  2. Failure Avoidance in Microelectronics Due to Coefficient of Thermal Expansion (CTE) Mismatch of Substrates and Adhesives

    SBC: GLOBAL ENGINEERING RESEARCH AND TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: MDA14T002

    The reliability of electronic packages is of paramount concern in todays electronics industry, and ensuring their thermomechanical integrity is necessary to achieve this reliability. However, this task has become more challenging with miniaturization and the introduction of new materials. Thermal stresses in electronic packages continue to be one of the leading causes of device failure. The pro ...

  3. Additive Manufacturing Plastic Materials with Improved Dielectric Breakdown Strength

    SBC: Ventana Research Corporation            Topic: AF15AT07

    ABSTRACT: Three dimensional (3-D) printing is a robust and facile means for rapidly producing complex geometry prototype electrical insulators. Unfortunately, these techniques are limited towards producing insulators suitable for low voltage applications (e.g. electric field applications < 20 KV/mm ) given current 3-D printed material shortcomings coupled with possible introduction of macroscopic ...

  4. Compact Passive Millimeter Wave Sensor for GPS-denied Navigation

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT26

    ABSTRACT: Under the proposed effort, PSI will leverage a novel pmmW imaging technology developed under a prior Navy program to realize the low size, weight, and power sensors required for UAV implementation. This technology is based on an optical upconverted distributed aperture technology that can make use of the full aperture of the aircraft thereby maximizing achievable resolution. This sensor ...

  5. The Replacement of Chromium Electroplate for High Wear/High Temperature Applications

    SBC: Physics, Materials, and Applied Mathematics Research L.L.C.            Topic: AF15AT31

    ABSTRACT: This proposal translates a non-toxic, aqueous-based, near room temperature electrodeposition process to completely eliminate Cr (VI) for the production of wear and corrosion resistant surfaces on high-strength steel. Specifically, our process will produce adherent and crack-free Re-based coatings that are extremely high-temperature (Tm of Re = 3180oC), lubricious, wear-resistant, and cor ...

  6. Snapshot Imaging Laser Displacement Sensor for Hypervelocity Diagnostic Testing

    SBC: CONTROL VISION INC            Topic: AF15AT38

    ABSTRACT: The Air Force is interested in hypersonic (M>5) systems that enable time-critical missions for strike and Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance (ISR). Perhaps more so than for any other flight regime, precise and accurate sensing of key phenomena is difficult without contaminating the data being collected. Control Vision, Inc has developed unique optical profilometry technology whic ...

  7. Powerful Source of Collimated Coherent Infrared Radiation with Pulse Duration Fewer than Ten Cycles

    SBC: NP Photonics, Inc.            Topic: A14AT006

    Few-cycle mid-infrared lasers are in high demand for a variety of practical applications including remote sensing of chemical and biological species. NP Photonics and the University of Arizona propose to develop a wavelength tunable and power-scalable optical parametric laser system covering 8-10 micron and capable of producing collimated few-cycle pulses with pulse energy > 100 microjoules. A ful ...

  8. Modeling of Integrally Bladed Rotor (IBR) Blends

    SBC: Optimal Solutions Software, LLC            Topic: N13AT002

    The main goal of Phase II is to validate the Phase I prototype and develop an integrated design and analysis tool for assessing large damage and blends for compressor IBRs on gas turbine engines and other blade systems. This tool will have at its core the automated analytical modeling of as-measured or as-expected airfoil blends for the structural and aero response to the shape change due to blend ...

  9. Improved Flotation Separation of Rare Earth Ore

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: OSD12T01

    A critical step in the extraction of elements from ore, especially rare earth elements that are found in complex minerals, is separation. Froth flotation is a highly versatile method for physically separating particles based on differences in the ability of air bubbles to selectively adhere to specific mineral surfaces in a mineral/water slurry. The particles with attached air bubbles are then ca ...

  10. Robust Mid-IR Optical Fibers

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: AF15AT02

    ABSTRACT: The development of mid-infrared (Mid-IR) transparent fibers having low propagation loss in the wavelength range 2-5 micron, robust mechanical properties, low temperature sensitivity and high laser power delivery capability has been investigated extensively in the last decade. Chalcogenide glass fibers, fluoride glass fibers, tellurite glass fibers, and microstructured silica fibers have ...
