  1. Equipment and Facilities for Rapid Installation of Buried Innerduct Network for Utility Lines

    SBC: Outside Plant Consulting Services, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The feasibility of the universal placement of telecommunications and power supply lines below ground, as an alternative to their typically low-cost installation on utility poles, depends upon the availability of a cost-effective convenient method for placing and replacing cables belowground. A network of underground conduits constructed of field-assembled rigid sections, including straight segmen ...

  2. SBIR Phase II: Development of Chiral Fiber Polarizer

    SBC: CHIRAL PHOTONICS, INC            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will develop a new class of in-fiber chiral polarizers based upon chiral fiber gratings. A double helix variation of the effective refractive index will be formed by twisting fibers with a noncircular core as they pass through a miniature oven. These chiral fiber polarizers will be created from specially prepared glass performs in a l ...

  4. SBIR Phase I: An Efficient, Linear, Free Radical Source for Compound Thin Film Deposition

    SBC: Energy Photovoltaics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will develop an efficient and flexible device to produce a neutral, linearly-extended, free radical flux for photovoltaic and semiconductor industry applications. This source can produce atomic chalcogen species (sulfur, selenium, tellurium) and other types of free radicals (such as atomic oxygen, hydrogen, nitrogen or chlorine) for formation ...

  5. SBIR Phase I: A Software Tool for Teaching Reading Based on Text-to-Speech Letter-to-Phoneme Rules

    SBC: E-Speech Corporation            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project proposes to develop software for interactive teaching of reading, based on letter-to-phoneme rules developed for an entirely different technology, namely computer text-to-speech synthesis (TTS). Awareness of letter-phoneme correspondences is important for learning to read English. However, no tools are available that identify and apply all t ...

  6. SBIR Phase I: Solid Acid Catalyst with Optimally Distributed Active Sites

    SBC: Exelus, Inc.            Topic: AM

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims to develop a novel solid acid catalyst for paraffin alkylation in an effort to provide refiners with a cost-effective alternative for producing clean fuels without the need for corrosive liquid acids. A new family of multifunctional catalysts is being developed, that significantly reduce catalyst deactivation rates. This is achiev ...

  8. SBIR Phase I: High Performance Polycarbonate Nanocomposites

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop high performance polycarbonate nanocomposites. Polycarbonate possess poor abrasion and chemical resistance and shows crazing and cracking upon stress. Incorporation of clay particles in a polymer matrix can overcome above-mentioned problems. However, the major obstacle to successful fabrication of polycarbonate-clay nanoco ...

  9. SBIR Phase I: Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Patient Monitoring System with Microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS) Cardio Sensor

    SBC: New Jersey Microsystems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims to develop a wireless and batteryless RFID heart monitoring system based on phonocardiograph MEMS technology. The system uses a disposable MEMS sensor in the form of adhesive tags that receive power remotely through a remote radio frequency source. In this proposed system, heart sound is obtained through wireless communication wi ...

  10. SBIR Phase II: High Resolution Infrared Imager

    SBC: Noble Device            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project aims to leverage new materials technology to drive a revolution in infrared imaging. Silicon imagers are widely used, from supermarket scanners to the ultra-sensitive charge-coupled devices (CCDs) used in astronomy. Germanium is photo-sensitive over a wider spectrum, from visible to well into the infrared. Combining this new spectral ...
