Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Commerce
Topic: N/A
Budget: 08/31/17 - 08/30/19

High density wafer scale cryogenic probing solution for testing at 4.5K temperatures or below is needed for testing and characterization of devices and circuits employing superconducting electronic components (such as used for quantum processing, high speed classical processing, magnetic field sensors, etc.) as well as for testing of various par...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Institute of Standards and Technology
Topic: 9.01.04
Budget: 08/01/16 - 01/31/17

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S1.05
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16

For sensitive detection of neutral and charged particles in satellite survey missions, instrumentation for the efficient rejection of EUV, Deep UV and visible flux is needed that also efficiently transmits the particles. At present, commercially available filters offer deep UV rejection, limited particle transmission efficiency, and limited late...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Virginia Polytechnic Institute

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T3.01
Budget: 06/17/15 - 06/17/16

Thermoelectric devices are critical to multiple NASA missions for power conversion with radioisotope sources. At present, commercially available TE devices typically offer limited heat-to-electricity conversion efficiencies, well below the fundamental thermodynamic limit, calling for the development of higher efficiency materials. The team of Mi...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 10E-2013
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

The main obstacle Photovoltaic (PV) industry is facing at present is the higher cost of PV energy compared to that of fossil energy. While solar cell efficiencies continue to make incremental gains these improvements are so far insufficient to drive PV costs down to match that of fossil energy. Improved in-line diagnostics however, has the po...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 42 F-2013
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

All high power target facilities and accelerators, especially the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB), require magnetic field sensors to measure magnetic fields in various magnets employed at these facilities as well as in cyclotrons. The currently used and/or commercially available sensors show only limited radiation resistance and in genera...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Old Dominion University

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF10-BT26
Budget: 09/01/12 - 09/30/14

ABSTRACT: The team of MicroXact, Inc., ODU and Virginia Tech proposes to develop a revolutionary high efficiency thermoelectric material fabricated on completely new fabrication principles. The material comprises the three-dimensional "wells" of PbTe/PbSe superlattices fabricated by a conformal coating via Atomic layer Deposition (ALD) of macrop...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of California, Santa Barbara

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF09-BT23
Budget: 08/08/12 - 08/08/14

ABSTRACT: The team of MicroXact, Inc., UCSB and UC Irvine proposes to develop a CMOS-compatible memristor, which will enable next generation signal processors, extremely efficient (i.e. dense, inexpensive, low power consuming), with the capabilities for massively parallel signal processing. More specifically, we offer to solve the reliability an...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Virginia Polytechnic Institute

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF10-BT26
Budget: 05/24/11 - 02/23/12

ABSTRACT: Thermoelectric (TE) devices already found a wide range of commercial, military and aerospace applications. However, at present commercially available TE devices typically offer limited heat to electricity conversion efficiencies, well below the fundamental thermodynamic limit, calling for the development of higher efficiency materials....
