Our Satisfied Customers and Gratified Partners
Brimrose Technology as a spin-off R&D company of Brimrose Corporation focuses on the development of innovative R&D ideas and products specifically for the aerospace, US military and the Department of Defense (DoD) with over 30 years previous accumulated experience.

We have worked for and partnered with a select group of leading technology companies, industry labs, universities, and other government research institutions as well as Military DoD. To continue and expand this partnership mainly through the STTR Program, we are dedicated in serving our customers consistently at a high level, and actively participate in innovative R&D activities to provide industrial services and support to our partners. If you are interested in becoming a BTC partner, please visit the contact page.
Partner Collaboration
We partner with our collaborators to deliver the innovative R&D ideas essentially to their business. Most of our partners also are our customers. The followings show some projects that we have accomplished and/or are working on with our gratified partners.
After the successful demonstration of LWIR Silhouette Profiling Optical Tripwire (SPOT) unattended ground sensors in detection the presence of moving object of interest, such as human, animal, vehicle, recently Brimrose Technology has partnered with Army Research Laboratory (ARL) to work on a 2D SPOT UGS, utilizing a low-cost, low-power 2D thermal imager that offers better sihlouette image quality, and thus offers potential to further improve the classification accuracy while still using very low communication bandwidth.

As the TH program enters a new phase with improved interoperability between various sensor assets and algorithm assets, we propose to build a Terra Harvest Asset plugin to integrate the new 2D SPOT into the TH framework with a JAVA software interface/module, which will allow communication with TH Controller using existing communication port(s)/link(s) to control 2D SPOT operation and integration. The funding of the project has been issued by Patrick Air Force Base (AFB).
Brimrose Technology and University of Maryland (UMD) are partnering to work on the Semiconductor Quantum Dots Coupled to Nanocavities program that has been started in May 2011. Funding has been obtained from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).

The project will produce Core/Shell and Plasmonic Structured Quanum Dots with long shelf life, good resistance to photo bleaching and no/or minimal blinking. We synthesize, characterize and deliver CdSe Quantum Dots (QD), with and without core/shell structures, to UMD team for their incorporation in Photonic Crystals (PC) in the effort to develop optical switch.
In a recent NASA STTR Phase I Brimrose Technology developed a novel growth technique - TE Material Power Generation Technology and successfully produced single crystalline doped PbTe. We collaborated with Penn State University to consolidate the powders using the emerging field assisted-spark plasma sintering technology (FAST).

It has been reported that thermo-electric power generation (TEPG) can contribute to electrical power generation scavenged from waste heat sources. We have finished the Phase I contract, and now we are proposing the Phase II.
In the STTR Phase I we introduced a new UV-transparent material, Barium Borate or BBO, as a new acousto-optic (AO) material to replace fused silica for ultraviolet (UV) beam manipulation in trapped-ion based quantum information processors (QIP). We characterized the advantageous acoustic and optical properties of BBO and designed advanced AO devices that capitalize on the unique combination of features of BBO.

In the STTR Phase II we are parternering with University of Colorado to develop a new family of UV transparent extremely efficient, low power, thermally benign, high resolution, high contrast ratio, high frequency, acousto-optic frequency shifters, deflectors, and modulators for QIP applications. Funding has been obtained from the U.S. Army RDECOM.
In the STTR Phase I Brimrose Technology has successfully partnered with Wright-Patterson Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) to demonstrate a novel optical switching using Cd1-xMgxTe and Cd1-xMgxSe. These materials have nonlinear absorption in the wavelength range from visible to NIR, and possibly extending to SWIR.

Phase II work will further investigate the growth of IIA/B-VIB ternary materials with a goal of standardizing and optimizing the growth procedures that produce device quality crystals. As the end result of this Phase II work, we will be capable of producing material that can be directly used as passive optical switching. To our knowledge, we are the only company to produce high quality II-VI semiconductor materials for such applications.
