  1. Anion Exchange Resin for Chirality-based Separation of Single-wall Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: Sepax Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Sepax Technologies, Inc. has identified a new type of anoin-exchange resin which separates single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) with >80% recovery yield and resolves in a single pass the chiral tubes of (6,5) well from commercial SWCNT starting materials by Chromatography. Improvement and scale up of the targeted resin production will facilitate the separation of chiral nanotubes for the academic ...

  2. Irradiated Environmental Chambers

    SBC: Measurement Analysis Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Using a novel concept for humidity control, based on a proprietary saturated air source, MAC will construct and evaluate a prototype of an environmental chamber for use with NIST’s SPHERE UV source, in weathering or other UV degradation studies. The chamber will interface to the exit ports of the SPHERE, maintaining the material coupons, mounted in a standardized sample holder, at a programmed t ...

  3. A Compact, Tamper-Resistant, Portable Fingerprint Scanner

    SBC: SBG Labs            Topic: N/A

    With the growing demand for more efficient fingerprinting techniques, live scans are rapidly displacing traditional ink-based methods. Despite improvements in detector and processing technology for capturing and digitizing fingerprints, current equipment falls well short of NIST’s goal of a small, tamper-resistant, battery-powered, handheld scanner. Incumbent equipment suppliers have little comm ...

  4. Realizaiton of Large Area Imaging Magnetic Analyzer

    SBC: Synchrotron Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Two distinct designs with performance characteristics for analyzers consistent with the solicitation requirements were delivered in Phase 1. The Phase 1 research and modeling results have been sufficiently conclusive to indicate feasibility of both designs. The more novel of the two designs is proposed: a hybrid magnetic/electrostatic analyzer that features very high collection and transmission ef ...

  6. Credential Management

    SBC: ECleide (VKD Shoppe, Inc.)            Topic: N/A

    The ability to electronically identify users and their devices is increasingly becoming an integral part of our interaction with computing platforms. Whether an operating system is contacting the manufacturer's web site to confirm its proper registration and payment today, or a cell phone is broadcasting entrance credentials to a secure physical site tomorrow, it is apparent that identifying infor ...

  7. Ontology based Computational Tools for Distributed CAD

    SBC: Lateral Eye, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CAD CAM technologies have had an immense impact on the product development process in the last two decades. Current technologies, however, have limited knowledge representation and computational capabilities to enable collaboration of design decisions beyond commercial Internet based collaboration tools. In the Phase 1 Lateral Eye proposes to develop a new framework for Knowledge Integrated comput ...

  8. ErAs:GaAs Photomixers for High-Resolution THz Spectroscopy

    SBC: Physical Domains            Topic: N/A

    A new type of THz photomixer will be developed using a submicron interdigitated-electrode structure fabricated on an Eras:GaAs ultrafast photoconductive layer, an AIAs heat spreader and an AIGas/AIAs dielecric mirror. The Eras:GaAs-based photomixer will provide extremely wide tuning bandwidth (>1 decade) and a continuous-wave output power of roughly 10 microwatt around 100 GHz, at least 1 microwat ...

  9. UHV Solid State Detector for Wavelength Dispersive X-Ray Spectrometer

    SBC: Radiant Detector Technologies, Llc            Topic: N/A

    Wavelength dispersive spectrometers (WDS) are widely used in both scanning electron microscopes and scanning transmission electron microscopes for x-ray elemental analysis and mapping. The WDS systems are typically used to detect x-rays in the 100 eV - 2000 eV energy range, for chemical analysis of elements Be through P. Despite the excellent energy resolution of the WDS systems, they rely on gas ...

  10. Next-generation Simulation Suite for Advanced Optical Metrology

    SBC: RSOFT DESIGN GROUP            Topic: N/A

    This proposal is aimed at developing a full software solution for the next generation advanced optical metrology. Existing simulation tools cannot meet the current and future needs of scattering-based optical metrology for semiconductor manufacturing. Our proposed work will first focus on developing an enhanced RCWA-based simulation engine with advanced algorithms for fast convergence and stabilit ...
