  1. Ceramic Dielectric Compositons For Capacitor Applications In The 120-240 K Range

    SBC: CERAMPHYSICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A six-month, $91,305 Phase I SBIR program is proposed to perform ceramic-composition R&D aimed at cryogenic capacitors for the 120 - 240 K temperature range. Candidate compositions from three families of ceramics will be made under subcontract by NexTech Mat'ls Ltd and measured by CeramPhysics, 120 - 240 K (dielectric constant, loss tangent, frequency dependence, electric-field dependence, dielect ...

  2. CdSe-- A Broadband Nuclear Detector Material

    SBC: Cleveland Crystals Inc            Topic: N/A

    CdSe, a wide bandgap semiconductor, combining high resistivity, good carrier trans-port properties, and large average Z number is ideal for use as a room-temperature x-ray and y-ray detector. In the x-ray regime, the large bandgap (-1.7 eV) of GdSe eliminates the need to cool the crystal in order to reduce thermal noise. Si and Ge detectors must be cryogenically cooled, which precludes their use i ...

  3. High-Performance Glassy Liquid Crystal Optical Filters for Laser Protection

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    Glassy liquid crystals (GLCI represent a new emerging class of advanced organic materials which have significant potential for being readily processed into uniform optical quality thin films. In this proposal, we propose to develop high-performance optical filter and polarizer technology specifically for laser protection applications. The proposed GLC-based optical filters are specifically well su ...

  4. High-Speed, Bistable Optical Switch

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    Optical switches are fundamental components of survivable fiber network architectures. They are required to enhance the performance of fiber optic networks through load shifting and to provide disaster recovery when communication links are lost. Optical networks will likely be employed in the next generation of military air- and spacecraft (e.g. JAF) to provide communication links between avionic ...

  5. Carbon Foam and Pseudocapacitance Technology

    SBC: Inorganic Specialists, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Electrochemical capacitors (supercapacitors) are rechargeable devices which deliver high powers for limited periods. The objective of this proposal is to provide new, low-cost approaches for significantly increasing the power and energy storage of carbon supercapacitors. We do this in two ways: A) We improve power by preparing carbon in the form of a contiguous, conductive foam structure. This is ...

  6. A Manufacturable Packaging Technology for Monolithic WDM La

    SBC: Photonic Packaging            Topic: N/A

    PPT, in collaboration with the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, proposes to develop a manufacturable packaging technology for monolithic Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) laser arrays for all-optical fiber communications. The packaging technology will include coupling from a monolithic laser array to individual fibers and a microwave feed for each of the individual elements, all in a hermetically s ...

  7. A New Family of Optical Materials for High Power Optical Frequency Conversion

    SBC: ReyTech Corporation            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I Small Business Innovation Research project aims to develop a novel and highly versatile family of NLO crystals that may overcome the limitations of conventional technology. These materials are multifunctional and exhibit a number of unique properties that include, high nonlinearities, high damage thresholds, wide transparency range, are non-hygroscopic, and melt congruently. The uni ...

  8. Lyotropic Liquid Crystalline Polymers for Extreme Temperature Structural Applications

    SBC: Syscom Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I program will test a solution processing scheme for fabricating shaped structural components, such as sheets and tubes, from a class of rigid-chain lyotropic liquid crystalline polymers. This class of polymers includes rigid-rod polymers such as poly(p-phenylene benzobisthiazole) (PBZT) and extended-chain polymers such as poly(p-phenylene terephthalar ...
