  3. A Nicotine Biosensor for Addiction Studies

    SBC: Pinnacle Technology, Inc.            Topic: NIDA

    ABSTRACT Tobacco-related deaths cost the United States approximately 200 billion each year. Nicotine is singularly responsible for the dependence-forming properties of tobacco smoking and, once introduced to the body, affects the brain within 15 seconds.Breaking nicotine addiction is challenging and relapse rates remain high. The extremely rapid timescale of nicotine action renders existing techn ...

  4. A Soil Probe for In-Situ Near Infrared Spectroscopic Measurement of Soil Carbon

    SBC: VERIS TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: 22a

    76063S International initiatives are underway to reduce greenhouse gases in the air. The sequestration of carbon in agricultural soils is a candidate technology for achieving this reduction; however, more rapid and less expensive methods of measuring soil carbon are needed. This project will develop a soil probe for carbon measurement based on near infrared reflectance spectroscopy. The probe ...

  5. A Soil Sampling System for On-the-Go Analysis and Mapping of pH and Other Properties

    SBC: Kejr, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: As crop growers begin to use GPS technology to manage the variability in their fields, they are seeking ways to assess the variability of physical and chemical properties more accurately and cost-effectively. In the most common approach, soil samples are acquired on a 2.5 acre grid pattern. Soil properties often have greater spatial variability than is identified with this a ...
