  1. Rapid Fabrication of Precise SiC Mirror Substrates

    SBC: Sandia Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Sandia Systems, Inc. will apply novel processing techniques to demonstrate an improved fabrication process for SiC optical elements. We will combine the CVD of SiC replication process and ion beam figuring process to demonstrate fabrication of high quality optical elements. The CVD SiC would have no subsurface damage layer, and this would alleviate many of the materials problems associated with pr ...

  3. PLASMA CATHODE FOR HIGH POWER PHOTOIONIZED LASERS AND PLASMA SWITCHES

    SBC: Tetra Corporation            Topic: N/A

    EFFICIENCY OF HIGH POWER UV-PHOTOIONIZED EXCIMER AND CO2 LASERS HAVE BEEN LIMITED BY THE POWER CONSUMED IN THE PHOTOIONIZED SOURCE. THE USE OF SCREEN CATHODES PRESENTS THE PROBLEM OF MECHANICAL STRENGTH. SCREEN CATHODES MADE OUT OF WIRE MESH ARE EXCELLENT LIGHT TRANSMITTERS BUT LACK MECHANICAL STRENGTH, NOT TO MENTION THAT THEY CAN BE DESTROYED BY ARCING. CATHODES MADE OUT OF PERFORATED ALUMINUM O ...

  4. TACITRON SWITCH FOR THERMIONIC REACTOR POWER CONDITIONING

    SBC: Tetra Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THE TACITRON IS A HIGH TEMPERATURE (300 - 1500 DEGREES C) SWITCH THAT CAN SWITCH HIGH CURRENTS (>10'S OF AMPERES PER SQUARE CM OF SWITCH ELECTRODE AREA) AND HIGH VOLTAGES (>200 VOLTS) AT SWITCHING SPEEDS IN THE 10'S TO 100'S OF KILOHERTZ. THIS SWITCH IS FULLY CONTROLLABLE SO IT CAN PERFORM THE SAME FUNCTIONS AS MANY OF THE SEMICONDUCTOR DEVICES (TRANSISTORS, DIODES, THYRISTORS) EXCEPT THAT THE TAC ...

  5. High Voltage Liquid Dielectric Repetitive Opening Switch

    SBC: Tetra Corporation            Topic: N/A

    This program is to develop repetitive opening switches capable of switching average currents of kiloamps at voltages of hundreds of kV to MV's using a new class of liquid dielectrics. This family of liquids has very high drift velocity and low conduction losses for electrons within a particular energy band. The liquid is not subjected to ionization, it simply acts as a conductor of electricity or ...

  7. Surface Treatment for Graphite Fiber Composites

    SBC: TPL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    High performance graphite/resin composites have not realized their potential because they have poor interface-dependent mechanical properties that degrade by as much as 65% under hot-wet conditions. An RF-plasma/wet-chemistry fiber surface treatment is proposed to establish covalent bonding between the graphite fiber/resin matrix interface. The plasma process will establish reactive moieties on th ...

  8. High Energy Density Storage Polymers for Capacitive Stores

    SBC: TPL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The development of capacitor stores are dependent upon advances in low loss, high energy/high power density storage materials. A unique polymer material is proposed as a high energy density storage material. The molecular structure of the polymer will be engineered to achieve a high, nonlinear dielectric constant and a high, nonlinear dielectric strength. Predicted properties are a dielectric cons ...

  10. 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 ...
