  3. Economically Recovering Rare Earth Materials

    SBC: XPLOSAFE, LLC            Topic: DLA161003

    This SBIR Phase I project will demonstrate the feasibility of a novel process whereby rare earth metals can be extracted from industrial and post-consumer waste materials and then readily separated into the individual metals. Conventional procedures for accomplishing this difficult task typically employ numerous steps and generate large quantities of waste. Since the proposed process is based on p ...

  4. Fiber Pigtailed On-Chip Mid-infrared Difference Frequency Generation in Silicon

    SBC: Omega Optics, Inc.            Topic: 90102

    Omega Optics will develop a fiber-coupled platform in strained silicon-on-sapphire (SoS) for tunable difference frequency generation in midwave infrared (MIR) with tunable continuous wave sources in the near-infrared (NIR). Stress exerted by silicon nitride on underlying silicon induces second-order nonlinear susceptibility. NIR light is coupled into silicon and MWIR light is coupled out of silico ...

  5. Gap-Free Model-Based Engineering for Manufacturing and Analysis: Digital Thread without Translation

    SBC: Nvariate, Inc.            Topic: None

    Modern Model-Based Enterprise / Engineering (MBE) systems rely on freeform surfaces built as complex combinations of geometric primitives to define engineered objects. Unfortunately, the intersection of freeform surfaces in MBE applications results in highly approximated solutions, degrading models that cost billions annually by US industry to fix. Current technology limits the abilities of users ...

  6. 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 ...

  9. Pre-concentrator for Capture of Trace Fluorocarbons

    SBC: XPLOSAFE, LLC            Topic: 90108

    While fluorocarbons are released in relatively small amounts, they can have half-lives in the atmosphere as long as 50,000 years. However, they have extremely high global warming potential relative to other greenhouse gases, so that even small atmospheric concentrations can have large effect on global temperatures. For this reason, monitoring atmospheric concentrations of these compounds, identify ...
