  1. High Speed Polarization Modulation of Microcavity Lasers for Laser Radar (LADAR) Applications

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: ST092003

    A need exists for polarization interrogating and discriminating Ladar systems to detect and discriminate defilade targets. In the proposed effort, Aerius, and our partner at the University of Illinois, will apply photonic crystal technology to extend Aerius’ high power, high wall plug efficiency, Vertical-Cavity Surface-Emitting Laser (VCSEL) results to develop a stable polarization switched VC ...

  2. Novel Methods for Rapid Detection of Infection Agents and the Severity of Cellular Damage

    SBC: DiaCarta            Topic: ST081003

    Early detection of virulent infectious pathogens is critical to blocking the devastating epidemic spread of the pathogen and the potential harm this could have on our armed forces and general populations. In Phase I, we have utilized the state-of-the-art QuantiGene 2.0 technology to establish an assay for the sensitive quantification of SARS (epidemic spread in 2001) and assessing plasma DNA level ...

  3. Ultra Low Drive Voltage Electro-Optic Modulator

    SBC: Freedom Photonics LLC            Topic: ST081014

    The development of compact, ultra-low drive voltage optical phase modulators is a critical key component for passive antenna remoting applications, a strategic area, part of a number of current and upcoming DARPA initiatives. With the development of sufficiently low V-pi modulators, passive front-ends can be constructed with a low figure even for a moderate optical pumping power. The combination o ...

  4. Polarization switching VCSEL (P-VCSEL)

    SBC: ZIVA CORPORATION            Topic: ST092003

    Ziva Corporation in collaboration with UCSB will assess the feasibility of developing a directly modulated polarization switching laser based on the Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (VCSEL) geometry with a 3dB frequency of at least 10 GHz. This will be a major breakthrough in the ability to cost effectively fabricate directly modulated lasers (even in 2-D arrays) with polarization diversity ...

  5. Modeling Leadership Dynamics in Multinational Environments

    SBC: MacroCognition, LLC            Topic: ST092002

    We propose to develop a computational model of leadership designed to capture complex variables including cultural differences in leadership requirements along with task differences, primarily ill-defined goals, which pose leadership challenges. Rather than avoiding these kinds of complexity and developing a computational model that is unlikely to scale up, we believe there is more to be gained b ...

  6. Long Coherence Length Far Ultraviolet Laser for High-Resolution Nano-Fabrication

    SBC: Actinix            Topic: ST071006

    Cost effective semiconductor processing tools that enable the high-resolution nano-fabrication of low-volume electronics are needed by the DOD. The printing of ultra-fine gratings on silicon wafers using interference immersion lithography is envisaged as a first maskless process step in the fabrication of advanced application specific integrated circuits. Next generation interference immersion lit ...

  7. Generation and amplification of gravitational waves for military communications

    SBC: SLS, LLC            Topic: ST13A003

    We propose a gravitational-radiation military communications system which is based on quantum-mechanical parametric amplifiers, oscillators, and transducers. In the transmitter at a remote site A, a parametric amplifier using a Planck-mass-scale, moving s

  8. Modeling and Optimizing Turbines for Unsteady Flow

    SBC: Florida Turbine Technologies Inc.            Topic: ST13A005

    Pressure gain combustion has the potential to significantly improve the specific fuel consumption for gas turbine engines by realizing a pressure rise through the combustor as opposed to a pressure drop. One drawback to this form of combustion is the cycl
