  1. "Plastic Retina"-Image Enhancement Using Polymer Grid Triode

    SBC: UNIAX Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Processing of sensor array data downstream is known to become computationally intractable for many critical problems. The clear military need is to output only essential information off the focal plane, a need which this proposal addresses. Conventionally, analog circuitry used for this purpose imposes additional burdens on available space in the sensor readout unit cell. This proposal addresses t ...

  2. 2-Dimensional, Microchannel Plate, Anti-scatter Focusing Grid for Superior X-ray Imaging Instruments

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation (AASC) proposes to develop a new class of x-ray imaging instruments based on a 2-dimensional, square-pore microchannel plate technology. This square-pore technology could lead to higher sensitivity x-ray telescopes in astronomy, wide field of view sensors for the BMDO mission and to superior anti-scatter grids to enhance contrast and resolution in mammography s ...

  3. A Compact X-Ray Laser

    SBC: Tetra Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The advanced technology described in this proposal promises to increase the performance of laboratory and, specifically, tabletop x-ray lasers by up to an order of magnitude. Such gains in performance coupled with compact technology will lead to the introduction of the world s first table-top, commercial x-ray laser. Tetra proposes to develop an advanced driver for the laboratory laser based upo ...

  4. A High Performance 1550 nm Tunable VCSEL based on GaA1AsSb/AlAsSb on InAs Substrate

    SBC: FERMIONICS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    A novel approach for long-wavelength (1.3 um and 1.55 um) VCSELs based on GaxAl1-xAsySb1-y/AlAs0.16Sb0.84 material system lattice matched to InAs substrate is proposed. Preliminary modeling results have shown that the reflectivity of DBR mirror stack made of this materials system is higher than that of any other III/V semiconductor material systems. Since edge emitting lasers using AlAsO16SbO84 as ...

  5. A Precision Voltage Regulator for Wide Analog to Digital Converters

    SBC: FULL CIRCLE RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Full Circle REsearch, Inc. (FCR) proposes a Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) program to develop an IC compatible, rad-hard precision voltage reference (PVR) with the stability under temperature and radiation required by military and commercial space electronic systems. Stable reference voltages are required for a variety of electronic systems for use in space such as high resolution A/D c ...

  6. A Pulsed-Power Driven Krypton Soft X-Ray Laser Based on A Stabilized Z-Pinch Load

    SBC: BERKELEY RESEARCH ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    Pulsed power is known to be the most efficient way of converting stored electrical energy into plasma thermal energy. Such plasma thermal energy would be available for pumping a soft x-ray laser. High-gain 3s - 3p transitions in neon-like krypton are very attractive for lasing (high rate of collisional excitation to the upper lasing level, fast decay of lower lasing level). Existsng pulsed-power d ...

  7. A United Memory Architecture

    SBC: INTEGRATED MAGNETOELECTRONICS            Topic: N/A

    Computer memory systems are currently based on a hierarchical architecture, driven by the mismatch between the speed of the very fast processor and the orders-of-magnitude slower disk storage. The proposer (IMEC) is developing a new magnetic, solid-state memory based on giant magnetoresistance (GMR) that combines the permanence and radiation hardness of magnetic storage with the random access, sma ...

  8. Active Mirror Laser Amplifier Pumped by New Solid State Light Source Using Selective Thermal Emission

    SBC: QUANTUM GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A new light source using dielectric solids has been under development since the 1980s for thermophotovoltaic (TPV) generation of electricity. The light source is a dielectric refractory solid emitter heated to relatively high temperatures (~1 500_C) by combustion, nuclear or other heat sources. This new light technology has now reached the maturity to be applied to the optical pumping of high powe ...

  10. Actuator for Out-Of-Plane MEMS Devices

    SBC: Tini Alloy Company            Topic: N/A

    The proposed research program is an innovative solution to a critical problem: maintaining stable distance between front and back covers in large, evacuated flat electronic visual displays. Evacuation is necessary because atmospheric pressure distorts the front and back plane surfaces. A solution consists of placing many small columns between the surfaces to hold them apart at a precise distance. ...
