  1. Multi-color Quantum Cascade Mid-Infrared Sources at 2.5 to 5 ym

    SBC: APPLIED OPTOELECTRONICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop multi-color mid-infrared (IR) sources at 2.5 to 5 um based on InAs/InGaSb type-II quantum cascade (QC) structures. A compact mid-IR dual wavelength source could be extremely useful for the environmental gas and pollutant sensing, such as differential absorption lidar, where the light scattering has to be evaluated and compared at two different wavelengths. Recently, we have d ...

  2. High Temperature Solar Cell Contacts

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: N/A

    Inexpensive solar cell contacts can be made using silicone or epoxy materials with carbon nanostructure additives to improve electrical conductivity at high temperature. This overcomes the problems associated with metal-additive silicones and epoxies, which tend to lose their electrical conductivity enhancements as the temperature increases, thereby diminishing; their usefulness as a solar cell el ...

  3. Obscurant Coatings

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: N/A

    A very lightweight, low-outgasing coating is proposed for obscuration of radar and other electromagnetic signatures. The result is a low-cost method which can greatly reduce observable signatures of space based assets.

  4. Bottom Anti-Reflective Coatings (BARCs) for 193 nm Lithography

    SBC: Brewer Science Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    A long-standing trend in the integrated circuit industry is to reduce pattern geometries on semiconductor substrates. To continue this trend, the next exposure wavelength after on-going deep-ultraviolet (248 nm) will be 193 nm. This SBIR Phase I program will identify and develop thermosetting bottom anti-reflective coatings (BARCs) meeting requirements for use with 193 nm unilayer resists. A serie ...

  5. Development of Uncooled Microbolometer Arrays for IR Imaging

    SBC: Brewer Science Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    Ion-implanted, thin polymer films exhibit a large temperature coefficient of resistance which suggests their application in microbolometer arrays used for infrared ( IR) imaging and temperature mapping. Compared to current microbolometer designs which require a series of difficult deposition steps, an ion-implanted polymer-based device requires only a single layer which can be applied by spin coat ...

  6. Cascaded Cryogenic Flexible Loop Heat Pipes (P12-2511)

    SBC: DYNATHERM CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Future spacecraft will require efficient heat transport at 60K Or lower, and will require flexible and thermal diode features. Cryogenic flexible heat pipes and capillary pumped loops have been developed, but are not capable of adverse tilt operation and rapid, autonomous startup. Loop heat pipes with advanced fine pore evaporator wicks show promise for meeting future needs, provided that rapid, a ...

  7. Novel Auger Transistors

    SBC: Epitaxial Technologies, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Epitaxial Technologies proposes to develop innovative material structures for Auger transistors that can be used for millimeterwave oscillators. We will achieve this objective by performing device designs to determine suitable material structures and epitaxial growth processes. The primary goal of this proposed Phase I effort is to demonstrate the feasibility of Auger transistors by developing te ...

  8. Linear Antimony-based HFETs for Microwave and Millimeter Wave Applications

    SBC: Epitaxial Technologies, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Epitaxial Technologies proposes to develop novel material and device tech, nologies using antimony-based active channels for highly linear microwave devices that can be used to simultaneously produce low noise and high power. To do this, we will perform materials and device design to determine suitable material structures and epitaxial growth processes. The main goal of this proposed Phase I effo ...

  9. A High-Speed Full Frame Laser 3D Imager

    SBC: TECHNEST, INC.            Topic: N/A

    High-speed three-dimensional (3D) imaging of objects and targets is a very important functionality of advanced sensor systems in both military and civilian applications. This capability can provide many BMDO systems with a leapfrog performance advance in target detection, identification, classification, tracking, and kill determination. The 3D imaging techniques also have enormous commercial marke ...

  10. A Novel Omni-directional 3D Camera for Battlefield Modeling

    SBC: TECHNEST, INC.            Topic: N/A

    To the best of our knowledge, there is no existing battle field modeling or reconnaissance technology that can provide both the real-time three dimensional (3D) range information and the omni-directional viewing capability at any cost. The primary objective of this project is to fill this gap, and to develop a high speed and low-cost 3D image sensor with an omni viewing angle (i.e., 360 degree) fo ...
