Kilopixel Array Cryostat (KAC) System for Multi-Kilogram Transition Edge Sensor (TES) Arrays

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOC / NIST
Principal Investigator: Charlie Danaher
Award Amount: $89,977.00
Abstract:
Identify and study candidate architectures for supporting and cooling massive (~5 Kg) arrays of transition edge sensors, achieving hold times for one week at temperatures below 100mK.

Dilution refrigerator technology for scalable quantum computing

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Research Institution: UNIV. AL, SANTA BARBARA
Principal Investigator: Charlie Danaher, Vice President
Award Amount: $99,658.00
RI Contact: John Martinis
Abstract:
Develop a Pulse Tube Cooler (PTC) driven Dilution Refrigerator (DR) to provide for cryogen free, rapid turn-around for operating large number of qubits. This effort will incorporate low vibration features, high-density and high-speed wiring technology. The proposed system will require no liquid… More

Kilopixel Array Cryostat (KPAC) System for Mulit-kilogram Transition Edge Sensor (TES) Arrays

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOC / NIST
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $299,903.00
Abstract:
Transition Edge Sensor (TES) detector development at NIST has reached a level where arrays containing several thousand pixels (kilopixels) are practical and , indeed, necessary for fielding systems required for many industrial, research, and homeland security applications. Current easily deployable… More

Dilution refrigerator technology for scalable quantum computing

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / STTR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Research Institution: U of California Santa Barbara
Principal Investigator: Charlie Danaher, Vice President
Award Amount: $749,983.00
RI Contact: John Martinis
Abstract:
Currently large capacity cryostats, capable of hosting experiments for many qubits, require expensive and hard to obtain liquid cryogens. A few small cryo-free systems exist but they are non-ideal for this use. An opportunity exists for a large scale, c

Prostate Cancer In Vivo Using an Ultra Low Field MRI Device

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Charlie Danaher
Award Amount: $298,020.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Prostate cancer (PCa) is the second leading cause of male cancer deaths in the U.S., and although the disease can be managed or treated in many ways, clinicians lack suitable scanning tools for diagnosing and tracking P Ca. Conventional magnetic resonance imaging… More
