  2. REDUCING U.S. IMPORT OIL DEPENDENCE BY ONE BILLION GALLONS OF DIESEL FUEL PER YEAR

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: N/A

    UNITED STATES SEMI-TRAILER VANS EXPEND OVER 10,000,000,000 GALLONS OF DIESEL FUEL PER YEAR MOVING AIR AROUND THE VEHICLES. THIS NEEDLESS WASTE OF FUEL INCREASES OUR IMPORT OIL DEPENDENCY, AS WELL AS ADDS NEEDLESS DIESEL EXHAUST CARCINOGENS INTO OUR ATMOSPHERE. RECENTLY, CONGRESS HAS ENACTED LEGISLATION WHICH PERMITS TRACTOR/SEMI-TRAILER LENGTH LIMITS TO BE EXCEEDED IF THE PURPOSE IS TO IMPROVE FUE ...

  3. LONG CYCLE LIFE SOLID STATE SOLID POLYMER ELECTROLYTE CELLS

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    THE RESEARCH EFFORT IS DIRECTED TOWARDS DETERMING THE TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY OF MORPHOLOGICALLY INVARIENT ELECTRODE/SOLID POLYMER ELECTROLYTE (SPE) JUNCTIONS FOR LONGCYCLE LIFE ELECTROCHEMICAL CELLS. ALKALI ION CONDUCTING SPES TO BE USED IN THIS PROGRAM WILL INCLUDE THOSE BASED UPON POLY(ETHYLENE OXIDE) AND THE POLYPHOSPHAZENES. NOVEL SECONDARY ELECTRODES WILL INCLUDE THE LITHIUM INTERCALATING MATE ...

  4. A SOLVATED ELECTRON SECONDARY LITHIUM ELECTRODE FOR HIGH ENERGY DENSITY BATTERIES

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    TECHNICAL EFFORT IS DIRECTED TOWARDS DETERMING THE FEASIBILITY OF AN ELECTROCHEMICALLY REVERSIBLE LIQUID NEGATIVE ACTIVE MATERIAL CONSISTING OF LITHIUM DISSOLVED IN LIQUID AMMONIA TO GIVE A NOVEL SOLVATED ELECTRON SECONDARY LITHIUM ELECTRODE. CONTAINMENT OF THE ACTIVE MATERIAL FROM DIRECT CONTACT TO THE LIQUID NON-AQUEOUS ELECTROLYTE IS REALIZED VIA USE OF A LITHIUM INTERCALATED ELECTRONICALLY CON ...

  5. A METHOD FOR LARGE-SCALE PROPAGATION OF ECONOMIC PLANT CULTIVARS ELIMINATING LABOR-INTENSIVE TISSUE HANDLING

    SBC: Gravi-mechanics Company            Topic: N/A

    COMMERCIAL TISSUE CULTURE PROPAGATION OF PLANT CULTIVARS IS NOW LIMITED TO SPECIALTY CROPS BECAUSE OF THE HIGH UNIT COSTOF PLANTS SO PROPAGATED. THIS COST IS THE COMBINED EFFECT OF THE LABOR INTENSIVE NATURE OF MANUAL TISSUE TRANSFER WHETHER FOR MEDIUM RENEWAL OR CHANGE AND LOW MULTIPLICATION RATE OF THE CULTURE METHOD USED. THE ROOTING MEDIUM MODULE NOW WIDELY USED AS A FINAL MEDIUM FOR ROOTING O ...

  6. "A SIMPLE HIGH PERFORMANCE AVALANCHE PHOTODIODE FOR LONG-WAVELENGTH OPTICAL COMMUNICATIONS"

    SBC: Eti Instrument Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    FUTURE HIGH SPEED ( 1GBIT) OPTICAL COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS WILL REQUIRE AVALANCHE PHOTODETECTORS (APDS) WHICH OPERATE AT 1300 AND 1550NM WAVELENGTHS. LABORATORY TESTS HAVE SHOWN THAT INGAAS/INP APDS CAN BE MADE WHICH OUTPERFORM BOTH PIN/FET RECEIVERS AND GERMANIUM APDS AT THESE WAVELENGTHS - AT HIGH DATA RATES. HOWEVER THESE DEVICES ARE EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO MAKE AND ELABORATE CRYSTAL GROWTH AND PR ...

  7. SYNTHESIS, ANALYSIS AND EVALUATION OF ZSM-5 ZEOLITES WITH INTERNAL CATALYTIC INTERFACES FOR REGIOSELECTIVE SYNTHESES

    SBC: INRAD            Topic: N/A

    RECENT EXPERIMENTS AT INRAD HAVE ENABLED US TO INCREASE SELECTIVITY FOR TERMINAL CHLORINATION OF ALKANES >25 FOLD BYSORBING THE ALKANES ON SOME CONVENTIONALLY SYNTHESIZED ZSM-5ZEOLITES. SELECTIVITY VARIED DRAMATICALLY DEPENDING ON THE SOURCE OF THE ZEOLITE ALTHOUGH THEY HAD SIMILAR BULK PROPERTIES. WE ASCRIBE THIS SELECTIVITY TO THE PRESENCE OF INTERFACES WITHIN THE CRYSTALS. OUR RESEARCH PLAN IS ...

  8. IMPROVED DYNAMIC SEAL PERFORMANCE USING DIFFERENTIAL WEAR PROCESSES

    SBC: Mechanical Seal Technology,            Topic: N/A

    DYNAMIC SEAL PERFORMANCE CAN BE IMPROVED BY FAVORABLY CONTROLLING THE FLUID PRESSURE BETWEEN THE TWO SLIDING SURFACES. FAVORABLE CONTROL OF FLUID PRESSURE IN THE MIXED FRICTION REGIME CAN LEAD TO REDUCED GROSS WEAR AND REDUCED FRICTION. IN TRADITIONAL DESIGN THE DETAIL OF THE MIXED FRICTION LUBRICATION IS LEFT TO THE INHERENT CHARACTERISTICSOF THE MATERIALS THEMSELVES. BY ALTERING MATERIAL PROPERT ...

  9. STRUCTURAL ZOOMING

    SBC: Re/spec Inc            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT WILL DEVELOP AN INTEGRATED, COMPUTER GRAPHICAL DESIGN TOOL FOR THE NUMERICAL SOLUTION OF BOUNDARY VALUE PROBLEMS OVER DOMAINS CONTAINING GEOMETRIC FEATURES WITH WIDELY VARYING SCALES. MANY HOURS ARE PRESENTLY SPENT IN MODELING SUCH PROBLEMS. THE PROPOSED STRUCTURAL ZOOMING SYSTEM (SZS) WILL SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCE THE COST AND INCREASETHE ACCURACY OF SUCH ANALYSES. THE CENTRAL CONCEPT, A ...

  10. OPTICAL CHARACTERIZATION TECHNIQUES FOR SOI MATERIAL

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

    PRESENT TECHNIQUES OF EXAMING RECRYSTALLIZED SILICON, INCLUDING SOI MATERIAL, INCLUDE A WET (ACID) ETCH AND EXAMINATION WITH AN OPTICAL MICROSCOPE, X-RAY DIFFRACTION, SEM OR TEM MICROSCOPES. THESE TECHNIQUES ARE SLOW, AND USUALLY THE SAMPLE IS DESTROYED. SANDIA SYSTEMS PROPOSES INVESTIGATING ANGLE-RESOLVED LIGHT SCATTER TECHNIQUES AS A METHOD TO EXAMINE RECRYSTALLIZED SILICON AS WELL AS OTHER MICR ...
