  1. Surface Modification of Exfoliated Graphite Nano-Reinforcements

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A205

    Phase I results showed that two surface treatments, oxidative plasma and reactive finishes, are effective means of modifying the surface chemistry of exfoliated graphite nanoflakes. The surface modifications provide a more compatible surface energy for dispersion in polymers and create well-bonded interfaces with the polymer matrix. In order to be cost effective for NASA and commercial applicati ...

  2. Light-Curing Structural Tape for In-Space Repair

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: X1203

    NASA has numerous requirements for in-space repair capabilities to aid future missions beyond earth orbit. A subset of these requirements is adhesive patch materials that provide permanent or temporary repair of a wide variety of surfaces with minimal surface preparation. Prior work on light (UV and visible) curing composite matrix resins for rigidizing inflatable spacecraft shows that there is ...

  5. Intermediate Temperature Fluids for Heat Pipes and Loop Heat Pipes

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: X1004

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will develop heat pipe and loop heat pipe (LHP) working fluids for what is known as the intermediate temperature range, from roughly 500 K to 700 K. Currently, there are no working fluids in this range that can be used in NASA applications, due in part to unknown physical properties and insufficient life test data. The overall objective of ...

  8. Carbon Nanotube-Based Adsorbents for Ultrafine Particulate and Volatile Air Contaminants

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: T501

    While the protective qualities of activated carbon have been enhanced by the addition of specific metal salts, activated carbon technology has changed little over the last 60 years. In this Phase I, Agave BioSystems and the Universities Space Research Association, propose to develop next generation smart adsorbents using novel carbon nanotube (CNT)-based structures for the adsorption and destruct ...

  9. Monitoring Microbes in the Spacecraft Environment by Mass Spectrometry of Ribosomal RNA

    SBC: Biotex, Inc.            Topic: X1102

    The unique stresses in the spacecraft environment including isolation, containment, weightlessness, increased radiation exposure, and enhanced microbial contamination have resulted in a compromise of the immune system in every human or animal that has ever flown in space. Identifying and monitoring the microbial population in the spacecraft environment has therefore been identified as a key maint ...

  10. Advanced Electroactive Single Crystal and Polymer Actuators for Passive Optics

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: E101

    Large stroke and high precision electroactive single crystal and polymer actuators are desired for cryogenic passive optics such as Fabry-Perot Interferometer (FPI) and Fourier Transform Spectrometer (FTS) in NASA remote sensing missions. The results of the Phase I program have successfully demonstrated the feasibility of using electroactive single crystal and polymer actuator concepts for large ...
