  1. Scalable technology for growth of high quality single crystal gallium nitride

    SBC: Soraa            Topic: AF08BT20

    We propose to demonstrate and advance several key aspects of our novel, scalable ammonothermal technology for growth of high quality single crystal gallium nitride. Specifically, we propose to demonstrate a high growth rate and high crystalline quality, to design and analyze a pilot-scale reactor, and to construct and validate a quantitative model to describe the fluid dynamics of the growth envi ...

  2. Plasmonic Cavity Spectroscopic Polarimeter

    SBC: ITN ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF08T027

    This Small Business Technology Transfer program will develop a spectroscopic polarimeter-on-a-chip using novel plasmonic resonant cavities sensitive to linear polarization over a narrow wavelength range. Spectral selection will be possible through geometric scaling, with this work concentrating on the visible to near infrared wavelength band. Dielectric gratings with subwavelength period will act ...

  3. Nanotailored Carbon Fibers & Forms

    SBC: NanoRidge Materials            Topic: AF08T028

    Carbon fibers are widely used in a variety of applications including aerospace, military and automotive. These applications are limited by the trade-offs that must be made between structural and conductive properties. A new area of interest is the nanotailoring of fibers with carbon nanotubes (CNT) to produce a high strength, high modulus light-weight carbon fiber that is thermally and/or electri ...

  4. Orthogonal Chip Based Electronic Sensors for Chemical Agents

    SBC: SEACOAST SCIENCE, INC.            Topic: AF08T015

    Recent years have seen a shift in threats to US national security. Today increasing focus for national security is management of terrorist activities. Deliberately exposing a civilian population to chemicals and explosives to cause harm represents a looming terrorist threat. Early detection and identification is a difficult but essential element to minimizing the threat. The Seacoast Science/U ...

  7. Conformal Hybrid Organic/Inorganic Antireflective Coatings

    SBC: ZT Solar, Inc            Topic: AF10BT19

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this STTR Phase II project is to demonstrate that resonant infrared matrix-assisted pulsed laser evaporation (RIR-MAPLE) is a commercially-viable technology for the deposition of hybrid organic/inorganic polymeric, gradient refractive index, anti-reflection (GRIN-ARTM) coatings on both rigid and flexible substrates. Description of Effort: Based on the feasibility rese ...

  8. A Novel High Efficiency Thermal-Electrochemical Device for Hybrid PV/T Systems

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: AF10BT22

    ABSTRACT: There are a growing number of military (and civilian) applications for unmanned aircraft. To extend their mission capabilities, unmanned aircraft can incorporate solar panels onto their structure to generate electrical energy from the sun. Solar cell efficiency is inversely proportional to the cell's operating temperature. Therefore, thermal management of solar modules is import ...

  9. High frequency (HF) direction-finding (DF) system based on an array of high-Tc superconducting quantum interference devices (SQUIDs)

    SBC: Out of the Fog Research LLC            Topic: AF10BT40

    ABSTRACT: In Phase II, we will fabricate a SQUID array antenna. We will develop cryopackaging and control electronics for these devices. We integrate the device onto a cryocooler and build a laboratory prototype. We will then have all of the building blocks to build a fieldable prototype in Phase III. BENEFIT: Military Application: Microwave Communication Systems for ISR. Commercial Application ...

  10. Nublu: Assured Information Sharing in Clouds

    SBC: Modus Operandi, Inc.            Topic: AF11BT30

    ABSTRACT: We propose to develop an assured information sharing framework for cloud-based systems that leverages our ongoing work in the areas of policy-based usage management and semantic interoperability. The development of this framework will involve the creation of a novel approach to information sharing that treats security as a commodity that can be dynamically provisioned within the cloud, ...
