  1. DRY ELECTROSTATIC CONCENTRATION OF FROZEN AQUEOUS MIXTURES

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

    RESEARCH ON A NOVEL MEANS OF PROCESSING FROZEN AQUEOUS BASED FOODS AND BEVERAGES, BASED ON ADVANCED ENERGY DYNAMIC'S STATE OF THE ART EXPERIENCE IN DRY ELECTROSTATIC SEPARATION, IS PROPOSED TO CONCENTRATE ORANGE JUICE AND A WIDE VARIETY OF OTHER JUICES AND FOODS. THE PROCESS IS BASED ON THE DIFFERENCE IN WORK FUNCTION OF ICE CRYSTALS COMPARED TO GLUCOSE AND OTHER JUICE CONSTITUENTS. IT REPRESENTS ...

  2. "A NEW INSTRUMENT FOR THE CHARACTERIZATION OF FOSSIL ENERGY RESOURCES"

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

    MANY IMPORTANT PROBLEMS IN CHARACTERIZING MATERIALS IN THE EARTH'S LITHOSPHERE INVOLVE DETERMINING BOTH ORGANIC AND INORGANIC CONSTITUENTS. RECENT PROGRESS HAS BEEN MADE IN THE USE OF THERMAL ANALYSIS IN WHICH THE SAMPLE IS TAKEN THROUGH A TEMPERATURE EXCURSION AND ITS WEIGHT LOSS OR EVOLVED PRODUCTS ARE MONITORED. WHILE THESE TECHNIQUES HAVEPROVIDED IMPORTANT CHARACTERISTICS OF THE ORGANIC MATERI ...

  3. "DESIGN OF THE SYSTEM ARCHITECTURE FOR A CHEMICAL ENGINEERING WORKSTATION"

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

    DUE TO THE COMPLEXITY OF THE CALCULATIONS AND THE LACK OF EFFECTIVE STANDARDS, CHEMICAL ENGINEERS AND CHEMISTS HAVE BEEN LEFT BEHIND THEIR MECHANICAL AND ELECTRONIC COUNTERPARTS IN HAVING THE BENEFITS OF A COMPUTER WORKSTATION ADDRESSED TO THEIR REQUIREMENTS. A NEED EXISTS FOR THE MEANS TO INTEGRATE EXISTING AND NEW APPLICATIONS THROUGH A COMMON DATABASE, TO PROVIDE AN EFFECTIVE USER INTERFACE AND ...

  4. EVALUATION OF THE NEUTRAL XENON LASER FOR INFRARED MEASUREMENT OF NITROUS OXIDE FROM COMBUSTION SOURCES

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

    NITROUS OXIDE IS AN IMPORTANT TRACE ATMOSPHERIC SPECIES WHICH PLAYS A KEY ROLE IN THE ATMOSPHERIC GREENHOUSE PROBLEM AS WELL AS THE DESTRUCTION OF STRATOSPHERIC OZONE. ITS CONCENTRATION IN THE ATMOSPHERE IS RISING DUE TO ANTHROPOGENIC SOURCES RELATED TO AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTIVITY AND THE BURNING OF COAL AND HEAVY FUEL OIL. THIS PROPOSAL WOULD EVALUATE AND DEVELOP A NEW, RELIABLE, COST EFFECTIVE, RU ...

  5. ATMOSPHERIC TRACE GAS FLUX METER USING TUNABLE DIODE LASERS

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

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1988 National Science Foundation
  6. LISP ACCELERATOR FOR NUMERIC AND SYMBOLIC PROCESSING

    SBC: Airex Corpon            Topic: N/A

    A HARDWARE LISP ACCELERATOR IS PROPOSED, FOR SOLVING THE REQUIREMENT TO DO BOTH NUMERIC AND SYMBOLIC PROCESSING IN THE SAME COMPUTER SYSTEM. THE NEED IS PARTICULARLY ACUTE WITH REAL TIME SYSTEMS, SUCH AS EXPERT SYSTEMS FOR PILOT AIDING, WHERE VAST AMOUNTS OF NUMERIC DATA MUST BE PROCESSED, WHILE MULTIPLE EXPERT SYSTEMS OPERATE SIMULTANEOUSLY IN REAL TIME. CONVENTIONAL NUMERIC COMPUTER SYSTEMS INCU ...

  7. CONTROLLED POLYTYPISM IN A VARIABLE BANDGAP SEMICONDUCTOR

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

    LEAD IODIDE (PBI2) IS A LAYERED SEMICONDUCTOR COMPOUND THAT POSSESSES A NUMBER OF STRUCTURAL MODIFICATIONS KNOWN AS POLYTYPES. THE FORMATION OF THESE STRUCTURES IS KNOWN TO BE CAUSED BY IMPURITIES. RECENTLY METHODS FOR GROWING THIS MATERIAL IN VERY HIGH PURITY FORM HAVE BEEN REPORTED IN THE LITERATURE USING METHODS SIMILAR TO THOSE USED BY RADIATION MONITORING DEVICES, INC. TO PRODUCE CDTE FOR COM ...

    SBIR Phase II 1988 National Science Foundation
  8. HIGH TEMPERATURE SEMICONDUCTOR SENSOR FOR BORE HOLE LOGGING

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

    FOR MANY YEARS, NUCLEAR MEASUREMENT TECHNIQUES HAVE BEEN AN IMPORTANT ASPECT OF DOWNHOLE GEOLOGICAL BORE HOLE LOGGING. APPROCHES RANGE FROM GAMMA RAY BACKSCATTER USED FOR GAUGING DENSITY TO NEUTRON ACTIVATION ANALYSIS TO DETERMINE COMPOSITION. THE CONDITIONS WHICH SEVERLY LIMIT THE PERFORMANCE OF THESE DETECTORS ARE: 1) THE VERY SMALL SPACE AVAILABLE FOR THE INSTRUMENTATION DOWN IN A BORE HOLE AND ...

  9. LEAD IODIDE SEMICONDUCTOR FOR NUCLEAR SENSOR

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

    LEAD IODIDE (PBI2) IS A LITTLE USED COMPOUND SEMICONDUCTOR THE HIGH ATOMIC NUMBERS OF ITS CONSTITUENT ELEMENTS GIVES ITEXTRAORDINARY PHOTOELECTRIC ABSORPTION EFFICIENCY OFOR GAMMAPHOTONS, WHILE ITS 2.5 EV BANDGAP PROMISES PERFORMANCE AT TEMPERATURES UP TO 250 DEGREES C. IT HAS SHOWN SOME PROM- ISE AS A HIGH EFFICIENCY SOLID-STATE DETECTOR, BUT EARLY DEVICES WERE LIMITED BY MATERIAL IMPURITIES AND ...
