  1. SCRAP TIRE PYROLYSIS-- PRODUCTION OF HIGHLY ENHANCED MARKETABLE PRODUCTS

    SBC: Hichem Corp.            Topic: N/A

    RESEARCH WILL BE CONDUCTED BY HICHEM CORPORATION, TO DEVELOP A NEW TECHNOLOGY FOR PYROLYSIS OF SCRAP TIRES. DISPOSAL OF USED TIRES IS A BIG PROBLEM IN THE WORLD, ESPECIALLY USA, SINCE MORE THAN 2.5 MILLION TIRES ARE DISCARDED EACH YEAR. MOST OF THESE TIRES ARE DISPOSED IN LANDFILLS. PYROLYSIS OF SCRAP TIRES HELPS TO RECOVER AND REUSE MOST OF THE VALUABLE CHEMICAL AVAILABLE IN TIRES. PYROLYSIS OF S ...

  2. LARGE AREA NON-CONTAMINATING HIGH FLUX ATOMIC HYDROGEN SOURCE

    SBC: Ionwerks, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A new approach to generating atomic hydrogen (and possibly N and O) will give atomic fluxes of 10(-19) atoms/cm(-2) over a three inch wafer positioned three inches in front of the source. Scalt up to larger areas may be possible in phase II. We will examine the use of this source as an alternative to hot filament assisted generation of atomic H for diamond thin film growth. Use of the source for M ...

  3. GROWTH OF LATTICE MATCHED GAN/INGAN/ZNO IN A MBE/CBE CHAMBER OPTIMIZED FOR HIGH TEMPERATURE WIDE BANDGAP NITRIDE GROWTH

    SBC: Ionwerks, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Ionwerks has begun an internally funded project to design and manufacture an MBE growth chamber specifically designed and optimized for wide bandgap nitrides (compatible with Si/Ge growth also). This chamber will include two proprietary growth techniques which we have found to be crucial for formation of cBN thin films. Design and construction of this chamber is underway. We will use this equipmen ...

  4. SI/GE OPTICAL BUS ARRAY AND BINARY FANOUT HOLOGRAM FOR SI-BASED VLSI WAFER-SCALE OPTOELECTRONIC INTERCONNECTS

    SBC: RADIANT RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose a dratically new optoelectronic chip modules (OCMs) concepts to optically interconnect Si-based VLSI wafer-scale integrated circuits. Realizing the fact that system clock speed is three to five times higher than that ofprocessor speed, we propose to develop an optical clock signal distribution networks for wafer-scale interconnects. The architecture is to employ a superstrate Si/Ge wave ...

  5. Boron Nitride Coating Process Oxidation Resistant Tribological

    SBC: SI Diamond Technology Inc            Topic: N/A

    A NEW PLASMA ASSISTED CHEMICAL VAPOR DEPOSITION (CVD0 PROCESS ACHIEVES PHENOMENALLY HIGH GROWTH RATES, EXCELLENT ADHESION AND UNIQUELY CONTROLLABLE MICROSTRUCTURES IN LOW-Z CUBIC MATERIALS AT ATMOSPHERIC PRESSURE. SI DIAMOND TECHNOLOGY, INC. PROPOSES TO EXTEND THIS TECHNOLOGY TO PRODUCE CUBIC BORON NITRIDE (cBN) COATINGS, AND EXAMINE THEIR UTILITY AS OXIDATION BARRIERS AND TRIBOLOGICAL COATINGS ON ...

  6. Laser-based Diamond Boule Growth

    SBC: SI Diamond Technology Inc            Topic: N/A

    A NEW LASER-BASED DIAMOND GROWTH TECHNIQUE HAS BEEN SHOWN TO DELIVER GROWTH RATES HIGHER THAN ANY OTHER KNOWN TECHNIQUE. THE TECHNIQUE, BECAUSE OF ITS UNIQUE "CONTAINERLESS PROCESSING", SHOULD PROVE VERY USEFUL IN GROWING HIGH QUALITY SINGLE CRYSTAL DIAMOND FOR USE IN THERMAL MANAGEMENT AND ELECTRONIC APPLICATIONS. THE ENORMOUS GROWTH RATES POSSIBLE WITH THIS PROCESS, AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, ITS UNS ...

  7. OPTIMAL FAULT TOLERANT SYSTEM

    SBC: Smart Machines            Topic: N/A

    We propose the new architecture to attain the following tasks: a) Optimal and deadlock-free combination of global load balancing with dynamic task scheduling on a multiprocessor machine, yeilding busyness close to one for arbitrary algorithm; b) Optimal and deadlock-free fault tolerant execution with the minimum number of messages and no postponements of the underlying computations; and c) Assuran ...

  8. True Three Dimensional Monitor

    SBC: SPECIALTY DEVICES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO BUILD, TEST AND CHARAXTERIZE A NOVEL THREE DIMENSIONAL MONITOR FOR THE DIRECT DISPLAY OF THREE (OR HIGHER) DIMENSIONAL INFORMATION. OUR DEVICE IS CONSTRUCTED OF A THREE DIMENSIONAL ARRAY OF PIXELS, ACTUALLY "VOXELS", WHICH IN THEIR QUIESCENT STATE ARE TRANSPARENT. WHEN THESE ELEMENTS ARE EXCITED OPTICALLY, THROUGH A FIBER OPTIC PIGTAIL, THEY FLOURESCE. THE SUM OF MANY FLOURESCING ELE ...

  9. IMPROVED METHOD FOR HEATING CATALYTIC CONVERTERS OF VEHICLES TO ATTAIN ULTRA-LOW EMISSIONS

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: AirQuality

    THE THREE-WAY CATALYTIC CONVERTER IS THE MOST IMPORTANT DEVICE MAKING TODAY'S AUTOMOBILES COMPLY WITH EXISTING EMISSION LAWS. THE FIRST TWO OR THREE MILES IN A TYPICAL 22-MINUTE, 12-MILE COMUTE IN TODAY'S VEHICLES RESULT IN THE EMISSION OF HALF OF THE TOTAL NON-METHANE HYDROCARBONS, WHICH RESULT IN THE PRODUCTION OF URBAN SMOG, AS WELL AS HALF OF THE TOXIC CO EMISSIONS. THIS OCCURS BECAUSE THE CAT ...
