Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF112-124
Budget: 09/28/11 - 06/28/12

ABSTRACT: We propose research & development efforts aimed at determining the technical feasibility of novel liquid-droplet-based thermal switches. Specifically, through combined modeling and experimental work, we aim to demonstrate the technical feasibility of achieving (1) On-state thermal conductance > 2000 W/m2 K, (2) Switching ratio > 10, ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N101-056
Budget: 07/14/10 - 01/14/11

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I SBIR project will prototype a MEMS-based gas sensor. The MEMS-based gas sensor uses a microfabricated photonic crystal to emit infrared light in a specific portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. The wavelength can be tuned by design to overlap an absorption band of methane, for example, to make a...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: BT8-2010
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I SBIR project will demonstrate the feasibility of a MEMS-based measurement device, capable of measuring the growth and reproduction of individual mammalian cells and micro-organisms such as bacteria in fluid environments. The device is based on a suspended microchannel resonator (SMR), a microfabri...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB072-026
Budget: 11/23/09 - 03/11/12

Novel design for MEMS RF varactor developed in Phase I is to be used in the design of a tunable filter for the diplexer module of a Communications Data Link (CDL). Presently, the diplexer function is handled by filter banks which are selected based on whether the unit is functioning in transmission or reception mode. The MEMS devices set and s...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2009
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II (SBIR) project will develop a microfabricated subwavelength antireflective structure (SWARS) for use with a MEMS infrared detector to form and infrared camera. The SWARS structure was prototyped in Phase I and shown to allow greater than 90% of incident radiation in the 8-12 ýým portion of the IR ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2009
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will prototype a MEMS-based electromagnetic pump for small, controlled or continuous delivery of a drug. In contrast to other designs for micropumps, the MEMS pump is configured to move in the plane of the substrate on which it is built, allowing it to have relatively complex shape, ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB072-026
Budget: 02/13/08 - 10/28/08

We plan to use an innovative cantilevered MEMS switch design developed at MIT- Lincoln Labs in a tunable Ka band filter component, which performs according to the requirements of this SBIR solicitation. In conjunction with MIT and subcontractor Dr. Andy Brown, we plan to design and develop the tunable filter component and present the design to ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2008
Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I SBIR research project will prototype a MEMS-based hydrocarbon gas sensor. The MEMS-based gas sensor uses a microfabricated photonic crystal to emit infrared light in a specific portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. The wavelength can be tuned by design to overlap an absorption band of methane, f...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2008
Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II SBIR project will develop manufacturing capabilities for MEMS electrical switches with a novel dual substrate design approach. The approach consists of dividing the switch components between two substrates, with the moving portion on an upper substrate, and the stationary contacts on a lower subst...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2007
Budget: 01/01/07 - 12/31/07

This Small Business Innovation Research Program Phase I (SBIR) project will test and confirm a novel approach to the manufacture of small cantilevered MEMS electrical switches. The approach obviates or ameliorates a multitude of problems which exist using the present surface machining approach to the fabrication of these switches. The approach d...
