  1. GRAIN GROWTH CONTROL IN THE NET-SHAPE PROCESSING OF NANOSTRUCTURED WC-CO COMPOSITES

    SBC: Nanodyne Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NANOSTRUCTURED WC-CO MATERIALS HAVE THE POTENTIAL FOR REVOLUTIONIZING THE HARDFACING, CUTTING TOOL AND DRILL BIT INDUSTRIES. DRAMATIC IMPROVEMENTS IN MECHANICAL PROPERTIES AND PERFORMANCE HAVE ALREADY BEEN DEMONSTRATED. FURTHER RESEARCH ON DECREASING WC GRAIN SIZE OF THE CONSOLIDATED MATERIAL IS NOW SEEN TO BE OF THE HIGHEST PRIORITY, SINCE ITIS KNOWN THAT WC-CO PROPERTIES IMPROVE SYSTEMATICALLY W ...

  3. LOAD RESPONSIVE HYDROGEN GENERATOR FOR UUV APPLICATION

    SBC: Af Sammer Corp.            Topic: N/A

    A PROGRAM FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A HYDROGEN GENERATOR FOR USE WITH PEM FUEL CELLS IN UUV APPLICATIONS IS PROPOSED. HYDROGEN IS GENERATED BY REACTING ALKALI AND ALKALIEARTH METAL HYDRIDES WITH WATER. PURE HYDROGEN AND ALKALI-ALKALI EARTH METAL OXIDES OR HYDROXIDES ARE FORMED. ENERGY DENSITIES MAY EXCEED 1KWHR/LB OF REACTANTS. GENERATION IS NOT AFFECTED BY VEHICLE POSITION OR MOTION. THE PROPOSED DE ...

  4. MICROCOMPUTER MODEL FOR ASSESSMENT OF FUEL DUMPING IMPACTS

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: N/A

    FUEL JETTISONED BY AIRCRAFT IN FLIGHT MAY POSE AN ENVIRONMENTAL HAZARD. RECENT DECISIONS TO CONVERT FROM JP-4 JET FUEL TO THE LESS VOLATILE JP-8 JET FUEL MEANS THAT THE LIKELIHOOD FOR GROUND ENCOUNTER BY THE JETTISONED FUEL IS SUBSTANTIALLY INCREASED. WHAT IS NEEDED, FOR NOT ONLY THE U.S. AIR FORCE BUT ALSO THE COMMERCIAL AIRLINE INDUSTRY, IS A FULLY OPERATIONAL AND USER-FRIENDLY PERSONAL COMPUTER ...

  5. "SYNTHESIS, CRYSTAL GROWTH AND CHARACTERIZATION OF CSTIOASO4 CRYSTALS FOR OPO APPLICATIONS TO 5 MICRONS"

    SBC: Crystal Associates Inc            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS A NEED FOR OPTICAL CRYSTALS, HAVING LARGE NONLINEAR COEFFICIENTS FOR OPERATION AS OPTICAL PARAMETRIC OSCILLATERS (OPO) IN THE MID IR REGION (1.5 TO 5.0 MICRONS). SINGLE CRYSTALS OF KTIOASO4 (KTA) HAVE BEEN SHOWN TO HAVE SUPERIOR TRANSMISSION IN THIS OPTICAL REGION, HOWEVER, THE PRESENCE OF A DOMAIN STRUCTURE COMPLICATES THE UTILIZATION OF THIS MATERIAL. IN ADDITION THE NONLINEAR PROPERTIE ...

  6. Crystal Growth in KTiOPO(4)-NaTiOPO(4)

    SBC: Crystal Associates Inc            Topic: N/A

    Phase I will study tailoring the refractive index elliposoid of KTP to permit Type II phase matching at wavelengths shorter than 900nm, thereby permitting the SHG of laser diodes and Ti:Al2O3 solid state lasers. The system of solid solutions from mixing KTP with CsTiOPO4 will be studied and crystals grown. The nonlinear optical, mechanical and electrical properties of these crystals will be determ ...

  7. Electroformed High Resolution Thick Metal Film for Hyper-Dense Electronic Packaging

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

    20 microns thick metal film deposits at thin film resolutions will ensure densely integrated MCMs essential to advanced electronic devices such as onboard data and signal processing systems (OBDP). 99.8% dense and 99.8% pure monolithic and environmentally stable copper interconnects in analog applications will remove heat and control impedance with 5-10 times capacity. Two to three times higher ch ...

  8. ON-SITE GENERATION OF PHOSPHINE FOR ELECTRONIC DEVICES

    SBC: Electron Transfer Tech            Topic: N/A

    PHOSPHINE (PH3) IS A GAS NECESSARY FOR MAKING COMPOUND SEMICONDUCTORS SUCH AS INP, INAS(1-X)PX, GAP, AND GAAS(1-X)PX AS WELL AS A DOPANT SOURCE FOR SILICON. IT IS A VERY TOXIC GAS WITH A TLV OF 0.3 PPM. NEW REGULATIONS MAKE THE TRANSPORT, STORAGE, AND HANDLING OF COMPRESSED GAS CYLINDERS OF PHOSPHINE INCREASINGLY DIFFICULT. TO AVOID THESE PROBLEMS, WE ARE DEVELOPING A COMPACT POINT OF USE PHOSPHIN ...

  9. Atomic Layer Epitaxy of GaN in a Multi-Wafer Rotating Disc Reactor

    SBC: EMCORE CORP.            Topic: N/A

    GaN and other III-V nitrides can be used for fabricating visible/UV optoelectronic devices. Sequential exposure of reactants using a commercial microwave Plasma Enhanced Atomic Layer Epitaxy reactor is proposed to grow high quality GaN films. The technique allows two dimensional layer-by-layer growth which reduces nitrogen vacancies commonly observed in the GaN films. PE-ALE also allows deposition ...

  10. LASER ORDNANCE IGNITION SYSTEMS

    SBC: General Fiber Optics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A PROPOSAL IS SET FORTH TO INVESTIGATE, DEVELOP, AND DEMONSTRATE IMPROVED METHODS TO COUPLE LASER ENERGY INTO PROJECTILE WEAPONS FOR INITIATION OF PRIMERS, PROPELLANTS, AND OTHER EXPLOSIVE MEDIA. TO INITIATE A PRIMER, PROPELLANT OR OTHER EXPLOSIVE MEDIA, METHODS TO RELIABLY COUPLE AND DIRECT HIGH ENERGY LASER LIGHT THROUGH THE BREACH ARE NEEDED. TO ALLOW CONTINUED RESEARCH INTO THE OPTIMAL WAVELEN ...
