  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 ...

  3. A NEW SCIENTIFIC INSTRUMENT FOR BIOGENETIC TOXICITY TESTING

    SBC: North Star Research Inc            Topic: N/A

    BASED ON OUR RESEARCH, WE FEEL THAT THE STAINING PROPERTIES OF SITS (4-ACETOAMIDO-4'-ISOTHIOCYANOSTILBENE 2,2' DISULPHONIC ACID), A REAGENT WHICH ENABLES IN SITU VISUALIZATION AND DISCRIMINATION AMONG LIVING, DYING AND DEAD CELLS, MAKE IT A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR USE IN AN APPROPRIATELY DESIGNED INSTRUMENT. WE PROPOSE AN AUTOMATED VIDEO MICROSCOPE WITH MEMORY AND POSSIBLE REMOTE VIEWING CAPABILITY. IT ...

  4. A Novel High Efficiency Thermal-Electrochemical Device for Hybrid PV/T Systems

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: AF10BT22

    ABSTRACT: Energy issues have been at the center of the national security debate and as the largest single consumer of energy in the United States, the DOD recognizes the need to reduce its reliance on fossil fuel. For a number of years, the department has been making steady progress at decreasing its fossil fuel footprint which has seen solar energy and the use of photovoltaic cells emerge as a ...

  5. ADVANCED FUEL CELLS

    SBC: Treadwell Corp            Topic: N/A

    THE MOST CRITICAL ASPECT OF THE RADIO FREQUENCY POWER SUPPLY FOR THE NEUTRAL PARTICLE BEAM INTEGRATED EXPERIMENT IS ITS POWER TO WEIGHT RATIO. IN ADDITION, THE SPACE-QUALIFIED 45V POWER SUPPLY MUST BE ABLE TO SUPPLY 27,000 AMP PULSES DOWN TO 350 MICROSECONDS WITH ONLY A 2 - 3% VOLTAGE DROP. PROTON EXCHANGE MEMBRANE FUEL CELLS HAVE POTENTIALLY THE HIGHEST POWER TO WEIGHT RATIO OF ANY TYPE OF FUEL C ...

  8. ARMAMENT RESEARCH- GUN GAS CONTROL TECHNOLOGY

    SBC: Veritay Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    RAPID-FIRE, HIGH VELOCITY GUN SYSTEMS ARE SUBJECT TO PROBLEMS SUCH AS EXCESSIVE MUZZLE PRESSURE, BLAST, AND SECONDARY FLASH. THESE PROBLEMS OCCUR BECAUSE NEARLY SEVENTY PERCENT OF THE PROPELLANT CHEMICAL ENERGY, REMAINS IN THE GAS IN THE FORM OF THERMAL AND KINETIC ENERGY. THE AFOREMENTIONED PROBLEMS ARE A DIRECT RESULT OF THIS ABUNDANCE OF HOT, HIGH-PRESSURE GAS THAT IS RAPIDLY VENTED FROM THE BA ...

  9. BIOMASSCOMP

    SBC: MARTINGALE RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    NATURAL NEURAL NETWORKS ARE STILL OUR BEST GUIDE TO THE DESIGN PRINCIPLES OF ADAPTIVE, INTELLIGENT COMPUTING ARCHITECTURES. DETAILED KNOWLEDGE OF THE MOLECULAR BIOPHYSICAL STRUCTURES THAT MAKE BRAINS WORK WOULD BE NICE TO HAVE, BUT THAT IS NOT THE ONLY WAY TO EXTRACT NATURE'S SECRETS. THIS PROPOSAL USES THE CONCEPT OF RESONANCE AS THE MEANS TO TUNE THE PARAMETERS OF AN ARTIFICIAL NEURAL SYSTEM (AN ...

  10. CHEMICALLY MODIFIED CARBONS FOR LITHIUM BATTERIES

    SBC: ELECTROSYNTHESIS CO., INC.            Topic: N/A

    CARBON ELECTRODES ARE AN INTEGRAL COMPONENT OF HIGH ENERGY DENSITY LI/SOCL(2) AND LI/SO(2)CL(2) PRIMARY BATTERY SYSTEMS. RATE CAPABILITY AND POLARIZATION BEHAVIOR OF THE ELECTRODE IS EXPECTED TO BE ENHANCED BY SPECIFIC PRETREATMENTS OF THE CARBON. FACTORS KNOWN TO INFLUENCE THE CARBON'S PERFORMANCE ARE SURFACE AREA, POROSITY AND PORE SIZE DISTRIBUTION, THERMAL AND ELECTRICAL CONDUCTIVITY, AND WETT ...
