#FundingFriday Research proposals are sought for the Laser and Optical Program, managed by Dr. Gernot Pomrenke. The program goal is to advance the science of laser devices, laser materials, laser matter interaction, nonlinear optical phenomena and devices, and unique applications of these to solving scientific and technological problems of interest to the +United States Air Force. Novel light sources are also an objective of this program, particularly in regions of the spectrum otherwise not easily accessible. Theoretical, computational, and experimental research is encouraged. #AirForce #BasicResearch

Researchers from +UW (University of Washington) and National Tsing Hua University have constructed functional metalenses out of layered 2D materials.

“This is the first time that someone has shown that it is possible to create a metalens out of 2D materials.” -Professor Arka Majumdar

Researchers at +Cornell University find two-step training helps robots interpret the complexity of human instructions. Read the full story at http://news.cornell.edu/…/two-step-training-helps-robots-in…

The research was supported by the Schmidt Science Fellows program, NSF, AFOSR and Amazon. #BasicResearch #Robotics

#FundingFriday Research proposals are sought for the Space Science program, managed by Dr. Julie Moses, which supports basic research on the solar-terrestrial environment extending from the Sun through Earth’s magnetosphere and radiation belts to the mesosphere and lower thermosphere region. This geospace system is subject to solar radiation, particles, and eruptive events, variable interplanetary magnetic fields, and cosmic rays. Perturbations to the system can disrupt the detection and tracking of aircraft, missiles, satellites, and other targets; distort communications and navigation signals; interfere with global command, control, and surveillance operations; and negatively impact the performance and longevity of +United States Air Force space assets. Fundamental research focused on improving understanding of the physical processes in the geospace environment is encouraged.

#OTD 2000: Boeing’s first X-45A Unmanned Combat Air Vehicle (UCAV), arrived at +Edwards Air Force Base aboard a C-17 transport, where the Dryden Flight Research Center would test the X-45 for the SEAD (Suppression of Enemy Air Defenses) mission. The X-45 was a joint Air Force/AFRL/ +DARPA /+Boeing project.

#FundingFriday 💰 Research proposals are sought for the Molecular Dynamics and Theoretical Chemistry program, managed by Dr. Michael Berman. The Molecular Dynamics program seeks a molecular-level description of reaction mechanisms and energy transfer processes related to the efficient storage and utilization of energy. The theoretical chemistry program supports research to develop new methods that can be utilized as predictive tools for designing new materials and improving processes important to the +United States Air Force. #BasicResearch #Grants #Chemistry
