  1. Coaxial Energetic Ion Depostition of Superconducting Coatings on Copper RF Cavities for Particle Accelerators

    SBC: ALAMEDA APPLIED SCIENCES CORP            Topic: 15 a

    75521S Radio frequency (RF) cavities are a key component in particle accelerators for fundamental high-energy physics research and medical applications. To enhance their capabilities, niobium-coated superconducting copper cavities have shown promise for supporting higher electric field gradients when compared to non-superconducting designs. However, a satisfactory coating method has not been de ...

  2. High Temperature, Superconducting, Thinfilm Coatings for RF Accelerator Cavities

    SBC: ALAMEDA APPLIED SCIENCES CORP            Topic: 45 a

    78840S05 Superconducting radio frequency (RF) accelerator cavities are traditionally constructed from pure Niobium metal. However, niobium is expensive and difficult to manufacture, leading to increased material and fabrication costs. Compounding the cost problem is the fact that the majority of the superconductor is wasted because the majority of the material is used to meet the mechanical stre ...

  4. Clinical Human Cell Production System for Broad Use

    SBC: Aastrom Biosciences, Inc.            Topic: n/a

    The therapeutic potential of patient-specific cultured cells continues to rapidly grow for a range of medical needs, such as regenerative repair of damaged tissue, cancer, and infectious diseases. As a result, the motivation to commercialize patient-specific "cell products" is increasing rapidly as well. A large unmet need exists for the development of reliable clinical and commercial ceil manufac ...

  5. Cannula System for "Bridge to Recovery" Cardiac Assist

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: n/a

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Cardiac failure is the, largest single cause of mortality in the United States today. With an increase in the use of long-term cardiac assist devices, there is also a need for the short-term "bridge to recovery" application. This application is intended to provide a low-cost temporary support for patients whose heart is capable of recovering. This "patient scr ...

  6. LCAI: Exploring the potential of an independently usable, internet-based multimedia software system for self-Paced assessment, instruction and practice in listening comprehension skills for non readers

    SBC: ABLELINK TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: n/a

    Data from the National Assessment of Adult Literacy (NAAL) indicates that 4-6% of adults in the US have insufficient reading skills to attempt participation in NAAL s literacy assessment in 1992 (Literacy in the Labor Force, p. 310-320). While there are approximately 8 million individuals with intellectual disabilities (e.g., mental retardation) in the US, there is no data specific to the subset o ...

  10. Non-Marine-Based Fishmeal and Fish Oil Replacement Strategies for the Production of Aquaculture Feeds

    SBC: ABN            Topic: n/a

    If aquaculture is to become an increasing contributor to the food supply, it is critical that aquaculture feeds become less reliant on marine-derived fishmeal and fish oil as the preferred source of essential proteins and lipids. Not only is the wild fishery from which these products are extracted at maximum sustainable levels of harvest, but also there is increasing concern that these feedstocks ...
