  1. Light Source for Cavity Ring-Down Spectrometer

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Cavity Ring-Down (CRD) spectroscopy is developing into a precise tool for measuring gaseous contaminants in ultrahigh vacuum and other environments. Optimum sensitivity is obtained by driving the CRD spectrometer in the mid-IR part of the spectrum with about 100 mWatts of average power at 5 kHz and with pulse lengths of 10-50 nsec. Bandwidths of 100 MHz are required. There are no commercial lasers ...

  2. Development of a 10K TO 77K Magnetic Refrigerator

    SBC: CryoFuel Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The ability of high speed photography to record useful images of spray plumes generated by metal atomizers, metal spray deposition equipment, and plasma spray coatings depends on a light source capable of providing illumination suitable to record high velocity, specularly reflecting droplets. Due to the reflective nature of the surface of these particles, point sources and collimated light only al ...

  3. On-Line Analyzer for Nitrate, Nitrite, Ammonia, pH and Dissolved Oxygen

    SBC: Northwest Instrument Systems,            Topic: N/A

    This project will develop an on-line analyzer instrument for rapid automated sequential analysis of water samples for nitrate nitrogen, nitrite nitrogen, ammonia, pH, and dissolved oxygen. These common chemical constituents and characteristics are essential to the management of aquacultural production facilities. These parameters must be measured frequently and accurately to maintain the health of ...

  4. A Prototype System for Distributed Space-Weather Models and Applications

    SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Accurate and timely information about space weather has become essential for managing many technologies on which our lives depend (e.g., radio communications, Global Positioning Systems). A major limitation to accessing this information from NOAA and private vendors is the lack of well-defined, standardized methods for accessing data or running models remotely over the Internet. Northwest Research ...

  5. An Underwater, Video-Based, Stereoscopic Imaging and Measurement System

    SBC: Quest Integrated, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The development of a PC-based stereoscopic imaging and measuring system (SIMS) that will be suitable for underwater applications is proposed. There are three main objectives for the Phase 1 work: 1) to evaluate the requirements (accuracy, range, field of view, speed, potability, etc.) For a field-worthy, video-based SIMS; 2) to modify our existing stereo measurement system to accept video input an ...

  6. Simplified DNA Probe Identification of Harmful Algal Species

    SBC: Saigene Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Certain algal species have been identified as producing toxins which when ingested can cause illness and death in humans and many marine species. While it is possible and necessary to test for the actual toxins, this proposal describes the development of a rapid DNA probe based test for detection of toxin producing algal species. The test is semi-automated, easy-to-use, requires little technical t ...

  7. Long-Range Communications for the Aerosonde Autonomous Sounding Aircraft

    SBC: The Insitu Group            Topic: N/A

    In 1995, we started field trials of miniature autonomous aircraft, an aerosonde, for long-range weather reconnaissance. With a maximum weight of only 12 kg, and a wingspan of 3 m, it has about 1500 km range and 24 hours endurance. This early version leaves much room for improvement, and we expect to double range and endurance by mid-1997. Still another doubling ultimately should be feasible, to ...

  9. Diesel Fuel Lubricity Additive From Seed Oil

    SBC: International Lubricants            Topic: N/A

    In order to meet the increasingly stringent air quality goals of the Federal Clean Air Act andAmendments (CAAA) major changes have been made in refining diesel fuel to remove sulfur.While reducing sulfur levels in diesel fuel lowers problematic emissions, it also reduces fuellubricity. Sulfur is an important element in combating wear in fuel injection systems.Hydrotreating the fuel for sulfur red ...

  10. Use Of Mycotrol Residue Containing B. Bassiana

    SBC: Mycotech Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Mycotech produces Mycotrol, a commercial preparation of Beauveria bassiana (Bb). The residuecontains 109 spores of Bb per gram which could be economically used to reduce European corn borer(ECB) damage to corn crops. The objective is to develop an economic bio-control strategy for ECB.Three strategies for applying the Mycotrol residue to corn are proposed:¿ inoculating the seed and/or soil duri ...
