  1. SUPERLATTICE BUFFER LAYERS FOR LOW-DEFECT GAAS EXPOTAXIAL FILMS ON IMPERFECT GAAS SUBSTRATES

    SBC: Spire Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THE LACK OF REPRODUCIBLY UNIFORM, LOW-DEFECT GAAS MATERIAL REMAINS A MAJOR OBSTACLE TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF ADVANCED MICROWAVE DEVICE TECHNOLOGIES, ESPECIALLY DIGITAL AND MONOLITHIC MICROWAVE INTEGRATED CIRCUITS. SPIRE PROPOSES TO CIRCUMVENT THE SHORTCOMINGS OF MELT-GROWN GAAS WAFERS BY MEANS OF SUPERLATTICE BUFFER LAYERS, WHICH WOULD ACT AS BARRIERS TO THREADING DISLOCATIONS IN ADDITION TO PROVIDIN ...

  2. RAMAN DETECTION FOR BALLOONBORNE LIDAR

    SBC: VISIDYNE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE FEASIBILITY OF ADDING A RAMAN DETECTION SYSTEM, FOR THE MEASUREMENT OF ATMOSPHERIC CONSTITUENTS, TO AN EXISTING BALLOONBORNE LIDAR PAYLOAD WILL BE INVESTIGATED. THE BALLOONBORNE LIAR IS CURRENTLY USED TO MAKE RAYLEIGH/MIE ATMOSPHERIC BACKSCATTER MEASUREMENTS. THE FEASIBILITY STUDY WILL INCLUDE, FOR THE VARIOUS TYPES OF RAMAN SCATTERING AN AN ERROR ANALYSIS BASED ON THE OPERATING PARAMETERS OF ...

  3. RAMAN COVERTED MID-IR LASER

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROPOSAL IS THE DEVELOPMENT OF A PULSED MID-IR LASER IN THE 3.5 TO 4.1 MICROMETER ATMOSPHERIC TRANSMISSION WINDOW. SUCH SPECTRAL SOURCE IS RELEVANT TO A VARIETY OF TACTICAL APPLICATIONS. THE DF CHEMICAL LASER HAS BEEN THE CHOICE, BUT SUFFERS FROM WASTE FUEL MANAGEMENT PROBLEMS. NO OTHER EFFICIENT DIRECT LASING SOURCE IS AVAILABLE. TO OBTAIN SUCH A SOURCE, WE PROPOSE THE USE O ...

  4. ALL SOLID-STATE INTEGRATING DOSIMETER

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    RECENTLY, RESEARCH AT SEVERAL GOVERNMENT FACILITIES HAS RESULTED IN SIGNIFICANT ADVANCES IN BOTH THE ELECTRONIC AND DETECTOR ASPECTS OF INTEGRATING RADIATION DOSIMETERS. ONE PARTICULAR APPROACH, THE LOS ALAMOS MULTIDETECTOR RADIATION MONITOR, IS A MICROPROCESSOR BASED INSTRUMENT, CAPABLE OF INTERROGATING SEVERAL DIFFERENT NUCLEAR DETECTORS SIMULTANEOUSLY. ALTHOUGH USING GEIGER TUBES FOR THE GAMMA ...

  5. ADVANCED ORDERED POLYMER/GLASS MICROCOMPOSITES

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    ORDERED POLYMER MATERIALS PROCESSED FROM LIQUID CRYSTALLINE SOLUTIONS CAN BE USED WITH GLASS PROCESSED BY THE SOL-GEL METHOD TO PRODUCE A COMPOSITE WITH HOMOGENEITY ON A VERY SMALL SCALE. SUCH A "MICROCOMPOSITE" MATERIAL ROD-LIKE POLYMER PBT (POLY PHENYLENE BENZOBISTHIAZOLE) AND GLASS, SUCH AS SILICA, OFFERS SOME POTENTIAL ADVANTAGES. PBT WOULD PROVIDE HIGH TENSILE STRENGTH, STIFFNESS, TOUGHNESS, ...

