    The Air Force interest in hydrogen was supported by Abe Silverstein, associate director of the Lewis laboratory of the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics. By the end of , the Air Force had in progress a number of research and development activities on the feasibility of using liquid hydrogen in flight. The United States Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) is the corporate research laboratory for the United States Navy and the United States Marine conducts basic scientific research, applied research, technological development and prototyping. The laboratory's specialties include plasma physics, space physics, materials science, and tactical electronic : –present.

As a semiconductor for a hydrogen sensor. An overview of future directions for the program will then be presented. It is concluded that results thus far are encouraging and further development work is necessary.

NASA LeRC HYDROGEN SENSOR TESTING FACILITY The facility used for sensor testing is shown schematically in Figure Size: KB. The detection of hydrogen leaks in aerospace applications, especially those involving hydrogen fuel propulsion systems, is of extreme importance for reasons of reliability, safety, and economy.

Motivated by leaks occurring in liquid hydrogen lines supplying the main engine of the Space Shuttle, NASA Lewis has initiated a program to develop point-contact hydrogen sensors Cited by: the development of hydrogen sensor technology at nasa lewis research center Gary W.

Several ground test programs are underway within this office to demonstrate cryogenic fluid management techniques. NASA uses hydrogen to supply fuel for space flight, transportation and electrical power.

NASA has used hydrogen gas as rocket fuel for decades. Through the Centaur, Apollo and Space Shuttle Programs, NASA has become expert at handling hydrogen safely and effectively.

Lewis Research Center, located in Cleveland, Ohio, is NASA's Center of Excellence in turbomachinery. This center has a primary mission to work in aeropropulsion in support of NASA's Aeronautics and Space Transportation Technology Enterprise.

Many of the formal technical publications of the NASA Glenn Smart Sensors and Electronics Systems Branch are listed in the below table. These technical publications are posted on this site in order to ensure timely public dissemination of NASA technical work.

SENSOR DEVELOPMENT. The development of SiC gas sensors at NASA GRC has centered on the development of a stable, gas-sensitive SiC-based Schottky diode. A Schottky diode is composed of a metal in contact with a semiconductor (MS) or a metal in contact with a very thin insulator or oxide on a semiconductor (MIS or MOS).File Size: KB.

For decades, NASA has relied upon hydrogen gas as rocket fuel to deliver crew and cargo to space. With the Centaur, Apollo and space shuttle vehicles, NASA has developed extensive experience in the safe and effective handling of hydrogen. For example, the rocket engines of each shuttle flight burn aboutgallons of cold liquid hydrogen.

As a group of engineers and technicians at NASA’s Glenn Research Center began working on the project inthey learned that a tiny company called Catacel was developing a catalyst with the potential to benefit their fuel-cell system.

NASA's Lewis Research Center, in cooperation with Case Western Reserve University (CWRU), Cleveland, Ohio, undertook development of advanced point contact hydrogen sensors.

An evaluation of sensor technology led to a decision to use a palladium-silver solid state sensor that did not require an oxygen atmosphere to detect hydrogen leaks and could. We have demonstrated the ability of thin nanocrystalline SiC films with various types of conductivity to detect oxidative (O 2), reducing gases (CO, CH 4) with the maximum allowable concentrations for human safety.

It was shown that n-nc-SiC films with electronic conductivity had a higher gas sensitivity S n than p-nc-SiC films with hole conductivity sensivity Sp Author: A. Semenov, D. Lubov, A. Kozlovskyi.

Lewis Research Center is committed to playing a critical role in sustained aerospace leadership of the United States in the 21st century. It has the necessary technical assets, core capabilities, human capital, and facilities to support aeropropulsion and space research, technology, and development.

The Applied Research Center was initially established in South Carolina to serve as a center for research and development into hydrogen fuel and fuel cell technology. Working with the researchers at the Savannah River National Laboratory, ARC scientists broadened the scientific community’s knowledge of hydrogen as a viable and practical fuel for energy.

For decades, NASA has relied upon hydrogen gas as rocket fuel to deliver crew and cargo to space. With the Centaur, Apollo and space shuttle vehicles, NASA has developed extensive experience in the safe and effective handling of hydrogen.

For example, the rocket engines of each shuttle flight burn aboutgallons of cold liquid hydrogen with another. The technology areas discussed are: 1) high-temperature electronics, 2) sensor technology development (pressure sensor and high-temperature electronic nose), 3) packaging of harsh environment devices and sensors, and 4) improved silicon carbide electronic by: The NASA Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, California, headed the sensor technology development.

The NASA Lewis Research Center, Cleveland, Ohio, and NASA Langley Research Center, Hampton, Virginia, contributed expertise in the areas of propulsion, structures, and systems analysis. Several small high-technology aeronautical development firms, including ALTUS developer General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, Inc., were teamed with NASA.
