  2. DETECTION OF ACID RAIN POLLUTANTS USING INFRARED LASERS PRODUCED BY STIMULATED ELECTRON RAMAN SCATTERING

    SBC: Comstock Inc            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT WILL ESTABLISH THE POTENTIAL FOR RAPID RESPONSE, HIGH RESOLUTION DETECTION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF INFRARED (IR) ACTIVE POLLUTANT MOLECULES, SUCH AS S02, N0, AND N02. MINIATURE OPTICAL HEAT PIPES WILL BE CONSTRUCTED AND OPTIMIZED FOR THE GENERATION OF TUNABLE IR LASER LIGHT BY MEANS OF STIMULATED ELECTRON RAMAN SCATTERING (SERS). THE HEAT PIPES WILL USE ALKALI METAL VAPORS AT PRESSURE ...

  3. INCREASED SPEED IN DNA SEQUENCING BY UTILIZING LARIS TO LOCALIZE MULTIPLE STABLE ISOTOPE LABELED FRAGMENTS

    SBC: ATOM SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    MAPPING AND SEQUENSING THE DNA IN THE HUMAN GENOME IS OF CRUCIAL IMPORTANCE TO FUTURE MEDICAL ADVANCES AND ECONOMIC COMPETITIVENESS. UTILIZATION OF DNA PROBES LABELED WITH DOZENS OF STABLE ISOTOPES INSTEAD OF A SINGLE RADIOISOTOPE COULD INCREASE THE RATE OF SEQUENCE DETERMINATION 100-FOLD OR MORE COMPARED TO CURRENT METHODS. THIS PROJECT INVOLVES A NEW APPROACH, LASER ATOMIZATION RESONANCE IONIZAT ...

  5. AN IN-VESSEL AND EX-VESSEL SMALL VOLUME REMOTE MAINTENANCE SYSTEM FOR THE COMPACT IGNITION TOKAMAK

    SBC: Telerobotics International,            Topic: N/A

    REMOTE MAINTENANCE OF THE COMPACT IGNITION TOKAMAK (CIT) POSES FORMIDABLE CHALLENGES BECAUSE OF ITS INTERNAL DIMENSIONAL CONSTRAINTS, DIVERSITY OF MAINTENANCE OPERATIONS, AND GEOMETRICALLY INTRICATE ARRANGEMENT OF EXTERNAL SERVICE EQUIPMENT. THESE CHALLENGES MUST BE ADDRESSED TO SUPPORT FUTURE "HOT" OPERATION OF THE PRINCETON PLASMA PHYSICS LABORATORY (PPPL) CIT. PHASE I INTRODUCES A SINGLE SOLUTI ...

  7. A TECHNIQUE FOR REAL-TIME MEASUREMENT OF FLOW TOPOLOGY IN TWO-PHASE SYSTEMS

    SBC: Potomac Research Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A THREE-DIMENSIONAL QUANTITATIVE DIELECTRIC IMAGING TECHNIQUE IS PROPOSED FOR MEASUREMENT OF VOID FRACTION, INTERFACIAL AREA, AND FLOW TOPOLOGY OF LIQUID TWO-PHASE FLOWS. WITH MICROWAVES AS PROBING RADIATION, IT MEASURES THE SCATTERING FIELDS USING AN ARRAY AND, THROUGH AN INVERSE SCATTERING PROCESS, RECONSTRUCTS THE DIELECTRIC PERMITTIVITY, BOTH REAL AND IMAGINARY PARTS, OF EVERY PIXEL OF THE FLO ...
