  1. Light Source for Cavity Ring-Down Spectrometer

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Cavity Ring-Down (CRD) spectroscopy is developing into a precise tool for measuring gaseous contaminants in ultrahigh vacuum and other environments. Optimum sensitivity is obtained by driving the CRD spectrometer in the mid-IR part of the spectrum with about 100 mWatts of average power at 5 kHz and with pulse lengths of 10-50 nsec. Bandwidths of 100 MHz are required. There are no commercial lasers ...

  2. A Ruggedized System for Measuring Extreme Winds

    SBC: Caregiver Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We will develop technology, termed a Ruggedized Wind Measurement System (RWMS), to measure directly extreme winds with high space and time resolution, focusing on the winds that occur beneath hurricanes at land fall. This development effort will include design, fabrication of two prototype RWMS units, and a series of proof-of-concept demonstrations in strong mountain-induced downslope and severe t ...

  3. Machine Tool Operational Visualizer

    SBC: CNC Connection Corporation            Topic: N/A

    CNC machine tools continue to be a critical part of manufacturing; yet, a majority of the users still do not have a comprehension of how the systems function internal to the control system. With the current capability and cost benefits of personal computers and multimedia tools, the opportunity to create an educational tool to display the inner workings of the CNC system is feasible. This proposal ...

  4. NO MOVING PARTS RAIN GAUGE

    SBC: THE CORE GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE U.S. WEATHER SERVICE PRESENTLY USES A "TIPPING BUCKET" RAIN GAUGE FOR MEASURING RAIN ACCUMULATION. THIS DEVICE IS SENSITIVE TO WIND AND MOTION (AS ON BUOYS), CANNOT MEASURE RAIN RATE, AND REQUIRES FREQUENT MAINTENANCE, BECAUSE OF MOVING PARTS. AN ALTERNATIVE DEVICE IS BEING PROPOSED, WHICH INCORPORATES A RIGID, RESONANT TUBE, CLOSED AT THE TOP BY AN ELECTRO-ACOUSTIC TRANSDUCER, AND AT THE BOTT ...

  5. Development of a 10K TO 77K Magnetic Refrigerator

    SBC: CryoFuel Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The ability of high speed photography to record useful images of spray plumes generated by metal atomizers, metal spray deposition equipment, and plasma spray coatings depends on a light source capable of providing illumination suitable to record high velocity, specularly reflecting droplets. Due to the reflective nature of the surface of these particles, point sources and collimated light only al ...

  6. Diamond Indenter Finishing Machine

    SBC: Dia-Tool Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Dia-Tool proposes herein a new manufacturing machine that will combine the processing steps of shaping the indenter and the measurement of the resulting cone into a single automated Diamond Indenter Finishing Machine. The images of the edges of the indenter cone are digitized through an imaging array and directly stored in computer memory. The indenter cone images are then transformed by image ana ...

  7. Use of Very High Frequency Plasmas to Prepare a-SiGe Alloy Photovoltaic

    SBC: ENERGY CONVERSION DEVICES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The program objective is to investigate the feasibility of using a very high frequency (VHF) [70 MHz] plasma technique to produce high efficiency a-SiGe:H solar cells at relatively high deposition rates. Using the VHF technique, high quality a-SiGe:H material is expected due to enhanced low energy ion bombardment of the growing film surface which has been found to be beneficial to the growth of th ...

  8. Analysis Software for Near-Field Optical Microscopes

    SBC: Field Precision            Topic: N/A

    The near-field scanning optical microscope can supply information on the shape and electrical properties of surfaces with nanometer resolution. The quantitative interpretation of images is difficult because of the difficulty of electromagnetic field solutions in the near-field limit. We propose to supply software to aid in this analysis. The finite-element programs generate two and three-dimension ...

  9. APPLYING FIBER OPTIC SENSORS TO REAL-WORLD INDUSTRIAL PROBLEMS

    SBC: Future Focus, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    FIBER OPTIC SENSORS HAVE VERY ATTRACTIVE FEATURES FOR INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS. BECAUSE THEY USE NONCONDUCTING SILICA INSTEAD OF WIRES, THEY CAN OPERATE IN HIGH ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELD ENVIRONMENTS AND EXPLOSION HAZARD AREAS. THE EXPECTATIONS OF THE 1980S WERE THAT FIBER OPTIC SENSOR USAGE WOULD BE OVER $100M PER YEAR IN 1993; ACTUAL SALES WERE UNDER $20M. THE ORDER-OF-MAGNITUDE ERROR WAS IN PART DUE ...
