  1. IN-SITU OPTICAL DIAGNOSIS AND CONTROL OF PULSED LASER DEPOSITION OF HIGH TC SUPERCONDUCTOR THIN FILMS

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ALTHOUGH MANY POTENTIAL TECHNOLOGIES EXIST FOR DEPOSITING EXOTIC THIN FILM DEVICES, CONTROLLING THE MATERIAL PROPERTIES HAS BEEN A MAJOR STUBLING BLOCK TO ACHIEVING SUCCESSFUL AND REPRODUCIBLE DEVICE PROPERTIES. IN THE CASE OF PULSED LASER DEPOSITION (PLD) OF HIGH TC SUPERCONDUCTOR FILMS, THE EMISSION OF THE PLASMA CAN BE CORRELATED WITH THE QUALITY OF FILMS DEPOSITED. BUT THIS MEASUREMENT PROVIDE ...

  3. Prediction of Equivalent System Temperature: A Computer Methodology

    SBC: Applied Data Trends, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    There is a global trend towards utilization of satellite communications for information services. Equivalent system temperature, Ts, is a significant parameter in quantifying the antenna system/link performance, because it represents the noise power spectral density in antenna system figures-of-merit, such as receiver gain/system temperature (G/T), and end-to-end Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR). Unf ...

  4. Software Tools for Static Analysis of Pointer Usage

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Mistakes made by programmers in the use of pointer variables and dynamic memory allocation is a significant cource of software errors. The development of a suite of tools to aid in the detection of these errors is addressed. These tools will operate both statically and dynamically in order to provide as wide a range of services as possible. The static tool will guarantee that certain pointer ba ...

  5. Next Generation CFD Code for Spray Combustion Simulations

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Despite major advances in CFD technology over the past two decades, simulation of industrial spray combustion systems remains challenging due to difficulties in modeling various droplet physical phenomena and in dealing with the geometrical complexity. The proposed study will develop a 3-dimensional code incorporating advanced physical models for droplet transport/vaporization and spray combustion ...

  7. Optical Water Level Sensor

    SBC: CIENCIA INC            Topic: N/A

    Development of an optical water level sensor is proposed to solve some of the problems and limitations of current sounding tube/protective well acoustic sensors. By using light instead of sound, temperature gradient effects on the measurement are obviated. Furthermore, the proposed system eliminates the need for a sounding tube, protective well and associated temperature sensors, and does not requ ...

  8. NO MOVING PARTS RAIN GAUGE

    SBC: THE CORE GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE U.S. WEATHER SERVICE PRESENTLY USES A "TIPPING BUCKET" RAIN GAUGE FOR MEASURING RAIN ACCUMULATION. THIS DEVICE IS SENSITIVE TO WIND AND MOTION (AS ON BUOYS), CANNOT MEASURE RAIN RATE, AND REQUIRES FREQUENT MAINTENANCE, BECAUSE OF MOVING PARTS. AN ALTERNATIVE DEVICE IS BEING PROPOSED, WHICH INCORPORATES A RIGID, RESONANT TUBE, CLOSED AT THE TOP BY AN ELECTRO-ACOUSTIC TRANSDUCER, AND AT THE BOTT ...

  10. Analysis Software for Near-Field Optical Microscopes

    SBC: Field Precision            Topic: N/A

    The near-field scanning optical microscope can supply information on the shape and electrical properties of surfaces with nanometer resolution. The quantitative interpretation of images is difficult because of the difficulty of electromagnetic field solutions in the near-field limit. We propose to supply software to aid in this analysis. The finite-element programs generate two and three-dimension ...
