  4. Optical Line Filter and Spectrometer based Upon Two-Photon Absorption for Doppler LIDAR at 1.053 um

    SBC: ESPYLUX LLC            Topic: S1

    A receiver system for use in LIDAR consisting of an optical filter and optical spectrometer based upon two-photon absorption is proposed.  The filter and spectrometer both use dispersion from excited state transitions of atomic rubidium  to create a birefringent medium. The birefringent medium of the optical filter rotates the polarization of light so that it is transmitted through cross ...

  5. Superconducting Coils for Small Nuclear Fusion Rocket Engines


    This proposal focuses on the superconducting coils subsystem, a critical subsystem for the PFRC reactor and Direct Fusion Drive and other fusion and electric propulsion technologies. Our strategy for PFRC has evolved since our Phase I proposal, and we now propose a hybrid magnet approach: a combination of so-called “dry” conduction-cooled low-temperature (LTS) superconductor magnets an ...

  7. Performance Enhancement of Deicing Systems with the Use of an Anti-Ice Nano-Coating

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: A109

    The proposed program addresses NASA's need for a new generation of icing mitigation technology for manned and unmanned vehicles. The state of the art active de-icing method on leading edges involves either an electrical, pneumatic or vibration induced debonding of accumulated ice. There is a need for an anti-ice coating that functions synergistically with active de-icing methods. The advantages ar ...

  8. Space Flight of Ultra-Low Noise Quad Photoreceivers for Laser Interferometric Gravity Wave Detection

    SBC: DISCOVERY SEMICONDUCTORS, INC.            Topic: H801

    Ultra-low capacitance quadrant InGaAs photoreceivers have been developed as part of the following successful NASA SBIR contracts by Discovery Semiconductors (DSC): (1) Phase I SBIR Contract # NNX09CD48P (01/22/09 to 07/21/09); and (2) Phase II SBIR Contract # NNX10CA59C (02/25/10 to 02/24/12). The photoreceivers are based on low capacitance per unit area photodiodes, combined with a commercial op ...

  9. Optically Assisted Analog-to-Digital Converter for Next Generation "Software Defined" Radios

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: H904

    Next generation commercial and DoD communication systems must meet the demand for higher data rates and the growing number of users in an increasingly over-taxed spectrum. Reconfigurable digital phased arrays that implement high speed ADCs promise to help provide a solution; however, creating broadband high speed high ENOB DACs remains a challenging bottleneck of the system. MaXentric's solution w ...

  10. 2 Micron Wavelength Coherent Universal LIDAR With Adjustable Resolution and Sensitivity

    SBC: DISCOVERY SEMICONDUCTORS, INC.            Topic: S101

    Discovery Semiconductors and Lockheed Martin Advanced Technology Laboratories have teamed together to design a Universal LIDAR system that will work for NASA's diverse range of applications. We propose a fiber-based, self-heterodyne LIDAR, at 2050 nm wavelength, whose transmitted optical signal is modulated by a 10 Gbps programmable pseudo-random (PRN) sequence. The LIDAR's resolution and sensit ...
