  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. Microfabricated Broadband Connectors for Frequencies Above 100 GHz

    SBC: Nuvotronics, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The region of the electromagnetic spectrum from 100 GHz to 400 GHz is currently underutilized but an area of exciting promise. Although atmospheric attenuation is higher in this region, the high frequency enables higher bandwidth operation. Transmit and receive components are also small resulting in the potential for lightweight miniature systems. Sub-millimeter waves also have the unique ability ...

  3. Non-contact Inline Material Sensor for Measurement of Electrical Properties of Nanofiber Films

    SBC: PANERATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    PaneraTech is proposing a non-contact dual sensor for broadband and real-time characterization of thin nanofiber films during the manufacturing. Our solution offers several unique aspects that are ideal for this application. For instance, it uses a dual CPW sensor for low frequencies and free space transmission system for higher frequency band. Our proposed sensor system is also equipped with high ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Technologies to Enhance Fire Safety

    SBC: INNOVATIVE WIRELESS TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Communications between fire fighting teams traditionally consists of two-way, trunked and conventional radios that severely degrade once inside of a building or tunnel. The proposed research is focused on solving the uninterrupted in-building and in-tunnel voice and data services which are critical for fire fighter safety. Innovative Wireless Technologies (IWT) of Forest, Virginia proposes a feasi ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. DIVERSE WIMP Framework

    SBC: OPEN TECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Open Tech proposes to adapt the WIMP (Window Icon Menu Pointer) interface for immersive applications. Using logical input devices like windows, menus, sliders, and buttons applications can be built to be device independent. Open Tech¿s innovative approach uses a laser pointer like mouse to control a 3D WIMP interface. Scientists will be able to quickly build interfaces that are easier to learn, ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Acoustic Pulsed Phase Locking Energy Sensor (APPLES)

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    Luna Innovations proposes to develop for NIST a low-cost, yet high resolution acoustic sensor system capable of determining micro-degree changes in a water path caused by clinical medical radiation devices. The sensors are external to the water and play a negligible role in thermal transfer in contrast to current thermocouple devices in use today. An exciting element in this proposal is APPLES' ab ...

  10. High Pulsed Power Varactor Multipliers for Imaging

    SBC: VIRGINIA DIODES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We will focus our diode based multiplier technologies toward achieving a source suitable for the NIST imaging system in the 200 ¿ 400 GHz band. To date our best doubler to 200 GHz generates up to 55 mW of (CW) power with 30% efficiency and 15% (3dB) bandwidth. However, the NIST imaging system requires pulsed performance with more than an order of magnitude higher peak input power. Thus, the mul ...
