  1. A THERMAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM FOR A THERMOPHOTOVOLTAIC/GENERALPURPOSE HEAT SOURCE POWER SUPPLY

    SBC: THERMACORE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DIRECT ENERGY CONVERSION EMPLOYING GALLIUM-ANTIMONY THERMOPHOTOVOLTAIC (TPV) CELLS CAN ACHIEVE CONVERSION EFFICIENCIES AND SPECIFIC POWER (W/KG) ABOUT TWICE AS HIGH AS THE ACHIEVABLE EFFICIENCIES AND SPECIFIC POWER FOR THERMOELECTRIC CONVERSION. ON THE OTHER HAND, THERMOPHOTOVOLTAIC CELLS MUST OPERATE BELOW 350 K, VERSUS 550 K FOR THERMOELECTRIC CELLS. THE REDUCED OPERATING TEMPERATURE INCREASES T ...

  2. A POROUS METAL HEAT EXCHANGER TO COOL A MICROWAVE CAVITY

    SBC: THERMACORE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE POWER OUTPUT OF GYROTRONS USED IN THE FUSION PROGRAM IS LIMITED BY THE COOLING OF THE MICROWAVE CAVITY. EXISTING DESIGNS CAN EXTRACT A HEAT FLUX OF 1 TO 3 KW/CM(2). THE RUSSIANS HAVE REPORTED A FLUX OF 4 TO 5 KW/CM(2) USING POROUS METAL HEAT TRANSFER. POROUS METAL HEAT TRANSFER USES A THIN POROUS LAYER OF METAL POWDER UNDER A FACESHEET, WHICH IS BONDED TO A COOLANT SUPPLY/REMOVAL PLATE. THE LA ...

  3. A TORSIONAL RHEOMETER FOR MEASURING THE PROPERTIES OF COAL AND COAL SLURRIES

    SBC: Viscoustech Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE PROCESSES AND EQUIPMENT FOR HANDLING SOLIDS AND SLURRIES ARE QUITE INEFFICIENT WHEN COMPARED WITH EQUIPMENT THAT HANDLES LIQUIDS AND GASES. THIS IS LARGELY BECAUSE DESIGNERS DO NOT CLEARLY UNDERSTAND THE BEHAVIOR OF GRANULAR SOLIDS AND SLURRIES SUCH AS COAL-WATER SLURRIES. IN PHASE I OF THIS PROJECT, A TORSIONAL RHEOMETER THAT CAN BE USED TO MEASURE THE MATERIAL PROPERTIES OF GRANULAR SOLIDS S ...

  4. ICING MONITORING EQUIPMENT

    SBC: JONAS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A SIX MONTH PROGRAM TO DEVELOP A RUGGED NEW DEVICE FOR MONITORING THE ONSET OF ICE FORMATION ON SURFACES OF TRANSPORTATION VEHICLES, ROADS, BRIDGES AND AIRCRAFTS, WILL BE DEVELOPED AND A PROTOTYPE WILL BE LABORATORY TESTED. THE NOVEL GAGE AND ELECTRONIC SYSTEM IS PARTLY BASED ON THE TECHNOLOGY APPLIED TO MEASURE CONDUCTIVITY OF SOLUTIONS. BASED ON EXISTING TECHNOLOGY, AND ALREADY TESTED UNDER HIGH ...

  5. DEVICE TO UPRIGHT FALLEN WASTE CANISTERS AT THE WVDP

    SBC: Madison Engineering            Topic: N/A

    WE HAVE FORMULATED A DESIGN CONCEPT FOR A PASSIVE MECHANICAL GRAPPLING DEVICE TO UPRIGHT FALLEN CANISTERS OF THE TYPE USED AT THE WEST VALLEY DEMONSTRATION PROJECT (WVDP). IN A PROCESS ENVIRONMENT SUCH AS THAT OF WVDP, SYSTEMS COMPONENTS, THEMSELVES, ULTIMATELY BECOME RADIOACTIVE WASTE. AS SUCH, THOSE COMPONENTS MUST PERFORM RELIABLY FOR THE DURATION OF THE PROJECT. REPLACEMENT OF FAULTY COMPONENT ...

  6. CUSTOM MULTIELEMENT P-I-N DETECTOR SYSTEMS

    SBC: Microtronics Assoc., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    U. S. SEMICONDUCTOR TECHNOLOGY FOR DEVICE FABRICATION IS HIGHLY DEVELOPED, BUT IT IS NOT WELL COUPLED TO THE NEEDS OF THE DOE HIGH ENERGY PHYSICS PROGRAM. THE RESEARCH PROPOSED HEREIN WOULD ADDRESS THAT PROBLEM BY PUTTING US IN A POSITION TO CREATE (UNDER PHASE 2) A COMMERCIAL INTERFACE BETWEEN THE HIGH ENERGY PHYSICS COMMUNITY AND U.S. INDUSTRIAL SEMICONDUCTOR TECHNOLOGY. THE PROPOSED RESEARCH RE ...

  7. IMMUNODIAGNOSTIC BIOSENSOR DEVICE BASED ON CONDUCTIVE ORGANIC POLYMERS

    SBC: Mkm Research/ohmicron            Topic: N/A

    IN THE PAST FEW YEARS THERE HAS BEEN A GREAT DEAL OF INTEREST IN CONDUCTING ORGANIC POLYMERS, SUCH AS POLYACETYLENE AND ITS DERIVATIVES. THESE NEW MATERIALS HAVE AROUSED MUCH EXCITMENT BECAUSE OF POTENTIAL APPLICATIONS IN BATTERIES, AS LIGHT-WEIGHT ELECTRICAL CONDUCTORS, AND IN PHOTOVOLTAIC DEVICES. MKM RESEARCH/OHMICRON IS THE FIRST ORGANIZATION TO ESTABLISH RESEARCH PRIORITY (BASED ON U.S. PATEN ...
