  7. Coherence Collapse- Speckle Reduction at the Laser Source

    SBC: Microvision, Inc.            Topic: AF083233

    Laser projection systems deliver the highest resolution, contrast ratios, color purity, and screen uniformity as compared to other display technologies used in flight simulation but suffer from an image artifact called speckle that manifests as random variations in the image intensity resulting from interference of many projected and scattered coherent laser light waves.  Contractor proposes a sp ...

  8. AlInN Lattice Matched Barrier HEMTs on Low Defect Bulk and Quasi-Bulk III-Nitride Substrates

    SBC: NITEK, INC.            Topic: AF08T006

    The goal of the Phase I program is to demonstrate the feasibility of our technical approach to grow AlInN lattice Matched Barrier HEMTs on low defect Bulk and quasi-bulk III-Nitride Substrates (GaN). This will be accomplished using our pulsed MOCVD growth technique to deposit AlInN films at a higher growth temperature than conventional MOCVD deposition methods, resulting in better material qualit ...

  10. Optical Switching Fabric

    SBC: OPTICOMP CORP.            Topic: AF083209

    The major requirements for this program include the modeling of optical switching fabric technologies appropriate to space-borne systems at very high speed. Specifically, this program will evaluate two OptiComp candidate optical transceiver technologies against a Serial Rapid IO switching fabric. A down-selection to one optical transceiver technology will be made. Then, a simulation of that Serial ...
