Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-196
Budget: 06/10/06 - 10/10/08

An optically triggered electric power switch shall be designed and tested based on technology demonstrated in the Phase I effort that was shown to be effective. Large degrees of EMI immunity and optical triggering at low light levels in the infrared region are made possible through the use of carbon nanotube technology. The device shall be com...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-196
Budget: 03/17/05 - 03/17/06

An optically controlled electric power switch will be designed, built and tested that is compatible with "Fly-by-Light" fiber optic networks. This switch will operate in the 600 to 1200 volt, 100 Amp power range, be controllable with the low light levels received in a fiber optic WDM channel with VCSEL light source, operate at high temperatures...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF03-235
Budget: 07/16/04 - 07/16/06

This project is to build and test several passive optical sensors needed for AFRL Fly-by-Light systems based on carbon nanotube technology that has been developed in the Phase I efforts. The sensors will be developed to meet the important AFRL Fly-by-Light requirements of insensitivity to light amplitude, high degree of EMI/RFI immunity, except...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF03-235
Budget: 07/24/03 - 05/24/04

Completely optical sensors that work entirely without the use of electricity are very desirable devices for many important industrial, military and national security uses. Numerous so-called "passive optical sensors" have been proposed and designed, but none offer the performance, size and cost effectiveness of their electrical based counterpar...
