  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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Ultra-Low Pinhole Simox

    SBC: IBIS TECHNOLOGY CORP.            Topic: N/A

    A PROGRAM IS PROPOSED TO EVALUATE THE IMPACT OF CHANNELING OF OXYGEN ON BURIED OXIDE XNTEGRITY IN SIMOX MATERIAL. BURIED OXIDE PINHOLEDENSITY AND CRYSTALLOGRAPHIC ORIENTATION RELATED PATTERNS IN BURIED OXIDE PINHOLE MAPS WILL BE EXPLAINED DEPENDING UPON THE IMPLANT ANGLE. THE METHOD BASED ON THE ELECTROYTIC PLATING OF COPPER WILL BE USED TO OBTAIN THE MAPS OF PINHOLES. THIS WORK WILL IMPROVE KNOWL ...

  7. INSTRUMENT SUITE TO MEASURE SPACE & TIME RESOLVED XUV & X-RAYS FROM X-PINCHES

    SBC: SCIENCE RESEARCH LABORATORY, INC            Topic: N/A

    IT IS PROPOSED TO DESIGN, BUILD AND TEST A NOVEL SUITE OF XUV AND X-RAY MEASURING INSTRUMENTS FOR RADIATION FROM X-PINCHES. THIS SUITE WILL OFFER SPACE AND TIME RESOLUTION AND COVER EMISSIONS OVER THE ENTIRE COURSE OF THE IMPLOSION, FROM XUV (100-500 EV) TO SFT X-RAYS (1-10KEV). THE SUITE CONSISTS OF AN X-RAY CRYSTAL SPECTROMETER, AN X-RAY PINHOLE CAMERA AND AN XUV PINHOLE CAMERA. THE BASIC DETECT ...

  8. Space and Time Resolved Measurements of Current and Electron Density Profiles Around High Current Z-Pinches

    SBC: SCIENCE RESEARCH LABORATORY, INC            Topic: N/A

    IT IS PROPOSED TO USE A SENSITIVE LASER PROBE BEAM TO MEASURE, VIA BEAM REFRACTION AND FARADAY ROTATION, THE PLASMA DENSITIES AND MAGNETIC FIELDS (HENCE CURRENT PROFILES) AROUND HIGH CURRENT Z-PINCHES. DURING PHASE I, A SIMPLE VERSION OF THE PROPOSED LASER METROLOGY TOOL, USING MANY COMPONENTS ALREADY AVAILABLE AT SRL, WILL BE VALIDATED BY MEASURING THE -0.5 MA CURRENTS (100-300 T MAGNETIC FIELDS) ...
