The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. UV HOLOGRAPHIC MATERIALS

    SBC: Accuwave Corp.            Topic: N/A

    BBO AND LBO CLASS MATERIALS WERE STUDIED FOR POSSIBLE APPLICATION AS UV-SENSITIVE PHOTOREFRACTIVE MATERIALS. UNDOPED SAMPLES OF BBO AND LBO WERE DOPED BY HIGH TEMPERATURE DIFFUSION WITH VARIOUS TRANSITION METAL SPECIES TO DETERMINE THEIR SUITABILITY FOR STORING HIGH EFFICIENCY HOLOGRAPHIC GRATINGS. OXIDATION AND REDUCTION HEAT TREATMENTS WERE CARRIED OUT ON THE RESULTING MATERIALS TO OPTIMIZE TH ...

  2. IN SITU RENEWAL OF DETERIORATED SEWER MANHOLES

    SBC: Brimstone Pipe Company            Topic: N/A

    THIS NATION HAS MORE THAN 11 MILLION MANHOLES WHICH NOW NEED, OR SOON WILL NEED, TO BE REHABILITATED. CURRENT TECHNIQUES ARE EITHER TOO COSTLY OR DO NOT LAST. THIS RESEARCH SPEAKS TO THIS PROBLEM THROUGH DEVELOPMENT OF AN INNOVATIVE TECHNIQUE OF RESTORING MANY OF THESE STRUCTURES AT LESS THAN HALF THE COST OF THE RELIABLE METHODS AVAILABLE TODAY. THE CONCEPT USES A NEWLY DEVELOPED APPLICATOR WH ...

  3. PHASE-LOCKED MICROLASER ARRAY

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    IN AN EFFORT TO REACH HIGHER POWERS, LASER RESEARCHERS HAVE DEVELOPED LARGER AND INCREASINGLY COMPLEX DEVICES. AN ALTERNATE SCALING APPROACH IS TO COMBINE THE OUTPUT POWER OF MANY SIMPLE LOW-POWER LASERS IN AN ARRAY. MICROLASERS ARE THE PERFECT ARRAY ELEMENTS BECAUSE THEY ARE MASS-PRODUCIBLE AND HAVE POLARIZED, SINGLE-FREQUENCY, DIFFRACTION-LIMITED OUTPUTS. RESEARCHERS HAVE DEVELOPED A UNIQUE M ...

  4. A HIGH INTENSITY EXCIMER UV SOURCE FOR SEMICONDUCTOR MANUFACTURING

    SBC: Adelphi Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO EXPLORE THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING A HIGH INTENSITY UV EXCIMER SOURCE FOR THE DEMANDING REQUIREMENTS OF THE SEMICONDUCTOR MANUFACTURING AND MATERIALS PROCESSING INDUSTRY. EMERGING PROCESSING TECHNOLOGIES NOT REQUIRING A COHERENT SOURCE INCLUDING UV WAFER CLEANING AND PHOTO CVD WILL REQUIRE VERY HIGH UV INTENSITIES OVER LARGE AREAS (100 MW/CM2) CURRENTLY ONL ...

  5. IMPROVED AIN FILLERS FOR POLYMERIC MATRICES

    SBC: ADVANCED REFRACTORY TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    POLYMERIC MATERIALS ARE USED EXTENSIVELY IN A MULTITUDE OF APPLICATIONS DUE TO A UNIQUE BALANCE OF COST AND STRUCTURAL PROPERTIES. HOWEVER, WHERE THERMAL APPLICATIONS ARE CONCERNED, THE UTILIZATION OF POLYMERIC MATERIALS IS EXTREMELY LIMITED DUE TO POOR THERMAL TRANSFER. STRUCTURAL POLYMERS TYPICALLY EXHIBIT THERMAL CONDUCTIVITIES ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE LOWER THAN MOST METALS AND CERAMICS. PARTICU ...

  6. COLD CATHODES FOR ELECTRON SPECTROSCOPY

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    THE DEVELOPMENT OF COLD ELECTRON EMITTER TECHNOLOGY HAS THE POTENTIAL FOR BROADLY IMPACTING THE RAPIDLY GROWING AREA OF ELECTRON SPECTROSCOPY. COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE INSTRUMENTATION SUCH AS AUGER SPECTROMETERS TYPICALLY EMPLOY THERMIONIC ELECTRON SOURCES WHICH RESTRICT THEIR SCOPE OF USE THROUGH FILAMENT HEATING EFFECTS AND THERMAL CRACKING OF GASES ON FILAMENTS. THESE INSTRUMENTS ARE NOT CAPABL ...

  7. DEFECT REDUCTION IN BULK 6H-SIC

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1994 National Science Foundation
  8. COMPACT LOW-NOISE DIAMOND DYNODES

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1994 National Science Foundation
  9. SECOND GENERATION LEAD CVD PRECURSORS FOR PBTIO3

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    N/A

  10. ZRO2 COATINGS BY PULSED LASER DEPOSITION FOR KNEE PROSTHESES

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    APPROXIMATELY 200,000 TOTAL KNEE REPLACEMENTS AND 200,000 TOTAL HIP REPLACEMENTS ARE PERFORMED YEARLY IN THE UNITED STATES. THE PROSTHESES MUST BE AS RELIABLE AS POSSIBLE. CERAMICS ARE WELL KNOWN AND VALUABLE CLINICAL MATERIALS, BUT FIND LIMITED USE DUE TO THEIR BRITTLENESS. IT WAS FOUND THAT ZRO2 HAS BETTER STRENGTH AND TOUGHNESS THAN A12O3, BUT CAN NOT BE USED IN KNEE PROSTHESES, SINCE KNEE C ...
