  1. DEVELOPMENT OF A HIGH SENSITIVITY XENON LEAK DETECTOR

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    RADIOISOTOPE THERMOELECTRIC GENERATORS (RTGS) ARE COMMONLY USED AS POWER SOURCES FOR REMOTE ENVIRONMENTS. THESE UNITS USE XENON AS A HEAT TRANSFER AGENT. IT IS ALSO NECESSARY TO FILL THE RTGS WITH HELIUM TO A 5% CONCENTRATION LEVEL, SINCE THE HELIUM SERVES AS A LEAK DETECTION AGENT. HOWEVER, HELIUM ALSO CAUSES A 5% TO 10% DECREASE IN THE ELECTRICAL EFFICIENCY OF THE RTG. IT IS THEREFORE DESIRABLE ...

  2. DEVELOPMENT OF A MULTI-GAS PROCESS FOR HOT-GAS-STREAM CLEANUP

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ADA TECHNOLOGIES, INC. PROPOSED TO DEVELOP A CONTINUOUS INSITU ANALYZER THAT IS CAPABLE OF MONITORING THE CONCENTRATION OF AMMONIA IN A COAL GASIFICATION GAS STREAM TO PROVIDE A PROCESS CONTROLLER FOR HOT GAS CLEANUP SYSTEMS. A PHOTODIODE ARRAY ULTRA VIOLET (UV) ABSORPTION SPECTROMETER WILL BE EVALUATED AT TEMPERATURES AND PRESSURES REPRESENTATIVE OF GASIFIER PROCESSES. THIS TECHNIQUE IS PRACTICAL ...

  3. EVALUATION OF A COST-EFFECTIVE CATALYST FOR USE IN COMBINED SO2, NOX, AND PARTICULATE CONTROL SYSTEMS

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE SUCCESSFUL DEVELOPMENT OF A SINGLE AIR POLLUTION CONTROLDEVICE FOR SULFUR DIOXIDE (SO2), NITROGEN OXIDES (NOX), AND PARTICULATE CONTROL CAN PROVIDE A COST-EFFECTIVE MEANS FOR COMPLIANCE WITH 1990 AMENDMENTS TO THE CLEAN AIR ACT FOR COAL-FIRED UTILITY BOILERS. THE TECHNOLOGY FOR COMBINED COLLECTION OF BOTH SO2 AND PARTICULATES IS READILY AVAILABLE. HOWEVER, TO COMBINE NOX CONTROL WITH SUCH SYST ...

  4. DEVELOPMENT OF MICRON TO SUBMICRON THICKNESS ELECTROPHORESISGELS TO OPTIMIZE RESOLUTION IN DNA SEQUENCING USING RIS

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

    TYPICALLY, DNA SEQUENCING IS ACCOMPLISHED USING ELECTROPHORESIS GELS SEVERAL HUNDRED MICRONS THICK, BECAUSE THESE GELS TRANSPORT THE NECESSARY CONCENTRATION OF DNA FRAGMENT MARKERS (FLUORESCENT OR RADIOACTIVE), AND BECAUSE THE TECHNOLOGY FOR UTILIZING THESE GELS IS MATURE. RECENT WORK HAS SHOWN THAT BETTER RESOLUTION CAN BE OBTAINED WITH THINNER GELS AND, WITH A CORRESPONDING REDUCTION IN MIGRATIO ...

  5. MICROMETER SPATIAL RESOLUTION IN SENSITIVE AND QUANTITATIVE BORON IMAGING OF TISSUES IN BORON NEUTRON CAPTURE THERAPY USING LARIS

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

    CHEMICAL AND IMMUNOLOGICAL THERAPIES FOR CANCER OFFER PROMISE FOR CONTROLLING LIMITED NUMBERS OF SYSTEMICALLY DISPERSED TUMOR CELLS; HOWEVER, LOCALIZED TREATMENT MODALITIES ARE REQUIRED FOR MANY TUMOR TYPES THAT ARE UNRESPONSIVE TO CURRENT THERAPIES. BRAIN TUMORS, WHICH ARE PROTECTED BY THE BLOOD-BRAIN-BARRIER, REQUIRE ADDITIONAL EMPHASIS. BORON NEUTRON CAPTURE THERAPY (BNCT) RELIES ON THE CAPTURE ...

  6. DEVELOPMENT OF AN INNOVATIVE LIQUID HELIUM PUMP

    SBC: BARBER-NICHOLS INC.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT WILL DEVELOP A RELIABLE, HIGH EFFICIENCY, VERSATILE LIQUID HELIUM (LHE) PUMP FOR THE SUPERCONDUCTING SUPER COLLIDER (SSC). SEVERAL INNOVATIVE DESIGN FEATURES WILL BE INCORPORATED TO GIVE THE PUMP THE FOLLOWING CHARACTERISTICS: 1) A HERMETIC DESIGN WILL ELIMINTE ALL DYNAMIC SEALS, 2) A NON-CONTAMINATING, RELIABLE BEARING SYSTEM WILL NOT DISSIPATE ANY POWER TO THE LHE, 3) THERMAL ISOLAT ...

  7. NEW BORON CONTAINING AMINO ACIDS AND PEPTIDES FOR BORON NEUTRON CAPTURE THERAPY

    SBC: BORON BIOLOGICALS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    BORON NEUTRON CAPTURE THERAPY (BNCT) HAS A CLEAR THEORETICALADVANTAGE OVER OTHER TECHNIQUES AS A METHOD OF DELIVERING CELL-KILLING RADIATION TO TUMORS. NEW BORON COMPOUNDS ARE NEEDED WHICH CAN SELECTIVELY LOCALIZE IN TUMORS AND UPON CAPTURE OF THERMAL OR EPITHERMAL NEUTRONS, PRODUCE RADIATION WHICH KILLS TUMOR CELLS BUT SPARES NORMAL TISSUE AND BLOOD. THE PHASE I EFFORT STARTS WITH THE PREMISE THA ...

  8. INEXPENSIVE PATHWAYS FOR THE SYNTHESIS OF BORONOPHENYLALANINE AND NEW BORON CONTAINING AGENTS

    SBC: BORON BIOLOGICALS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1991 Department of Energy
  9. DEVELOPMENT OF AN ADVANCED PROCESS FOR SIMULTANEOUS REMOVAL OF SULFUR OXIDES AND NITROGEN OXIDES FROM FLUE GAS BY ELECTROMAGNETIC METHOD

    SBC: CHA CORP.            Topic: N/A

    A MAJOR CAUSE OF AIR POLLUTION AND ACID RAIN IS EMISSIONS OF SULFUR DIOXIDE (SO2) AND NITROGEN OXIDES (NOX) IN FLUE GASES. ADVANCED FLUE GAS CLEANUP TECHNOLOGIES CURRENTLY UNDER DEVELOPMENT PRODUCE CONCENTRATED STREAMS OF SO2 AND NOX. THIS CONCENTRATED STREAM SHOULD BE CONVERTED INTO VALUABLE BY-PRODUCTS TO REDUCE THE COST OF EMISSIONS CONTROL. CURRENT CONVERSION TECHNOLOGIES ARE EXPENSIVE AND REQ ...
