  1. Improved Sensing Using Simultaneous Orthogonal Spectroscopic Detection

    SBC: Applied Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: A09AT019

    US forces are increasingly involved in asymmetric warfare, peacekeeping and humanitarian assistance missions. These scenarios can place soldiers in direct contact with harmful biological and chemical warfare organisms and agents, toxic industrial chemicals, and explosives. Current portable sensor technology solutions rely on visible and near-IR Raman or Fluorescence spectroscopy. But operations ...

  2. LITE Spectrometer for surface bound CBE Materials

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A09AT022

    A stand-off mid-IR based system offers great promise for the detection of chemical, biological or explosive (CBE) agents. Such a system has yet to be realized due mostly to broad spectral features and interfering substances. In this proposal we will demonstrate the feasibility of a system that collects laser induced thermal emission (LITE) from a substance and identifies it as known CBE agent with ...

  3. Frequency Agile Sensor for Trace Explosives Detection

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF08BT26

    In collaboration with Sandia National Laboratory, Physical Sciences Inc (PSI) proposes to design, develop, and demonstrate a Frequency Agile Terahertz Sensor (FATS) for trace explosives residue detection. The critical frequency agile terahertz (THz) detector is based on an electronically tunable plasmonic grating-gate technology developed by our collaborators at Sandia. Phase I will further impr ...

  4. Sulfur and Carbon Tolerant Logistic Fuel Reformer

    SBC: ASPEN PRODUCTS GROUP, INC.            Topic: A09AT018

    Development of a novel logistic fuel reformer that has excellent tolerance to sulfur and is resistant to coke formation is proposed. The reformer will produce a hydrogen-rich product that contains less than 1 ppm sulfur and is suitable for use with solid oxide fuel cells. Significant improvements in power density, startup time, durability, and cost relative to state of the art logistic fuel refo ...

  5. Non-destructive Exfoliation and Drying of Anisotropic Nanomaterials

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: A09AT021

    The overall goal of this proposed Army STTR is to demonstrate low-cost, non-destructive methodologies for non-agglomerating drying of anisotropic nanomaterials. NanoSonic and Virginia Tech will work in tandem to demonstrate novel approaches involving both high performance coatings and CO2 processing that facilitate gentle, simultaneous drying and exfoliation of nanoparticles, preventing agglomera ...

  6. VLSI Compatible Silicon-on-Insulator Plasmonic Components

    SBC: ITN ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF08BT18

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project will develop ultradense, low-power plasmonic integration components and devices for on-chip manipulation and processing of optical signals. Both passive and active components will be studied. Detailed performance predictions will be obtained through finite element modeling (FEM) of the harmonic Maxwell’s equations. The FEM provides detai ...

  9. Instrumentation for Nanoscale Spectroscopy

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: AF08BT30

    We propose to develop a combination Tip-Enhanced Raman Scattering and Shear-Force Microscopy (TERS-SFM) instrument to study the composition and morphology of nanoparticles, surfaces, and biofilms on any substrate material. The instrument developed during Phase I will rely upon Scanning Tunneling Microscopy combined with TERS (TERS-STM) to test the effects of various excitation wavelengths and tip ...

  10. Novel Methods for Sensor Quieting in Turbulent Flows

    SBC: PROGENY SYSTEMS CORPORATION            Topic: ST092004

    The Progeny – University of Utah team proposes a new approach for flow noise reduction to improve acoustic sensor performance. Our proposal is to investigate the ability of controlling the turbulent flow by utilizing acceleration which makes the flow locally laminar. Our proposed method of achieving acceleration is to send the flow around a concave surface, by adding a “two-dimensional bump ...
