  1. Adaptive mask flow photometer

    SBC: Actinix            Topic: 822

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: A flow micro-photometer is proposed that can measure absorption and backscatter from single aquatic particles including phytoplankton, detritus and minerals. This instrument will make use of a novel adaptive diaphragm to define an analysis region of interest that exactly matches the size, shape and orientation of each particle being analyzed. A micro-fluidic chip will be used t ...

  2. A Method for Specification of Efficeint and Effective Strategies for Measurement of a Measurement Article on a Coordinate Measuring Machine by Use of Measurement Simulation Techniques

    SBC: METROSAGE, L L C            Topic: N/A

    We propose the definition, design, and prototype development of a software tool for use by the U.S. manufacturing community to enable the automated production of design-based measurement strategies of know reliability and high economic efficiency for coordinate measuring machines (CMMs). The measurement strategies so generated will meet the objective of reducing overall costs to near-minimal value ...

  3. APA: Air Pressure Alert Device

    SBC: DESERT STAR SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: 814

    For divers, out of air situations present a particular hazard. They can result in a dangerous emergency ascent, or failure of a diver to reach the surface. A low air pressure alert (APA) device can provide a valuable margin of safety, but careful design is required. In order for the device to be adopted, it must no t only be effective but it must offer ease of use and a streamlined, erogonomic des ...

  7. High Efficiency, Large-Area, 1550 nm InGaAs Photodiodes

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A back-illuminated planar InGaAs photodiode tested to have 95% quantum effiiency (QE) at 1550 nm, area greater than 1 mm2, low capacitance (125 MHz) will be improved. Although the existing Phase I device exhibited bulk material dark current generation better than commercially available devices, the sidewall-generated dark current was found to dominate the noise equiva ...
