  1. Noncontacting Full-Field Real-Time Strain Measurement System for Air Platforms in Combined Extreme Environments

    SBC: Correlated Solutions, Inc.            Topic: AF151069

    ABSTRACT:A cooperative small business and university research and development program is proposed to begin development of a robust, non-contacting, digital image correlation based, full-field strain measurement system for high temperature applications. The Phase I studies will demonstrate that a robust high temperature digital image correlation system (HTDICS) can be developed that is capable of a ...

  2. Rapid Rewarming Reduction of Cryoprotectant Toxicity and Concentration Employing Magnetic Nanoparticles

    SBC: TISSUE TESTING TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: DHP15014

    We will evaluate a novel warming method, developed by our collaborator John Bischof, that promises solution of one of the remaining barriers for banking of large organs and vascularized composite tissues. The method involves radiofrequency and magnetic nanoparticles to obtain rapid uniform electromagnetic rewarming of biological materials instead of warming from the outer boundary using convection ...

  3. Avoiding the Ice Cryolesion in Tissue Cryopreservation with Ice Modulators

    SBC: TISSUE TESTING TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: DHP15013

    The long term goal of the proposed research is to develop improved methods for cryopreservation of complex tissues at extreme low temperature. An innovative approach is taken in the proposed line of research, where synthetic ice modulators (SIMs) are combined with established cryoprotective agent (CPA) cocktails to create more favorable conditions for cryopreservation in a process known as vitrifi ...

  4. Verified and Validated Software for Three-dimensional (3-D) Fatigue Crack Growth and Stable Crack Extension

    SBC: Correlated Solutions, Inc.            Topic: AF083175

    Development of a software tool capable of predicting crack growth in structures with complex geometries for accurate structural life predictions and residual strength assessment is proposed. The custom crack growth simulation tool, CRACK3D, will be used as the basic code for further development and implementation. First, further enhancement of the CRACK3D module for computational geometry and topo ...

  5. AlInN Lattice Matched Barrier HEMTs on Low Defect Bulk and Quasi-Bulk III-Nitride Substrates

    SBC: NITEK, INC.            Topic: AF08T006

    The goal of the Phase I program is to demonstrate the feasibility of our technical approach to grow AlInN lattice Matched Barrier HEMTs on low defect Bulk and quasi-bulk III-Nitride Substrates (GaN). This will be accomplished using our pulsed MOCVD growth technique to deposit AlInN films at a higher growth temperature than conventional MOCVD deposition methods, resulting in better material qualit ...

  6. Hybrid CMOS/Nanodevice Integrated Circuits

    SBC: Sensor Electronic Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF07T025

    We propose to develop a novel hybrid circuit approach combining CMOS and two terminal crosspoint nanodevices with a novel interface consisting of an array of pins with nanometer scale tips. Our CMOL approach will allow the fabrication of ultra-dense integrated circuits (up to 10^12 active devices per cm2) for advanced computing (up to 10^20 operation per cm2 per second), information storage and se ...

  7. Multi-color THz detectors/cameras based on patterned AlGaN/GaN HEMT structures with 2DEG

    SBC: Sensor Electronic Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF08BT26

    We propose to develop GaN based multicolor FIR/THz cameras with detector elements and readout, signal processing electronics integrated on a single chip.  The active detector elements will be submicron gated channels with 2 dimensional electron gas (2DEG). The devices with gated 2DEG (commonly known as field-effect transistors) respond to the incoming FIR radiation due to the rectification of rad ...

  8. New High-Power Rare-Earth-Doped Glass Fiber Lasers

    SBC: KIGRE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A breakthrough in fiber laser technology has been achieved which opens the door to a whole class of efficient ultra-high brightness laser sources. These diode pumped devices have the potential to replace or augment almost all existing industrial, medical,and military laser applications. Kigre's new QX phosphate laser materials exhibit high strength, high gain, high durability and superior laser ...

  10. Enhanced Digital Corrosion Detection System

    SBC: SATIS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The detection and quantification of corrosion in aircraft structures has primarily been a visual, thus subjective, technique. We propose to develop the algorithms, hardware and software needed to deploy a field-portable corrosion detection andquantification system resulting in an objective tool to evaluate the level of corrosion. The task requires: 1) determination of useable wavelengths, with m ...
