  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. Perflouromembranes for Low Cost Oxygen Enrichment of Aquaculture


    Success in aquaculture depends heavily on delivery of oxygen to fish. Currently, liquid oxygen and on-site generation by pressure swing adsorption (PSA) are two methods for supplying oxygen to aquaculture. Both are costly and have absorption efficiency problems. Membrane contractors, paddle wheels, and porous pipes are used with limited success to enhance oxygen transport to aquaculture. We ha ...

  3. Seismic Detection of Tornados

    SBC: Engineering Analysis Inc            Topic: N/A

    This project concerns tornado detection based on seismic waves. At the present time, the only generally accepted method for detecting when a tornado is on the ground is human observation. Based on actual seismic signals combined with eyewitness testimony, there is very strong evidence to indicate that a tornado in contact with the ground produces significant tornadic seismic vibrations (TSV), bo ...

  4. A Low Cost Superconducting Frequency Counter Josephson Voltage Standard

    SBC: HYPRES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The principal factor preventing wide use of the Josephson primary voltage standard is its cost. By reducing the cost of a HYPRES voltage standard to a level comparable with true cost of secondary standards (including the cost of calibration and low accuracy, etc.), and making it easy to use, we intend to put the Josephson voltage Standard within reach of most secondary standard users. In phase I ...

  5. High Accuracy Digital to Analog Converter Based on Processing Magnetic

    SBC: HYPRES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    HYPRES proposes the development of Digital-to-Analog Converter (DAC) with extremely high accuracy and linearity. The DAC is based on the processing of magnetic flux quanta in an integrated superconductive circuit. The device uses a stable reference ac signal at relatively low frequency (below 100 MHz). This frequency is multiplied on chip up to 48 GHz. The operation of the device is based on the d ...

  6. Automated Feature Extraction from Scanned Nautical Charts and High-Resolution Images for GIS Applications Using Expert Systems Programmable with Pseudo-English

    SBC: Susquehanna Resources And            Topic: N/A

    Converted from advanced automatic target recognition (ATR) processors, this new feature extraction/GIS system (a) uses raster data as input, and thus eliminates manual digitization; (b) uses expert systems to extract features automatically, and thus eliminates time-consuming and error-prone manual object tracing; and (c) vectorizes the extracted objects and converts them into GIS layers automatica ...

  7. Automated Map Feature Vectorization with NOAA's Raster Nautical Chart

    SBC: Susquehanna Resources And            Topic: N/A

    For this SBIR effort, first, we will prove that map features in NOAA's raster nautical charts can be extracted with automated means rather than manual digitizing. Second, we will prove that the extracted raster-based features can be vetorized with no or insignificant error in size, shape, and spacing among objects, yielding a robust raster/vector hybrid spatial database. Third, using a comparative ...

  8. Materials Science and Engineering

    SBC: The Cooke Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The identification of a requirement for an advanced, user friendly high speed, short exposure (50-100nsec) electronic CCD Camera system to improve and further the investigation of thermal spray methods through detailed and accurate analysis encourages and accelerates the opportunity to develop a state of the art multiple exposure high speed video camera. This proposal is intended to enable the res ...

  9. Cold Neutron Microprobe for Material Analysis Using Tapered Capillary Optics

    SBC: X-RAY OPTICAL SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The project will research a new generation of optic for focusing cold neutrons using tapered capillary optics. The success of the program will result in neutron beam probes with unprecedented spatial resolution and detection limits for small sample volumes. The individuals involved are the world leaders in neutron focusing capillary optics, having achieved better than an order-of-magnitude impro ...
