  1. DEVELOPMENT OF THE FUNCTION AND UTILITY OF AN EXTENDIBLE PNEUMATIC MOUTHSTICK

    SBC: ANHOLT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    MOUTHSTICKS OR ORTHODONTIC ORTHOSES ARE WIDELY USED BY PEOPLE WITH SPINAL CHORD INJURIES OR SIMILAR DISABILITIES TO INCREASE CONTROL OVER THEIR ENVIRONMENT. PEOPLE WITH THE ADDITIONAL LIMITATION OF LITTLE OR NO ANTERIOR/POSTERIOR HEAD MOTION MAY BENEFIT FROM AN EXTENDIBLE MOUTHSTICK. HOWEVER, COMMERCIAL EXTENDIBLE MOUTHSTICKS SUFFER IN THAT THEIR ACTION IS OFTEN SLOW, EXTENDIBILITY IS LIMITED, OR ...

  2. GaP ZnS for Blue Light Emitting Diodes

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AstroPower is developing a two-junction monolithic tandem solar cell composed of (AlxGa1-x)0.51In.49P lattice matched to GaAs for use as the top cell in a three-junction, two-terminal tandem stack. This tunable bandgap material system is capable of current matching, at 2.03eV, in a two-junction monolithic tandem solar cell two terminal design of (AlxGa1-x)0.51In0.49P/GaAs yielding a best case pred ...

  8. Nanophase Metal Oxides for Electroceramic Sensor

    SBC: Nanophase Technologies Corp            Topic: N/A

    MANY OF THE COMMERCIAL SENSORS IN USE (OR UNDER DEVELOPMENT) ARE BASED IN METAL-OXIDE CERAMIC MATERIALS. METAL-OXIDES OFFER SPECIAL ADVANTAGES BECAUSE OF THEIR CHEMICAL AND THERMAL STABILITY, FAST RESPONSE TIMES, AND SENSITIVITY TO ELECTROCHEMICAL CHANGES. THERE ARE REPORTED CASES THAT SHOW ADSORPTION OF WATER IN METAL OXIDES OFTEN ENHANCING BOTH THE SURFACE CONDUCTIVITY AND DIELECTRIC PROPERTIES ...

  9. Composite Insulators For 3000 Degree Celsius Environments

    SBC: Schaeffer Industries            Topic: N/A

    AN IMPORTANT COMPONENT OF ARCJET THRUSTERS IS THE INSULATOR HOLDING THE CATHODE BASE AND SEPARATING THE ELECTRODES. THE CURRENT BASELINE MATERIAL IS BORON NITRIDE (BN), WHICH IS WELL KNOWN FOR ITS HIGH ELECTRICAL RESISTIVITY AND HIGH THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY. HOWEVER, AT ARCJET OPERATING TEMPERATURE, BN HAS A DRAMATIC INCREASE IN ELECTRICAL CONDUCTIVITY AND A DECREASE IN THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY. ADDITION ...
