Optical Quantum Network Time Frequency Multiplexer
Physical Sciences Inc (PSI), has been awarded a research program from the Department of Energy (DOE) to develop photonic chip-based time-to-frequency multiplexers to convert time-bin quantum information to frequency-division multiplexed signals within a single time-bin, effectively ‘stacking’ multiple time bins, that will be transmitted efficiently through fiber and demultiplexed using a complimentary chip.
Stabilized, Freeze Dried Bacteriophage for Use in Austere Environments
Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI), in collaboration with the University of Connecticut (UConn), has been awarded a research program from the US Army to develop a formulation and process for lyophilization, or freeze drying, of bacteriophages for improved stability to enable bacteriophage treatments in austere environments.
Elbit Systems of America Partners to Produce Next-generation Night Vision Through DARPA-funded Program
Elbit Systems of America has partnered with Physical Sciences Inc. and Stanford University to produce a next-generation night vision system for America’s Warfighters, offering more capability in a smaller and lighter package. The partnership was created to produce a solution for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) that selected the group to participate in its Enhanced Night Vision in eyeglass form (ENVision) program. The team collaboration on DARPA’s ENVision program will run through October 2023.
Synchronous Parallel-Plate Non-Linear Transmission Line (SPP-NLTL)
Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) has been awarded a program from the U.S. Navy to develop an extremely compact broadband HPM source that delivers MW-level power with broad frequency and pulse width tuning.
Optical Radiopurity Material Measurements
Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI), has been awarded a contract from the Department of Energy (DOE) to develop a laser-based magneto-optical atomic polarization spectroscopy technique that is capable of quantifying Uranium-238 (U), Thorium-232 (Th), and Potassium (K) in clean materials – the dominant primordial isotopes contributing to a radiation background in underground rare-event nuclear physics experiments.
DARPA Kicks Off Program to Explore Space-Based Manufacturing
DARPA has selected eight teams to pioneer novel ways of designing and manufacturing large structures on orbit. Physical Sciences Inc. will develop continuous fabrication of regolith-derived, glass-ceramic mechanical structures for use in large-scale orbital applications.
