  1. Novel THz-frequency spectrometers by integrating widely-tunable monochromatic THz sources and detectors, or arrays of emitters and detectors, with pho

    SBC: ArkLight            Topic: CBD04104

    This SBIR Phase I project focuses on the comprehensive analyses and designs of the three novel prototype THz-frequency spectrometers. Such a goal is built upon the recent success of the implementations of widely-tunable monochromatic THz sources and the accomplishments of chemical sensing, characterization of bio tissues, studies of photonic bandgap crystals, and quantum detectors. During the Phas ...

  2. Portable System for Sample Preparation and Differentiation of Pathogens at Strain Level

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: CBD04107

    During the anthrax attacks in 2001, investigators had difficulty in differentiating the strains apart because B. anthracis has a low level of genetic variability. This event demonstrated the need for rapid and precise molecular subtyping technologies. Lynntech proposes to develop an ultra-sensitive quantum dots-based molecular beacon fluorogenic reporter system to identify the presence of specif ...

  3. Monitoring Groundwater Contaminants

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Chlorinated hydrocarbons represent the most prevalent contaminants in the subsurface, threatening the quality of groundwater at aquifers. Existing technologies for monitoring these contaminants require expensive, labor-intensive methods of sample collection and analysis. The goal of this Phase I research project is to develop a low-cost, compact, reliable, automated, unattended, and long-term mo ...

  4. A novel THz spectrophotometer by integrating a widely-tunable monochromatic THz source with a detector based on up-conversion process

    SBC: ArkLight            Topic: CBD04306

    This SBIR Phase I project focuses on the implementation of a novel THz spectrophotometer. Such a goal is built upon the recent success of the implementations of widely-tunable monochromatic THz sources and the characterizations of Bragg reflectors and bio tissues. During the Phase-I period, we propose to reduce the linewidths of a Nd:YAG laser and OPO down to 0.003 wave numbers and 0.075 wave numb ...

  5. Noncontact, Optical Molecular Method for Detection and Identification of Cryptosporidium Parvum Oocysts in Drinking Water

    SBC: CHEMIMAGE CORPORATION            Topic: C3NCERB1

    Contamination of drinking water with pathogenic microorganisms such as Cryptosporidium has become an increasing concern in recent years. Cryptosporidium oocysts particularly are problematic, because infections caused by this organism can be life threatening in immunocompromised patients. Current methods for monitoring and analyzing water often are laborious and require expertise. In addi ...

  8. Fluorescent Nanoparticle-Aptmer-Magnetic Bead Sensor for Bioterrorism Detection in Water

    SBC: Operational Techologies Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Some bioterrorism agents cause disease at very low infective doses and their presence can be masked by the environment. Therefore, ultrasensitive detection is required for homeland defense applications. In this Phase I research project, Operational Technologies Corporation (OpTech) proposes to couple DNA aptamers made by the Systematic Evolution of Ligands by Exponential Enrichment (SELEX) proce ...

  10. Magnetic Concentrator & Cartridge System to Enhance Food Safety

    SBC: Operational Techologies Corporation            Topic: CBD04108

    Foodborne pathogen detection has always been faced with volume and matrix problems, i.e., low numbers of viral or bacterial pathogens in a large volume of solid or liquid foods that are still potentially infectious. Despite sensitive techniques such as PCR and immunomagnetic-electrochemiluminescence (IM-ECL), there still exists a need to concentrate and semi-purify pathogens from large (liter) vo ...
