Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Advanced Research Projects Agency - Energy
Topic: DE-FOA0001256
Budget: 01/01/16 - 12/31/18

Concentrator PV systems using highly efficient multijunction photovoltaic cells hold out the promise of very low-cost solar electricity generation, but their adoption has been hamstrung by the requirement for bulky mechanical trackers that add cost, diminish land use, increase maintenance, and exclude roof-top installations. The Stationary Wide-...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: PH-2013
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

The broader impacts/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project is in two main application areas: infrared cameras and telecommunications components. Tunable infrared lenses will enable highly capable miniaturized infrared cameras, resulting in improved systems for security, automatic navigation, and sa...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF121-127
Budget: 10/17/13 - 10/17/15

ABSTRACT: Glint Photonics will develop advanced prototypes of the Spatially Controlled Opto-Fluidic Attenuator (SCOFA), a new type of optical element that can addressably and selectively block incoming light over arbitrary areas. The SCOFA is an array of shutter pixels, each of which contains a small droplet of light-blocking fluid. Electrowetti...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 05A-2012
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

The use of concentrating optics to reduce the area of photovoltaic cells needed in solar power modules has the potential to reduce overall system costs, making solar energy less expensive and speeding its widespread adoption as a cost-effective and sustainable power source. An ideal concentrating module would be flat, lightweight, low...

Phase 1 SBIR

Topic: AF121-127
Budget: 04/06/12 - 01/06/13

ABSTRACT: Glint Photonics proposes to develop the Spatially Controlled Opto-Fluidic Attenuator (SCOFA), a new type of optical element that can addressably and selectively block incoming light over arbitrary areas. The SCOFA is an array of shutter pixels, each of which contains a small droplet of liquid metal. Electrowetting actuation is used t...
