  1. 3-D Materials Characterization Using Structured Illumination in the SEM

    SBC: Advanced Microscopy Techniques            Topic: N/A

    Microscopic measurement of surface topography is a continuing need in microfabrication technology and materials research. The aim of this research is to adapt the scanning electron microscope (SEM) to the quantitative measurement of a wide range of surface structures. The SEM is a widely used measurement tool in materials science and semiconductor fabrication. The SEM's strength is that it prov ...

  2. A Calorimeter for the Nondestructive Assay of Tritium-Contaminated Samples

    SBC: SCIENCE RESEARCH LABORATORY, INC            Topic: N/A

    Tritium is handled routinely at laboratories in the United States, Canada, Japan, and Europe. There are several applications for nondestructive assay of solid tritium-contaminated samples including environmental clean-up, routine assay of tritium handling equipment, assay of fuel elements used by fusion reactors including the proposed ITER reactor, and routine monitoring of fission reactor core m ...

  4. A Category-theoretic Tool for Manufacturing Information Integration

    SBC: CATEGORICAL INFORMATICS, INC.            Topic: 90101

    Category theory has recently been successfully applied to translate information from one computer system to another. Researchers at MIT have developed a prototype software tool based on category theory for solving information-integration programs. The tool has successfully solved small-scale information-integration problems including a problem identified by NIST about enriching the manufacturing s ...

  5. A Coded Alternating Micromachined Retroreflector Array (CAMERA)

    SBC: RESEARCH SUPPORT INSTRUMENTS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    RSI will develop a technology to improve fire fighter visibility and enable tracking of position/identity. The Coded Alternating Micromachined Retroreflector Array (CAMERA) will use RSI's microscale retroreflectors, a near-infrared (IR) coating and near-IR sources pulsing on alternating video frames to encode fire fighter identities, and a near-IR video camera. These grain-of-sand-sized markers wo ...

  7. A Direct Absorption Spectrometer for Low Drift and High Accuracy Measurements of Methane Isot

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 833

    Atmospheric methane (CH4) is a potent greenhouse gas and ozone precursor that is increasingly important in our understanding and modeling of climate change. Identifying and differentiating methane sources are crucial to any strategies aimed at reducing CH4 emissions. Isotopic composition and ethane content are both dependent upon methane origin, making them valuable diagnostics for source attr ...

  8. A Dynamical Instrument for Machining Centers

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    In the program, we will develop a measurement system based on the dynamics of the machining process. This system will use the variation in the forces or accelerations occurring during machining to characterize the mechanisms occurring between the cutter and workpiece. This will provide real time indications of the finish of the surface that is being created, the proximity to the chatter threshol ...

  9. A Fully Integrated Commercial Multi-sample Multi-Slit Rheometer

    SBC: CAMBRIDGE POLYMER GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Proposed here is the continued development of an innovative rheometer configuration design at NIST. It describes the determination of suitable detection, drive, control, software and assembly designs for a commercially viable, fully integrated device. The initial efforts will concentrate on examining the sub-systems of the design. An important feature of the proposed strategy is early commercial i ...

  10. A High Resolution Airborne Atmospheic Boundary Layer and Surface Wind Field Imager for the NOAA WP-3D Aircraft

    SBC: REMOTE SENSING SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: 8316

    Accurate, high resolution, continuous monitoring of the lower atmospheric boundary layer (ABL) and ocean surface wind fields within tropical cyclones is required to improve intensity forecasting. This proposed Phase II effort will build on the Phase I project successes to realize an operational airborne imaging Doppler radar (AWRAP) capable of providing these winds with up to 15-meter vertical re ...
