  1. Hadamard Transform Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry

    SBC: Biospect, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Multiplexed Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometers, such as the Hadamard Transform TOFMS (HT-TOFMS), show great promise in increasing MS sensitivity and spectral acquisition speed. Multiplexing the ion beam allows multiple ion packets to simultaneously coexistin the instrument flight tube, advantageously changing a pulsed TOF-MS into a continuously operating instrument. The heart of a HT-TOFMS, and t ...

  2. High Stiffness Passive Damping using Magnetostrictive Particulate Composite Materials

    SBC: CSA Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This effort will investigate a recent breakthrough in damping materials developed under AFOSR funding at UCLA for potential application to precision spacecraft component vibration mitigation. The effort will develop improved modeling and componentfabrication techniques for magnetostrictive composite materials. These materials exhibit moderate to high levels of damping via stress-induced domain wal ...

  3. Biomimetic Infrared Sensor Array for Real-Time Monitoring

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

    The objective of this proposal is to develop a low cost infrared imaging array for the 3-5 micron window. Current infrared imaging sensors are optimized for the 10 micron regime which corresponds to the wavelength emitted by a warm body (e.g. human). Theproposed lower wavelength regime would target hotter sources such as vehicle exhaust or other machinery indicative of human activity without req ...

  10. MEMS Refocusing Concentrator for Free Space Optics


    MicroAssembly Technologies and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories propose a MEMS-based refocusing secondary concentrator for regenerating optical signals distorted by atmospheric disturbances. An efficient secondary concentrator, based onMicroAssembly's high fill-factor micromirrors, would offer an adaptive optics solution for penetrating last-mile barriers. With the development of the pr ...
