Abstract : The primary goal of this effort is to develop a fundamental understanding of silicon-based reactives, which are relatively unstudied reactive systems so that applications can be pursued. During this final year (project begun Jan. 2008), we have made significant progress especially in the following areas:1) optimizing the nano silicon synthesis, 2) finalizing our doped silicon work, 3) using multiple-scale structures in nanoporous silicon structure to control reaction, and 4) showing that mechanically activated Si-Al reactives show significant promise. We will emphasize these results in this final report. Previous year reports and publications have more details on previous work.
