The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Defense Sciences Office (DSO) is sponsoring a Proposers Day webcast to provide information to potential proposers on the objectives of an anticipated Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for the Nascent Light-Matter Interactions (NLM) program.
DARPA seeks to develop new and systematic approaches to the design of engineered structures and materials that change how we manipulate electromagnetic waves and capitalize on nascent wave-matter interactions. Proposed research should investigate innovative approaches that enable revolutionary advances in science, devices, or systems.
The goal of NLM is to bring together and integrate new concepts into models that can both describe and predict functionality. These models will provide design tools and inform us of new engineered-material performance limits. Successful proposals will address two key elements: i) theoretical modeling/simulation of new mechanisms of light-matter interactions, and ii) identification of key/elemental structures as building blocks for modeling and predicting performance limits. Performers are expected to experimentally verify predicted parameters and validate their design tools by demonstrating new techniques for the control of light-matter interactions.
The NLM Proposers Day will be webcast on November 28, 2017 from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM. Note, all times listed in this announcement and on the registration website are Eastern Time. There is no registration fee for the Proposers Day webcast. Registration opens: As of publication of this announcement.
