Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2009
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

Renewable energy sources include electrical generators driven by steam from geothermal wells. To exploit this resource, submersible pumps with extended service lives are required to improve the economics of today¿s geothermal systems. A major problem is corrosive wear experienced by the pump bearings, when the lubricating brine becomes contamin...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 08-2
Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08

In Phase I, we made prototype sliding bearings from functionally-graded, diamond-coated carbon-fiber reinforced composite. In dry-sliding experiments, the friction of the diamond-coated composites against lunar dust simulant was low and the wear was so small that it could not be detected. In contrast, all other tested materials experienced rapid...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2008
Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08

Renewable energy sources include electrical generators driven by steam from geothermal sources. Submersible pumps with extended service lives are required to improve the economics of today¿s geothermal systems. A major problem is corrosive wear experienced by the pump bearings, when the lubricating brine becomes contaminated with fine sand parti...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 07-1
Budget: 01/01/07 - 12/31/07

We propose to develop low cost diamond composite bearings utilizing our new high pressure technology for carbon fiber reinforced 3-D C/C composites and mixtures of pitch, fullerenes and nanotubes. Functionally graded bearings will be engineered to function without lubrication and to operate in Lunar dust. Tests have shown that these new material...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2007
Budget: 01/01/07 - 12/31/07

New carbon materials and composites with 1-10 nm crystallite sizes are low-cost, lightweight, and scalable, and have unique wear and high temperature characteristics. These materials have been incorporated in newly-developed coatings, which have been applied to gas turbine components (nozzles, vanes, liners, and blades) to improve performance. ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 06-1
Budget: 01/01/06 - 12/31/06

While absolute power levels in microelectronic devices are relatively modest (a few tens to a few hundred watts), heat fluxes can be significant (50 W/cm2 in current electronic chips; up to 2000 W/cm2 in semiconductor lasers). Microchannel diamond heat sinks created via microfabrication techniques make it possible to boost heat transfer rates w...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N04-172
Budget: 01/25/05 - 07/25/05

We propose to optimize our functionally-graded diamond/TiC/Ti composite turning tool, with an oriented diamond crystal at its cutting tip, specifically for machining alumina-based missile domes. The material is produced by pressure-assisted sintering of a mixture of the constituent phases in a single cost-effective operation. The diamond cryst...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 04-2
Budget: 01/01/04 - 12/31/04

DMI has produced functionally-graded diamond-TiC-Ti cutters for machining lightweight mirror optics, particularly those made of SiC, with high precision and with minimal wear of the cutting edge. The improved wear (relative to commercial diamond tools) is achieved by orienting diamond crystals on the tips of specially designed cutter inserts, so...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2004
Budget: 01/01/04 - 12/31/04

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will further develop a prototype high pressure/high temperature apparatus, which will be capable of generating pressures of 10-30 GPa at 2000-5000C in mm3 volumes. Having realized this objective, samples of high quality single crystal and polycrystalline diamond by controlled crystal...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 04-2
Budget: 01/01/04 - 12/31/04

In Phase I of this SBIR project, DMI demonstrated the feasibility of fabricating a new class of lightweight, heat-resistant Diamonite(TM)-bonded C/C composites for thermal protection of re-entry vehicles. DMI?s nano-carbon structure is produced by pressure-assisted polymerization of mixed fullerenes/nanotubes to create a new high specific streng...
