  1. Wafer Level Supercritical Carbon Dioxide-Based Metal Deposition for Microelectronic Applications

    SBC: MiCell Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 04NCERP1

    This research project involves the application, development, and commercial scale up of a process for the deposition of copper and copper barrier materials such as ruthenium, titanium, and other metals. This process could replace copper electroplating currently used to fill deep trenches and thin-film deposition in microelectronic circuit manufacturing. In addition, physical vapor depo ...

  2. Automated Computational Fluid Dynamics Design With Shape Optimization

    SBC: Optimal Solutions Software, LLC            Topic: A405

    Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is used as an analysis tool to help the designer gain greater understanding of the fluid flow phenomena involved in the components being designed. The next step in the design process is to modify the design to improve the components performance, typically performed manually by the designer in a trial and error fashion. The innovations proposed herein will provide ...

  3. Cryogenic Cooling System for Zero-Venting Storage of Supercritical Air Packs

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: F302

    Supercritical air at cryogenic temperature is an attractive source of breathing air because of its very high density and low pressure. However, heat leak into the cryogenic tank causes the stored air to expand and vent, thus limiting the storage life of a charged system. We propose to develop a storage system for supercritical air packs that provides cryogenic cooling that will enable long-term ...

  4. Thermal Management of Superconducting Electromagnets in VASIMR Thrusters

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: F701

    The Variable Specific Impulse Magnetoplasma Rocket (VASIMR) engine currently being developed at NASA Johnson is an attractive technology for minimizing transit time and crew harm during future space exploration missions. One of the critical challenges in developing a flight engine is thermal management of the high-temperature, superconducting electromagnets used to constrain and accelerate the pl ...

  5. Lightweight, High-Temperature Radiator Panels

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: F309

    Lightweight, high-temperature radiators are needed for future, high-efficiency power conversion systems for Nuclear Electric Propulsion (NEP). Creare has developed flexible radiators that are extremely lightweight, stowable in small volumes, and deployable with small forces, but are limited by materials to temperatures below 350 K. These novel radiators incorporate integral micrometeorite protect ...

  6. Carbon Nanotube Based Electric Propulsion Thruster with Low Power Consumption

    SBC: XINTEK, INC.            Topic: A502

    Field emission electric propulsion (FEEP) thrusters have gained considerable attention for spacecrafts disturbance compensation because of excellent characteristics. The application of current FEEP has been slow in developing mainly caused by high specific power, which limit the milli-Newton thruster development due to insufficient onboard power. Dramatic field improvement from nanometer carbon ...

  8. 3 Dimensional Nano-Scale Reinforcement Architecture for Advanced Composite Structures

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: AF04T020

    Three-dimensional woven and braided fiber architectures provide important advantages to composites, including suppression of delamination, high damage tolerance, improved through-the-thickness properties, simplicity and cost-effectiveness of manufacturing complex composite structural components. However, in order to diversify applications and reach high volumes of utilization of these materials in ...

  9. Analysis Tools for Detection and Diagnosis of Biological Threats

    SBC: ALPHA-GAMMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: CBD04113

    DNA microarray technology, in combination with statistical and predictive modeling tools, could be used to evaluate thousands of genes against distinct gene expression patterns induced by chemical/biological agents to provide early identification and speed therapeutic intervention. The overall objective of this Phase II effort is to leverage existing public domain resources and commercial tools t ...
