  1. Self-stabilized monolithic solid state single frequency laser

    SBC: OPTIGRATE CORPORATION            Topic: SB12A001

    The general objective of this proposal is to design a self-stabilized monolithic single frequency solid state laser. The main advantage of the approach is based on the integration of a laser cavity within active laser material - Nd-doped photo-thermo-refractive (PTR) glass, which allows constructing narrow line unidirectional, environmental insensitive laser. This glass possesses both properties o ...

  3. Plasma Simulation from Two-Fluid to MHD in Complex Geometry Using Local Relaxation

    SBC: NumerEx            Topic: AF11BT08

    ABSTRACT: Multidimensional simulation of plasmas will be critical to the design of high voltage and high energy density devices over coming decades. Individual fluid simulation codes are presently limited to one or perhaps two of three plasma models: the higher densities and longer time scales of magnetohydrodynamics (MHD), the lower densities and shorter time scales of extended MHD (XMHD), and ...

  6. Nublu: Assured Information Sharing in Clouds

    SBC: MODUS OPERANDI, INC.            Topic: AF11BT30

    ABSTRACT: We propose to develop an assured information sharing framework for cloud-based systems that leverages our ongoing work in the areas of policy-based usage management and semantic interoperability. The development of this framework will involve the creation of a novel approach to information sharing that treats security as a commodity that can be dynamically provisioned within the cloud, ...

  8. Computing With Chaos

    SBC: NUGENT, MICHAEL ALEXANDER            Topic: N12AT013

    We propose a self-organized chaotic attractor based CMOS/Memristor circuit framework called Self-Evolvable-Logic-Fabric (SELF) for autonomous motor control. We propose to demonstrate SELF's ability to spontaneously evolve algorithmic pathways to control a robotic arm to catch a ball utilizing visual and proprioceptive feedback while varying parameters that increase the complexity and difficul ...

  9. Expendable Acoustic Source for AUV Based Geoacoustic and Geotechnical Survey Operations

    SBC: ANALYSIS DESIGN & DIAGNOSTICS INC            Topic: N12AT017

    Our team proposes a unique expendable acoustic source comprised of flexural disc technology in a close packed arrangement that allows for a reduction in resonant frequency and an increase in useful bandwidth. This array will be designed to couple as much energy as possible into the bottom sediments, while coupling as little energy as possible directly into the surrounding water column. This is a d ...

  10. High-Power Semiconductor Laser in the 3.0- to 3.5-um Spectral Range

    SBC: SDPHOTONICS LLC            Topic: N12AT003

    High quality laser materials based on InP, InGaAs, InAlGaAs, and InAs are proposed to develope high power 3 to 3.5 m diode lasers. An adiabatically broadened amplifying section is proposed to reach high power with high beam quality. The active material uses strained layer epitaxy to rely only on high quality laser materials that can be grown by molecular beam epitaxy, and with high quality on InP ...
