  1. Low-Noise Detector Arrays for Raman Spectroscopy

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to demonstrate near infrared (NIR) InGaAs sensor arrays with 55% lower noise than arrays presently available to improve the sensitivity of current spectroscopy systems. The low noise performance will be enabled by the use of low-noise source follower per detector ROICs, which are also used in astronomy with HgCdTe for low noise measurements. With design improvements to current available ...

  2. Holographic Light-Emitting Diode-Based Solar Simulator

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    NIST is seeking a large area solar simulator to overcome the shortcomings of current solar simulators. To meet this need, Physical Optics Corp. (POC) proposed to develop a new Holographic Light-Emitting-Diode-Based Solar Simulator (HOLIOS) based on holographic gratings, holographic diffuser, high-power light emitting diodes with electronic drivers, collimating and projection optics, and photodetec ...

  3. Imaging Variable Kinetic Energy Electron Analyzer

    SBC: R. Browning Consultants            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this proposal is to create a prototype imaging variable kinetic energy electron analyzer in the range 0.1 to 8 keV for use with an X-ray excitation source. The imaging analyzer is to have a target imaging spatial resolution of 100 nm. The X-ray excitation source will be a synchrotron light source. The instrument can be described as an X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) microsc ...

  4. Development of a High Sensitivity Laser-induced Incandescence Instrument for Characterizing Soot and Carbonaceous Particles

    SBC: Artium Technologies Inc            Topic: N/A

    A high sensitivity laser-induced incandescence system is proposed for the detailed characterization of environmental soot. The Phase 1 effort has clearly demonstrated the feasibility of (1) reducing the lower detection limit of soot volume fraction and increasing the overall measurement range by at least 2 orders of magnitude from what is currently achievable, and (2) providing PM particle size me ...

  6. BASED ON HEAT RELEASE MONITORING: A DEMONSTRATION PROGRAM

    SBC: Geoscience Ltd            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED PROGRAM CONSISTS OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF A TECHNIQUE AND A SYSTEM TO MEASURE THE RADIOACTIVE DECAY OF OF RADWASTE CONTAINED IN STORAGE CANISTERS, CASKS AND VAULTS. THE SYSTEM BEING CONSIDERED DEALS WITH THE DIRECT MEASUREMENT OF THE AFTERHEAT BEING GENERATED IN THE RADWASTEVOLUMES. THE SYSTEM TO BE USED TO ACCOMPLISH SUCH MEASURE MENTS CONSISTS OF A HEAT FLUX SENSOR ENVELOPE THAT SURROU ...

  7. EXTENDED FATIGUE LIFE EVALUATION METHODS FOR AGED LWR COMPONENTS

    SBC: O'donnell Consulting Engineers            Topic: N/A

    STRESSES DUE TO PRESSURE AND REPEATED THERMAL CYCLING CAUSE PROGRESSIVE MATERIAL DAMAGE DURING THE OPERATION OF LWR COMPONENTS AND PIPING SYSTEMS. THE PRESENT PRO POSED RESEARCH WOULD IMPROVE THE ACCURACY OF EXISTING S- N FATIGUE EVALUATION METHODS BY COMBINING THEM WITH THE ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY OF CRACK PROPAGATION AND FRACTURE MECH ANICS. ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS WILL BE INCLUDED IN THE CRACK PROPAG ...

  8. FUNCTIONAL CONDITION OF SOLENOID-OPERATED VALVES USED IN NUCLEAR POWER PLANT SAFETY APPLICATIONS

    SBC: Pentek Inc.            Topic: N/A

    PENTEK WILL DEVELOP AND TEST A TECHNIQUE TO DETERMINE THE FUNCTIONALITY OF SOLENOID-OPERATED VALVES IN A NUCLEAR POWERPLANT BASED ON THE MEASUREMTNT AND ANALYSIS OF IN-RUSH CURRENT. THE TECHNIQUE WILL BE DEVELOPED SO THAT ALL MEASUREMENTS CAN BE MADE FROM OUTSIDE THE REACTOR BUILDING WITHOUT DISTRUBING ANY ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS. THE ANALYSIS METHODS WILL BE DEVELOPED FOR ON-LINE USE WITH A PERSON ...

  9. ASSESSMENT OF RARE EVENT FREQUENCIES OFTEN REQUIRES SIGNIFI-CANT RELIANCE ON EXPERT JUDGEMENT DUE TO THE SCARCITY OF EMPIRICAL DATA.

    SBC: Pickard, Lowe & Garrick Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ASSESSMENT OF RARE EVENT FREQUENCIES OFTEN REQUIRES SIGNIFI-CANT RELIANCE ON EXPERT JUDGEMENT DUE TO THE SCARCITY OF EMPIRICAL DATA. IN THIS WORK, FORMAL MODELS FOR USING THE OPINIONS OF SINGLE AND MULTIPLE EXPERTS WILL BE EVALUATED INLIGNT OF EMPIRICAL DATA. THE OBJECTIVE IS TO SEE TO WHAT EXTENT THE EMPIRICAL DATA "VALIDATES" THE EXPERTS' ESTIMATES, AS WELL AS THE MODELS USED FOR ANALYZING SUCH ...

  10. METHODS TO UNDERSTAND AND ANALYZE AGING EFFECTS

    SBC: Sea Consultants            Topic: N/A

    IN ORDER TO DEVELOP AN ACCURATE, ANALYTICAL REPRESENTATION OF THE EQUIPMENT AGING PROCESS, THE INTERACTIVE EFFECTS OF TTHE AGING PHENOMENON MUST BE UNDERSTOOD. FOR COMPLEX EQUIP MENT, THE INTERACTIVE EFFECT CAN BE DETERMINED BY PARTITION ING THE EQUIPMENT INTO SMALLER REPLACEABLE PARTS, DEFINING THE AGING AFFECTRS ON THE PARTS, AND THEN COMBINING THE PARTLEVEL EFFECTS TO REFLECT THE ASSEMBLED EQUI ...
