  1. Atomic Layer Deposition of Oxidizer Coatings on Aluminum Nanoparticles to Fabricate Superthermite Explosives

    SBC: ALD NANOSOLUTIONS, INC            Topic: N/A

    "Energetic thermite composites are composed of a metal fuel (e.g. Al) and an oxidizer (e.g. Fe2O3). Thermite composites have a much higher reaction enthalpy per cm3 than conventional explosives such as TNT. However, current thermite composites do notyield a higher reactive power because of the large diffusion distance between the metal fuel and oxidizer in thermite powders. To minimize the diff ...

  2. Identification of the Species Responsible for Biological Inactivation in the OAUGDP

    SBC: Atmospheric Glow Technologies            Topic: N/A

    "Atmospheric Glow Technologies (AGT) proposes to initiate studies to elucidate the mechanism of inactivation of microorganisms using atmospheric plasma. In this Phase I work effort, AGT will identify and quantify the active species generated by the APD-210(Atmospheric Plasma Decon-210). The APD-210 has been independently shown to inactivate a number of different microorganisms including anthrax ...
