  5. Shear Stress Sensor Using Shape Memory Films

    SBC: DOMINCA LLC            Topic: AF03T010

    There is a need for a low profile, simple, accurate, localized, responsive sensor to measure shear stress in fluid flow. The unusual properties of shape memory alloys, and of Ni2MnGa in particular, suggest they could be sensing elements for shear. In recent years, single crystal films of Ni2MnGa have been grown by Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE). Once released from their substrate, these films hav ...

  6. High Energy Density Capacitors for Navy Pulse Power Applications

    SBC: TPL, INC.            Topic: N03T007

    Advanced power systems for Future Naval Capability depend on capacitor banks as the first stage of pulsed power. Significant electrical energy is necessary to support a range of applications including electromagnetic armor, electromagnetic gun and electro-mechanical aircraft launch systems. It is anticipated that each electric ship will require up to one trillion joules of capacitor energy. Adv ...
