  1. Bragg Grating Enhanced Narrowband Single Photon SPDC Source

    SBC: Gener8, Inc.            Topic: 9010177TT

    Spontaneous Parametric Down conversion (SPDC) is currently an active research area in quantum communications (QC) to develop entangled single photon sources. However, the bandwidth of current SPDC sources is too broad for many applications. NIST researchers have modeled a solution to this problem that reduces the bandwidth by >50. We proposed to fabricate a prototype of the NIST device by developi ...

  2. Digital Micromirror Device Detection Scheme for Transmission Scanning Electron Microscopy

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Accurate quantitative characterization of materials is crucial for a wide range of industrial and research applications. New transmission scanning electron microscopy (t-SEM) methods have the potential for high-resolution imaging similar to transmission electron microscopy (TEM) with a less expensive, faster, and more widely available SEM system. To exploit the full potential of these imaging tech ...

  3. : Advanced Tactile Sensing for Dexterous Robot Hands in Industrial Automation and Assembly

    SBC: Syntouch L.L.C.            Topic: 9020173R

    Robotic actuators exceed human speed, accuracy, and strength, but human hands are regarded as the ultimate in dexterity. SynTouch proposes this is due absent human-like tactile sensing and intelligent reflexive behaviors in robots. SynTouch created a multimodal compliant tactile sensor that mimics the sensory ability of the human fingertip (force, vibration and temperature) and algorithms that fil ...

  10. Nanoparticle Characterization in Fluid by Resonant Mass Measurement

    SBC: Affinity Biosensors, LLC            Topic: N/A

    This project will extend the microchannel resonator to the level of a few attograms, which will allow measurement of individual particles as small as 10 nanometers with unprecedented resolution. The Phase I effort will prove the feasibility of this approach by miniaturizing the MEMS sensors, thereby improving their intrinsic mass sensitivity up to 100-fold; and by simultaneously measuring the sens ...
