  1. High Performance Liquid Crystals for Infrared Applications

    SBC: KENT OPTRONICS INC            Topic: AF05T029

    This STTR Phase I proposal focuses on a liquid crystal material research to improve the performance of new classes of electro-optically active and spectrally responsive cholesteric liquid crystals (CLCs) with tunable selective reflection properties and with variable yet controllable selective reflection bandwidth. The technical objectives are to design and synthesize high figure-of-merit (FOM) li ...

  2. Computational Prediction of Kinetic Rate Constants


    The proposal describes a solution offered by SARA, Inc and its partner, University of Minnesota in response to the problem of computational prediction of kinetic rate constants. The proposed solution is based on the POLYRATE program developed by computational chemistry group at the University of Minnesota. The program accepts electronic structure file as input and evaluates the rate constants usin ...

  3. Nonlinear Enhancement of Visual Target Detection

    SBC: Applied Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF05T021

    Object identification, quantification and localization are key goals in both military target detection and quantitative medical imaging. As in medical imaging, military images are often difficult to interpret due to noise, spatial resolution limits, changing background conditions and uncertainty about the materials being imaged. We propose to vastly improve the results from hyperspectral imaging s ...

  4. Novel Method for Fabricating Carbon Nanofiber Toughened Silicon Carbide Composites

    SBC: Applied Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF05T023

    Carbon nanotube-reinforced ceramics are a promising class of materials that are plagued by extreme processing conditions which compromise the nanotubes, thereby inhibiting their ability to positively impact the ceramic composite. Applied Sciences, Inc. (ASI) proposes an innovative solution to this problem. Our process exploits the unique morphology of low-cost carbon nanofibers, upon which the ce ...
