Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 00-1
Budget: 01/01/00 - 12/31/00

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF96-187
Budget: 04/10/97 - 12/30/98

In Phase I work, Barr Associates, Inc. successfully made ultra-narrow (0.7 nm or 7A), 3-cavity, high throughput (85%), infrared (1540 nm) bandpass filters. These thin film interference filters isolate a narrow range of wavelengths from a broader wavelength spectrum with high signal throughput. Both military and commercial applications await th...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF96-187
Budget: 04/26/96 - 10/26/96

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 95-2
Budget: 01/01/95 - 12/31/95

Performance of present and planned space-borne remote sensing instruments could be significantly improved by the incorporation of thermally stable optical coatings. We propose to investigate the use of ion-assisted deposition (IAD) in the fabrication of large area narrowband interference filters which are uniform to within 2 Angstroms. Issues su...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 94-1
Budget: 01/01/94 - 12/31/94

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 92-2
Budget: 01/01/92 - 12/31/92

METAL COATINGS DEPOSITED USING CONVENTIONAL EVAPORATION ARE UNSTABLE WHEN EXPOSED TO SUCH ELEMENTS OF THE ENVIRONMENT ASMOISTURE, HEAT, AND RADIATION. STATE-OF-THE-ART SPACE AND ASTRONOMICAL APPLICATIONS, SUCH AS WHITE-LIGHT, ALL- REFLECTING CORONOGRAPHS, REQUIRE COATINGS WITH OPTIMUM PROPERTIES. THESE APPLICATIONS REQUIRE LARGE-SIZE, SUPER- SMO...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 92-1
Budget: 01/01/92 - 12/31/92

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A87-112
Budget: 12/18/90 - 09/17/91

ION ASSISTED DEPOSITION (IAD) OF THIN FILMS WILL BE EMPLOYED TO DEPOSIT OXYNITRIDES OF SILICON AND ALUMINUM COATINGS. THE IAD PROCESS PRODUCES DISCRETE AND GRADED INDEX COATINGS WITH IMPROVED OPTICAL AND MECHANICAL PROPERTIES. THESE COATINGS WILL BE USED FOR MAKING EYE PROTECTION SYSTEMS FOR LASER RADIATION. OPTICAL FILTERS MADE WITH SINUSOID...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 90-1
Budget: 01/01/90 - 12/31/90

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 89-2
Budget: 01/01/89 - 12/31/89

PRESENT UV FILTERS CAN HAVE VERY HIGH SPECTRAL PERFORMANCE, BUT THE BEST SPECTRAL PERFORMANCE GENERALLY REQUIRES USE OF MATERIALS AND FILTER CONSTRUCTION WHICH ARE NOT WELL QUALIFIED FOR USE IN SPACE AND HAVE MARGINAL IMAGE QUALITY. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS EFFORT IS TO IMPROVE THIS SITUATION BYREDUCING TO MINIMUM, THE NUMBER OF SUBSTRATES USED AND...
