Advanced Computational Methods for Study of Electromagnetic CompatibilitySBC: MATHEMATICAL SYSTEMS & SOLUTIONS INC Topic: AF09BT13
The present text proposes development of efficient, accurate and rapidly-convergent algorithms for the simulation of propagation and scattering of electromagnetic fields within and around structures that (i) Consist of complex combinations of penetrable materials as well as perfect and imperfect conductors, and, (ii) Possess complex geometrical characteristics, including open surfaces, metallic c ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
Modeling Auditory Pattern Recognition and Learning with Gradient Frequency Neural Oscillator NetworksSBC: OSCILLOSCAPE, LLC Topic: AF09BT12
This Small Business Technology Transfer research project addresses the perception and learning of complex sound patterns within complex auditory scenes. The objective is to model auditory signal processing, pattern recognition and learning in the human auditory system. Our novel approach simulates the nonlinear signal processing that has been observed in auditory physiology. By mimicking functiona ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
Efficient Propagators and Gravity Models in non-Cartesian Coordinate SystemsSBC: NUMERICA CORP Topic: AF09BT02
Accurate and timely surveillance of objects in the near-Earth space environment is becoming increasingly critical to US national security. One of the main difficulties in this domain is efficiently and accurately modeling trajectories of the vast number of objects in orbit around the Earth. The orbital trajectory of a single object is typically modeled as a second-order system of equations which ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
Simulation Tool for Modeling Weakly Ionized PlasmaSBC: TECH-X CORPORATION Topic: AF09BT10
We propose to develop a commercial weakly ionized plasma modeling capability based off of Tech-X’s high energy density plasma fluid code TxFluids. The new additions will be able to be used to model hypersonic vehicle physics including shock waves, plasma chemistry and innovative techniques for blackout mitigation and hypersonic vehicle control through the application of electric and/or magnetic ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
Near-field Fiber Laser Comb Spectroscopy (NFLCS)SBC: POLARONYX INC Topic: AF08BT30

Signal Processing with Memristive DevicesSBC: Microxact, Inc. Topic: AF09BT23
To streamline data processing in, e.g., hyperspectral imaging, new massively parallel data processing circuits are needed. The team of MicroXact Inc. and UC Santa Barbara propose to develop circuits based on completely novel computing paradigm, which could be extremely efficient (i.e. dense, relatively inexpensive, and consume very little power) for massively parallel signal processing. We offer t ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
Plasmonics for Solar Energy GenerationSBC: Microxact, Inc. Topic: AF09BT39
Photovoltaics, while promising clean and reliable energy source, is not yet compatible with fossil energy for most applications. Organic-based solar cells have potential to reduce the cost of solar energy due to low-cost active materials, high-throughput reel-to-reel deposition technologies, low-temperature processing and application versatility. Currently organic photovoltaics (OPV) cannot commer ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
Metal-blacks for plasmonic enhancement of solar-cell efficiencySBC: Physical Engineering Corporation Topic: AF09BT39
This Phase I STTR proposal will demonstrate nanostructured “metal-black” coatings to enhance absorption by thin film solar cells. The problem is that silicon has low absorption due to its indirect gap. The opportunity is that nano-scale metallic scattering centers increase the effective optical path length and enhance the solar electric-field strength in thin-film solar cells, leading to more ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
