  1. Quantum Cascade Laser Monitor for N0, N02 and 03

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

    This project will design and deliver a high accuracy monitor for the photo-chemically coupled pollutants nitric oxide, nitrogen dioxide and ozone using infrared absorption spectroscopy with quantum cascade (QC) lasers. The target molecules are monitored at air quality stations worldwide using instruments which require frequent calibration and are subject to significant chemical interferences (in t ...

  2. Monolithic Semiconductor Light Source with Spectral Controllability

    SBC: AHURA CORPORATION, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Solid-state light sources promise many advantages over traditional technologies. Among these advantages is the ability to construct a source whose relative spectral distribution can be tuned to better match a desired spectrum. We propose addressing this technical and market opportunity through the development of a novel single-chip semiconductor device which delivers high optical output power (>20 ...

  3. Novel 2-D Digital Imaging Detector for Thermal Neutrons

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

    The use of thermal neutrons has been widespread over the past several decades in many investigations such as non-destructive testing (NDT), neutron radiography and macromolecular crystallography. For some applications such as crystallographic diffraction studies, neutrons are scattered over 4o in space and an ideal detector would be able to image the scattered radiation on a spherical surface. Cur ...

  4. Service Management Software for Multi-Modal Interactions

    SBC: Beyond Access Communications            Topic: N/A

    Session Control technology, which tracks, controls, and directs all media sessions. Beyond Access proposes to provide feasibility into not only the core Session Control technology, but also an enabling software platform to connect, discover, and manage complex many-to-many multi-modal interaction sessions.

  5. Robust MEMS Viscosity Meter for Condition-based Maintenance

    SBC: BOSTON MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: N/A

    In this NIST SBIR program Boston MicroSystems develops MEMS-based fluid viscosity-density sensors which can be installed in refrigerant system compressors to monitor, in real time, refrigerant system health. Such sensors will provide early detection of water contamination, lubricant degradation and other problems which can lead to catastrophic refrigerant system failure if left uncorrected. Such s ...

  6. A Photon Counting Fiber Optic Scintillator Dosimeter

    SBC: Boston Science            Topic: N/A

    A Photon Counting Fiber Optic Scintillator Dosimeter will be constructed to extend the range of useful measurements around low energy photon sources. A micromachined plastic scintillator will be bonded to the end of a fiber optic cable. A photon counting detector package will be constructed to receive the light from the scintillator and record the count rate. Neutral density filters will be employ ...

  7. Improved Manufacturing Processes for Circular Array Detectors

    SBC: Detector Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The goal of phase 1 was to create a channel electron multiplier that could be used in an array for configuration in the synchrotron beam application. In order to have little variance in first strike statistics contamination needed to be eliminated from the surface. This was accomplished with phase 1 research. During Phase 2 the primary objective is to manufacture a circular array of multipliers th ...

  8. Large Area Imaging Electron Energy Analyzer

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

    This project is to assess the feasibility of an instrument to provide energy-filtered electron images of a specimen at least 10mm by 10mm in size, operating over a 50-900eV energy range and suitable for NEXAFS chemical imaging. The applicant proposes to demonstrate feasibility by delivering a suitable electron-optical design along with calculated performance characteristics. Knowledge of the exist ...

  9. High Throughput Development of Low-Resistance Contact to p-type GaN by Combinatorial Screening of Surface Dopants

    SBC: Intematix Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Group III-nitrides with their wide bandgap properties are one of most promising materials not only in opto-electronics but also in high power and high temperature electronics. A critical issue in device applications of the nitride materials is the metal ohmic contact, which seriously limits the performance and efficiency of nitride-based devices. Finding suitable low-resistance Ohmic contacts for ...

  10. Fiberoptic Sensors for Thermal Therapy

    SBC: IPITEK, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal addresses the need for accurate, self-referencing temperature measurement in cancer treatments such as hyperthermia and RF ablation. In all of these therapies, conventional metallic sensors such as thermocouples are unattractive because they either interact with the heating field (hyperthermia, RF ablation) or have excessive thermal conductivity (cryoablation). Integrated Photonics T ...
