  1. Bipolar Lead Acid Batteries Using Polymer/carbon Composite Bipolar

    SBC: BIPOLAR TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: N/A

    WORKERS AT BRIGHAM YOUNG UNIVERSITY, BIPOLAR TECHNOLOGIES, HAVE DEVELOPED A MATERIAL FOR USE AS A BIPOLAR ELECTRODE SUPPORT WHICH WILL RESULT IN MORE LIGHTWEIGHT, LONGER LIFE BATTERIES. THE ELECTRODE SUPPORT IS A COMPOSITE MATERIAL COMPOSED OF LOW SURFACE AREA CARBON/POLYMER COMPOSITE MATERIAL WHICH HAS LOW ELECTRICAL RESISTANCE, CHEMICALLY STABLE, AND HAS LOW ACTIVITY FOR OXYGEN EVOLUTION, AN UND ...

  2. Capillary Discharge X-Ray Laser Driver

    SBC: Multilayer Optics And X-ray            Topic: N/A

    A compact x-ray laser driver with a high repetition rate is the subject of this phase I project. Most existing x-ray laser drivers are huge (1000s of square feet of floor space), expensive ($10,000,000+), have a low repetition rate (1/hr), are complex and require several PhDs to keep them working. Thus applications of present x-ray lasers are limited. In contrast, the proposed laser will occupy on ...

  3. Micro Disk Systems for Inertial Sensing and Optical Beam Control

    SBC: STERLING RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Sarcos is currently developing a technology that can lead to low-cost millimeter-scale gyroscopes, multi axis inertial sensors, and very compact laser scanning devices. This technology, called Micro Disk Systems (MDS), is based on levitating a small disk above a VLSI substrate using electrostatic fields. AC stabilization of the fields ensures that the disk position remains suitable, and field-base ...

  5. Advanced High Energy Density Capacitor Technology

    SBC: Tetra Corporation            Topic: N/A

    CAPACITOR TECHNOLOGY IS A MAJOR DRIVER FOR THE SIZE AND COST OF MANY SPACE POWER CONDITIONING SYSTEMS. CURRENT TECHNOLOGY FOR HIGH VOLTAGE (>100V), HIGH FREQUENCY (HIGH REP RATE) CAPACITORS IS LIMITED TO AN ENERGY DENSITY LESS THAN 7500 J/M3. WE ARE PROPOSIING A REVOLUTIONARY CAPACITOR TECHNOLOGY WHICH PROMISES TO INCREASE CAPACITOR ENERGY DENSITIES BY AFACTOR OF MORE THAN 100. IN MANY APPLICATION ...

  6. High Current Cathodes with Controlled A-K Gap Glosure

    SBC: Tetra Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED PROGRAM USES POLARIZATION REVERSAL ON FERROELECTRIC MATERIALS THAT YIELD CURRENT DENSITIES IN THE kA/cm2 RANGE. THE FAST CHANGE IN THE POLARIZATION VECTOR WITHIN THE MATERIAL RESULTS IN A TRANSITION THAT LIBERATES THE POLARIZATION INDUCED CHARGES (4 P) RESULTING IN A CURRENT PULSE LIMITED ONLY BY THE TRANSITION TIME AND SPACE CHARGE EFFECTS. THE PROPOSED PROGRAM WILL DEVELOP THE TECHN ...

  7. Miniature, Ultrasensitive, Solid State Sensor for Atomic Oxygen

    SBC: TPL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    An extremely sensitive, low power, high durability solid state atomic oxygen sensor system with the potential for cost effective fabrication is proposed. It should lead to 1) improved understanding of the levels of atomic oxygen encountered during space missions; 2)quantification of the effects of atomic oxygen on a variety of materials in the space environment; 3) a warning mechanism for potentia ...

  8. Radiation Hard Detector Array for Visible Light, Gamma Rays and

    SBC: TPL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    NEW TECHNOLOGIES ARE REQUIRED FOR THE DETECTION AND IMAGING OF VISIBLE LIGHT, GAMMA RAYS AND NEUTRONS IN HIGH RADIATION ENVIRONMENTS SUCH AS THOSE ENCOUNTERED IN SPACE. CURRENTLY AVAILABLE, CRYSTALLINE SILICON DETECTOR ARRAYS SUCH AS CHARGE COUPLED DEVICES (CCD) ARE EXTREMELY SUSCEPTIBLE TO RADIATION DAMAGE AND A FEW KILORADS OF HIGH ENERGY PROTONS CAN SERIOUSLY DEGRADE PERFORMANCE IN A MATTER OF ...
