The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Particle Sizing and Identification Through Advanced Light Scatter Techniques

    SBC: Ade Corp.            Topic: N/A

    Light scatter has been used to map and size particles on silicon wafers for many years, producing accurate maps of particle position and giving an indication of particle size, but do not reveal any information about particle composition. Today's technology is limited by noise, precluding detection of the smallest particles of interest. Present instruments are not adequate for the next generation ...

  2. NANOMETER-SIZE STEP HEIGHT TEST STRUCTURES

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    MCNC PROPOSES A FEASIBILITY STUDY AND EVALUATION OF THREE PROMISING APPROACHES TO THE FABRICATION OF SURFACE TEST STRUCTURES ON SILICON. SURFACE FEATURES ON THE FIRST STRUCTURE WILL BE PRODUCED BY CONTROLLABLY ETCHING THERMALLYGROWN OXIDES. FEATURES ON THE SECOND WILL BE MADE BY ETCHING PIEZOELECTRIC THIN FILMS. USING THE PIEZOELECTRIC FILM AS PART OF A CAPACITOR, STEP-HEIGHT CAN BE VARIED AND PRO ...

  3. Diagnostic Development for Characterizing Fuel Droplet Temperatures in Spray Flames

    SBC: Aerometrics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Development of efficient spray combustors requires a complete understanding of fundamental phenomena that influence and control the overall spray combustion process. Toward this end, detailed experimental characterization of spray flames is essential. This includes measurement of various fuel droplet parameters such as droplet size, velocity, number density, temperature, composition, and droplet ...

  7. Prediction of Equivalent System Temperature: A Computer Methodology

    SBC: Applied Data Trends, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    There is a global trend towards utilization of satellite communications for information services. Equivalent system temperature, Ts, is a significant parameter in quantifying the antenna system/link performance, because it represents the noise power spectral density in antenna system figures-of-merit, such as receiver gain/system temperature (G/T), and end-to-end Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR). Unf ...

  8. Scanning Head Storage Phosphor Plate Scanner

    SBC: APREND TECHNOLOGY            Topic: N/A

    The specific problem addressed by the proposed research is the development of a scanner for storage phosphor plates with significantly better positional and intensity accuracy than the current state of the art. The new scanner will be based on the use of a "scanning head" scanning approach which is more simple, accurate, and stable than the approaches previously used. This results in stable and ...

  9. Real-Time Image Vector Processor: RTIVP

    SBC: Aspex Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Proposed Innovation is real-time hardware for image processing, image understanding and machine vision that will achieve significant performance increases over current systems by implementing a set of operations required to support a specific set of algorithms. These algorithms are intended to process and analyze multiple, parallel partial derivative images or "Jet bundles" which provide a fr ...
