  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. Advanced Tools for Process Specification Language

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This project will (i) extend and harden the PSL Editor and the Ontology-Driven XSLT Generator (ODXG) tools and (ii) extend the process description syntax (PDS) derived from the PSL for both KIF and XML/RDF formats. In addition, we will extend the PSL metatheoretical framework to support the PDS and the PSL tools by providing PSL extensions to support calendars and activity specialization, and by d ...

  5. PSL-based Process Knowledge Integration and Management Framework

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a robust framework, called the Process Knowledge Integration and Management Framework (PKIMF), to support the complete lifecycle of enterprise process knowledge that natively use the Process Specification Language (PSL). PKIMF uses a dashboard approach to design, analyze, integrate, exchange, and manage process knowledge. Its features and capabilities include the use of a pro ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Development of Multifunctional Open-system Sensor Integration Tool (MOSIT)

    SBC: WILLIAMSRDM, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Williams-Pyro, Inc. proposes to model and develop software to provide an interface allowing a common method of incorporating sensing components within different systems. The proposed software package, called the Multifunctional Open-system Sensor Integration Tool (MOSIT), will provide the circuit designer with a complete sensor interface solution. MOSIT will provide not only the Network Capable Ap ...

  10. Development of the Smart Environmental Monitoring System (SEMS)

    SBC: WILLIAMSRDM, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Firefighters have expressed the need for both increased accuracy in fire detection systems and greater access to environmental information in the event of a fire. To accomplish both tasks, Williams-Pyro, Inc. proposes to develop the Smart Environmental Monitoring System (SEMS). This system comprises both an advanced fire detection system and the networking capability necessary to provide real-time ...
