  1. Anion Exchange Resin for Chirality-based Separation of Single-wall Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: Sepax Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Sepax Technologies, Inc. has identified a new type of anoin-exchange resin which separates single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) with >80% recovery yield and resolves in a single pass the chiral tubes of (6,5) well from commercial SWCNT starting materials by Chromatography. Improvement and scale up of the targeted resin production will facilitate the separation of chiral nanotubes for the academic ...

  2. Improved Microcalorimeter Detectors for X-Ray Chemical Shift Mapping

    SBC: STAR CRYOELECTRONICS LLC            Topic: N/A

    X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy is a widely used and extremely sensitive analytical technique for qualitative as well as quantitative chemical analysis. Superconducting Transition Edge Sensor (TES) microcalorimeter detectors have now been developed that achieve an energy resolution of 2 eV (full width at half maximum) for 1.5 keV X-rays, which is sufficient to enable the measurement of the small s ...

  3. STTR Phase I: Autonomous Cognitive Radios for Smart Communications for First Responders

    SBC: K & A Wireless, LLC            Topic: ES

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project seeks to develop a cognitive radio system to provide reliable wireless communications to first responders. The ability to effectively use wireless is critical in emergency incident management and has been a major issue since 9/11 - with "interoperability" being the key phrase. The technology proposed is to develop a cognitive communica ...

  4. SBIR Phase I: Contextual ASR to Support EHR Adoption

    SBC: VMT, INC.            Topic: EI

    This Small Business Innovative Research SBIR Phase I project will use statistical analysis of historical medical records to create families of language models for each section of the traditional medical note and switch lexicons in and out of the automatic speech recognition (ASR) in real time based on the contextual position within the narrative note. Current speech recognition methods use a singl ...

  5. SBIR Phase I: Batch Wafer-Scale Fabrication of Improved Probe Tips for Scanned Probe Microscopy

    SBC: TIPTEK, LLC            Topic: NM

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will focus on the development and scale-up of a new process for fabricating probe tips for atomic force microscopy (AFM). In AFM, images of surfaces with atomic-scale resolution are created by rastering a probe across the surface. The probe itself consists of a tip (which interacts with the surface) and a body (which supports the tip and prov ...

  6. SBIR Phase I: Electrochemical Systems for the Reduction of Oxyhalide Species

    SBC: MIOX Corporation            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project proposes to develop novel approaches to water treatment that cost-effectively remove inorganic disinfection byproducts (DBPs) in water. These DBPs, known as oxyhalides, are typically associated with standard water disinfection methods but can also be present in water as a result of industrial contamination. Oxyhalides present known public hea ...

  7. SBIR Phase I: Cultivation of Duckweed for Bioremediation of Delaware and Chesapeake Watersheds, and for the Sustainable Production of a Renewable Chemical Feedstock

    SBC: ELCRITON, INC            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims to develop a duckweed system for poultry waste bioremediation and use of the duckweed as a renewable feedstock for Clostridium acetobutylicum (Cac) biofuel production. Runoff from agricultural, municipal and other sources leads to eutrophication of the Chesapeake and other bays, with approximately half of the loads from agricultur ...

  8. Catalytic Suppressor System for Reducing Diesel Emissions

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: BC

    This SBIR project will develop a new technology for the removal and destruction of NOx pollutants from diesel engine exhaust. Four important issues will be addressed in the project. The first issue will be applying a zeolite coating to reticulated catalyst supports with the correct chemical composition and pore size distribution. The second issue will be doping the zeolite metal with an ion exc ...

  9. SBIR Phase I:Electromagnetic Pulse Sensors Based on Magnetic Nanowire Arrays

    SBC: SPECTRUM MAGNETICS LLC            Topic: NM

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims to develop novel field detectors and memory devices capable of detecting magnetic field of an electromagnetic pulse (EMP). The sensor is made of magnetic nanowire arrays consisting of magnetic nanowires embedded in an insulating matrix, and is able to memorize the incoming rf magnetic field pulse as short as 100ps and survive in a ...
