  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. High Performance Piezoceramic Coatings for Ultrasound Applications

    SBC: Active Control eXperts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ACX proposes an innovative new process for the manufacture of smart structures using a High Velocity Oxy-Fuel (HVOF) thermal spray process. This simple, multi-step process will be capable of depositing electroded piezoceramic coatings. The coatings will be poled while still hot, reducing poling times and voltages while increasing poling efficiency. Process times will be extremely short. The pr ...

  5. A Five Volt Lithium Battery

    SBC: COVALENT ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    In this Phase I SBIR program we propose to develop a novel high voltage (5V) lithium-ion battery suitable for portable electronics equipmentand transportation applications. Lithium-ion batteries are already commercially available and typically consist of carbon anode, non-aqueous electrolyte and lithium transition metal oxide cathode such as LiCoO2, LiNiO2 or LiMnO4. These systems have an operat ...

  6. Hand Held High Resolution Imagin Devices for Aircraft Substructures

    SBC: Eikos, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Eikos LLC will evaluate two approaches, millimeter waves and opto-acoustics, for locating edges and holes in substructure that are hidden under exterior panels and skins during aircraft assembly. These devices will work in a camera-like fashion to allow non-destructive remote imaging. Eikos has developed promising approaches to both techniques that have the potential to be low cost and easy to u ...

  7. TOS Enhanced Phthalonitrile Resins with MDC Composite Stitching Technology

    SBC: Eikos, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Eikos LLC will modify and enhance the chemistry of the NRL developed phthalonitrile resin to meet the 700F TOS requirements of high temperature RTM and RFI aerospace composites. Eikos is intimately familiar with the chemistry of the phthalonitrile resin because of our efforts to scale the production of the current bases resin from the laboratory to the pilot plant. Eikos has teamed with McConne ...

  8. MiniMOP (Miniature Multipurpose Optical Pod)

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The following proposal describes an affordable modular sensor system which can be used for tactical oceanography. The system, referred to as MiniMOP (Miniature Multipurpose Optical Pod) is teh integrated sensor package capable of measures fluorometry, luminometry, transmissiometer, salinity, tempature and water depth. The sensor package will remain module for mounting in any small AUV but develo ...

  9. Thin Buried Oxide Densification for Radiation Hardened 80nm BOX SIMOX Substrates

    SBC: IBIS TECHNOLOGY CORP.            Topic: N/A

    SIMOX (Separation by IMplanted Oxygen) technology achieves total dielelectric isolation of active device regions from the substrate and reduces the collection path for ionized charges via the built-in buried oxide which restricts charge movement. Advances in SIMOX technology include radiation hardened memories and gate arrays for space applications, ULSI DRAMS for low voltage operation, thin film ...

  10. High Efficiency, Broadband, Acoustic Transucer/Arrays for Various Underwater Applications

    SBC: Image Acoustics Inc            Topic: N/A

    An innovative deep submergence low frequency, broadband transducer forefficient operation is presented. The transducer uses a multiport concept (U.S. Patent 5, 184, 332) which allows back radiation to arrive in phase with the forward radiation and allows broadband depth independent operation. Because the system utilizes Helmholtz resonators, low frequency operation can be achieved. A number of ...
