  1. Solid State Neutron Sensor

    SBC: Applied Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Unexpected coupling between nuclear reaction cross sections and the solid state of metal deuterides has been demonstrated in layered Pd-PdO deuterided structures. As a result, high rates of charged particle and neutron measurements have been observed through a reaction initiated by altering the chemical state of the system. Moreover, the system acts as an amplifier of fast neutrons, with a 200-to- ...

  2. A Novel Technique for Processing Advance Composites and Joining/Bonding Epoxy

    SBC: Applied Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The development of a microwave curing method for resin matrix composites and jointing/bonding epoxy is proposed. This technique will take advantage of the ability of vapor-grown carbon fiber (VGCF) to absorb microwave energy with high efficiency. By adding VGCF to resin matrix composite material and epoxy, we hope that the materials can be processed by microwave irradiation in a manner that result ...

  3. Object-Oriented Data Collection and Fusion

    SBC: Cybernet Systems Corporation            Topic: N/A

    This proposal suggests that a basic data collection, management, and fusion framework is ideally suited for integrating distributed data from multiple heterogeneous sources and making it available on a multi-point basis for analysis, viewing, and C**4I applications. The basic framework proposed was built (and is currently under ongoing development) to support object-oriented, temporally consistent ...

  4. InGaP/InGaAs-on-Ge Concentrator Solar Cells for Space Power Generation

    SBC: Essential Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Essential Research, Inc. proposed to develop an ultra-high efficiency, dislocation-free, monolithic two-terminal, two-junction InGaP/InGaAs on Ge solar cells for space applications. The energy bandgap (Eg) values for the top and bottom cells will be 1.7 eV and 1.1 eV, respectively. These bandgaps are theoretically optimal for a two-junction tandem cell configuration. This solar cell will have a pr ...

  5. Development of Diode-Pumped Tunable Ultrafast Mid-Infrared laser Using CO2+-Doped II-VI Crystals

    SBC: First American International            Topic: N/A

    One of the most interesting wavelengths for many science and engineering applications is the mid-infrared band. We propose to develop a new compact tunable laser with output wavelength from 3 to 4 micrometers, pumped by powerful AlGaAs semiconductor lasers. The laser will use a new and less-explored lasing material, Co doped II-VI semiconductors, as the gain medium. The lasing medium has a strong ...

  6. Novel Processing of Permanent Magnetic Materials via Dynamic Magnetic Compaction (DMC) Process to Obtain High Energy Density at High Temperature (300-

    SBC: IAP RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Current rare earth permanent magnets have proven to be in adequate for higher temperatures (300-500_C) military and Air Force applications. Development of permanent magnetic materials which can operate in high temperature regime will enable design of simpler, more efficient magnetic systems. The More Electric Aircraft (MEA) concept pursued by the US Air Force drives this need. We propose a novel p ...

  7. Adaptive Signal Conditioning and Calibration of Microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS)

    SBC: IC TECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A strong analogy exists between today's MEMS device and the first prototypes of the transistor. Research and development in semiconducto devices made the integration of millions of transistors into a single chip possible. It is anticipated that similar market forces will deman the integration of hundreds and later thousands of MEMS based sensors and actuators onto the same substrate in the next de ...

  8. Thermally Insulated Flexible Composite Cores for Aerospace Applications

    SBC: Infinite Materials & Products, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Aerospace composite panels containing a core structure usually use an expanded honeycomb of either aluminum, NOMEX, or carbon fiber. These types of composite panels are often used as structure since the honey-comb core provides stiffness in the "Z" direction. However, they provide no thermal insulation value. Aerospace craft operating both inside and outside the earth's atmosphere experience envir ...

  9. Environmentally Safe, Sprayable, Waterproof, Rapid Three Minute Room Temperature Cure Resin for the Manufacturing of Aerospace Composite Sealants

    SBC: Infinite Materials & Products, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Currently manufactured aerospace composites absorb water vapor to varying degrees. This moisture absorption adds weight to the composite, however, it lowers the glass transition temperature. And, subsequently, the ultimate strength of the resin holding the composite together, in the total composite matrix. For aerospace vehicles that slip the bonds of Earth and enter the vacume of space, any compo ...

  10. Solid State Raman Image Amplifier

    SBC: LITE CYCLES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovative Research Phase I project will focus on the development of a compact, rugged, low-maintenance, cost-effective, all Solid-State Raman Image Amplifier (SSRIA) capable of amplifying low-level LIDAR images and producing gated images with potential gate times of less than a nanosecond. The innovative technology to be implemented is based on a solid-state stimulated Raman s ...
