Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Texas at Dallas

Agency: Army
Topic: A04-T015
Budget: 10/03/05 - 10/02/06

ALTAIR Center in cooperation with the NanoTech Institute at the University of Texas at Dallas proposes to develop a new class of terahertz (THz) lasers generating about 1 mW in the frequency range 0.3-10 THz at room temperature. The proposed concept is based on employing the semiconductor nanocrystals (quantum dots). The nanocrystal emitters are...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Rochester

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-T013
Budget: 07/15/05 - 04/15/06

ALTAIR Center in cooperation with the University of Rochester proposes to develop the first silicon-based photonic crystal laser diode. The photonic crystal microcavity forms gain region of the laser diode. This enhances the system efficiency. The laser operating either in bandgap edge emitting mode with enhanced density of states or using defec...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Rochester

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF04-T013
Budget: 09/01/04 - 06/01/05

ALTAIR Center in cooperation with University of Rochester proposes to develop a new class of active nanophotonic devices based on quantum dots embedded into photonic crystal microstructures fabricated in silicon-on-insulator waveguides. Due to extremely strong nonlinear optical and electro-optical properties and extremely short switching times, ...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Texas at Dallas

Agency: Army
Topic: A04-T015
Budget: 07/30/04 - 01/31/05

ALTAIR Center proposes to develop a new class of tunable terahertz laser sources based on an active laser material fabricated from spherical semiconductor nanocrystals (quantum dots) incorporated into an optical medium transparent in terahertz-frequency range. Due to the strong Stark effect, recently discovered in semiconductor nanocrystals, the...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO02-011
Budget: 09/15/03 - 09/14/05

Quantum mechanics predicts that quantum two-level systems - qubits - can provide fundamentally new modes of information processing due to possible existing in an arbitrary coherent superposition of quantum states. A practical realization of quantum information processing requires obviously isolated quantum systems that act as qubits. ALTAIR Ce...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA03-049
Budget: 09/05/03 - 06/07/04

Employing of nanoparticles and carbon nanotubes opens new avenue in fabrication of new nanocoposite materials exhibiting quite a number of unique physical properties. ALTAIR Center proposes to develop an innovative process suitable for manufacturing of a large variety of the nanocomposite materials for various applications in MDA missions. The p...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO01-014
Budget: 01/30/03 - 01/30/05

ALTAIR Center proposes to develop a miniature, cost-effective fiber optic sensor array for detection of toxic heavy metal ions. The main detection principle is based on dual measurement of both absorption and fluorescence employing thin films of porphyrin/polymer membrane. In Phase I of the project we studied the luminescence compounds and demon...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 03-1
Budget: 01/01/03 - 12/31/03

ALTAIR Center proposes to develop a new class of nano-electro-mechanical systems (NEMS) based on carbon nanotubes operating at low control voltages. The proposed system consists of thin film of an appropriate solid-state material sandwiched between two nanolayers of carbon nanotubes embedded into a special matrix. The device takes advantage of r...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO02-011
Budget: 05/16/02 - 01/18/03

Quantum mechanics predicts that quantum two-level systems - quantum bits, or simply qubits - can provide fundamentally new methods of information processing due to possible existing in an arbitrary coherent superposition of quantum states. That offers an enormous gain in the use of information technology resources such as time and memory. The fi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO02-011
Budget: 05/14/02 - 11/14/02

ALTAIR Center proposes to develop an innovative technology for fabrication of a micro-lens directly on the optical fiber employing a simple and efficient self-organization process of the lens formation based on Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD). During this process the micro-lens is automatically created exactly on the fiber core as a result of a ...
