  1. A NOVEL CORRELATION FLUX METER FOR METHANE

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

    AERODYNE'S SPECTRAL CORRELATOR TECHNOLOGY WILL BE ADAPTED TODETECTION OF METHANE IN ITS 3.3 UM VIBRATIONAL MODE. THE RESULTING FAST (10 HZ), ACCURATE (BETTER THAN 3% OF AMBIENT)INFRARED METHANE DETECTOR WILL BE DESIGNED (PHASE I), RUGGEDIZED AND OPTIMIZED FOR FIELD USE (PHASE II). WHEN COUPLED TO AND CORELATED WITH SONIC ANEMOMETER MEASUREMENTS OF TURBULENT EDDY VELOCITY FLUCTUATIONS, THE SPECTRAL ...

  2. A CARBON-13 ISOTOPE ANALYZER

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

    ISOTOPIC CARBON ANALYSIS PROVIDES A VALUABLE TOOL FOR STUDIES OF METABOLIC PATHWAYS AND FOR TRACING CARBON TRANSFORMATIONS IN THE ENVIRONMENT. THIS PROPOSAL WOULD DEVELOP AN OPTICAL TECHNIQUE FOR THE CONVENIENT MEASUREMENT OF CARBON ISOTOPIC ((13)C/(12)C) RATIOS. THE INSTRUMENT WILL UTILIZE A LINEAR PHOTODIODE ARRAY TO IMAGE THE SPECTRA ARISING FROM PLASMA EMISSION OF THE CARBON-CONTAINING MOLECUL ...

  3. AUTOMATIC CONTROL OF INTERFACE BOUNDARIES IN VERTICAL FREEZEPRODUCTION PROCESSES

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

    A KEY CONSIDERATION IN A VARIETY OF MANUFACTURING PROCESSES IS CONTROLLING EITHER THE POSITION OR SHAPE OF AN INTERFACE DEFINED AS THE BOUNDARY BETWEEN LIQUID AND SOLID MATERIALS OF DISSIMILAR COMPOSITION OR DENSITY TO WITHIN CERTAIN ALLOWABLE TOLERANCES. EXAMPLES OF SUCH DIVERSE PROCESSES ARE VERTICAL FREEZE BRIDGMAN AND CZOCHRALSKI CRYSTAL GROWTH AND ELECTROSLAG REMELTING FOR METAL REFINEMENT. A ...

  4. TUNABLE BIREFRINGENT FILTERS USING LIQUID CRYSTAL ELEMENTS

    SBC: CAMBRIDGE RESEARCH AND INSTRUMENTATION            Topic: N/A

    RECENT ADVANCES IN LIQUID CRYSTAL TECHNOLOGY MAKE IT POSSIBLE TO CONSTRUCT TUNABLE BIREFRINGENT FILTERS OPERATINGOVER THE RANGE 3,500-20,000 ANGSTROMS, WITH PASSBANDS AS NARROW AS 50 ANGSTROMS. THE CENTER WAVE-LENGTH OF THIS FILTER CAN BE SELECTED ELECTRONICALLY, IN A FEW MILLISECONDS, WITH NO MOVING PARTS. THESE FILTERS SHOULD BERELATIVELY INEXPENSIVE TO PRODUCE ($1K-2K). THE RESEARCHERSPROPOSE D ...

  5. ELECTROCHEMICAL OXIDATION OF REFRACTORY ORGANICS

    SBC: Cape Cod Research            Topic: N/A

    MANY ORGANIC POLLUTANTS AND BIOLOGICAL ORGANISMS ARE NOT EFFECTIVELY REMOVED BY BIOLOGICAL OXIDATION IN MUNICIPAL WASTE TREATMENT FACILITIES OR IN NATURAL WATER COURSES. THESE REFRACTORY ORGANICS, AFTER CHLORINATION, MAY FORM NOXIOUS CHLORINATED ORGANICS AND CAUSE GENERAL DETERIORATIONOF THE WATER SUPPLY. THIS PROPOSAL ADDRESSES THE FEASIBILITY OF ADSORBING AND ELECTROCHEMICALLY OXIDIZING THESE RE ...

