Quantitative In-Situ TEM Nanoindentation Apparatus

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Oden Warren, Dr.
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
75333-Nano-indentation is the primary technique for assessing the nanomechanical behavior of small volumes of materials. With this technique the load required to produce a given displacement into the sample by a sharp diamond tip is measured, and the hardness of the material is derived. However,… More

Quantitative In-Situ TEM Nanoindentation Instrument

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Oden Warren, Dr.
Award Amount: $750,000.00
Abstract:
75333S Nanoindentation is the primary technique for assessing the nanomechanical behavior of small volumes of materials. With this technique, the force required to produce a given displacement into a sample by a sharp diamond tip is measured, and the hardness of the material being tested is… More

Quantitative In-Situ TEM Nanotribology Tester

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Oden L. Warren, Dr
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
Instead of being sent to flare which contributes to energy loses and greenhouse gas emissions, many refinery off-gases could be converted into valuable chemicals such as hydrogen. However, the refinery off-gases contain large concentrations of sulfur that must be removed to prevent the poisoning of… More

Quantitative In-Situ TEM Tensile Testing Apparatus

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Zhi-Wei Shan, Dr
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
The Department of Energy supports collaborative research centers for electron beam microcharacterization of materials. Within these facilities, in situ transmission-electron-microscopy (TEM) tensile testing has been a powerful tool for revealing underlying physical mechanisms when materials are… More

Quantitative In-Situ TEM Nanotribology Tester

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Oden L. Warren, Dr
Award Amount: $750,000.00
Abstract:
Friction and wear are energy-robbing processes that represent a tremendous burden to the national economy, especially in this time of record oil/fuel prices. Unfortunately, the field of tribology (the science of friction, lubrication, and wear of interacting surfaces in relative motion) lags many… More

Quantitative In-Situ TEM Tensile Testing Apparatus

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Zhi-Wei Shan, Dr
Award Amount: $750,000.00
Abstract:
In situ tensile testing in the transmission electron microscope (TEM) has been a powerful tool for revealing underlying physical mechanisms at the nano or even atomic scale when materials are subjected to an applied stress. However, all commercially available in situ TEM tensile holders suffer from… More

Versatile Micro/Nano-mechanical Load Frame For In

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: S.a. Syed Asif, Director of R&D
Award Amount: $69,997.00
Abstract:
In situ TEM based nano mechanical testing has been a powerful tool for directly correlating the mechanical response with the underlying physical mechanism and microstructure evolution when materials are subjected to a stress. However, geometrical restriction of the specimen thickness for electron… More
