  1. 2-Dimensional, Microchannel Plate, Anti-scatter Focusing Grid for Superior X-ray Imaging Instruments

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation (AASC) proposes to develop a new class of x-ray imaging instruments based on a 2-dimensional, square-pore microchannel plate technology. This square-pore technology could lead to higher sensitivity x-ray telescopes in astronomy, wide field of view sensors for the BMDO mission and to superior anti-scatter grids to enhance contrast and resolution in mammography s ...

  2. Compact, High Capacity Parallel Optical Memories

    SBC: Accuwave Corp.            Topic: N/A

    In this proposed SBIR program, Accuwave will investigate and demonstrate architectures for compact hologrpahic storage using materials and system innovations to reduce complexity and improve performance. Crosstalk, data formatting, input/output interfaces, and other relevant parameters will be characterized. Both wavelength and angle multiplexing, as well as its combination, will be used to prov ...

  3. Photorefractive Optical Limiter for Sensor Protection

    SBC: Accuwave Corp.            Topic: N/A

    Accuwave Corporation will demonstrate an optical limiter for sensor protection using two-beam coupling in a photorefrac-tive material to attenuate coherent input light while leaving incoherent light unaffected. Methods for decreasing response time in BaTiO3, SBN, and similar materials will be investigated. A laboratory breadboard telescope system with an integrated limiting element will be demonst ...

  5. Revolutionary Epoxy Technology for High Tg MCM Substrates

    SBC: Aguila Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The goal of this program is the development of low cost, low viscosity and high performance epoxy resins cured by a novel method, for use in multichip modules (MCM) substrates. The revolutionary epoxy resin, invented by the principle investigator of this proposal, has very high temperature performance (Tg of 280_C to 320_C), low dielectric constant (less than 3), and outstanding moisture resistanc ...

  6. All Digital Imager with per Pixel on focal Plan Analog to Digital Conversion and Digital Display

    SBC: AMAIN ELECTRONICS CO., INC.            Topic: N/A

    As the size of staring sensors increase, the bandwidth to move data off the focal plane increases proportional to the number of pixels in the array. For analog focal planes, increased bandwidth also means increased noise. Readout noise limited systems wili be less sensitive, detector noise limited systems may become readout limited at the higher bandwidths. Power dissipation wili also increase wit ...

  7. Production of Semiconductor Grade Crystals from Recovered GaAs and InP Manufacturing Wastes


    On-site recovery of constituent materials from compound semiconductor waste streams presents an opportunity for reduction of hazardous material waste and cost of manufacturing. UDRI has developed a low-cost process for recovering gallium and arsenic from the production of gallium arsenide where the primary contaminant is the other element of the binary compound. This method can be applied to other ...

  8. Add/Drop Filters for High Speed Communications Using Wavelength Division Multiplexing

    SBC: Arroyo Optics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Arroyo Optics has developed an add/drop filter for wavelength division multiplexing which is expected to exhibit the following exemplary characteristics: high routing efficiency (99%), zero loss (< 0.1 dB), high rejection (< -50 dB), narrow bandwidth (1 nm) and low crosstalk (< -30 dB). This device paves the way for developing an entirely new class of optical components critical to high speed WDM ...

  10. A Pulsed-Power Driven Krypton Soft X-Ray Laser Based on A Stabilized Z-Pinch Load

    SBC: BERKELEY RESEARCH ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    Pulsed power is known to be the most efficient way of converting stored electrical energy into plasma thermal energy. Such plasma thermal energy would be available for pumping a soft x-ray laser. High-gain 3s - 3p transitions in neon-like krypton are very attractive for lasing (high rate of collisional excitation to the upper lasing level, fast decay of lower lasing level). Existsng pulsed-power d ...
