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 ...SBIR Phase I 2011 Department of CommerceNational Institute of Standards and Technology
SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC. Topic: CBD11109
Currently, the accepted standard experimental model for measuring protective efficacy against botulism is the Mouse Lethality Neutralization (MLN) assay. Botulism poisoning is a life threatening condition that is not only a public health concern, but could also be a potential biological weapon. With seven serotypes of botulinum neurotoxins, there is need for an alternative to the MLN assay due t ...SBIR Phase I 2011 Department of DefenseOffice for Chemical and Biological Defense
SBC: Phoebus Optoelectronics LLC Topic: CBD11102
We propose a metamaterial-enhanced microbolometer with strong absorption over a narrow band that is dynamically tunable over the 8-10 micron band. A single-layer photonic metamaterial consisting of a thin metal film perforated with a 2-D array of dielectric apertures will be deposited on an amorphous-Silicon layer acting as an absorber and bolometer. The metamaterial, in conjunction with planar di ...SBIR Phase I 2011 Department of DefenseOffice for Chemical and Biological Defense
