  1. INDIVIDUALIZED INTERACTIVE VIDEO

    SBC: Duffy Engineering            Topic: N/A

    PROVIDING INDIVIDUALIZED INSTRUCTION FOR DISABLED STUDENTS IN SPECIAL EDUCATION PLACEMENTS IS A TIME-CONSUMING PROCESS FOR EDUCATORS AND THUS COSTLY. COMPUTERIZED AND INTERACTIVEVIDEODISK EDUCATIONAL FORMATS MAY NOT BE READILY CUSTOMIZED FOR THE INDIVIDUAL STUDENT. HOWEVER, COMMONLY-AVAILABLE IN PERSONAL COMPUTERS AND HAND-HELD CAMCORDERS ARE TOOLS AVAIL ABLE IN MOST SCHOOLS. IF A PERSONAL COMPUTE ...

  2. EDUCATING INFORMED CONSUMERS: A NATIONAL SURVEY OF FAMILIESKNOWLEDGE CONCERNING RESPITE SERVICES

    SBC: Human Services Res Inst            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT IS BASED ON THE PREMISE THAT PRIMARY CARE- GIVERS SHOULD PLAY A MAJOR ROLE IN DESIGNING, MANAGING, AND MONITORING SERVICES WHICH SUPPORT CHILDREN WITH DISABILITIESAND THEIR FAMILIES. RESPITE SERVICES OFFERS BUT ONE FORUM FROM WHICH THEY CAN EXERCISE THESE ROLES. THROUGH THE USE OF AN ADVISORY BOARD, MADE UP LARGELY OF PRIMARY CARE GIVERSAND A NATIONAL SURVEY THIS PROJECT SEEKS TO DETE ...

  3. ON-LINE PURIFIERS FOR CHEMICAL VAPOR DEPOSITION

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    THE MATERIALS USED IN THIN-FILM PHOTOVOLTAIC CELLS AND MANY OTHER SEMICONDUCTOR DEVICES ARE FREQUENTLY GROWN USING CHEMICAL VAPOR DEPOSITION (CVD) OR OTHER VAPOR-BASED PROCESSES. MANY OF THE PROCESS GASES USED, FOR EXAMPLE, ARSINE, PHOSPHINE, AMMONIA, DIBORANE, AND SILANE, ARE HIGHLY REACTIVE. CONTAMINATION, CHEMICAL OR PARTICULATE, OF THESE REACTIVE GASES SERIOUSLY INTERFERES WITH DEVICE PERFORMA ...

  4. COUNTERCURRENT OPEN GRADIENT MAGNETIC SEPARATION OF PYRITE FROM COAL

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

    THIS RESEARCH PROJECT WILL DEMONSTRATE THE TECHNICAL AND ECONOMIC FEASIBILITY OF A MAGNETIC SEPARATOR FOR OPERATION ON PULVERIZED COAL. A THEORETICAL COMPARISON OF THE SEPARATOR WITH WORK PUBLISHED ON OPEN GRADIENT MAGNETIC SEPARATION BY THE OAK RIDGE NATIONAL LABORATORY INDICATES THAT THE SEPARATOR WILL HAVE HIGH LEVELS OF ASH CLEANING. THIS IS BECAUSE OF ITS COUNTERCURRENT PRINCIPLE OF OPERATION ...

  5. INFRARED DETECTORS USING HIGH CRITICAL TEMPERATURE GRANULAR JOSEPHSON JUNCTIONS

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE RECENT DISCOVERY OF HIGH TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTING MATERIALS HAS LED TO RENEWED INTEREST IN THE APPLICATION OF SUPERCONDUCTIVITY. THE NEW CERAMIC SUPERCONDUCTORS OFFER THE OPPORTUNITY OF USING THESE MATERIALS AS DETECTORS OF INFRARED RADIATION MORE CONVENIENTLY THAT THE OLDER, CLASSICAL SUPERCONDUCTORS. THE LARGER ENERGY GAP OF THESE NEW HIGH CRITICAL TEMPERATURE (T(C)) MATERIALS ALSO PROVID ...

  6. ADVANCED COAL LIQUEFACTION BY TEMPERATURE STAGED REACTORS

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    IT HAS BEEN DETERMINED IN BENCH SCALE AND PILOT SCALE COAL LIQUEFACTION EXPERIMENTS THAT A PRETREATMENT AT MODERATE TEMPERATURES PRIOR TO LIQUEFACTION CAN SUBSTANTIALLY IMPROVELIQUEFACTION YIELDS AND QUALITY. HOWEVER, THERE IS LITTLE BASIC UNDERSTANDING OF THE PROCESSES THAT GIVE RISE TO THE OBSERVED PHENOMENA. THIS PROJECT SUGGESTS THE IDENTIFICATION AND OPTIMIZATION OF THE PRELIQUEFACTION CHEMIS ...

  8. AN OPTICAL IMPULSE GENERATOR

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

    THERE IS A NEED FOR AN INEXPENSIVE, COMPACT, LOW MAINTENANCE SUB-PICOSECOND OPTICAL PULSE SOURCE TO DRIVE AN OPTICALLY SAMPLED AND TRIGGERED OSCILLOSCOPE. ADEQUATE LASER SOURCES PRESENTLY OCCUPY TEN SQUARE FEET AND REQUIRE REGULAR MAINTENANCE, 20 KW OF ELECTRICITY, AND COOLING WATER; AND THEY COMPRISE THE MAIN COST ITEM IN THE PICOSECOND OSCILLOSCOPE. THE NEW PULSED LASER UNDER DEVELOPMENT IN THIS ...

  9. A DIODE LASER-BASED DIRECT GRADIENT SENSOR FOR MONITORING ATMOSPHERIC DRY DEPOSITION

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

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1988 Department of Energy
  10. A REAL-TIME IMAGING SYSTEM FOR ENHANCING DNA HYBRIDIZATION TECHNOLOGIES

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

    ONE OF THE MOST ACTIVE AND CHALLENGING FIELDS IN MOLECULAR BIOLOGY TODAY IS THE GENETIC STUDY OF EUKARYOTIC SYSTEMS. THE PRELIMINARY, BUT OFTEN RATE LIMITING, STEPS IN THIS AREA ARE THE DNA TRANSFER/HYBRIDIZATION TECHNOLOGIES ASSOCIATED WITH GENE MAPPING, AND THE SCREENING OF DNA LIBRARIES FOR GENE ISOLATION. THESE PROCEDURES USE RADIOLABELED HYBRIDIZATION TECHNIQUES AND AUTORADIOGRAPHY TO ACHIEVE ...
