  2. New Imaging X-Ray Sensor Technology for Real-Time Nondestructive Testing

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    X-ray imaging is an important technique which is used in variety of applications such as general radiology in medicine, astronomical observations, non-destructive testing, X-ray diffraction for materials studies and others. The ability of X-rays to penetrate deep in to matter allows investigation of interior components with possibility of real-time dynamic studies. However, while significant advan ...

  3. Low Cost Avalanche Photodiodes and Photodiode Arrays

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Silicon avalanche photodiodes are among the most sensitive optical detectors available today. It 11as been shown that large area APDs are potentially an excellent alternative to photomultiplier tubes (PMTs) in applications such as LIDAR, nuclear medicine, physics research and nuclear radiation measurement instrumentation. They can offer improved performance based on their compact size, solid state ...

  4. Actively Cooled Minority-Carrier Devices for Power Conditioners

    SBC: AMERICAN SUPERCONDUCTOR CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    New power semiconductor device performance is limited by cooling because high heat-flux cooling systems have not matched their increased power density. Therefore, real designs rarely achieve device ratings. American Superconductor (ASC) demonstrated CryoPower+, which cools a variety of power MOSFET topologies by direct immersion in coolants from 77-300K, with boiling where appropriate. CryoPower ( ...

  5. Low Loss, High Temperature Superconducting Wire For Inductive Energy Storage

    SBC: AMERICAN SUPERCONDUCTOR CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase l project is proposed by American Superconductor Corporation (ASC) to establish the feasibility of hermetically manufacturing small-filament, high temperature superconducting (HTS) composite wires for use above 20 K in AC magnet applications such as inductive energy storage devices. HTS magnet wire applications will typically operate under fluctuating ...

  6. Oxidation Resistant, Non-Magnetic Substrates for YBCO Coated Conductors

    SBC: AMERICAN SUPERCONDUCTOR CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    This DOE SBIR proposal explores cost effective production of non-magnetic substrates which will have a major role in the production of YBCO coated conductors. Deformation textured substrates offer a cost-effective way of texturing. The substrate will be produced using inexpensive raw materials and processing. A novel feature is the production of a solid solution alloy with an excellent cube textur ...

  7. Bottom Anti-Reflective Coatings (BARCs) for 193 nm Lithography

    SBC: Brewer Science Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    A long-standing trend in the integrated circuit industry is to reduce pattern geometries on semiconductor substrates. To continue this trend, the next exposure wavelength after on-going deep-ultraviolet (248 nm) will be 193 nm. This SBIR Phase I program will identify and develop thermosetting bottom anti-reflective coatings (BARCs) meeting requirements for use with 193 nm unilayer resists. A serie ...

  8. Development of Uncooled Microbolometer Arrays for IR Imaging

    SBC: Brewer Science Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    Ion-implanted, thin polymer films exhibit a large temperature coefficient of resistance which suggests their application in microbolometer arrays used for infrared ( IR) imaging and temperature mapping. Compared to current microbolometer designs which require a series of difficult deposition steps, an ion-implanted polymer-based device requires only a single layer which can be applied by spin coat ...

  9. Diamond Like Coatings for Polymeric Substrates via Plasma Synthesis

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Most dimond like carbon (DLC) deposition processes require gaseous hydocarbon breakdown on high temperature tolerant substrates. A team of Argonne National Laboratory demonstrated that fullerenes can be used as DLC precursors and that an H2 or O2 rich environment is not required. Burek is extending a similar fullerene techique to DLC coating of plastic materials. Injection molding of plastics i ...

  10. Xenon Production by Iodine Transmutation

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Electrostatic thrusters are the likely choice for station keeping of the new generation of small communication satellites. Xenon is the fuel of choice for these thrusters because of its high mass and low ionization potential. Existing worldwide xenon production will not permit fueling of more than a small fraction of the projected satellite population unless significant price increase of Xe is rea ...
