  1. High Power, Mid-Infrared Fiber Supercontinuum Light Source

    SBC: MESA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Modern supercontinuum (SC) light sources are generated by non-linear interactions between ultrashort pulse lasers and optical fibers. Output in near-ultraviolet to near-infrared wavelength ranges has been demonstrated. These light sources have high brightness and are spatially coherent. Recently, output to 4.5 µm was achieved using fluoride glass fibers; optical absorption by the fiber prevents l ...

  2. Innovative Residential Fire Sensor

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Southwest Sciences proposes development of residential fire sensing systems based on low cost optical imaging sensors combined with newly introduced highly miniaturized, low power CO sensors. Sensor modules will also include temperature sensors. The modules will be part of a low power wireless network. Each module will be about ½ the size of a business card, a few mm thick, and will operate for ...

  3. A Microcalorimeter Alpha Spectrometer for Analysis of Nuclear Material

    SBC: STAR CRYOELECTRONICS LLC            Topic: N/A

    A key factor of international efforts to identify and suppress the supply of and demand for nuclear materials, and thereby to deter potential traffickers, is the ability to accurately identify contradicted material and ultimately to trace it back to its origin. Alpha particle spectroscopy is widely used in nuclear forensics to assay trace quantities of sensitive nuclear materials, but the limited ...

  4. GPS-Tracked Buoy for Hydrographic Survey Applications

    SBC: NEPTUNE SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A long standing problem in oceanography and hydrography is accurate real-time measurement of offshore water levels. The Phase 1 research involved investigating a wide range of recent techniques and technologies, and performing analyses and trade-off studies to evaluate, select, and integrate them into a GPS-tracked buoy system (buoy, shore reference station for differential GPS, and repeater stati ...

  6. Antimonide Laser Spectrometer for measuring the flux of ammonia

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I SBIR research project will investigate the feasibility of an ammonia sensor based on an antimonide laser and an advanced, low noise modulation spectroscopy method. The rapid response and high sensitivity will allow the use of the eddy correlation method to provide continuous measurement of ammonia flux. Minor adjustments to the laser operating point will allow the instrument to measur ...

  7. Oxygen Sensor in Fires

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The ability to perform in-situ measurements of oxygen concentration in fire environments at a fast rate (better than 1 sec ) is not fulfilled by available sensor systems in the marketplace. Current systems involve extraction of gas samples with the required removal of water, particulate, and interfering chemical species, which can take several seconds to complete, prior to passing the samples to a ...

  9. N/A

    SBC: Pathway Technologies, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Based on the outline for a theory of intelligence, and using NIST's hierarchical real-time control system (RCS) architecture, in Phase I, we developed proof-of-concept OpenSim and OpenAnimation toolboxes consisting of the following innovations, namely, (i) Simulation and Animation Software Design that will seamlessly interface with RCS Hierarchy, (ii) Knowledge hierarchy consistent with the f ...
