Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $339,289.00
Abstract:
A new type of piezo-electric crystal, the surface-acoustic-wave device (saw), shows promise of offering mass-measuring sensitivity two orders of magnitude greater than that of the conventional quartz-crystal-microbalance in current use for atmospheric aerosol research. the sensitivity of the… More

CONTINUOUS DETECTION OF TOXIC VAPORS USING A FIELD DOMAIN ION MOBILITY SPECTROMETER.

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1988 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Dr raymond l chuan pi
Award Amount: $49,608.00
Abstract:
The motion of a charged molecule through a cloud of neutral molecules under the influence of an electric field can be used to separate and identify charged species by virtue of the differences in collision cross-sections and charge quantities among other charged molecules. the characteristic used to… More

THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SENSOR AND AN ANALYZER FOR ON-LINE AN ULTRA-LOW DEW (FROST) POINT HYGROMETER WITH WIDE DYNAMIC

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1988 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Dr raymond l chuan
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
The ability of a piezoelectric crystal to detect extremely small amounts of mass on its surface accurately is used as a means of detecting the onset of condensation. whereas the conventional cooled mirror dewpoint hygrometer requires at least 10(-5) g/cm(2) of condensate coverage for detection by… More

A REAL TIME PARTICLE FALL-OUT MONITOR WITH HIGH MASS SENSITIVITY AND PARTICLE SIZE SEGREGATION

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1990 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: W. D. Bowers , President
Award Amount: $49,855.00
Abstract:
The sedimentation or fallout of airborne particles can seriously degrade the performance of critical surfaces on the orbiter and space-bound payloads. at present, the recommended method for measuring particle fallout contamination is the witness plate which integrates the particle fallout over… More

CONTINUOUS REAL-TIME MONITORING OF SIZE AND MASS OF PARTICLES GENERATED BY GAS-GRAIN CONVERSION PROCESSES

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1991 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $49,934.00
Abstract:
An innovative, aerosol-particle sampling system will be developed to meet the stringent requirements of nasa's micro-gravity, particle-research experiments in the gas-grain simulation faclilty (ggsf). the system is especially suited to the exobiology flight program's measurement requirements. by… More

IN-SITU CHEMICAL IDENTIFICATION OF SIZE SEGREGATED HIGH ALTITUDE AEROSOL PARTICLES

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1991 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $49,934.00

IN-SITU CHEMICAL IDENTIFICATION OF SIZE SEGREGATED HIGH ALTITUDE AEROSOL PARTICLES

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1992 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $486,113.00
Abstract:
An important component in the study of atmospheric chemistry is the role of aerosol particles. these may be converted from gases, or act as reservoir or reaction sites for gases. because most chemical analyses are performed in the laboratory following airborne collection, the integrity of the sample… More

EXPLOSIVES DETECTION WITH A HAND-HELD FOURIER TRANSFORM ION MOBILITY SPECTROMETER

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1992 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOT
Principal Investigator: Dr W D Bowers , Co-founder
Award Amount: $49,903.00
Abstract:
Explosive detection capabilities at most airports consist of magnetometers and x-ray equipment that were designed to detect handguns. u.s. public law 101-604 was enacted after the pan am 103 incident which dictates that in addition to carry-on luggage, checked bags, mail and cargo must be monitored… More

200 MHz Surface-Acoustic-Wave Resonator Micro-Deposition Monitor

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1993 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: W.D. Bowers
Award Amount: $49,695.00

Miniaturized SAW Sensor Array Field Instrument for the Detection of Toxic Chemicals

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1994 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: William D. Bowers
Award Amount: $88,966.00
Abstract:
As a result of the Iraqi conflict, it is now commonly accepted that an increasing number of Third World countries either possess or are developing the capability to produce chemical weaspons. This increasing weapons threat necessitates the development of highly sensitive and selective detection… More

SAW Array Personnel Monitor for the Detection of Toxic Chemicals

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1994 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Dr. William D. Bowers
Award Amount: $82,607.00
Abstract:
As a result of the Iraqi conflict, it is now commonly accepted that an increasing number of Third World countries either posses or are developing the capability to produce chemical weapons. This increasing weapons threat necessitates the development of highly sensitive and selective detection… More

A Real-Time Individual Vapor Detector
