  1. A DISTRIBUTED FIBER OPTIC SENSOR FOR REVERSIBLE DETECTION OFATMOSPHERIC CO2

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    PHASE I OF THIS PROJECT AIMS TO DEVELOP A DISTRIBUTED FIBER OPTIC SENSOR INCORPORATING IMMOBILIZED TRANSITION METAL COMPLEXES COMPATIBLE WITH ACHIEVING BOTH SELECTIVE AND REVERSIBLE DETECTION OF ATMOSPHERIC CARBON DIOXIDE (CO2). THE ADOPTED STRATEGY RELIES ON THE DETECTION OF OPTICAL CHANGES INDUCED ON A FIBER OPTIC SUBSTRATE BY TRANSITION METAL COMPLEXES THAT HAVE DEMONSTRATED PREVIOUS EVIDENCE F ...

  2. A SUPERCONDUCTING CURRENT LIMITER FOR POWER CONDITIONING IN PLASMA CONFINEMENT SYSTEMS

    SBC: Illinois Superconductor            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT INVOLVES THE DEVELOPMENT OF A CURRENT-LIMITING DEVICE DESIGNED TO OPERATE AS A COMPONENT IN HIGH ENERGY FUSION PLASMA POWER CONDITIONING SUBSYSTEMS. THE ACTIVE ELEMENT IN THE PLANNED CURRENT LIMITER IS BASED ON THE HIGH TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTING MATERIAL YBA2CU3O7-X. RECENT ADVANCES IN THE PROCESSING OF THIS MATERIAL GREATLY IMPROVE ITS ELECTRICAL CHARACTERISTICS; DEVICES THAT WILL ...

  4. AN INNOVATIVE DEVICE TO ENHANCE JET PULSE CLEANING OF CERAMIC CANDLE FILTERS

    SBC: Industrial Filter And Pump Man            Topic: N/A

    THE NEW SOURCE PERFORMANCE STANDARDS (NSPS) AND RECENT CLEAN AIR ACT AMENDMENTS HAVE PRODUCED AN URGENT NEED FOR HIGHLY EFFICIENT PARTICULATE AND AIR TOXICS REMOVAL DEVICES, ESPECIALLY FOR COAL COMBUSTION AND COAL GASIFICATION. PARTICULATE LEVELS MUST BE REDUCED TO NEARLY UNDETECTABLE LEVELS IN HIGHLY CORROSIVE, HOT GAS STREAMS. VERY FEW TECHNOLOGIES SEEM TO MEET THESE REQUIREMENTS, EXCEPT FOR CER ...

  5. DISTRIBUTED-NETWORK PARALLEL COMPUTING FOR ADAPTIVE METHODOLOGIES IN COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS

    SBC: Computational Mechan            Topic: N/A

    A GENERAL-PURPOSE, SOLUTION-ADAPTIVE, FINITE-ELEMENTS CODE THAT TREATS BROAD CLASSES OF INCOMPRESSIBLE FLOWS HAS BEEN DEVELOPED. THE CODE EMPLOYS H-ADAPTIVE AND P-ENRICHMENT ALGORITHMS THAT REFINE THE STRUCTURE OF THE MESH TO OPTIMIZE COMPUTATIONS. THE FULL POTENTIAL FOR USE OF SUCH SMART ALGORITHMS IN COMPUTATIONAL FLUID DYNAMICS APPEARS TO LIE IN PARALLEL COMPUTATIONS PRIMARILY BECAUSE OF THE EX ...

  7. FISCHER-TROPSCH ELECTROCHEMICAL CARBON DIOXIDE REDUCTION TO GASEOUS FUELS

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    PHASE I OF THIS PROJECT IS INVESTIGATING NOVEL ELECTROCATALYSTS AS SITES FOR PROMOTING THE ELECTROCHEMICAL FISCHER-TROPSCH (EFT) REDUCTION OF CO2 TO GASEOUS HYDROCARBONS AT BOTH HIGH RATES AND LOW OVERPOTENTIALS. IT IS ANTICIPATED THAT THESE ELECTROCATALYSTS WILL POSSESS HIGH ACTIVITY FOR PROMOTING INITIAL CO2 REDUCTION TO ADSORBED CO, FOLLOWED BY POTENTIAL ASSISTED C-O BOND BREAKAGE TO GIVE ADSOR ...

  8. GPS-BASED AUTONOMOUS SPACE NAVIGATION

    SBC: Arrowsmith Technologies Inc            Topic: N/A

    COMMERCIAL AND GOVERNMENT SPACE TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS DEPEND ON GROUND SUPPORT FOR NAVIGATION. THE GROUND SOLUTION CAN BE COSTLY AND MAY PROVIDE LESS ACCURACY THAN NEEDED. A GPS-BASED REAL-TIME AUTONOMOUS SPACECRAFT NAVIGATION SYSTEM IS PROPOSED. AN ALGORITHM WILL BE DEVELOPED WHICH COMBINES GPS-DERIVED POINT POSITION ESTIMATES WITH A PROPAGATED A PRIORI POSITION ESTIMATE. THE POINT POSITIONS ARE ...

  9. IN SITU SURFACE ELEMENTAL ANALYSIS/PROCESS CONTROL AT MILLITORR PRESSURE DURING SUPERCONDUCTOR FILM DEPOSITION

    SBC: Ionwerks, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE HIGH PRESSURE LIMITS OF A NEW PROPRIETARY TECHNIQUE FOR SURFACE ELEMENTAL AND ISOTOPIC ANALYSIS ARE BEING EXPLORED. THE TECHNIQUE SHOULD BE USEFUL IN THE MILLITORR PRESSURE REGIME, THUS ALLOWING MEASUREMENT OF THIN FILM STOICHIOMETRY DURING GROWTH AND PROCESSING. THE PRESENT RESEARCH IS FOCUSING ON ANALYSIS OF YTTRIUM-BARIUM-COPPER-OXYGEN (YBCO) SUPERCONDUCTOR FILMS SUBJECTED TO HIGH PRESSURES ...
