Abstract:

Highlights of NRL Research in 1986 include Structures were identified for a novel class of antimalarial drugs having a new type of silver coordination glass fibers having an optical loss of 0.9dBkm at 2.5 microns, with a potential for 0.01 dBkm, were produced from zirconium, barium, lanthanum, aluminum, and sodium fluorides as a replacement for silica glass in long-length glass communication links a new monotonic Lagrangian gird tracking algorithm was developed to provide rapid access of computerized data on the near neighbors of any object in many-body systems ranging from battlefield scenarios to molecular dynamics simulations of biological arrays effects of the sea-air temperature differential and wind stress on radar backscatter were determined through both airborne and sea-surface measurements NRLs airborne geophysical sensor suite was used in the remote detection of anomalies in magnetic and gravity fields caused by the earths crustal variations beneath the ice-covered Weddell Sea a system was designed and tested to measure radiation effects on integrated circuits power transistors and solid-state transmitter architectures for wideband high-power shipboard radars were developed surface acoustic wave chemical microsensors were shown to discriminate between CW agents and begnign species a diode-pumped nonneodymium rare-earth laser based on the 2.1-micron holmium transition was demonstrated. A high-energy density pulser was developed.
