  1. Methodologies for Cost-Effective Measurement of Dynamic Material Properties or Characterization of Materials under Dynamic Loads

    SBC: PROTECTION ENGINEERING CONSULTANTS LLC            Topic: MDA16T003

    Explosions and high-velocity impacts can create strain rates on the order of 105 to 107 s-1.To simulate these events, first-principles codes require material models that are valid at these loading rates.Currently, the amount of test data, material models and material constants for this strain rate range is extremely limited, and an innovative and cost-effective laboratory test procedure is needed. ...

  3. METALORGANIC MOLECULAR BEAM EPITAXY

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    METALORGANIC MOLECULAR BEAM EPITAXY (MOMBE) IS A SEMICONDUCTOR GROWTH TECHNIQUE THAT HAS THE POTENTIAL FOR COMBINING THE BEST FEATURES OF MOLECULAR BEAM EPITAXY WITH THOSE OF ORGANOMETALLIC VAPOR PHASE EPITAXY (OMVPE). A MAJOR PROBLEM HINDERING DEVELOPMENT OF MOMBE TECHNIQUES FOR GROWING GROUP III/V SEMICONDUCTORS IS THE AVAILABILITY OF APPROPRIATELY DESIGNED SOURCE REAGENTS THAT PERMIT EFFICIENT ...

  4. BARIUM-TITANIUM OXIDE THIN FILM OPTICAL GUIDED-WAVE PHASE MODULATOR

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    FERROELECTRIC MATERIALS SUCH AS BARIUM TITANIUM OXID (BARIO3) HAVE ELECTRO-OPTIC COEFFICIENTS THAT ARE AN ORDER OF MAGNITUDE GREATER THAN THAT OF THE MORE COMMON LITHIUM NIOBIUM OXIDE (LINBO3). THEIR SUPERIOR POTENTIAL HAS NOT BEEN EXPLOITED BECAUSE THE ROUTINE GROWTH OF LARGE DEFECT-FREE OPTICAL QUALITY CRYSTALS HAS NOT BEEN ACHIEVED. IN THIS INVESTIGATION, PLANAR WAVEGUIDES ARE BEING FABRICATED ...

  5. ULTRAFAST DIAMOND FILM PHOTOCONDUCTIVE DETECTOR

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    OVER THE PAST DECADE STUDIES HAVE INDICATED THAT IT IS POSSIBLE TO UTILIZE THE ULTRAFAST (PICOSECOND) RESPONSE TIMEOF A PHOTOCONDUCTOR TO DETECT AND TIME RESOLVE THE RAPID VARIATIONS OF LIGHT FROM A RAPIDLY CHANGING SOURCE SUCH AS APULSED LASER, A LASER FUSION EXPERIMENT, A DIRECTED ENERGY WEAPON OR A NUCLEAR WEAPONS EXPLOSION. IN ADDITION TO THE RAPID TEMPORAL EVOLUTION OF THE LIGHT OUTPUT FROM S ...

  6. Ferroelectric Capacitors for Pulse Power Electronics

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    HIGH-DENSITY ENERGY STORAGE AND FAST DISCHARGE WILL BE CRITICAL IN A VARIETY OF HIGH POWER AEROSPACE APPLICATIONS. CAPACITORS ARE IDEAL FOR THESE PURPOSES, AS WELL AS FOR POWER CONDITIONING AND FILTERING. UNFORTUNATELY, BULK POWDER-BASED DIELECTRICS USED IN CAPACITORS HAVE SEVERE LIMITATIONS, ESPECIALLY THE HIGH NUMBER OF SHORT-INDUCING DEFECTS CAUSED BY POOR CONTROL OF MATERIAL PROPERTIES IN CERA ...

  7. IN-SITU DIAGNOSTICS FOR DEPOSITION OF HIGH T SUPERCONDUCTING FILMS

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A RENEWED INTEREST IN THE APPLICATIONS OF SUPERCONDUCTIVITY HAS RESULTED FROM THE RECENT DISCOVERY OF PEROVSKITE-LIKE COPPER-OXIDE SUPERCONDUCTORS WITH TRANSITION TEMPERATURES ABOVE LIQUID NITROGEN TEMPERATURES. ALTHOUGH THE THIN FILMS AS DEPOSITED GENERALLY HAVE THE APPROPRIATE Y:BA:CU STOICHIOMETRY, A SUBSEQUENT HIGH TEMPERATURE (T>900 DEGREE CELCIUS) OXYGEN TREATMENT IS REQUIRED TO ACHIEVE THE ...

  8. CALCIUM-ZIRCONIUM-PHOSPHATES FOR SPACE-BORNE OPTICAL AND STRUCTURAL COMPONENTS

    SBC: Materials Technologies Corporation            Topic: N/A

    NEW MATERIALS ARE NEEDED FOR SPACE-BORNE PRECISION OPTICAL COMPONENTS AND THERMO-MECHANICALLY STABLE, LARGE LIGHTWEIGHT STRUCTURES. THE OPPRTUNITY EXISTS FOR FABRICATING BOTH OPTICAL COMPONENTS AND SUPPORT-ING STRUCTURES WITH MATERIALS OF THE SAME CHEMICAL COMPOSITION. CALCIUM-ZIRCONIUM-PHOSPHATE (CZP) CERAMICS ARE BEING EXPLORED FOR POSSIBLE USE IN THE FABRICATION OF SPACE-BORNE STRUCTURAL AS WEL ...

  10. Multiple Rectangular Discharge CO2 Laser

    SBC: Qsource, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    An innovative discharge geometry for a very compact, area cooled, high average power CO2 laser employing a two mirror, waveguide-stable optical cavity is proposed. The specific Phase I result sought is the generation of an average CO2 output power of 1 W/cm2 of wall cooling area in a geometry that has a total cooling area of 140 cm2. A lightweight CO2 amplifier version of a future Phase II devic ...
