64 Awards Won

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-060
Budget: 04/04/06 - 05/04/08

Current helmet mounted display (HMD) image sources are CRT-based and suffer from multiple issues, including weight, safety and cost resulting from drive electronics and high voltage disconnect, and packaging. Currently available emissive and transmissive miniature flat panel displays do not provide a satisfactory alternative to the CRT image sou...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N05-020
Budget: 09/02/05 - 03/02/06

We propose development of innovative head-mounted display (HMD) imagers that combine a commercially-proven technology with performance characteristics that would let a single display product serve a wide range of military HMD applications. Our HMDs are based on low-voltage/fast-switching ferroelectric liquid crystal on silicon (FLCOS) display p...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Kent State University

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA04-T020
Budget: 10/15/04 - 04/15/05

We propose the development of fast (~1 ms) spatial light modulators (SLMs) for application in near (1.8 to 2.5 micron), mid (3 to 5.5 micron) and long-wave (8 to 14 micron) infrared wavelength bands. The proposed SLMs exploit a newly discovered "sheared liquid crystal" (SLC) effect to deliver fast amplitude or phase modulation regardless of des...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF03-020
Budget: 09/30/04 - 12/29/06

It has long been known that optical phased array (OPA) beam steering can be performed by liquid crystal devices, yet available liquid crystals are either too slow for many applications (1 ms - 100's of milliseconds) or they are incapable of producing the necessary range of analog phase modulation. Developments in a new class of ferroelectric liq...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA03-075
Budget: 09/23/03 - 03/23/04

The use of optics in telecommunications and signal processing has not reached its full potential in part because of a lack of generic technologies for the fabrication of low-cost, high performance integrated devices. Furthermore, future speed requirements are anticipated to exceed the capabilities of lithium niobate (today's benchmark commercia...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Colorado Boulder

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF02T017
Budget: 09/11/02 - 09/11/03

Specially engineered self-assembling ferroelectric liquid crystal (FLCs) structures are capable of photonic bandgap functions, light emission, GHz electro-optic modulation, and second harmonic generation. Furthermore, we have demonstrated the ability to integrate FLCs with silicon integrated circuits for both experimental applications (e.g. sma...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD99-010
Budget: 01/07/00 - 07/07/00
PI: Mike O

The objective of this effort is to exploit developments in fast, low voltage nematic liquid crystal technology (NLC) to build a phase-only spatial light modulator. In Phase I our plan is to use existing Displaytech CMOS VLSI backplanes to build an experimental 256x256 pixel, 1000 frame per second SLM with 8-bit analog control and a 360 degree mo...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF97-110
Budget: 08/24/98 - 11/25/00

Important emerging technologies such as adaptive optics, optical image processing, and miniature displays, require spatial light modulators (SLMs) which can control the amplitude or phase of optical wave fronts. In many cases suitable SLMs are not yet available. New SLM technologies and manufacuturing processes must be developed in order to re...
