  1. Advanced Instrumentation for Non-Nulling Stack Velocity Testing

    SBC: AIRFLOW SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: None

    Industrial facilities, manufacturing plants, and electric power plants that burn fossil fuels exhaust the combustion products to atmosphere through their smokestacks. Stack pollutant emissions are quantified using manual testing methods developed in the 1960s, which are prone to error if non-axial flow exists in a stack.Recently, NIST has been working on an improved technique of performing 3D flow ...

  3. Continuous Monitoring of Natural Gas Infrastructure for Increased Community Resilience using Voltammetric Sensors

    SBC: FULLMOON SENSORS, INC.            Topic: None

    Fullmoon has the first chip-level sensors capable of identifying and quantifying molecules in the air. At the core of our technology are printed voltammetric sensors, which are operated using cyclic voltammetry, an electrochemical technique that probes for the redox potential, a unique signature of molecules. We have demonstrated this sensing principle for the detection of carbon monoxide and meth ...

  4. CSAT: A User-friendly Efficient NIST-spec Information System Development Guideline Tool

    SBC: INFOBEYOND TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: None

    NIST developed risk management framework and guidelines that assist agencies to implement integrated, organization‐wide programs to manage information security risk, and further developed Cloud Security Architecture Tool (CSAT) to facilitate in this matter. However, NIST’s CSAT needs further improvement and implementation of new functions such that it can be commercialized as an Enterprise‐g ...

  5. Developing Commercial Quantum Resistance Standard Based on Epitaxial Graphene

    SBC: Graphene Waves, LLC            Topic: None

    Graphene Waves proposes to develop a quantum Hall resistance (QHR) standard based on graphene that can be deployed for general electrical calibration in industries. Current QHR standard is based on GaAs/AlGaAs heterostructure and requires expensive liquid helium to operate. The continuous increase in price and unstable supply chain of liquid helium limit the QHR standard to be only affordable by t ...

  6. Developing Silicon Nanowire Sensors to Measuring Host-Cell Proteins at a Biomanufacturing Line

    SBC: Advanced Silicon Group            Topic: None

    Our biosensor is made of silicon nanowire arrays functionalized with antibodies to measure the concentration of specific proteins. In this grant we will take a sensor that has been demonstrated for use in measuring a set of generic host cell proteins and we will apply the sensor to measure a set of proteins for a specific cell line. In doing so, we will demonstrate the utility of our sensor to be ...

  8. Microcapillary Quartz Sensors for Screening Injectability of High Concentration Protein Formulations

    SBC: Qatch Technologies, LLC            Topic: None

    The objective of this SBIR Phase I proposal is to determine the feasibility of viscosity characterization of high concentration protein formulations (HCF) by QATCH’s microcapillary quartz technology. HCFs are non-Newtonian fluids with shear-thinning behavior and they are administered to patients by subcutaneous or muscular injections. The injectability of HCFs depends on the viscosity at high-sh ...

  10. Nanomachine Device for Semiconductor Process Control Monitoring

    SBC: Xallent LLC            Topic: None

    Conventional characterization and test methods are increasingly ineffective when applied to structures less than 100 nanometers, causing challenges across R&D, process control and failure analysis. An increasing number of subtle defects become prominent drivers of failure as device size and operating margins decrease, e.g., processing anomalies in thin gate oxides, substrate problems related to do ...
