  1. Portable Microwave Cold Atomic Clock

    SBC: Coldquanta, Inc.            Topic: SB141004

    ColdQuanta proposes to develop a MOT-based laser-cooled microwave atom clock prototype having a stability of at least 1E-12 for a 1 s integration time that can serve as a primary atomic frequency. Phase I focuses on the key challenges facing the development of a cold atom physics package commensurate with 1 liter total system size. We will design, build, and demonstrate an ultrahigh vacuum cell ...

  2. Portable Microwave Cold Atomic Clock

    SBC: Spectra Dynamics Inc            Topic: SB141004

    We present a technical approach for the design of a small, portable, microwave cold atomic clock that meets the frequency stability requirement of less than 1X10-12 at 1 s averaging time and less than 5X10-15 for an averaging time of 1 day in the following size weight and power requirements (SWaP). Our approach is based on a laser-cooled atom microwave fountain clock that uses precision microwave ...

  3. Automated Approaches to Cellular Engineering and Biomanufacturing

    SBC: Covitect Inc.            Topic: ST12B003

    Genome-scale predictable cellular design and engineering of biomanufacturing systems is the overarching goal of DARPAs Living Foundries and 1000 Molecules programs and, if realized, will enable rapid engineering of living systems for a broad range of applications in biotechnology and pharmacology. However, constructing living cells with designed genome is an arduous task that is severely limited ...

  4. Electronic Component Fingerprinting to Determine Manufacturing Origin

    SBC: Clearmark Systems, LLC            Topic: SB133003

    This program will develop an automated, computer-assisted method for tracking a semiconductor device back to the fab that produced it. To accomplish this goal, we will measure characteristics of the device that are consistent within a given fab toolset, and compare the results to known authentic parts in order to establish a match. This technique will for the first time enable a simple inspectio ...

  5. High Performance Microminiature Free Space Shutter for CAMS

    SBC: Coldquanta, Inc.            Topic: SB142005

    We propose to develop a MEMS-based optical shutter system with transition times faster than 10 microseconds and attenuations of at least 70 dB.The device will be designed for wavelengths between 780 and 894 nm, as needed for laser systems for cold-atom microsystems.Specific design features and techniques will be incorporated to trap and prevent the passage of stray light through the system.

  6. Adaptive Recognition-Primed Emergency Support (ARES) System

    SBC: ALPHATRAC, INC.            Topic: SB072006

    AlphaTRAC proposes to continue the research and development effort of the AlphaACT? SBIR Phase I Project. We will develop human dynamics (non-verbal) cues and social interaction-based courses of action and incorporate them into a customized version of the AlphaACT decision training platform. The new technology will be called AlphaACT SI.

  7. Flexible Gas Diffusion Barriers Using ALD/MLD Multilayers and Roll-to-Roll Processing

    SBC: ALD NANOSOLUTIONS, INC            Topic: SB101001

    ALD NanoSolutions, Inc. will develop flexible gas diffusion barriers for polymer substrates that will enable flexible electronic devices such as flexible OLEDs and thin film photovoltaics. The multilayer barriers films will consist of nanometer thick, flexible inorganic and organic layers formed using atomic layer deposition (ALD) and molecular layer deposition (MLD) techniques. Al2O3 ALD films ...

  8. Development of New Adaptive Polymer Lenses

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: SB092014

    Boulder Nonlinear Systems proposes to develop significantly improved adaptive polymer lenses (APLs) for use in a variety of imaging systems. APLs will be fabricated and characterized for focal length and optical properties. Electro-mechanical actuators will be investigated. An optical zoom system using the APLs developed on this contract will also be designed and included as part of the final r ...

  9. Novel Non-mechanical Liquid Crystal based Foveated Imaging System

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: SB093008

    A novel foveated imaging technology is proposed, suitable for integration into an urban surveillance system. The proposed technology has no moving parts has low power requirements and requires a single imaging camera. The technology exploits the beam steering capabilities of liquid crystal polarization gratings (LCPGs) which diffract light only into the m=±1 orders according to the handedness of ...

  10. Graded AlN/Al2O3 Precursor and Methods to Passivate Micro-Channel Coolers

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: SB101014

    Commercially available micro-channel coolers for high power laser diodes utilize copper's high thermal conductivity and ability to be micro-machined. Unfortunately, these coolers suffer from flow erosion and corrosion by the cooling fluid. Copper's ability to conduct electrical charge furthers the corrosion process and requires the use of deionized water as the heat carrying fluid. These factors i ...
