  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. Realizaiton of Large Area Imaging Magnetic Analyzer

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

    Two distinct designs with performance characteristics for analyzers consistent with the solicitation requirements were delivered in Phase 1. The Phase 1 research and modeling results have been sufficiently conclusive to indicate feasibility of both designs. The more novel of the two designs is proposed: a hybrid magnetic/electrostatic analyzer that features very high collection and transmission ef ...

  7. ErAs:GaAs Photomixers for High-Resolution THz Spectroscopy

    SBC: Physical Domains            Topic: N/A

    A new type of THz photomixer will be developed using a submicron interdigitated-electrode structure fabricated on an Eras:GaAs ultrafast photoconductive layer, an AIAs heat spreader and an AIGas/AIAs dielecric mirror. The Eras:GaAs-based photomixer will provide extremely wide tuning bandwidth (>1 decade) and a continuous-wave output power of roughly 10 microwatt around 100 GHz, at least 1 microwat ...

  8. UHV Solid State Detector for Wavelength Dispersive X-Ray Spectrometer

    SBC: Radiant Detector Technologies, Llc            Topic: N/A

    Wavelength dispersive spectrometers (WDS) are widely used in both scanning electron microscopes and scanning transmission electron microscopes for x-ray elemental analysis and mapping. The WDS systems are typically used to detect x-rays in the 100 eV - 2000 eV energy range, for chemical analysis of elements Be through P. Despite the excellent energy resolution of the WDS systems, they rely on gas ...

  9. Advanced Microcalorimeter Instrumentation for X-Ray Microanalysis

    SBC: STAR CRYOELECTRONICS LLC            Topic: N/A

    An innovative superconducting transition edge sensor (TES) microcalorimeter array with superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID) readouts is described for high energy and high spatial resolution X-ray energy dispersive spectroscopy and microanalysis. The proposed microcalorimeter instrument offers an energy resolution that is comparable to and potentially even better than wavelength disp ...

  10. Intelligent Fire Information System

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Modern technology has significantly impacted advanced fire alarm systems. As the sophistication of new devices increases, so has the quantity of data they are capable of collecting. However in current alarm systems only a small portion of the available information is used. Without the continuous utilization of data from each detector it is difficult to gain an accurate view on the fire's progressi ...
