  1. Low Damage Ion Beam Etching Technique and Method for Compositional Profiling of Thin Multilayer Films

    SBC: 4WAVE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Thin film multilayers of nanometer scale thickness are fundamental to the future of electronics and communications technologies. Chemical depth profiling by ion etching techniques are critical to the characterization of these structures. A fundamental problem with current ion etching technologies is that typical ion energies (~1k eV to 20 keV) create extensive damage and intermixing of nanometer t ...

  2. Micro-Scale Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer

    SBC: Aerophysics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed research comprises design, analysis, and ultimate fabrication and operation of a microfabricated array of quadrupole mass spectrometers (QMS). The design capitalizes on recent advances in micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) and molecular-beam-epitaxy (MBE) technology so that the device can be mass-produced on a chip. In addition to analyzing a single element QMS in Phase 1, invest ...

  3. V-PSL and VISI_PSL: A Visual Language and Interactive Tool for PSL Generation

    SBC: Computer Aided Process Improvement, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose developing a prototype of a GUI-based wizard that: ¿ Guides users through the steps that are needed to define their processes using PSL in a visual/textual manner. ¿ Checks for consistency/correctness according to PSL ontology. ¿ Generates the PSL description. We believe that VISI-PSL will facilitate the generation of PSL descriptions to the extent that it will be used by process ...

  4. Advanced Tools for Process Specification Language

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This project will (i) extend and harden the PSL Editor and the Ontology-Driven XSLT Generator (ODXG) tools and (ii) extend the process description syntax (PDS) derived from the PSL for both KIF and XML/RDF formats. In addition, we will extend the PSL metatheoretical framework to support the PDS and the PSL tools by providing PSL extensions to support calendars and activity specialization, and by d ...

  5. PSL-based Process Knowledge Integration and Management Framework

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a robust framework, called the Process Knowledge Integration and Management Framework (PKIMF), to support the complete lifecycle of enterprise process knowledge that natively use the Process Specification Language (PSL). PKIMF uses a dashboard approach to design, analyze, integrate, exchange, and manage process knowledge. Its features and capabilities include the use of a pro ...

  6. Tool Condition Monitoring and Diagnostics

    SBC: VulcanCraft            Topic: N/A

    A smart machine tool must be able to monitor its condition and report problems. Every CNC machine should provide an alarm for tool condition problems, including tool wear, much as every automobile has a low oil indicator. Tool wear is particularly important for unattended machining as a worn tool can ruin a part. All current tool condition systems operate "blind" without direct information on curr ...

  7. Development of Multifunctional Open-system Sensor Integration Tool (MOSIT)

    SBC: WILLIAMSRDM, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Williams-Pyro, Inc. proposes to model and develop software to provide an interface allowing a common method of incorporating sensing components within different systems. The proposed software package, called the Multifunctional Open-system Sensor Integration Tool (MOSIT), will provide the circuit designer with a complete sensor interface solution. MOSIT will provide not only the Network Capable Ap ...

  8. Development of the Smart Environmental Monitoring System (SEMS)

    SBC: WILLIAMSRDM, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Firefighters have expressed the need for both increased accuracy in fire detection systems and greater access to environmental information in the event of a fire. To accomplish both tasks, Williams-Pyro, Inc. proposes to develop the Smart Environmental Monitoring System (SEMS). This system comprises both an advanced fire detection system and the networking capability necessary to provide real-time ...

  9. Automated Reconfiguable Intelligent Radio (ARIR)

    SBC: WILLIAMSRDM, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Williams-Pyro, Inc. proposes to develop an Automated Reconfigurable Intelligent Radio (ARIR), which consists of a series of distributed nodes that will relay voice and data to Intelligent Access Points (IAP) located within the building. This system will allow faster, more accurate information transmission, resulting in timely fire detection and safer firefighting. The main goal of ARIR is to ident ...

  10. Dual-Probe CD-AFM Calibration

    SBC: XIDEX CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Xidex proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of calibrating a critical-dimension atomic force microscope (CD-AFM) without the use of a reference artifact in such a way that high-precision critical dimensions can be generated independently of changes in probe tip shape (including the effects of tip wear), presence of the surface force uncertainties, and the stage uncertainties. The proposed calibr ...
