  1. Infrared Signatures of Liquid-Contaminated Surfaces

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A11aT028

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and its academic partner, the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), will develop and test physics-based models for predicting long wavelength infrared (LWIR, 8 to 12 micro-m) reflectance and emittance spectra of surfaces co

  2. Formalism for Millimeter-wave Modeling of RADAR Cross Sections

    SBC: EMAG TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A12aT002

    In this STTR project, we propose a novel computational technology for analyzing millimeter and submillimeter wave scattering from complex and electromagnetically extended objects and environments. The crux of our formalism lies in a technique for rapidly calculating and coherently adding fields produced by different scatterer constituents, ranging from conducting flat and rough surfaces to penetra ...

  3. Enhanced Charge Transfer in Biological Molecules on Nanostructured Electrode Surfaces

    SBC: Polestar Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A12aT011

    The overall objective of this program is to enhance significantly charge transfer from biological molecules to nanostructured electrode surfaces. To achieve this objective, we plan to use combination of three approaches: 1) Develop an effective means for integrating the biological molecules onto the anode and cathode surfaces of the nanostructured electrodes, 2) Reduce the distance between the act ...

  4. Nondestructive Concrete Characterization System

    SBC: Troxler Electronic Laboratories            Topic: A12aT013

    Currently nuclear-based gauges are the most widely used equipment in the construction industry to measure moisture and density of pavement materials. Such measurements are very accurate, rapid, and non-destructive. Attempts to replace these nuclear methods by non-nuclear methods have shown strong limitations. For this project, we propose to integrate nuclear and seismic technologies to measure t ...

  5. High Performance, Cost Effective, Planar Molecularly Controlled Semiconductor Resistor (MOCSER) Gas Sensors on InAs and InN

    SBC: KYMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A12aT014

    We plan to implement a planar Molecularly Controlled Semiconductor Resistor (MOCSER) gas sensor on both InAs and InN platforms for the ppt-ppm detection of NOx and H2O. Kyma Technologies and Duke University will leverage Duke"s leading MOCSER based NOx sensor technology which uses surface functionalization of InAs with hemin (chloroprotoporphyrin IX iron(III)) to create a strong affinity for NOx. ...

  6. High Performance InAs and InN Semiconductor Gas Sensors

    SBC: STRUCTURED MATERIALS INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: A12aT014

    In this STTR program, Structured Materials Industries, Inc. (SMI) and partners will develop low-cost, planar gas sensors, with high sensitivity and high selectivity. Gas sensors are critical to many existing and emerging applications in defense and homeland security. Present technology gas sensors based on metal oxide films do not have the required sensitivity or selectivity. The technical appr ...

  7. Raman Biosensor for High Throughput Pollen Analysis

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A12aT018

    We propose to develop a device that is capable of rapidly identifying and classifying pollen from a broad sampling base using surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS). The proposed Raman device is designed to spectroscopically examine, identify and classify the spatial and temporal origin of pollen in complex mixtures using an automated high throughput SERS microscope system. The entire system w ...

  8. High Quality, Low Cost, and High Purity AlGaN Epitaxy with Reduced Surface Dislocation Density

    SBC: KYMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A12aT019

    Aluminum Gallium Nitride (AlGaN) has broad dual use applications for power transistors, high frequency transistors, high power Schottky barrier diodes, and solar-blind detectors, as well as ultra-violet laser diodes and ultra-violet light emitting diodes. This unique material system spans the capabilities that lie between Gallium Nitride (GaN) and Aluminum Nitride (AlN), enabling custom tailored p ...

  9. HOVPE Growth of High Quality AlGaN on AlN substrates

    SBC: STRUCTURED MATERIALS INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: A12aT019

    In this STTR program, Structured Materials Industries, Inc. (SMI) along with the Electro Optics Center - Pennsylvania State University will apply its hybrid Hydride Metal-Organic Vapor Phase Epitaxy (HOVPE) based growth methods to produce optimum quality AlxGa1-xN on AlN substrates. The Phase I goal is to convincingly demonstrate the advantages of the HOVPE technique to produce high quality, epita ...

  10. Atomic Layer Deposition of PbZrxTi1-xO3 Thin Films for PiezoMEMS Applications

    SBC: STRUCTURED MATERIALS INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: A12aT020

    In this STTR program, Structured Materials Industries, Inc. (SMI) will develop process technology to deposit uniform films of piezoelectric PbZrxTi1-xO3, on substrates with complex 3-dimensional topography. Piezoelectric PbZrxTi1-xO3 films are a critical technology for advanced Micro Electro Mechanical System (MEMS), to provide low power actuation in nanoscale devices. Our technical approach is ...
