  1. A TUNABLE ROOM TEMPERATURE INFRARED LASER FOR MEASURING ATMOSPHERIC POLLUTANTS

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

    SOLID STATE LASER SOURCES CURRENTLY AVAILABLE FOR MEASURING GREENHOUSE GASES, COMBUSTION PRODUCTS, AND OTHER SPECIES ACROSS THE 3 TO 30 MICRON REGION ARE LEAD SALT DIODE LASERS WHICH OPERATE AT LIQUID NITROGEN TEMPERATURES. PRACTICAL PROBLEMS INCLUDE THE NEED FOR CRYOGENIC COOLING, ERRATIC TUNING BEHAVIOR, AND LIMITED AVAILABILITY OF SINGLE MODE DEVICES IN THIS REGION. THE OPPORTUNITY EXISTS TO ...

  2. A POSITION SENSITIVE NEUTRON DETECTOR USING BORON PHOSPHIDE SEMICONDUCTOR SENSORS

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

    TRADITIONAL POSITION-SENSITIVE NEUTRON DETECTORS USE EITHER GAS FILLED TUBES OR SCINTILLATOR-PHOTOMULTIPLIER TUBE COMBINATIONS. ALTHOUGH BOTH OF THESE TECHNOLOGIES HAVE RESULTED IN SUCCESSFUL POSITION-SENSITIVE NEUTRON DETECTORS,THEY HAVE A VARIETY OF INTRINSIC DEFICIENCIES. THIS PROJECTINVOLVES THE CONSTRUCTION OF NEW POSITION-SENSITIVE NEUTRON DETECTORS FROM SOLID STATE DETECTOR ELEMENTS MADE FR ...

  3. THALLIUM BROMOIODIDE DETECTORS FOR SCINTILLATION SPECTROSCOPY

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

    SCINTILLATION DETECTORS REMAIN THE LEADING TYPE OF DETECTOR IN MANY AREAS OF NUCLEAR PHYSICS. ALTHOUGH IMPROVEMENTS IN SCINTILLATOR CRYSTAL TECHNOLOGY HAVE EXTENDED THE UTILITY OFSCINTILLATOR SYSTEMS, SERIOUS DEFICIENCIES IN THE OPTICAL DETECTORS USED WITH SCINTILLATION CRYSTALS LIMIT THE TECHNOLOGY'S FULL POTENTIAL. CONVENTIONAL SCINTILLATION SYSTEMS USE PHOTOMULTIPLIER TUBES OR SILICON DIODES AS ...

  4. TOMOGRAPHIC AND SPECTROSCOPIC X-RAY DIAGNOSTIC DESIGN FOR THE TARA MAGNETIC MIRROR

    SBC: American Science and Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE TARA TANDEM MAGNETIC MIRROR AT M.I.T. WILL PLAY AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN THE MIRROR FUSION RESEARCH PROGRAM. IT WILL TEST THE EFFICACY OF A MAGNETIC CONFIGURATION WHICH IS DIFFERENT FROM THOSE OF OTHER LEADING MIRROR DEVICES (SUCH AS TMX-U AND MFTF-B), AND IT WILL BE USED FOR STUDYING BASIC PHYSICAL PROCESSES WHICH IT SHARES WITH OTHER TANDEM MIRRORS. IMPORTANT CHARACTERISTICS OF THE ELECTRON AND ...

  5. Batteryless Sensors for Intrusion Detection and Assessment of Threats

    SBC: Anro Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A batteryless and wireless sensor for intrusion detection and assessment of threats which requires no battery, external power or wiring is proposed. These types of sensors derive energy from passing vehicles or persons, and indicate their presence, location, speed, etc., via a self-generated short-range radio signal. These sensors require no maintenance, and can be inconspicuously placed in window ...

