  2. Improved Microcalorimeter Detectors for X-Ray Chemical Shift Mapping

    SBC: STAR CRYOELECTRONICS LLC            Topic: N/A

    X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy is a widely used and extremely sensitive analytical technique for qualitative as well as quantitative chemical analysis. Superconducting Transition Edge Sensor (TES) microcalorimeter detectors have now been developed that achieve an energy resolution of 2 eV (full width at half maximum) for 1.5 keV X-rays, which is sufficient to enable the measurement of the small s ...

  3. Large-Area, High-Uniformity Photodiodes for Infrared Trap Detectors

    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 ...

  7. Enhanced Small Arms Ammunition

    SBC: LIBERTY AMMUNITION, INC.            Topic: SOCOM06008

    Historically, small arms ammunition has been limited in it's performance due to dated projectile designs. Recently, Liberty Ammunition has introduced a novel patented projectile design, which optimizies accuracy, range, hard and soft target perfomance in a single round. This innovation increases the capability of existing small arms and eliminates the need for users to carry more than one typ ...

  8. Advanced Longevity System for the Environmental Protection of Electrochromic Materials

    SBC: ECLIPSE ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF06019

    Eclipse has a variable transmittance coating to meet the requirement for a single day/night visor for aircrews. The Eclipse Electrochromic Device (EclipseECD) is well suited for light modulation applications. The EclipseECD modulates transmitted light intensity over a broad range (80% to 20% transmission) by changing optical density under an applied electric field (1.5V). This process is reversed ...
