  1. High-Voltage, High Rep-Rate UWB Source with Ferroelectric Trigger

    SBC: FARR RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose here a ferroelectric trigger for a UWB source with high voltages and operated at high rep rate. This trigger will be simpler and more reliable than existing designs, and will be implemented at lower cost. In addition, this trigger will allow operation at much higher rep rates than existing designs. Finally, the proposed switch will have a lower jitter than competing designs. During Pha ...

  2. Ultraspectral Imager

    SBC: Kestrel Corporation            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I SBIR demonstrates the underlying technology required to construct an ultraspectral imager that has the ability to spectrally resolve molecular absorption lines while simultaneously creating a two dimensional spatial mapping. The proposed instrument will have a spectral resolution that is better than 2 cm-1 and two dimensional spatial resolution that exceeds 2 milliradian. Based on Fou ...

  3. Atmospheric Turbulence Measurement System

    SBC: Kestrel Corporation            Topic: N/A

    In this Phase I SBIR a totally new, non intrusive optical method for making fundamental atmospheric turbulence measurements will be investigated. A correlation between the movement of a pair of thin beams is used to define the inner and outer scale size independent of any assumed turbulence model and to calculate the index of refraction coefficient. During the effort, extensions will be made to th ...

  4. Advanced Metal Powder Manufacture for MLCC Applications

    SBC: NANOCHEM RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Sensors, capacitors, and conducting features such as resistors and capacitors on circuit boards are produced from metal and ceramic powders 1-12 These powders are manufactured by liquid phase precipitation routes which often start with reduction of metal salts or by solid-state routes where solid reactants are mixed, heated and then milled. The solid-state processing is generally repeated several ...

  5. Formation of Hollow Microspheres by Spray Pyrolysis

    SBC: NANOCHEM RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Wireless portable communications is a multi-billion dollar industry that demands ever-faster and smaller cellular devices. The heart of theses devices is the multi-chip module (MCM) which connects the electrical communication components to another, and governs both the speed of communication signals between the components and the size of the portable device. Futrure generations of portable devices ...

  6. High Faraday Rotation Optical Waveguides for Application in Optical Circulators for Telecommunications

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The fabrication of highly efficient Faraday-active optical waveguide structures is proposed. Faraday-active waveguides are presently of great interest as their development is the critical enabling technology associated with the demonstration of an all-fiber optical circulator. Such devices, which may be characterized as multiport nonreciprocal polarization rotators, provide a means by which the te ...

  7. Embedded Sensors via Laser Engineered Net Shaping

    SBC: OPTOMEC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Optomec Design Company proposes to use Laser Engineered Net Shaping (LENSTM), a Rapid Prototyping and Manufacturing (RP&M) technology currently under development at Sandia National Laboratories (SNL), as a new method for integrating instrumentation (e.g., embedded sensors) into metal structural components. SNL has demonstrated the ability of the LENSTM technology to produce near net shape stainles ...

  8. High Performance Materials for Integrated Capacitance

    SBC: TPL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Current trends towards miniaturization and increased performance of consumer electronics are requiring higher component densities in printed circuit boards. Microprocessors speeds are currently limited by inefficiencies in interconnects between the processor and supporting discrete devices such as capacitors. Further improvements in speed will required the integration of capacitors into the PC boa ...
