SBC: Lake Shore Cryotronics, Inc. Topic: AF12BT08
ABSTRACT: Terahertz (THz) spectroscopies offer unmatched non-contact probing of low-energy excitations underlying electronic transport and magnetism in a wide range of novel materials. To-date, expensive and complex THz Time Domain Spectroscopy (THz-TDS) systems are the most common THz source used in these studies. Lower cost, continuous wave (CW-THz) spectroscopy systems can offer comparable per ...STTR Phase I 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Aegis Technologies Group, LLC, The Topic: AF09BT33
Recent advances in THz-source stability, power and practicality have opened the door for active THz imaging in both commercial and military settings. AEgis is teaming with U Buffalo to develop a THz detection device that utilizes classical rectification effects in semiconductor point contacts (SPCs) to achieve response in the 1 to 10 THz range and is capable of operating at temperatures over 150 K ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: MV Innovative Technologies LLC (DBA: Opt Topic: AF17AT008
This project offers a novel polychromatic target-in-the-loop atmospheric sensing (TILAS) concept for in situ characterization of the combined effects of atmospheric turbulence, refractivity, transmittance, and optical path difference (piston phase) over long-range, low elevation angle atmospheric paths. The proposed concept allows practical implementation of a modular compact TILAS atmospheric sen ...STTR Phase I 2017 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: ITN ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC. Topic: AF09BT33
This Small Business Technology Transfer Research phase I program will develop a new class of uncooled THz detectors for the 1-10THz band with a novel design using surface plasmon resonant cavities with integrated metal-insulator-metal tunneling diodes as the detecting element. Tunneling diodes provide ultrafast broadband response, potentially into the visible (300THz), but demonstrated performanc ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: ITN ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC. Topic: AF09BT39
This Small Business Technology Transfer Research phase I program will develop a new class of surface plasmon enhanced photovoltaic devices that exhibit increased current collection. Photon management, the manipulation of the incident optical field to increase the probability that a photon is absorbed in the active region of the cell, is critical to the development of next generation thin film sol ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: MATRIX RESEARCH INC Topic: AF12BT05
ABSTRACT: It is well known that wind turbine clutter (WTC) presents a significant challenge to detecting targets in civilian and military applications. The large radar cross section (RCS) of wind turbines, combined with their significant range of Doppler spread, make traditional clutter mitigation techniques effectively useless. The objective of this Phase I effort is to develop a physically con ...STTR Phase I 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Lateral Unbounded Software LLC Topic: AF17AT017
Computational design is encountering barriers due to chaotic dynamics. The characteristic unpredictability, aperiodicity, and sensitivity to initial conditions in chaotic dynamics requires computationally costly time-dependent analysis. Computationally costly analysis precludes sampling-based optimization, indicating that chaotic systems would significantly benefit from gradient-based optimization ...STTR Phase I 2017 Department of DefenseAir Force

The US Air Force requires quantitative spatially and temporally resolved measurements of key rate-controlling intermediate species in reacting flows at elevated pressures for Air Force advanced propulsion systems. Such information is critically needed fo...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: NUMERICA CORPORATION Topic: AF09BT09
A mathematical framework for detection and classification of weak, distributed patterns on computer networks is proposed. The framework will provide rigorous methods for understanding performance bounds and optimality of intrusion detection methods, while also providing concrete and implementable algorithms. The algorithms will find immediate application in cyber-security efforts, as well as mor ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
