Abstract
THE FOCUS OF THIS PHASE I PROPOSAL IS THE RESEARCH INTO THE USE OF HIGH TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTORS (HTS) IN ELECTRONIC CIRCUITRY IN ORDER TO ENHANCE THE SPEED OF PERFORMANCE OF THE ELECTRONIC FUNCTION. THE RESISTIVITY OF THE CIRCUITRY CAUSES DELAY OF THE SIGINAL PROPOGATION. THIS DELAY IS A LARGE DETERMINENTS FACTOR IN THE ULTIMATE SPEED OF COMPUTERS AN OTHER HIGH FREQUENCE DEVICES. BY REDUCING TRANSPORTATION TIME AND MINIMIZING SIGNAL PHASE SHIFT OF THE ELECTRONIC SIGNAL FROM POINT A TO POINT B, THE SPEED OR RESPONSE IS INCREASED AND THE FREQUENCY OF RESPONSE IS ALSO INCREASED. THIS PHASE I PROJECT WILL ADDRESS THE APPLICATION OF HTS MATERIALS IN THE PRINTED CIRCUIT BOARD (ELECTRONIC WIRING CIRCUIT) AND IN THE COMPUTER BUSS. BOTH OF THESE AREAS ARE PRIME SIGNAL CARRYING PARTS OF INSTRUMENTS AND COMPUTERS AND IF THE SIGNAL TRANSPORTATION TIME CAN BE REDUCED IN THESE TWOAREAS THE OVERALL EQUIPMENT PERFORMANCE IS INCREASED. ANTICIPATED BENEFITS/POTENTIAL COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS OF THE RESEARCH OR DEVELOPMENT. THE BENEFITS OF THIS TECHNOLOGY WILL BE IN HIGHER SPEED COMPUTERSAND BROADER BAND SIGNAL PROCESSING IN ALL TYPES OF ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT AND INSTRUMENTATION. IT WILL RESULT IN MORE EFFICIENT RADAR SIGNALPROCESSING WHILE TRACKING MORE TARGETS SIMULTANEOUSLY. COMMERCIAL COMPUTERS AND INSTRUMENTATION WILL ALSO BENEFIT FROM HIGHER SPEEDS AND TELECOMMUNICATIONS WILL BE IMPROVED.
