  1. Improved Microcalorimeter Detectors for X-Ray Chemical Shift Mapping

    SBC: STAR CRYOELECTRONICS LLC            Topic: N/A

    X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy is a widely used and extremely sensitive analytical technique for qualitative as well as quantitative chemical analysis. Superconducting Transition Edge Sensor (TES) microcalorimeter detectors have now been developed that achieve an energy resolution of 2 eV (full width at half maximum) for 1.5 keV X-rays, which is sufficient to enable the measurement of the small s ...

  2. Unipolar nBn HgCdTe on Silicon for High Performance, Low Cost NIR/SWIR Imagers

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: SOCOM12002

    We propose the development of a near infrared/shortwave infrared (NIR/SWIR) sensor based on mercury cadmium telluride (HgCdTe) in an n-type/barrier/n-type (nBn) architecture, designed for room-temperature operation in the 0.7 to 2.8µm NIR/SWIR spectral range. The sensor will compete as a low cost/high performance alternative to near infrared indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs)-based cameras by prov ...

  3. Microfabrication and Micromaching- correct DUN# 142425888

    SBC: Atometric, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Biotechnology, aerospace, automotive and communications industries need small ultra-precise, three dimensional parts for component miniaturization. Present metal cutting technology is rapidly reaching its limits. A new technology is required to accelerate this trend. Atometric will pursue innovations in ultra-precision multi-axis machine tools. The machining capacity will be within a cube of 50 mm ...

  4. Advanced Microcalorimeter Instrumentation for X-Ray Microanalysis

    SBC: STAR CRYOELECTRONICS LLC            Topic: N/A

    An innovative superconducting transition edge sensor (TES) microcalorimeter array with superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID) readouts is described for high energy and high spatial resolution X-ray energy dispersive spectroscopy and microanalysis. The proposed microcalorimeter instrument offers an energy resolution that is comparable to and potentially even better than wavelength disp ...
