  1. Compact Raman Fiber Optic Probe with Inline Spectral Filtering

    SBC: Nikira Labs Inc.            Topic: None

    In this Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) effort, Nikira Labs Inc. proposes to develop a compact Raman fiber optic probe with inline spectral filtering that improves fiber-coupled Raman measurements by filtering out Raman scattering from the excitation fiber and elastically scattered laser light from the collection fibers. The technology will enable compact fiber probes for Raman studies i ...

  3. Miniature Video Camera Technology for Embedded Probes

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF171009

    The Arnold Engineering Development Complex (AEDC) uses water-cooled probes housing remote-head cameras to evaluate and monitor turbine engines. These cameras have traditionally been based on CCD (charge-coupled device) sensors outputting analog NTSC video signals. However, such cameras have numerous shortcomings including the introduction of noise over associated cabling, interlaced output format ...

  7. Micro Reactor Synthesis of Energetic Ionic Liquids

    SBC: Digital Solid State Propulsion, Inc            Topic: AF171061

    Current production of AF-M315E relies on foreign sourced materials. It also includes a nitration step to make HEHN from HEH which is currently done in a slow batch process. This program will build a microreactor to continuously produce HEHN, reducing the total time spent on the nitration process from weeks to days. This program will also scale up the electrolytic cell built in the Phase I program ...
