  1. PULSE DETONATION SYNTHESIS FOR HIGH TEMPERATURE CERAMIC COMPOSITES AND COATINGS

    SBC: Adroit Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Adroit Systems, Inc. will develop a Pulse Detonation Synthesis (PDS) process to manufacture ceramic powders from gas-powder reactant mixtures more efficiently and inexpensively than current methods. A high combustion rate and simple design make the PDS system capable of mass producing these powders, which are used as raw materials for high-temperature, high-performance ceramics and ceramic composi ...

  3. NORMAL INCIDENT N-TYPE STRAINED LAYER INGAAS/GAAS MULTIPLE QUANTUM WELL IR DETECTOR ARRAY

    SBC: Alpha Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Alpha Photonic Inc. (API) proposes, to develop an n-type strained layer InGaAs/GaAs multiple quantum well (MOW) structure for normal incident long wavelength (>12 um) infrared (IR) detection. This structure offers high sensitivity and a fast response time. The detection wavelength can be easily tuned by tailoring the MOW structure. The detection mechanism is based on the coupling of the conduction ...

  4. DIRECT DIGITAL READOUT FOCAL-PLANES FOR PASSIVE SENSORS

    SBC: AMAIN ELECTRONICS CO., INC.            Topic: N/A

    AMAIN Electronics has recently patented an entirely new focal-plane method which directly digitizes the photo-response at each pixel within a monolithic or hybrid focal-plane. This technology is broadly applicable, and offers an opportunity to significantly advance sensor technology across the spectrum from visible to VLWIR, and in a very wide range of military, space, commercial, and evern consum ...

  5. EMBEDDED PIEZO MICRO-SENSOR FOR REAL TIME HEALTH MONITORING OF STRUCTURAL MATERIALS

    SBC: AMERICAN PHOTONICS TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed concept combines the advantages of fiber optic geometry and piezoelectric materials to produce a superior active strain sensor. The sensor will be produced with innovative manufacturing processes of sputtering multi-layered thin films of piezoelectric materials and insulators. Such a sensor, suitable for embedding into structureal composites, would impart real-time monitoring capabili ...

  6. QUASI-WELD-FREE AND NANOCRYSTALLINE APPROACHES TO LONG-LIFE BELLOWS SEALS IN CRYOCOOLERS & OTHER RECIPROCATING MACHINES

    SBC: ANCO ENGINEERS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Two very different approaches to the sealing reliability probelm of reciprocating machines are to be investigated and compared. In one approach, bellows design improvements are the result of combining the excellent dead volume avoidance characteristics of welded bellows with the structural characteristics of formed bellows. Formed bellows avoid both the high strees concentration values and the lar ...

  8. MULTIPLEXING/DEMULTIPLEXING SCHEME FOR LASER COMMUNICATIONS USING RESONANT FARADAY ROTATION

    SBC: AstroTerra Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The primary objective of this research is to develop a novel optical multiplexing/demultiplexing device to combine many separate laser channels for communications applications. For both free space and fiber optic laser communications it is desirable to have a multiplexing scheme which has many channels close together in wavelength (

  10. INTEGRATED CIRCUIT RELIABILITY SIMULATOR

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

    BTA Technology, Inc. will transform a prototype circuit reliability simulator into a commercial computer-aided design tool for widespread industrial use. BERT (Berkeley Reliability Tool) is a revolutionary simulator that predicts integrated circuit reliabilty due to the effects of hot carrier induced degradation in MOS and bipolar transistors. Oxide breakdown and interconnect and contact electromi ...
