  1. Micro-Positioner Replacement of Piezo Actuators in Long-working Distance Interference Microscopes

    SBC: E. M. Optomechanical, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The NIST patented six-degree of freedom micropositioner technology associated with this subtopic has been identified by E M Optomechanical, Inc. (EMOM) as a technology that could be incorporated into the company¿s long-working distance interference microscopes. A key element in these microscopes is a piezo-actuator device, installed in a manual pitch/yaw mount, which translates a small flat mirro ...

  2. High Power, Mid-Infrared Fiber Supercontinuum Light Source

    SBC: MESA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Modern supercontinuum (SC) light sources are generated by non-linear interactions between ultrashort laser pulses and optical fibers. These light sources have high brightness and are spatially coherent. Output in near-ultraviolet to near-infrared wavelength ranges has been demonstrated. SC wavelength ranges are constrained by the transmission and dispersion properties of the fibers. Previously, ou ...

  3. Innovative Residential Fire Detection

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Southwest Sciences¿ Phase 2 SBIR project will lead to development of residential fire sensing systems based on recently developed, low cost temperature and optical imaging sensors combined with newly introduced highly miniaturized, micropower CO sensors. Sensor modules will be part of a low power wireless network. Each module will be about ½ the size of a business card, a few mm thick, and w ...

  4. Microcalorimeter Alpha Spectrometer for Analysis of Nuclear Material

    SBC: STAR CRYOELECTRONICS LLC            Topic: N/A

    A key factor of international efforts to identify and suppress the supply of and demand for nuclear materials, and thereby to deter potential traffickers, is the ability to accurately identify contradicted material and ultimately to trace it back to its origin. Alpha particle spectroscopy is widely used in nuclear forensics to assay trace quantities of sensitive nuclear materials, but the limited ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...
