  1. Production Methods and Software for NIST Calibration Phantoms

    SBC: SIGMA K CORP            Topic: 9050868TT

    Currently, there are over 10,000 MRI scanners used in the US alone. US citizens today are mobile and many times medical treatments may require MRI scans from several different facilities. Images from MRI scanners can also drift over time. There is a tremendous need for all medical imaging scanners to be on the same level. Sigma-K will develop the commercialization of the ISMRM/NIST MRI Calibration ...

  2. Anion Exchange Resins for Chirality-based Separation of Single-wall Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: Sepax Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 9060663R

    Single chirality of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) is critical for their superb mechanical, thermal, optical and electronic properties. All known methods for producing nanotubes give mixtures of tubes with different chiralities. Physical separation of SWCNT by chirality is thus an enabling step for many potential applications and fundamental studies. The existing anion exchange resins are ...

  3. Wave Energy Harvesting System

    SBC: Peregrine Power LLC            Topic: 812SG

    The applicant will develop a wave energy harvesting system for NOAA buoys. It will ve entirely self-contained (no protruding elements), modular, scalable, and easily deployed. The system employs a unique, inertial mechanism that responds to acceleration forces created by waves. This mechanism will be combined with (1) a proprietary generator that is sensitive to very low levels of torque and ha ...

  4. User-Friendly 3D Environmental Profiler AUV

    SBC: NEKTON RESEARCH LLC            Topic: 813

    We propose Ranger ES, a low cost, autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) for three-dimensional profiling and water samplings of chemical, physical, and biological parameters of oceanic and fresh waters. The AUV will be programmable by point and click to analyze a volume of water continuously for the selected parameters. After returning for pickup after a day¿s run, it will download its data into a ...

  5. A Prototype Net Cleaning System for Open-Ocean Aquaculture Cages

    SBC: Onomea Scientific, LLC            Topic: 8110

    Open-Ocean Aquaculture businesses are proving commercially successful. There are several technical refinements the industry must undergo in order to maximize productivity and future expansion. We address a problem common to all off-shore open-ocean aquaculture cage systems, marine biofouling of the net mesh used for the enclosure. Significant amounts of biofoulding leads to increased pollutant ...

  6. Construction of a Force Probe for Characterization of Microscale Features

    SBC: INSITUTEC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The Phase 2 objective is to provide NIST with a modular gauge head unit equipped with InsituTec's standing wave probe technology. The complete gauge head unit will be retrofitted to the NIST M48 which is one of the most precise measuring machines in the world. This unit will enable NIST to achieve the agency's program goal in dimensional metrology which is to provide microscale measurement capacit ...
