  2. Multiplexed Signal Recovery for Ultrafast Diagnostics

    SBC: MESA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: 24b

    There is a growing need for high bandwidth (greater than 2 terahertz) long duration optical waveform measurement in telecommunications, laser development, and data collection from optically encoded sensors.Sensor monitoring requires multiplexing multiple sensors for cost reduction.The system must also be able to completely characterize laser driver pulses at multiple locations, providing the inten ...

  3. HYPERTUNNEL- A MR/VR Remote Collaboration System

    SBC: FactualVR, Inc.            Topic: 05a

    An important challenge electric utilities will face in the foreseeable future is a workforce that is rapidly retiring and the resulting loss of institutional knowledge.This will also create a vulnerability in the electric grid, especially during widespread power outages where recovery efforts rely on a team of well-trained and experienced personnel.Disasters like Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico hig ...

  4. Supercharger for Heat Pumps in Cold Climates


    For many years, electrically driven heat pumps have proven to be an effective method of extracting heat from ambient air. As air temperature falls, however, heat pump performance falls off, essentially limiting their year round usefulness to warmer climates. In colder climates heat pump-equipped heating systems typically have a secondary means to provide heat, usually natural gas or electricity. ...

  5. Fully Integrated Low-Cost High-Precision Carbon Dioxide Analyzer

    SBC: VISTA PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: 29b

    Understanding global warming requires continuous field measurements of carbon dioxide concentrations. High-precision measurements of a part-in-3000, or better, are required. However, these high-performance instruments must meet stringent cost objectives. A simple, rugged, infrared spectrometer can provide the required measurement precision at the solicited volume price point. Vista Photonics pr ...

  6. Collaborative VR/AR Data Visualization Tool

    SBC: Woodruff Scientific, Inc.            Topic: 21c

    Computational physicists and diagnosticians need to analyze 3D data to gain understanding of their simulations or diagnostic results.Visualizing 3D Physics effects by use of 2D screens can limit understanding or even create misunderstandings.Communication of results between collaborators can be difficult when using 2D images or movies, sent by email with written explanations: one finds oneself rep ...

  7. Diode Laser Sensor for Contaminants in Hydrogen Fuel

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 14b

    Low concentrations of contaminants in hydrogen fuel can foul or damage fuel cells in hydrogen fuel cell vehicles. Currently there is infrequent monitoring of hydrogen quality at filling stations. There is no instrumentation available to perform this function at the station. In this project, a diode laser instrument is being developed that will be able to perform these measurements at filling stati ...

  8. Next Generation Portable Power Amplifier


    MaXentric proposes the GAU2x2 wideband power amplifier system. The design combines MaXentrics wideband RF PA technology with advanced digital signal processing in a single small footprint package. This tight integration is made possible through the extremely high efficiency and low power dissipation. Since very little power is dissipated as heat, the package and heat sink size can be minimized. In ...

  9. Superconducting Tunnel Junction Detectors for High-Resolution X-Ray Spectroscopy

    SBC: STAR CRYOELECTRONICS LLC            Topic: 17c

    X-ray absorption spectroscopy is a widely used experimental technique for studying the composition and chemistry of materials and is one of the driving forces behind the explosive growth of synchrotron light sources and their increase in brightness by many orders of magnitude. However, advances in detector technology have not kept pace with advances in synchrotron brightness, leading to limitation ...

  10. Atomic Force Microscope Active Optical Probe for Single-Molecule Imaging and Time-Resolved Optical Spectroscopy

    SBC: Actoprobe LLC            Topic: 08b

    While science and technology fields greatly benefit from Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) in surface characterization, time-resolved chemical imaging on the single-molecule level, e.g., Near-Field Scanning Optical Spectroscopy and Ultrafast Tip-Enhanced Spectroscopy, lags far behind — current scanning probe microscopy only obtains information about mechanical, but not chemical/optical properties. T ...
