GaN/AlGaN/AlInN Based THz Focal Plane Array Detectors, Ultraviolet (UV) Lasers, and HEMT High Power RF Devices on Low-Dislocation AlN and GaN Substra

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Research Institution: Notre Dame University
Principal Investigator: Phillip Smith, Senior Research Scientist
Award Amount: $98,760.00
RI Contact: Shanda L. Wirt
In this Phase I effort our team, a collaboration between Traycer Diagnostic Systems and The University of Notre Dame, proposes to develop a single pixel detector of terahertz frequency electromagnetic radiation. The devices we propose are AlN/GaN high electron mobility transistors which, via the… More

Advanced THz Materials for Nondestructive Evaluation (NDE)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Phillip Smith, Senior Research Scientist
Award Amount: $99,834.00
Stand-off inspection using THz sources is a promising technology for non-destructive evaluation by means of direct imaging as well as by identifying spectroscopic signatures of the material being inspected. This proposal addresses critical developments for realizing this promise. In particular we… More

III-V Based Focal Plane Arrays for Video-Rate Terahertz Imaging

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / STTR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Research Institution: The Ohio State University (primary)
Principal Investigator: Phillip Smith, Director of Scientific Research – (614) 506-5084
Award Amount: $749,671.00
RI Contact: James Ball
Owing to a unique set of intellectual property and core expertise, this Phase II team, led by Traycer Diagnostic Systems, will build and characterize a packaged, 16x16 terahertz focal plane array (FPA) for broadband video-rate imaging at frequencies up to 1.3 THz. Traycer"s competitive… More

Continuous Wave THz Imaging and Nondestructive Evaluation of Thick Outer Mold Line Paints and Coatings

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: H. L. Mosbacker, CTO – (802) 779-8697
Award Amount: $149,936.00
ABSTRACT: Many nondestructive evaluation (NDE) analysis techniques have tried to address premature failures in outer mold lines on aircraft (OMLs). Imaging through these layers with various electromagnetic and ultrasonic techniques are proven to be deficient. Typically differentiation of layers,… More
