  2. Improved III-V Antimonide-Based Superlattice Materials From Growth and Defect Modeling

    SBC: SIVANANTHAN LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: A15041

    Absorber layers based on Type-II superlattices (T2SLs) composed of III-V compound semiconductors (e.g. InAs and InSb) are a promising sensor technology for infrared imaging; however, carrier lifetimes are often significantly shorter than expected, particularly in InAs/InAsSb LWIR T2SL designs that should provide high carrier lifetimes. There is strong evidence that the short lifetime results from ...

  3. Application of ICME to Optimize Processing of State-of-the-art Gear Steels in Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: A15104

    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 casting molds and forming dies. Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) methodologies are effective tools to reconfigure the materials development process and accelerate implementation o ...

  4. Mobile Military CO2 Refrigeration

    SBC: Creative Thermal Solutions, Inc.            Topic: A14054

    Refrigerant phase-out schedules for currently used HFC refrigerants are being put in place globally and affect commercial and military cooling applications. Being a natural, non-toxic, non-flammable refrigerant with a much lower Global Warming Potential, carbon dioxide (CO2) is seen as a promising future refrigerant candidate. In Phase I, Creative Thermal Solutions (CTS) provided a successful proo ...

  5. Multi-Spectral Threat Warning Adjunct Sensor

    SBC: EPIR, INC.            Topic: A17052

    EPIR Inc. and Brimrose Corp. propose to design and fabricate an adjunct sensor consisting of four spectrometers to cover the wavelength range from ultraviolet (UV) to long-wave infrared (LWIR). Each spectrometer is an integration of an acousto-optic tunable filter (AOTF) with either Si- or HgCdTe (MCT)- based photo-detector (PD). The sensor will be used to aid the existing Missile Warning/Hostile ...

  8. Versatile, Basalt Fiber-Reinforced Geopolymer Composites

    SBC: Keanetech, LLC            Topic: A17062

    Geopolymers are a class of inorganic polymers that that are made from calcined clays or industrial waste products such as fly ash and slag. Geopolymer composites are fire resistant and stable to high temperatures such as 950C. These composites are half the weight, can be 5 times stronger than high-strength concrete, and can set at ambient temperatures. The BASE project will develop geopolymer comp ...
