  5. Novel Non-mechanical Liquid Crystal based Foveated Imaging System

    SBC: BOULDER NONLINEAR SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: SB093008

    A novel foveated imaging technology is proposed, suitable for integration into an urban surveillance system. The proposed technology has no moving parts has low power requirements and requires a single imaging camera. The technology exploits the beam steering capabilities of liquid crystal polarization gratings (LCPGs) which diffract light only into the m=±1 orders according to the handedness of ...

  6. Nanotechnology-Enhanced Sensor for Toxic Industrial Chemicals

    SBC: Streamline Automation, LLC            Topic: SB072001

    Chlorine gas was first used as a weapon during World War I, and reemerged as a threat in Iraq compounding the dangers from existing improvised explosive devices. One of the significant challenges with preventing attacks that involve toxic industrial chemicals (TICs) like chlorine and ammonia is that they have genuine civilian uses for water treatment, in refrigeration systems, and other applicatio ...

  8. Characterization and Mitigation of Radiation Effects in Nonplanar Nano-technology Microelectronics

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA092001

    Future high-performance integrated circuits in DoD satellite systems will require non-planar nano-technology devices, such as MultiGate Field Effect Transistors (MuGFET) or FinFET, which can decrease pattern area of logic circuits below 50% of the conventional planar technologies. The International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors predicts that such devices will be the cornerstone of sub-32nm ...

  10. Electrokinetic-based Microfluidic Universal Sample-Preparation (EMUS) Platform

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA092002

    Sample preparation has been recognized as the single most important challenge to be faced in the development of detect-to-warn (DTW) systems. Available commercial sample preparation technologies are expensive, slow, and require trained laboratory technicians and sophisticated laboratory equipment for operation. Addressing this need, we propose to design, fabricate, and demonstrate a general purpos ...
