Nano-g Micromachined Inertial Sensors with Low Payload Impact, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Nano-g Micromachined Inertial Sensors with Low Payload Impact, Phase I
Radiant Acoustics' patented technology for micro-interferometry enables a nano-g intertial sensor for NASA's emerging needs. The proposed sensor system is 1000x more sensitive than commercial sensors. The sensor combines silicon micromachining (i.e. MEMS) and nanotechnology-based infrared vertical cavity surface emitting lasers (VCSELs) to form a robust sensing architecture functioning in a fundamentally different way than any existing sensor systems by using an optical interferometer within a 5 mm^3 package. Working prototypes have been fabricated and characterized. This Phase I proposal is to develop our proven laboratory innovation into a product for NASA and other commercial markets. All Key Personnel are Full time Employees of the company. More »
