  3. Miniature Quantum Gas System based on an Atom Chip with Integrated Optical Micro-Cavity

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF10BT17

    ABSTRACT: In the proposed work, Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) will team with MIT to develop a chip-based spin-squeezed atomic clock with a fractional frequency stability below the standard quantum limit. This will be accomplished by the development and fabrication of an atom chip that includes an integrated optical micro-cavity for confinement, imaging, and readout of the trapped cold atomic ense ...

  4. Customized Application Security Via Process Virtualization

    SBC: Zephyr Software, LLC            Topic: AF10BT18

    ABSTRACT: Military and other software systems often face the need to accept untrusted software components into the system. The proposed research will enable secure integration of untrusted software components by (1) isolating these components using application-level (per-process) virtualization; (2) assisting the customer in constructing a security policy tailored to each untrusted component; (3) ...

  5. Security through Component-based Isolation Framework (SCIF)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT18

    ABSTRACT: Networked PCs are critical to the success of data-based missions, and the complex software they execute is both the source of their power and their prime area of vulnerability. Applications and services are often composed of multiple software components developed by different vendors or open source communities, who may in turn incorporate components developed by another tier of vendors. ...

  6. Organic&Hybrid Organic/Inorganic-Based Graded-Index/Layered Optical Coatings by Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD)

    SBC: INTER MATERIALS, LLC            Topic: AF10BT19

    ABSTRACT: One of the Air Force main interests is to improve the antireflective (AR) optical properties of polycarbonate by exploring new coating materials or coating techniques to eliminate delamination and stress cracks due to the mismatch in the coefficient of thermal expansion between the coatings and the polymer substrates. SwRI and INTER Materials are in a unique position to assist the Air F ...

  7. High-Power, Room-Temperature Interband Cascade Laser Optimization

    SBC: Maxion Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT20

    ABSTRACT: Maxion Technologies, Inc, and the State University of New York at Stony Brook propose to develop a fundamental understanding of the principles of operation of interband cascade (IC) lasers and to use that understanding to overcome present-day limitations of IC lasers and thereby design lasers that are capable of watt-level performance in the 3V4-fYm wavelength band. Our innovation is t ...

  8. Hybrid Energy Harvesting Systems

    SBC: Prime Photonics, LC            Topic: AF10BT22

    ABSTRACT: Harvesting electrical energy from thermal gradients can be a useful tool for numerous applications from large scale waste heat recovery to small scale self-powered sensors. Increasing the efficiency of traditional bulk thermoelectric generators (TEG) has been the subject of much development for 30-40 years yet efficiency improvements for commercially viable devices have been marginal. ...

  9. Polymeric Nanoparticles to Scavenge Lipophilic Molecules

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: AF10BT24

    ABSTRACT: Mycotoxins represent a class of potential chemical/biological warfare agents that pose significant acute and chronic dangers to military forces. There are no current therapeutic treatments for exposure to such toxic agents and there is an urgent need to develop a therapeutic drug which is capable of efficiently sequestering the toxic molecules and facilitating their excretion in vivo. L ...

  10. Selective Oxidation of Heterocyclic Amines

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: AF10BT25

    ABSTRACT: The ability to oxidize organic functional groups in a selective manner is of major importance in preparing compounds of interest to the Air Force and DoD. This is particularly critical in the preparation of high energy density compounds and fuels. Heterocyclic ring systems that contain both nitro and amino groups have been found to be an important class of compounds that are useful in ...
