Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A16-042
Budget: 08/25/16 - 02/24/17

Hyperspectral imaging at full short- and extended short-wavelength infrared spectral band (0.9 2.5 m) has important military applications. When used for imaging, a SWIR camera can operate at night using light reflected off the subject in the scene, generating high resolution images with details such as shadows and surface roughness. Compared to...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N161-005
Budget: 06/03/16 - 12/03/16

Existing ultraviolet laser diodes with wavelengths much shorter than 355 nm suffer from poor performance. This is partially due to limited research in this area, but a large part is also due to material and processing issues unique to deep UV lasers. New approaches to achieving III-Nitride UV lasers at wavelengths shorter than 355nm are needed t...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA15-T004
Budget: 04/25/16 - 11/24/16

Antimonide-based Type-II superlattices (T2SL) are capable of delivering highly capable infrared detection capability. Improvement in material quality and processing techniques, as well as evolutionary modifications in device architecture have demonstrated the advantages of the material system over alternatives, and proven it as a viable candidat...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Defense
Topic: DTRA152-001
Budget: 04/11/16 - 11/10/16

This project investigates the possibility of intersubband optoelectronics as a general replacement for standard interband lasers and detectors when radiation hardness is a prime concern. It is argued that the majority carrier nature of the intersubband device provides intrinsic resistance to displacement-related effects that occur during high e...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF151-050
Budget: 07/28/15 - 04/27/16

ABSTRACT:Using lasers as signal carriers, FSO laser communications (Laser-Com) can provide a line-of-sight, wireless, high-bandwidth, communication link between remote sites. Because of the reduced scattering, long-wavelength infrared (LWIR) 8 13 um radiation possesses significantly better all-weather transmission than the shorter wavelengths in...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Northwestern University

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T8.01
Budget: 06/17/15 - 06/17/16

This proposal describes development of a new type of quantum-cascade laser for use as a local oscillator at frequencies above 2 THz. The THz source described is a single chip solution that operates at room temperature. In addition, a mechanism for wide tuning (2-4.7 THz) is described that requires no moving parts.

Phase 1 STTR

Topic: T8.01
Budget: 06/17/15 - 06/17/16

The infrared spectral range is of particular interest for remote planetary sensing of gaseous molecules, such as H2O, CO2, CH4, N2O, CO, NH3, and many other compounds. Infrared thermography can also be used to accurate measure minute variations in surface temperatures. High performance infrared focal plane arrays (FPAs) allow rapid acquisition o...
