SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated Topic: AF09BT03
The electron transferring unit of enzymes – apoenzyme and cofactor are deeply buried inside its protein structure, therefore efficient electronic communication between the electrode and the biocatalytic enzyme is inefficient. The development of a reproducible approach that allows efficient electronic connection between enzymes and electrodes would meet the major technical needs in the developmen ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: AF09BT03
Our objective is to develop advanced mediator architectures for efficient electron transfer in enzymatic fuel cells (EFCs) for low power systems. The proposed EFC will leverage ongoing research at both CFDRC and Michigan State University to provide a fully-integrated lightweight, low-cost, manufacturable, and renewable power supply, for various military and civilian applications. EFC systems offer ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: VOSS SCIENTIFIC LLC Topic: AF09BT08
Military applications for the use of directed electromagnetic energy, which include high power microwave (HPM), seek to disrupt electronic systems by exploiting non-linearity in semiconductors. While current mode second breakdown is a thermal non-linearity often exploited, it has been demonstrated that a broad class of semiconductors have more subtle non-linearities that can be utilized to induce ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
Theoretical Innovations in Combining Analytical, Experimental, and Computational Combustion Stability AnalysisSBC: HYPERCOMP INC Topic: AF09BT38
Combustion stability is an important consideration in the design of liquid rocket engines. While fundamental modes of unstable operation in simple geometries are easily identified using analytical methods, recent times have seen these methods greatly expand in scope, applied in semi-numerical format to increasingly complex geometries and flow situations. Much remains to be explored in understandin ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: NEXGENSEMI CORPORATION Topic: AF09BT35
Graphene has become one of the most promising new materials to form semiconductor devices and microelectronic interconnects. NexGenSemi Corporation in collaboration with Sandia National Labs will develop a “Patterned Graphene Interconnect (PGI) and material modification for nanofabrication of transistor devices. This process resolution will dip deep down into the state-of-the-art technology no ...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: Tanner Research, Inc. Topic: AF09BT39
The Air Force has a strategic need for a fuel source that is renewable (and which does not rely on foreign petroleum sources). Several approaches to a renewable fuel source have been investigated; with “artificial photosynthesis” being one example. At its core, the photosynthesis reaction is a photoinduced charge separation reaction with light being concentrated by antenna complexes onto a c ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: MATHSENSE ANALYTICS Topic: AF09BT21
The key to making quantum key distribution practical (especially for free-space applications) is to be able to use weak laser pulses (WLP) instead of single photons, while at the same time making sure that any third party wanting to avoid detection and mount an eavesdropping attack is restricted to using beam-splitting rather than photon-number splitting (PNS). In this effort, we propose a novel s ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Physical Engineering Corporation Topic: AF09BT39
This Phase I STTR proposal will demonstrate nanostructured “metal-black” coatings to enhance absorption by thin film solar cells. The problem is that silicon has low absorption due to its indirect gap. The opportunity is that nano-scale metallic scattering centers increase the effective optical path length and enhance the solar electric-field strength in thin-film solar cells, leading to more ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: AF09BT20
Higher efficiency solar cells are needed to reduce solar array mass, volume, and cost for Air Force space missions. Intermediate-band quantum-dot (QD) solar cells can yield dramatically higher efficiencies than current multi-junction (MJ) technologies. However, several issues must be addressed to demonstrate manufacturable, high efficiency devices. CFDRC aims to develop: 1) High-efficiency, ligh ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
