  1. Low-Cost Hybrid Plasmonic and Photonic "Campanile" Near-Field Probes by Nanoimprint Lithography

    SBC: HighRI Optics, Inc.            Topic: 07a

    Near-field scanning optical microscopy (NSOM) is a powerful and unique approach to characterize the chemical, physical and potentially biochemical properties of materials with the nanometer scale resolution in real-time. A key element for NSOM systems that combine optical spectroscopy with scanning probe microscopy, is the actual probe itself. While many commercial vendors offer off-the-shelf meta ...

  7. Novel Thermal Barrier Coatings for Gasoline Spark Ignition Engines

    SBC: Solution Spray Technologies, LLC            Topic: 13c

    Currently spark ignition (SI) engines dominate the light vehicle market, with over 80 million light vehicle engines made worldwide. These SI engines experience exceptionally poor efficiency at low to medium loads and speeds, making it difficult to meet new fuel efficiency standards expected to be imposed in many countries. Low wall temperatures at the end of the combustion process leads to emissio ...

  10. Wide Angle Neutron Spin Echo Device

    SBC: ADELPHI TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: 12a

    The Neutron Spin Echo (NSE) method has provided unique information about the dynamics of soft materials, including confirmation of the de Gennes model of polymer reptation, and quantitative measurement of the bending moduli of various membranes. In almost all cases these measurements have been made at small neutron scattering angles, where structural correlations with length scales between 10 nm a ...
