  1. Advanced nanocomposite scintillator for gamma radiation detection

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: DTRA08005

    Until now gamma radiation detection has required large single crystals of sensitive materials that are difficult to produce consistently on an industrial scale. In collaboration with a research group at the University of Texas at Arlington, Agiltron proposes to develop a new class of nanocomposite scintillator materials. The radiation detection characteristics of the synthetic nanoparticles in the ...

  2. Improvements in Scintillation Technology for Detection of Nuclear Radiation

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA07004

    High-resolution scintillation crystals and crystal arrays are important components of current and future handheld and arrayed detectors (used for DOD/DTRA applications), and scintillation spectrometers (routinely used in high energy physics research, medical imaging, diffraction, homeland security, nuclear waste clean-up, nuclear treaty verification and safeguards, and geological exploration). Un ...

  4. High Performance Dielectrics for High Energy Density Capacitors

    SBC: Aspen Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Aspen Systems proposes to develop high dielectric constant (K), low loss tellurium polymers to meet the design objectives of high energy density capacitors. In the proposed Phase I program we will apply rigorous computational chemical techniques to predict the properties of this new class of polymers. We will attempt the synthesis of the parent polymer of the tellurium family, fabricate films for ...

  5. IMPROVED SIMOX SOI BY INDEPENDENT CONTROL OF BEAM CURRENT DENSITY AND WAFER IMPLANT TEMPERATURE

    SBC: IBIS TECHNOLOGY CORP.            Topic: N/A

    THE BUILT-IN BURIED OXIDE OF SIMOX SOI MATERIAL HAS PROMOTED RECENT ADVANCES IN RADIATION-HARDENED, AEROSPACE, AUTOMTIVE, AND COMMUNICATIONS APPLICATIONS. A SIGNIFCANT ISSUE RELATED TO THE USE OF SIMOX TECHNOLOGY IS THE CAPABILITY OF THE SI AND BURIED OXIDE LAYERS TO SUPPORT ADBANCED CMOS AND BIPOLAR CIRCUITRY. RECENT TECHNIQUES FOR SILICON AND BURIED OXIDE DEFECT DENSITY MEASUREMENTS SHOW THAT FU ...

  7. DYNAMIC SCENE PROJECTOR FOR THE UV-THROUGH-LWIR SPECTRAL BANDS

    SBC: Optron Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A DYNAMIC SCENE PROJECTION SYSTEM IS PROPOSED WHICH CAN SIMULATE MULTI-SPECTRAL SCENES IN THE ULTRAVIOLET, VISIBLE, AND NEAR-THROUGH LONG-WAVE INFRARED WAVELENGTH BANDS. IT IS BASED ON ALIGHT VALVE TECHNOLOGY WHICH USES CRT ELECTRNICS TO DRIVA A DENSE ARRAY OF DEFORMABLE MIRRORS. THIS LIGHT VALVE, CALLED AN ELECTRON BEAM-ADDRESSED MEMBRANCE MIRROR LIGHT MODULATOR (EMLM), IS A MATURING TECHNOLOGY W ...

  8. ION BEAM DEPOSITED FERROELECTRIC MEMORY FILMS

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    COMPUTER MEMORY ARRAYS ARE EXTREMELY VULNERABLE TO ELECTROMAGNETIC DISTURBANCES RESULTING FROM ACCIDENTAL OR HOSTILE ACTIONS. HARDENING AGAINST SUCH EFFECTS CAN BE IMPARTED EITHER BY ADDING EXTERNAL PROTECTION TO EXISTING SYSTEMS OR BY INCORPORATING SURVIVABILITY IN NEW DESIGNS. INHERENT HARDNESS CAN BE IMPARTED TO RANDOM ACCESS MEMORY ARRAYS BY USING THIN FILM FERROELECTRIC MATERIALS AS MEMORY EL ...

  9. HIGH FREQUENCY AIRBLAST PRESSURE SENSOR FOR UGT MEASUREMENTS

    SBC: GEO-CENTERS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    CONVENTIONAL INSTRUMENTATION FOR AIRBLAST PRESSURE MEASUREMENTS IN CAVITY SHOTS IS LIMITED IN RISE TIME CAPABILITY. THIS RESULTS IN THE INSTRUMENTATION PROVIDING AN INCORRECT INDICATION OF PEAK PRESSURE, WHICH CREATES DISTORTION IN GENERATED HEIGHT-OF-BURST CURVES. THE DEVELOPMENT OF A FIBER OPTIC AIRBLAST PRESSURE SENSOR BASED ON THE PHOTOELASTIC EFFECT IS PROPOSED. THIS TECHNIQUE PROMISES TO PRO ...

  10. DEVELOPMENT OF A DEPTH PROFILING METHOD FOR USE WITH A TOTAL REFLECTANCE X-RAY FLOURESCENCE SYSTEM

    SBC: IBIS TECHNOLOGY CORP.            Topic: N/A

    SIMOX MATERIAL IS RAPIDLY BECOMING THE SOI MATERIAL OF CHOICE FOR MANY IC APPLICATIONS, INCLUDING RADIATION HARDENED. A CONSTANT THEME OF CONCERN THROUGHOUT THE DEVELOPMENT OF THIS TECHNOLOGY HAS BEEN THE METALLIC IMPURITY CONTENT IN THE MATERIAL. MAJOR EFFORTS HAVE ADDRESSED THE ELIMINATION OF THE METALLIC CONTAMINATION BY MODIFICATION OF THE IMPLANTATION EQUIPMENT USED TO FABRICATE SIMOX MATERIA ...
