  1. Heterogeneously Structured Conductive Resin Matrix/Graphite Fiber Composites for High Thermally Conductive Structural Applications

    SBC: KAI, LLC            Topic: AF10BT01

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this project is to design and fabricate tailored thermal interface and continuous paths among nanoscale conductive fillers and filler/graphite fiber to promote effective phonon transport along through-thickness direction. The goal is to realize at least 100 fold increase of Kz from 0.2 to 20+ W/mK in graphite fiber composites. Meanwhile, we will study to construct chemi ...

  2. Optical Cryocooling for Space-borne Sensors

    SBC: N.P. PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: AF10BT02

    ABSTRACT: We propose to develop a light weight, compact, vibration-less and micro-scale cooler for space-mission conditions based on optical refrigeration using an all-fiber approach. Specifically, we will use a Tm+3-doped fiber laser to pump Tm+3-doped glass fibers, which provide the cooling action on the affixed heat source. The cooling fiber is attached to the heating sample e.g., EO-IR detect ...

  3. Foldable/Rollable High Efficiency Solar Cell Modules

    SBC: OPTICOMP NETWORKS, INC.            Topic: AF10BT05

    ABSTRACT: A new method for manufacturing thin, flexible, portable high efficiency III-V PV modules that can be folded and rolled. In particular, IMM3J cells are lifted-off their growth substrate and transferred to a polyimide blanket sheet holding up to a few hundred cells. They are fully encapsulated. The interconnects are made with novel use of electrically conductive adhesives and polymers. Th ...

  4. High Efficiency Flexible Photovoltaics

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: AF10BT05

    ABSTRACT: Recent advances in manufacturing in Inverted Metamorphic Multi-junction (IMM) cells have opened new terrestrial opportunities that demand high specific power as a key enabling component. Originally designed for space applications, IMM photovoltaics have a high overall power conversion efficiency (>30%) which compares favorably to amorphous silicon, CIGS and bulk heterojunction photovolt ...

  5. RF Microplasma for Ozone Generation

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF10BT08

    ABSTRACT: Ozone generation for decontamination systems has been around for many decades but systems, such as dielectric barrier discharge (DBD), are not suited to field use and the high voltages employed present serious safety problems. RF-driven microplasma devices are a unique technology for low-cost and low-power-voltage plasmas in vacuum and in air up to atmospheric pressure with a number of ...

  6. A Novel, Flexible, and Comprehensive System for Mission Prioritized Lossless Data Compression

    SBC: Signal Processing, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT10

    ABSTRACT: The test and evaluation (T & E) mission in complex test facilities results in large amounts of data. Moreover, the data may have different characteristics, including images from particle image velocimetry data, air flow data, etc. Finally, some of the data may come from a network of similar sensors. We propose a novel, flexible, and comprehensive system for mission prioritized lossless ...
