Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N161-061
Budget: 07/11/16 - 05/10/17

An environmentally benign surface preparation process is proposed for aluminum alloy pre-treatment prior to coating and paint application. Surface preparation of aluminum is a critical factor affecting the performance of subsequent corrosion resistant coatings. Arcane methods of surface preparation are currently employed that have been followed ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF04-138
Budget: 05/13/05 - 09/13/07

It has been demonstrated that the Atomflo handheld plasma tool may be used to activate polyetheretherketone composites for adhesive bonding. After a 30-second oxygen plasma treatment, the lap-shear strength of PEEK laminates bonded with AF-563 adhesive ranged from 5000+/-300 psi in double notch tests (ASTM 3165) to 6300+/-100 psi in single lap ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF04-138
Budget: 03/17/04 - 12/17/04

An environmentally friendly, on-aircraft repair process for poly-ether-ether-ketone (PEEK) composite materials is proposed. This process takes advantage of a new atmospheric pressure plasma technology for activating the PEEK surface prior to bonding. The plasma is generated in a rugged handheld device that is easily deployed in the field, and ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2003
Budget: 01/01/03 - 12/31/03

This SBIR Phase II project focuses on the development of a cleaning tool for the removal of tenacious organic residues from 200 mm wafers. These residues arise from ion bombardment of the photoresist films during processing. Organic residue removal encompasses approximately half of the cleaning operations in a semiconductor manufacturing plant. ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2002
Budget: 01/01/02 - 12/31/02

70133 The decommissioning and decontamination of nuclear weapons production facilities is an expensive and time-consuming operation. One of the most challenging tasks is identifying the location of plutonium and uranium contamination within a given facility. Physical samples must be collected and sent to a remote laboratory for analysi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2002
Budget: 01/01/02 - 12/31/02

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will establish the performance of the Plasma Flow Source for stripping and residue cleaning of photoresists on 200 mm semiconductor wafers without producing any environmentally-damaging waste streams. In particular, it will determine the effect of process conditions and gas chemistry...
