  1. LWIR Compressive Hyperspectral Imager

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: 27c

    Current hyperspectral imaging systems are large, expensive, and produce a large quantity of superfluous data that is typically compressed as part of detection and analysis. A hyperspectral imaging solution based on compressive sensing concepts is sought with utility to remote monitoring of activities associated with nuclear and radiological material production. A highly sensitive yet low-cost and ...

  2. Thyratron Replacement

    SBC: DIVERSIFIED TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 31b

    Although the thyratrons used in klystron modulators for large accelerator projects function properly, they need replacement every 10,000 hours at a cost of $13,000 each, plus labor. Furthermore, periodic maintenance is required to adjust their reservoir heater voltage over the thyratron lifetime. Thyratrons are also becoming obsolete as fewer and fewer vendors are selling them in response to decre ...

  3. Fiber based seed laser for ultrafast CO2 laser systems

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: 32a

    A fiber based high performance 10-micron femtosecond seed laser is an ideal front end of ultrafast CO2 laser systems, which requires a near IR mode-locked fiber laser and a high energy pulsed pump fiber laser synchronized with the mode-locked fiber laser for frequency conversion and power amplification. Efficiently generating stable and reliable mode-locked near IR fiber laser is the primary issue ...

  5. Further Development of Large-Area Micro-channel Plates for a Broad Range of Commercial Applications

    SBC: INCOM, INC.            Topic: 35b

    This program will build on the work of the Large-Area Psec Photo-Detector (LAPPD) program, under which a transformative design for low-cost large-area photodetectors that use 8 square micro-channel plates (MCPs) is being developed. The technology will be extended by reducing the pore size of these large-area MCPs from 20 m to 10 m for commercial and scientific applications requiring improved spac ...

  7. High Thermal Conductivity, Radiation Resistant Adhesive for High Energy Physics

    SBC: SURMET, CORP.            Topic: 35f

    The proposal addresses a demand in High-Energy Physics for radiation-insensitive high-thermal-conductivity adhesives. Adhesives play an active role in keeping electronic devices cool by conducting heat away, thus increasing reliability. A radiation-tolerant adhesive exhibiting high thermal conductivity is strongly desired. Surmet proposes to develop a novel adhesive formulation that uses Aluminum ...

  9. Solid-State Neutron Detectors with Integrated Electronics for Nuclear Physics

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 39b

    At present, detectors of fast neutrons use liquid scintillators liquid scintillators can be dangerous to handle due to their low flash points and bulkiness, and the readout of the liquid scintillator by large PMTs limits the available position resolution and ability to operate in high magnetic fields. Large arrays of detectors are hampered by the large cost of many channels of electronics and the ...

  10. LED-assisted ignition for lean-burn IC engines

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 07e

    We plan to propose an LED-assisted ignition technique for lean-burn internal combustion engines. It has been known for decades that lean fuel/air mixture is difficult to ignite than the stoichiometric mixture. The proposed technology is based on enhancing chemical reactivity of fuel-air mixtures by non-equilibrium optical pumping of reaction intermediates from ground state to the electronic excite ...
