  1. ENGINEERING RESEARCH ON FUEL CELLS FOR ANTARCTIC ENERGY PRODUCTION AND CONSERVATION AS WELL AS POTABLE WATER TREATMENT AND DELIVERY

    SBC: ARCTIC ENERGIES LTD            Topic: N/A

    THE 1988 REPORT OF THE U.S. ANTARCTIC PROGRAM SAFETY REVIEW PANEL MADE RECOMMENDATIONS ON NEEDED IMPROVEMENTS TO ANTARCTIC ENERGY PRODUCTION AND CONSERVATION, INCLUDING INTERACTIONS WITH THE POTABLE WATER TREATMENT AND DELIVERY FUNCTION. THIS INNOVATIVE PROPOSAL RESPONDS TO THE SBIR TOPIC AND TO THESE REPORT RECOMMENDATIONS. WITH THE NSF/DPPLOGISTIC DECISION IN MID 1989 TO CONCENTRATE ON A SINGLE ...

  2. ACTIVATED THIN FILM NOBLE METAL COMBUSTIBLE GAS SENSORS

    SBC: Arizona Instrument Corpon            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS RESEARCH PROJECT IS TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF DETECTING COMBUSTIBLE GASES AT ELEVATED TEMPERATURES DIRECTLY FROM THE CHANGE IN WORK FUNCTION OF A THIN METAL FILM. A BROAD SPECTRUM OF ENVIRONMENTALLY IMPORTANT INORGANIC AND ORGANIC SPECIES HAVE BEEN SELECTED FOR SYSTEMATIC INVESTIGATIONS ON PROMISING NOBLE-METAL FILMS. THE SENSING MECHANISM IS BELIEVED TO INVOLVE OXYGEN ...

  3. SACRIFICIAL POLYIMIDE MATERIALS FOR THE FABRICATION OF MICROELECTROMECHANICAL DEVICES

    SBC: Brewer Science Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    A KEY STEP IN THE FABRICATION OF FREE-STANDING MICROMECHANICAL DEVICES IS OFTEN THE REMOVAL OF A SACRIFICIAL OXIDE LAYER WITH HYDROFLUORIC ACID. AS A RESULT, THIS POWERFUL TECHNIQUE IS LIMITED TO USE ON POLYSILICON AND A FEW HF-RESISTANT METALS. THE GOAL OF THIS WORK IS TO DEMONSTRATE THAT MICRODEVICES CAN BE FASHIONED FROM COMMON METALS SUCH AS ALUMINUM BY REPLACING THE OXIDE LAYER WITH A THERMAL ...

  4. ELECTRICAL DEVICES BASED ON SPIN-COATABLE POLYANILINES

    SBC: Brewer Science Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS A STATED NEED FOR LOW-TEMPERATURE PROCESSES FOR THEDEPOSITION OF SEMICONDUCTOR DEVICES ON TOP OF INSULATORS. IN PARTICULAR, NONLINEAR DEVICES ARE NEEDED IN THE LIQUID CRYSTAL DISPLAY INDUSTRY IN ACTIVE MATRIX LIQUID CRYSTAL DISPLAYS. THE MAXIMUM SIZE OF DISPLAYS IS LIMITED IN PART BY THE DIFFICULTY IN PRODUCING SMALL, NONLINEAR DEVICES OVERLARGE AREA GLASS SUBSTRATES. THIS PROPOSAL ADDRES ...

    SBIR Phase I 1991 National Science Foundation
  6. A SIGN LANGUAGE-BASED USER-SYSTEM INTERFACE

    SBC: Dvp, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SIGN LANGUAGE IS THE NORMAL MODE OF COMMUNICATION FOR MANY DEAF AND NON-SPEAKING INDIVIDUALS. THE PROBLEM WITH SIGN LANGUAGE IS THAT TO COMMUNICATE, ALL PERSONS INVOLVED MUST UNDERSTAND SIGN LANGUAGE AND BE IN PLAIN SIGHT OF EACH OTHER. A SYSTEM IS NEEDED THAT CAN ENCODE SIGN LANGUAGE AND CONVERT IT TO THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE TEXT THAT IT REPRESENTS, SO THAT REMOTE SIGNERS AND THOSE NOT VERSED IN SIG ...

