  1. 3D Tip Characterization and Surface Reconstruction

    SBC: Nanometrology International, Inc.            Topic: 9070168TT

    Nanometrology International, Inc. (NMI) proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of 3-dimensional (3D) characterization of nanoscale objects using scanning probe microscopy (SPM) with a measurement uncertainty of less than 0.7 nm. To accomplish this task, we propose a novel method of 3D tip characterization and use of an innovative surface reconstruction algorithm recently introduced by NIST and th ...

  4. Self-Powered Biosensor for Water Toxicity Monitoring

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A10AT025

    Contamination of water supplies with toxic inorganic chemicals and toxic inorganic materials (TIC/TIMs) is a major concern for the U.S. military due to their worldwide prevalence and accessibility. Traditional, analyte-specific approaches are unfeasible to detect the approximately 70,000 potential TIC/TIM contaminants. Biologically-based sensor systems have the potential to provide general infor ...

  5. Conducting Stress-Strain Analysis by Remote Sensing

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: A11aT003

    Cracks and loose fasteners are continuing structural problems on H-60 helicopters resulting in unexpected downtime to repair/replace structures. This reduces availability to the warfighter, increases risk, and is expensive and time consuming. The proposed embedded system would provide early detection and assessment of loose fasteners and strain allowing planned repairs and mitigating problems. ...

  6. Efficient Methanol Electrolyzer for Hydrogen Generation

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A11aT012

    While methanol has many properties that make it a potentially excellent fuel for portable fuel cells, the large over potential required for oxidization and its tendency to transport through most electrolytes limits the actual energy densities that can be achieved to a small fraction of its potential. A potential low temperature approach to reducing system complexity and eliminating the problems o ...

  7. Inorganic Oxide Supported Biomimetic Membranes with Ion Channels for DMFC Application

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A11aT013

    Methanol crossover of commercial Nafion membranes is a major issue that results in lowering of the efficiency of direct methanol fuel cells (DMFCs). The reason for high crossover in Nafion membrane is the bulk water transport associated with proton transfer. It is thus advantageous to have separate transport of protons and water. Nature has answered this problem in biological membranes which conta ...

  8. High-capacity and Cost-effective Manufacture of Chloroperoxidase

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: A11aT014

    The chloroperoxidase enzyme from the filamentous fungus Caldariomyces fumago has applications in industrial chemical synthesis and the detection and inactivation of chemical warfare agents. Chloroperoxidase is capable of regio- and enantioselective oxygenations and halogenations of organic substrates. When performed chemically, these reactions typically require aggressive reagents and reaction c ...

  9. Integrated THz Plasmonic Chemical and Biological Sensors

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: A11aT022

    Detection of chemical and biological threats is becoming increasingly important in today"s world of asymmetric enemies. The threat of attack using chemical and biological warfare (CBW) agents has increased significantly both abroad and at home due to the availability of information and large quantities of industrial chemicals. This growing threat requires new techniques and technologies for high s ...

  10. Improved Combustion Efficiency and Reduction of Emissions of Compression Ignition Engines Using On-Board Non Thermal Plasma Generated Hydrogen/Syngas

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A11aT023

    Addition of hydrogen/syngas to a compression engine has shown to improve engine efficiency and emissions. While this has been studied in detail with diesel engines, little has been done to determine its effects on an engine operating on JP-8. There are also several inconsistencies in published reports regarding the effects of H2 injection that need to be addressed. With advancements in fuel reform ...
