  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 ...

  5. BWR RECIRCULATION INLET SAFE ENDS-A THREAT TO PLANT LIFE ANDSAFETY

    SBC: Aptech Engineering Services            Topic: N/A

    AN ON-GOING THREAT TO THE RESIDUAL LIFETIME AND SAFETY OF BOILING WATER REACTORS (BWRS) IS INTERGRANULAR STRESS CORROSION CRACKING (IGSCC). A COMPONENT OF SPECIAL CONCERN IN THE RECIRCULATION INLET NOZZLE SAFE END (RINSE). FOR EXAMPLE, WITHIN THE LAST 2 YEARS 30 OUT OF 30 RINSES ARE KNOWN TO BE CRACKED AT A 3-UNIT BWR SITE AND IT IS BELIEVED THAT 20 OUT OF 20 RINSES ARE CRACKED AT A 2-UNIT BWR SIT ...

  6. IMPROVED MODEL FOR PREDICTING J-R CURVES FROM CHARPY DATA

    SBC: Modeling & Computing Services            Topic: N/A

    IT IS NECESSARY TO ESTIMATE J-R OR JI DATA FOR AGING AND RE-SIDUAL LIFE STUDIES, USING DATA FROM SURVEILLANCE CAPSULE SPECIMENS THAT REFLECT THE CURRENT STATE OF THE PRESSURE VESSEL STEEL. AN IMPROVED MODEL IS NEEDED THAT WILL PREDICT J J-R DATA FROM CHARPY DATA, TENSILE PROPERTIES, MATERIAL COM-POSITION AND OTHER MEASURABLE PROPERTIES. SUCH A MODEL WILLBE DEVELOPED UNDER THIS PROJECT, USING INNOV ...

  7. DEVELOPMENT OF A REAL TIME LONG RANGE RADIOACTIVE PLUME TRANSPORT SIMULATION MODEL

    SBC: PHYSICAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW LONG RANGE RADIOACTIVE PLUME TRANSPORT CODE IS PROPOSED. NEW APPROACHES TO ESTIMATE THE RADIOACTIVE DECAY, WET AND DRY DEPOSITION, PARTICULATE COAGULATION, AND ATMOSPHERIC PARAMETERS WILL BE EXPLORED AND A SIMPLE, IDEALIZED EVALUATION OF THESE ALGORITHMS WILL BE MADE IN PHASE I OF THE PROPOSED EFFORT. BASED ON THESE STUDIES A) AN APPROPRIATE NEAR SOURCE RISE ...
