  2. BEARING COATING DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Spire Corporation            Topic: N/A

    SPIRE HAS DEVELOPED EXTREMELY ADHERENT HARD COATINGS CAPABLE OF BEING DEPOSITED AT LOW SUBSTRATE TEMPERATURES (LESS THAN 100 DEG C). THEY INCLUDE DIAMOND-LIKE COATINGS (DLCS) AND ION BEAM ASSISTED COATINGS OF SILICON NITRIDE, BORON NITRIDE, AND TITANIUM NITRIDE USING SIMULTANEOUS NITROGEN ION BOMBARDMENT AND VACUUM DEPOSITION OF SILICON, BORON, OR TITANIUM. THIS PROCESS RETAINS MANY OF THE ADVANTA ...

  3. BULK-DENSITY AL(2)O(3) THIN FILMS BY ION BEAM ENHANCED DEPOSITION

    SBC: Spire Corporation            Topic: N/A

    ALUMINUM OXIDE IS A WIDELY USED CERAMIC EXHIBITING A NUMBER OF ATTRACTIVE BULK PROPERTIES INCLUDING CHEMICAL NERTNESS, HIGHTEMPERATURE COMPATIBILITY, AND HIGH DIELECTRIC STRENGTH. UNFORTUNATELY, THESE PROPERTIES CANNOT ALWAYS BE ACHIEVED IN THIN FILMS WITH CONVENTIONAL DEPOSITION TECHNIQUES BECAUSE PINHOLES AND COLUMNAR MICROSTRUCTURE RESULT IN REDUCED DENSITY. THESE DEFECTS CAN LOWER THE BREAKDOW ...

  7. MANUFACTURE OF HIGH T(C) SUPERCONDUCTING COMPOSITE WIRES

    SBC: Technical research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    IN ORDER TO USE THE NEW CERAMIC SUPERCONDUCTOR MATERIALS IN MANY APPLICATIONS, THE NORMALLY BRITTLE MATERIALS MUST BE FORMED INTO WIRES. THIS PROPOSAL SUGGESTS A WET CHEMISTRY TECHNIQUE FOR FORMING THE SUPERCONDUCTOR COMPOUND INTO A WIRE, WHICH WILL THEN BE COATED WITH A METAL JACKET TO PROTECT THE WIRE FORM PHYSICAL ABUSE AND ENVIRONMENTAL DEGRADATION. BECAUSE THE COATING PROCESS WILL BE ESSENTIA ...
