  1. Nonintrusive fiber interferometer for ablative TPS recession measurement

    SBC: Electrodynamic Applications Inc            Topic: AF10BT04

    ABSTRACT: The next generation of hypersonic and reentry vehicles being designed for the Department of Defense (DoD) applications will require advanced Thermal Protection System (TPS). While new TPS shields are under development, a key difficulty is the ability to predict and diagnose TPS performance. ElectroDynamic Applications (EDA) has been developing an optical diagnosticfor use during testi ...

  3. High efficiency materials&processes for the reduction of CO2 to syngas

    SBC: Liquid Light, Inc            Topic: AF11BT07

    ABSTRACT: Liquid Light and Princeton University will develop an electrochemical process for syngas evolution that uses carbon dioxide and water as the feedstocks. Syngas evolved from the system will then be converted to JP-8 via existing Fischer-Tropsch systems. The syngas evolution process will be based on heterocyclic catalysts originally discovered at Princeton University. Research in Phase I ...

  6. Technologies for Nanoscale Imaging Using Coherent Extreme Ultraviolet and Soft X-Ray Light

    SBC: Kapteyn-Murnane Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: AF11BT11

    ABSTRACT: Microscopy is a critical enabling technology for advancing our understanding of nature. Imaging nanoscale objects with light in the extreme ultraviolet (EUV) and soft x-ray regions of the spectrum has advantages over visible light for resolution, elemental specificity, and imaging internal structures. Coherent diffractive imaging (CDI) has been developed as a tool to get around the li ...
