The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  2. Advanced nanocomposite scintillator for gamma radiation detection

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: DTRA08005

    Gamma radiation detection has traditionally required single crystal materials that are difficult to produce consistently on an industrial scale. Agiltron has developed a new class of scintillator materials based on composites containing nanoparticles. These so-called nanocomposites exhibit radiation detection characteristics superior to currently available single crystal scintillators. In Phase I ...

  3. A Novel Cost Effective Method for Growing High Performance Radiation Sensors

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA082007

    Certain lanthanide halides have significantly higher light output than NaI:Tl, the comparison standard for scintillators, plus other important properties, including fast decay times and excellent proportionality. Unfortunately, lanthanide halides grown by traditional melt processes have high production costs and limited availability. Crystals are usually limited to about 5x5 cm2, right cylinder, ...

  5. Low-noise amplifier (LNA) and Power amplifier (PA) for Radio-Frequency (RF) System-on–Chip (SoC) Applications on Silicon on Sapphire (SOS) Substrates

    SBC: Tahoe RF Semiconductor Inc.,            Topic: DMEA092002

    This proposal explores the feasibility of a communication system based on the modulation of a magnetic field. The principle of mutual induction states that the voltage induced by mutual induction in one inductor is always proportional to the rate of current change in the other inductor. If one inductor is in the transmitter, and the other inductor is in the receiver, the induced voltage in the r ...

  6. Characterization and Mitigation of Radiation Effects in High-Speed Compound Semiconductor Microelectronics

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA08003

    For ultra high-speed, ultra low-power applications in DoD space and weapons systems, devices and circuits fabricated from III–V semiconductor compounds offer significant advantages over silicon-based technology. However, the uncertainty in single-event-effect (SEE) response of compound semiconductor technologies forces the use of empirically-based hardening techniques with penalties in increased ...

  7. Characterization and Mitigation of Radiation Effects in Quantum Dot Based Nanotechnologies

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA082001

    For applications in DoD satellite systems, devices based on novel nanomaterials offer significant advantages over traditional technologies in terms of light-weight and efficiency. Examples of such novel devices include quantum dot (QD) based solar cells, photodetectors, radars and sensors. However, the response of these devices to radiation effects is not well understood, and radiation effects mod ...
