Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Northwestern University

Agency: Army
Topic: A11A-T008
Budget: 01/30/13 - 02/19/14

Detecting light at the single photon level is a fundamental measurement function that is useful in a wide variety of applications, including such diverse fields as quantum communications, laser ranging, and biological spectroscopy. Avalanche photodiode based single-photon detectors are convenient solid-state devices that do not require cryogenic...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Northwestern University

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF09-BT21
Budget: 06/14/12 - 06/13/14

ABSTRACT: Quantum key distribution (QKD) is an exciting application of quantum theory to the important real-world problem of secure communication. Specifically, QKD may allow for provably secure key distribution. These random keys can then be used either in a one-time pad style encryption system (for absolute security at low rates) or a standard...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Northwestern University

Agency: Army
Topic: A11A-T008
Budget: 08/30/11 - 02/27/12

Detecting light at the single photon level is a fundamental measurement function that is useful in a wide variety of applications, including such diverse fields as biological spectroscopy, laser ranging, and quantum communications. Avalanche photodiode (APD) based single photon detectors (SPDs) are very convenient in that they are small solid st...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB082-007F
Budget: 03/31/10 - 03/30/11

Quantitative and visually intuitive information is critical to understanding, designing, and verifying the operation of any complex system. Measurement tools, such as vector signal analyzers which allow the visualization of radio frequency signal constellations, are now an indispensable part of modern engineering methods. There is intense intere...

Phase 2 STTR

Topic: AF07-T028
Budget: 06/29/09 - 06/29/11

Analog-to-digital conversion (ADC) is an essential operation in many applications including radar, sensing, communications, and instrumentation. Two key parameters of an ADC are its sampling rate and resolution, measured in samples per second and number of bits, respectively. Unfortunately, as the sampling rate increases the maximum resolution i...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB082-040
Budget: 01/14/09 - 09/16/09

Coherent light consisting of multiple-frequency combs is commonly used in metrology. Various methods of generating combs exist which are suited for different applications. Mode-locked lasers naturally output a train of phase-locked spectral lines and are a very simple way of generating a comb. These lasers do not operate in the continuous wave r...

Topic: SB082-007
Budget: 01/12/09 - 08/28/09

Quantitative and visually intuitive information is critical to understanding, designing, and verifying the operation of any system. For instance, a vector signal analyzer allows a designer to gain an immediate understanding of a radio communications link by visualizing the transmission signal constellation. Additional analysis such as a calculat...

Topic: A07-T020
Budget: 09/03/08 - 09/03/09

Entangled photons have special properties arising from their quantum nature and have been used for scientific purposes such as demonstrating quantum teleportation. Several fascinating applications for entangled photons have been proposed including quantum metrology, computation, communication, and key generation. However, generating entangled li...
