SBC: Plasmonics Inc. Topic: AF10BT30
ABSTRACT: Under the first phase of the program, Plasmonics Inc. and Sandia National Laboratories investigated a range of surfaces that yield non-Lambertian emission profiles in the thermal infrared. The second phase of this program will further maturate the designs developed in the first phase of the program. With the vast majority of the analytical work complete, focus in the second phase will b ...STTR Phase II 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: OPTOMEC, INC. Topic: AF09BT26
ABSTRACT: The goal of this phase II proposal is to develop a commercial platform for printing high performance, single-walled carbon nanotube transistor circuits on large-area plastic substrate. Automated processes will be developed for the room temperature printing of metal, semiconductor, and dielectric materials with micron-scale alignment accuracy. The transistor performance will be enha ...STTR Phase II 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Sensormetrix, INC Topic: AF10BT30
ABSTRACT: It is proposed to demonstrate a surface fabricated using thin film metamaterial designs that can exhibit rapidly varying angular as well as spectral emissivity profiles. The technology enables specification of desired angular pattern at design time, and can be fabricated in large area formats. BENEFIT: The proposed technology will allow directional control of thermal radiation in app ...STTR Phase II 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: ThermoDynamic Films LLC Topic: AF10BT02
ABSTRACT: Optical refrigeration is currently the only demonstrated all-solid-state cryocooling technology. Optical cryocoolers are devices that use laser light to cool small crystal or glass cooling elements. The cooling element absorbs the laser light and reradiates it at higher energy, an example of anti-Stokes fluorescence. The difference between the energy of the outgoing and incoming light c ...STTR Phase II 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Chemat Technology, Inc. Topic: AF10BT11
ABSTRACT: The emerging technology of protean glass/ceramic materials, where RF and DC electrical properties can be imbued in the material volume by laser excitation and subsequent material transformation processes has great potential especially for the military applications. In this Phase I research, Chemat has successfully prepared a protean glass which is photosensitive. A pattern such as a 3 ...STTR Phase II 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
Photostructural Glass Ceramics and Optimized Processing for Laser Initiated 3D Conductors (PhotoCon)SBC: OBALON, LLC Topic: AF10BT11
ABSTRACT: In this STTR effort a small business company Obalon LLC is teaming up with industry leader Aerospace Corporation for development of novel photostructural glass ceramic composition (PhotoCon) with capability of laser induced 3D conductor patterning inside the bulk material. The development fully utilizes available infrastructure and team's expertise for commercial glass ceramics pro ...STTR Phase II 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
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 ...STTR Phase II 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Atherton Quantum Insight, LLC Topic: AF10BT21
ABSTRACT: In this project, we assemble leading commercial and academic groups within nano-scale device simulation community to overcome the modeling bottleneck by implementing new high performance modeling methods for simulating the electrical properties of nano-scale devices. The majority of the tools will be integrated into an already existing and very user friendly commercial platform for simu ...STTR Phase II 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Prime Photonics, LC Topic: AF10BT22
ABSTRACT: For this Phase II STTR effort, Prime Photonics and Virginia Tech propose to demonstrate a fully packaged hybrid photovoltaic/magneto-thermoelectric (PV/MTG) panel with improved energy conversion efficiency designed for solar powered air vehicles. In addition to acting as an active thermal backplane for the PV, the MTG is designed to maximize thermal to electrical conversion from the av ...STTR Phase II 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
