Abstract:

The work described in this report covers the second year of a three- year program involving intelligent processing of ferroelectric thin films and bulk materials. It is presented in seven parts dealing with automation, powder processing, bulk materials characterization, thin film fabrication and evaluation, electrooptic behavior of thin films and published work. In regard to process automation and intelligence, the two-conductor ac resistance probe was tested for reading stability and response time. Both requirements were easily met, and simulated batching experiments were carried out. The fluid flow pattern for the batching system has required special attention and optimization. Programming of the device drivers which are needed to link the computer and its neural network has now been completed, thus paving the way for making the system totally operational.
