  1. Optical Instrumentation for MEMS Oscillatory Parallel-Plate Rheometer

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: 9060563R

    Leveraging Agiltron’s industrial leading developments for optical measurement of motion in MEMS devices, we propose to use electro-optical sensors for measuring the displacement and gap in the NIST micro-rheometer. No electrical connections are required to the moving parts. All electronics and optics are removed from the chip so that it is inexpensive and disposable. A fixed, simple micro-fluidi ...

  2. 3D Tip Characterization and Surface Reconstruction

    SBC: Nanometrology International, Inc.            Topic: 9070168TT

    Nanometrology International, Inc. (NMI) proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of 3-dimensional (3D) characterization of nanoscale objects using scanning probe microscopy (SPM) with a measurement uncertainty of less than 0.7 nm. To accomplish this task, we propose a novel method of 3D tip characterization and use of an innovative surface reconstruction algorithm recently introduced by NIST and th ...

  3. High Speed and High Sensitivity Quadrant Photodetector

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 912085R

    To further advance the characterization and utility of microcantilevers, next generation optical detectors with higher frequency response, improved displacement resolution and lower noise for weak signal detection are needed. Consequently, Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc. (RMD) will develop a turnkey optical detector module for use in characterizing the displacement and resonant frequencies of m ...

  4. Analysis of New WWVB Modulation Schemes for Future Broadcast

    SBC: XW, LLC dba Xtendwave            Topic: N/A

    This Phase 2 project targets the completion of the development of an improved system for the broadcasting of the WWVB signal, as a direct continuation of the Phase 1 project, which successfully validated the proposed approach through a feasibility study and analyses. Objectives of this project include the design of the new modulation scheme and protocol, the development of a new time-code generato ...

  5. Tailorable Accurate Blood Simulant (TABS)

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: OSD10H01

    Many blood simulants that are currently available for medical training to teach and practice hemorrhage-handling skills lack the ability approximate real blood in many aspects. In order to provide the best training, the blood simulant needs to mimic the

  6. Nano-Structured Spatiotemporally Controlled Delivery System that Promotes Functional Tissue Regeneration

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: OSD10H03

    There is a substantial clinical need for regenerative therapies that effectively restore function to damaged tissues. For many tissues, autograft remains the clinical standard despite the limited volume available, associated patient morbidity and the resu

  7. Technologies for Treating Cartilage Tissue Loss Following Traumatic Injury

    SBC: Spheringenics, Inc.            Topic: OSD10H04

    Regeneration of cartilage and cartilage repair are challenging due to limited cellularity of the tissue and the failure of allografts and tissue engineered cartilage constructs to integrate with host tissue. To overcome this limitation, many surgeons are

  8. Deployable Remotely Enabled Analgesia Management System

    SBC: Etiometry Inc.            Topic: OSD10H05

    Sterling Point Research has assembled an interdisciplinary team composed of researchers from Children"s Hospital Boston and Boston University, an anesthesiologist, and a former U.S. Army medic to develop a Deployable Remotely Enabled Analgesia Management

  9. Haptics for Medical Simulation (HAMS)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: OSD10H06

    Minimally invasive surgery (MIS), including laparoscopic surgery (LS), is beneficial in terms of the improved recovery of the patient, including shorter convalescence times, less postoperative pain, and less scarring. Training surgeons in these new techni

  10. THEO: Tactile and Haptics Enabled Open Surgery Simulator

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: OSD10H06

    The field of surgical simulation is fairly crowded with many products and research groups developing physical and virtual simulators. Much of this previous work is in simulating minimally invasive surgeries. The considerable body of work generated in de
