  1. Construction of a Force Probe for Characterization of Microscale Features

    SBC: INSITUTEC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The pressing need exists within industry to accurately measure high aspect ratio microscale structures. For example, diesel injector nozzles are manufactured with microscale holes ranging from 50-200 micrometers in diameter and 3-5 mm depths. One fundamental challenge is to nondestrucvely measure these features in order to validate models, enhance manufacturing processes, and reduce fuel emissions ...

  5. Reliable High Performance Carbon Nanotube and LaB6 Nanowire Field Emission Cathodes for STEM

    SBC: XINTEK, INC.            Topic: N/A

    79658B The reliable fabrication of high performance point electron sources is required for scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM) systems with brightness greater than 109 Amp/cm2/steradian at an extraction voltage of 100 kV. Conventional point sources require a high vacuum for stable operation, and tip failure occurs by vacuum arcing and unstable emission due to atom migration. This p ...
