  1. Improved Electron Yield and Spin-Polarization from III-V Photocathodes via Bias Enhanced Carrier Drift

    SBC: ALD NANOSOLUTIONS, INC            Topic: N/A

    72323B03-I The exploration of certain regimes of high energy physics will require the development of photocathodes with emitted electron spin-polarizations above 90%. Emitted electron spin-polarizations approaching 90% have been achieved, but at the expense of quantum yield. Because natural diffusion spatial spread disfavors complete transport to the emitting surface, this project will deve ...

  2. Novel Polymer Nanocomposite Processing

    SBC: ALD NANOSOLUTIONS, INC            Topic: N/A

    72212-The uniform dispersion of nanoceramic filler particles within a polymer matrix, for producing high quality polymer/ceramic nanocomposites, is a very time-and energy-intensive process. The development of efficient methods for uniformly dispersing nanoceramic inclusions, which are well-adhered to the polymer throughout the polymer matrix, and for fabricating parts from such composites at low ...

  3. The Use of Boron Nitride for Improved Cold-Cathode Electron Field Emission Technology

    SBC: Electrodynamic Applications Inc            Topic: N/A

    Low-power Hall thrusters offer potentially important advantages for certain military applications but issues of lifetime and efficiency degradation at lower powers are issues hindering its utilization. A factor impacting efficiency is that thestate-of-the-art techniques for electron generation used for neutralization (such as hollow cathodes operating on the same propellant as the thruster) do no ...

  4. MEMS-Augmented Structural Sensor (MASSpatch) for wireless health monitoring

    SBC: Extreme Diagnostics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This STTR project develops self-powered PZT sensor/actuators, MEMS temperature sensors and data transmitters, chip-sized mechanical impedance analyzers, and data processing procedures and integrates them into a self-contained structural health-monitoringpackage for wireless inspection of aerospace-weapons systems.The opportunity:Legacy system maintenance, the development of relatively disposable a ...

  5. Next Generation Hall effect Thruster Concepts

    SBC: Kaufman & Robinson, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The purpose of this proposal is the research and development of low power (about 100 W) close-drift thruster with improved magnetic field. The patented design of the magnetic field makes possible to dramatically reduce the permissible size of aconventional stationary plasma thruster (SPT) that is limited by magnetic saturation of the inner magnetic path. The thruster with our improved magnetic f ...

  6. The Software Therapist: Usability Problem Diagnosis through Latent Semantic Analysis

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE ANALYSIS TECHNOLOGIES, LLC.            Topic: N/A

    Knowledge Analysis Technologies (K-A-T) and Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech) will partner to fulfill this Research and Development effort. We propose an unprecedented suite of Usability Engineering software tools to bebuilt upon the conceptual foundation of Virginia Tech's User Action Framework (UAF). We will use K-A-T's proprietary Latent Semantic Analysis (LS ...

  7. Conductive Polymer Elastomers as Gap Treatment Material for Aircraft

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Air Force maintains a fleet of aircraft that depend on low-observability to successfully carry out their missions. This low-observability depends on a continuity of electrical conductivity at the outer mold line of the aircraft, and thus the panelseams and gaps must be filled with a conducting material. Currently, metal-filled elastomers or resins are used, but these materials suffer from po ...

  8. Development of Silicon Nanocrystals as High Energy White Phosphors

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    72497B03-I Organic, monolayer-stabilized silicon nanocrystals (2 to 10 nm in diameter), with photoluminescence quantum efficiencies exceeding 60%, could prove useful as the emissive phosphor layer in solid-state, light emitting diodes for general illumination purposes. They would offer better lifetimes, color shifts to the visible range, and higher efficiencies than existing phosphors for 380 ...

  9. Graphical Environmental Tools for Application to Gamma-Ray Energy Tracking Arrays

    SBC: RIS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Highly segmented, position-sensitive, germanium detector systems are being developed for nuclear physics research where traditional electronic processing with mixed analog and digital function blocks would be enormously complex and costly. Future systems will be constructed using pipelined processing of high-speed digitized signals, as in the telecommunications industry. This project will use di ...
