Award List:

A NEW APPROACH TO LARGE AREA MICROCHANNEL PLATE MANUFACTURE

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1985 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Peter W Graves , Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $50,000.00

A NEW APPROACH TO LARGE AREA MICROCHANNEL PLATE MANUFACTURE

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1987 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Peter W Graves , Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $230,000.00
Abstract:
High gain, large area microchannel plates (mcp) presently are limited in both capabilities and size by the present means of manufacture. the main problem is that the complexity of shearing to curve the individual channels increases as the size requirements increase. by a unique new means of… More

AN IMPROVED APPROACH FOR MANUFACTURING LARGE AREA, HIGH GAINMICROCHANNEL PLATES FOR MILITARY AND COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS.

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1989 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Thomas J Loretz
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
A prototype of a revolutionary new instrument design has been developed as a manufacturing means for both large and small format, high gain microchannel plates (mcp's). the method used for manufacture has been called the shear method. considerable research needs to be performed to address the many… More

THE MANUFACTURE OF HIGH GAIN, SHEARED MCP'S THROUGH AN INNOVATIVE BOULE DESIGN

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1991 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $49,939.00

THE MANUFACTURE OF HIGH GAIN, SHEARED MCP'S THROUGH AN INNOVATIVE BOULE DESIGN

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1992 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $499,078.00
Abstract:
A unique instrument now exists that can be used to fabricatemonolithic, high-gain microchannel plates (mcps) through the "shearing" approach. it will accommodate mcp blanks ranging in size from 20mm to 85mm diameter. by design, it will produce both "c" and "j" type profile geometries. present… More

Improved Manufacturing Processes for Circular Array Detectors

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2002 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOC
Principal Investigator: Jay S. Ray, President
Award Amount: $68,664.00
Abstract:
Channel electron multipliers are used in a variety of applications including synchrotron research facilities. It is imperative that channel electron multiplier technology be improved for this type of application. Currently, the manufacturing process of channel multipliers is very inconsistent. When… More

Improved Manufacturing Processes for Circular Array Detectors

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOC
Principal Investigator: Jay S. Ray
Award Amount: $0.00
Abstract:
The goal of phase 1 was to create a channel electron multiplier that could be used in an array for configuration in the synchrotron beam application. In order to have little variance in first strike statistics contamination needed to be eliminated from the surface. This was accomplished with phase 1… More

Principal Investigator: Jay S. Ray
Award Amount: $293,453.00
Abstract:
The goal of phase 1 was to create a channel electron multiplier that could be used in an array for configuration in the synchrotron beam application. In order to have little variance in first strike statistics contamination needed to be eliminated from the surface. This was accomplished with phase 1… More

The Manufacturing of Large Soft X-ray Flourescence Detectors

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOC / NIST
Principal Investigator: Jay Ray
Award Amount: $74,274.00
Abstract:
At present the need for a large area, 100 square centimeters or greater, soft x-ray fluorescence detector with high detection efficiency is required for material science and x-ray absorption spectroscopy. The current methods of detection used in x-ray absorption spectroscopy are subject to poor… More

Large Soft X-Ray Fluorescence Detector

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOC / NIST
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $297,567.00
Abstract:
Detector Technology will develop and manufacture a 10cm2 large format cone. The cone will be based on a ceramic substrate then coated with glass frit. The cone will then be attached to a standard single channel multiplier. Detector Technology will also investigate different low work function… More
