  1. Ultra High Repetition Rate Multi-Parameter Imaging Diagnostics for Reacting Flows

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: AF11BT16

    ABSTRACT: Study of non-stationary phenomena in turbulent combusting flows requires spatial measurements of a set of parameters at kHz rates. Ideally these parameters would include the velocity , temperature, and a relevant species concentration. In response to this need, ORBITEC and the University of Wisconsin-Madison propose to develop a technique to measure velocity, temperature, and OH conce ...

  2. Volume Charge Distribution Measurement in Thin Dielectrics

    SBC: CoMMET, LLC            Topic: AF11BT20

    ABSTRACT: An instrument measuring volume charges in thin dielectric films is proposed. The instrument utilizes an enhanced Pulsed Electro-Acoustic (PEA) technique and delivers submicron spatial and at least 0.1 micro-Coulombs per cubic centimeter resolutions of the charge density. Traditional PEA instruments suffer from significant signal loss due to acoustic mismatches between the testing materi ...

  3. High-Power, Continuous-Wave 3.0- to 3.5-Micron Emitting Quantum Cascade Semiconductor Laser

    SBC: INTRABAND, LLC            Topic: N12AT003

    The technical objectives of this proposal are: 1) the design of 3.0-3.5 micron-emitting quantum cascade laser (QCL) structures grown on metamorphic-buffer-layer (MBL) substrates; 2) the realization of electroluminescent QCL structures on MBLs with emission in the 3.0-3.5-micron wavelength range. Novel tapered active-region (TA) QCLs will be designed to substantially suppress carrier leakage out of ...

  5. Chimeric Autologous/Allogeneic Constructs for Skin Regeneration

    SBC: Stratatech Corporation            Topic: OSD11H10

    Complex skin defects, including burns and trauma, represent a major medical problem affecting both military and civilian populations. In recent military engagements, burns account for approximately 5% of combat casualties. Furthermore, approximately 1.25 million Americans each year require medical attention for complex skin defects, with 50,000 people hospitalized for burns and 13,000 requiring sk ...

  6. Non-Toxic Propulsion Systems for BMDS Applications

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: MDA11025

    ORBITEC proposes to develop non-toxic propulsion systems to replace hyradzine-derivative systems in interceptor applications. In ongoing work, ORBITEC has been developing high-performance ionic liquid fuels. These inherently non-volatile fuels promise safer, less sensitive systems while providing specific impulse comparable to MMH and density specific impulse 10-15% higher. Because the ionic li ...

  7. Highly-Reliable, Radiation-Hard Laser Diode Active Materials

    SBC: Alfalight, Inc.            Topic: AF112056

    ABSTRACT: Quantum-dot gain medium in semiconductor lasers exhibit higher resistance to radiation induced damage. Irradiated diode lasers comprising quantum-dot gain medium demonstrated lasing two orders of magnitude beyond the maximum dose sustainable by quantum-well semiconductor lasers. These studies point to the strong potential for achieving a radiation resistant diode laser. Additionally, ...

  10. Cooling Channel Diagnostic System (CCDS)

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: AF112185

    ABSTRACT: ORBITEC proposes to develop the Cooling Channel Diagnostic System (CCDS), a diagnostic tool for assessing the condition of rocket engine cooling channels. This system will be used to detect and locate any deposits which inhibit heat transfer between cooling channels and the hot-gas wall of the combustion chamber. The CCDS will detect and characterize any barriers to heat transfer whic ...
