Integration of smart materials into surgical tools and medical devices using vaporizing foil actuator technology.
TS-045092 — Shape memory alloys are metals that "remember" their original shape when deformed and can return to their initial shape when heated. These shape memory alloys cannot currently be welded to other alloys, which significantly limits their use. Current state-of-the-art methods of joining sha…

A Control Architecture for Active Combustion Control in Conventional Diesel Engines
TS-037361 — A novel method to schedule diesel fueling parameters based on cylinder conditions.
For a diesel engine to produce a combustion process which results in a desired trade-off between emissions and fuel economy, the fuel injection parameters must account for the state of the air path system. This is typically accomplished by simultaneously determining the desired air path set point …

Titanium Alloy Optimization for Additive Manufacturing
TS-036918 — Modifies titanium alloys to reduce or prevent columnar grain structures in additive manufacturing
Titanium alloy components produced by current additive manufacturing (AM) techniques may lead to columnar grains, which introduce undesirable anisotropic material properties to the structure. Additional steps can reduce or eliminate these properties, but the processes are costly and limit direct p…

Method and Device to Monitor & Control Efficiency of the Friction Welding Process
TS-015293 — A device that can be readily attached to inertia or direct drive friction welding equipment to determine energy efficiency in-situ during welding, providing real-time feedback for improving control.
Friction welding is a category of solid-state welding processes that uses frictional heat generation at the weld interface to plasticize the work pieces and produce a metallurgical bond. The welding parameters used in large-scale industrial production are typically determined via trial and error. …

Ultra-wideband Antenna integrated compact balun and feed structure
TS-014994 — An Ultra-wideband (8 to 1 continuous bandwidth), extremely low profile, wide angle scanning, phased array with integrated compact balun and feed structure
Tightly Coupled Dipole Arrays (TCDAs) are popular due to their wide bandwidth, good scan performance, low profile, and low cross polarization. However, to realize their full potential, a wideband balanced feed is required. Compact wideband baluns are difficult to realize, and previous dipole array…
