  1. Type II Superlattices for LWIR Detectors and Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: MP Technologies, LLC            Topic: A06122

    Long wavelength infrared (LWIR) detectors are highly needed for night vision and threat warning applications. The InAs/GaSb Type II heterostructure system offers unique design flexibility for new innovative detectors. Type strained layer superlattice (SLS) detectors have been demonstrated with cutoff wavelengths ranging from 3 to 32 microns. This technology has shown performance comparable to HgCd ...

  2. High Sensitivity Rugged Array Detectors for Field Deployed Instruments: Low-Light Level Camera for Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) and Ram

    SBC: B & W Tek Inc.            Topic: A06065

    Low-light-level photodetector arrays are proposed for detecting the weak optical emission spectra from the trace atoms in the laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS). The proposed semiconductor image intensifier and low-light-level camera utilize the miniaturized and monolithically integrated version of a proven solid-state detector technology, and is expected to be able to detect femto-watts ...

  3. Simulation Tools for Strain Engineering, Manufacturing and Design of Novel Optical and Electronic Superlattice Materials and Surfaces

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A06075

    The overall objective of this Phase I proposal is to create a model based on molecular dynamics (MD) that can predict the specific Quantum Dot Superlattice (QDSL) heteroepitaxial structures that will grow, given various factors such as growth temperature, flux rate, and spacer thickness. AlGaN/GaN heterostructures have attracted a great deal of theoretical and experimental interest because of thei ...

  4. Rapid Detection of Acetylcholinesterase-Inhibiting Pesticides in Water Using a Handheld Assay and Reader

    SBC: ANP TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A06159

    We propose that a comparative colorimetric assay be developed that will use a ticket of the same dimensions as the current ANP immunoassay tickets. This will allow the AChE test to be conducted using a similar workflow as the lateral flow immunoassay-based HHAs and be similarly read on the ANP reader to yield an unambiguous result independent of user judgment.

  5. Colorimetric Sensors for Chemical and Biological Warfare Agents

    SBC: NANOSPHERE, INC.            Topic: A06T024

    1. Abstract. The Mirkin group at Nortwestern University has developed methods for exquisitely sensitive analyte detection that rely upon forming hybridized arrays of nucleic acid-derivatized gold nanoparticles. These methods lend themselves immediately to colorimetric detection and dipstick-style applications. The hybridized nanoparticles are (quite literally) ‘blue,’ the separated nanopar ...

  6. Colorimetric Sensors for Chemical and Biological Warfare Agents

    SBC: ANDALYZE, INC.            Topic: A06T024

    We aim to construct litmus paper-like colorimetric sensors for detection and quantification of chemical and biological agents in water by performing combinatorial selection of DNA aptamers for cyanobacteria toxins such as microcystins and saxitoxins. Aptamers are single stranded DNA that can bind target molecules with high affinity and specificity. Such DNA aptamers are biocompatible, biodegradabl ...

  7. Rapid Detection Nano-Sensors for Biological Warfare Agents in Buildings and HVAC Systems

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A06T026

    Currently there is no real-time technology to detect airborne biological warfare agents (BWAs). Conventional technologies require 30 minutes to 1 hour. We propose to design, fabricate and test user-friendly, low-logistical-load biosensors capable of the real-time (~ 30 s. or less) detection and identification of airborne BWAs with high sensitivity and specificity for all classes of bioagents – ...

  8. Pathogen Concentration from Complex Water Supplies

    SBC: ANP TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A06T022

    ANP Technologies proposes to develop a sample concentration system that uses commercial hollow fiber filtration technology with permanent anti-fouling coatings to concentrate biological contaminants in water sources or supplies to a level high enough to be readily detected. The filter technology will allow simple and quick release of the contaminants into a much smaller volume without the use of ...

  9. Confinement of Threading Dislocations at the CdTe/Si Interface for Improved HgCdTe IR Sensors

    SBC: WIZDOM SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: A06T021

    Stringent requirements on the performance of third generation HgCdTe infrared detectors demand the availability of affordable high quality substrates with very large areas. The large areas are needed both for the fabrication of single very large focal plane arrays (FPAs) (2048x2048) and to increase the yield of smaller size FBAs per wafer. The quality of commercial CdTe/Si technology, the best lar ...

  10. Enhanced Ethanol Diesel Blend for Emission Reduction

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 05NCERB2

    New engine diesel pollution is addressed in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Clean Diesel Truck and Buses, low sulfur diesel, and nonroad diesel rules.  Unfortunately, slow fleet turnover will extend full implementation.  EPA is interested in both retrofit technologies that reduce emissions (particulate matter, volatile organic pollutants, NOx) from diesel sourc ...
