  1. Cryptosporidium Detection System

    SBC: CIENCIA INC            Topic: N/A

    The Phase I objective is to develop a compact, low-cost, easy-to-use system for the rapid detection of Cryptosporidium oocysts. Two key innovations provide the foundation for Ciencia, Inc.'s system: (1) a dielectrophoretic field-flow-fractionation method to replace current filtering and centrifugation methods to concentrate the sample and remove nontarget organisms or nonbiological debris, and (2) ...

  2. Subsurface In-Suite Volatile Organic Contaminant (VOC) Sampling Using Multiple Sorbent Traps With Rapid On-Site/Off-Site Quantitative Speciation

    SBC: DAKOTA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Dakota Technologies, Inc. (DTI), has demonstrated successfully key technologies used in the operation of a miniature gas chromatograph (GC) that fits inside a push rod for field screening and quantification of subsurface volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The GC is soft-pushed (no percussion) into the earth and uses a heated microporous inlet membrane on the side of the probe to transfer VOCs from ...

  3. High Lubricity Coatings for High Pressure Fuel Pumps

    SBC: INFRAMAT CORP            Topic: N/A

    Direct-injection (DI) fuel pumps operate on petroleum-based hydrocarbons that have inherent lubricating properties. DI fuel pumps that inject clean-burning liquid fuels with no lubricating properties (such as methanol or dimethyl ether) induce a major wear problem at the interface of the plunger and cylinder wall. Addition of a sacrificial liquid lubricant to reduce this wear would defeat the obje ...

  4. An Electroanalytical Alumina Sensor for Use in Aluminum Production

    SBC: Oxley Research, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Improved control of dissolved alumina concentration in the molten cryolite of Hall-Heroult cells is an important need in the aluminum smelting industry. A major incentive is avoiding "anode effect" that occurs when the cryolite bath's alumina content becomes too low (e.g., less than 2.2 w/o) to support normal electrolysis. Anode effect reflects production and accumulation of perfluorocarbons at th ...

  5. Exhaust Gas Monitoring for Process Control and Pollution Reduction in Semiconductor Manufacturing

    SBC: On-Line Technologies, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Perfluorocarbons (PFCs), known greenhouse gases, are used widely in semiconductor manufacturing. Several options for reducing the emissions of PFCs are being considered, including: (1) optimizing the process; (2) reducing the nonproduction operation of the fabrication tool; (3) recovering and recycling the unused PFCs; (4) using alternative etch gases; and (5) postprocess abatement (combustion). T ...

  6. Fuel State and Additive Analyzer

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Fuels in high altitude and latitude aircraft (e.g., the U-2) must have freezing point temperatures well below -60 ¿C, and must maintain flow to similar temperatures (e.g., viscosity of ~ 6 cSt). JPTS, a high purity kerosene based fuel has the requiredproperties, but costs ~ 3 times more than standard jet fuels, such as JP-8 (military grade) or Jet A (commercial). The need for JPTS also presents ...

  7. Crested Tunnel Barriers for Fast, High Density, Nonvolatile Memory Devices

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Crested multi-layer tunnel barriers have been proposed, which offer a revolutionary solution to overcome density to speed trade-offs characteristic of present data storage technologies. Practical implementation of the proposed technology will involve useof thin film materials which are readily manufacturable and CMOS-compatible. A critical need exists for experimental verification of the theoret ...

  8. Control Sensor for Turbine Engine Augmentor Rumble and Screech

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    During aircraft turbine engine operation, augmentor (afterburner) operation is often associated with combustion instabilities (oscillations) that can be potentially detrimental to the turbine engine if the resonant amplitude levels are excessive.Oscillation in the frequency range of 50-100 Hz is commonly called

  10. Real-time Corrections to Multiple Channel Response Functions for Time-Correlating Transient Data

    SBC: APPLIED MATHEMATICS INC            Topic: N/A

    Interpretation of observed phenomena from time series is often complicated by measured quantities being only indirect indicators of a system's state. Information about a system may be filtered by properties of the transmission medium, or by the manner inwhich the information is collected. Multiple time series, though possibly concurrent, may be acquired differently, with different averaging or del ...
