  2. High-Temperature, Wirebondless, Ultra-Compact Wide Bandgap Power Semiconductor Modules for Space Power Systems

    SBC: APECOR, INC            Topic: S305

    Silicon carbide (SiC) and other wide band-gap semiconductors offer great promise of high power rating, high operating temperature, simple thermal management, and ultra-high power density for both space and commercial power electronic systems. However, this great potential is seriously limited by the lack of reliable high temperature device packaging technology. The objective of this proposed resea ...

  3. Monolithic Rare Earth Doped PTR Glass Laser

    SBC: OPTIGRATE CORPORATION            Topic: S101

    The main goal of the project is to demonstrate the feasibility of a monolithic solid state laser on the basis of PTR glass co-doped with luminescent rare earth ions. The main feature of this new complex material is its ability to be simultaneously an active laser medium and a phase photosensitive medium. That way the same piece of material can be used as laser gain element and a monolithic laser r ...

  7. Novel Catalytic Reactor for CO2 Reduction via Sabatier Process

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: X201

    A novel short contact time Microlith Sabatier reactor system for CO2 reduction offers a significant advance in support of manned spaceflight. Compared to current and prospective alternatives (including microchannels), the reactor will be much smaller and lighter, more energy and resource efficient, and more durable. In the spacecraft cabin atmosphere revitalization system (ARS), the utilization o ...

  9. Equipment for Solid State Stir Welding of High Temperature Materials

    SBC: Keystone Synergistic Enterprises, LLC            Topic: T901

    Stir welding generates high-quality joints in fabricated structure and is the baseline joining process for most NASA aluminum alloy structures such as cryogenic tanks and lightweight structures. Incorporating ultrasonic vibration to critical stir welding machine components will enable and expand stir welding to other high-strength, high-temperature alloys using solid state joining. This project ...
