  1. VOLTAGE TUNABLE MULTI-SPECTRAL INFRARED SENSOR

    SBC: Schmidt Instruments Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SCHMIDT INSTRUMENTS PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A NOVEL TUNABLE PHOTODETECTOR BASED ON A DOUBLE BARRIER PHOTON ASSISTED RESONANT TUNNELING STRUCTURE. THE DEVICE CAN BE FABRICATED FROM A NUMBER OF SEMICONDUCTOR SYSTEMS DEPENDING ON THE DETECTOR CHARACTERISTICS ONE DESIRES. FOR EXAMPLE, A DETECTOR BASED ON THE GAAS/ALGAAS SYSTEM WOULD BE CAPABLE OF DETECTING PHOTONS WITH ENERGIES THROUGHOUT THE INFRARED SPE ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Ultra Low-Loss Optoelectronic Packaging

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

    Conventional optoelectronic packaging technologies failed to provide low-loss coupling among various optoelectronic devices that are pivotal for BMDO-mission-related tasks. To bridge different effective apertures of various optoelectronic devices are the major bottleneck needs to be overcome. Radiant Research, Inc., proposes a drastically new idea to solve this problem by introducing a mode-matche ...

  5. Ultrahigh Quality, Single-Crystal Bulk Silicon Carbide

    SBC: INTRINSIC SEMICONDUCTOR CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Silicon carbide materials will revolutionize semiconductor devices for military and commercial markets. The material's wide bandgap, high electric field breakdown, high thermal conductivity give SiC capabilities that far exceed those of silicon or gallium arsenide. Despite significant progress in silicon carbide development, fundamental defects--most prominently micropipes--persist. If SiC is to s ...

  6. Ultrafine SiC for Optical Mirrors

    SBC: Materials Modifications Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SiC has exceptionally high thermal conductivity and low linear expansion coefficient to resist thermal distortion, high elastic modulus to resist pressure and bowing distortion. It is lightweight and wear resistant. It also has excellent corrosion resistance and outstanding load bearing characteristics at elevated temperatures. Its hardness is only surpassed by diamond, CBN and boron carbide. As ...

  7. Ultrafine HfC/TaC for Rocket Thrusters

    SBC: Materials Modifications Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Liquid rocket engine performance can be dramatically improved by increasing the wall temperatures for operation concurrent with a reduction in the component weight. The bipropellant fuel combustion temperatures are between 3000 "approx" 3500 C. The conventional thrusters and exit nozzles made of niobium alloys have a maximum operating temperature limit of 1600 C. A regenerative cooling technolo ...

  8. Type-II Quantum Cascade Lasers for 3 to 4 micron IR Sources

    SBC: Qet, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In this research, we will investigate and develop a new class of mid-infrared (3-5 pm) diode lasers vVhich was first proposed by the PI. These lasers utilize interband transitions for photon emission in a staircase of Sb-based type-ll quantum wells. In this way, we retain the advantages of cascaded tunneling injection and wavelength tunability, while circumventing the fast phonon scattering loss e ...

  9. Type-II Quantum Cascade Lasers for 8-12 Micron IR Sources

    SBC: Qet, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In the proposed research, we will investigate a new class of long wavelength-IR (8-12 um) lasers which was first suggested by the PI in 1994. These lasers are based on cascaded type-II quantum wells. They maintain the electron recycling advantage of the recently reported quantum cascade laser, while circumvent its limitations. Not only can a population inversion be easily created with a nearly 100 ...

  10. True Three Dimensional Monitor

    SBC: SPECIALTY DEVICES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO BUILD, TEST AND CHARAXTERIZE A NOVEL THREE DIMENSIONAL MONITOR FOR THE DIRECT DISPLAY OF THREE (OR HIGHER) DIMENSIONAL INFORMATION. OUR DEVICE IS CONSTRUCTED OF A THREE DIMENSIONAL ARRAY OF PIXELS, ACTUALLY "VOXELS", WHICH IN THEIR QUIESCENT STATE ARE TRANSPARENT. WHEN THESE ELEMENTS ARE EXCITED OPTICALLY, THROUGH A FIBER OPTIC PIGTAIL, THEY FLOURESCE. THE SUM OF MANY FLOURESCING ELE ...
