  4. Intelligent Molecular Model Kit and Software Suite for Improving High School Chemistry Instruction and Student Achievement

    SBC: MolySym, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Model perception and understanding the spatial structure of organic molecules have historically been a source of difficulty for high school chemistry students. The classic ball-and-stick model, developed in 1865, is still used today to convey the fundamental characteristics of a molecular system. This model is an inadequate representation of a dynamic system, which fails to accurately represent ...

  5. The First 4,000 Words: Keys to Schools Success

    SBC: Seward Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    The First 4,000 Words project will develop and test a multimedia system for ensuring that students in Grades 1-4 know the meanings of the 4,000 most frequently used English words when they hear them and see them in print and can pronounce them. The target population is English language learners, struggling readers, or children of poverty who have small vocabularies relative to their peers.

  6. A Modular, Skid-Mounted Biomass Pyrolysis Unit

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: 01

    Political, economic, and environmental considerations require that the national dependence on petroleum-based transportation fuels, especially imported oil, be reduced by accelerating the development of domestic renewable alternatives. The United States has the potential to generate, sustainably, about 1.3 billion dry tons of biomass per year, and bio-oil derived from this renewable feedstock cou ...

  7. Development of Aircraft Borne 13CH4 Analyzer Using a Continuous Wave Quantum Cascade Infrared Laser Spectrometer

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 47

    Methane is the second most important atmospheric greenhouse gas after CO2, yet its global sources and sinks are still inadequately characterized. Recent observations that industrial plants may account for a substantial fraction of atmospheric methane have lead to an increased emphasis on studies of ecosystem CH4 fluxes, with particular interest in using isotopic composition to identify specific p ...

  8. Aerosol Mass Spectrometry via Laser-Induced Incandescence Particle Vaporization

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 50

    Aerosol particles have important impacts on visibility, acid deposition, climate, and human health. A large fraction of the anthropogenic aerosol is generated from energy-related activities, and carbonaceous species are known to constitute a significant fraction of ambient aerosol mass in many locations. In particular, black carbon (BC), formed in combustion processes, is believed to have a stro ...

  9. 5V, High Gain, High Sensitivity Photomultiplier Detector

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: 26a

    This project will demonstrate a breakthrough detector for the readout of scintillators used for gamma ray detection in Nuclear Physics experiments. The new detector: (1) will overcome the quantum efficiency and high voltage limits of current photomultipliers (PMTs) and Avalanche Photodiodes (APDs); (2) will offer the possibility of improving scintillator detector resolution at least by a factor ...

    STTR Phase I 2007 Department of Energy
  10. High Performance X-Ray Detectors

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 14

    X-ray detector arrays with high energy resolution, high sensitivity, and high count rate are required for synchrotron beamline studies. In many studies conducted with synchrotron beamlines, the characteristics of available X-ray detectors limit overall system performance. This project will investigate a novel, low capacitance design for high purity silicon detector arrays, which offers high-ener ...
