  1. MWIR Spatial Light Modulators for Hyperspectral Image Projectors

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed effort is to build a high resolution, high speed spatial light modulator (SLM) to be used in infrared (IR) spectral projectors. An IR spectral projector produces programmable spectra by dispersing light onto a programmable array, currently digital micromirror devices (DMDs), which either transmit or block selected components of the light. the light is then recombined to form complex s ...

  2. CVD-based Polytype Controlled SiC Nanowire Growth

    SBC: GENESIC SEMICONDUCTOR INC.            Topic: N/A

    A novel chemical vapor deposition (CVD) based step-flow epitaxy process is proposed for controllable growth of SiC nanowires with high polytype integrity. SiC nanowires will be grown in a modified commercial high-temperature CVD reactor, used by industry for growing high-quality SiC epitaxial thin films. Different polytypes of SiC nanowires will be grown by choosing appropriate substrate materials ...

  5. Development of Improved Virtually-Imaged Phased Arrays

    SBC: Precision Photonics Corporation            Topic: N/A

    VIPA etalons are simple, compact devices that offer many times more dispersion than gratings and are finding increasing application where higher spectral resolution is needed. Current VIPA fabrication methods limit efficiency, spectral resolution, filter response, and spectral bandwidth. Precision Photonics proposes to use its enhanced optical fabrication capabilities to build advanced VIPA protot ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
