  1. Ultraspectral Imager

    SBC: Kestrel Corporation            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I SBIR demonstrates the underlying technology required to construct an ultraspectral imager that has the ability to spectrally resolve molecular absorption lines while simultaneously creating a two dimensional spatial mapping. The proposed instrument will have a spectral resolution that is better than 2 cm-1 and two dimensional spatial resolution that exceeds 2 milliradian. Based on Fou ...

  2. Ultrahigh Quality, Single-Crystal Bulk Silicon Carbide


    Silicon carbide materials will revolutionize semiconductor devices for military and commercial markets. The material's wide bandgap, high electric field breakdown, high thermal conductivity give SiC capabilities that far exceed those of silicon or gallium arsenide. Despite significant progress in silicon carbide development, fundamental defects--most prominently micropipes--persist. If SiC is to s ...

  3. Ultrafine SiC for Optical Mirrors

    SBC: Materials Modifications Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SiC has exceptionally high thermal conductivity and low linear expansion coefficient to resist thermal distortion, high elastic modulus to resist pressure and bowing distortion. It is lightweight and wear resistant. It also has excellent corrosion resistance and outstanding load bearing characteristics at elevated temperatures. Its hardness is only surpassed by diamond, CBN and boron carbide. As ...

  4. Ultrafine HfC/TaC for Rocket Thrusters

    SBC: Materials Modifications Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Liquid rocket engine performance can be dramatically improved by increasing the wall temperatures for operation concurrent with a reduction in the component weight. The bipropellant fuel combustion temperatures are between 3000 "approx" 3500 C. The conventional thrusters and exit nozzles made of niobium alloys have a maximum operating temperature limit of 1600 C. A regenerative cooling technolo ...

  5. Solid-State Spray Forming of Near-Net-Shape Structural Materials


    The objective of this research is to demonstrate the feasibility of spray forming aluminum Metal Matrix Composites (MMC) in the solid-state physical form as a light weight structural material. It is anticipated that this innovative manufacturing process will provide opportunities to fabricate near-net-shape spacecraft and interceptor structures with unique material properties. The process called S ...

  6. Si Wires in Silicon-On-Insulator Configuration

    SBC: GRATINGS INC            Topic: N/A

    We propose a systematic investigation of crystalline Si structures as their dimensions are reduced to quantum sizes (5-10 nm). For convenience, we have chosen Si on insulator (SOI) material for optical and electrical characterization. Our nanofabrication approach relies on simple laser interferometric lithography techniques that are uniquely adaptable to large area manufacturing. Suitable applic ...

  8. Sensors-Adaptive Beam Expander

    SBC: LSA            Topic: N/A

    We propose to design and fabricate an adaptive beam expander that can be switched between two magnifications. Specifically, the beam expander provides diffraction-limited performance for laser radar beams with diameters of 1 mm and 3 mm. The adaptive beam expander is lightweight, and it has no moving parts. Because the beam expander is an afocal system, it operates on both outgoing and incoming be ...

  9. Rapid Finishing of Optics

    SBC: Materials Modifications Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this Phase I is to develop a high quality, high speed, cost effective technique for polishing silicon carbide mirrors that are machined using single point diamond turning methods. The finished optic should have a more perfectly polished surface with uniform shape and thickness than is presently being produced. We will achieve this by using two different approaches, a novel non-con ...

  10. Pulsed High Energy Synthesis of Fine Metal Powders

    SBC: UTRON, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Demand for micrometer size metal powders is increasing rapidly as new technologies emerge which can make use of their unique characteristics. One rapidly growing application requiring such powders is metal injection molding, a powder metallurgy process for forming near-net-shape components with higher dimensional accuracy than earlier processes. A significant need also exists for micrometer size s ...
