  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. Service Management Software for Multi-Modal Interactions

    SBC: Beyond Access Communications            Topic: N/A

    Session Control technology, which tracks, controls, and directs all media sessions. Beyond Access proposes to provide feasibility into not only the core Session Control technology, but also an enabling software platform to connect, discover, and manage complex many-to-many multi-modal interaction sessions.

  6. Large Area Imaging Electron Energy Analyzer

    SBC: Synchrotron Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This project is to assess the feasibility of an instrument to provide energy-filtered electron images of a specimen at least 10mm by 10mm in size, operating over a 50-900eV energy range and suitable for NEXAFS chemical imaging. The applicant proposes to demonstrate feasibility by delivering a suitable electron-optical design along with calculated performance characteristics. Knowledge of the exist ...

  7. High Throughput Development of Low-Resistance Contact to p-type GaN by Combinatorial Screening of Surface Dopants

    SBC: Intematix Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Group III-nitrides with their wide bandgap properties are one of most promising materials not only in opto-electronics but also in high power and high temperature electronics. A critical issue in device applications of the nitride materials is the metal ohmic contact, which seriously limits the performance and efficiency of nitride-based devices. Finding suitable low-resistance Ohmic contacts for ...

  8. Fiberoptic Sensors for Thermal Therapy

    SBC: IPITEK, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal addresses the need for accurate, self-referencing temperature measurement in cancer treatments such as hyperthermia and RF ablation. In all of these therapies, conventional metallic sensors such as thermocouples are unattractive because they either interact with the heating field (hyperthermia, RF ablation) or have excessive thermal conductivity (cryoablation). Integrated Photonics T ...

  9. CAD Model and CR and MRI Scan Data to MCNP Input Format Conversion Software

    SBC: White Rock Science            Topic: N/A

    We will develop two programs to process data describing a model geometry and convert it to input acceptable to the Monte Carlo transport codes MCNP and MCNPX. One program will read CAD files in the ACIS solid body SAT format. Solid bodies, surfaces, and cells described in the SAT file will be converted to equivalent MCNP objects where available. Where there is no MCNP equivalent, such as for splin ...
