  1. Parallel Two-Electron Reduced Density Matrix Based Electronic Structure Software for Highly Correlated Molecules and Materials

    SBC: RDMChem LLC            Topic: A14AT013

    Two-electron reduced-density-matrix (2-RDM) methods represent all of the electrons in any molecule or material with only two electrons by replacing the wave function by the 2-RDM as the basic variable for quantum many-electron theory. The 2-RDM methods, developed by David Mazziotti at The University of Chicago with support from the Army Research Office, have polynomial scaling with system size, al ...

  2. Improved III-V Antimonide-Based Superlattice Materials From Growth and Defect Modeling

    SBC: SIVANANTHAN LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: A15041

    Absorber layers based on strained layer superlattice (SLS) composed of III-V compound semiconductors (e.g. GaSb and InAs/Sb) are a promising sensor technology for infrared imaging; however, dark currents and short carrier lifetimes in SLS are still significant problems. It is presently suspected that the short carrier lifetimes and some dark current arise due to a native point defect, possibly the ...

  3. HgCdTe Material Improvements for High Operating Temperatures

    SBC: EPIR, INC.            Topic: A15024

    High performance HgCdTe infrared detector arrays operating at 77 K can be tailored for response across the infrared spectrum (1 to 14 micron and beyond), and are utilized in a variety of military and civilian systems for infrared imaging. Reducing cooling requirements allows integration in lighter and more compact systems. Good performance at higher operating temperatures can be provided by a syst ...

  4. Objective Measurement Tool for Detection and Monitoring of Noise-Induced Hearing Loss

    SBC: Mimosa Acoustics Inc.            Topic: DHP15015

    We propose to take our hearing-test device, which was designed to support research in advancing hearing-conservation programs, and ruggedize it for use in theater. Five key challenges that make the commercial-off-the-shelf OAE systems unsuitable for HCPs, will be overcome. We will: 1) implement next-generation otoacoustic emission tests to enable OAE measurements in noise-damaged ears, 2) add smar ...

  6. Nano-Inspired Broadband Photovoltaics Sheets

    SBC: Microlink Devices, Inc.            Topic: A13020

    The objective for Phase II is to transition the nanopatterning results obtained in Phase I to epitaxial lift-off (ELO)-based GaAs cells. By developing nanopatterning on ELO solar cells and antireflection coatings and by laminating the cells using nanopatterned PET/Teflon films, we can develop highly flexible and lightweight solar cells that are less sensitive to the angle of incidence of incoming ...

  7. Versatile Micro/Nano-mechanical Load Frame For In Situ Studies

    SBC: Psylotech LLC            Topic: A09055

    Small scale mechanical testing is often a bottleneck in micro and nanocomposite materials development. The proposed Psylotech system is a miniature universal test system that accommodates rigid materials and soft materials, such as biological tissues and rubber in the form of uniaxially loaded samples. The Psylotech nano/micro/milli Test System (nTS) is the evolution and integration of systems dev ...

  8. Novel Methods to Monitor Health Status and Clinical Laboratory Data: Portable Acquisition, Assessment, and Reporting

    SBC: Mimosa Acoustics Inc.            Topic: OSD09H26

    Mimosa Acoustics will develop a portable binaural audiological device, based on our successful HearID system. HearID is a clinical system for otoacoustic emission and middle-ear power analysis testing; it is FDA and CE-marked. The new system will have the ability to conduct a variety of audiological tests especially for use in hearing-conservation programs, including: flexible otoacoustic emission ...

  9. Fatigue Resistant Martensitic Steel for Rotorcraft Drive Train Components

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: A10035

    In Phase I of this SBIR program, QuesTek successfully demonstrated a novel thermomechanical processing technique to enhance the bending fatigue resistance of Ferrium C64 steel. A systems-engineering approach was followed to identify key microstructure attributes (e.g., nonmetallic inclusions) that control the mean and minimum fatigue resistance of the aforementioned steel. Through carefully devise ...

  10. High Speed Room Temperature Single Photon Counters

    SBC: NUCRYPT LLC            Topic: A11aT008

    Detecting light at the single photon level is a fundamental measurement function that is useful in a wide variety of applications, including such diverse fields as biological spectroscopy, laser ranging, and quantum communications. Avalanche photodiode (APD) based single photon detectors (SPDs) are very convenient in that they are small solid state devices that don"t require cryogenic cooling. Si- ...
