Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-15-269
Budget: 08/01/17 - 07/31/18

Boulder Nonlinear Systems (BNS) and Prof. Edward Boyden?s Synthetic Neurobiology Group at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Media Lab propose to develop a new liquid crystal spatial light modulator (SLM) capable generating high resolution holograms to overcome the ?imaging gap? that currently divides cellular-level optogenetic tech...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-14-197
Budget: 05/01/17 - 04/30/18

? DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Improving our understanding of the functional circuitry of the brain has important and manifold implications for our understanding of mental health, as well as fields like consciousness and computing. In the last decade, optical techniques have arisen that allow both recording and control of targeted neu...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-15-269
Budget: 09/01/16 - 03/31/17

Project summary The fast millisecond timescale of neuronal activity has posed a difficulty for 3D volumetric imaging, whose speed is limited in part by the axial scan methods currently available. The use of electrically tunable lenses (ETLs) for remote focusing confers speed and vibration-reduction advantages over the more traditional sample sta...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Dayton, Research Institute

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T9.01
Budget: 06/10/16 - 06/09/17

Boulder Nonlinear Systems (BNS) and University of Dayton (UD) will team on development of a non-mechanical beam steering (NMBS) subsystem for Entry, Descent and Landing (EDL) sensors. BNS will improve their current polarization grating (PG) technology which is capable of switching well over the +- 25 degree requirement called for in the solicita...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S2.03
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16

We propose the use of a phase reconfigurable spatial light modulator (SLM) in place of a static computer generated hologram (CGH) in interferometric test systems for next generation meter class telescope optics. A liquid crystal on silicon (LCoS) SLM offers additional flexibility, potentially higher measurement precision, and relaxed alignment r...

Phase 2 STTR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-14-072
Budget: 04/01/16 - 03/31/17

? DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Nonlinear optical microscopy techniques, and particularly multiphoton fluorescence microscopy, have become popular tools for visualizing the three-dimensional cellular architecture residing hundreds of microns and up to one millimeter deep in living organisms. This is particularly valuable in neurobiolog...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-14-071
Budget: 03/01/16 - 02/28/17

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The primary proposed objective is to realize a broadband high-speed spatial light modulator (SLM) for microscopy applications. Current microscopy techniques frequently employ spatial light modulators to manipulate the phase and amplitude of light illuminating a sample or and/or transmitted by a sample. The ph...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-14-071
Budget: 08/15/15 - 02/29/16

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Improving our understanding of the fundamental circuitry and dynamics of the brain has far reaching implications for a wide range of fields, including mental health, computing, and the philosophy of the mind. To this end, one of the critical questions currently facing neuroscientists lies in how brain states ...
