Piezoelectric Ceramic-Reinforced Metal Matrix Composites for Vibration Damping and Structural Applications
Innovative approaches have been devised to create multifunctional metal matrix composites offering effective structural and passive damping capabilities. Both functions are derived from an in situ-synthesized dispersion of ceramic crystals within the metallic matrix. In their role as structural-effecting entities, the ceramic crystal dispersions are...

Biologically Self-Assembled Micro and Macrostructure Ceramics, Metals and Polymer Materials
A method to utilize biologically active materials to influence the formation of the micro and macrostructures of ceramics, metals, and polymer systems. The porosity which results can be tailored to be long and thin "tubes" or spherical pores depending upon the consistency of the starting material and the conditions of processing. Densities from...

Construction of Thin Films with Significant Nonlinear Susceptibilities Using Water Soluble, Reactive, Monomeric Chromophores
This novel scientific development introduces a new method and new materials to produce multilayered, nonlinear optical films. Potential applications include electro-optic modulators and frequency doubling devices. The materials and processing steps used result in high degree of non-centrosymmetry in the film, thus forming high net polar ordering which...
