SBIR Phase II: Particle Metrology and Diagnostics using Microchannel Resonators

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Ken L. Babcock, PhD
Award Amount: $499,142.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II program develops an instrument capable of measuring micron-scale particles using their weight as the measured parameter. At the instrument's core is a novel microfabricated sensor containing a vibrating microchannel. The target particles are… More

Nanoparticle Characterization in Fluid by Resonant Mass Measurement

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOC / NIST
Principal Investigator: Ken Babcook
Award Amount: $89,944.00
Abstract:
This project will extend the microchannel resonator to the level of a few attograms, which will allow measurement of individual particles as small as 10 nanometers with unprecedented resolution. The Phase I effort will prove the feasibility of this approach by miniaturizing the MEMS sensors, thereby… More
