  3. Organic Solar Cells Using Star Conductive Polymers

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A new class of organic photovoltaics is proposed based on star conducting polymers. These materials will provide superior hole and/or electron transfer properties that determine the ultimate efficiency of the devices. The star polymer architecture employslinear conjugated arms radiating from a centrosymmetric core, and therfore, unlike the linear arms alone, facilitate carrier transport in three d ...

  5. High-Damping Composite Materials for Advanced Aerospace Structures

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The innovation addressed in this proposal is an advanced composite material that provides a high degree of damping with little sacrifice of stiffness or strength. By integrating the functions of load-bearing and vibration suppression, this high-dampingcomposite material (HDCM) will enable the elimination of parasitic structural components. This simplification will improve the reliability of stru ...

  6. Passive Structural Vibration Damping with Ferromagnetic Shape Memory Alloys

    SBC: RCT Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed Phase I will explore the application of composites of polymer and ferromagnetic shape memory alloys (FSMAs) to passive structural vibration damping. The large hysteresis present in the stress-strain behavior of NiMnGa, a ferromagnetic shapememory alloy (FSMA), and other shape memory alloys (SMAs) suggests that both FSMAs and SMAs have the potential to dissipate mechanical energy more ...

  7. Intelligent Record Linkage Techniques Based on Information Retrieval, Natural Language Processing, and Machine Learning

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The sheer magnitude of information available online via the Internet has overwhelmed the ability of existing search tools to produce useful query responses. Current web-search techniques typically fail to correlate relevant documents that areidentified in different ways, such as synonyms and acronyms. The challenge is to find an approach that can obtain highly accurate matches even ...

  8. Modeling and Closed-Loop Control of Complex Flows Over Aerodynamic Surfaces

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The use of active flow control can reduce or eliminate the number of aerodynamic control surfaces in aircraft. Elimination of control surfaces results in a reduction of weight and drag, as well as radar observability. Recent advances in MicroElectromechanical Systems (MEMS) technology have rendered it a feasible alternative for unsteady flow sensing and control. This project will be performed join ...
