTR program, Structured Materials Industries, Inc. (SMI) and partners will develop high efficiency, switchable RF filters. The technical approach is based on thin films of paraelectric BaxSr1-xTiO3 and SrTiO3, which can show piezoelectric behavior under an applied DC bias. When integrated into resonator structures, these materials can act as both an RF filter and an RF switch. Combinin ...

  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. DYNAMICALLY PROGRAMMABLE AND ADAPTIVE MULTI-BAND COMPRESSIVE IMAGING SYSTEM

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: A11aT007

    Bridger Photonics and the University of Arizona will develop a passive multi-band compressive sensor for imaging and object recognition applications. The Army has identified a need for multi-band imagery for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions among others. Multi-band systems offer enhanced discrimination capability and the ability to perform in adverse conditions (at night, smo ...

  6. Periodically Poled Materials for UV Generation

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: A09AT008

    Army quantum information researchers have an immediate need for improved stable, narrowband violet and UV laser sources with 10100 mW output and 10 MHz10 GHz tuning. These sources are required for numerous ion and atom qubits functions including photoionization, Doppler cooling, state initialization, and detection. The cost and complexity of currently available UV lasers hampers current efforts ...
