  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. Fuel Cells for Arms Control Applications

    SBC: VIATRONIX            Topic: N/A

    Future efforts to verify arms control agreements will require new technologies that are self-contained and man-portable. Potable power will, of course, be needed to energize and maintain this equipment in an unattended mode. Fuel cells offer the bestalternative for these power requirements, because of their high energy and power density. Unfortunately, there is no current fuel cell technology t ...

  6. Automated Secondary Phase Detection Using Wavelet Techniques

    SBC: Weston Geophysical Corp.            Topic: N/A

    "The primary objective of this proposed research is to develop a new detector that uses the wavelet transform for accurate, reliable and automatic detection of secondary phases such as Pg, Lg, and pPn. We propose to extend the semi-automatic waveletdetector of Tibuleac and Herrin (1999) to an automatic, multi-component detector for use on both single-component array data as well as three-componen ...

  7. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
