  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. Agent Defeat using a DWA Accelerator

    SBC: Brookhaven Technology Group, Inc.            Topic: DTRA08008

    A new type of compact induction accelerator currently under development at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) promises to increase the average accelerating gradient by at least an order of magnitude over that of existing induction machines. The machine is based on the use of high gradient vacuum insulators and advanced dielectric materials and switches. The system, called the Diel ...

  4. Engineering Models for Damage to Structural Components Subjected to Internal Blast Loading

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: DTRA08006

    Predicting the response of building components to internal detonations is more complex than the corresponding task for external loads because of the more complex loading waveforms which include multiple reflections in the shock phase followed by a long duration pseudostatic loading that depends upon room venting. Add the possibility of additional impulsive loading from primary debris. We propose t ...

  5. Novel Methods to Measure Penetrator Dynamics in Multi-Layer Geometries

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: DTRA07011

    In Phase I of this effort we analyzed the structural response of a BLU 109 during typical penetration events. Based on these finite element results, we proposed and demsonstrated a simple robust concept for a passive penetrator sensor that identifies the material being penetrated and also correlates strongly with its underground trajectory. Such a sensor would obviously provide valuable informatio ...

  6. Batteryless Sensors for Intrusion Detection and Assessment of Threats

    SBC: Anro Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A batteryless and wireless sensor for intrusion detection and assessment of threats which requires no battery, external power or wiring is proposed. These types of sensors derive energy from passing vehicles or persons, and indicate their presence, location, speed, etc., via a self-generated short-range radio signal. These sensors require no maintenance, and can be inconspicuously placed in window ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...
