Award List:

OXIDE EUTECTIC FIBERS FOR HIGH TEMPERATURE COMPOSITES

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1991 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Herbert E. Bates
Award Amount: $49,764.00
Abstract:
The objective of this proposed program is to test the application of the edge-defined, film-fed, growth process (efg) to growth of refractory oxide eutectic fibers. work is directed to producing a range of microstructures in the grown fibers by variation of growth process parameters. these results… More

Continuous Mullite Fibers for High Temperature Structural Ceramic Composites

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1993 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Herbert E Bates
Award Amount: $49,719.00

Continuous Mullite Fibers for High Temperature Structural Ceramic Composites

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1994 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Herbert E Bates
Award Amount: $375,000.00
Abstract:
The Phase I project will demonstrate the feasibility of producing Mullite (Al6Si2O13) fibers using the Saphikon Edge-defined, Film-fed Growth (EFG) process. The reactivity of mullite melts ranging from 60 to 80 mole percent will be evaluated using crystal growth components fabricated from iridium,… More

Sapphire Optical Fibers for Surgical Erbium Lasers

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1994 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Jeremiah Fitzgibbon
Award Amount: $80,626.00
Abstract:
Utilization of the promising Erbium: YAG laser has been hindered by the lack of a truly effectiveoptical fiber delivery system. The innovation proposed is to demonstrate sapphire optical fibers as aneffective means of delivering 2.94 micron Erbium: YAG laser energy in pre-clinical in vitro… More
