  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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Solid State Piezoelectric Flexure Mechanism for Vibration Attenuation/Isolation

    SBC: Garman Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed effort focuses on the need for innovative, space realizable, self-contained solid state flexure mechanism for vibration attenuation/isolation. The proposed mechanism is a sealed linear actuator capable of high bandwidth (0-1 kHz) control. A design feasibility study will be performed on the use of piezoelectrics in an innovative flexure mechanism to provide robust vibration attenuation ...

  7. SOL-GEL GLASS PRISMATIC COVER FOR A PHOTOVOLTAIC CELL

    SBC: ENTECH, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    OVER THE PAST 6 YEARS, ENTECH HAS DEVELOPED A UNIQUE PRISMATIC COVER FOR PHOTOVOLTAIC CELLS. THE NEW CAST SILICONE COVER OPTICALLY ELIMINATES THE USUAL SHADOWING LOSS CAUSED BY METAL GRIDLINES ON THE ILLUMINATED CELL SURFACE, THEREBY BOOSTING CELL PERFORMANCE TO PREVIOUSLY UNATTAINABLE LEVELS. THE NEW COVER HAS BEEN USED TO SET TEN WORLD RECORDS FOR CELL PERFORMANCE, INCLUDING 31% IN NASA-LEWIS TE ...

  8. Silicon Carbide Using a Pulsed Seeded Supersonic Molecular Beam

    SBC: Systems & Processes Engineering Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Silicon and gallium arsenide cannot meet some of the power, frequency, temperature and speed requirements of the next generation of electronic devices. Therefore, alternative semiconductor materials for electronic devices must be developed. Silicon carbide has many required properties such as wide bandgap, high breakdown field, high electron saturation velocity, and physical strength making it at ...

  9. SI/GE OPTICAL BUS ARRAY AND BINARY FANOUT HOLOGRAM FOR SI-BASED VLSI WAFER-SCALE OPTOELECTRONIC INTERCONNECTS

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

    We propose a dratically new optoelectronic chip modules (OCMs) concepts to optically interconnect Si-based VLSI wafer-scale integrated circuits. Realizing the fact that system clock speed is three to five times higher than that ofprocessor speed, we propose to develop an optical clock signal distribution networks for wafer-scale interconnects. The architecture is to employ a superstrate Si/Ge wave ...
