  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. THE DEVELOPMENT OF A PROCESS FOR MAKING MULTIFILAMENTARY NBN

    SBC: Supercon, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    PRESENTLY, THE ONLY SUPERCONDUCTOR AVAILABLE COMMERCIALLY INSIGNIFICANT VOLUME FOR OPERATION AT FIELDS ABOVE 12 T, IS NB3SN, AND IT HAS BEEN SHOWN TO BE SENSITIVE TO IRRADIATION DAMAGE AND TO HAVE VERY SIGNIFICANT STRAIN SENSITIVITY, PARTICULARLY AT HIGH FIELDS. BOTH OF THESE FACTS MAKE LARGE HIGH-FIELD PLASMA CONFINEMENT MAGNETS COSTLY AND DIFFICULT TO DESIGN. NBN HAS BEEN MADE IN SMALL QUANTITIE ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. HOT DEFORMATION OF NIOBIUM NITRIDE COMPOSITES

    SBC: Supercon, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    FOR SEVERAL YEARS THE FUSION COMMUNITY HAS RECOGNIZED THE NEED FOR A HIGH FIELD SUPERCONDUCTOR WITH ENHANCED STRAIN AND RADIATION RESISTANCE. NIOBIUM NITRIDE (NBN) DEMONSTRATES THESE CAPABILITIES. PRESENT TECHNIQUES TO MANUFACTURE MULTIFILAMENT NBN CONDUCTORS EMPLOY SOME KIND OF DEPOSITION PROCESS SUCH AS SPUTTERING OR CHEMICAL VAPOR DEPOSITION. THERMAL NITRIDING OF NIOBIUM REQUIRES HIGH TEMPERATU ...

  6. INCREASED TIN CONTENT IN A DUCTILE MATRIX FOR NIOBIUM TIN CONDUCTORS

    SBC: Supercon, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    AVAILIBILITY OF SILICON RADIATION DETECTORS WITH LARGE SENSITIVE DEPTHS HAS BEEN SERIOUSLY RESTRICTED BY LACK OF A GOOD SUPPLY OF VERY HIGH RESISTIVITY, HIGH QUALITY, SINGLE CRYSTALS OF SILICON. THIS PROGRAM IS DIRECTED AT A COST-EFFECTIVE AND RELIABLE METHOD FOR MAKING SILICON FOR DETECTORS WITH SENSITIVE DEPTHS BEYOND SEVERAL MILLIMETERS. THE METHOD IS BASED ON AN INNOVATIVE CONCEPT FOR CIRCUMVE ...

  7. ENHANCEMENT OF TRANSPORT CURRENT DENSITY IN YBA2CU3O7-X SUPERCONDUCTORS USING LOW TEMPERATURE DENSIFICATION

    SBC: Supercon, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE DISCOVERY OF THE YBA(2)CU(3)O(7)-(X)(123) SUPERCONDUCTORS WITH A CRITICAL TEMPERATURE (T(C)) WELL ABOVE LIQUID NITROGEN TEMPERATURES BROUGHT THE LEVEL OF INTEREST AND EXCITEMENT IN SUPERCONDUCTIVITY TO UNPRECEDENTED HEIGHTS. UNFORTUNATELY, THE TRANSPORT CURRENT DENSITY (J(C)) OF THIS MATERIAL, ESPECIALLY IN BULK-PROCESSED POLYCRYSTALLINE POWDERS, IS NOT HIGH ENOUGH. THIS IS BELIEVED TO BE DUE ...

  8. AN INTELLIGENT ROBOT CONTROLLER SENSORY PROCESSING SYSTEM FOR UNSTRUCTURED ENVIRONMENTS

    SBC: Intelligent Automation Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT IS A TECHNICAL STUDY OF A DISTRIBUTED ROBOT CONTROL SYSTEM. THE SENSORY PROCESSING PORTION OF THECONTROLLER WILL BE STUDIED IN DETAIL WITH ATTENTION BEING FOCUSED ON INDUSTRIAL AND MOBILE TELEROBOTIC APPLICATIONS IN THE NUCLEAR POWER INDUSTRY. A THREE DIMINSIONAL MACHINE VISION SYSTEM AND PARALLEL COMPUTATION HARDWARE WILL BE USED TO PROCESS DENSE PIXEL LEVEL INFORMATION FROM VIDEO CA ...
