  1. STTR Phase II: Novel Analysis Tools for Production of Higher Indican Yielding Plants for Bio-based Indigo

    SBC: STONY CREEK COLORS, INC.            Topic: CT

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase II project will develop a new tool for the analysis of in situ indican precursor in indigo plants, which when combined with genomic analysis and genetic linkage mapping in selectively bred indigo crops, will lead to high indican yielding breeding parental lines and ultimately competitively price natural indigo dye. Additionally, characterization ...

  2. SBIR Phase II: An interactive digital textbook that supports earth science learning

    SBC: Squid Books, LLC            Topic: EA

    This SBIR Phase I project will produce an innovative reading application and administrative portal to support science learning. Although the science textbook is a central curricular resource, this resource is often inaccessible and difficult to read. Science textbooks are syntactically (grammatically) and semantically (word meaning) complex. Specifically, elementary and secondary science texts are ...

  3. SBIR Phase II: Closed-loop control of MEMS deformable mirror for two-photon microscopy

    SBC: Revibro Optics, L.L.C.            Topic: MI

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will enable video-rate three-dimensional (3D) imaging within two-photon microscopes (2PMs) by developing novel deformable membrane mirror (DMM) technology for fast, precise focus control. As a subset of laser scanning microscopes (LSMs), 2PMs achieve very high spatial resolution by using a focused, high-power laser beam to excite fluo ...

  6. SBIR Phase II: Engineered Nanoporous Ceramic Membranes that Enable High-Performance and Low-Cost Flow Batteries

    SBC: Membrion, Inc.            Topic: CT

    This SBIR Phase II project seeks to develop a novel low-cost molecular filter for use in harsh environments. This is accomplished using commodity silica gel, commonly found as a desiccant in food packing, whose pores can be made to be only a few molecules wide. Accurate tuning of the size and shape of the silica gel pores enables certain molecules to pass through while others are blocked from pass ...

  10. Enhancing Administrator Coaching of Classroom Teachers

    SBC: Liveschool Inc.            Topic: 99190018R0005

    Purpose: In previous research and development, the team created LiveSchool, a technology for teachers to report student behavior in their class. In this project, the team will fully develop and test ClassCoach, a dashboard for administrators to track student behavior and to recommend resources teachers can use to address student behavioral needs in their classes. Over the past several years, schoo ...