  6. INTEGRATED DRILL-LOAD-SHOOT EXPLOSIVE EXCAVATION SYSTEM

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AN INTEGRATED DRILL-LOAD-SHOT (IDLS) SYSTEM WILL BE DEVELOPED TO OVERCOME THE CURRENT DISADVANTAGES AND REALIZE THE POTENTIAL OF EXPLOSIVE EXCAVATION SYSTEMS. THE IDLS SYSTEM IS TEAMED WITH A UNIQUE SPIRAL DRILL AND BLAST CONCEPT, THE COMBINATION OF WHICH PERMITS NEARLY CONTINUOUS, RATHER THAN CYCLIC OPERATION. THIS CONCEPT PROVIDES A SIMPLE, REPETITIVE BLAST GEOMETRY, EFFICIENT BLASTING TO A FREE ...

  7. ORDERED POLYMER FILM FOR ADVANCED PRINTED WIRE BOARD APPLICATIONS

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    HIGH PERFORMANCE ELECTRONIC CIRCUITS ARE EXCEEDING THE LIMITS OF EXISTING PACKAGING MATERIALS. RECENT DEVELOPMENTS IN SURFACE MOUNTING LEADLESS CHIPS, MULTI-LAYER CONSTRUCTION, AND HIGH SPEED DENSITY PACKED CIRCUITS DEMAND INNOVATIVE NEW MATERIALS. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROGRAM TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF NEW MATERIALS. PBT (POLYBENZTHIAZOLE) ORDERED POLYMER FILMS AS A SUBSTRATE MATERIAL IN AD ...

  8. ARCTIC ICE EXCITATION TECHNOLOGY

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS COMBINED THEORETICAL AND EXPERIMENTAL PROGRAM WILL INVESTIGATE GENERATION OF ACOUSTIC SIGNALS WITH A CO2 LASER. ACOUSTIC SIGNAL GENERATION HAS BEEN DEMONSTRATED AND THIS PROGRAM WILL PROVIDE THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN LASER PARAMETERS AND ACOUSTIC PARAMETERS FOR THE EXPERIMENTALLY USED SEA ICE THICKNESS OF APPROXIMATELY 30 CENTIMETERS. THE EXPERIMENTS WILL BE PERFORMED IN THE ONLY COMMERCIALLY ...

  9. WAKE MODIFICATION OF BALLISTIC AND MANEUVERING REENTRY VEHICLES AND ASSOCIATED PENETRATION AIDS

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO INVESTIGATE THE POTENTIAL OF INTRODUCING FINE PARTICLES INTO THE WAKES OF REENTRY VEHICLES TO HASTEN ELECTRON DECAY. THE PARTICLES WOULD BE FORMED IN SITU IN THE NEAR WEAK THROUGH THE APPROPRIATE CHOICE OF FILLER ADDITIVES TO HEAT SHIELD MATERIALS. THE FULL WAKE PLASMA/PARTICLE INTERACTION WOULD BE ADDRESSED AND INCORPORATED INTO AN EXISTING FINITE RATE KINETICS WAKE COMPUTER CODE. R ...

  10. SELF-LUBRICATING DIAMOND-LIKE COATINGS BY A SIMULTANEOUS SPUTTER DEPOSITION/ION IMPLANTATION PROCESS

    SBC: Spire Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THE USE OF ION BEAMS AS A MEANS OF ENHANCING THE PROPERTIES OF DEPOSITED THIN FILMS HAS ATTRACTED CONSIDERABLE INTEREST IN THE LAST FEW YEARS. THE FURTHER DEVELOPMENT OF ENERGETICALLY-ENHANCED ION DEPOSITION TECHNIQUES IS EXPECTED TO RESULT IN A NEW GENERATION OF EXOTIC COATINGS WITH NEAR-THEORETICAL DENSITIES, VERY HIGH HARDNESS, AND, AT THE SAME TIME, A CAPACITY OF SELF-LUBRICATION. SPIRE CORPOR ...
