Abstract:

This Navy Phase I SBIR Program proposes to develop infrared (IR) transmitting spinel ceramics, with good environmental durability, that can be green molded into domes, hyper-domes, and aspheric shapes using freeze forging (FF) and spinel sintering technology to produce close-to-net shape blanks. This project will perform complete characterization of the novel spinel ceramic material, optimize the 3-D fabrication process, and fabricate a full-size hyper-hemispherical dome using spinel for IR sensing applications.
