  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. MONOLITHICALLY INTEGRATED AVALANCHE PHOTODIODE ARRAYS

    SBC: Aracor            Topic: N/A

    MONOLITHIC INTEGRATION OF SILICON AVALANCHE PHOTODIODE (APD) ARRAYS WITH THEIR ASSOCIATED ELECTRONICS IS BEING INVESTIGATED. THE PHOTODIODE ELEMENTS ARE BASED ON THE STATE-OF-THE-ART PROCESS WHICH ACHIEVES UNIFORM BULK BREAKDOWN BY USING NEUTRON TRANSMUTATION DOPED SILICON AND A "BEVELED JUNCTION" TO SUPPRESS SURFACE BREAKDOWN. RESEARCHERS INTEND TO COMBINE THESE PHOTODIODE ARRAYS WITH THEIR REA ...

  3. AUTOMATED RAPID METROLOGY FOR LARGE INVESTMENT CASTINGS

    SBC: Aracor            Topic: N/A

    TO MEET EXISTING AND FUTURE CASTING MANUFACTURING NEEDS, THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN AUTOMATED RAPID METROLOGY (ARM) CAPABILITY FOR INVESTMENT CASTING LAYOUT IS BEING INVESTIGATED. THE APPROACH IS BASED ON THE EXTRACTION OF DIMENSIONAL INFORMATION FROM COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY (CT) IMAGES OF A PART. A KEY ADVANTAGE OF ARM IS THAT IT RELIES UPON A RADIOGRAPHIC METHOD TO NONDESTRUCTIVELY OBTAIN BOTH EXTERIOR ...

  4. A NOVEL ATOMIZER FOR OIL-FIRED BURNER COMBUSTION APPLICATIONS

    SBC: Aerometrics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A FEASIBILITY STUDY OF A NOVEL ATOMIZER AND ITS ATOMIZATION PROCESS FOR OIL-FIRED BURNER COMBUSTION APPLICATION IS BEING CARRIED OUT. THE ATOMIZER USES THE EFFERVESCENT ATOMIZATION PROCESS TO ACHIEVE GOOD ATOMIZATION WITH A SMALL AMOUNT OF AIR. THE RESEARCH PROGRAM INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING EFFORTS: (1) DESIGN CONSIDERATION OF THE NOVEL ATOMIZER; (2) THE EVALUATION OF THE PERFORMANCE OF THE ATOMIZE ...

  5. ROBUST NONLINEAR CONTROL DESIGNS FOR COMPLEX DYNAMIC SYSTEM

    SBC: AMERICAN GNC CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    THE NONLINEARITIES AND UNCERTAINTIES INHERENT IN COMPLEX DYNAMIC SYSTEMS, SUCH AS THE DEVELOPMENT OF AUTOPILOT SYSTEMS FOR AIRCRAFT, IMPOSE GREAT CHALLENGES TO LINEAR CONTROL SYSTEMS DESIGN. SEVERAL ADVANCED ROBUST NONLINEAR APPROACHES, NAMELY, NONLINEAR H-INFINITY, INVERSION-BASED CONTROL LAWS, ANALYTICAL GAIN SCHEDULING, AND NONLINEAR SERVOMECHANISM DESIGN ARE BEING USED TO DESIGN A HIGH PERFOR ...

  6. PREATTENTIVE VISION BASED AUTOMATIC RECOGNITION OF SMOKE AND OBSCURANT CLOUDS

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    FIELD TRACKING OF SMOKE AND OBSCURANT CLOUDS FROM FOREST FIRES OR VOLCANOES REQUIRES DETERMINATION OF THE TWO-DIMENSIONAL CLOUD EXTENT SHOWN IN VISIBLE IMAGES SCANNED FROM VARIOUS ANGLES ABOUT THE CLOUDS. AT THE PRESENT TIME, TWO-DIMENSIONAL CLOUD EXTENT IS DETERMINED BY AN OPERATOR WHO MANUALLY LOCATES POINTS ON THE CLOUD PERIMETER-A PROCEDURE WHICH HAS BEEN FOUND TO BE EXPENSIVE, TIME CONSUMING ...

    SBIR Phase I 1994 National Science Foundation
  7. THIN FILM OPTICAL SENSORS FOR SUBSURFACE MONITORING OF ORGANIC WASTE BIODEGRADATION

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    THE USE OF BIOREMEDIATION PROCEDURES TO TREAT ORGANIC WASTES CONTAINING CHLORINATED SOLVENTS OR CONCENTRATED ORGANICS PROVIDES AN EFFECTIVE METHOD OF REDUCING SUBSURFACE CONTAMINATION. HOWEVER, THE TRANSITION OF MICROBIALLY MEDIATED BIODEGRADATION FROM LABORATORY STUDIES TO FIELD-BASED METHODS HAS BEEN HAMPERED BY METHODOLOGICAL LIMITATIONS RELATED TO THE INABILITY TO VERIFY THE ACTIVITY AND TYPE ...

    SBIR Phase I 1994 National Science Foundation
  8. A Parallelization Facility for Handling Irreg

    SBC: Applied Parallel Research,            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1994 National Science Foundation
  9. OPTIMIZATION OF THE THERMAL PERFORMANCE OF WOVEN FABRIC COMPOSITES

    SBC: APPLIED SCIENCES LABORATORY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DUE TO THE EFFECTIVENESS OF FIBROUS MATERIALS IN SUPPRESSING RADIATIVE ENERGY TRANSPORT, THEY ARE WIDELY USED FOR THERMAL INSULATION IN MANY ENGINEERING SYSTEMS, SUCH AS THE SPACE SHUTTLE THERMAL PROTECTION TILES, LINERS OF COMBUSTION ENGINES, FLEXIBLE HEAT SHIELDS IN REENTRY VEHICLES, ETC. OF PARTICULAR INTEREST IS THE FABRIC INSULATION WHICH CONSISTS OF FIBER BUNDLES WOVEN INTO A MATRIX FORMATI ...
