  5. Light-Activated Shape Memory Composite

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: ST061007

    Future systems such as morphing aircraft will adapt and reconfigure to accommodate mission needs. These shape changes must allow change while still bearing substantial loads. Fiber-reinforced composites are the preferred reinforcement materials due to their mechanical and lightweight properties suited for meeting the requirements of morphing systems. Although thermally activated shape memory comp ...

  6. Arc Source Multi-Layer Coatings to Doublelighting System Lifetimes without Affecting Performance

    SBC: Energy Focus, Inc.            Topic: SB052004

    We will determine how to effectively apply an organometallic external barrier coating to arc tubes to prevent or delay their failure by devitrification. The most important consideration is source life, followed by lumen maintenance, the spectral output and cost. The coating process will be the Microdyne system demonstrated in Phase I. The alternate processes of CLCB and dip-coating will be investi ...

  7. Enabling Electrostatic Painting of Automotive Polymers with Low Cost Carbon Nanofibers

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: 06NCERP1

    Applied Sciences, Inc. (ASI) investigated the use of inexpensive carbon nanofiber (CNF) to impart electrical conductivity to polymer systems to allow the use of electrostatic painting (ESP) techniques to paint these polymers in the same manner as metals without the need for a solvent- based primer coat. The production of polymer composites that can be electrostatically painted with no additional p ...

  8. Development of a Reliable, Low-Cost and User-Friendly Spot Test Kit for Leaded Dust Based on Recent Advances in Bionanotechnology

    SBC: ANDALYZE, INC.            Topic: 06NCERP1

    Lead in household paint and dust is a serious health hazard, as low-level lead exposure can result in a number of adverse health effects, especially in children. Onsite and real-time detection and quantification of lead in paint/dust are very important to homeowners and certified lead-based paint removal professionals. Toward this end, both field-portable equipment (such as X-ray fluorescence inst ...
