  1. Production of NIST/UCSF Breast Phantom for Magnetic Resonance Imagaing (MRI)

    SBC: Phantom Laboratory            Topic: N/A

    his project involves the commercialization of the breast phantom designed by NIST and University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) for quantitative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The breast phantom consists of two independent phantoms, one focused on diffusion MRI measurements and the other focused on accurate measurements of fat and fibroglandular tissue properties. The proposed phantom is o ...

  2. Dynamic Frequency Passive Millemeter-Wave Radiometer Based on Optical Up-Conversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 94

    Passive microwave sensors aboard satellites provide valuable information regarding weather conditions by measuring atmospheric attenuation over a broad range of frequencies from 0-200 GHz. Additional ground-based sensors are desirable to provide complementary upward looking measurements that can be used to refine existing attenuation models. Operating over such a large bandwidth, however, places ...

  4. Autonomous Sensing and Deciding Framework Processor

    SBC: BLACK RIVER SYSTEMS COMPANY INC            Topic: OSD12LD1

    Our objective is to develop an innovative cognitive knowledge-aided information processing framework to take very high rate intelligence data streams over wide areas and autonomously highlight Areas-of-Interest (AOIs) and targets for the image analyst without a priori knowledge of the area or location of the individual high interest targets. By using 100s of JADE based intelligent agents in Phase ...

  6. A Design Automation Tool for Integrated Nanophotonics based on Compact Modeling and Model Order Reduction

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: OSD13C05

    Existing physics-based device simulation tools are prohibitively expensive computationally, and therefore ill-suited for parametric analysis and design optimization of photonic integrated circuits (PIC). The proposed effort aims to develop and demonstrate an innovative, easy-to-use simulation tool for accurate, fast circuit/system analysis of PICs. The salient aspects of the proposed solution are: ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) Physical Unclonable Functions

    SBC: Lewis Innovative Technologies, Inc.            Topic: OSD10A02

    LIT accomplished all Phase I goals and technical objectives. In Phase I LIT produced an effective Random Number Generator (RNG) and tested two PUF designs. The PUF designs showed greatly improved Entropy and Stability over other technologies. LITs Entropy Goal for Phase II is 100% (already proven by analysis) and the Stability goal is one bit error per million bits. In Phase II LIT will ma ...
