  1. Multimode Chiroptical Spectrometer for Nanoparticle Characterization

    SBC: Applied Nanofluorescence LLC            Topic: NA

    This project will develop a new scientific instrument optimized for the advanced characterization of near-infrared fluorescent nanoparticles that can exist as left- or right-handed structures (enantiomers). Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) are currently the leading example of such nanomaterials. Applied NanoFluorescence, LLC (ANF) proposes a novel multi-mode chiroptical spectrometer that ca ...

  2. Precision 10 kV Programmable Voltage Source

    SBC: Low Thermal Electronics, Inc.            Topic: NA

    Low Thermal Electronics, Inc. proposes to design a stand-alone, programmable voltage source capable of supplying precision voltages in the range of zero to 1,000 volts direct current (DC), with options for scaling up to 10,000 volts, and with a total expanded uncertainty (k=2) of less than 10uV/V for the 10,000 volts version. This instrument will improve state-of-the-art measurements in high resis ...

  5. Development of a Laboratory Scale CD-SAXS Device for Semiconductor Metrology Applications

    SBC: Jordan Valley Semiconductors, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A semiconductor metrology tool will be developed employing the technique of small-angle x-ray scattering (SAXS) to measure the critical dimension (CD) of patterned device structures. The feasibility of the SAXS technique to measure CD has been shown using high-power synchrotron radiation facilities which are not of practical use to the semiconductor industry. The ultimate project goal is to produc ...

  6. Development of a Nemeth Math to Latex Backtranslator System

    SBC: Logical Software Solutions            Topic: N/A

    The project extends and enhances the prototype developed in Phase 1 to obtain a reliable, robust, and complete software environment for backtranslating mathematical documents (containing mathematical expressions coded in Nemeth Math code and regular text coded in ASCII Grade 2 Braille) to Latex. The project is conducting research on: (1) automatic detection and recovery from errors in the Math d ...

  7. Dual-Probe CD-AFM Calibration

    SBC: XIDEX CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Xidex proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of calibrating a critical-dimension atomic force microscope (CD-AFM) without the use of a reference artifact in such a way that high-precision critical dimensions can be generated independently of changes in probe tip shape. We plan to demonstrate sub-nanometer repeatability for tip-to-tip calibration, and demonstrate single-point critical-dimension me ...

  8. Feasibility test of on-line coaching for the collaborative reform model

    SBC: Evaluation and Applied Research Associates            Topic: N/A

    The proposed research seeks to test the feasibility of integrating on-line coaching and technical assistance into the Collaborative Reform Model, a school improvement and community involvement program of the Louisiana Alliance for Education Reform. The Alliance has worked with school districts in the rural parishes of southeast Louisiana since 1992, providing leadership training, structured coachi ...

  9. Conundrum: A Project to Computerize the Comprehensive

    SBC: The Evans Associates            Topic: N/A

    CSMP is an exciting K-6 math program, designated as an "exemplary educational program that works¿ by the U.S. Department of Education, which funded its development, evaluation, and dissemination. Its spiral, problem solving approach uses picture languages, abaci, and technically challenging games. Simple problems subtly introduce sophisticated concepts. While class and teacher-student intera ...
