  1. A Multiband Wide Area Fluorescence Detection System

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Nomadics has been working with landmine detection technologies since 1998. During that time we have established the extreme sensitivity of an amplifying fluorescent polymer (AFP) that has been employed in the direct detection of ultratrace quantities ofchemical signature compounds of explosives and effective methods of fluorescence measurement including standoff detection. These methods have the ...

  4. Carbon Nanotubes for Electromagnetic Interference Shielding


    This STTR Phase I Program will test a processing scheme for fabricating a polymer-based nanocomposite material with significant electrical conductivity for electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding of electronic components and signal wires. The highconductivity of the nanocomposite material is introduced by a nanophase inclusion of a class of cost-effective vapor-grown carbon nanotubes. In th ...

  5. Corrosion Prevention Coatings

    SBC: Sciperio, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Military aircraft are largely constructed from special aluminum alloys, which typically have secondary precipitate phases that substantially improve mechanical strength. However, these regions also promote corrosion in such common environmental conditionsas acid rain, saltwater, and thermal cycling. The problem is significant enough that the U.S. Air Force expends approximately $1 billion per ye ...

  6. Heat Reduction in Semiconductors by Phonon Annihilation

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this project is to develop multiscale simulation tools for coupled carrier-phonon transport in micro/optoelectronic devices and to explore novel concepts of phonon engineering for heat removal and termal management in advancedsemiconductor devices. The phase I effort resulted in a prototype software modules for multiscale simulation of phonon dynamics in LD semiconductors and prov ...

  7. Lightweight Nanocomposites for Missile Defense Applications

    SBC: Mers, Llc            Topic: N/A

    The key requirement for nanocomposite formation is dispersion of clay particles at nm length scales in polymer matrices, which is not trivial. Such a molecular-level dispersion necessitates complete exfoliation of clay particles, which occurs sporadicallywith the fabrication procedures currently in use. Based on a previously demonstrated concept, we propose to develop a novel nanocomposite fabri ...
