Construction of a Force Probe for Characterization of Microscale Features

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOC / NIST
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $74,967.00
Abstract:
The pressing need exists within industry to accurately measure high aspect ratio microscale structures. For example, diesel injector nozzles are manufactured with microscale holes ranging from 50-200 micrometers in diameter and 3-5 mm depths. One fundamental challenge is to nondestrucvely measure… More

Construction of a Force Probe for Characterization of Microscale Features

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOC / NIST
Principal Investigator: Marcin Bauza
Award Amount: $269,593.00
Abstract:
The Phase 2 objective is to provide NIST with a modular gauge head unit equipped with InsituTec's standing wave probe technology. The complete gauge head unit will be retrofitted to the NIST M48 which is one of the most precise measuring machines in the world. This unit will enable NIST to achieve… More
