  1. NONINTRUSIVE PHOTOACOUSTIC CHARACTERIZATION OF CRITICAL PROPERTIES IN HIGH TC SUPERCONDUCTING MATERIALS

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    THE RECENT DISCOVERY OF NEW HIGH TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTOR SYSTEMS HAS CREATED A NEED TO DEVELOP COMPATIBLE MEASUREMENTTECHNIQUES TO CHARACTERIZE THE ELECTRICAL, STRUCTURAL, ACOUSTIC AND OPTICAL PROPERTIES OF THESE MATERIALS. ALTHOUGH MANY STANDARD METHODS OF MEASURING CONVENTIONAL SUPERCONDUCTING MATERIALS CAN BE ADAPTED TO NEW HIGH TC SUPERCONDUCTOR SYSTEMS, EFFECTIVE MEASUREMENT OF CRITICAL PR ...

  2. FIBER-OPTIC FOURIER-TRANSFORM SPECTROMETER FOR FLUORESENCE MEASUREMENTS IN BIOLOGICAL SYSTEMS

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    FIBER-OPTIC SENSORS, IN CONJUNCTION WITH FLUORESCENCE SPECTROSCOPY, HAS MANY USES IN BIOCHEMISTRY, IMMUNOASSAYS, AND CLOSED-AQUACULTURE SYSTEMS. THE USE OF IN SITU FLUORESCENCE MEASUREMENT DURING FIELD TESTS IS HAMPERED BY THE PHYSICAL LIMITATIONS OF SPECTROMETERS RELATED TO THEIR SIZE, WEIGHT, AND STABILITY. TO FULFILL THE NEED FOR A COMPACT AND PORTABLE SPECTROMETER COMPATIBLE WITH FIBER-OPTIC S ...

  3. PREATTENTIVE VISION BASED AUTOMATIC RECOGNITION OF SMOKE AND OBSCURANT CLOUDS

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    FIELD TRACKING OF SMOKE AND OBSCURANT CLOUDS FROM FOREST FIRES OR VOLCANOES REQUIRES DETERMINATION OF THE TWO-DIMENSIONAL CLOUD EXTENT SHOWN IN VISIBLE IMAGES SCANNED FROM VARIOUS ANGLES ABOUT THE CLOUDS. AT THE PRESENT TIME, TWO-DIMENSIONAL CLOUD EXTENT IS DETERMINED BY AN OPERATOR WHO MANUALLY LOCATES POINTS ON THE CLOUD PERIMETER-A PROCEDURE WHICH HAS BEEN FOUND TO BE EXPENSIVE, TIME CONSUMING ...

    SBIR Phase I 1994 National Science Foundation
  4. THIN FILM OPTICAL SENSORS FOR SUBSURFACE MONITORING OF ORGANIC WASTE BIODEGRADATION

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    THE USE OF BIOREMEDIATION PROCEDURES TO TREAT ORGANIC WASTES CONTAINING CHLORINATED SOLVENTS OR CONCENTRATED ORGANICS PROVIDES AN EFFECTIVE METHOD OF REDUCING SUBSURFACE CONTAMINATION. HOWEVER, THE TRANSITION OF MICROBIALLY MEDIATED BIODEGRADATION FROM LABORATORY STUDIES TO FIELD-BASED METHODS HAS BEEN HAMPERED BY METHODOLOGICAL LIMITATIONS RELATED TO THE INABILITY TO VERIFY THE ACTIVITY AND TYPE ...

  5. LASER-DRIVEN DIRECTIONAL SOLIDIFICATION IN HIGH TC SUPERCONDUCTING FIBERS

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1990 National Science Foundation
  6. SBIR Phase I: Multi-faceted Positioning System for Flexible Fabrication, Micromachining and Vacuum Positioning

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1996 National Science Foundation
  7. LASER CRYSTALLIZATION OF SPIN-ON FERROELECTRIC THIN FILMS FOR NON-VOLATILE RANDOM ACCESS MEMORIES

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1993 National Science Foundation
  8. SBIR Phase I: Automated Optimal Robot Trajectory Planner

    SBC: ANALYTICAL MECHANICS ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1997 National Science Foundation
  9. A NOVEL REINFORCING FIBER FOR ENHANCING THERMAL MANAGEMENT

    SBC: Applied Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    IT IS WELL-ESTABLISHED THAT POOR THERMAL MANAGEMENT IS A LIMITING FACTOR IN RELIABILITY AND LIFETIME OF ELECTRONIC COMPONENTS IN ADVANCED ELECTRONIC SUBSTRATES OR HEAT SINKS. FUNDAMENTAL PROCESSES FOR PRODUCING A NOVEL DIAMOND FIBER WITH ENHANCED PHYSICAL PROPERTIES ARE BEING STUDIED. THE FIBERS ARE BEING PRODUCED BY DEPOSITING POLYCRYSTALLINE DIAMOND FILMS ON HIGHLY GRAPHIC, MICRON-SIZE FIBER THR ...

  10. VAPOR GROWN CARBON FIBERS-REINFORCED BERYLLIUM COMPOSITE

    SBC: Applied Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    BERYLLIUM IS A CANDIDATE MATERIAL FOR APPLICATIONS REQUIRING LOW DENSITY, STRENGTH, AND/OR THERMAL PERFORMANCE, SUCH AS SPACE STRUCTURES, HEAT SHIELDS, RADIATORS, AND ELECTRONICS. HOWEVER, THE USE OF BERYLLIUM IS LIMITED BY ITS MODERATE THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY AND BRITTLENESS, BOTH OF WHICH RESULT IN LOW THERMAL SHOCK FRACTURE TOUGHNESS. THIS ALSO PLACES A LIMITATION ON THE THICKNESS OF A BERYLLIUM ...
