  1. NANOMETER-SIZE STEP HEIGHT TEST STRUCTURES

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    MCNC PROPOSES A FEASIBILITY STUDY AND EVALUATION OF THREE PROMISING APPROACHES TO THE FABRICATION OF SURFACE TEST STRUCTURES ON SILICON. SURFACE FEATURES ON THE FIRST STRUCTURE WILL BE PRODUCED BY CONTROLLABLY ETCHING THERMALLYGROWN OXIDES. FEATURES ON THE SECOND WILL BE MADE BY ETCHING PIEZOELECTRIC THIN FILMS. USING THE PIEZOELECTRIC FILM AS PART OF A CAPACITOR, STEP-HEIGHT CAN BE VARIED AND PRO ...

  2. THE NUMERICAL SIMULATION AND ANALYSIS OF COLD-SEASON SEVERE WEATHER EVENTS

    SBC: MESOSCALE ENVIRONMENTAL SIMULATIONS AND OPERATIONS, INC            Topic: N/A

    THE FUNDAMENTAL GOAL FOR THIS RESEARCH EFFORT IS TO DEVELOP A GREATER UNDERSTANDING OF THE DYNAMICAL PROCESSES ASSOCIATED WITH EAST COAST COLD SEASON SEVERE CONVECTIVE EVENTS AND TO NUMERICALLY SIMULATE THESE EVENTS IN ORDER TO PROVIDE HIGHER QUALITY OBJECTIVE GUIDANCE TO THE FORECASTER. THE PHASE I OBJECTIVE IS TO SHOW THE FEASIBILITY OF USING A MESO-B SCALE DYNAMICAL MODEL TO ASSIST IN THE REAL- ...

  3. INTERACTIVE DNA SEQUENCE PROCESSING FOR A MICROCOMPUTER

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    DNA AND BIOSEQUENCES ARE BEING DETERMINED FASTER THAN THEY CAN BE COMPARED AND ANALYZED. PRESENT TECHNIQUES FOR RIGOROUSLY SEARCHING A LARGE DATABASE ARE COSTLY AND TIME CONSUMING. UNDER ALL PLAUSIBLE GROWTH PROJECTIONS, THE PROBLEM WILL SOON BECOME OVERWHELMING. A CUSTOM, VERY LARGE SCALE INTEGRATED CIRCUIT THAT COULD BE USED FOR HIGH SPEED COMPARISON, ANALYSIS, AND INTERPRETATION OF DNA AND PROT ...

  4. INEXPENSIVE PATHWAYS FOR THE SYNTHESIS OF BORONOPHENYLALANINE AND NEW BORON CONTAINING AGENTS

    SBC: BORON BIOLOGICALS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    BORON NEUTRON CAPTURE THERAPY (BNCT) HAS A CLEAR THEORETICALADVANTAGE OVER OTHER TECHNIQUES AS A METHOD OF DELIVERING CELL-KILLING RADIATION TO CANCEROUS TUMORS. COMPOUNDS CONTAINING THE ELEMENT BORON, SUCH AS BORONOPHENYLALANINE (BPA), CAN ALSO SELECTIVELY LOCALIZE IN SKIN CANCERS SUCH ASMALIGNANT MELANOMA. UPON IRRADIATION BY A THERMAL OR EPITHERMAL NEUTRON BEAM, THE COMPOUND PRODUCES LOCALIZED ...

  6. A SUPERCONDUCTING MONOLITHIC FLASH A/D CONVERTER

    SBC: HYPRES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    HYPRES PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A HIGH-SPEED FLASH ANALOG-TO-DIGITAL CONVERTER IN LOW TC SUPERCONDUCTOR TECHNOLOGY (NIOBIUM). CIRCUIT SIMULATIONS HAVE SHOWN THAT THE PROPOSED CIRCUIT IS CAPABLE OF DIGITIZING INPUT BANDWIDTHS UP TO 10 GHZ WITH 4-BITS OF ACCURACY OF HIGHER RESOLUTION AT LOWER BANDWIDTHS (SEE ATTACHED PAPER BY HERBERT KO, 1988 APPLIED SUPERCONDUCTIVITY CONFERENCE PROCEEDINGS, P.826). IN P ...

  7. AN ELECTRO-OPTICAL OUTPUT SYSTEM

    SBC: HYPRES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE PURPOSES OF THIS PROJECT ARE (1) TO DEVELOP AN OPERATIONAL ELECTRO-OPTICAL OUTPUT DEVICE FOR SUPERCONDUCTING CIRCUITS THAT WILL ALLOW THE IMPLEMENTATION OF HIGH DENSITY OPTICAL INTERCONNECTS AND (2) TO ESTABLISH MINIMUM DESIGN RULES FOR ITS IMPLEMENTATION. THIS PROJECT EXPANDS ON PREVIOUS WORK IN OPTICAL EFFECTS IN SUPERCONDUCTING DEVICES. DEVICE CHARACTERIZATION INCLUDES, BUT IS NOT LIMITED T ...

  8. A SUPERCONDUCTING SINGLE-CHIP MULTI-CHANNEL TIMING ANALYZER FOR PARTICLE DETECTORS

    SBC: HYPRES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT STUDIES THE BASIC ELEMENTS REQUIRED FOR A MULTI-CHANNEL TIME-OF-FLIGHT (TOF) ANALYZER. THE TOF ANALYZER USES A SUPERCONDUCTING ACQUISITION SHIFT REGISTER (ASR) AND NOVEL FRONT-END DETECTOR BASED ON RECENTLY REPORTED RAPID SINGLE FLUX QUANTUM LOGIC. THIS SYSTEM IS CAPABLE OF CLOCKING FREQUENCIES TO 100 GHZ. THE PLANNED ASR CIRCUIT REQUIRES DATA AT 50 SAMPLES/SECOND (S/S) FOR A 20 PICOS ...

  10. NOVEL DURABLE SOL-GEL FIBER-OPTIC SENSORS FOR USE IN ELEVATED TEMPERATURE AND/OR PRESSURE ENVIRONMENTS DEVELOPMENT OF A PROCESS TO SYNTHESIZE TUBULAR FULLERENES

    SBC: HYBRID TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: N/A

    THIS RESEARCH AIMS TO DEMONSTRATE THE UTILITY OF EMPLOYING NOVEL FIBER-OPTIC SENSORS FOR USE IN HIGH PRESSURE AND HIGH TEMPERATURE ENVIRONMENTS. THE PLANNED SENSOR DESIGN EMPLOYS A NOVEL "SURFACE COMPOSITE" CONTAINING SOL-GEL COATINGS AND IMMOBILIZED FLUORESCENT ORGANIC COMPOUNDS. THE FIRST GOAL IS TO CHARACTERIZE AND DISCOVER WHAT FACTORS GOVERN THE ANALYTICAL FIGURES OF MERIT. TWO SPECIFIC SENSO ...
