  1. Construction of a Force Probe for Characterization of Microscale Features

    SBC: INSITUTEC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The Phase 2 objective is to provide NIST with a modular gauge head unit equipped with InsituTec's standing wave probe technology. The complete gauge head unit will be retrofitted to the NIST M48 which is one of the most precise measuring machines in the world. This unit will enable NIST to achieve the agency's program goal in dimensional metrology which is to provide microscale measurement capacit ...

  2. Tool Condition Monitoring and Diagnostics

    SBC: VulcanCraft            Topic: N/A

    A smart machine tool must be able to monitor its condition and report problems. Every CNC machine should provide an alarm for tool condition problems, including tool wear, much as every automobile has a low oil indicator. Tool wear is particularly important for unattended machining as a worn tool can ruin a part. All current tool condition systems operate "blind" without direct information on curr ...

  4. SBIR Phase I: An Innovative Photobioreactor for Commercial Production of Astaxanthin from Genetically Improved Haematococcus Pluvialis Strains

    SBC: ALGAEN CORPORATION            Topic: BT

    This Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims to develop an innovative large-scale photobioreactor for production of natural astaxanthin from Haematococcus strains. The phase I research plan is to construct and evaluate an innovative modular flat-plate photobioreactor for mass culture of the organism. The improved production system, along with a genetically improved Haematoco ...

  5. SBIR Phase II: Development of a Novel Sensing Material for Waterborne Pathogens

    SBC: ANALYTICAL BIOLOGICAL SERVICES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II Project proposes to develop a method to detect Cryptosporidium parvum oocyst in water using a novel sensing coating deposited on filters. C. parvum has been responsible for a number of outbreaks of cryptosporidiosis, including the outbreak in Milwaukee in 1993 that affected 400,000 people. Crytosporidiosis is characterized by abdominal pain ...

  7. SBIR Phase I: Nano-Aluminum Production for Lithium Ion Battery Electrodes

    SBC: AP Materials            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will develop low-oxygen, nanometer-sized aluminum powders with a narrow particle size distribution to be employed in the anodes of lithium ion batteries. Specifically, this research addresses the need to process nanometer sized aluminum particles such that they do not spontaneously oxidize on contact with air or moisture so the particles may ...

  8. SBIR Phase II: High Surface Area Tantalum Powder for Capacitor Applications

    SBC: AP Materials            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will scale-up a new technology for producing high-surface area tantalum powders for the electronic capacitor industry. The existing technology is over 30 years old and cannot keep pace with the needs of smaller electronics, which require tantalum particles in the nanometer size range. In addition, environmental factors are driving t ...
