  1. A Miniaturized Carbon Dioxide Detector

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 819S

    NOAA supports over 25,000 underwater dive programs per year.  To increase the duration and depth of these dives, the use of closed circuit mixed gas rebreathers (CCRs) is being considered.  As there currently are no sensors to detect CO2 levels in the breathing gas, Giner, Inc. proposes to continue development of an electrochemical CO2 sensor for CCR use.  The technical innovation i ...

  2. Near-IR Differential Absorption Lidar for Automated Water Vapor Profiling

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: 832

    Measurement of vertical profiles of H2O vapor density in the troposphere can provide new understanding of H2O vapor mass transport.  Increased density o9f such measurements can improve predictive capability for precipitation in meteorology and can increase our understanding of feedback mechanisms involving the interaction of H2O vapor, radiative balance and precipitation that are important in ...

  3. High-Performance Opto-Electronic Oscillator for Millimeter Wave

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Leveraging Agiltron¿s recent breakthrough in the broad band and tunable photonic high-Q factor RF filtering technique, we propose to develop a high-spectral-purity, low-phase-noise, spurs-free opto-electronic oscillator (OEO) operating at W-band for the NIST applications. Based on our unique technical approach and successful development in low loss fiber optics, RF photonic components/modules, an ...

  4. A Fully Integrated Commercial Multi-sample Multi-Slit Rheometer

    SBC: CAMBRIDGE POLYMER GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Proposed here is the continued development of an innovative rheometer configuration design at NIST. It describes the determination of suitable detection, drive, control, software and assembly designs for a commercially viable, fully integrated device. The initial efforts will concentrate on examining the sub-systems of the design. An important feature of the proposed strategy is early commercial i ...

  5. Developing Centrifugation Based Length Separation of SWCNTs for Advanced Applications

    SBC: Eikos, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Carbon nanotubes are one of the most studied and potentially useful nanoparticles known. However, presently even the purest are only commercially available in mixtures of chiralities and lengths. Even though numerous lab scale methods to separate them have been demonstrated, few offer the potential to be scaled and offered as a product. Eikos has found that, for many applications, nanotube length ...

  7. Optimized Soft Magnetic Electrodes for Ultra-sensitive Magnetic Tunnel Juction Field Sensors

    SBC: Micro Magnetics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR project aims to develop a new class of low-field magnetic sensors based on magnetic tunnel junctions with magnesium oxide (MgO) tunnel barriers. The Phase II effort will continue the optimization of sensor performance, based on three major research thrusts. First of all, we will continue the magnetic engineering effort, turning the properties of the two key magnetic electrodes, in order ...

  8. Compact Integrated System for Quantifying Inhaler Dose Concentration

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Aerosol delivery of pharmaceuticals is an effective means of treating numerous diseases. Proper administration of drugs in this form requires knowledge of the droplet size and concentration of the active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) within the aerosol. Optical imaging is a robust method for obtaining this information. Physical Sciences Incorporated proposes to develop, build, and test a novel m ...

  9. Sensor Systems for Complete Residential Energy Monitoring

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: N/A

    A major challenge in assessing the effectiveness of energy conservation measures in buildings is conveying real-time information about energy consumption by particular end-use to occupants. Advances needed to address this challenge for commercial success include making these components inexpensive, easy to install and operate, and supportive of intuitive decision making about energy usage. The gap ...

  10. Phased array ultrasonic aircraft fatigue damage inspection

    SBC: ACOUSTIC IDEAS, INC.            Topic: AF083246

    The practice of removing aircraft from service and disassembling parts of its structure for periodic inspection negatively impacts readiness and leads to high sustainment costs. Using Acoustic Ideas''''''''s uniquely powerful and versatile phased array technology we will develop a novel inspection method that does not require disassembly. Multiple layers, large thicknesses, dissimilar metals, seal ...
