  3. A NEW DEVICE FOR MICRODOSIMETRY

    SBC: Pellissippi International Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL DEALS WITH THE DEVELOPMENT OF A RADIATION DETECTOR TO MAKE POSSIBLE THE DIRECT MEASURMENT OF THE STRUCTURE OF CHARGED-PARTICLE TRACKS IN A GAS. SUCH A DETECTOR WILL PERMIT THE MEASUREMENT OF MICRODOSIMETRIC DISTRIBUTIONS IN VOLUMES THAT CORRESPOND TO NANOMETERS IN A BIOLOGICAL CELL, E.G., THE DIAMETER OF A DNA MOLECULE. WHENA CHARGED PARTICLE PENETRATES A GAS, ELECTRONS PRODUCED DURI ...

  5. MICROFABRICATED DRIVE SYSTEM FOR A SURGICAL SHEAR DEVICE

    SBC: Stc Technology Group Inc            Topic: N/A

    MICROSURGICAL TOOLS HAVE UNDERGONE VAST CHANGES OVER THE PAST DECADE. CUTTERS USED FOR THE REMOVAL OF MICROSIZED ABNORMAL TISSUE HAVE DECREASED IN BOTH SIZE AND WEIGHT. THESE REDUCTIONS HAVE IMPROVED THE QUALITY OF MICROSURGERY BY UNLOADING THE PROPRIOCEPTIVE SENSE, THUS INCREASING SENSITIVITY. THESE REDUCTIONS ARE LARGELY DUE TO NEW INNOVATIONS IN THE BLADE DRIVE SYSTEMS AND MATERIALS. PHASE I RE ...
