  1. 3D Tip Characterization and Surface Reconstruction

    SBC: Nanometrology International, Inc.            Topic: 9070168TT

    Nanometrology International, Inc. (NMI) proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of 3-dimensional (3D) characterization of nanoscale objects using scanning probe microscopy (SPM) with a measurement uncertainty of less than 0.7 nm. To accomplish this task, we propose a novel method of 3D tip characterization and use of an innovative surface reconstruction algorithm recently introduced by NIST and th ...

  6. Lightweight, Efficient Power Converters for Advanced Turboelectric Aircraft Propulsion Systems

    SBC: MTECH Laboratories, LLC            Topic: A201

    NASA is investigating advanced turboelectric aircraft propulsion systems that utilize superconducting motors to drive a number of distributed turbofans. Conventional electric motors are too large and heavy to be practical for this application, and so superconducting motors are required. In order to improve maneuverability of the aircraft, variable speed power converters would be required to thro ...
