SCI Engineered Materials Inc. of Columbus, Ohio, has been awarded a two-year Phase II Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant. The company, which manufactures ceramics and metals for applications in photonics and thin-film solar, will use the funding to develop round wires for use in high-magnetic fields developed for high-energy physics experiments.
- The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
