  1. PICO-SECOND OPTICAL HARDWARE IMPLEMENTATION FOR NEURAL NETWORK SYSTEMS

    SBC: BRIMROSE CORPORATION OF AMERICA            Topic: N/A

    ACOUSTO-OPTIC (AO) BRAGG CELLS OFFER THE ADVANTAGES OF RELATIVELY LOW POWER CONSUMPTION AND THE ABILITY TO PRODUCE MULTIPLE OUTPUT OPTICAL BEAMS OF VARYING INTENSITY FOR ONE BEAM ENTERING THE SYSTEM. THE MAJOR DISADVANTAGE OF THEAO DEVICE IS ITS ACOUSTIC WAVEFORM PROPAGATION DELAY, WHICH SETS A FUNDAMENTAL LIMIT ON DEVICE SPEED. ELECTRO-OPTIC (EO) DEVICES, ON THE OTHER HAND, OFFER AN ORDER OF MAGN ...

  2. IN SITU CHARACTERIZATION OF DIAMOND SURFACES DURING LOW PRESSURE CHEMICAL VAPOR DEPOSITION

    SBC: Schmidt Instruments Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE CHEMICAL MECHANISMS OF CHEMICAL VAPOR DEPOSITION (CVD) OF DIAMOND AND OTHER ELECTRONIC MATERIALS ARE AT BEST POORLYUNDERSTOOD. DURING PHASE I, WE SHALL CONSTRUCT A LOW PRESSURE CHEMICAL VAPOR DEPOSITION (LPCVD) REACTOR EQUIPPED WITH AN ION BEAM SURFACE PROBE AND DEMONSTRATE ITS UTILITY IN DETERMINING SURFACE STOICHIOMETRIES UNDER ACTUAL DEPOSITION CONDITIONS IN-SITU. THE GOAL IS TO PERFECT AND ...

  3. SCANNING TUNNELING MICROSCOPY ETCHING OF NANOMETER SCALE INTEGRATED CIRCUITS

    SBC: J. & D. Scientific, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    PRESENT METHODS UTILIZED FOR THE FABRICATION OF INTEGRATED CIRCUITS ARE BASED ON MICROLITHOGRAPHY, EITHER OPTICAL, X-RAY, ELECTRON BEAM, OR ION BEAM. THESE METHODS ARE SIGNIFICANTLY LIMITED IN THE PRODUCTION OF SMALLER SCALE FEATURES (E.G., NANOLITHOGRAPHY), BY THE WAVELENGTH OF THE RADIATION (OPTICAL AND X-RAY LITHOGRAPHY) AND/OR BY THE COMPLEXITY AND COST OF THE EQUIPMENT (X-RAY AND ELECTRON AND ...

  4. ARRAY COMMUNICATIONS COPROCESSOR

    SBC: Systems & Processes Engineering Corporation            Topic: N/A

    AN ARRAY COMMUNICATIONS COPROCESSOR (ACC) ARCHITECTURE HAS BEEN DEVELOPED THAT PROVIDES AUTOMATIC, ADAPTIVE, AND DYNAMICALLY CONFIGURABLE INTER-PROCESSOR COMMUNICATIONS AND IS COMPATIBLE WITH MOST COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE STATE-OF-THE-ART COMPLEX INSTRUCTION SET COMPUTERS (CISC) AND REDUCED INSTRUCTION SET COMPUTERS (RISC). IN THIS INVESTIGATION, THE ARRAY COMMUNICATIONS CONTROLLER IS BEING IMPLEMEN ...

  5. ELECTRO-OPTICAL/FLUIDIC GUIDANCE FOR KINETIC ENERGY PROJECTILES

    SBC: DEFENSE RESEARCH TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    ONE APPROACH TO COMMANDING KINETIC ENERGY PROJECTILES IS TO GUIDE THE PROJECTILE TO THE TARGET VICINITY BY A CODED LASER BEAM. A RELATIVELY NARROW FIELD-OF-VIEW STRAPPED-DOWN SEEKER THEN ACQUIRES THE TARGET ANDCLOSES IN FOR THE KILL. A LIGHTWEIGHT, ELECTROMAGNETIC INTERFERENCE (EMI)/NUCLEAR INSENSITIVE, ULTRA-RUGGED, NO-MOVING PARTS, NONELECTRONIC, FLUIDIC ELECTRO-OPTICAL ENERGY CONVERSION DEVICE ...

  6. ELECTROMAGNETIC BEARINGS FOR MINIATURE HIGH SPEED TURBOEXPANDERS IN SPACE-BORNE CRYOCOOLERS

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    CRYOGENIC COOLING OF ADVANCED SENSORS IS BEING INVESTIGATED, PARTICULARLY CRYOCOOLERS THAT USE MINIATURE HIGH-SPEED TURBOEXPANDERS.A MINATURE ELECTROMAGNETIC BEARING (EMB) DESIGN FOR CRYOGENIC TURBINES IS BEING UNDERTAKEN TO OVERCOME THE LIMITATIONS OF GAS BEARINGS. THE PROPOSED EMB, BECAUSE IT IS NON-CONTACTING, IS EXPECTED TO SHOW ULTRA-HIGH RELIABILITY OVER EXTENDED PERIODS OF CRYOCOOLER OPERAT ...
