  1. Photonic Crystal Infrared Emitter (PhIRE)

    SBC: Firefly Photonics, LLC            Topic: AF171015

    The primary objective of this project is to improve the light extraction efficiency of large-format mid-wave infrared (MWIR) and long-wave infrared (LWIR) superlattice light emitting diode (SLED) arrays for infrared scene projector applications. While SLED technologies have shown great promise for scene projectors, their full potential has yet to be realized due to both electrical and optical inef ...

  2. Optimizing InAs/InAsSb transport using predictive electronic structure code for carrier dynamics including Auger recombination

    SBC: QuantCAD LLC            Topic: AF17CT04

    A model will be developed and validated for electronic transport calculations using a highly accurate, predictive electronic structure code that currently produces electronic structure, optical absorption, radiative and Auger recombination rates for InAs/InAsSb strained-layer superlattices from 5K-300K. The approach will use the novel formulation of Auger recombination pioneered at U. Iowa which d ...

  10. Active-Distributed Boundary Layer Management Using Flow Sensory Actuators

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF08T007

    The goal of achieving efficient flow control becomes even more challenging for MAVs as a result of the significant weight and size limitations. These preclude the use of complex hardware and control schemes which may be usable in conventional aircraft. In this research program, we propose an ambitious but realistic approach for developing and implementing, self-adapting, integrated sensor-actuato ...
