  1. Large Area Time-of-Flight Detectors for Imaging Science

    SBC: NOVA SCIENTIFIC INCORPORATED            Topic: 17b

    NOVA Scientific, Inc. proposes a Phase I SBIR program to develop, refine, and ultimately to commercialize, a large format 15 cm x 15 cm solid-state cold, thermal, and epithermal neutron imaging detector based on microchannel plates (MCPs). The imaging detector will be fabricated in a self-contained, hermetically sealed image tube, which does not require active vacuum pumping. This large area time- ...

  2. Large-area Radiation-hard Synchrotron X-ray Detectors

    SBC: CAPESYM, INC            Topic: 14a

    Modern synchrotron-based X-ray imaging techniques, such as coherent X-ray diffraction imaging and phase contrast imaging require high beam coherence and highly penetrating X-rays. The new generation of synchrotrons achieve enhanced coherence at beam energies greater than 30-50keV. These new prospects for non-destructive imaging require high spatial resolution and efficient large area detectors. Cu ...

  3. High-Accuracy Angle Generator for Angular Calibration

    SBC: Raytum Photonics LLC            Topic: 12a

    Characterization and metrology (measurement) of super polished x-ray mirrors are extremely critical for the next generation x-ray free electron laser light sources. Currently, DOE light source facilities such as Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) in the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) solely rely on foreign resources to do the characterization and measurement based on the technology deve ...

  4. Direct Write Fabrication of Low Cost Flexible Particle Detector Substrates

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: 29d

    High energy physics research has motivated the development of high-performance detectors to enable advances in experimentation. Many detectors are often large area, flexible panels capable of resolving particle/photon location with mm resolution. The specific requirements of a given experimental setup will dictate the unique configuration of the readout layer. Given the wide range of high energy p ...

  5. Low-Temperature Growth of Cadmium Telluride (CdTe) Semiconductors on ASIC

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 14a

    Recent advances in synchrotron radiation sources have dramatically increased their brightness, resulting in ultra-high photon fluence with beam size approaching nanometers. Their high brilliance and coherence have enabled experiments with unprecedented resolution that were previously impossible. However, in order to truly benefit from these techniques, detectors for hard X-ray with energies >30 ke ...

  6. Distortion Free Large-Area Detector for Neutron Scattering

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 17b

    Single crystal diffractometers which require large solid angle coverage for optimum performance typically have large gaps in detector coverage. These regions, which can be a significant fraction of the detectors active area, result in a performance that suffers from degraded resolution, distortion and gamma rejection. This effect is due in large part to the nature of the flat sensor surface that r ...

  7. Hybridized High-Z Pixel Detector

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 14a

    Coherent diffraction imaging (CDI) is a revolutionary method of studying micro- and nano-scale materials but it is a time consuming experimental technique that requires valuable synchrotron beam access. This becomes further exasperated when studying materials or structures that require use of higher energy synchrotron x-rays. Given the scarcity of data that high energy testing produces, it is impe ...

  8. Superconducting Bolometer for Neutrino Research

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 31c

    One of the high priority areas of nuclear physics research is to further elucidate the properties of the neutrino. Presently, the absolute neutrino mass scale remains of the most elusive yet unanswered questions regarding the fundamental properties of neutrinos. Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc. (RMD), in collaboration with Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), has recently begun to develo ...

  9. Enhanced Precision in Geothermal Reservoir Characterization and Exploitation

    SBC: Introspective Systems, LLC            Topic: 21a

    A seminal report by MIT estimated that Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS) could provide 100 GW of cost competitive base-load capacity by 2050. Successful integration of this renewable power source and the offsetting of fossil fuels (mainly coal) could reduce 401 million metric tons of carbon dioxide and decrease the US total CO2 emissions by 6.1%. The development of this geothermal resources presen ...

  10. Novel Probe of Oxygen and its Isotopes for Millimeter-Scale Measurements of Soil Dynamics

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 24a

    One of the major challenges facing the world is the creation of sustainable energy sources. Biofuels and bioproducts have great potential. But the development of sustainable and efficient agricultural production methods requires deep understanding of the dynamics of plant-microbe-mineral interactions within the rhizosphere. Technologies that probe soil microbial activity in real time with high spa ...
