Award List:

LOW-COST PRODUCTION OF BORON CARBIDE POWDER AND CERAMIC

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1987 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Paul j shlichta
Award Amount: $49,885.00
Abstract:
As stated in the topic description, the army is in need of low-cost high-performance ceramic armor. the best armor ceramic, boron carbide, is currently expensive because of both the high price of the powdered starting material and the high fabrication cost because of the current high temperature and… More

MINIATURIZED FIBER-PULLING APPARATUS FOR PRODUCING SINGLE-CRYSTAL-CORE GLASS FIBERS IN MICROGRAVITY

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1988 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Paul j shlichta
Award Amount: $49,395.00
Abstract:
Gravity adversely affects glass fiber pulling by severely restricting feasible glass viscosities during pulling because of sagging. this effect is especially troublesome for the pulling or single-crystal-core glass fibers, where the requirement of glass/crystal thermal expansion matching vs. core… More

SCINTILLATOR CRYSTALS FOR IMPROVED PET

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1991 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Shlichta, Paul J , Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $41,160.00
Abstract:
This grant concerns the search for, evaluation of, and commercial production of improved scintillator crystals for positron emission tomography (pet) arrays for medical research and the diagnosis of cancer and alzheimer's disease. it is intended to complement and augment an existing public health… More

GROWTH OF LEAD CARBONATE SCINTILLATOR CRYSTALS

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1991 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $49,868.00
Abstract:
This project responds to a need for large-volume, high-density, high-z scintillator crystals for anti-coincidence shielding of gamma-ray astronomy detectors. the combined requirements of high capture probability and ultrashort coincidence windows (decay times) closely resemble the requirements for… More

CONTROLLED NUCLEATION OF PROTEIN CRYSTAL GROWTH

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1991 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $49,613.00

Scintillator Crystals for Improved Pet

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1991 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $50,000.00

CONTROLLED NUCLEATION OF PROTEIN CRYSTAL GROWTH

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1992 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $415,526.00
Abstract:
To support the growth of protein crystals in micro-gravity, this project will improve the control of nucleation by the use of epitaxial substrates, instead of seed crystals or spontaneous nucleation, to greatly simplify flight apparatus and increase experiment reliability. specifically, this project… More

Scintillator Crystals for Improved Pet

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1995 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $652,924.00

OPT GROWTH OF PROTEIN CRYST BY SOLUTE TRANSPORT CONTROL

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1999 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Paul J. Shlichta
Award Amount: $99,909.00
Abstract:
Not Available We propose to monitor temperature and other environmental parameters remotely without hard wire connection or local stored-energy power sources at the sensor. The discrete sensor is a monolithic silicon chip containing capacitive diaphragm structures which monitor temperature… More

SEARCH FOR OPTIMAL PET SCINTILLATOR CRYSTALS

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2001 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Paul J. Shlichta
Award Amount: $148,443.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (Provided by Applicant): This proposal concerns the search for optimal scintillator crystals for positron emission tomography (PET). At present, the availability and performance of PET systems is limited chiefly by the unavailability of scintillators with… More
