  1. Efficient Extraction of Oil from Microalgae

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: 815

    Microalgae are a promising feedstock for biofuels because of their high oil content, excellent CO2 capture, and ability to use brackish water and non-arable land. The extraction of oil from algae represents a challenging cost barrier to commercial biofuel production. Conventional technologies for algal oil extraction are energy-inefficient, cost-intensive, or non scalable, leading to bar ...

  2. High Speed and High Sensitivity Quadrant Photo Detector

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

    To further advance the characterization and utility of microcantilevers, next generation optical detectors with higher frequency response, improved displacement resolution and lower noise for weak signal detection are needed. Consequently, Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc. (RMD) will develop a turnkey optical detector module for use in characterizing the displacement and resonant frequencies of m ...

  3. Development of MicroFluidic Palette for Cellular Responses to Chemical Stimuli

    SBC: Bellbrook Labs, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Current research tools to understand tumor cell migration and metastases are limited to linear gradients or constant flow across cells skewing results. Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology developed a tool called the microfluidic palette which exposes cells to chemical stimuli in a static environment overcoming the limitations above. Several improvements are necessary ...

  4. Sensor Systems for Complete Residential Energy Monitoring

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: N/A

    In Phase 1, TIAX developed and demonstrated a residential energy monitoring system (R-EMS) with potential national energy savings of $20 billion annually. Based on user requirements and well-established systems engineering methodology, TIAX’s R-EMS solution is inexpensive, easy to install and operate, and is supportive of intuitive decision making about energy usage. In Phase 2, TIAX will ex ...

  5. Advanced Absolute Radiometers Using Superconducting Transition Thermometers

    SBC: CAMBRIDGE RESEARCH AND INSTRUMENTATION            Topic: N/A

    In our Phase 1 work we were able to replicate and build on recent results at NIST with superconducting transition (SCT) thermometers, which suggested that dramatic improvements may be achieved in detectivity and range of application, of cryogenic electrical substitution radiometers. Cryo-ESR's are widely used as the most accurate absolute standards of radiative flux and irradiance. In Phase 2, we ...

  7. A Solid-Solid Hybrid Gas Generator Fire Suppression System

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    This Phase 2 proposal addresses the advanced development and commercialization of a novel solid-solid hybrid gas generator fire suppression technology to replace the ozone depleting Halon 1301 for total flooding applications. Mainstream's solid-solid hybrid gas generator technology will result in the delivery of chemical extinguishing agents to the fire in addition to the inert gas agents. This te ...

  8. Device for the Uncontaminated Collection of Multiple Microbial Samples

    SBC: Mclane Research Laboratories,            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this research project is the development of an Autonomous Microbial Sampler (AMS) that will obtain uncontaminated and exogenous DNA-free microbial samples from deep-sea hydrothermal vents and other aquatic ecosystems. Sampling with the AMS may be conducted using manned submersibles, Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROV), Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUV) or during hydrocast operatio ...
