  2. Non-Toxic Obscurants and Dispersal System

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: SOCOM06007

    SOCOM and other DOD services have urgent need for safe, non-toxic visual obscurants that can be rapidly dispersed in a battlefield or into a vehicle. These obscurants must block or disrupt all visual capability within their area of effect. The dispersion must be rapid and easy to implement by field personnel. Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) will develop a non-toxic obscurant and dispersion system c ...

  3. Lithium-Ion (Li-ion) and Lithium-ion Polymer (Li-polymer) Battery Safety

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: OSD09EP1

    Physical Sciences, Inc. (PSI) has demonstrated that electroactive polymer coatings (EAP) may be applied to the surface of the cathode materials for lithium-ion batteries to protect against catastrophic cell failure. These EAP coatings form an electrochemical"switch"that can prevent catastrophic failure in lithium-ion batteries by reversibly changing from a conductor to an insulator on overdischarg ...

  4. Low Cost and Rapid DNA-Based Biometric Device

    SBC: NetBio, Inc.            Topic: HSB091001

    Sensitive site exploitation activities are focused on collecting forensic evidence left behind by persons involved in terrorist or other illegal activity, and the biological evidence recovered is often referred to as"touch DNA samples". Touch samples include fingerprints, skin cells found on clothing (e.g. a shirt collar), and oral epithelial cells found on the opening of a soda can or the rim of ...

  5. DRY ELECTROSTATIC FLY ASH PROCESSING FOR ACTIVATED CARBON RECOVERY

    SBC: Advanced Energy Dynamics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    RESEARCH ON SEPARATION AND RECOVERY OF ACTIVATED CARBON FROMFLYASH, TOGETHER WITH RECOVERY OF AN ASTM-APPROVED CEMENT SUBSTITUTE USING ADVANCED ENERGY DYNAMICS' STATE-OF-THE-ART ELECTROSTATIC SEPARATION PROCESS IS PROPOSED. THIS PROCESS USES THE DIFFERENCES IN WORK FUNCTIONS OF PARTICLES OF DIVERSE COMPOSITION TO EFFECT A SEPARATION OF PROCESSED MATERIAL. IT HAS THE POTENTIAL OF TRANSFORMING FLYAS ...

  6. ATOMIC CHLORINE SOURCE FOR SEMICONDUCTOR ETCHING STUDIES

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CLEAN SOURCES OF ATOMIC CHLORINE ARE REQUIRED FOR MECHANISTIC STUDIES OF SEMICONDUCTOR ETCHING PROCESSES. IN THIS PROPOSAL, AERODYNE RESEARCH, INC. DESCRIBES MODIFICATIONS TO AN EXISTING ULTRAHIGH VACUUM COMPATIBLE, EFFUSIVE BEAM, MICROWAVE DISCHARGE FLUORINE ATOM SOURCE WHICH WOULD ALLOW ITS USE AS A SOURCE OF CHLORINE ATOMS, AND THEY DEFINE MEASUREMENTS TO CHARACTERIZE AND DEMONSTRATE ITS OPERAT ...

  7. ATMOSPHERIC TRACE GAS FLUX METER USING TUNABLE DIODE LASERS

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE PURPOSE OF THE PROPOSED STUDY IS THE DEVELOPMENT OF INSTRUMENTATION TO MEASURE FLUXES OF ATMOSPHERIC TRACE GASES TO OR FROM THE EARTH'S SURFACE. THE METHOD WE PROPOSEIS BASED ON THE WELL ESTABLISHED EDDY CORRELATION TECHNIQUE AND WOULD USE A TUNABLE DIODE LASER LIGHT SOURCE COMBINED WITH A MULTIPLE PASS ABSORPTION CELL TO DETECT TRACE SPECIES AT SUB-PART-PER-BILLION LEVELS. THE PROPOSED INSTRU ...

  9. THALLIUM BROMIDE NUCLEAR DETECTORS

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THALLIUM BROMIDE (T1BR) IS A NEW CUBIC SEMICONDUCTOR. THE HIGH ATOMIC NUMBERS OF ITS CONSTITUENT ELEMENTS GIVES IT EXTRAORDINARY PHOTOELECTRIC ABSORPTION EFFICIENCY FOR GAMMA PHOTONS, WHILE ITS 2.5 EV BANDGAP PROMISES PERFORMANCE AT TEMPERATURES UP TO 250XC. IT HAS SHOWN SOME PROMISE AS AHIGH EFFICIENCY SOLID-STATE DETECTOR, BUT EARLY DEVICES WERELIMITED BY MATERIAL IMPURITIES AND IMPERFECTIONS. I ...

  10. HIGH TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTOR RADIATION DETECTOR

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NUCLEAR RADIATION SENSORS ARE USED IN MANY IMPORTANT APPLICATIONS IN RESEARCH AND INDUSTRY. GOOD ENERGY RESOLUTION IS A VITAL PROPERTY OF NUCLEAR RADIATION SPECTROMETERS. THE BEST CONTEMPORARY COMMERCIAL UNITS CAN DISCRIMINATE DIFFERENCES ABOUT 100 EV. BETTER PERFORMANCE HAS BECOME AVAILABLE THROUGH THE APPLICATION OF LOW TC SUPERCONDUCTORS WHICH HAVE ATTAINED RESOLUTION OF TENS OF EV. SUCH DEVICE ...