  6. SUPEROXIDATIVE DEGRADATION OF CHLORINATED ORGANIC POLLUTANTS

    SBC: Cape Cod Research            Topic: N/A

    THE EFFICIENT AND RAPID DECHLORINATION OF ORGANIC COMPOUNDS IN WASTEWATER STREAMS IS A PERSISTENT PROBLEM. THE MICROORGANISMS IN TYPICAL BIOLOGICAL OXIDATION SYSTEMS WILL CONSUME SUCH COMPOUNDS ONLY VERY SLOWLY, IF AT ALL. THIS PROPOSAL ADDRESSES THE FEASIBILITY OF USING ELECTROCHEMICALLY GENERATED SUPEROXIDE TO RAPIDLY DECHLORINATE RECALCITRANT ORGANIC COMPOUNDS. A NOVEL, COMPACT ELECTROCATALYTIC ...

  7. SUPPORTED LIQUID MEMBRANE SEPARATORS FOR THE ELECTROWINNING OF METALS

    SBC: CASTLE TECHNOLOGY CORP.            Topic: N/A

    ELECTROWINNING IS A PRIME METHOD FOR THE RECOVERY OF METALS FROM HYDROMETALLURGICAL OPERATIONS. IN MANY CASES THE ABILITY OF ELECTROWINNING IS LIMITED BY THE LACK OF HIGHLY SPECIFIC, LOW RESISTANCE SEPARATORS TO ISOLATE THE ANODIC AND CATHODIC PROCESSES. WE PROPOSE TO APPLY THE SUPPORTED LIQUID MEMBRANE (SLM) SEPARATOR CONCEPT, DEVELOPED BY CASTLE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION FOR USE IN BATTERIES, TO TH ...

  8. SOIL DECONTAMINATION USING ELECTROCHEMISTRY

    SBC: ECO ENERGY CONVERSION            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THE PROPOSED PROGRAM IS TO INVESTIGATE THE TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY OF APPLYING AN ELECTROCHEMICAL PROCESS TO THE IN SITU DEHALOGENATION OF HAZARDOUS WASTES FOUND IN LANDFILLS AND IN SOILS CONTAMINATED BY LEAKS OR SPILLS. PRELIMINARY WORK BY TRACER HAS SHOWN THAT AN ELECTROCHEMICAL PROCESS CAN BE USED EFFECTIVELY IN DEHALOGENATING HAZARDOUS WASTES SUCH AS PCBS. IN THE PROPOSED PHASE ...

  9. ARTIFICIAL NEURAL SYSTEM FOR REAL-TIME FLOW CYTOMETRY ANALYSIS IN OCEAN RESEARCH

    SBC: Ktaadn Inc.            Topic: N/A

    RESEARCH IN PARALLEL PROCESSING ARCHITECTURES BASED ON KTAADN, INC.'S EXPERTISE IN ARTIFICIAL NEURAL NETWORKS IS PROPOSED TO ANSWER THE NEEDS OF THE COMMUNITY OF RESEARCHERSUSING OCEAN-GOING FLOW CYTOMETRY. FLOW CYTOMETRY, WIDELY USED IN MEDICAL RESEARCH AND DIAGNOSIS, HAS REVOLUTIONIZED OCEAN MICROBIOLOGICAL RESEARCH SINCE ITS INTRODUCTION, AND CHANGED DRAMATICALLY OUR UNDERSTANDING OF THE INTERP ...

  10. BUSLESS PARALLEL COMPUTER MEMORY ACCESSING SCHEME

    SBC: Mram Inc            Topic: N/A

    RESEARCH ON A NOVEL PARALLEL COMPUTER MEMORY ACCESSING SCHEME IS PROPOSED IN ANSWER TO THE COMPUTER INDUSTRIES DRASTIC NEED FOR AN ACCESSING MECHANISM WHICH ALLOWS AN UNLIMITED NUMBER OF PROCESSORS TO SIMULTANEOUSLY READ AND WRITE TO A CENTRAL MEMORY IN FRACTIONS OF A MICROSECOND PER CYCLE. THE PROPOSED SYSTEM CONSISTS OF A BUSLESS PARALLEL ARCHITECTURE WHICH WILL ALLOW SIMULTANEOUS PARALLEL COMMU ...
