24 Awards Won

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Commerce
Topic: N/A
Budget: 07/31/17 - 01/30/18

ColdQuanta seeks to develop compact vapor cells designed specifically for high-accuracy RF metrology with Rydberg atoms. Sensors utilizing these vapor cells can take advantage of Rydberg atoms’ exceptional sensitivity to RF, microwave, and millimeter radiation between 1 and 1000 GHz. Featuring resolutions down to the uV/cm level, the accuracy of...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 28f
Budget: 06/12/17 - 05/11/18

Silicon lenslet arrays are a necessary component in the fourth generation of DOE-funded investigations into the nature of cosmic microwave background radiation. Studying detailed physical properties of the cosmic background allow us to understand the origins of the early universe and the future universe’s behavior. In the current generation of e...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Duke University

Agency: Army
Topic: A15A-T009
Budget: 09/19/16 - 09/18/17

We propose to develop a compact, integrated ion trap quantum system for quantum sensor, timekeeping, and computing applications. To do so, we leverage ColdQuantas expertise in miniature ultra-high vacuum (UHV) and atom chip technology and Duke Universitys expertise in microfabricated surface ion traps and quantum information processing experime...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 04a
Budget: 02/08/16 - 11/21/16

Synchrotron light sources (SLSs) produce high-intensity beams of x-rays for a variety of experiments in physics, materials science, chemistry, and medicine. New magnet designs are being explored to produce x-ray beams with greater coherence and higher intensity. To achieve these performance gains, these magnets must be made smaller, which in tur...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB152-003
Budget: 12/07/15 - 09/30/16

ColdQuanta proposes the development of compact electric field sensors that operate from 1 to 1000 GHz and feature absolute accuracy better than 1%. These devices will utilize highly excited Rydberg atoms that are exceptionally sensitive to RF, microwave, and millimeter radiation. Featuring sensitivities of a few uV/cm, the accuracy of these dev...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB142-005
Budget: 10/29/15 - 09/30/17

ColdQuanta proposes the development, fabrication, testing and demonstration of a free-space microshutter based on MEMS technology. The microshutter head will provide extinction ratios exceeding 70 dB and shutter transition times below 10 us, and it will be smaller than any other free space shutter technology currently available. The proposed shu...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Colorado Boulder

Agency: Navy
Topic: N13A-T018
Budget: 04/17/15 - 10/15/16

Our goal in this Phase II effort is to construct and test a compact, robust testbed for generating laser-cooled strontium atoms on a mobile platform. The focus of the Phase I effort was designing and fabricating an ovenized strontium source that also serves as a 2D+ MOT cell. In Phase II, we will integrate the strontium source into an all-glass-...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB141-004
Budget: 06/03/14 - 12/02/14

ColdQuanta proposes to develop a MOT-based laser-cooled microwave atom clock prototype having a stability of at least 1E-12 for a 1 s integration time that can serve as a primary atomic frequency. Phase I focuses on the key challenges facing the developm

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB142-005
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

We propose to develop a MEMS-based optical shutter system with transition times faster than 10 microseconds and attenuations of at least 70 dB. The device will be designed for wavelengths between 780 and 894 nm, as needed for laser systems for cold-atom microsystems. Specific design features and techniques will be incorporated to trap and prev...
