  1. Solid Freeform Fabrication of low cost, in situ, metallic foam components for high energy absorption applications

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In the phase I program, Advanced Ceramics Research, Inc. (ACR) fabricated in situ metallic foams by using a unique water-soluble polymer blend and ACR's Extrusion Freeform Fabrication (EFF) method. When the green parts were heated for binder burnout, thebinder was found to foam and create uniform closed, high-aspect ratio porosity. The freeform fabrication also could create open porosity ranging f ...

  2. High Sensitivity Rugged Array Detectors for Field Deployed Instruments: Low-Light Level Camera for Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) and Ram

    SBC: B & W Tek Inc.            Topic: A06065

    Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) and Raman spectroscopy are developing rapidly for chemical and biochemical sensing applications. There is an urgent need for high-sensitivity detectors so as to minimize sample quantity and maximize detection range from the source. In most field-deployable spectrometers, a photo-detector array is used for analyzing the spectral contents. The sensitivitie ...

  5. Electromagnetic-Based Computer Aided Design (CAD) for Wavelength Scale Optics

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: N/A

    A nearly universal trend in modern technology is the continued integration of systems, and their associated devices, on decreasingly smaller scales. While this has led to personal computers that offer more functionality and faster computational speeds, ithas also spurred the development of hybrid optoelectronic systems on a chip (SOCs). Currently, such SOCs are receiving significant interest fro ...

  7. SiC-Based High Energy Laser Optics

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    SiC-based materials exhibit excellent thermal, mechanical, and optical properties. In addition, excellent polishability has been established for CVD-SiC. The use of CVD-SiC in optical applications requires the joining of dissimilar materials. Thisproposal offers an integrated approach to fabricate optical structures. No conventional joining is required. Ultralightweight, extremely stable stru ...

  10. A Process to In-Situ Form Cooling Channels in SiC/SiC Composite Turbine Blades and Nozzles

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: A07012

    Ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) such as SiC/SiC offer higher temperature capabilities than metals with cooling channels in turboshaft engines. Even higher operating temperatures are possible if cooling channels can be produced in SiC/SiC composites as well as silicon free environmental barrier coatings (EBC). The Phase I program demonstrated that cooling channels can be in-situ formed in the fa ...
