  1. Optically clear multi-layered protective window/sensor film for use on rotary wing aircraft


    Since the inception of windscreens on aircraft, the effects of erosion on the transparent materials utilized for this application has been problematic. With the development of faster aircraft, Night Vision Goggles and various sensors which utilize electromagnetic waves in the visible and IR ranges this problem has been intensified. The team at United Protective Technologies, propose to provide dat ...

  2. Complex Coolant Fluid for PEM Cell Systems

    SBC: DYNALENE INC.            Topic: 32

    75554-Due to the inherent inefficiencies of Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) fuel cell stacks, a coolant must be used to remove the waste heat produced by the fuel cell. Deionized (DI) water or glycol/water solutions with a deionizing filter are commonly used as a fuel cell system coolant. Although these fluids are non-flammable and thermophysically efficient, the electrical conductivity increases ...

  3. Cryostat with Foil and MLI

    SBC: Advanced Magnetic and Cryogenic, LLC            Topic: 3

    75824-Induction cores, used to accelerate the heavy ion beams in inertial fusion, are built around the outer diameter of the cryostat that houses the superconducting quadrupole array. A compact cryostat would be highly desirable for reducing the cost of the induction cores. Recent experience with the fabrication of a cryostat for single beam transport revealed that the spacing in the cryostat va ...

  4. Light-Weight Nanocrystalline Hydrogen Storage Materials

    SBC: ADVANCED MATERIALS CORP.            Topic: 44

    75879-Hydrogen storage materials with a large capacity are needed to store, transport, and utilize hydrogen for fuel cells. This project will employ a unique combinatorial technique for rapidly screening a number of nanocrystalline alloys and intermetallics, in order to identify prospective compositions with hydrogen storage capacities of approximately 5 to 6 wt%. These compositions will be tail ...

  5. An Innovative Laser-Based Sensor for Monitoring Mercury in Gasifier Syngas

    SBC: Advanced Monitoring, Inc.            Topic: 42

    75867 Mercury (Hg) emissions are an important environmental problem because Hg is a volatile heavy metal that is toxic and bioaccumulates to a high degree in animals and humans. The major sources of Hg emissions include fossil fuel combustion, waste incineration, and chloralkali production. With the increased development of coal gasification technologies, the monitoring of Hg in gasifier synthe ...

  6. Large Area PMT

    SBC: Burle Industries, Inc.            Topic: 43

    72705-The next generation of nucleon-decay and neutrino experiments will require high sensitivity photo detectors with a total active area of at least 10,000 m2. Existing photomultiplier tubes would impose severe limitations on the size and sensitivity of these experiments, due to their cost and manufacturing leadtime. This project will develop a large area, low-cost photomultiplier tube for the ...

  7. Thinner Silicon Detectors and Novel Interconnections for Robust High Energy Physics Detectors

    SBC: DIGITAL OPTICS CORP.            Topic: 8

    76214-Next generation experiments in High Energy Physics require the use of thinned detectors with high density interconnects; however, present manufacturing techniques for wafer thinning produce very low yields. Standard processing techniques have proven to be unacceptable for the production of high pixel count detector assemblies. Therefore, this project will develop technology for plasma-etch ...

  8. Novel, Active Layer Nanostructures for White Light Emitting Diodes (LEDS)

    SBC: Dot Metrics Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 36

    75630-The most efficient solid-state white lights developed so far typically use a bright blue light emitting diode. The diode is used not only as a blue source, but also for the simultaneous optical excitement of an inorganic downconverter, which converts a fraction of the blue light to yellow. When the yellow light is mixed with the remaining blue, it is perceived by the human eye as white. H ...

  9. Precision Holder Technology for In-Situ TEM Experimentation

    SBC: E A Fischione Instruments, Inc.            Topic: 30

    75272-Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) is a technique that allows materials to be analyzed to the nanometer and sub-nanometer scales. This instrument could achieve a new level of materials analysis if dynamic experimentation could be performed within its microscope chamber. However, this feature would require specialized specimen-holding technology to perform the desired experiments. This ...

  10. Proof-of-Concept Testing of a Gold Recovery Process Using Magnetic Activated Carbon

    SBC: EnvirosafeTechnologies            Topic: 25

    72321-The processing rate in gold extraction applications is limited by current production methods. Pulverized activated carbon could be used to improve reaction kinetics, reduce energy consumption, and minimize the waste generated per unit of gold produced; however, this carbon cannot be separated from the ore. This project will develop technology for rendering the powdered carbon magnetic so t ...
