Large Balloon Reflector for Remote Sensing
This technology is a suborbital antenna system that is suitable for operation from radio to millimeter wavelengths. The technology can be used for remote sensing of objects on the ground, in the atmosphere or in space. Super pressure balloons will be used to transport the technology and to maintain payloads of 2-3 tons in near space. Background: Remote...

Amplified Deformable Mirror (ADM)
This invention is an advancement related to deformable mirrors, which incorporates dielectric layers into the mirror’s design. These layers afford a longer stroke than can be achieved by linear actuators. The longer stroke increases the effectiveness of the deformable mirror at longer wavelengths like far infrared. Background: Deformable...

Terahertz Transistor
This transistor works in the Terahertz range that modulates the bridge's conductivity in a nonlinear manner. It is a likely candidate for replacing silicon in superconducting transistors running at higher frequencies without the heating and power issues of silicon as well as advantages over III-V and spintronic technologies with both of these issues. Background: The...
