  1. 3D IMAGING OF OPAQUE OBJECTS BY USING PHASE RETRIEVAL

    SBC: ADVANCED MODULAR POWER SYSTEMS            Topic: N/A

    As an alternative to holographic laser radar, AMPS will develop a 3-D imaging concept that collects far-field intensity speckle patterns. This kind of measurement greatly relaxes the tolerances on vibration and coherence length. However, phase retrieval will be required to retrieve a 3-D image. Phase retrieval algorithms typically utilize some type of prior knowledge about the object. In industria ...

  2. Optical Techniques for Tbits/Second Communication

    SBC: CLARK-MXR, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This program will demonstrate key enabling technologies for Terabit/second optical fiber networks capable of meeting critical DoD needs. Optical network technology offers characteristics that satisfy many DoD requirements. These characteristics include improved data handling through multiwavelength transmission in single optical fibers; enhanced network security; greater inter-network operabilit ...

  3. Small Lot Repair/Manufacture of Microcircuit Boards by Laser Deposition

    SBC: Cm Consulting            Topic: N/A

    The final prototype of the Microcircuit Board Repair apparatus will be capable of laying down or lifting metal strips with micrometer dimensions. Under real time computer control, the translation stages will be fully automated or manually controlled. The end user will monitor the process in real time using a camera attached with the source. Laying down the metal lines will be done using Laser C ...

  4. Chalcogenide Superconductors

    SBC: Cryopower Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO SEARCH FOR NEW SUPERCONDUCTORS THAT ARE SIMILAR TO THE PEROVSKITE-BASED HIGH TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTORS (HTS), BUT WITH THE OXYGEN REPLACED BY A CHALCOGEN, THAT IS SULFUR, SELENIUM OR TELLURIUM. WE BELIEVE THAT THE HTS COPPER OXIDES ARE NOT A UNIQUE ACCIDENT OF NATURE, BUT THAT THERE ARE OTHER COMPLEX CHEMICAL COMPOUNDS THAT COULD ALSO BE SUPERCONDUCTING. AN OBVIOUS PLACE TO LOOK WO ...

  5. Development of Diode-Pumped Tunable Ultrafast Mid-Infrared laser Using CO2+-Doped II-VI Crystals

    SBC: First American International            Topic: N/A

    One of the most interesting wavelengths for many science and engineering applications is the mid-infrared band. We propose to develop a new compact tunable laser with output wavelength from 3 to 4 micrometers, pumped by powerful AlGaAs semiconductor lasers. The laser will use a new and less-explored lasing material, Co doped II-VI semiconductors, as the gain medium. The lasing medium has a strong ...

  6. Adaptive Signal Conditioning and Calibration of Microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS)

    SBC: IC TECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A strong analogy exists between today's MEMS device and the first prototypes of the transistor. Research and development in semiconducto devices made the integration of millions of transistors into a single chip possible. It is anticipated that similar market forces will deman the integration of hundreds and later thousands of MEMS based sensors and actuators onto the same substrate in the next de ...

  7. Ultraspectral Imager

    SBC: Kestrel Corporation            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I SBIR demonstrates the underlying technology required to construct an ultraspectral imager that has the ability to spectrally resolve molecular absorption lines while simultaneously creating a two dimensional spatial mapping. The proposed instrument will have a spectral resolution that is better than 2 cm-1 and two dimensional spatial resolution that exceeds 2 milliradian. Based on Fou ...

  8. Joining of Ceramic Composite Materials

    SBC: NANOCEROX, INC..            Topic: N/A

    Ceramic/ceramic composites are high performance structural elements in many military and commercial applications. Cost-effective methods of producing mechanically strong bonds between ceramic composite components during fabrication of complex shapes are critical to achieving next generation performance targets for both industrial (automotive) and military (aerospace) applications. Existing materia ...

  9. Advanced Metal Powder Manufacture for MLCC Applications

    SBC: NANOCHEM RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Sensors, capacitors, and conducting features such as resistors and capacitors on circuit boards are produced from metal and ceramic powders 1-12 These powders are manufactured by liquid phase precipitation routes which often start with reduction of metal salts or by solid-state routes where solid reactants are mixed, heated and then milled. The solid-state processing is generally repeated several ...

  10. Data Analysis Tools for HLA Simulations

    SBC: OPTIMETRICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    OptiMetrics, Inc. proposes to develop real-time monitoring and after action review tools specifically designed to function in advanced HLA simulation environments. The development approach will include: Tailoring tools to user requirements; A highly object-oriented design; A layered design to interface between our software and the external interfaces (e.g., HLA/RTI); A preference for COTS or GOT ...
