  2. Sterilizing Medical Equipment With One Atmosphere Uniform Glow Discharge Plasma

    SBC: Atmospheric Glow Technologies            Topic: N/A

    The goal of this Phase I research project is to investigate the feasibility and commercial potential of using the One Atmosphere Uniform Glow Discharge Plasma (OAUGDPTM) as a low-temperature sterilization process for medical equipment. Current sterilization technologies that pose a risk to health care workers and the environment are being phased out of use (e.g., ethylene oxide sterilization). T ...

  3. Ultrasensitive Biosensor for Detecting Bioxotins in Drinking Water

    SBC: BIOSCALE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The goal of this Phase I research project is to develop a novel MicroElectroMechanical Systems-based sensor capable of detecting low levels of biotoxins in drinking water. An automated detection system based on this technology will fulfill a critical need in homeland security threat management. Central to the proposed sensing approach is a resonating microstructure optimized for sensitive system ...

  4. Use of a Genetically Modified Organism To Assess Sewer Line Integrity

    SBC: BioTrackers            Topic: N/A

    When sewer exfiltration leaks into the environment, the entry of fecal bacteria into groundwater and surface water increases health risks. Leaking sewers also are suspected sources of fecal contamination in many surface waters designated for total maximum daily load (TMDL) plans. Development of TMDL plans has been hindered by the lack of a reliable and cost-effective method to identify fecal con ...

  5. MEMS-Based Volatile Organic Compound Monitor

    SBC: BOSTON MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: N/A

    Boston MicroSystems, Inc. (BMS), proposes to develop a MicroElectroMechanical System (MEMS) based volatile organic compound (VOC) monitor by integrating analyte-specific polymer films with SiC-AlN microresonators. In this research project, BMS and the Naval Research Laboratory will integrate microresonators and polymer films with functional groups sensitive to aromatic compounds (e.g., benzene an ...

  6. Novel Ceramic Membrane Bioreactor for Low-Flow Systems

    SBC: Ceramem Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Improved low-flow (50,000 gallons per day) sanitary wastewater treatment systems are needed. CeraMem Corporation¿s proposed approach includes a membrane bioreactor (MBR) using fully proven biological processes for biological oxygen demand oxidation and (optionally) for nutrient removal (i.e., denitrification and phosphorus removal). The technology has as a key inventive element¿a novel, compac ...

  7. Ultrasensitive Toxic Chemical Detector

    SBC: Implant Sciences Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The ability to detect and identify trace quantities of hazardous materials has become a significant requirement for protecting the population during the war on terrorism. However, the ability to detect and identify trace concentrations of a wide range of chemicals in the field using a man-portable instrument is severely limited. The ability to quickly and reliably identify toxic industrial chemi ...

  8. Compact, Low-Cost, Long Optical Path, Mutiple Gas NDIR Sensor

    SBC: ION OPTICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    There is a need for affordable atmospheric and industrial monitoring and controlling systems that can reliably detect and quantify volatile organic compound (VOC) pollution sources within the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency range of regulating standards. These sensors must measure VOC concentration in the range of 1 to 50 ppm to a high degree of accuracy and with a very short response time. ...

  9. Wafer Level Supercritical Carbon Bioxide-Based Metal Depositon for Microelectronic Applications

    SBC: MiCell Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal describes the application, development and commercial scale-up of a process successfully developed under EPA contract number EP-D-04-042 for the deposition of copper and copper barrier materials such as ruthenium, titanium and other metals. This process could replace CU electroplating currently used to fill deep trenches and thin film deposition in microelectronic circuit manufactur ...

  10. Multi-Metal Monitoring System Based Upon Spark-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Physical Sciences, Inc. (PSI) proposes to develop a multi-metals emissions monitor to support Title V permitting of large air pollution source based upon its patented spark-induced breakdown spectroscopy (SIBS) technology. Work prior to Phase I has shown that this technique is capable of sensitively monitoring metals in airborne particles that emit in the visible (Pb, Cr, and Cd for example). In ...
