  2. Nonequilibrium Plasma-Assisted Combustion-Efficiency Control in Vitiated Air

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: AF13AT04

    ABSTRACT: CU Aerospace (CUA) and team partner the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) propose to perform research, development and demonstration of experimental quenching free measurements of heat-release in a realistic highly turbulent plasma-assisted flame. Kinetics models will be correspondingly updated and detailed 3D multiphysics simulations will be validated by the measuremen ...

  5. Next Generation Rad Hard Reduced Instruction Set Computer

    SBC: Nhanced Semiconductors, Inc.            Topic: AF141097

    ABSTRACT: Tezzaron proposes to create a microprocessor device based on an ARM M0 processor designed to be fabricated in the Honeywell S150 Rad-Hard SOI semiconductor process. The device will be designed for both stand alone and 3D circuit integration. In a 3D application the device can be die to wafer or wafer to wafer assembled providing a core set of SOC processor functions. BENEFIT: An ARM M ...

  6. Fabrication of aberration-free gradient index nonlinear optical materials

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF141163

    ABSTRACT: A fast, 1-cm diameter cylindrical gradient index (GRIN) nonlinear optical (NLO) refractive index lens, with large radial linear and nonlinear optical index gradients in all three optical axes will be fabricated using ink jet printing (IJP). The goal is to demonstrate the ability to modulate the third-order susceptibility by 1000x over silica. To achieve the desired performance, existin ...

  7. High Index of Refraction Materials for Printed Applications

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF141173

    ABSTRACT: Using roll-to-roll (R2R) -compatible inkjet-print (IJP) deposition and nanoimprint (NI) photolithographic patterning methods, a series of passive and electro-optic (EO) -modulated waveguide structures will be fabricated and characterized. The measured data will be compared to modeled results and the information will be used to improve device designs. Modeling will also be used to demons ...

  9. Microvascular Composites for Novel Thermal Management Devices

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: AF13AT09

    ABSTRACT: Living systems rely on pervasive vascular networks to enable a plurality of biological function, exemplified by natural composite structures that are lightweight, high-strength, and capable of mass and energy transport. In contrast, synthetic composites possess high strength-to-weight ratios but lack the dynamic functionality of their natural counterparts. CU Aerospace, with team partne ...

  10. Automated System for Holographic Lightfield 3D Display Metrology (HL3DM)

    SBC: Adi - Displays Consulting, LLC            Topic: AF141021

    ABSTRACT: Lightfield 3D displays are being developed to reduce viewer eyestrain normally found on stereoscopic displays caused by the mismatch of the focus and stereo vergence on the display. These lightfield or Field of Light Displays (FoLD) systems generate a light field by any of several approaches including holographic, volumetric, integral-imaging, and multiple-2D-depth-planes. The differen ...
