  1. Multimode Chiroptical Spectrometer for Nanoparticle Characterization

    SBC: Applied Nanofluorescence LLC            Topic: NA

    This project will develop a new scientific instrument optimized for the advanced characterization of near-infrared fluorescent nanoparticles that can exist as left- or right-handed structures (enantiomers). Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) are currently the leading example of such nanomaterials. Applied NanoFluorescence, LLC (ANF) proposes a novel multi-mode chiroptical spectrometer that ca ...

  2. Precision 10 kV Programmable Voltage Source

    SBC: Low Thermal Electronics, Inc.            Topic: NA

    Low Thermal Electronics, Inc. proposes to design a stand-alone, programmable voltage source capable of supplying precision voltages in the range of zero to 1,000 volts direct current (DC), with options for scaling up to 10,000 volts, and with a total expanded uncertainty (k=2) of less than 10uV/V for the 10,000 volts version. This instrument will improve state-of-the-art measurements in high resis ...

  4. Fiber Pigtailed On-Chip Mid-infrared Difference Frequency Generation in Silicon

    SBC: Omega Optics, Inc.            Topic: 90102

    Omega Optics will develop a fiber-coupled platform in strained silicon-on-sapphire (SoS) for tunable difference frequency generation in midwave infrared (MIR) with tunable continuous wave sources in the near-infrared (NIR). Stress exerted by silicon nitride on underlying silicon induces second-order nonlinear susceptibility. NIR light is coupled into silicon and MWIR light is coupled out of silico ...

  5. StepWise Virtual Tutor for Algebra I

    SBC: QUERIUM CORP            Topic: 1

    StepWise will be a mobile and desktop virtual tutor that provides real-time assessments and support to middle and high school students to learn Algebra. The adaptive engine will include rule-based artificial intelligence to guide students through the steps of solving problems, and will permit students to explore many different pathways to a correct response. After entering a response, students wil ...

  6. Conundrum: A Project to Computerize the Comprehensive

    SBC: The Evans Associates            Topic: N/A

    CSMP is an exciting K-6 math program, designated as an "exemplary educational program that works¿ by the U.S. Department of Education, which funded its development, evaluation, and dissemination. Its spiral, problem solving approach uses picture languages, abaci, and technically challenging games. Simple problems subtly introduce sophisticated concepts. While class and teacher-student intera ...

  7. AN AUDIO-VISUAL STIMULATION UNIT WITH EEG BIOFEEDBACK FOR ENHANCING COGNITIVE ABILITIES OF LEARNING DISABED BOYS

    SBC: Bio-educational Research Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT WILL DEVELOP AN INEXPENSIVE, PORTABLE, ELECTROENCEPHALOGRAPH (EEG) BIOFEEDBACK UNIT THAT PROVIDES AUDIO AND VISUAL STIMULATION (AVS) AT BRAINWAVE FREQUENCIES TO AID IN THE TREATMENT OF LEARNING DISABLED (LD) SCHOOL CHILDREN WITH ATTENTION DEFICIT DISORDER (ADD) OR WITH ATTENTION DEFICIT HYPERACTIVITY DISORDER (ADHD). THE UNIT WILL BE EASY ENOUGH TO OPERATE, SO THAT COUNSELORS AT SCHOO ...

  8. N/A

    SBC: STARFIRE ENGINEERING INC.            Topic: N/A

    WHEN IT IS NECESSARY TO RAISE A MARINE PIPELINE FOR REPAIR DUE TO TRAWLER SNAG, ETC., THE PIPELINE WILL BUCKLE, AND THEN THE BUCKLE WILL PROPAGATE IF ALL CONDITIONS ARE NOT PROPER. WITH SEVERE BUCKLES, THE PIPE WILL BREAK OPEN ALLOWING THE OIL TO SPILL. THIS CAN BE MINIMIZED BY PERIODICALLY PLACING REMOTELY OPERABLE VALVES IN THE LINE FOR CUTOFF. BUT SOMETIMES THE PIPELINE ROTATES AS IT IS BEING L ...

  9. N/A

    SBC: TRADCO CHEMICAL CORPON            Topic: N/A

    USING RADIO TELEMETRY MODEMS, IS CURRENTLY POSSIBLE. THIS IS NECESSARY BECAUSE LACK OF MONITORING CAUSES INADEQUATE CONTROL OF INTERNAL CORROSION TAKING PLACE INSIDE OFFSHORE PIPELINE SYSTEMS. THE NET RESULT IS PIPELINE FAILURE DUE TOTHE EFFECTS OF CORROSION. THE RESULT OF PIPELINE FAILURE WILL BE AN OIL SPILL IN COASTAL WATERS. AS THE NATION'S OFFSHORE PIPELINE SYSTEM GROWS OLDER, THE NET EFFECTS ...
