  1. Highly Bright, Heavy Metal-Free, and Stable Doped Semiconductor Nanophosphors for Economical Solid State Lighting Alternatives

    SBC: NANOMATERIALS AND NANOFABRICATION LABORATORIES            Topic: N/A

    There is growing concern about how to limit the release of mercury into the environment. One significant source of mercury is found in fluorescent lamps. Recently, however, compact fluorescent lamps have been heavily promoted in order to conserve electrical energy. While it is true that switching to energy efficient lighting is one of the easiest ways to save energy, reduce CO2 emissions, and save ...

  2. Biomimetic Nanostructured Coating for Dry Machining

    SBC: NanoMech, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase II proposes to develop an innovative nanostructured coating, with a unique integration of hard phases and lubrication phases, for dry machining of austenite steels for the automotive and aerospace industries. This novel coating will be synthesized using a combination of electrostatic spray coating (ESC), chemical vapor infiltration (CVI), and plasma etching. W unique biomimetic inspir ...

  3. Biomimetic Nanostructured Coating for Dry Machining

    SBC: NanoMech, Inc.            Topic: C3NCERA1

    The goal of this Phase I research project is to develop a novel adaptive nanostructured coating for cutting tools optimized for dry machining applications. Dry machining eliminates the use of metalworking fluid. Today, it is estimated that more than 100 million gallons of metalworking fluid are used each year in the United States. Some of the fluids in use are oil-based, but even the ...
