Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of California, Irvine

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 07A-2014
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

Vibrationally resonant sum-frequency generation (SFG) spectroscopy is a second order nonlinear optical technique that features high chemical selectivity and a set of selection rules that makes it an ideal complement to coherent Raman scattering (CRS) as an imaging tool. Attempts have been made to construct high-resolution, high speed SFG microsc...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 49A-2014
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

An improved method is needed for the detection of radiological materials for nuclear nonproliferation and safety. Current techniques using laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS), while robust, are limited in range due to pulse energy and diffraction. Furthermore, atmospheric broadening of the spectral lines reduces the sensitivity of the de...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 12-2-A3.04
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

NASA has drawn attention to an impending need to improve energy-efficiency in low supersonic (M<~3) platforms. Aerodynamic efficiency is the foundation of energy-efficient flight in any regime, and low drag is one of the fundamental characteristics of aerodynamic efficiency. For supersonic aircraft, drag can be broadly decomposed into four compo...
