83 Awards Won

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Morton Photonics, Inc.

Institution: University of California, Santa Barbara

Agency: Department of Defense
Topic: A14A-T005
Budget: 09/27/16 - 09/26/18

In this STTR program, technology created in Professor John Bowers research group at the University of California at Santa Barbara (UCSB) to fabricate silicon photonics based integrated lasers, including wafer bonded III-V gain elements and ultra-low loss silicon nitride waveguides and microresonators, will be utilized to develop ultra-coherent i...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Agnitron Technology Inc.

Institution: University of California, Santa Barbara

Agency: Navy
Topic: N16A-T023
Budget: 07/11/16 - 05/10/17

Future DoD and Navy missions require advances in current high voltage power electronics technology as existing technology and even recent promising advances in Silicon Carbide and Gallium Nitride based materials lack fundamental material properties to deliver switching capabilities needed for future high power converter applications, advanced ra...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Angstrom Designs, Inc.

Institution: University of California, Santa Barbara

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T13.01
Budget: 06/10/16 - 06/09/17

Remote sensing, when combined with real-time processing, provides instant feedback on safety, mission success and system health. Being able to combine embedded sensing with distributed networks gives us the additional potential to further benefit many systems and sub-systems in the aerospace industry including launch vehicles, ground test equip...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Freedom Photonics LLC

Institution: University of California, Santa Barbara

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T8.02
Budget: 06/10/16 - 06/09/17

The objective of this program is to develop, demonstrate and implement an integrated optical transmitter for RZ-DPSK modulation for integration into modems for the international space station (ISS). Conventional optical transmitters are based on commercially available discrete components. These have several fiber interconnects which leads to inc...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Fluency Lighting Technologies, Inc.

Institution: University of California, Santa Barbara

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: PH
Budget: 01/01/16 - 12/31/16

The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project is to deliver energy and electricity savings in the high-power lighting market, by creating an energy-efficient, high color-quality, and cost effective alternative to conventional light sources using laser technology and materials design. Co...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Toyon Research Corp.

Institution: University of California, Santa Barbara

Agency: Navy
Topic: N14A-T009
Budget: 12/14/15 - 12/18/17

Toyon Research Corporation, together with the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) propose to demonstrate a GPS-denied Local Carrier-based Precision Approach and Landing System (LC-PALS) that enables 3-D position, navigation and time (PNT) for platforms within range of an aircraft carrier equipped with one or more ADEPT-compliant beaco...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Mayachitra, Inc.

Institution: University of California, Santa Barbara

Agency: Navy
Topic: N14A-T008
Budget: 11/10/15 - 04/11/17

Thousands of years of evolution have produced the human vision system that computers cannot replicate well. Humans are still unsurpassed in their ability to search for objects in visual scenes. To successfully detect objects in cluttered scenes, the human brain is thought to rely on multiple factors: prior probabilities of object occurrence, glo...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Hypres, Inc.

Institution: University of California, Santa Barbara

Agency: Army
Topic: A14A-T010
Budget: 11/03/15 - 10/29/16

HYPRES, in collaboration with University of California, Berkeley, proposes to transition superconducting parametric amplifier technology into a robust line of products. In Phase I, we designed a compact package for lumped-element Josephson parametric amplifiers (LJPA) fabricated by our collaborators at MIT Lincoln Laboratory. We have also establ...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Physical Sciences, Inc.

Institution: University of California, Santa Barbara

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T12.02
Budget: 05/28/15 - 05/27/17

Silicon Carbide based ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) offer the potential to fundamentally change the design and manufacture of aeronautical and space propulsion systems to significantly increase performance and fuel efficiency over current metal-based designs. Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and our team members at the University of California Sa...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: ATOM Nanoelectronics

Institution: University of California, Santa Barbara

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF15-AT15
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

ABSTRACT: In this project, we propose to develop the baseline process to form low source-drain contact resistance to the CNTs. This includes finding the right metal stack and annealing recipe to form good ohmic contact to the CNTs. The goal is to achieve a resistance less than 25 k? at per nanotube contact. To reach such goal, we will leverage t...
