Award List:

SBIR Phase I:Ultra Low Cost Electron Microscope

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: David L. Adler, PhD
Award Amount: $149,953.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop a very low-cost, easy to use scanning electron microscope (SEM) for students and small businesses that cannot afford them today. The project achieves this goal by eliminating the costly, complex high vacuum system. In… More

Backpack SEM

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: David Adler, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,858.00
Abstract:
The JPL web page devoted to looking for life on Mars has two images. The first is an image of a hydrothermal pool at Yellowstone: the kind of place life might begin. The second is a scanning electron microscope (SEM) image of the Allen Hills 84001 meteorite. This SEM picture is famous for… More

High Speed, High Resolution X-ray System for Inspecting Integrated Circuits

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: David L. David L Adler, President – (408) 230-7164
Award Amount: $149,525.00
Abstract:
A new type of x-ray microscope is proposed for three-dimensional imaging of integrated circuits, or IC"s. The new microscope can image at resolutions down to 25 nm, and at speeds of over 10 million pixels per second. This imaging rate is over 1000x faster than existing high-resolution x-ray… More
