  4. Ultrahigh Efficiency Quantum Dot Multi-photon Photovoltaics using Nipi Lateral Architecture

    SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORP            Topic: AF09BT20

    Higher efficiency solar cells are needed to reduce solar array mass, volume, and cost for Air Force space missions. Intermediate-band quantum-dot (QD) solar cells can yield dramatically higher efficiencies than current multi-junction (MJ) technologies. However, several issues must be addressed to demonstrate manufacturable, high efficiency devices. CFDRC aims to develop: 1) High-efficiency, ligh ...

  6. Unified Kinetic/Continuum Flow Solver with Adaptive Cartesian Mesh for Hypersonic Flows in the Earth Atmosphere

    SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORP            Topic: AF08T019

    The design of future hypersonic vehicles requires detailed understanding of flow regimes ranging from rarefied to continuum. Hypervelocity flows are characterized by high temperatures, real gas effects, nonequilibrium chemistry, and ionization. The goal of this project is to develop unified kinetic/continuum solution methods with automatic domain decomposition for a wide range of Air Force applic ...

  8. Carbon NanotubeCopper Composite as Electron Emitter for Passive Spacecraft Discharging

    SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORP            Topic: AF18AT011

    This SBIR project will develop and demonstrate efficient electron emitter based on carbon nanotubecopper (CNT-Cu) composite for passive discharging of spacecraft in plasma environment. A spacecraft moving through harsh plasma environment collects electrons, which leads to the spacecraft charging up to several kilovolts. High voltage between different parts of the spacecraft can ignite arcing, whic ...

  9. Coupled Multi-Physics Tool for Analysis of Structural Profile Disruption Effects of Aerovehicles

    SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORP            Topic: AF17AT025

    High speed air vehicles operate at material strength performance limits and are at significant risk when subjected to additional localized heating that can result in softening, pitting and burn-through the material and potentially change the vehicle structural profile. These effects degrade aerodynamic performance. The team of CFDRC and UDRI proposed to develop, validate and deliver a comprehensiv ...

  10. A Novel, Microscale, Distributable Sensor Technology for Ionizing Radiation

    SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORP            Topic: DTRA14B004

    Terrorist use of radioactive nuclear materials via nuclear and/or radiological dispersion devices (dirty bombs) is a serious threat. Therefore, it is crucial to detect proliferation of nuclear material. Critical challenges include: (a) high sensitivity detection of signature emissions from radioactive isotopes, and (b) cost-effectiveness for deployment of sensor networks across large storage facil ...
