  1. A Waveguide Based, High Power Pockels Cell Modulator for Sub-Nanosecond Pulse Slicing

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: T401

    The Goal of this STTR is to develop a high speed, high power, waveguide based modulator (phase and amplitude) and investigate its use as a pulse slicer. The key innovation in this effort is the use of potassium titanyl phosphate (KTP) waveguides making the high power, polarization based waveguide amplitude modulator possible. Furthermore because it is fabricated in KTP, the waveguide component w ...

  4. Advanced Tethersonde for High-Speed Flux Measurements

    SBC: Anasphere, Inc            Topic: S108

    Flux measurements of trace gases and other quantities, such as latent heat, are of great importance in scientific field research. One typical flux measurement setup involves placing measurement equipment (sonic anemometers and associated sensors or samplers) on rigid towers (rigidity being required to provide a stable platform for the sonic anemometers). These towers are relatively immobile, and ...

  5. Cloud Liquid Water Content Sensor for Radiosondes

    SBC: Anasphere, Inc            Topic: A104

    Icing is one of the most significant hazards to aircraft. There is still much research to be completed with regard to developing remote-sensing technologies for accurately identifying where icing conditions exist in clouds. There is a need to provide in-situ measurements of cloud liquid water content to validate the remote measurements.Anasphere, Inc. proposes to develop a modernized version of ...

  7. Fast, Low Loss, Electro-Optic Switch for Quantum Information Processing

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: O103

    Single photon sources and detectors hold the key to achieving success in several quantum communication and computation applications. Many of these goals can be achieved with the realization of low-loss high-speed switching for single photons. AdvR proposes a unique implementation of an electro-optic (EO) deflector with ideal properties for single photon switching. The device operates on the pri ...

  10. Group III-Nitride LNAs for Microwave Radiometry

    SBC: The IIIAN Company, LLC            Topic: S103

    This phase I proposal addresses the need for microwave and millimeter wave Low Noise Amplifiers (LNAs) for remote sensing applications of the earth's atmosphere. In this work, IIIAN proposes using group III-nitride materials, specifically AlGaN/GaN HEMT structures, to fabricate LNAs for microwave radiometers operating from 165 GHz up to 270 GHz. The group III-nitrides have excellent physica ...
