SBC: Aculight Corporation Topic: N/A
Aculight proposes to develop a laser source that will enable NIST to perform highly sensitive water vapor detection via cavity ring-down spectroscopy. The source will operate over a wavelength region centered at 1380nm. It will be based upon frequency conversion of a single frequency fiber source using an optical parametric oscillator (OPO).The performance of the source in terms of several critica ...SBIR Phase I 2003 Department of CommerceNational Institute of Standards and Technology
Low Damage Ion Beam Etching Technique and Method for Compositional Profiling of Thin Multilayer FilmsSBC: 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 ...SBIR Phase I 2003 Department of CommerceNational Institute of Standards and Technology
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 ...SBIR Phase I 2003 Department of CommerceNational Institute of Standards and Technology
