  1. Rapid Assessment of Particle Hygroscopic Growth

    SBC: Aerosol Dynamics Inc.            Topic: 19c

    One of the key parameters affecting the role of atmospheric aerosols in global climate is aerosol hygroscopicity, which describes the water uptake of aerosol particles. Hygroscopicity affects the scattering of light by individual particles; it is important to heterogeneous chemical transformations; and it plays a significant role in the formation and microphysical properties of clouds, all of whi ...

  2. Aerosol Size Distributions for UAV Platforms

    SBC: Aerosol Dynamics Inc.            Topic: 19a

    The size-dependent concentration of airborne particles plays a critical role in the direct scattering and absorption of light, and in the physical characteristics, lifetime and spatial extent of clouds. These factors affect the earth’s radiation balance, and hence climate. Yet these effects are not adequately quantified, in part because of insufficient data on the size and concentration of atmos ...

  9. High-Dimensional Compressive Scanning Transmission Electron Microscopy

    SBC: Integrated Dynamic Electron Solutions, Inc.            Topic: 07a

    While modern transmission electron microscopy (TEM) is an incredibly powerful tool for nanoscience and biology, in terms of information theory it is extremely inefficient; the information obtained per electron striking the sample is a small fraction of what information theory says it could be. Not only does this slow down data acquisition, it also greatly increases the radiation dose to ...

  10. Reinforced Radiation Resistant SiC-SiC Composites for Nuclear Reactors and Fuel Cladding

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: 08b

    Limitations of the existing nuclear grade SiC composites as applied to high-performance nuclear systems include difficulty joining complex geometries and instability of those joints under irradiation, poor initial thermal conductivity and significant conductivity degradation after irradiation, matrix micro-cracking, and difficulty in producing complex shaped components at low cost. Thus, while ...
