  1. A Detection System for Determining the Concentration, Size, and Depth of Buried Radioactive Material

    SBC: Shonka Research Associates            Topic: N/A

  2. 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 ...

  4. Powder Synthesis and Bulk Crystal Growth of Gallium Nitride

    SBC: CERMET, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The primary goal of Phase I work is to demonstrate the feasibility of synthesizing gallium nitride (GaN) powder. Secondarily, this powder will be used to grow high-purity single crystals of GaN from a liquid GaN phase. This would be accomplished using a proprietary variation of the skull melting technique. Since GaN demonstrates peritectic-type decomposition at atmospheric pressure, the entire sku ...

  5. Type-II Quantum Cascade Lasers for 8-12 Micron IR Sources

    SBC: Qet, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In the proposed research, we will investigate a new class of long wavelength-IR (8-12 um) lasers which was first suggested by the PI in 1994. These lasers are based on cascaded type-II quantum wells. They maintain the electron recycling advantage of the recently reported quantum cascade laser, while circumvent its limitations. Not only can a population inversion be easily created with a nearly 100 ...

  6. Active Mode Millimeter Wave Imaging

    SBC: K&c Tech., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal addresses an approach to millimeter wave imaging called encoded image detection (EID). The concept offers a means of achieving a low cost, all weather seeker for smart munition and submunitions. Its low cost potential makes adaptation of the imager also attractive for a variety of other military applications such as search and rescue, surveillance, and security. Most current devel ...

  7. Infrared Photo Transistor Based on Inter-Valence Sub-Band Transition

    SBC: C & W Microfab, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A novel quantum well infrared photo transistor, which we call QWIPT, is proposed. By taking the advantage of the almost perfect alignment of the conduction band in GaAsSb/InAlAs system, it is possible to integrate such quantum wells into a QWIPT to improve the optical gain and, therefore, the detectivity of the p-QWIP. We expect, by incorporating molecular beam epitaxy growth interruption scheme, ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Chip-Levewl Doppler Laser Radar

    SBC: LIGHTWORKS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Recent progress in self-mixing Doppler sensors have proven that measurement performance similar to that obtained with continuous-wave coherent laser radar is feasible, but with at least an order of magnitude less complexity and cost. We believe that extremely simple hardware signal processors can also be built as single chips, or at most a few chips. This points to the possibility of developing hi ...

  10. Cryo-Radical Chemistry and Cluster Beam Deposition

    SBC: Ionwerks, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A unique approach to formation of nitride materials using matrix isolation methods will be attempted. Large quantities of reactants can be prepared and forced to react under much more controlled conditions than in CVD or MBE. Important issues that will be addressed are epitaxial growth and growth rates, both of which can potentially be better than MBD. A very promising cluster beam approach will a ...
