  1. Random Number Generation for High Performance Computing

    SBC: Silicon Informatics, Inc.            Topic: A10AT012

    Highly scalable parallel random number generators (RNGs) will be developed, evaluated and implemented for use in high performance computing on thousands of multi-core processors and general purpose graphics processing units. The main contributions are: (a) design and implementation of new parallel test methods that capture the inter-stream correlations exhibited in practice and complement the curr ...

  2. Activated Reactants to Reduce Fuel Cell Overpotentials

    SBC: JSJ Technologies, LLC            Topic: A10AT011

    The current produced in electrochemical galvanic cells is primarily dependent on the rate of the electrode reactions where the cell's anode is less negative, supplying less energy than thermodynamically predicted, and the cell's cathode is less positive, supplying less energy than thermodynamically predicted. Reduction of electrochemical overpotentials in electrochemical systems has been the prim ...

  3. Benign, Inexpensive Simulant for testing of Biological Standoff Sensors

    SBC: Orono Spectral Solutions Inc.            Topic: A10AT017

    The goal of this Phase I proposal is to develop a synthetic, low cost, and benign simulant for biowarfare agents (BWA) to be used in the testing of standoff sensors. Orono Spectral Solutions Inc. (OSS) has performed preliminary work leading to the identification of benign ingredients that, when combined in a predefined mass ratio, mimic UV-Vis and infrared signatures of BG spores. This work was pe ...

  4. High surface-area, mesoporous oxide adsorbent sampling system.

    SBC: Orono Spectral Solutions Inc.            Topic: A10AT018

    The overall goal of this Phase I project is to demonstrate the feasibility of an infrared transparent, micro-fluidic sampling system that will lead to a field-deployable detection system capable of detecting low ppb levels of chemical warfare (CW) agents in water. To accomplish this goal, the proposed detection system will combine high surface area, organically modified mesoporous oxide absorptiv ...

  5. III-nitride 1.5 Micron Photonic Devices on Si Substrates

    SBC: III-N Technology, Inc            Topic: A10AT015

    Research in silicon photonics has received much attention in recent years for its potential to utilize well developed silicon processing technology. A broad range of linear and nonlinear silicon photonic devices such as modulators, splitters, switches and detectors have been demonstrated. However, the most important challenge in silicon photonics thus far is the difficulty of making electrically p ...

  6. Resonant Cavity Enhanced On-Chip Raman Spectrometer Array with Precisely Positioned Metallic Nano-Gaps for Single Molecule Detection

    SBC: Omega Optics, Inc.            Topic: A10AT014

    In this program, Omega Optics and the University of Texas at Austin propose to develop an on-chip surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) spectrometer array for single molecule detection. The sensitivity of the SERS spectrometer comes from the 5-nm gap between gold nanowires, which can achieve 108 enhancement factor (EF) for the Raman scattering signals. Especially, these gold nanowires are preci ...

  7. Leader-Following for Mobile Robots

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: A10AT030

    TRACLabs Inc. has worked with NASA to create indoor/outdoor, vision-based leader-following systems for sparse, extra-terrestrial environments. Brown University's Robotics Group has demonstrated leader-following and gesture recognition in high-traffic, dynamic, indoor environments using active lidar sensing. We propose to combine our technologies in order to create a passive sensing system that w ...

  8. Rugged, Hand-held, and Array-based Traumatic Brain Injury Biomarker Biosensor

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: OSD05T003

    On the battlefield, 30-40% of all injuries have a head injury component. A field medic must quickly assess the extent of brain injury for rapid triage of the injured soldier. Researchers have identified traumatic brain injury (TBI) related biomarkers that appear in blood some time after trauma has occurred. Lynntech proposes to develop a handheld, rugged, reagentless, inexpensive, and versatile (p ...

  9. Fuel Cell Operating on Neat Formic Acid

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A05T005

    Pure, or nearly pure, (neat) formic acid is easily oxidized electrochemically. It also has sufficient energy density to produce a system with over 600 Wh/kg net energy density. We propose to combine Lynntech's light, simple, and rugged monopolar fuel cell technology with high activity catalysts produced using technology developed by Vanderbilt University to produce a high energy density fuel cel ...

  10. High Power IMPATT-Mode AlGaN/GaN HFETs for mm-Wave Applications

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: A05T008

    A new Aluminum gallium nitride (AlGaN) based heterojunction field-effect transistor (HFET) structure is proposed that utilizes avalanche impact ionization for very high frequency operation (>100 GHz). The main goal of this program is to demonstrate the potential of these devices as a replacement for vacuum tubes in mm-wave applications including radars and communications transmitters. In the Pha ...
