Award List:

Inkjet Printing of Flexible Circuits on Polymer Substrate

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1998 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Research Institution: University of Dayton
Principal Investigator: Chunt-tse Chu
Award Amount: $99,329.00
RI Contact: Robert Boehmer
Abstract:
When light radiates from the surface of a man-made object, the radiation is often polarized. The polarization components contain information about the spatial orientation of the surface elements. The polarization components may also reveal the material and surface roughness of the surface elements.… More