  6. MODULAR/TRANSPORTABLE CLASSROOM STRUCTURES

    SBC: Aspen Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT WILL DESIGN AND DEVELOP A NEW BREED OF ENERGY EFFICIENT MODULAR/TRANSPORTABLE CLASSROOMS THAT WILL INCORPORATE DAYLIGHTING, PASSIVE SOLAR TECHNIQUES, NATURAL VENTILATION, AND SOLAR WATER HEATING. THE PRODUCT WILL BE BASED ON INNOVATIVE CONSTRUCTION TECHNIQUES AND TECHNOLOGIES RESULTING IN AN ENERGY EFFICIENT AND PHYSICALLY AND PSYCHOLOGICALLY HEALTHFUL ENVIRONMENT FOR THE STUDENTS AN ...

  7. WELDING FABRICATION, MAINTENANCE, AND REPAIR OF NUCLEAR REACTOR COMPONENTS

    SBC: Automatix, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROGRAM IS TO DEVELOP INNOVATIVE APPROACHES FOR REMOTE MONITORING AND CONTROL OF ARC WELDING--AND POSSIBLY OF OTHER HIGH LUMINOSITY PROCESSES--BYUSING A NOVEL VISION SENSOR THAT INCORPORATES PULSED LASER ILLUMINATION AND SYNCHRONIZED IMAGE SENSING TO SUPPRESS THE WELDING ARC IN THE VIDEO IMAGE; APPROPRIATE VISION PROCESSING TECHNIQUES THAT ENHANCE THE IMAGE, DETECT IMPORTANT ...

  8. AN INTERANODE FAULT PROTECTION DEVICE FOR MAGNETOHYDRODYNAMIC CHANNELS

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    INTERANODE ARCING IS ONE OF THE MOST FREQUENT AND DANGEROUS FAULTS IN A MAGNETOHYDRODYNAMIC (MHD) CHANNEL. IT REDUCES CHANNEL RELIABILITY AND LIMITS GENERATOR LIFETIME. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS WORK IS TO ELIMINATE INTERANODE ARCING. WHEN AN INTERANODE VOLTAGE EXCEEDS APPROXIMATELY 50 TO 60 V,ARCING IS LIKELY TO OCCUR. THIS ARC IS DRIVEN BY THE LORENTZ FORCE INTO THE INTERANODE SPACE, WHERE IT CUTS T ...

  9. MAGNETIC BIOSORBENTS FOR CLOSED-CYCLE DECONTAMINATION SYSTEM

    SBC: Cape Cod Research            Topic: N/A

    THE TECHNOLOGY FOR CLEANING RADIOACTIVELY CONTAMINATED SURFACES NEEDS IMPROVEMENT TO MAKE IT MORE COST EFFECTIVE. AT PRESENT, THE COSTS FOR DECOMMISSIONING NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS, IN SOME CASES, EXCEED THE CONSTRUCTION COSTS. THIS RESEARCH INVESTIGATES A NEW, INEXPENSIVE PROCESS FOR CLEANING RADIOACTIVE SURFACES. THE PROPOSED APPROACH IS TO INVESTIGATE THE POTENTIAL OF USING MICROSCOPIC MAGNETIC BIO ...

  10. LASER DIAGNOSTICS TO MEASURE GAS CONCENTRATION AND SPECIES CONCENTRATION WITHIN LARGE COMMERCIAL BOILERS

    SBC: Computer Genetics Corp.            Topic: N/A

    FOR LARGE FURNACES THE ABILITY TO REMOTELY MEASURE IN-SITU TEMPERATURE AND CONCENTRATION OF GAS SPECIES WOULD PROVIDE A WEALTH OF HERETOFORE UNKNOWN INFORMATION TO BOILER DESIGNERS AND INDUSTRIAL OPERATORS. THIS WOULD RESULT IN MORE EFFICIENT BOILER DESIGNS, MORE COMPLETE COMBUSTION IN EXISTING INSTALLATIONS, GREATER FUEL FLEXIBILITY, AND A REDUCTION IN EMISSIONS. COHERENT ANTI-STOKES RAMAN SPECTR ...
