  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 ...

  8. SCOPING ANALYSIS OF LWR SHUTDOWN ACCIDENTS INITIATED BY EARTHQUAKES AND INTERNAL FIRES

    SBC: Future Resources Associate Inc            Topic: N/A

    THERE HAS RECENTLY BEEN HEIGHTENED CONCERN FOR THE POSSIBILITY THAT NUCLEAR POWER-PLANT ACCIDENTS DURING SHUTDOWNS COULD BE IMPORTANT CONTRIBUTORS TO THE OVERALL RISK PROFILE OF THESE PLANTS. THE 1986 SOVIET ACCIDENT AT CHERNOBYL WAS THE PRINCIPAL EVENT THAT LED TO THIS HEIGHTENED CONCERN, BUT A FEW RECENT EVENTS AT U.S. PLANTS HAVE ALSO CONTRIBUTED. TODAY, IT IS WIDELY UNDERSTOOD THAT THE RISK OF ...

  9. A COMPACT SIMULATOR FOR TRAINING OF OPERATORS AND MAINTENANCE PERSONNEL

    SBC: Technology International Incorporated of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    TII SHALL PROCURE, DESIGN, CONSTRUCT, AND TEST A COMPACT PORTABLE SIMULATOR CAPABLE OF EMULATING NUCLEAR POWER STATION-OPERATOR (NPS-OP) INTERFACES, AND EVALUATE AND TEST VARIOUS INTERFACE DESIGNS. THE SUMULATOR WILL BE DESIGNED FOR OPERATOR TRAINING ON ADVANCED REACTORS AND WILL BE USED IN SIMULATING OPERATORS SCENARIOS AND RECORDING AND DOCUMENTING REAL-TIME INPUT FROM THE OPERATOR. THE SIMULATO ...
