Abstract: SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENTS IN EFFICIENCY FOR COAL-FIRED POWERPLANTS CAN BE ACHIEVED BY CYCLES THAT EMPLOY A HIGH TEMPERATURE, HIGHLY RECUPERATIVE GAS TURBINE TOPPING CYCLE. THE PRINCIPAL DIFFICULTY IN EMPLOYING A GAS TURBINE IN A COAL FIRED POWER GENERATION SYSTEM IS THE POSSIBLE EROSION AND CORROSION… more
Company: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc. Agency/Program/Year/Phase: DOE / SBIR / 1992 / 1
Abstract: IT HAS RECENTLY BEEN SHOWN THAT CAGED CARBON CLUSTERS, FULLERENES, ARE PRODUCED IN SIGNIFICANT QUANTITIES IN A CARBON ARC IN A HELIUM ATMOSPHERE AT ABOUT 150 TORR. IT WAS ALSO SHOWN THAT THE FULLERENES ARE SOLUBLE IN COMMON ORGANIC SOLVENTS. THESE TWO IMPORTANT DISCOVERIES OPENED THE DOOR TO SEVERAL… more
Company: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc. Agency/Program/Year/Phase: DOE / SBIR / 1992 / 1
Abstract: LIQUEFACTION OF LOW RANK COALS OFFERS THE POTENTIAL OF HIGH OIL YIELDS. HOWEVER, BECAUSE OF THEIR SMALL AROMATIC RING CLUSTER SIZE, LOW RANK COALS ARE MORE DIFFICULT TO LIQUEFY IN THE FIRST (SOLUBILIZATION) STAGE UNDER CONDITIONS OPTIMIZED FOR BITUMINOUS COALS. IT IS LIKELY THAT CROSSLINKING… more
Company: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc. Agency/Program/Year/Phase: NSF / SBIR / 1992 / 1
Abstract: CONVENTIONAL METHODS OF INFRARED (IR) SPECTROSCOPY UTILIZE EITHER A SMALL THROUGHPUT (IR FLUX) OPTICAL ELEMENT FOR DISPERSION FOLLOWED BY A DETECTOR (OR ARRAY), OR A LARGE THROUGHPUT, SCANNING INTERFEROMETER FOLLOWED BY A DETECTOR. A NEW, SMART DETECTOR DESIGN IS PROPOSED HERE FOR ACCOMPLISHING… more
Company: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc. Agency/Program/Year/Phase: DOD / SBIR / 1992 / 1
Abstract: AVALANCHE PHOTO DETECTOR. With this novel design, enhanced sensitivity and high speed can be obtained in a high-temperature superconductor (HTSC) microelectronic device, using a shingle layer of HTSC thin film. A collaboration between David Genner's group at Advanced Fuel Research Inc, (East… more
