  3. STTR Phase II: Constitutive Promoters for Crop Improvement

    SBC: GRASSROOTS BIOTECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: EO

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase II project seeks to identify new and improved promoters to create enhanced genetically modified crops. Plant biotechnology relies on the insertion of promoter-gene constructs into plants. The promoter is the portion of DNA that controls when and where a gene is expressed. The relatively few plant promoters in use today have significant limitatio ...

  4. STTR Phase II: Improved Addressing Speed of Plasma-sphere Arrays

    SBC: Imaging Systems Technology, Inc.            Topic: EL

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase II project is a study to expand the high speed addressing work conducted under Phase I using monochrome Plasma-spheres to color Plasma-spheres. Plasma-spheres are hollow transparent shells that encapsulate a selected pressurized gas. When a voltage is applied across the shell, the gas ionizes and glows. Plasma-spheres are applied to flexible, el ...

  5. STTR Phase I: Controlled Phase Separation for Graphic Smart Card Display

    SBC: KENT DISPLAYS, INC.            Topic: MM

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project shall develop and model phase separating materials for passively-driven graphical displays, which are needed for smart cards that can display graphic images. Nearly all consumer credit cards used today have no functional display. Since the numbers and security codes on the cards cannot be changed, fraudulent use is estimated to be as high as ...

  8. STTR Phase I:Novel Nanostructured Substrates for Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS)

    SBC: LXD            Topic: MM

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project will develop a new type of nanostructured substrate for applications in arsenide detection using surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS). Arsenic is a well known toxic chemical which exists in both nature and industrial processes, and its detection and monitoring at very low concentration is highly desired. SERS, which relies on Raman sig ...
