Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 20a
Budget: 06/12/17 - 03/11/18

Multi-MeV, “runaway” electrons pose a serious risk in tokamak plasmas, capable of inflicting catastrophic damage to the armor and vessel walls. A proper diagnosis of these runaway electrons is critical to mitigating their formation. To mitigate the shortcoming of present diagnostics, a new diagnostic with adequate temporal and spatial resolutio...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB143-002
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

Efficient computational analysis of systems exhibiting complex plasma phenomena, including non-neutral kinetic, fluid behaviors with radiation transport are critical to many DoD missions. Examples of these systems include plasma thrusters, hypersonic vehicles, radiation effects simulations, RF sources, and compact neutron sources. Current simul...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: The Ohio State University

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF11-BT23
Budget: 07/01/14 - 06/30/16

ABSTRACT: Strong coupling in ionized plasmas occurs when inter-particle interactions result in correlation energies that are comparable to the mean kinetic energy of the thermal motion of individual particles. Strongly coupled plasmas are known to be present in a number of physical systems including ultra-cold plasmas created in the laboratory a...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N121-059
Budget: 09/06/13 - 09/06/15

The successful results of the Phase I work will be utilized by implementing an optimized ultra-short pulse Optical Parametric Chirped Pulse Amplifier at an eye safer Short Wave InfraRed (SWIR) wavelength. The system will be designed with a goal of 1 kHz repetition rate and will ultimately reach a pulse energy of 100 mJ in two OPA stages. The OPA...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N121-059
Budget: 06/12/12 - 12/12/12

As a stepping stone to the design and development of a 1-kHz repetition-rate, high peak and high average power OPCPA (Optical Parametric Chirped Pulse Amplifier) in Phase II, we propose to design, optimize, and test novel methods for significantly enhancing OPA conversion efficiency in a system which has already demonstrated the specified energy...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF093-013
Budget: 03/29/12 - 06/30/14

ABSTRACT: Voss Scientific proposes to develop an Automated Susceptibility Test Assembly (ASTA) which will be capable of efficiently determining preferred electromagnetic (EM) source waveforms for inducing effects in target electronic systems. This novel adaptive approach will potentially discover unique waveforms that substantially reduce the i...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Maryland

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF09-BT08
Budget: 11/04/11 - 11/04/13

ABSTRACT: Military applications for the use of directed electromagnetic energy seek to disrupt electronic systems by exploiting non-linearity in semiconductors. While current mode second breakdown is a thermal non-linearity often exploited, it has been demonstrated that for a broad class of semiconductors RF/HPM signals at the interface will co...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: The Ohio State University

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF11-BT23
Budget: 09/28/11 - 11/30/12

ABSTRACT: We propose to develop and validate a strongly-coupled non-equilibrium plasma simulation model. Strongly coupled plasmas occur in a wide range of physical situations impacting a wide range of research and development areas connected to Air Force technology. The simulation model proposed here is based on the particle-in-cell (PIC) metho...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Maryland

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF09-BT08
Budget: 04/15/10 - 01/14/11

Military applications for the use of directed electromagnetic energy, which include high power microwave (HPM), seek to disrupt electronic systems by exploiting non-linearity in semiconductors. While current mode second breakdown is a thermal non-linearity often exploited, it has been demonstrated that a broad class of semiconductors have more ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF093-013
Budget: 03/08/10 - 03/07/11

Voss Scientific proposes an innovative methodology to determine the susceptibility of electronic systems to electromagnetic interference. Termed the Automated Susceptibility Test Architecture (ASTA), this novel adaptive approach will result in decreased test times and potentially discover unique waveforms that will substantially reduce the inte...
