Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 1992
Budget: 01/01/92 - 12/31/92

QUALITY X-RAY OPTICS WILL BE A KEY FACTOR IN THE SUCCESS OF X-RAY IMAGING APPLICATIONS SUCH AS X-RAY LITHOGROPHY, X-RAY LASERS, X-RAY MICROSCOPES, AND X-RAY SPECTROSCOPY. MULTI-LAYER LAMELLAR GRATINGS AND PHASE PATTERNED X-RAY OPTICS WOULD OFFER ADVANTAGES IN SPECTRAL RESOLUTION, SPATIAL RESOLUTION, AND POWER EFFICIENCY OVER CURRENT X-RAY OPTICS...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 1991
Budget: 01/01/91 - 12/31/91
PI: Unavailable

ALTHOUGH ENERGY DISPERSIVE SPECTROMETERS ARE STANDARD ON MANY ANALYTICAL ELECTRON MICROSCOPES, WAVELENGTH DISPERSIVE (WDS) X-RAY SPECTROMETRY HAS THE ADVANTAGES OF HIGH RESOLUTION AND SENSITIVITY TO A WIDE RANGE OF X-RAY ENERGIES, INCLUDING THOSE DUE TO LOW Z ATOMS. THE STANDARD WORKHORSE OF WAVELENGTH DISPERSIVE X-RAY SPECTROMETRY IS THEJOHANN ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 91-1
Budget: 01/01/91 - 12/31/91
PI: Unavailable

THE APPROACH IN THIS PROJECT HAS THE POTENTIAL OF PRODUCING ASPHERIC MIRRORS WITH ORDER-OF-MAGNITUDE IMPROVEMENTS IN TWO KEY AREAS: FIRST, IN SURFACE FINISH, FIGURE, AND LIGHTNESS FOR SMALL- AND MEDIUM-SIZED (OR MOSAIC) MIRROR BLANKS; AND SECOND, IN THE TIME AND COST REQUIRED TO PRODUCEQUALITY ASPHERIC MIRROR BLANKS FOR LARGE PROJECTS. THE TRADI...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 1990
Budget: 01/01/90 - 12/31/90

MULTILAYER COATINGS VASTLY IMPROVE THE PERFORMANCE OF MOST X-RAY OPTICAL ELEMENTS AND ALLOW OPERATION AT ANGLES AND WAVELENGTHS OTHERWISE INACCESSIBLE. THEY HAVE BEEN USED SUCCESSFULLY IN ANALYTICAL INSTRUMENTS, ASTRONOMICAL TELESCOPES ON SATELLITES, AND IN PLASMA DIAGNOSTIC INSTRUMENTS, AND WILL LIKELY BE AN IMPORTANT COMPONENT OF X-RAY MICROLI...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 1989
Budget: 01/01/89 - 12/31/89

THE PHYSICALLY LARGE DRIVERS CURRENTLY USED TO DEMONSTRATE AMPLIFIED SPONTANEOUS EMISSION (ASE) IN THE SOFT X-RAY REGION MAKE THEIR USE AS LABORATORY X-RAY LASERS IMPRACTICAL. A CAPILLARY DISCHARGE OR SLIDING SPARK DEVICE PROVIDES AN ALTERNATE WAY TO ACHIEVE THE PLASMA CONDITIONS NECESSARY FOR SOFT X-RAY ASE IN ELEMENTS SUCH AS ARGON AND KRYPTON...
