  1. OPTIMAL SILICON CARBIDE PRODUCTION

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    IT IS DESIRABLE TO ENHANCE THE ABILITY TO MAKE HIGH PURITY SILICON CARBIDE CRYSTALS TO BE USED IN MONITORING INSTRUMENTS AND SENSORS FOR USE IN HARSH ENVIRONMENTS. A SIGNIFICANT ADVANCEMENT IN SIC PRODUCTION HAS BEEN MADE AT NASA-LEWIS. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO OPTIMIZE THE NASA-LEWIS PROCESS FOR MAKING SEMICONDUCTOR-QUALITY SILICON CARBIDE CRYSTALS BY BETTER UNDERSTANDING BOTH THE CHEM ...

  2. AN OPEN PATH DIODE LASER FLUX METER FOR TRACE GASES OF BIOGENIC ORIGIN

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE PURPOSE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DESIGN AND DEVELOP AN INSTRUMENT TO MEASURE FLUXES OF TRACE GASES IN ORDER TO DETERMINE THEIR SOURCES AND SINKS IN THE BIOSPHERE. THE METHOD IS BASED ON THE WELL ESTABLISHED EDDY CORRELATION TECHNIQUE AND WOULD USE A TUNABLE DIODE LASER SOURCE COMBINED WITH A UNIQUE OPEN PATH MULTIPLE PASS ABSORPTION CELL FOR TRACE SPECIES DETECTION AT SUB-PPB LEVELS. THIS INSTRUM ...

  3. ADIABATIC DEMAGNETIZATION REFRIGERATOR FOR USE IN ZERO GRAVITY

    SBC: Alabama Cryogenic Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT COVERS THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN ADIABATIC DEMAGNETIZATION REFRIGERATOR FOR USE IN ZERO GRAVITY AND EMPLOYS AN INNOVATIVE PRECOOLER AND THERMAL SWITCH. IN ADDITION, THE PROJECT INVOLVES THE DESIGN OF A SUPERCONDUCTING MAGNET SYSTEM ENERGIZED BY A SUPERCONDUCTING FLUX PUMP. THE SYSTEM REQUIRES A 2K HEAT SINK FOR OPERATION.

  4. A HELIUM-3/HELIUM-4 DILUTION CRYOCOOLER FOR OPERATION IN ZERO GRAVITY

    SBC: Alabama Cryogenic Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT CONCERNS THE DEVELOPMENT OF A CRYOCOOLER TO OPERATE AT 0.1 K IN ZERO GRAVITY. THE CRYOCOOLER WILL USE THE PRINCIPLE OF DILUTION OF HELIUM-3 SOLUTION BY PURE SUPERFLUID HELIUM-4 FOR THE COOLING EFFECT. A CONVENTIONAL DILUTION REFRIGERATOR REQUIRES GRAVITY FOR OPERATION, SO AN INNOVATIVE TECHNIQUE IS REQUIRED FOR THE ZERO GRAVITY SYSTEM. THE SYSTEM, WHICH REQUIRES A 2 K HEAT SINK, AND C ...

  5. THERMALLY STABLE ELECTROLYTES FOR RECHARGEABLE LITHIUM BATTERIES

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

    THE KEY PROBLEM INHIBITING THE DEVELOPMENT OF HIGH ENERGY RECHARGEABLE LI BATTERIES IS THE POOR CYCLEABILITY OF THE LI ELECTRODE. ALTHOUGH MAJOR ADVANCES IN THIS TECHNOLOGY HAVE BEEN MADE OVER THE LAST FIVE YEARS, SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENTS IN CONTROLLING LI-ELECTROLYTE REACTIVITY ARE STILL REQUIRED. SOLVENTS SUCH AS 2-METHYLTETRAHYDROFURAN, 2-METHYLFURAN, AND 3-METHYLSULFOLAN, ARE KNOWN TO BE STABL ...

  6. NOVEL ELECTRODES FOR HYDROGEN- BROMINE BATTERY

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    INNOVATIVE APPROACHES TO SOLVE THE PROBLEMS ENCOUNTERED AT BOTH THE ANODE AND CATHODE OF THE HYDROGEN-BROMINE BATTERY SYSTEM ARE ADDRESSED. ADVANCED INERT CATALYSTS WILL BE PREPARED AS THE POSITIVE ELECTRODE MATERIAL AND TESTED FOR THEIR RESISTANCE AGAINST BROMINE INTERCALATON AND SUBSEQUENT DEGRADATION. SIMILARLY, NOVEL ELECTRO-CATALYSTS WILL BE USED FOR THE NEGATIVE ELECTRODE TO IMPROVE THE RESI ...

  7. LASER SPECTROMETER AND WAVEMETER

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE GOAL IS TO DESIGN AN OPTIMAL SPECTROMETER/WAVEMETER INSTRUMENT THAT WILL FACILITATE LASER REMOTE SENSING MEASUREMENTS (LIDAR) THAT REQUIRE CAREFUL LASER TUNING. THE OUTPUT OF A LASER SPECTROMETER/WAVEMETER (LS/W) WILL NOT ONLY SERVE AS A LASER DIAGNOSTIC BUT ALSO MAKE IT POSSIBLE TO SERVO CONTROL THE LASER WAVELENGTH AND LINE SHAPE. NUMEROUS INTERFEROMETERS FOR LS/W SYSTEMS HAVE BEEN SUGGESTED ...

    SBIR Phase II 1986 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  8. NOVEL OXYGEN ATOM SOURCE FOR MATERIAL DEGRADATION STUDIES

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A PULSED DEVICE WILL BE STUDIED WHICH CAN PRODUCE LARGE FLUXES OF OXYGEN ATOMS IN THE 1 TO 5 EV ENERGY RANGE. THE HIGH END OF THIS ENERGY RANGE CORRESPONDS TO VELOCITIES APPROPRIATE TO LOW EARTH SPACE SHUTTLE ORBITS. AS PRESENTLY CONFIGURED THE DEVICE WOULD PROVIDE 10(18) OXYGEN ATOMS PER PULSE AND WOULD BE SCALABLE TO HIGHER LEVELS AND REPETITIVE PULSING. AN EXPERIMENTAL PROOF OF CONCEPT WILL BE ...

  9. HIGH SURFACE AREA DUAL FUNCTION OXYGEN ELECTROCATALYSTS FOR SPACE POWER APPLICATIONS

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    PHYSICAL SCIENCES INC. PROPOSES TO INVESTIGATE VARIOUS MIXEDMETAL OXIDES AS DUAL FUNCTION ALKALINE OXYGEN ELECTROCATALYSTS. IN PARALLEL, WE PROPOSE NOVEL APPROACH FOR PREPARING THESE MATERIALS IN HIGH SURFACE AREA FORM STARTING FROM THE CONVENTIONALLY PRODUCED LOW SURFACE AREA MATERIALS. THE SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION OF THIS PROGRAM WOULD CONTRIBUTE TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN INTEGRATED ALKALINE REGENER ...
