  1. Monolithic Micro-Laser With KTP Ridge Waveguides for Injection Seeding High Power Lasers

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: E102

    This NASA Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will develop a technique to greatly improve the direct coupling of a diode laser to an optical waveguide with embedded Bragg grating using no intermediate lenses. The key innovation proposed for this SBIR effort is a method for generating adiabatic tapers at the input end of optical waveguides in potassium titanyl phosphate (KTP). This ...

  2. Ocean Surface Current Vectors from MODIS Terra/Aqua Sea Surface Temperature Image Pairs

    SBC: Geospatial Insights, Inc.            Topic: E401

    Satellites that record imagery of the same sea surface area, at times separated by a few hours, can be used to estimate ocean surface velocity fields based on the apparent motion of patterns observed in a pair of images. Human interactive, statistical, model inversion, and feature correspondence methods have all been applied to this problem in the past. Previous methods used Advanced Very High R ...

  3. Real Time, Non-intrusive Detection of Liquid Nitrogen in Liquid Oxygen (LOX) at High Pressure and High Flow

    SBC: Mississippi Ethanol, LLC            Topic: T901

    SSC needs the sensors that are capable and can be operated in liquid oxygen (LOX) and or liquid hydrogen (LH2) cryogenic environment to improve SSC cryogenic testing. In particular, the Stennis Space Center (SSC) would like to develop a sensor to monitor the quality of LOX in the delivery line during the testing of a rocket engine. Spontaneous Raman scattering (SRS) with its relative simplicity ...

  4. Precise Automatic Image Coregistration Tools to Enable Pixel-Level Change Detection

    SBC: Positive Systems, Inc.            Topic: E401

    Automated detection of land cover changes between multitemporal images has long been a goal of the remote sensing discipline. Most research in this area has focused on methods for detecting and categorizing changes captured by two or more images [Jensen, 1991, Singh, 1989; Coppin and Bauer, 1996], but precise coregistration of images is required and remains a key challenge [Dai and Khorram, 1998, ...

  5. Microfluidic Analytical Separator for Proteomics

    SBC: TECHSHOT, INC.            Topic: B203

    SHOT proposes an innovative microfluidic device designed to effect a 2-dimensional resolution of a mixture of proteins based on isoelectric point (pI) and molecular weight. A novel approach is proposed to achieve 2-D-gel equivalence. The first dimension is to be immobilized isoelectric focusing, and the second dimension will utilize an array of 100+ size-exclusion chromatography columns in micro ...
