  3. Improved Buffered Substrates for YBCO Coated Conductors

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    65706 Negative-electron-affinity (NEA) photocathodes, which produce polarized electrons, are a vital component of electron accelerators. For the next Linear Collider (NLC), the polarized electron beam intensity must be at least 20 times greater than that produced by strained GaAs, used in the current generation of photocathodes. Additionally, the degree of electron polarization needs to b ...

  7. Plasma Electrolytic Oxidation (PEO) Coatings as Superior Thermal Barriers for Engine Pistons

    SBC: IBC Materials & Technologies, LLC            Topic: 13c

    Automobiles (cars and trucks for instance) are the predominant mode of transportation in the United States. These vehicles are powered by internal combustion engines that consume fossil fuels such as gasoline. Improving the efficiency of internal combustion engines is an ongoing challenge of enormous impact to energy consumption in the world. In order to improve engine efficiency and thus fuel eco ...

  8. Pressure Sensor Eletronics for High Temperature Drilling

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    70291 Achieving 0.5 psi accuracy at pressures up to 10,000 psi in geothermal drilling applications will require precision pressure transducing technology. Capacitive pressure transducers would be ideal for both the high accuracy and high temperature stability requirements, but supporting electronics that can also operate a 300oC or higher are lacking. This project will utilize wide band gap ...

  9. Turbine Blade Emissivity Sensor

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: N/A

    70036 The drive for higher efficiency and lower pollutant emission has necessitated the use of higher temperatures in commercial turbine engines. These higher temperatures result in degradation of the thermal barrier coating that is used on the turbine blades. Therefore, commercial gas turbine engine manufacturers require a sensor that can quickly sense this degradation. This project will d ...
