  1. 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 strea ...

  2. Phase-Stabilized 1-GHz Fiber-Laser Frequency Combs at 2~5um for Coherent Fourier Transform Spectroscopy

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: N/A

    The GHz-rate phase-stabilized fiber-laser frequency comb system is proposed to be used as a light source for coherent Fourier transform spectroscopy. The system will be developed based on our proprietary glass/fiber technology, which features a low-cost, robust, highly stable, mid-infrared light source that enables the development of a robust portable c-FTIR spectrometer for absorption measurement ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Development of Pulse/DC Characterization System for LEDs

    SBC: Arroyo Instruments, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Development of LEDs for various applications, such a vehicle lighting, signage, and commercial and residential solid state lighting is progressing at a rapid pace. Various methods exist for measuring the performance of LEDs, but variations in test configurations, thermal management, T&M equipment, and operator experience lead to significant variation in measured performance. The project will d ...

  8. Low-Noise Detector Arrays for Raman Spectroscopy

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to demonstrate near infrared (NIR) sensor arrays with 10 times lower noise than arrays presently available to improve the sensitivity of current spectroscopy systems. Such an achievement would allow the measurement of new phenomena through Raman spectroscopy and other diagnostic techniques. The low noise performance is enabled by the use of low-noise Si readout integrated circuits mated ...

  10. Imaging Variable Kinetic Energy Electron Analyzer

    SBC: R. Browning Consultants            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this proposal is to create a prototype imaging variable kinetic energy electron analyzer in the range 0.1 to 8 keV for use with an X-ray excitation source. The imaging analyzer is to have a target imaging spatial resolution of 100 nm. The X-ray excitation source will be a synchrotron light source. The instrument can be described as an X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) microsc ...
