  1. A COMPACT LINDE-HAMPSON CRYOCOOLER FOR 20K OPERATION

    SBC: Alabama Cryogenic Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL COVERS THE DEVELOPMENT OF A CRYOCOOLER WITH A REFRIGERATION CAPACITY OF 0.75 WATT AT 20 KELVIN. THE CRYOGENIC UNIT WILL HAVE A VOLUME OF LESS THAN 16 CM3, AND CAN PROVIDE COOLING FOR 5 MINUTES AFTER A COOLDOWN PERIOD OF LESS THAN 20 SECONDS. THE CRYOCOOLER USES A NEW FABRICATION TECHNIQUE THAT LEADS TO A HIGH RELATIVE EFFICIENCY WITH A MINIMUM VOLUME.

  5. ATOMIC LAYER CHEMICAL VAPOR DEPOSITION OF ALGAN FOR SOLAR BLIND ULTRAVIOLET DETECTORS

    SBC: Apa Optics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    USE OF ATOMIC LAYER EPITAXY IS BEING INVESTIGATED FOR GROWING SINGLE CRYSTAL ALGAN LAYERS. THE FORMATION OF NITROGEN VACANCIES IS EXPECTEDTO BE SUPPRESSED BY THE UNIQUE ATOMIC LAYER DEPOSITIONS AND THE EXCITATION OF NH3 GAS BY A LASER SOURCE. THIS SHOULD RESULT IN HIGH QUALITY LARGE AREA SINGLE CRYSTAL LAYERS OF ALGAN WHICH COULD BE USED TO MAKE SOLAR BLIND ULTRA-VIOLET (UV) SENSORS. THESE THIN EP ...

  9. AN ENZYME IMMUNOASSAY FOR ANATOXI-A

    SBC: SURMODICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    CONSIDERABLE ATTENTION HAS BEEN FOCUSED UPON THE POSSIBLE USE OF TOXIC BIOLOGICAL AGENTS IN BOTH SOUTHEAST ASIA AND AFGHANISTAN. SUCH REPORTED INCIDENTS INDICATE A NEED FOR IMPROVING THE UNITED STATES' CAPABILITY OF ACCURATELY DETECTING A VARIETY OF NATURALLY OCCURRING TOXINS. ONE SUCH TOXIN OF CONSIDERABLE INTEREST IS ANATOXIN-A, A SECONDARY METABOLITE OF THE CYANOBACTERIA (BLUE-GREEN ALGAE) ANAB ...

  10. REAL-TIME RADOME ERROR COMPENSATION

    SBC: Cas Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A NEW CONTROL TECHNOLOGY IS AVAILABLE WHICH CAN BE USED TO DESIGN AN ADAPTIVE, REAL-TIME COMPENSATOR TO COUNTER THE EFFECTS OF RADOME BORESIGHT ERRORS IN RF HOMING MISSILES. THIS CONTROL THEORY MAKES USE OF THE FACT THAT RADOME ERRORS ARE NOT COMPLETELY RADOM, BUT MAY BE DESCRIBED BY THE WEIGHTED SUM OF A FINITE NUMBER OF FUNCTIONS WHOSE WEIGHTING COEFFICIENTS ARE ASSUMED PIECEWISE CONSTANT, BUT O ...
