  1. Zinc Oxide-based Spintronic Devices

    SBC: ZN TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: AF03T020

    Zinc oxide is a versatile material, with a wide direct band gap (~3.3eV) with the potential for highly efficient light emitters and detectors, very high radiation hardness, and has high electromechanical coupling coefficients. In addition, transition metal doped ZnO has potential for sprintronics applications. This project will develop the mechanisms for realization of new spintronics devices ba ...

  2. Wireless Strain Gage

    SBC: SAN DIEGO RESEARCH CENTER, INC.            Topic: AF05T004

    San Diego Research Center (SDRC) teamed with the University of Rhode Island's (URI) Thin Film Research Center group led by Dr. Otto Gregory will determine the feasibility of a passive wireless transponder-based solution to the wireless strain requirement. Our unique and novel solution is based on a passive microwave circuit deposited directly on the engine fan blade. The passive RF transponder ...

  4. Wireless Sensing for In-Situ Impact and Damage Location in Anisotropic Aerospace Structures

    SBC: Nextgen Aeronautics, Inc.            Topic: AF08BT27

    The ability to quickly and inexpensively detect and identify incipient damage in aerospace structural components before catastrophic failure occurs has become a pressing need for the Air Force. Acoustic emission technologies have been explored extensively over the last 30 years for NDE and structural health monitoring applications, but significant limitations exist in practically implementing this ...

  5. Wire Insulation Incorporating Self-Healing Polymers (WIISP)

    SBC: Nextgen Aeronautics, Inc.            Topic: T601

    NextGen Aeronautics, Inc. and their partner, Virginia Tech, propose to develop a self-healing material for wire insulation using a class of poly(ethylene-co-methacrylic acid) (EMAA) and poly(tetramethylene oxide) ionomer polymers. The self-healing property of these materials is strongly correlated with the thermal processes that occur during and after damage initiation. Recent experimental result ...

  6. Windable Lithium-ion Conducting Ceramic Electrolytes

    SBC: Chemat Technology, Inc.            Topic: A09AT011

    Lithium-air battery consists of a lithium anode electrochemically coupled to atmospheric oxygen through an air cathode. The major advantages of lithium air batteries are that air cathode active material, oxygen, is not stored internal to cell system and lithium anode being extremely lightweight metal with a highest theoretical specific energy density. This energy density is well comparable with t ...

  7. Wideband Tunable Bandstop Filters Based on High Reliability MEMS Varactors

    SBC: Freeform Wave Technologies, LLC            Topic: N11AT016

    Co-site interference is a common source of jamming aboard naval vessels where several high power systems such as radars and electronic warfare equipment are co-located on same mast or in close vicinity of communication systems. High power transmissions from these systems act as local source of jamming and can be disruptive to the function of the communication radios also operating in the same envi ...

  9. Wide Angle Neutron Spin Echo Device

    SBC: ADELPHI TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: 12a

    The Neutron Spin Echo (NSE) method has provided unique information about the dynamics of soft materials, including confirmation of the de Gennes model of polymer reptation, and quantitative measurement of the bending constants of various membranes. In almost all cases these measurements have been made at small neutron scattering angles, where structural correlations with length scales between 10 n ...

  10. Wide Bandgap Material and Device Development

    SBC: SP3 CORP.            Topic: MDA04T018

    The purpose of the proposed research is to develop GaN molecular beam epitaxy on diamond substrates up to 3 inches in diameter. This unique substrate/epilayer combination will provide electronic materials suitable for high-power and opto-electronic devices without the commonly observed limitations due to the production of excess heat during device operation. The resulting devices will have built- ...
