  1. Tunable, Reconfigurable Metamaterials Using Liquid Crystal Medium

    SBC: Applied Optimization, Inc            Topic: T8

    We propose to take advantage of the tunable, isotropic properties of Liquid Crystals (LCs) to design two different models for a tunable, LC-based metamaterial (LCM) device. This device will be designed with optimal materials and structures to operate within the visible-to-near-IR spectrum with (a) the capability to tune to multiple wavelengths, (b) the ability to respond to and function with diffe ...

  6. Concurrent High-Fidelity Measurements and Simulations for Advancing the Design of Rotating Detonation Engines

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: T2

    Rotating Detonation Engine (RDE) design is challenging due to the lack of in-depth understanding of many key mixing and combustion processes. The RDE flow field is a nonuniform mixture of fuel and oxidizer concentrations with strong injector effects, large turbulence effects, multiple shockwaves, and shear layers. These inhomogeneities can lead to significant combustion inefficiencies which have a ...
