  1. 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 ...

  2. QUANTIFICATION OF BIODEGRADATION IN WOOD AT INACCESSIBLE LOCATIONS

    SBC: Engineering Data Mgmt Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1990 National Science Foundation
  3. PORTABLE SELF-REGULATING CRYOGENIC COOLER FOR RADIATION DETECTORS

    SBC: IntraSpec Inc            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES A PROJECT FOR DEVELOPMENT OF A PORTABLE CRYOGENIC COOLER FOR RADIATION DETECTORS THAT WEIGHS LESS THAN 10 KG COMPLETE WITH A ONE WEEK SUPPLY OF CRYOGEN, IS SELF REGULATING IN CRYOGEN CONSUMPTION TO PROVIDE RAPID COOL DOWN OR RESPONSE TO TRANSIENT DEMANDS WHILE MAINTAINING MINIMUM CONSUMPTION DURING STEADY STATE OPERATION, REQUIRES NO ELECTRICAL POWER, AND HAS NO CRITICAL MO ...

  4. PHOTO-CONVERSION OF HAZARDOUS CHLOROCARBONS TO REDUCE ENVIRONMENTAL HAZARDS

    SBC: M.L. ENERGIA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE DEVELOPMENT OF NEW TECHNIQUES FOR SAFE CONVERSION OF HAZARDOUS COMPOUNDS RANKS AS HIGHEST PRIORITY IN THE WASTE TREATMENT INDUSTRY. THE DOMINANT PROCESS FOR TOXIC WASTE TREATMENT, SPECIFICALLY CHLOROCARBONS, HAS BEEN INCINERATION. THE INTOLERABLE QUANTITIES OF POLYCHLORINATEDHALOCARBONS (PCHC) DETECTED IN EFFLUENT OF INCINERATORS HAVERAISED SERIOUS CONCERNS AS OF THE WIDE APPLICATION OF THIS T ...

  5. PARALLEL FORTRAN ANALYZER

    SBC: Topologix Inc            Topic: N/A

    RESEARCH INTO THE AREA OF AUTOMATICALLY PARALLELIZING PROGRAMS FOR DISTRIBUTED MEMORY ARCHITECTURES IS INADEQUATE. CURRENT MODELS OF PARALLELIZATION IGNORE THE PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH THE DISTRIBUTION OF DATA STRUCTURES AND THE CORRESPONDING COMMUNICATION OVERHEAD. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO ESTABLISH MECHANISMS FOR THE AUTOMATIC DISTRIBUTION OF FORTRAN PROGRAMS FOR A LOOSELY-COUPLED, M ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. NONLINEAR FORECASTING TECHNIQUES

    SBC: Deltatech Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE APPLICATION OF HYBRID NEURAL NETWORK ARCHITECTURES CAN HAVE ADVANTAGES OVER STOCHASTIC TIME SERIES ANALYSIS TECHNIQUES AND OTHER REGRESSION TECHNIQUES IN FORECASTING. THESE NONLINEAR SYSTEMS CAN EXHIBIT THE ABILITY TO REPRESENTNONLINEAR MAPPING NETWORKS, TO MANAGE MULTIVARIATE DATA, TO MANAGE TEMPORAL RELATIONSHIPS, AND TO FUNCTION WITHOUT THE PRIOR SELECTION OF A BASIS FUNCTION. THIS PHASE I ...

  8. NONDESTRUCTIVE INSTRUMENTATION FOR MEASURING THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY AND INTERFACE THERMAL RESISTANCE OF THIN FILMS

    SBC: INRAD            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1990 National Science Foundation
  9. NARROWBAND BROADLY TUNABLE PULSED SOLID STATE LASER SOURCE FOR PHOTOCHEMICAL RESEARCH

    SBC: LIGHT AGE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO DESIGN, BUILD, DEVELOP, AND CHARACTERIZE A NEW NARROWBAND, BROADLY TUNABLE, PULSED, SOLID STATE LASER SOURCE BASED ON THE NEWLY EMERGING ALEXANDRITE LASER TECHNOLOGY. PRESENT DAY PULSED NARROWBAND TUNABLE LASER SOURCES OF THE TYPE REQUIRED FOR HIGH RESOLUTION SPECTROSCOPY, PHOTOCHEMICAL STUDIES, AND ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY ARE BASED ON DYE LASER TECHNOLOGY AND ARE RELATIVELY EXPENSIVE A ...
