  1. Solid State Neutron Sensor

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: N/A

    Unexpected coupling between nuclear reaction cross sections and the solid state of metal deuterides has been demonstrated in layered Pd-PdO deuterided structures. As a result, high rates of charged particle and neutron measurements have been observed through a reaction initiated by altering the chemical state of the system. Moreover, the system acts as an amplifier of fast neutrons, with a 200-to- ...

  2. A Novel Technique for Processing Advance Composites and Joining/Bonding Epoxy

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: N/A

    The development of a microwave curing method for resin matrix composites and jointing/bonding epoxy is proposed. This technique will take advantage of the ability of vapor-grown carbon fiber (VGCF) to absorb microwave energy with high efficiency. By adding VGCF to resin matrix composite material and epoxy, we hope that the materials can be processed by microwave irradiation in a manner that result ...

  3. InGaP/InGaAs-on-Ge Concentrator Solar Cells for Space Power Generation

    SBC: Essential Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Essential Research, Inc. proposed to develop an ultra-high efficiency, dislocation-free, monolithic two-terminal, two-junction InGaP/InGaAs on Ge solar cells for space applications. The energy bandgap (Eg) values for the top and bottom cells will be 1.7 eV and 1.1 eV, respectively. These bandgaps are theoretically optimal for a two-junction tandem cell configuration. This solar cell will have a pr ...

  4. Novel Processing of Permanent Magnetic Materials via Dynamic Magnetic Compaction (DMC) Process to Obtain High Energy Density at High Temperature (300-

    SBC: IAP RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Current rare earth permanent magnets have proven to be in adequate for higher temperatures (300-500_C) military and Air Force applications. Development of permanent magnetic materials which can operate in high temperature regime will enable design of simpler, more efficient magnetic systems. The More Electric Aircraft (MEA) concept pursued by the US Air Force drives this need. We propose a novel p ...

  5. Resin Transfer Molding of High Temperature Composites

    SBC: Maverick Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Resin Transfer Molding (RTM) offers the opportunity for significant cost savings in the fabrication of polymer matrix composite structures. However, the realization of this cost savings has been limited to lower temperature (e.g. epoxy) matrix composites. The main reason for this has been that available high temperature (e.g. polymide) composites have not possessed the characteristics which make ...

  6. Novel Rapid Thermal Processing (RTP) system for High Temperature Power Devices Applications

    SBC: Maverick Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Revolutionary high power electronics based on new materials such as SiC and GaN hold promise in numerous applications in power electronics, control and distribution circuits, hybrid drive-train automobiles, ''more electric" aircraft (avionics) and next generation battleships. These high-temperature materials require novel high-temperature (> 1500_C) processing schemes for improving the efficiency ...

  7. Advanced Metal Powder Manufacture for MLCC Applications

    SBC: NANOCHEM RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Sensors, capacitors, and conducting features such as resistors and capacitors on circuit boards are produced from metal and ceramic powders 1-12 These powders are manufactured by liquid phase precipitation routes which often start with reduction of metal salts or by solid-state routes where solid reactants are mixed, heated and then milled. The solid-state processing is generally repeated several ...

  8. The Marathon Transmitter: Dramatically Extending Air Time

    SBC: NOVA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The concerted effort to digitize the battlefield via digital wireless communications translates these data transfer requirements to the handset since transceivers can now serve as network nodes. Therefore a primary ingredient to satisfying the digital wireless network demand lies in securing dramatic improvements in transmitter efficiency. Many radios include the capability to dynamically adjust ...

  9. Embedded Sensors via Laser Engineered Net Shaping

    SBC: OPTOMEC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Optomec Design Company proposes to use Laser Engineered Net Shaping (LENSTM), a Rapid Prototyping and Manufacturing (RP&M) technology currently under development at Sandia National Laboratories (SNL), as a new method for integrating instrumentation (e.g., embedded sensors) into metal structural components. SNL has demonstrated the ability of the LENSTM technology to produce near net shape stainles ...

  10. High-Strength, Low AC-loss High Temperature Superconductor

    SBC: Plastronic, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    For motor, generator, transformer, and transmission line applications, demonstration projects have been conducted using Bi:2223 high temperature superconductors. There is the desire to use these conductors in AC applications at temperatures from 20-77K. Currently these conductors use silver or high silver alloys for their sheath material, this high silver content and the bridging of filaments re ...
