The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  2. THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SOLVENT ABSORPTION FIBER OPTIC EXPLO- SIVE RANGE SENSOR

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

    SOLVENT EVAPORATION IN INDUSTRIAL DRYING CHAMBERS IS AN ENERGY INTENSIVE PROCESS THAT CURRENTLY UTILIZES ENERGY IN A VERY INEFFICIENT MANNER. THIS IS DUE TO THE FACT THAT THESE DRYERS TYPICALLY OPERATE AT SOLVENT VAPOR CONCENTRATIONS ON THE ORDER OF 7% OF THE LOWER EXPLOSIVE LIMIT (LEL) IN ORDER TO ENSURE SAFE OPERATION. HOWEVER, IF A CONTINUOUS VAPOR CONCENTRATION MONITOR AND SAFETY INTERLOCKS WE ...

  4. ION-IMPLANTED SIMICONDUCTING POLYMERIC DEVICES

    SBC: Spire Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT IS DESIGNED TO STUDY THE PROPERTIES OF NOVEL, SEMICONDUCTING, POLYMERIC MATERIALS TO ASSESS THEIR POTENTIAL FOR USE AS NEW TYPES OF PARTICLE DETECTORS ENVISIONED FOR USE IN FUTURE EXPERIMENTS AT THE SUPERCONDUCTING SUPER COLLIDER (SSC). THE STUDY INCLUDES THE FABRICATION OF SIMPLE DEVICES, SUCH AS SCHOTTKY BARRIER DEVICES, FROM ION-IMPLANTED SEMI-CONDUCTING POLYMERS (E.G. POLYANILINE) ...

  5. HIGH SECONDARY-ELECTRON YIELD SURFACES BY ION BEAM PROCESSES

    SBC: Spire Corporation            Topic: N/A

    HIGH YIELD SECONDARY-ELECTRON SURFACES HOLD PROMISE FOR IMPROVED ELECTRON-MULTIPLYING DEVICES SUCH AS PHOTOMULTIPLIERS AND MICROCHANNEL PLATES. ION IMPLANTATION AND ION BEAM MIXING OFFER A DIRECT MEANS OF ALLOYING LOW WORK-FUNCTION ELEMENTS INTO THE NEAR SURFACE REGION OF SUBSTRATES. PRELIMINARY WORK HAS SHOWN PROMISE, AND THIS PROJECT WILL TEST THE FEASIBILITY OF PRODUCING STABLE, LONG-LIVED, LOW ...

  7. PLASMA-ENHANCED THERMAL REACTION COATINGS OF NBN FOR CONDUC-TOR APPLICATIONS

    SBC: Supercon, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    FOR SEVERAL YEARS THE FUSION COMMUNITY HAS RECOGNIZED THE NEED FOR A RADIATION RESISTANT, HIGH FIELD SUPERCONDUCTOR. NIOBIUM NITRIDE DEMONSTRATES THESE CAPABILITIES. HOWEVER, BULK MANUFACTURE OF NBN CONDUCTORS HAS YET TO BE ACCOMPLISHED. THERMAL NITRIDING OFFERS THE BULK PROCESSING CAPABILITY BUT FALLS SHORT IN THE AREA OF SUPERCONDUCTING PROPERTIES. PLASMA-ENHANCED THERMAL REACTION (PETR) NITRIDI ...

  8. ENHANCEMENT OF TRANSPORT CURRENT DIESITY IN YBA2CU3O7-X FIBERS USING LASER ZONE REFINEMENT VERY LARGE SCALE INTEGRATION TECHNOLOGY

    SBC: Supercon, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SINCE THE NEW CERAMIC SUPERCONDUCTORS BROKE THE LIQUID NITROGEN BARRIER WITH THE DISCOVERY OF THE YBA(2)CU(3)O(7-X) (123) SUPERCONDUCTORS, HAVING A CRITICAL TEMPERATURE (T(C)) IN THE MID-NINETIES KELVIN, MUCH WORK HASBEEN DEVOTED TO THEM. SURPRISINGLY, THE TRANSPORT CURRENT DENSITIES (J(C)) HAVE REMAINED STUBBORNLY LOW IN THE BULK-PROCESSED POLYCRYSTALLINE FORM OF THESE MATERIALS: THIS IS BELIEVED ...

  9. ENHANCEMENT OF TRANSPORT CURRENT DENSITY IN YBA2CU3O7-X SUPERCONDUCTORS USING DUAL-TEMPERATURE EXTRUSION PROCESSING

    SBC: Supercon, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    TREMENDOUS EXCITEMENT AND INTEREST HAS BEEN GENERATED IN RECENT MONTHS OVER THE DISCOVERY OF THE YBA(2)CU(3)O(7-X) (123) LIQUID NITROGEN SUPERCONDUCTORS. HOWEVER, THIS EXCITEMENT HAS BEEN TEMPERED BY THE INABILITY TO ACHIEVE LARGE TRANSPORT CURRENT DENSITIES (J(C)S) IN BULK-PROCESSED POLYCRYSTALLINE MATERIALS BECAUSE OF WEAK-LINK BEHAVIOR. THESE WEAK-LINKS HAVE TWO POSSIBLE ORIGINS; FIRSTLY, THE P ...

  10. IMPROVEMENT OF THE DUCTILITY OF FINE FILAMENTARY SUPERCON- DUCTING SUPER COLLIDER AND OTHER APPLICATIONS

    SBC: Supercon, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    VERY SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENTS IN THE PROPERTIES OF FINE FILAMENTARY NBTI HAVE BEEN ACHIEVED RECENTLY, LARGELY AS A RESULT OF ATTEMPTS TO MEET THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE SUPERCONDUCTING SUPER COLLIDER (SSC). THESE IMPROVEMENTS HAVE, IN SOME CASES, BEEN ACCOMPANIED BY A REDUCTION IN DUCTILITY AND A REDUCED PIECE LENGTH IN THE WIRES EXHIBITING THE VERY HIGHEST CURRENT DENSITIES (J(C)). ALSO,WHEN MANY WI ...
