  1. An Automated Lapping Apparatus and Process for High-Precision Random Profile Roughness Specimen Fabrication

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 9020268TT

    The measurement and quality control for smooth engineering surfaces are becoming more and more important in modern science and technology due to their important engineering functions and high production costs. NIST has frequently received requests from U.S. industry to provide Standard Reference Material (SRM) high-precision, random profile roughness specimens to support smooth surface measurement ...

  2. High-Sensitivity, Low-Cost, Surface-Acoustic-Wave Based Microscale Thermogravimetric Analyzer for Nanoparticle Characterization

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    To meet NIST’s need for development of a new electronic system for microscale thermogravimeter nanoparticle analysis, X-wave Innovations, Inc. (XII) proposes a high-sensitivity, high-accuracy, low-cost, surface-acoustic-wave based microscale thermogravimetric analyzer (SAW-µ-TGA). The proposed approach is based on XII-developed surface acoustic wave (SAW) sensor technology, which is capable of ...

  3. Climate Impact Visualization Tools Using Virtual 3D City for Community Based Planning and Outreach

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: 931RC

    Intelligent Automation, Inc. proposes an innovative visualization tool that transforms online GIS mappers into a climate impact assessment and planning tool that allows planners to visualize the impact of storm surges with sea level rise and coastal erosion using a 3D virtual city. The goal is to assist planners and emergency services to adapt to climate change at three tiers: i) Tier 3 (Long-te ...

  4. ADVANCED FIRE DETECTION BASED ON COMBINED CONVENTIONAL SMOKE AND CO SENSORS

    SBC: HUGHES ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT SMOKE DETECTION TECHNOLOGIES SUFFER FROM SIGNIFICANT FALSE ALARM RATES. THESE PROBLEMS ARE CURRENTLY BEING ADDRESSED BY REDUCING THE SENSITIVITY OF EXISTING PARTICULATE DETECTORS. IN THIS WORK, THE FEASIBILITY OF A COMBINED PARTICULATE AND CARBON MONOXIDE DETECTOR WILL BE EVALUATED. THE USE OF MULTIPLE FIRE SIGNATURES HAS THE POTENTIAL FOR REDUCING THE FALSE ALARM PROBLEMS WHILE INCREASING ...

  5. DEVELOPMENT OF A STANDARD CALIBRATION MODEL FOR THE NEAR-INFRARED ANALYSIS OF GASOLINE

    SBC: L T Industries Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF STANDARDS AND TECHNOLOGY (NIST) HAS UNDERTAKEN AN EFFORT TO PROVIDE SOLID STANDARDS AND ALGORITHMS FOR THE STANDARDIZATION OF NEAR-INFRARED SPECTROPHOTOMETERS. THIS EFFORT, COUPLED WITH RECENT ADVANCES IN MATHEMATICAL ALGORITHMS FOR REGRESSION MODEL TRANSFER, HAS CREATED AN OPPORTUNITY FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF STANDARD CALIBRATION MODELS. THE PROPOSED RESEARCH FOCUSES ON TH ...

  6. HIGH TC SUPERCONDUCTING THIN FILMS FOR TRANSFER STANDARD RADIOMETERS.

    SBC: NEOCERA, LLC            Topic: N/A

    HIGH TEMPERATURE SUPERCONDUCTING (HTSC) FILMS HAVE A LARGE POTENTIAL AS DETECTORS OF ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION. TO BE USEFUL FOR TRANSFER STANDARD RADIOMETERS, IT IS NECESSARY THAT THE HTSC FILM QUALITY SHOULD BE VERY HIGH, BOTH FROM THE VIEW POINTS OF STRUCTURE AND SUPERCONDUCTING PROPERTIES. A MAJOR TASK, IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE HIGH SENSITIVITY, FAST RESPONSE, LOW NOISE LEVELS, AND UNIFORM SPECTRAL ...
