  1. A Novel Cost Effective Method for Growing High Performance Radiation Sensors

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DTRA082007

    Certain lanthanide halides have significantly higher light output than NaI:Tl, the comparison standard for scintillators, plus other important properties, including fast decay times and excellent proportionality. Unfortunately, lanthanide halides grown by traditional melt processes have high production costs and limited availability. Crystals are usually limited to about 5 cm x 5 cm, right cylinde ...

  2. Electromagnetically-Stirred THM Process for Growth of CZT

    SBC: CAPESYM, INC            Topic: DTRA092007

    It is proposed to develop a novel process for growth of high quality CZT crystals for nuclear detection applications. Currently the THM process is the technology of choice for production of high quality CZT crystals. This process, however, suffers from extremely low growth rates. The development effort proposed here will seek to increase the crystal growth rate by 5-10 times the current levels ...

  3. Next Generation in Detection Materials Processing

    SBC: Neotron Inc            Topic: DTRA092007

    Three nuclides are especially useful in detecting thermalized neutrons: helium-3, lithium-6 , and boron-10. Since current demand will deplete reserves of helium-3 in roughly two years, there is a large desire to develop detectors that have the capacity to replace helium-3 tubes. In this proposal we spell out our plan to adapt Neotron''s already developed fission neutron detector into a high effic ...

  4. AN OPTICAL FIBER INTRUSION LOCATION (FIBLOC) SENSOR FOR SURFACE AND SUBSURFACE PERIMETER PROTECTION

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

    THE PROPOSED FIBLOC SENSOR PROVIDES AN ECONOMIC MEANS TO PROTECT, LITERALLY, MILES OF A PREFERRED PERIMETER REGION AGAINST UNAUTHORIZED INTRUSIONS. THE OPTICAL FIBERS EMPLOYED INT HE FIBLOC SENSOR PROPAGATE CW OR PULSED INFRARED LIGHT SIGNALS WHOSE TRANSMISSION AND/OR REFLECTION SENSITIVITY IS AFFECTED BY MECHANICAL PRESSURE SUCH AS WOULD BE PRODUCED BY THE DISTENSION OF SURFACED MOUNTED FIBERS AL ...

  5. FIBER OPTIC GROUND MOTION SENSOR

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

    THE PHASE I EXPERIMENTAL EFFORT WILL DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF A FIELD WORTHY GROUND MOTION SENSOR TO REPLACE PIEZO-ELECTRIC ACCELEROMETERS FOR CONVENTIONAL EXPLOSIVES AND NUCLEAR TESTING. THE OUTPUT SIGNALS OF PIEZO-ELECTRIC ACCELEROMETERS MUST BE INTEGRATED TWICE TO DETERMINE GROUND MOTIONS. THIS PROCESS REDUCES SYSTEM ACCURACY AND MEASUREMENT BANDWIDTH. ADDITIONALLY, AS PIEZO-ELECTRIC SENS ...

  6. DEFECT REDUCTION IN SIMOX WAFERS

    SBC: Spire Corporation            Topic: N/A

    CREATION OF BURIED INSULATING LAYERS IN SILICON WAFERS BY HIGH DOSE OXYGEN IMPLANTATION (SIMOX) HAS GAINED SIGNIFICANT ATTENTION IN THE LAST TWO YEARS. THE SIMOX TECHNOLOGY IS POSITIONED TO BE A PRIME CONTENDER IN THE SILICON-ON-INSULATOR (SOI) ARENA MAINLY BECAUSE OF THE INHERENT RELIABILITY/REPRODUCIBILITY OF THE ION IMPLANTATION TECHNOLOGY. ONE OBSTACLE TO BROADER USE OF THE SIMOX MATERIAL IS T ...

  7. OF NUCLEAR STORAGE FACILITIES

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

    SINCE 1975, THE USAF HAS DEVELOPED THROUGH ITS FUZING BRANCH, EGLIN AFB, A NEW CLASS OF PROXIMITY DETECTORS KNOWN AS BASEBAND REFLECTOMETER (BAR) SYSTEMS. IN ADDITION TO HAVING EXCELLENT RESOLUTION (E.G.LESS THAN A FOOT), BAR SYSTEMS HAVE BEEN MADE IMMUNE TO MANY FORMS OF JAMMING AND HAVE BEEN USED AS ALTIMETERS IN TARGET ACTIVATED MUNITIONS(TAM) APPLICATIONS AS WELL AS SENSORS FOR PROXIMITY FUZES ...

  8. MEASUREMENTS

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

    A FIBER OPTIC PRESSURE SENSOR BASED ON THE PHOTOELASTIC EFFECT IS DISCUSSED. DUE TO INTRINSIC IMMUNITY TO ELECTROMAGNETIC INTERFERENCE,THE FIBER OPTIC SENSOR OFFERS THE PROMISE OF FUNDAMENTAL IMPROVEMENT RELIABILITY. A POLARIMETRIC SENSING TECHNIQUE MINIMIZES THE EFFECTS OF RADIATION DAMAGE TO FIBERS. THE SENSOR EXPLOITS THE CHANGES IN INDEX OF REFRACTION PRODUCED BY STRESS IN PHOTOELASTIC MATERIA ...

  9. A LASER MICROPROBE FOR ANALYZING LASER PRODUCED MATERIAL BLOWOFF FROM BULK MATERIALS IS TO BE DEVELOPED.

    SBC: PHOTOMETRICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A LASER MICROPROBE FOR ANALYZING LASER PRODUCED MATERIAL BLOWOFF FROM BULK MATERIALS IS TO BE DEVELOPED. MOST WORK ON LASER-TARGET AND LASER-SURFACE INTERACTIONS HAS CONCENTRATED ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF DIAGNOSTICS AND PROBES FOR MEASURING PHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF THE PLASMA PRODUCED FROM PELLETS, THIN FILM TARGETS, AND BULK MATERIALS. LITTLE WORK HAS BEEN DONE TO ANALYZE THE MATERIAL BLOWOFF. WE SHAL ...

  10. PULSED SHORT WAVELENGTHS LASER EFFECTS SIMULATORS

    SBC: Schafer Corporation            Topic: N/A

    INVESTIGATE POTENTIAL OF A NOVEL CONCEPT TO GENERATE SPECIFIC WAVELENGTH REGIONS OF HIGH INTENSITY RADIATION AND/OR PLANAR BLAST WAVES TO PRODUCE, ON CLOSE-BY (TARGET) STRUCTURES AND/OR MATERIALS, THE THERMAL AND/OR SHOCK LOADINGS DELIVERED BY SINGLE PULSE OR REPETITIVE PULSE LASERS. THE CONCEPT, IF SUCCESSFUL, COULD APPLY OVER LARGE (ONE FOOT OR MORE) DIAMETER AREAS ON LARGE, SCALABLE STRUCTURES/ ...
