  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. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. DEVELOPMENT OF A DYNAMIC OPERATIONAL RISK MODEL TO SUPPORT RISK MANAGEMENT OF NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS

    SBC: Accident Prevention Group            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT ACTIVITY WITHIN THE NRC AND THE NUCLEAR INDUSTRY SEEKS TO EXPLOIT THE BENEFITS OF PRA IN RISK-BASED APPROACHES TO RELIEVE REGULATORY BURDEN ON THE ECONOMICALLY THREATENED NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS. THE ACCIDENT PREVENTION GROUP HAS BEEN DEVELOPING THE CONCEPT OF AN INTEGRATED RISK MANAGEMENT PROGRAM (IRMP) TOWARD SUCH GOALS. A KEY ELEMENT OF AN IRMP IS AN "OPERATIONAL RISK MODEL" OF THE NPP THA ...

  7. SMART WATER-REACTIVE GROUTS FOR UNDERGROUND ENTOMBMENT FACILITIES

    SBC: Guyer Santin, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL IS TO ADDRESS THE FEASIBILITY OF WATER-REACTIVE GROUTS AS A "SMART" MATERIAL CAPABLE OF BEING PLACED DURING CONSTRUCTION BUT NOT ACTIVATED UNTIL A THREAT EVENT OCCURS WHICH DEGRADES THE ORIGINAL WATERTIGHT INTEGRITY. WHEN SUCH DEGRADATION OCCURS, IT WILL EXPOSE THE WATER-REACTIVE GROUT TO GROUNDWATER. THIS WILL TRIGGER THE HARDENING PROCESS WHICH WILL AUTOMATICALLY AFFECT A EAL AT TH ...

  8. CONTROL ROOM INLEAKAGE TEST

    SBC: Lagus Applied Technology Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A SIMPLIFIED RECONNAISSANCE-TYPE TEST IS PROPOSED THAT UTILIZES THE TECHNIQUES OF TRACER GAS VENTILATION TESTING TO QUANTIFY THE UNFILTERED AIR INLEAKAGE INTO AN OPERATING NUCLEAR POWER PLANT CONTROL ROOM. THE TEST WILL BE DEVELOPED TO ENCOMPASS THE FIVE BASIC TYPES OF CONTROL ROOM EMERGENCY VENTILATION SYSTEMS. A THOROUGH ERROR ANALYSIS WILL ALSO BE UNDERTAKEN. A DETAILED TESTING PROTOCOL SUITABL ...

  10. A PORTABLE IMAGING SYSTEM FOR NONDESTRUCTIVE EXAMINATION OF NUCLEAR POWER PLANT COMPONENTS

    SBC: T P L, INC            Topic: N/A

    THE DIFFICULTY IN PREDICTING STRUCTURAL DEGRADATION RATES FOR NUCLEAR POWER PLANT COMPONENTS DUE TO CORROSION AND OTHER FACTORS HAS LED TO THE NEED FOR COSTLY, TIME CONSUMING INSPECTIONS AND INCREASED COST FROM INTENTIONALLY OVERDESIGNED COMPONENTS. THE SITUATION INDICATES A SERIOUS, UNMET NEED FOR A SIMPLE BUT ACCURATE SYSTEM FOR REAL- TIME, IN SITU, NONDESTRUCTIVE ANALYSIS OF NUCLEAR POWER PLANT ...
