  2. Field Marshall Simulation Environment

    SBC: Calabazas Creek Research, Inc.            Topic: AF04T006

    High power microwave researchers need multiple, low cost, simulation codes. These codes need to have user interface consistency for common functions and to use the research community’s vocabulary and units in specific technical areas. Access to source code is of enormous benefit to research groups but not possible within the present technical software market. Along with these “usability” iss ...

  8. A Novel Atmospheric Pressure Plasma Chemical Vapor Deposition process for producing RMI/EFI coatings

    SBC: GT Equipment Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF05T028

    Though low pressure plasmas have found wide applications in materials processing and play a key role in manufacturing semiconductor devices, operating the plasma at reduced pressure has several drawbacks. Vacuum systems are expensive and require maintenance. Load locks and robotic assemblies must be used to shuttle materials in and out of vacuum and essentially it is a batch process. Also the size ...
