The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Visible Wavelength Negative Index Materials

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A05T015

    Recent development in negative index materials has triggered great interest in imaging through a flat lens, and perhaps even ¡ superlensing¡": exceeding the classical diffraction limit by capturing both evanescent and propagating wave components. Though d

  6. Delamination Resistant Coating System for Zinc Sulfide Domes and Windows, Utilizing a Compliant Layer.

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N06T014

    Zinc Sulfide (ZnS) is the most practical material for infrared transparent domes and windows operating at long wave infrared wavelength. Hard outer coatings have been applied to ZnS to protect it from rain and sand erosion. Theoretical analysis of multi-layer coatings suggests that a compliant layer between the hard outer coating and the ZnS surface may improve resistance to rain impact damage. In ...
