  2. ADAPTATION AND DEVELOPMENT OF HYPERCARD/VIDEODISK TECHNOLOGIES TO FACILITATE INDIVIDUALIZED MULTISENSORY LEARNING EXPERIENCES FOR INDIVIDUALS WITH DISABILITIES

    SBC: The Tuckerman Group Inc            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT EXAMINES THE ABILITY OF A COMPUTER BASED LEARNING AID TO ADAPT TO THE INDIVIDUAL, LEARNING DISABLED CHILD BY CHANGING THE MANNER IN WHICH IT PRESENTS SUBJECT MATTER. THE ABILITY OF COMPUTER BASED SYSTEMS TO QUICKLY ADAPT, WITHLITTLE OR NO EXTERNAL INSTRUCTION, TO DIFFERING SITUATIONS, OFFERS CONSIDERABLE PROMISE FOR THE LEARNING DISABLED. THESE CHILDREN TYPICALLY REQUIRE HIGHLY PERSON ...

  3. A KELVIN-PROBE CHEMICAL SENSOR FOR HYDROGEN SULFIDE ANALYSIS

    SBC: Arizona Instrument Corpon            Topic: N/A

    THE PRIMARY OBJECTIVE OF THIS RESEARCH PROJECT IS TO DEVELOPNEW GAS SENSING TECHNOLOGY BASED ON THE KELVIN METHOD OF ELECTRONIC WORK FUNCTION MEASUREMENT. THE HIGH SENSITIVITY OF THIS TECHNIQUE TO ADSORBED GASES WILL BE AUGMENTED BY THEUSE OF A GOLD-FILM ACTIVE SURFACE AND ELEVATED TEMPERATURE OPERATION TO ESTABLISH SELECTIVITY AND EXTEND THE CONCENTRATION LIMITS OF OPERATION. THE PROPOSED RESEARC ...

  4. ULTRA LOW ABSORBANCE KINETIC PHOTOMETER

    SBC: Artel Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ONE KEY PROBLEM IN MAKING LOW ABSORBANCE MEASUREMENTS IS THERANDOM NOISE GENERATED IN VARIOUS SYSTEM COMPONENTS SUCH AS PHOTODETECTORS, ETC. ANOTHER CLASS OF PROBLEMS ARE ENVIRONMENTAL IN ORIGIN, SUCH AS AIRBORNE OR SAMPLE-BORNE CONTAMINATION, AND SCHLIEREN EFFECTS. THE PROPOSED INSTRUMENT, BASED ON WELL KNOWN WAVELENGTH MODULATION TECHNIQUES, BUT NOVEL IN CERTAIN CRITICAL ASPECTS, SUBSTANTIALLY R ...

  5. KRYPTON-81 DATING IN POLAR ICE SAMPLES

    SBC: ATOM SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AIR BUBBLES TRAPPED IN POLAR ICE AT THE TIME OF ICE FORMATION PROVIDE VALUABLE CLUES TO AID IN OUR UNDERSTANDINGOF THE CAUSES OF GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE. IT IS VITAL IN THISEFFORT THAT THE AGE OF THE ICE (WHICH MAY BE 500,000 YRS. ORMORE IN SOME LOCATIONS) BE ESTABLISHED. PRESENTLY, THERE ISNO METHOD FOR DATING ICE ABSOLUTELY BEYOND 50,000 YRS. A NEW METHOD FOR DATING POLAR ICE IN THE RANGE OF 50,00 ...

  6. MEASUREMENT OF CARBON 14 ISOTOPICALLY SELECTIVE RESONANCE IONIZATION MASS SPECTROSCOPY

    SBC: ATOM SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    (14)C DATING BY MEANS OF RADIOACTIVE DECAY COUNTING, AND RECENTLY BY MEANS OF TANDEM ACCELERATOR MASS SPECTROMETER (TAMS) IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT IN A WIDE RANGE OF FIELDS INCLUDING ANTHROPOLOGY, ARCHAEOLOGY, HYDROLOGY, OCEANOGRAPHY, AND OTHERS. PROPOSED HERE IS A NEW METHOD FORCOUNTING (14)C OR, MORE SPECIFICALLY, MEASURING (14)C/(12)C AND (14)C/(13)C RATIOS, THAT REQUIRES SMALLER SAMPLES BY THREE ...

  7. "ELECTROPLATED HIGH CRITICAL TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTOR TAPECONDUCTOR"

    SBC: Colorado Superconductor Inc            Topic: N/A

    LARGE SCALE APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS FOR HIGH TC CERAMIC SUPERCONDUCTORS (HTSCS), IN ADDITION TO HIGH CURRENT DENSITY, INCLUDE HIGH MECHANICAL STRENGTH AND CHEMICAL AND MECHANICAL STABILITY. MULTICOMPONENT HTSC LAMINATES WITH JC GREATER THAN 1000 A/CM2 AT 77 KELVIN FABRICATED BY THE CONTRACTOR ADDRESS THESE REQUIREMENTS. ELECTRODEPOSITION FROM A NON-AQUEOUS SOLUTION OF THE METAL CLADDING LAYER IN ...

  8. DESIGN AND SYNTHESIS OF FERROELECTRIC LIQUID CRYSTALS FOR HIGH SPEED APPLICATIONS

    SBC: Displaytech Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    THE LONG RANGE SCIENTIFIC GOALS OF THIS RESEARCH ARE TO INCREASE UNDERSTANDING OF THE CORRELATION OF MOLECULAR STRUCTURE WITH PHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF FERROELECTRIC LIQUID CRYSTAL (FLC) PHASES, AND TO TEST STRATEGIES FOR DESIGN OF NEW MATERIALS. THE PRACTICAL GOAL IS THE INVENTION OF NEW FLC MATERIALS WITH PROPERTIES SUITED FOR INCORPORATION INTO COMMERCIAL FLC SHUTTERS AND LARGE-AREA MATRIX DISPLAY ...

  9. BISTABLE OPTICALLY ADDRESSED SPATIAL LIGHT MODULATOR FOR OPTICAL COMPUTING

    SBC: Displaytech Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP A FAMILY OF NOVEL OPTICAL DEVICES BASED ON OPTICALLY ADDRESSED SPATIAL LIGHT MODULATORS EMPLOYING POLARIZATION SELECTIVE REFLECTORS. THESE DEVICES CAN EXHIBIT OPTICAL BISTABILITY AT VERY LOW LIGHT LEVELS, HENCE SHOULD BE USEFUL FOR A WIDE VARIETY OF OPTICAL PROCESSING APPLICATIONS, INCLUDING MEMORY. THE PROPOSED DEVICES WILL COMBINE OUR ALREADY DEMONSTRATED HIGH PERFORMANCE S ...

    SBIR Phase I 1990 National Science Foundation
  10. OPTICALLY READ OUT SILICON RETINA

    SBC: Displaytech Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    OPERATIONS SUCH AS EDGE AND MOTION DETECTION TAX CURRENT AND FUTURE CONVENTIONAL DIGITAL ELECTRONIC IMAGE PROCESSING SYSTEMS. WE PROPOSE A NOVEL INTEGRATED DEVICE CAPABLE OF PERFORMING THESE FUNCTIONS IN REAL TIME. OUR DEVICE IS BASED ON THE "SILICON RETINA" OF CARVER MEAD, BUT ADDS OPTICAL OUTPUTS, ALLOWING PREPROCESSED IMAGES TO BEFED DIRECTLY TO FURTHER OPTICAL PARALLEL PROCESSING STAGES. THESE ...
