  1. Post Exposure Bake Monitoring of Chemically Amplified Resists Using Scatterometry

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

    We will demonstrate the capability of scatterometry to provide a process monitor to post exposure bake of chemically amplified photoresist. Two or more scatterometers will be designed that are capable of monitoring the intensities of multiple diffraction orders that result from illuminating device patterns of photoresist. The goal is to demonstrate the capability of scatterometry to provide a PEB ...

  2. Liquid Rocket Engine Combustion Components Fabricated from ZrB2/BN Composite Using Electroconsolidation (TM) Rapid Densification Technique

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The goal of this program is to design and fabricate selected liquid rocket engine combustion components. This goal will be accomplished by developing a low-cost, near net-shape technology for fabrication and rapid densification of ablation and oxidation-resistant LRE components for a wide variety of Air Force missions. The material which will be used for this purpose is zirconium diboride/boron ...

  3. Fabrication of Functional Gradient Materials Thru Solid Freeforming

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Solid Free Forming of monolith and uniform discrete reinforced materials has been demonstrated by fused deposition of heavily loaded slurries. In this program we will extend the fused deposition process to functional gradient material. The composition of material deposited will be controlled by the flow rates of two individual materials that are mixed in a low dead volume head. Thus, it will be po ...

  4. Small Lot Repair/Manufacture of Microcircuit Boards by Laser Deposition

    SBC: Cm Consulting            Topic: N/A

    The final prototype of the Microcircuit Board Repair apparatus will be capable of laying down or lifting metal strips with micrometer dimensions. Under real time computer control, the translation stages will be fully automated or manually controlled. The end user will monitor the process in real time using a camera attached with the source. Laying down the metal lines will be done using Laser C ...

  5. EMP AND HPM SUPPRESSION TECHNIQUES

    SBC: Integrated Sciences            Topic: N/A

    Survival of present day microelectronic circuits depends on their protection from self generated and external electromagnetic interference. This proposal is oriented toward the class of interference generally referred to as overvoltage transients. Means for mitigating these transients include gas discharge tubes, and various solid state devices. Each of these has their own advantages in particu ...

  6. Design and Synthesis of Novel Nanolaminate Materials of the B-C-N-Ti System

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Novel nanolaminate materials produced and modeled at BlRL/Northwestern University have remarkable and technologically attractive properties achieving superhardnesses significantly above that of either component alone. This suggests that the materials combination of a refractory metal such as titanium, with boron-carbon-nitrogen hierarchical structures, provide new approaches for rational design o ...

  7. The Development of a Polymer/Ceramic Hierarchical Design Nanocomposite

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Composites consisting of a polymer matrix bonded ceramic filler have significant potential in strength, hardness, elastic modulus, wear resistance and chemical resistance which has not been realized in state-of-the-art systems. Nature provides many examples of organic (polymer)/inorganic nanocomposites in shells, bones, teeth and horn which incorporate hierarchical design and exhibit high strengt ...

  8. A High Density Liquid Hydride Based Hydrogen Storage System

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    A liquid chemical hydride-based hydrogen storage system is proposed for high density hydrogen supply for fuel cell power generation applications. Research works performed at MER showed that certain liquid hydrides can be catalytically dehydrogenated at temperatures as low as 150¿C. The released hydrogen gas can be withdrawn from the system through a hydrogen permeable membrane to achieve comple ...

  9. A Prolonged Discharge Capacitive Energy Storage System

    SBC: Nanomaterials Research LLC            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR Phase I project aims to develop a capacitive energy storage system for UPS applications. The challenge is taken in consideration of the dielectric materials, the design of the capacitor array, and the discharge regulation in the circuit. The innovation emphasizes the development of capacitors with nanostructured dielectrics, in which the discharge process is governed by distributed rel ...

  10. Nanofibrils Carbon Electrode for Rechargeable Batteries

    SBC: Nanomaterials Research LLC            Topic: N/A

    Graphite carbon electrodes have been used as the anode in recently commercialized rechargeable lithium batteries. However, the energy densities achieved to date for secondary lithium batteries have fallen far short of the theoretically attained mark. The specific energy or capacity of the Li-ion system, and for the anode process in particular, the Li intercalation efficiency, and the irreversibl ...
