Paper Abstract

The Small Displacement Transducer (SDT) was developed by General Research Corporation (GRC) for the Defense Nuclear Agency (DNA) to assist in the development of advanced materials. The ideal material for many applications has a small coefficient of thermal expansion and a large modulus of elasticity. These properties make a structure using these materials insensitive to thermal loads from solar radiation or from intense pulsed nuclear radiation.
