  1. DEHYDROHALOGENATION OF COMPLEX HAZARDOUS ORGANIC WASTES FOR DESTRUCTION AND RESOURCE RECOVERY

    SBC: Chemical & Metal Industries, I            Topic: N/A

    THE PRODUCTION OF HALOGENATED ORGANIC COMPOUNDS (HOCS) AND OF CHLOROFLUOROCARBONS (CFCS), IN THE UNITED STATES, PRODUCES ABOUT 200 MILLION POUNDS OF REFRACTORY, HAZARDOUS WASTE PER YEAR. DUE TO ITS LOW FUEL VALUE, CORROSIVITY, ANDHAZARDOUS METALS CONTENT, THE WASTE IS POORLY SUITED FOR DISPOSAL BY INCINERATION AND IS BANNED FROM DISOSAL IN LANDFILLS. PREVIOUS HAZARDOUS WASTE DISPOSAL RESEARCH, SPO ...

  2. SURFACTANT FLUSHING/WASHING--AN INNOVATIVE METHOD OF HAZARDOUS WASTE TREATMENT

    SBC: Eckenfelder Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE TECHNICAL OBJECTIVES OF THIS PROPOSAL ARE ORIENTED TOWARD THE DEVELOPMENT OF SOIL SURFACTANT FLUSHING AND WASHING AS A LOW-COST, LOW-IMPACT, LOW-RISK, EFFECTIVE TECHNIQUE FOR THE REMOVAL AND ULTIMATE DESTRUCTION OF THE ORGANIC CONTAMINANTS IN SOIL. THESE OBJECTIVES ARE: DEMONSTRATION OF THE EFFECTIVENESS OF AN IONIC SURFACTANT SOLUTION AT CONCENTRATIONS ABOVE THE CRITICAL MICELLE CONCENTRATION ...

  5. ULTRA LOW ABSORBANCE KINETIC PHOTOMETER

    SBC: Artel Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ONE KEY PROBLEM IN MAKING LOW ABSORBANCE MEASUREMENTS IS THERANDOM NOISE GENERATED IN VARIOUS SYSTEM COMPONENTS SUCH AS PHOTODETECTORS, ETC. ANOTHER CLASS OF PROBLEMS ARE ENVIRONMENTAL IN ORIGIN, SUCH AS AIRBORNE OR SAMPLE-BORNE CONTAMINATION, AND SCHLIEREN EFFECTS. THE PROPOSED INSTRUMENT, BASED ON WELL KNOWN WAVELENGTH MODULATION TECHNIQUES, BUT NOVEL IN CERTAIN CRITICAL ASPECTS, SUBSTANTIALLY R ...

  6. KRYPTON-81 DATING IN POLAR ICE SAMPLES

    SBC: ATOM SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AIR BUBBLES TRAPPED IN POLAR ICE AT THE TIME OF ICE FORMATION PROVIDE VALUABLE CLUES TO AID IN OUR UNDERSTANDINGOF THE CAUSES OF GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE. IT IS VITAL IN THISEFFORT THAT THE AGE OF THE ICE (WHICH MAY BE 500,000 YRS. ORMORE IN SOME LOCATIONS) BE ESTABLISHED. PRESENTLY, THERE ISNO METHOD FOR DATING ICE ABSOLUTELY BEYOND 50,000 YRS. A NEW METHOD FOR DATING POLAR ICE IN THE RANGE OF 50,00 ...

  7. MEASUREMENT OF CARBON 14 ISOTOPICALLY SELECTIVE RESONANCE IONIZATION MASS SPECTROSCOPY

    SBC: ATOM SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    (14)C DATING BY MEANS OF RADIOACTIVE DECAY COUNTING, AND RECENTLY BY MEANS OF TANDEM ACCELERATOR MASS SPECTROMETER (TAMS) IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT IN A WIDE RANGE OF FIELDS INCLUDING ANTHROPOLOGY, ARCHAEOLOGY, HYDROLOGY, OCEANOGRAPHY, AND OTHERS. PROPOSED HERE IS A NEW METHOD FORCOUNTING (14)C OR, MORE SPECIFICALLY, MEASURING (14)C/(12)C AND (14)C/(13)C RATIOS, THAT REQUIRES SMALLER SAMPLES BY THREE ...

  8. "ELECTROPLATED HIGH CRITICAL TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTOR TAPECONDUCTOR"

    SBC: Colorado Superconductor Inc            Topic: N/A

    LARGE SCALE APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS FOR HIGH TC CERAMIC SUPERCONDUCTORS (HTSCS), IN ADDITION TO HIGH CURRENT DENSITY, INCLUDE HIGH MECHANICAL STRENGTH AND CHEMICAL AND MECHANICAL STABILITY. MULTICOMPONENT HTSC LAMINATES WITH JC GREATER THAN 1000 A/CM2 AT 77 KELVIN FABRICATED BY THE CONTRACTOR ADDRESS THESE REQUIREMENTS. ELECTRODEPOSITION FROM A NON-AQUEOUS SOLUTION OF THE METAL CLADDING LAYER IN ...

  9. DESIGN AND SYNTHESIS OF FERROELECTRIC LIQUID CRYSTALS FOR HIGH SPEED APPLICATIONS

    SBC: Displaytech Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    THE LONG RANGE SCIENTIFIC GOALS OF THIS RESEARCH ARE TO INCREASE UNDERSTANDING OF THE CORRELATION OF MOLECULAR STRUCTURE WITH PHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF FERROELECTRIC LIQUID CRYSTAL (FLC) PHASES, AND TO TEST STRATEGIES FOR DESIGN OF NEW MATERIALS. THE PRACTICAL GOAL IS THE INVENTION OF NEW FLC MATERIALS WITH PROPERTIES SUITED FOR INCORPORATION INTO COMMERCIAL FLC SHUTTERS AND LARGE-AREA MATRIX DISPLAY ...

  10. BISTABLE OPTICALLY ADDRESSED SPATIAL LIGHT MODULATOR FOR OPTICAL COMPUTING

    SBC: Displaytech Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP A FAMILY OF NOVEL OPTICAL DEVICES BASED ON OPTICALLY ADDRESSED SPATIAL LIGHT MODULATORS EMPLOYING POLARIZATION SELECTIVE REFLECTORS. THESE DEVICES CAN EXHIBIT OPTICAL BISTABILITY AT VERY LOW LIGHT LEVELS, HENCE SHOULD BE USEFUL FOR A WIDE VARIETY OF OPTICAL PROCESSING APPLICATIONS, INCLUDING MEMORY. THE PROPOSED DEVICES WILL COMBINE OUR ALREADY DEMONSTRATED HIGH PERFORMANCE S ...