  7. A SMALL INTEGRATED GEOPHYSICAL INSTRUMENT FOR THE FIELD MEASUREMENT OF THE MAGNETIC AND ELECTICAL PROPERTIES OF ROCKSAMPLES

    SBC: Elliot Geophysical Co., Inc            Topic: N/A

    GEOPHYSICAL PROSPECTING FOR MINERAL DEPOSITS DEPENDS ON THE PHYSICAL PROPERTY CONTRASTS BETWEEN VARIOUS ROCK UNITS AND MINERAL DEPOSITS. A BROADER UNDERSTANDING OF THE PHYSICAL STRUCTURE OF THE EARTH CAN BE REALIZED FROM ROCK SAMPLE PHYSICAL DATA. A SMALL POCKET SIZED INSTRUMENT TO MEASURE THE MAGNETIC AND ELECTRICAL PROPERTIES OF ROCK SAMPLES UNDERFIELD CONDITIONS WOULD BE AN IMMENSE AID TO EXPLO ...

    SBIR Phase I 1991 National Science Foundation
  8. SOFTWARE ARCHITECTURE FOR ADVANCED FINITE ELEMENT ANALYSIS METHODS ON PARALLEL AND DISTRIBUTED COMPUTATIONAL SYSTEMS

    SBC: Engineering Software Research And Development, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROPOSED INVESTIGATION IS TO ADDRESS SOFTWARE ARCHITECTURAL ISSUES WHICH WILL FACILITATE THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ADVANCED FINITE ELEMENT TECHNOLOGY (E.G. HP-VERSION) FOR PARALLEL AND DISTRIBUTED COMPUTATIONALPROCESSING SYSTEMS AND TO PRODUCE A PROTOTYPE SOFTWARE SYSTEM FOR USE IN DEMONSTRATING AND BENCHMARKING THE TECHNIQUES INVESTIGATED. THE SOFTWARE ARCHITECTURE TO BE DEVELOP ...

    SBIR Phase I 1991 National Science Foundation
  9. CRYOGENICALLY COOLED CONTROLLED SWITCH FOR SPACE POWER CONDITIONING

    SBC: Hmj Corp.            Topic: N/A

    A SOLID STATE SWITCH FOR OPERATION AT CRYOGENIC TEMPERATURE IS BEING DEVELOPED THAT WILL PROVIDE MULTI-MEGAWATT POWER CONDITIONING IN THE RAPIDLY EXPANDING FIELD OF LOW TEMPERATURE ELECTRONICS. SINCE EXISTING CONTROLLED SWITCHES ARE NOT DIRECTLY SUITABLE FOR CRYOGENIC OPERATION, ONLY A FUNDAMENTAL APPROACH CAN DEVELOP STRUCTURES CAPABLE OF LOW LOSS AND RELIABLE OPERATION IN THE TEMPERATURE RANGE B ...

  10. GLUCOSE MICROBIOSENSOR UTILIZING SCANNING TUNNELING MICROSCOPY

    SBC: J. & D. Scientific, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE GOAL OF THE PHASE I RESEARCH IS TO UNDERSTAND THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE SURFACE NANOSTRUCTURE OF A MODEL AMPEROMTERIC BIOSENSOR AND ITS ELECTROCHEMICAL PROPERTIES. THE MODEL SYSTEM CHOSEN FOR THIS RESEARCH IS THE GLUCOSE-OXIDASE/GLUCOSE COUPLE. THE PERFORMANCE OF THE PROTOTYPE SYSTEM WITH VARIOUS IMMOBILIZATION MATRICES AND SUBSTRATES WILL BE STUDIED IN SITU WITH SCANNING TUNNELING MICROSCO ...
