  1. Direct Performance Evaluation of Additive Manufacturing Process Plans

    SBC: INTACT SOLUTIONS INC.            Topic: None

    Additive manufacturing is steadily advancing towards fulfilling its promise of customized and on-demand production of functional parts. However, performance of as-manufactured parts can differ significantly from the as-designed parts because the as-manufactured geometry differs from the as-designed geometry and the asmanufactured material properties are not known. Attempts to predict performance o ...

  2. Developing Silicon Nanowire Sensors to Measuring Host-Cell Proteins at a Biomanufacturing Line

    SBC: Advanced Silicon Group            Topic: None

    Our biosensor is made of silicon nanowire arrays functionalized with antibodies to measure the concentration of specific proteins. In this grant we will take a sensor that has been demonstrated for use in measuring a set of generic host cell proteins and we will apply the sensor to measure a set of proteins for a specific cell line. In doing so, we will demonstrate the utility of our sensor to be ...

  3. Dynamic Quantum Frequency Conversion for Quantum Networks

    SBC: NUCRYPT LLC            Topic: 06a

    Functions like data format conversion and signal routing are ubiquitous in traditional communication networks, but need modification to be suitable for use in future quantum-enabled networks. In particular, quantum signals do not allow for electronic processing and certain metrics like insertion loss and noise are much more critical for quantum signals than traditional optical signals. We will inv ...

  4. Copper Nano-TSVs for 3D Integrated Sensors

    SBC: Nhanced Semiconductors, Inc.            Topic: 29d

    3D circuit integration improves performance, reduces cost, and enables new applications by intimate heterogeneous integration of best of class semiconductor devices. A necessary element for 3D assembly is Through Silicon Vias (TSVs), which provide vertical electrical connections in the stacked device. NHanced currently employs tungsten to fill its nanoscale TSVs (0.4 to 1.2µm diameter). Tungsten ...

  5. Additively Manufactured Z-Channel Detectors for Heavy Ion Accelerator Diagnostics

    SBC: ROBOT NOSE CORPORATION            Topic: 30f

    Argonne National Laboratory has pioneered a new method for additively manufacturing MCPs and functionalizing their channels with atomic layer deposition. We will help extend their technology to particle detection at Nuclear Physics facilities for beam tuning, and test a prototype detector at the ATLAS facility. The following figure summarizes the 5x faster pulse response of our proposed detector: ...

  6. Development Of A Beam Halo Monitor

    SBC: MUONS INC            Topic: 09b

    Advanced beam diagnostics are essential for reliable operation of high-performance accelerators and the intense beams produced by them. Non-invasive diagnostics can be used continuously with intense beams, while invasive techniques interfere with the beams and distort the beam profiles. In addition, traditional solid-based beam monitoring instrumentation produces unacceptable levels of radiation o ...

  7. Large Area Time-of-Flight Detectors for Imaging Science

    SBC: NOVA SCIENTIFIC INCORPORATED            Topic: 17b

    NOVA Scientific, Inc. proposes a Phase I SBIR program to develop, refine, and ultimately to commercialize, a large format 15 cm x 15 cm solid-state cold, thermal, and epithermal neutron imaging detector based on microchannel plates (MCPs). The imaging detector will be fabricated in a self-contained, hermetically sealed image tube, which does not require active vacuum pumping. This large area time- ...

  8. Metal-Organic Frameworks for the Separation of O2 from Air

    SBC: NuMat Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 23b

    Under this Phase I SBIR DOE grant, NuMat will validate and evaluate the feasibility of air separation technology originally developed at Sandia National Laboratories. This promising technology employs oxygen selective metal-organic frameworks (MOFs). Given their oxygen selectivity, this technology will enable more energy efficient air separation, higher oxygen recovery rates, with a smaller overal ...

  9. Single Photon Frequency Convertor with High Quantum Efficiency

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: 06a

    The overall goal of this SBIR is to increase the accessibility and range of emerging all-fiber quantum networks by significantly advancing the state-of-the-art in optical quantum networks using fully integrated, single-pass, quantum frequency conversion (QFC). Fiber-based quantum networks, to take advantage of low losses and the wide range of existing network components and infrastructure, are exp ...

  10. Integrating Software/Hardware Approaches for Compressive Sensing to Enhance the Performance of Ultra-High-Speed Electron Cameras

    SBC: SIVANANTHAN LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: 15e

    Sivananthan Laboratories will develop the compressive sensing (CS)/inpainting algorithms and associated software to optimize the acquisition speed, image resolution/sensitivity, and data transfer/storage requirements for an ultra-high-speed camera used in (scanning) transmission electron microscopy (S/TEM) applications. Sivananthan Laboratories will leverage its CS expertise through collaboration ...
