Abstract
CHEMICAL VAPOR DEPOSITION (CVD) IS A UNIQUE TECHNOLOGY FOR FABRICATING MATERIALS WHICH CAN PROVIDE EXTERNAL PROTECTION FROM LASER AND OTHER DIRECTED ENERGY SOURCES AS WELL AS KINETIC ENERGY HARDENING AND NUCLEAR RADIATION PROTECTION FOR ELECTRONICS. IT HAS ALREADY BEEN DEMONSTRATED THAT ULTRAMET'S A200 COATING FABRICATED BY CVD IS THE 'HARDEST' MATERIAL TESTED TO DATE UNDER LASER RADIATION. IN THIS PROGRAM ULTRAMET PROPOSES TO DEVELOP AN EXTENSIVE COATING MATERIALLASER INTERACTION DATA BASE. TEST RESULTS WILL PROVIDE INSIGHT INTO THE EFFECTIVENESS OF PROTECTIVE COATINGS AND A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF THE REQUIRED CHARACTERISTICS OF SUCH MATERIALS. PHASE II WILL PERMIT OPTIMIZATION OF THE CVD PROCESS, COATINGS, AND SUBSTRATE MATERIALS, AND PERMIT MATERIALS WITH TAILORED CHARACTERISTICS AND TAILORED SHAPES TO BE FABRICATED.
