  2. Ultraspectral Imager

    SBC: Kestrel Corporation            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I SBIR demonstrates the underlying technology required to construct an ultraspectral imager that has the ability to spectrally resolve molecular absorption lines while simultaneously creating a two dimensional spatial mapping. The proposed instrument will have a spectral resolution that is better than 2 cm-1 and two dimensional spatial resolution that exceeds 2 milliradian. Based on Fou ...

  3. Ultrahigh Quality, Single-Crystal Bulk Silicon Carbide

    SBC: INTRINSIC SEMICONDUCTOR CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Silicon carbide materials will revolutionize semiconductor devices for military and commercial markets. The material's wide bandgap, high electric field breakdown, high thermal conductivity give SiC capabilities that far exceed those of silicon or gallium arsenide. Despite significant progress in silicon carbide development, fundamental defects--most prominently micropipes--persist. If SiC is to s ...

  4. Ultra-high Dielectric Constant Dielectric Materials

    SBC: TPL, Inc            Topic: N/A

    NON-NUCLEAR APPROACHES ARE SOUGHT FOR HIGH ENERGY DENSITIES FOR SPACE POWER SYSTEMS. ONE CRITICAL COMPONENT TO ACHIEVE IMPROVED PERFORMANCE IS CAPACITOR STORES. THESE ARE DEPENDENT UPON ADVANCES IN LOW LOSS, HIGH ENERGY/HIGH POWER DENSITY STORAGE MATERIALS. A UNIQUE INORGANIC COMPOSITE IS PROPOSED FOR INVESTIGATION AS A HIGH ENERGY DENSITY STORAGE MATERIAL. AN APPROACH IS FORMULATED BASED ON SOL-G ...

  5. Ultrafine SiC for Optical Mirrors

    SBC: Materials Modifications Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SiC has exceptionally high thermal conductivity and low linear expansion coefficient to resist thermal distortion, high elastic modulus to resist pressure and bowing distortion. It is lightweight and wear resistant. It also has excellent corrosion resistance and outstanding load bearing characteristics at elevated temperatures. Its hardness is only surpassed by diamond, CBN and boron carbide. As ...

  6. Ultrafine HfC/TaC for Rocket Thrusters

    SBC: Materials Modifications Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Liquid rocket engine performance can be dramatically improved by increasing the wall temperatures for operation concurrent with a reduction in the component weight. The bipropellant fuel combustion temperatures are between 3000 "approx" 3500 C. The conventional thrusters and exit nozzles made of niobium alloys have a maximum operating temperature limit of 1600 C. A regenerative cooling technolo ...

  7. TACITRON SWITCH FOR THERMIONIC REACTOR POWER CONDITIONING

    SBC: Tetra Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THE TACITRON IS A HIGH TEMPERATURE (300 - 1500 DEGREES C) SWITCH THAT CAN SWITCH HIGH CURRENTS (>10'S OF AMPERES PER SQUARE CM OF SWITCH ELECTRODE AREA) AND HIGH VOLTAGES (>200 VOLTS) AT SWITCHING SPEEDS IN THE 10'S TO 100'S OF KILOHERTZ. THIS SWITCH IS FULLY CONTROLLABLE SO IT CAN PERFORM THE SAME FUNCTIONS AS MANY OF THE SEMICONDUCTOR DEVICES (TRANSISTORS, DIODES, THYRISTORS) EXCEPT THAT THE TAC ...

  8. Surface Treatment for Graphite Fiber Composites

    SBC: TPL, Inc            Topic: N/A

    High performance graphite/resin composites have not realized their potential because they have poor interface-dependent mechanical properties that degrade by as much as 65% under hot-wet conditions. An RF-plasma/wet-chemistry fiber surface treatment is proposed to establish covalent bonding between the graphite fiber/resin matrix interface. The plasma process will establish reactive moieties on th ...

  9. SURFACE-EMITTING LASER LOGIC FOR DIGITAL OPTICAL COMPUTING

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

    DIGITAL OPTICAL COMPUTING HAS EVOLVED TO THE POINT WHERE VIABLE ARCHITECTURES HAVE BEEN DESCRIBED IN DETAIL. HUNDREDS OF PAPERS ARE PUBLISHED AND SEVERAL TOPICAL CONFERENCES ARE HELD ANNUALLY ON THE SUBJECT. HOWEVER, FEW DEMONSTRATIONS HAVE BEEN REPORTED OF ACTUAL OPERATING SYSTEMS DUE TO THE UNAVAILABILITY OF AN "IDEAL" OPTICAL LOGIC GATE HAVING: OPTICAL GAIN, CASCADABILITY, HIGH ON/OFF CONTRAST, ...
