  1. Fused silica ion trap chip with efficient optical collection system for timekeeping, sensing, and emulation

    SBC: TRANSLUME, INC.            Topic: AF10BT17

    ABSTRACT: We will design, fabricate and test a quantum processing unit (QPU) based on a symmetric ion trap chip. The trap will provide trapping depth similar to that obtain with macrosize Paul traps. In addition to the ion trap, this chip will incorporate integrated optical systems which will deliver the light fields required by the elementary quantum processing unit (or quantum sensing unit). ...

  2. Quantum Dot Nanocomposite Based Novel Thermoelectric Materials

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT26

    ABSTRACT: Energy harvesting has emerged as a critical need for many current and future Air Force missions to enable their long endurance requirements. Traditional approaches have focused on harvesting solar and vibration (i.e., via the use of piezoelectric materials) energy. More recently, substantial interest has developed in harvesting energy derived from thermal gradients (e.g., due to solar r ...

  3. Volume Charge Distribution Measurement in Thin Dielectrics

    SBC: COMMET LLC            Topic: AF11BT20

    ABSTRACT: An instrument measuring volume charges in thin dielectric films is proposed. The instrument utilizes an enhanced Pulsed Electro-Acoustic (PEA) technique and delivers submicron spatial and at least 0.1 micro-Coulombs per cubic centimeter resolutions of the charge density. Traditional PEA instruments suffer from significant signal loss due to acoustic mismatches between the testing materi ...

  6. Modeling and Simulation for Design, Development, Testing and Evaluation of Autonomous Multi-Agent Models

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT14

    ABSTRACT: The rapid continued development of unmanned air systems (UAS) is enabling new mission types, in-creased mission effects, and increased airman safety. However, these advances also present numerous challenges to airman-machine interaction, tactics development, and defense. The rapid development pace has produced a situation where new technologies are outpacing the knowledge of how best to ...
