Bonded Magnets: A Versatile Class of Permanent Magnets

Permanent magnets are ubiquitous in modern societies. Devices which use permanent magnets include motors, sensors, actuators, acoustic transducers, etc. These are used in home appliances, speakers, office automation equipment, aerospace, wind turbine generators, medical laboratory diagnostic test equipment, and more. It is estimated, for example, that a typical automobile uses up to 120 permanent magnets in windshield wipers, starter motors, seat adjusters, door lock actuators, fuel pumps, sensors, gauges, etc. The development of Hybrid Electric Vehicle and Electric Vehicle drive technologies has been greatly enhanced by the availability of high performance magnetic materials.

Adhesion Reduction of Semiconductor Dicing Tape

Many semiconductor wafer processing techniques involve the fixing of a thin layer of dicing tape to a wafer during the final processing stages. To allow removal of the die from the tape, the adhesion properties of the tape may be reduced with exposure to high-intensity UV light.

Purifying Nanomaterials by Dissolving Excess Reactants and Catalysts in Ferric Chloride

Liquid phase temperature salts dissolve metallic catalysts like Fe, Co, or Ni, and “wash” them away. John H. Glenn Research Center, Cleveland, Ohio Physical and chemical properties of nanomaterials are known to be significantly different from those having larger crystallites (i.e. bigger than nano), but with the same chemical compositions. Optimal uses of these new nanomaterial properties will likely result in engineering materials that are better than what is available today. Before this can happen, characterization of the physical and chemical properties of nanomaterials is needed.

White, Electrically Conductive, Radiation-Stable, Thermal Control Coating

Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Maryland A highly reflective, white conductive coating system was developed using a layered approach with a combination of commercially available white conductive pigments within a conductive binder system. The top coating is a space-stable, radiation-resistant, highly reflective coating that has been tailored to provide optimum reflectance properties and meet vacuum thermal surface resistivities. The combined layer is a mixture of a highly reflective, electrically dissipative coating and a moderately reflective but highly conductive pigment in a conductive binder. A second, underlying layer of conductive white coating offers optimum adhesion to metal substrates and the topcoat. The system vacuum resistivity at room temperature is approximately 1 × 109 ohms/sq, and has a solar absorptance of less than 0.13 as measured on a Cary 5000 spectrophotometer.
