  2. Understanding and Control of the Structure of Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes Produced in Laser Plasma

    SBC: XINTEK, INC.            Topic: AF05T005

    The exceptional properties of carbon nanotubes that have prompted potential applications rely on their atomic structure. While the sensitivity of nanotube properties on structural features has been extensively investigated through theoretical analysis and numerical simulations, in practice there is no still effective control of the atomic structure of nanotubes in any of the current synthesis tech ...

  3. Material Surface Properties Modifications by Nonequilibrium Atmospheric Pressure Plasma Processing

    SBC: Atmospheric Plasma Solutions, Inc.            Topic: AF05T028

    The proposed research will develop a non-equilibrium plasma source for deposition of thin films on refractory materials at temperatures less then 600K. The developed source will also have the flexibility to surface treat thermally sensitive substrates without damage. Our existing non-equilibrium atmospheric plasma source will be optimized for depositing amorphous SiC and ZrO2 thermal barrier mat ...

  5. Novel Structural Joining Concepts Using 3-D Textile Preforms and Composites

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: AF05248

    Strength and durability of commonly used bonded and bolted composite-to-composite and composite-to-metal structural joints suffer from sharp geometry variations, mismatch of elastic moduli, Poisson's ratios, coefficients of thermal expansion and thermal conductivity of the adherends, altogether causing high stress concentration and premature joint failure. The proposed work introduces several nove ...
