  1. ULTRAVIOLET ABSORPTION HYGROMETER: AN IMPROVED ATMOSPHERIC MOISTURE SENSOR

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL ADDRESSES THE NEED FOR AN IMPROVED INSTRUMENT TO MEASURE ATMOSPHERIC WATER VAPOR CONTENT. THE ULTRAVIOLET ABSORPTION HYGROMETER IS DESIGNED TO FULFILL THE REQUIREMENT FOR A COMPACT, RUGGED, RELIABLE SENSOR WITH A WIDE DYNAMIC RANGE WHICH CAN BE OPERATED IN A FIELD OR LABORATORY ENVIRONMENT. THIS HYGROMETER WORKS ON THE PRINCIPLE OF THE DIFFERENTIAL ABSORPTION OF ULTRAVIOLET (UV) RADI ...

  2. REDUCTION OF SURFACE RECOMBINATION IN SILICON SOLAR CELLS

    SBC: Spire Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THE NEXT GENERATION OF HIGH EFFICIENCY SILICON SOLAR CELLS WILL REQUIRE VERY LOW SURFACE RECOMBINATION AT BOTH FRONT AND BACK SURFACES. ONE APPROACH TO REDUCING SURFACE RECOMBINATION IS BY GROWTH OF AN EPITAXIAL HETEROJUNCTION "WINDOW" OF A HIGHER BANDGAP MATERIAL WHICH IS TRANSPARENT AND OFFERS BOTH LOW INTERFACE RECOMBINATION AND LOW RESISTANCE CONTACT. TRANSPARENCY REQUIRES A BANDGAP OF AT LEAS ...

  3. RADIONUCLIDE-BASED MONITORING SYSTEM

    SBC: Spire Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THE FIRST WALL IN A FUSION REACTOR WILL BE EXPOSED TO AN EXTREMELY HARSH ENVIRONMENT CHARACTERIZED BY BOTH CONTINUOUS HIGH OPERATING TEMPERATURES AND VERY HIGH TEMPERATURE PULSES. SPECIALIZED COATINGS AND MATERIAL THAT CAN REJECT HEAT AND RESIST EROSION AND NEUTRON DAMAGE WILL BE REQUIRED. THESE MARTERIALS WILL REQUIRE TESTING IN ENVIRONMENTS THAT SIMULATE THE EXPECTED CONDITIONS IN FUSION REACTOR ...

  4. SIMULTANEOUS SPUTTER-DEPOSITION/ION-IMPLAN- TATION 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 CON- SIDERABLE INTEREST IN THE LAST FEW YEARS. FURTHER DEVELOPMENT OF ENERGETICALLY-ENHANCED, ION-DEPOS- TION 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. DEVELOPMENT ...

  5. OF SHEET SILICON SOLAR CELLS-

    SBC: Spire Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT ADDRESSES IMPROVEMENTS IN EFFICIENCY OF CELLS FORMED FROM PRESENT-DAY SHEET SILICON MATERIALS. SUCH IMPROVEMENT MAY BE ACHIEVED THROUGH PASSIVATION OF RECOMBINATION CENTERS THAT RESULT FROM IMPURITIES, GRAIN BOUNDARIES, AND OTHER CRYSTAL DEFECTS. IN THIS INVESTIGATION, THE FEASIBILITY OF PASSIVATION OF THESE CENTERS WITH LI AND H WILL BE ADDRESSED. LI CAN BE USED TO PASSIVATE RADIATIO ...

  6. DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW PROCESS FOR THE PRODUCTION OF VERY FINE FILAMENTARY SUPERCONDUCTING NB-TI COMPOSITE

    SBC: Supercon, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE PRESENT INTEREST IN THE NB-TI COMPOSITE CONDUCTORS WITH VERY FINE FILAMENTS HAS DEVELOPED BECAUSE OF THE ADVENT OF PLANS FOR A SUPERCONDUCTING SUPER COLLIDER. THE FERMI ENERGY DOUBLER UTILIZED WIRE WITH 10 DIAMETER FILAMENTS; THE SSC WILL REQUIRE WIRE WITH 3 DIAMETER FILAMENTS. THE REDUCTION IN DIAMETER INTRODUCES SIGNIFICANT MANUFACTURING PROBLEMS IN REGARD TO PRODUCTION AND QUALITY OF THE WI ...

  9. WEAR RESISTANT FERROUS METAL MATRIX COMPOSITES FOR MSW PROCESSORS

    SBC: Waste Energy Technology            Topic: N/A

    NEW MATERIALS ARE NEEDED FOR THE SOLID WASTE PROCESSING INDUSTRY WHICH WILL PROVIDE IMPROVED EROSION AND CORROSION RESISTANCE. THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED RESEARCH IS TO DETERMINE THE TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY OF PRODUCING FERROUS METAL/CERAMIC COMPOSITES BY HIGH-TECHNOLOGY, DIRECT CASTING METHODS--TERMED RHEOCASTING AND COMPOCASTING. THE RESULTING MATERIAL IS EXPECTED TO COMBINE THE STRENGTH AND IM ...
