The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY19 is not expected to be complete until April, 2020.

  1. A New Family of Optical Materials for High Power Optical Frequency Conversion

    SBC: ReyTech Corporation            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I Small Business Innovation Research project aims to develop a novel and highly versatile family of NLO crystals that may overcome the limitations of conventional technology. These materials are multifunctional and exhibit a number of unique properties that include, high nonlinearities, high damage thresholds, wide transparency range, are non-hygroscopic, and melt congruently. The uni ...

  2. Optical Random Access Memory

    SBC: TEMPLEX TECHNOLOGY CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Recent laboratory demonstrations have shown that time-domain persistent spectral holeburning memory can achieve record areal densities and density-bandwidth products. The same work has shown that many kilobits of data can be spectrally multiplexed within single spatial storage locations. These factors, taken together, open the door to an entirely new class of optical data storage, i.e., read/write ...

  3. Software for Weld Sensing and Control

    SBC: ANAMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) accounts for a significant proportion of all welding performed. Due to its relatively high speeds and metal deposition rates as well as relatively low equipment and maintenance costs, it is also the most popular process for automated, and especially robotic, welding. There are, however, problems that significantly restrict its manufacturing applications. The efforts at ...

  4. A Compact High Current Driver for Semiconductor Diode Lasers, Suitable for Laser Radar (LADR) Applications

    SBC: Garron Instrument Engineering            Topic: N/A

    A fast-pulsed (3-15ns FWHM) high-current (>500A) driver for high power diode lasers or laser arrays is proposed. Present high-current diode drivers typically use MOSFET switches to modulate the current. It is difficult to achieve very fast pulses with such devices because the inherent capacitance of the gate electrode cannot be charged and discharged quickly. Lower current, but faster diode driver ...

  5. Implementation of High-GHz-to-THz Optical Data Links

    SBC: TEMPLEX TECHNOLOGY CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Recent research has demonstrated a number of new optical processes based on the interaction of temporally structured light beams with spectrally-selective recording materials. One of these all-optical processes provides for the ultrahigh speed, temporal-waveform-controlled, spatial routing of optical beams (time-to-space conversion). Propagation of an optical data stream through an entirely passiv ...

  7. Rectifying Junctions for High Temperature, High Power Electronics

    SBC: 3c Semiconductors            Topic: N/A

    The single most important type of metal/SiC junction is the n-type, rectifying Schottky diode, because it is the voltage blocking junction in all majority carrier devices. A reliable junction of this type for n-type SiC is the key to its development for high temperature, power conditioning electronics. Phase I will demonstrate that osmium is the ideal metal for forming such junctions. Phase II wil ...

  9. On-Wafer Measurement Accuracy Assessment Tool Kit

    SBC: Cascade Microtech, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The traceability of on-wafer calibration standards has long been an issue among the microwave measurement community, and the proliferation of new calibration methods, elements, and applications only exacerbates the problem. This diversity in calibration needs has made traceability of a physical reference impractical. As a result, the NIST developed a procedure which can compare on-wafer calibrat ...
