  1. An Elevated-Temperature Nanobalance Based on Piezoelectric Shear Mode Resonators (quartz, gallium phosphate, and langasite)

    SBC: Masscal Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The work proposed will provide a demonstration of feasibility and specific design recommendations for building an elevated-temperature resonating crystal balance with nanogram sensitivity. The approach will build upon existing technology commercialized by Masscal for operating a QCM in a temperature-controlled calorimeter. Precise temperature control and new types of crystal sensors will be used t ...

  2. Optimized Soft Magnetic Electrodes for Ultra-Sensitive Magnetic Tunnel Junction Field Sensors

    SBC: Micro Magnetics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR project aims to develop a new class of low-field magnetic sensors based on magnetic tunnel junctions with magnesium oxide (MgO) tunnel barriers. The phase 1 effort aims to maximize the high-frequency sensitivity of the MgO-MTJ sensor devices by optimizing the magnetic characteristics of the free electrode. By using new and novel combinations of magnetic materials, in conjunction with pro ...

  5. A Novel Internet-based Radar Digital Receiver and Processor (iRAP) System

    SBC: REMOTE SENSING SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: 835

    Dozens of popular radar systems are installed on all sizes of aircraft, however the fundamental capabilities of these radars can be defined using only a few parameters such as the pulse width, pulse rate and scan rate. Each radar has its unique interface to operator controls and displays but the input controls and outputs are fundamentally the same. This proposed research effort seeks to utilize ...

  7. Solid-state Broadly-tunable Milliwatt CW THz Source on Intra-cavity Frequency Conversion

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal provides a breakthrough solution to realize a compact broadly-tunable THz local-oscillator, whose tuning range covers 0.8-1.2 THz with flat output power in excess of 200 uW. The innovation is based on high efficiency intra-cavity difference frequency generation. A dual cavity laser is designed to generate two separate frequency lasers, which share an EO crystal inside the cavity for ...
