  1. Crested Tunnel Barriers for Fast, High Density, Nonvolatile Memory Devices

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Crested multi-layer tunnel barriers have been proposed, which offer a revolutionary solution to overcome density to speed trade-offs characteristic of present data storage technologies. Practical implementation of the proposed technology will involve useof thin film materials which are readily manufacturable and CMOS-compatible. A critical need exists for experimental verification of the theoret ...

  2. Real-Time Trajectory Generation for an Autonomous Aero Utility Vehicle with Constraints

    SBC: Aeropath            Topic: N/A

    "This proposal is focused on enhancing and applying the trajectory generationalgorithms originally developed at Caltech to a small free-flight unmannedAero Utility Vehicle (AUV) that is under development with private funding.Our trajectory generation algorithms are based on a combination of nonlinearand optimal control theory, spline theory, and sequential quadraticprogramming. Furthermore, the a ...

  3. Hadamard Transform Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry

    SBC: Biospect, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Multiplexed Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometers, such as the Hadamard Transform TOFMS (HT-TOFMS), show great promise in increasing MS sensitivity and spectral acquisition speed. Multiplexing the ion beam allows multiple ion packets to simultaneously coexistin the instrument flight tube, advantageously changing a pulsed TOF-MS into a continuously operating instrument. The heart of a HT-TOFMS, and t ...

  5. Functional Geopolymer Composites for Structural Ceramic Applications

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: N/A

    "Continuous fiber-reinforced ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) are attractive candidate materials for structural components in military/commercial airframe or engine/turbine components due to their high-temperature mechanical properties. However, currentCMCs have two major limitations that have prevented replacement of current materials, namely (1) very high processing/materials costs and (2) insu ...

  9. Biomimetic Infrared Sensor Array for Real-Time Monitoring

    SBC: CYRANO SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this proposal is to develop a low cost infrared imaging array for the 3-5 micron window. Current infrared imaging sensors are optimized for the 10 micron regime which corresponds to the wavelength emitted by a warm body (e.g. human). Theproposed lower wavelength regime would target hotter sources such as vehicle exhaust or other machinery indicative of human activity without req ...

  10. Ultra-strong Thermally-Stable Grating Fabrication through t

    SBC: D-Star Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Pulse tube cryocoolers are the cutting edge of regenerative cryocooler development. A series of recent improvements (the orifice, various bypass arrangements) have brought pulse tube cooler performance into the range of Stirling and Gifford-McMahon coolers. A bi-directional Ranque/Hilsch vortex tube performs the functions of both heat-rejecting heat exchanger and orifice, offering further improvem ...
