  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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
