  1. FUSION OF DEUTERIUM AND LITHIUM NUCLEI IN A PALLADIUM LATTICE

    SBC: A & D Assoc.            Topic: N/A

    THE CLAIM OF FLEISCHMANN AND PONS TO HAVE ACHIEVED "COLD FUSION" IN A PALLADIUM CRYSTAL LATTICE SATURATED WITH LITHIUM HYDRIDE (DEUTERIDE) HAS STIMULATED MUCH DISCUSSION. ALTHOUGH THEY HAVE AN UNEXPLAINED ENERGY SOURCE, THERE EXIST NO SATISFACTORY FUSION MODELS THAT CAN ACCOUNT FOR THEIR OBSERVATIONS. WE PROPOSE TO STUDY THE QUANTUM AND STATISTICAL MECHANICS OF VARIOUS MECHANISMS FOR NUCLEAR FUSIO ...

  2. ACTIVATED METAL DECOY FOR LOW IR SIGNATURE AIRCRAFT

    SBC: Alloy Surfaces Company, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ACTIVATED STEEL FOIL FABRICATED INTO ELEMENTS TO BE PACKAGED AS EXPENDABLE DECOYS HAS SHOWN GOOD PERFORMANCE IN LOW IR SIGNATURE APPLICATIONS. THE PRESENT BATCH PRODUCTION PROCESS FOR THESE FOILS ENTAILS, IN PART, TWENTY HOURS OF FURNACE TREATMENT. A COMBINATION OF NINE SEPARATE OPERATIONS, LOW PRODUCTION RATES AND HIGH LABOR COSTS YIELDS A UNIT MANUFACTURING COST OF MORE THAN $250.00. WE PROPOSE ...

  3. FOVEAL MACHINE VISION SYSTEMS

    SBC: AMHERST SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    MILITARY APPLICATIONS OF COMPUTER VISION SYSTEMS REQUIRE ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE IMPROVEMENT IN CAPACITY AND SPEED OVER CURRENT SYSTEM PERFORMANCE. THE PRINCIPLE OBSTACLES TO HIGHER PERFORMANCE ARE: THE LARGE AMOUNTS OF IMAGE DATA TO BE PROCESSED; IMAGERS UNOPTIMIZED FOR THE VISION TASKS (TARGET DETECTION, CLASSIFICATION, RECOGNITION, IDENTIFICATION AND TRACKING); AND OPEN-LOOP SYSTEM ARCHITECTURE. IN ...

  8. ALUMINUM-GALLIUM-ARSENIDE TOP SOLAR CELL FOR MECHANICAL ATTACHMENT TO A SILICON CONCENTRATOR WITH IMPROVED AMO EFFICIENCY

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    INCREASES IN SOLAR CELL EFFICIENCY CAN BE ACHIEVED WITH TANDEM MULTI-JUNCTION STRUCTURES TO IMPROVE THE PERFORMANCE AND SCALE OF SPACE PHOTOVOLTAIC CONCENTRATORS. THE "TOP SOLAR CELL" TANDEM APPROACH COULD INCREASE ENERGY CONVERSION EFFICIENCY BY AS MUCH AS 100%. A SELF-SUPPORTING ALUMINUM-GALLIUM-ARSENIDE (ALGAAS) TOP SOLAR CELL IS BEING DEVELOPED FOR MECHANICAL ATTACHMENT TO A SILICON CONCENTRAT ...

  9. HIGH TEMPERATURE SURVIVABLE CONTACTS FOR GALLIUM ARSENIDE SPACE SOLAR CELLS

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    EXISTING METALLIC-TYPE CONTACTS ON GALLIUM ARSENIDE (GAAS) HAVE NOT BEEN STABLE AT HIGH TEMPERATURES BECAUSE OF INTERDIFFUSION AND/OR ALLOYING OF THE GAAS TOP LAYER. HIGH TEMPERATURE CONTACTS TO GAAS SPACE PHOTOLTAIC CELLS ARE BEING DEVELOPED BASED ON THE FORMATION OF A HIGHLY-STABLE INTERMEDIATE DEGENERATE SEMICONDUCTOR LAYER BETWEEN THE GAAS AND A HIGH TEMPERATURE METAL ALLOY. THE INTERMEDIATE S ...

  10. THIN CRYSTALLINE INDIUM-PHOSPHIDE ON INSULATING SUBSTRATES

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    UNIFORM LARGE AREA, DEVICE QUALITY INDIUM PHOSPHIDE (INP) EPITAXIAL LAYERS ON INSULATING SUBSTRATES COULD LEAD TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW GENERATION OF PRODUCIBLE, RADIATION-HARDENED MICROELECTRONIC AND OPTOELECTRONIV INTEGRATED CIRCUITS. INP ALLOYS OFFER THE ADVANTAGES OF: PROVEN RESISTANCE TO RADIATION DAMAGE; LOWER SURFACE RECOMBINATION THAN GAAS; HIGH PEAK ELECTRON VELOCITY; AND BANDGAPS THAT ...
