Title: Panel 1 - comparative evaluation of deposition technologies

Abstract

This working group attempted to evaluate/compare the different types of deposition techniques currently under investigation for depositing diamond and diamond-like carbon films. A table lists the broad types of techniques that were considered for depositing diamond and diamond-like carbon films. After some discussion, it was agreed that any evaluation of the various techniques would be dependent on the end application. Thus the next action was to list the different areas where diamond and DLC films could find applications in transportation. These application areas are listed in a table. The table intentionally does not go into great detail on applications because that subject is dealt with specifically by Panel No. 4 - Applications To Transportation. The next action concentrated on identifying critical issues or limitations that need to be considered in evaluating the different processes. An attempt was then made to rank different broad categories of deposition techniques currently available or under development based on the four application areas and the limitations. These rankings/evaluations are given for diamond and DLC techniques. Finally, the working group tried to identify critical development and research issues that need to be incorporated into developing a long-term program that focuses on diamond/DLC coatings for transportation needs.more » 5 tabs.« less

  • This paper discusses the current status of the EPRI's technology evaluation procedure. The main objective of the comparative evaluation is to identify those electric generating technologies that are most likely to contribute to solving major problems of the electric utility industry. Topics considered include the characteristics of the evaluation procedure, evaluation criteria, an economic evaluation procedure, the intangibles analysis procedure, the intangibles rating scales, data requirements, and application of the evaluation procedure. Comparative evaluation of electric generating technologies is used at EPRI as an aid in setting RandD priorities and appropriate funding levels.
  • Chemical vapor deposition (CVD) of diamonds occurs from hydrogen-hydrocarbon gas mixtures in the presence of atomic hydrogen at subatmospheric pressures. Most CVD methods are based on different means of generating and transporting atomic hydrogen in a particular system. Evaluation of these different techniques involves their capital costs, material costs, energy costs, labor costs and the type and quality of diamond that they produce. Currently, there is no universal agreement on which is the best technique and technique selection has been largely driven by the professional background of the user as well as the particular application of interest. This article discussesmore » the criteria for evaluating a process for low-pressure deposition of diamond. Next, a brief history of low-pressure diamond synthesis is reviewed. Several specific processes are addressed, including the hot filament process, hot filament electron-assisted chemical vapor deposition, and plasma generation of atomic hydrogen by glow discharge, microwave discharge, low pressure radio frequency discharge, high pressure DC discharge, high pressure microwave discharge jets, high pressure RF discharge, and high and low pressure flames. Other types of diamond deposition methods are also evaluated. 101 refs., 15 figs.« less
  • Evaluations are made to allow the selection of those projects for further development that are most likely to make best use of R and D funds. In these analyses, the seasonal and annual performance of the advanced system are simulated, based on target steady-state efficiencies for the project. Then the energy savings an advanced unit would achieve over one or two reference systems in eleven representative cities in the United States are calculated. From this and some empirical choices of market penetration, the annual energy savings the new technology might bring about are estimated. By doing a similar and consistentmore » analysis of a number of advanced technologies, R and D projects are ranked in value to the country. The results of the analysis of a number of advanced technologies are summarized, including heat-actuated space conditioning systems such as absorption heat pumps and Stirling-driven and internal combustion engine-driven heat pumps and advanced electric-driven systems such as continuously-modulated and step-modulated air-air heat pumps and ground-coupled heat pumps. Areas in which improvements must be made in order for certain advanced systems to become economically viable are noted.« less
  • Covington Technologies makes available the Therml Impac Panel (TM) wall system to meet the need for thermal mass. With this system, the thermal mass is a 3.5 to 7 cm (1 3/8 to 2 3/4 in.) layer of Portland Cement Plaster, field applied to the building interior walls in the same manner that low cost stucco is applied to the building exterior. The heart of this system is a low cost, light weight, structural frame made with Therml Impac Panel. Using this system thermal mass may be incorporated into your building at a cost that is competitive with current lowmore » mass construction. Over 800 buildings in Southern California use the Therml Impac Panel wall system. The design process used for thermal analysis is illustrated by an example.« less
  • Panel discussion highlights concerning solar central receiver systems are summarized. The development status of central receiver systems is presented.
