  1. Widely Tunable Surface Emitting Quantum Cascade Lasers

    SBC: NOUR, LLC            Topic: N151023

    Infrared countermeasure and standoff chemical detection applications require a light source with high power output, good beam quality, and a wide tuning range. There are a limited number of viable mid-infrared (3-5 micron wavelength) solutions that can provide these features in a compact and power scalable architecture. In the proposed work, a single chip solution will be developed which will deli ...

  3. Affordable CMAS-Resistant Thermal Barrier Coatings: Materials Genome Tools to Accelerate Calcium-Magnesium Alumino-Silicate (CMAS)-resistant Thermal

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: N12AT019

    Existing TBC systems in aeroturbine engines, such as yittria partially-stabilized zirconia (YSZ), are highly susceptible to degradation by infiltrating molten deposits formed when calcium-magnesium-aluminosilicate (CMAS) particulates such as dust, sand, or volcanic ash are ingested into the engine. Assessing CMAS resistance of known TBCs for a wide variety of particulates (e.g. susceptibility of s ...

  6. ICME Optimization of Nickel Aluminum Bronze Feedstock for Directed Energy

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: N171088

    Nickel Aluminum Bronze (NAB) alloys are widely used in maritime applications for their unique combination of high strength and resistance to the effects of exposure to Naval/maritime environments. However, the supply chain for the large, complex castings needed for the many Navy platforms is severely limited. Additive Manufacturing (AM) promises to be an innovative technology that can enable rapid ...

  9. An Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) Tool for the Streamlined Development of High-Entropy Alloys for Advanced Propulsion Systems

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: N17BT031

    Ni-superalloys currently are the state-of-the-art for use in aeroturbine blades and other high temperature applications. In order to push engine efficiencies higher, aeroturbines must perform at even hotter temperatures greater than the melting point of Ni (1455oC). At these temperatures, potential material solutions for achieving higher performance are limited. High Entropy Alloys (HEAs) are stab ...

  10. Optimize Additive Manufacturing (AM) Post-Build Heat Treatment (HT) and Hot Iso-static Pressing Processes for Fatigue Performance using an Integrated

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: N172106

    Additive manufacturing (AM) is a novel process of fabricating components in a layer-by-layer method under the control of computer-aided design (CAD) information, rather than by the traditional use of specially-made casting molds and forming dies. AM produced materials are highly susceptible to fatigue due to presence of large number of pores and defect, limiting its use in fatigue critical applica ...
