  4. LOW COST ACOUSTIC SENSORS SUITABLE FOR HIGH DENSITY ARRAY DEPLOYMENT

    SBC: Optiphase, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    OUR PROPOSAL DEFINES A DETAILED APPROACH TO DEVELOP A HIGH DENSITY ACOUSTIC ARRAY TO MONITOR AMBIENT ACOUSTIC CONDITIONS. WE PROPOSE AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH INVOLVING PASSIVE INTERROGATION OF FIBER OPTIC INTERFEROMETRIC SENSORSWHICH REQUIRE NO ELECTRONICS TO OPERATE THE TELEMETRY OR SENSORS. THE PROPOSED CONFIGURATION UTILIZING RUGGED SILICAMATERIALS IS CAPABLE OF HIGH ACCURACY OVER SEVERE ENVIRONM ...

  5. HOLOGRAPHIC DIAGNOSTICS FOR RAPID SOLIDIFICATION PROCESSING & OSPREY RESEARCH

    SBC: STRATONICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    VARIOUS TYPES OF RAPID SOLIDIFICATION PROCESSES, RSP, ARE CRITICAL AEROSPACE TECHNOLOGIES SUPPORTING THE TRANSITION FROM NICKEL BASED SUPERALLOYS TO BIMETALLIC ALLOYS. PULSED LASER HOLOGRAPHY OFFERS THE POTENTIAL FOR RESOLVING THE MICROSCOPIC DETAILS OF RSP ATOMIZATION, OSPREY, AND PLASMA DEPOSITION PROCESSES; THEREBY PROVIDING INFORMATION TO IMPROVE AND CONTROL THE PROCESS. DESIRABLE ASPECTS OF P ...

  10. NON-DESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION OF IMPURITIES AND DEFECTS IN ULTRA-THIN SEMICONDUCTOR FILMS

    SBC: Aracor            Topic: N/A

    THE SCANNING PHOTOVOLTAGE (SPV) TECHNIQUE IS A NON-DESTRUCTIVE, HIGH RESOLUTION OPTICAL METHOD FOR MAPPING ELECTRICALLY-ACTIVE DEFECTS IN SEMICONDUCTORS. THE POTENTIAL OF THE SPV TECHNIQUE HAS NOT BEEN REALIZED FOR MODERN, ULTRA-THIN FILM MATERIALS, HOWEVER, BECAUSE OF MULTIPLE REFLECTION INTERFERENCE EFFECTS WHICH MASK THE DEFECT-RELATED SIGNALS. MEASUREMENTS ARE FURTHER HAMPERED BY LOW SIGNAL-TO ...
