Phase 2 STTR

Institution: National Renewable Energy Laboratory

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF04-T002
Budget: 01/19/06 - 01/19/08

The quench-protection strategy at 77 K identified in the Phase I STTR program involves depositing a thin film of a ceramic insulation having a large thermal conductivity at 77 K. Two ceramics were identified for this strategy, ZnO and Zn2GeO4, and in the Phase II STTR program the deposition properties of these ceramics will be explored (sputter...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Pittsburgh

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF04-T002
Budget: 08/13/04 - 05/13/05

An assessment will be made of two quench-protection strategies for HTS conductors, one based on dielectric insulations with enhanced thermal properties and the other on a cryovaristor technology. Three insulations are considered: ceramic powders in Formvar, sputtered ceramics, and diamond films. Both strategies make use of established database...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO99-005
Budget: 08/05/99 - 02/05/00

A Phase I SBIR program is proposed to develop a dielectric insulation having a large thermal conductivity in the 60-80 K range for the quench protection of Ni/YBCO/Ag tapes. A composite approach will be taken where ceramic powders having a large thermal conductivity are mixed with an organic carrier (either GE 7031 or Formvar) that cures at roo...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO98-005
Budget: 06/22/98 - 12/21/98

A six-month, $91,305 Phase I SBIR program is proposed to perform ceramic-composition R&D aimed at cryogenic capacitors for the 120 - 240 K temperature range. Candidate compositions from three families of ceramics will be made under subcontract by NexTech Mat'ls Ltd and measured by CeramPhysics, 120 - 240 K (dielectric constant, loss tangent, fre...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF91-139
Budget: 09/26/92 - 09/26/94

A 24-month Phase II program is proposed to identify the optimum dielectric insulation material for thermal stabilization of the "powder-in-tube" YBCO/Ni HTSC conductor, 20-90 K. Candidate insulation materials identified/recommended in Phase I will be progressively narrowed through measurements of thermal conductivity, specific heat, thermal exp...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 92-2
Budget: 01/01/92 - 12/31/92
PI: Unavailable

JAPANESE RESEARCHERS HAVE RECENTLY DEVELOPED ER-BASED ALLOYS THAT HAVE LARGE SPECIFIC HEATS BELOW 15K, AND HAVE DEMONSTRATED IMPROVED REGENERATOR PERFORMANCE USING THESE MATERIALS. THESE ALLOYS, HOWEVER, ARE VERY EXPENSIVE AND BRITTLE. THIS PROJECT FOCUSES ON INEXPENSIVE CERAMICS THAT HAVE MUCH LARGER (PEAK) SPECIFIC HEATS THAN THE ER-BASED ALLO...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF91-139
Budget: 04/12/91 - 10/12/91

Phase 1 SBIR

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

THIS PROJECT WILL MEASURE FOR THE FIRST TIME THE DIELECTRIC PROPERTIES OF SEVEN CATEGORIES OF CERAMIC MATERIALS AT 2 K TO DEVELOP CAPACITOR COMPONENTS FOR DETECTORS AND DETECTOR ARRAYS. ALL CERAMIC SAMPLES ARE IN THE FORM OF MULTILAYER CAPACITORS OR CAN BE MADE IN THIS FORM BY CONVENTIONAL CERAMIC PROCESSING. THE CATEGORIES ARE BATIO3-SRTIO3 CER...

Phase 1 SBIR

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

THE HIGH-TC SUPERCONDUCTOR BICASRCU-OXIDE AND THE FERROELECTRIC BI4TI3O12 HAVE A-, B-, AND C-LATTICE CONSTANTS THAT MATCH ALMOST EXACTLY. SINGLE CRYSTALS OF THEBI-FERROELECTRIC ARE AVAILABLE IN THE FORM OF LARGE THIN PLATES WHERE THE C-AXIS IS PERPENDICULAR TO THE PLATE, AND THIN/THICK FILMS OF THE BI-SUPERCONDUCTOR CAN BE GROWN BY LIQUID PHASE ...
