  1. Low Damage Ion Beam Etching Technique and Method for Compositional Profiling of Thin Multilayer Films

    SBC: 4WAVE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Thin film multilayers of nanometer scale thickness are fundamental to the future of electronics and communications technologies. Chemical depth profiling by ion etching techniques are critical to the characterization of these structures. A fundamental problem with current ion etching technologies is that typical ion energies (~1k eV to 20 keV) create extensive damage and intermixing of nanometer t ...

  2. Intelligent Tools with Ambient-Powered Wirelss Sensors

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    Next-generation smart machine tools are currently under research and development. Critical to the success of these tools will be the inclusion of smart sensors. These sensor suites will need to measure physical parameters such as temperature, vibration, pressure and so on. Luna Innovations has extensive experience in developing solar powered wireless systems to transmit sensor data. Luna proposes ...

  3. Development of UltrastableTi:sapphire Lasers for Optical Clock and Spectroscopy Applications

    SBC: Kapteyn-Murnane Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase 1 project proposes to develop a femtosecond laser system optimized for optical clocks and other precision metrology applications. In principle, atomic optical transitions have the potential to provide radically higher-accuracy timekeeping, because of the very high frequency of an optical transition. The problem of counting, or down-counting, the oscill ...

  4. Direct-Digital Phase & Amplitude Noise Measurement System

    SBC: TIMING SOLUTIONS            Topic: N/A

    We propose to compare alternative architectures for phase noise measurement by directly sampling the RF waveform. Out of band modulation and cross correlation will reduce noise. The capabilities of each architecture will be determined using analysis and simulation. The results will be used to determine the feasibility of developing a commercially useful measurement instrument. If the results are p ...

  5. Surface Selective Chiral Detection: A New Metrology Technique

    SBC: Vescent Photonics LLC            Topic: N/A

    The near chiral purity of the biosphere leads to a vast array of chiro-specific physiological responses. This chiro-specificity, in turn, gives rise to the need for the manufacturing of enantiomerically pure chiral chemicals, such as pesticides, pharmaceuticals, food additives, pigments, etc. Critical to the efficacy of both chiro-specific biology and chiro-synthesis/separation are the interfacial ...

  6. Compact, Turnable Diode Laser for Water-Vapor Spectroscopy

    SBC: Vescent Photonics LLC            Topic: N/A

    We will develop a compact external cavity stabilization system, which will employ independent electro-optic control over the optical path length of the cavity and a wavelength-selective element. The system should be able to cover a 30 nm range and give mode-hop-free tuning over 20 nm intervals. The design of the feedback system will be compatible with any commercially available laser diode from 63 ...

  7. HF to UHF Camouflaged Antenna

    SBC: AVTEC SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Avtec views this SOCOM program as an RF systems development program, more than just an antenna development program. The family of antennas developed under this program must work with a wide range of communications systems, and also provide a wide range offunctionality (communications reception and transmission over a broad frequency range with multiple radio systems, provide omni and directional c ...

  8. Hand-held, Standoff Chemical-Biological Hazard Detector

    SBC: CRE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Handheld stand-off chemical agent detection is the next step in a line of research dating back 30 years. Technology has advanced to the point where reasonable designs for Infrared Spectrometers to remotely introgate chemical agents from very smallpackages can be considered.The incremental, adaptive engineering to move from man-portable systems to hand-held operation requires careful consideration ...

  9. Nano-Scale Particle Coatings for Service Life Extension of Small Arm Components

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    Wear and erosion limit the service life and degrade the performance of weapons used by U. S. Special Operations Forces. Gun barrel coatings to maintain barrel life, overall weapon performance and reduce sustainment costs are required. These new coatingswill conform to environmental initiatives to reduce hexavalent chrome usage. Luna Innovations will develop a complete coating process and system ...

  10. Small, Low Cost Emitter Geolocation System for use by SOF Personnel

    SBC: INFORMATION SYSTEMS LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The geolocater developed under this SBIR will be based on an existing design developed under the DARPA Wolfpack program and adapted for the SOCOM mission. It will be a modular device operating as part of a SOF tool box, and will employ a set of algorithmsthat can be applied to the given emitter type to produce optimum geolocation results. The best algorithm for the situation will be chosen automat ...
