  1. Nanoadsorbent and Microwave Technology to Capture and Recover Organic Vapors

    SBC: ADS Technoogies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and hazardous air polutants (HAPS are a serioud environmental issue. These pollutants are requlated to protect human health and encourage the development of better control technologies. Current technologies to control thses emissions, until better materials are developed, include destructive and/or recovery-based technologies. Implementation of ads ...

  3. Micro-discharge Based Multi-Metal Emissions Monitoring System

    SBC: Cavition, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Caviton has developed a novel technique for the continuous monitoring of trace metals emissions. This technique is based on a microdischarge light, which is collected by a spectrometer and analyzed. All metals tested to date can b detected and the focus of this Phase II project is to develop a sampling system, carry out laboratory tests, then move to field tests of sampling and analysis. Finall ...

  4. Computer-Adaptive Assessment of Temperament to Support Personnel Selection and Classification Decisions

    SBC: DRASGOW CONSULTING GROUP LLC            Topic: A04029

    We intend to use our recently developed IRT model for scoring multidimensional pairwise preference items as the basis for a computerized adaptive test (CAT) that is designed to be fake resistant. The items will consist primarily of pairs of personality statements, on different dimensions, which are similar in social desiriability. A respondent's task will be to choose the statement in each pair ...

  5. High Performance Longwave Infrared (LWIR) HgCdTe on Silicon

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A04119

    It is critical in the field on infrared imaging to reduce array costs and simultaneously improve their performance. We propose to achieve both. The use of long wavelength infrared HgCdTe grown on Si substrates will reduce the array costs, increase its mechanical strength and permit the fabrication of larger area arrays than present-day technology based on bulk CdZnTe substrates. Performance enhanc ...

  6. Advanced High Operating Temperature Mid-Wave Infrared Sensors

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A05052

    High sensitivity HgCdTe infrared arrays operating at 77K can now be tailored in a wide range of wavelengths. However, the cooling requirements make them bulky and unsuitable for many DOD applications. We propose two novel approaches to increase their operating temperature. In the first approach, we will demonstrate p-d-n equilibrium HgCdTe detectors. Because of the lack of symmetry between the va ...

  7. High Performance Longwave Infrared (LWIR) HgCdTe on Silicon

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A04119

    The use of Si-based composite substrates for HgCdTe infrared focal plane arrays holds the promise of improved resolution, greater robustness and lower cost as compared to arrays that employ the present-day standard CdZnTe substrates. The principal challenge associated with the use of Si-based substrates is the presence of dislocations, created by the large lattice mismatch, that thread into the Hg ...

  8. Development of Low Stress Ohmic Contacts to HgCdTe

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A05099

    The problem to be solved in the proposed work is that the deposition of the usual In and Au metal contacts on HgCdTe-based IR detectors creates additional stress in the HgCdTe immediately below the contacts, This stress has been observed to getter threading dislocations, which, in turn, creates misfit dislocation segments just below the detector surface and parallel to the surface, in the active a ...

  9. Thermoelectric Cooling of Photodetector Arrays with HgCdTe-based Superlattices

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A05T013

    The most challenging degrading effect on current state-of-the-art focal plane arrays is caused by the random spatial and temporal photoresponse nonuniformity of the pixels. We propose a major improvement by controlling the temperature of individual pixels with individual thermoelectric coolers. We will use HgxCd1-xTe/HgyCd1-yTe superlattices (SLs) as the thermoelectric material. Two major benefits ...

  10. High Performance, Low Temperature Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Generators Utilizing a Novel Logistic Fuel Internal Reforming Stack Design

    SBC: Functional Coating Technology, LLC            Topic: A05075

    The proposed project is based on two recent exciting innovations: the direct operation of low-temperature solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) by direct internal reforming of liquid hydrocarbon fuels, and a novel mechanically-robust stack design that is ideally suited for small-scale (»1kW) generators. The aims of the Phase I project are to demonstrate the combination of these innovations by fabricat ...
