  1. Ultra High Repetition Rate Multi-Parameter Imaging Diagnostics for Reacting Flows

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: AF11BT16

    ABSTRACT: Study of non-stationary phenomena in turbulent combusting flows requires spatial measurements of a set of parameters at kHz rates. Ideally these parameters would include the velocity , temperature, and a relevant species concentration. In response to this need, ORBITEC and the University of Wisconsin-Madison propose to develop a technique to measure velocity, temperature, and OH conce ...

  2. Volume Charge Distribution Measurement in Thin Dielectrics

    SBC: CoMMET, LLC            Topic: AF11BT20

    ABSTRACT: An instrument measuring volume charges in thin dielectric films is proposed. The instrument utilizes an enhanced Pulsed Electro-Acoustic (PEA) technique and delivers submicron spatial and at least 0.1 micro-Coulombs per cubic centimeter resolutions of the charge density. Traditional PEA instruments suffer from significant signal loss due to acoustic mismatches between the testing materi ...

  3. Defect Passivation for Improved Material Properties in Ga-free and Ga-based SLS

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: MDA12T003

    A collaboration between Amethyst Research Inc., University Multispectral Laboratories (a government-owned, contractor-operated nonprofit corporation), and Teledyne Imaging Systems (a large defense contractor) proposes to develop/improve high-performance infrared sensors based on Type II, strained-layer superlattices (SLS). Such sensors offer (theoretical) advantages over state-of-the-art HgCdTe p ...

  4. High-Power, Continuous-Wave 3.0- to 3.5-Micron Emitting Quantum Cascade Semiconductor Laser

    SBC: INTRABAND, LLC            Topic: N12AT003

    The technical objectives of this proposal are: 1) the design of 3.0-3.5 micron-emitting quantum cascade laser (QCL) structures grown on metamorphic-buffer-layer (MBL) substrates; 2) the realization of electroluminescent QCL structures on MBLs with emission in the 3.0-3.5-micron wavelength range. Novel tapered active-region (TA) QCLs will be designed to substantially suppress carrier leakage out of ...

  5. Dive Helmet Noise Quieting

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N12AT020

    Helmeted navy divers are exposed to high levels of noise from self-generated mechanisms, such as regulator exhaust, and external sources, such as underwater tool-generated noise. Noise exposure limits can be easily exceeded especially if effective communications through helmet-mounted speakers is required. A multi-faceted approach is proposed to reduce self-generated noise as well as overall helme ...

  6. Underwater Sensor System Autonomous Burial and Operation

    SBC: Makai Ocean Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N11AT017

    In coordination with the SPAWAR Systems Center (SSC), San Diego, Makai Ocean Engineering, Inc. is proposing to develop an Autonomous Burial Vehicle (ABV) to install U.S. surveillance arrays. The proposed work focuses on: (a) designing an ABV that can bury a long surveillance array following a pre-determined route on the seabed (b) manufacturing a full-scale ABV prototype able to perform the missio ...

  7. The Use of Hydrogen for Defect Reduction in Large Format Infrared Detector Materials

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: MDA11T002

    In Phase I we demonstrated a novel in-situ cleaning technique based on UV-activated surface reactions involving ozone and hydrogen to remove organic adsorbates and chemically-bonded impurities, e.g oxides, from the substrate surface. In Phase II the program will develop this process to significantly decrease the density of material defects in large-format, infrared, focal-plane arrays. Electrica ...

  9. Biofilm Restoration for Contaminated Army Sites

    SBC: CENTER FOR INNNOVATION, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Many Unites States Army, and other Department of Defense (DoD) sites, are contaminated with a variety of contaminants including highly energetic compounds, such as 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT), hexahydro-1,3,5-trinitro-1,3,5-triazine (RDX), chlorinated aliphatics (such as trichloroethylene,TCE) and chlorinated aromatics. These compounds often persist in soil or groundwater for extended periods of t ...
