Miniature and Electrically Tunable Evanescent-Mode Filters

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF99-239
Budget: 05/19/99 - 02/19/00
PI: Dr. Hua Jiang

The development of advanced communication or electronic warfare systems requires high performance miniaturized microwave filters. Miniaturized high-Q evanescent (EV) is one of the most desirable filters due to its wide stopband and small size, especially for satellite down-converter applications where a few hundred EV filters are used. Currently...

Electro-optic 2X2 Switch

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N99-081
Budget: 04/27/99 - 10/27/99
PI: Jing Zhao

High performance fiberoptic switches are in great demand for use in the information super-highway and modern defense systems. Current fiberoptic switches do not simultaneously meet the requirements of high speed, low loss, high extinction ratio, and high reliability. Based on the successful development of a state-of-the-art high speed and highly...

Dual Polarization White Light Interferometer for the Fiber-Optic Gyroscope (FOG)

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N99-066
Budget: 04/22/99 - 10/22/99
PI: Dr. Jian Xu

Stress-induced birefringent fibers are critical components for fiber sensor systems such as fiber-optic gyroscopes. An advanced technique to precisely align the principal axes of the fibers is required. Especially in fiber optic gyroscopes, the principal axes of a fiber optic coupler and sensing fiber loop should be aligned as exactly as possibl...

High Performance Retromodulator for Laser Communication

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF99-020
Budget: 03/23/99 - 04/10/00
PI: Dr. Hua Jiang

Optroceramics hold promise to produce leading edge retromodulators; a critical component for laser communications. In this program, NZ Applied Technologies proposes to demonstrate and fabricate a high performance solid-state modulator possessing high speed, polarization insensitive operation, ceramic ruggedness, low optical loss, and low fabrica...

Novel Electrical Field Sensor Based on Functional Material Coated Optical Fibers

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO99-003
Budget: 03/13/99 - 09/12/99
PI: Feng Zhou

Recently NZ Applied Technologies (NZAT) has successfully coated on standard single-mode optical fibers with resistive, piezoelectric, magnetostrictive materials such as Ti/Pt, ZnO, PZT, PLZT, FeCo and Terfenol-D. This technology opens a new area for fiber-optic sensor applications by using the functions provided by these thin film coatings. For ...

Novel Ferroelectric Thin Film IR Detector

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO95-003
Budget: 10/06/98 - 10/06/99
PI: Dr. Peter E Norris

NZ Applied Technologies (NZAT) proposes to develop a new uncooled IR detector array that potentially have ten times reduction in cost and three times increase in sensitivity over the current state-of-the-art IR detectors without crygenic cooling. The technology is based on fabricating ferroelectric thin films on silicon with integrated readout ...

Growth of New Wide Band Gap Nitride Semiconductors for Yellow-Green Band Optoelectronics and High Temperature Electronics

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Case Western Reserve University

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO98T002
Budget: 08/01/98 - 01/31/99
PI: Co-PI at CWRU, Dr. Long D

The goal of the SBIR Phase I proposal is an attempt to grow the world's first single crystalline new wide band gap nitride semiconductors by MOCVD for developing optoelectronic and optical devices in yellow to green visible band as well as lattice matched heterostructure wide band gap electronic devices. The expected direct transition, wide band...
