SBC: AET, Inc. Topic: DMEA142001
AET will perform R&D to develop a quantum cryptographic single photon counting system (or detector) consisting of a high performance integrated circuit chip and detector (such as an avalanche photodiode) for use in a secure fiber optic communications link. Quantum cryptography applies an encryption scheme that uses a series of single, polarized photons that act as the key between the sender an ...SBIR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseDefense Microelectronics Activity
SBC: Amethyst Research Incorporated Topic: 9020168R
methyst Research Inc. will design, fabricate and test a high uniformity, large area, low noise infrared trap-detector detector for the 1- 4.5 μm wavelength range. This state of the art detector will have a large area (e.g., 1-1.8 cm diameter active area) with a spatial variability of internal quantum efficiency of less than 0.1 % between 1 μm and 4.5 μm. In addition, the internal quantum effici ...SBIR Phase I 2015 Department of CommerceNational Institute of Standards and Technology
