  2. Computational Biology Platform Technology for Cellular Reprogramming

    SBC: IREPROGRAM, LLC            Topic: ST17C001

    Methods for interconversion between cell types (cellular reprogramming) are currently discovered through resource intensive trial and error. Experiments may test a multitude of transcription factors to identify correct combinations that influence cell fate. In addition, reprogramming approaches commonly use stem cell intermediates such as induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), which are generated ...

  7. Broadband Self-calibrated Rydberg-based RF Electric Field and Power Sensor

    SBC: Rydberg Technologies LLC            Topic: SB152003

    Initial research and development towards a self-calibrated Rydberg-atom-based electric-field and power sensor for microwave and THz radiation is conducted. The sensor operates on atomic-physics and quantum-optics principles, especially electromagnetically induced transparency. Infrared and visual solid-state laser systems are employed to measure the energy levels of Rydberg atoms in room-temperatu ...

  8. Ovenized Inertial Micro Electro Mechanical Systems

    SBC: EPACK, INC.            Topic: SB152005

    Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) inertial (motion) sensors are now used for a wide range of consumer and industrial applications, but cant be used for many precision navigation applications because of their inaccuracy. In particular, the measurement (bias) stability of MEMS gyroscopes generally have temperature sensitivities of 10-100 degrees/hour/degree Celsius. This mean that even with smal ...
