  1. High Speed Nano-Infrared Spectroscopy

    SBC: Anasys Instruments Corp.            Topic: AF08BT30

    Anasys Instruments in collaboration with University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and subcontractor Dr. Konstantin Vodopyanov propose to develop the world’s first high speed nano infrared spectroscopy (“NanoIR”) capability. By combining and extending the capabilities of infrared spectroscopy and atomic force microscopy, this breakthrough platform will provide sub-100 nm chemical mapping capa ...

  2. VLSI Compatible Silicon-on-Insulator Plasmonic Components

    SBC: ITN ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF08BT18

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project will develop ultradense, low-power plasmonic integration components and devices for on-chip manipulation and processing of optical signals. Both passive and active components will be studied. Detailed performance predictions will be obtained through finite element modeling (FEM) of the harmonic Maxwell’s equations. The FEM provides detai ...

  4. Ultradense Plasmonic Integrated Devices and Circuits

    SBC: ULTIMARA INC.            Topic: AF08BT18

    We propose to develop ultradense plasmonic integrated devices and circuits for optical interconnect compatible with the electronic circuitry. In our proposal, we will employ engineered metallic nanostructures that combine energy concentration by plasmonic lenses and retardation-based plasmonic resonances to even further boost the efficiency of materials exhibiting optical nonlinearity. These plas ...

  5. Advanced Computational Methods for Study of Electromagnetic Compatibility

    SBC: Hypercomp, Inc.            Topic: AF09BT13

    The leakage of electromagnetic (EM) energy into air vehicles, and particularly into ordnance, poses a hazard that requires careful evaluation. Under current guidelines, such evaluations are primarily to be carried out through extensive testing of items under possible field conditions, a process that can be both time-consuming and costly. The scope of this STTR Phase I activity is to implement a h ...

  6. Improving Software and Data Security in Industrial Control Systems

    SBC: Pikewerks Corporation            Topic: OSD09T003

    Industrial Control Systems (ICS) are critical elements in electrical, water, oil/gas, and manufacturing services involving supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), distributed control systems (DCS), and programmable logic controllers (PLCs). These systems allow operators to monitor sensor data and remotely control field devices. Initially, these devices were designed for closed-network or ...

  7. Advanced High Power Solid-State Burst Generator

    SBC: Ness Engineering, Inc.            Topic: AF09BT14

    Recent advances in dielectric and magnetic materials have spurred renewed interest in the field of solid state pulse and RF burst generation using Non-Linear Transmission Lines (NLTL) . The NLTL approach to HPM and UWB generation eliminates the need for an electron beam, vacuum system and magnets required in conventional HPM sources. Furthermore, the novel waveforms of NLTL generated pulses promi ...

  8. Innovative Combat Simulation to Craft Tomorrow’s UAV Operational Doctrine

    SBC: John Tiller Software, Inc            Topic: AF09BT31

    This proposal is for the use of state-of-the-art computer wargames to be used in the research on the impact and optimal use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in realistic combat scenarios. High fidelity, historically calibrated wargames ranging from sub-tactical ground-centric game engines through operational, strategic, air campaign, and naval-centric game engines will be used to address the fu ...

  9. Plasmon Induced Photoelectrochemistry for artificial photosynthesis

    SBC: Tanner Research, Inc.            Topic: AF09BT39

    The Air Force has a strategic need for a fuel source that is renewable (and which does not rely on foreign petroleum sources). Several approaches to a renewable fuel source have been investigated; with “artificial photosynthesis” being one example. At its core, the photosynthesis reaction is a photoinduced charge separation reaction with light being concentrated by antenna complexes onto a c ...

  10. Ultrahigh Efficiency Quantum Dot Multi-photon Photovoltaics using Nipi Lateral Architecture

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF09BT20

    Higher efficiency solar cells are needed to reduce solar array mass, volume, and cost for Air Force space missions. Intermediate-band quantum-dot (QD) solar cells can yield dramatically higher efficiencies than current multi-junction (MJ) technologies. However, several issues must be addressed to demonstrate manufacturable, high efficiency devices. CFDRC aims to develop: 1) High-efficiency, ligh ...
