  1. Microchip Analytical System for Inexpensive, Real-Time Aerosol Chemical Speciation

    SBC: MicroChemica            Topic: 14NCER1B

    Atmospheric aerosols, also known as particulate matter (PM), play important roles in weather, climate and human health. Aerosol number, size and chemistry can all exhibit high degrees of spatial and temporal variability, thereby increasing the need for highly time-resolved analyses obtained over extensive time periods (weeks to years). Instrumentation for monitoring the physical characteristics of ...

  2. Icosyanate-Free Polyurethane Coatings

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 14NCER3B

    Polyurethanes (PUs) are made by reacting two components, one of which has two or more hydroxyl (OH) groups (diol or polyol) while the second has two or more isocyanate (NCO) groups. Unfortunately, not only is the isocyanate component a powerful irritant, but sensitized subjects can suffer severe asthma attacks and even death when exposed to trace quantities that are well below permissible exposure ...

  3. Cost-effective Molecularly Imprinted Polymer Based Monitoring Technologies to Improve the Performance and Reliability of Small Drinking Water Systems

    SBC: SPORIAN MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: 14NCER4B

    Small drinking water systems consistently provide safe, reliable drinking water to their customers. However, challenges of such systems include lack of financial resources, aging infrastructure, cost of scale, and technical/logistical challenges associated with regulation compliance. The deployment of new cost-effective monitoring technologies, such as improved, low cost, in-line, in situ, and rem ...

  4. Novel Rewarming Technique for Cyropreserved Tissue

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: DHP15014

    TDAs proposes to develop a novel RF heating process for rewarming cryogenically preserved tissues and organs. TDAs approach is to optimize the RF frequency and power, along with the chemical composition, size and morphology of infused nanoparticles so that they heat tissue samples rapidly and uniformly. In this manner, the cryoprotectant solutions pass from the vitrified state to the liquid stat ...

  5. Novel Trap for Ticks and Fleas Incorporating a CO2 Generator

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: DHP13007

    Military personnel must be protected from diseases transmitted by ticks and fleas, including Lyme disease. Effective surveillance of tick and flea vectors is vital to determine the population present, whether they are carrying disease, and whether control campaigns are working. Unfortunately, current surveillance tools are ineffective. In Phase I TDA designed, prototyped, and tested a novel ti ...

  6. Hardening Advanced Methods for Predicting 3D Unsteady Flows Around Wind Turbines for Industrial Use

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: 02c

    Wind power plays an increasingly important role in satisfying the power needs of the U.S., and serves to reduce dependence on fossil fuels. With increased penetration, significant maintenance costs and reductions in power generation have underscored the need to predict the unsteady loading related to turbine configuration, layout and off-design wind conditions as well as importance of accounting ...

  7. Miniature fast response CCN counter

    SBC: Droplet Measurement Technologies Inc.            Topic: 19a

    There is an increasing need to understand the impacts particles emitted by both natural and human activities have on cloud properties, precipitation and climate. DOE has identified a need to improve the measurement capability of observational platforms, particularly in the Arctic region. One barrier to progress in understanding the interactions of particles and clouds and the importance of cloud c ...

  8. Online Thread Detection in Social Networks Using Accelerators

    SBC: Accelereyes LLC            Topic: 03a

    Problem Statement: Real-time analysis and monitoring of networks is crucial for threat detection. Networks are ubiquitous in todays world and can appear in many formats and to name a few we have: communication networks, social networks, and power networks. In many instances it is important to know who the key players are in the network these can be people, computers, or relay stations. One of the ...

  9. ATOMIC FORCE MICROSCOPE PROBES WITH INTEGRATED RESONANT STRAIN GAUGES

    SBC: FEMTOSCALE INC            Topic: 07b

    Problem Statement: Since the initial development stages of Atomic Force Microscope, AFMs with optical readout have become the center of attraction for researchers in the field. Despite offering high sensitivity and satisfactory performance, the optical setup is bulky and houses sophisticated and costly optical elements and assemblies that are highly sensitive and inconvenient to work with. This li ...

  10. Plasmonic-enhanced High Light Extraction Phosphor Sheets for Solid State Lighting

    SBC: PHOSPHORTECH            Topic: 09c

    Statement of the problem or situation that is being addressed - typically, one to three sentences. Solid state lighting (SSL) is a fast growing technology, which is starting to replace conventional lighting products such as fluorescent and incandescent bulbs. While the current efficiency of some commercial SSL products has surpassed those of most traditional lighting, it is still far below what th ...
