  1. Sensor for Monitoring of Particulate Emissions in Diesel Exhaust Gases

    SBC: Active Spectrum, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Active Spectrum, Inc. proposes a novel, low-cost soot sensor for on-board measurement of soot emissions in diesel exhaust gases. The proposed technology is differentiated from existing method by excellent sensitivity, high specificity to carbon particulates, and robustness to fouling by accumulated soot. Potential commercial applications of the real-time sensor include diesel emissions reduction ...

  2. Precision Cleaning/Sub-Micron Level Cleaning with Liquid/Supercritical Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Technology

    SBC: GT Equipment Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Not Available Q-Peak, Inc. proposes to develop a broadly tunable, 10-W-average-power IR source suitable for use as a DIAL system transmitter and based on the combination of a Nd-doped pulsed pump laser and optical parametric oscillators (OPO). The laser source, a compact, diode-pumped, 5-10 kHz pulse-repetition-rate, Q-switched Nd:YLF laser, will pump a tandem OPO system consisting of an angle-tu ...

  3. A Novel Treatment Method of Drinking Water

    SBC: Ion Physics Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Pulsed electric field (PEF) disinfection is becoming well known as a possible means for the control of microorganisms in fluids. Although this technique has been shown to be effective against a wide variety of microorganisms, its widespread application is impeded by the high specific energy input (kWh/L) required. Conversely, the proposed enhanced PEF process promises a significant reduction in th ...

  4. Low-Cost Machining Without Cutting Fluids

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    Cutting fluids have been used in machining processes for many years to decrease the temperature during machining by spraying the coolant into the machining zone, directly on the cutting tool and the part. This has the effect of decreasing the tool temperature, which increases tool life and improves the part quality. These benefits come with significant drawbacks. Cutting fluids are environmenta ...

  6. A NOVEL APPROACH FOR FILTRATION OF DIESEL ENGINE EXHAUST

    SBC: Techniweave, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE CLEAN AIR ACT REQUIRES THAT CERTAIN EXHAUST EMISSIONS STANDARDS BE MET BY HEAVY DUTY TRUCKS AND BUSSES (CLASS 8 VEHICLES) POWERED BY DIESEL ENGINES. THE LIMITS SET FOR 1998 CAN ONLY BE MET THRU THE USE OF EXHAUST TREATMENT DEVICES. A NOVEL WOVEN CERAMIC YARN FILTER CAPABLE OF HIGH TEMPERATURE OPERATION HAS BEEN DEVISED WHICH HAS THE POTENTIAL FOR IMPROVED DURABILITY AND FILTRATION PERFORMANCE ...

    SBIR Phase I 1992 Environmental Protection Agency
  7. UltraCell- Advanced Cellulose Insulation

    SBC: ULTRACELL INSULATION, LLC            Topic: B

    Cellulose insulation is a well-established and $400M growing market. It is recognized for superior thermal insulating performance, its safety and its environmental benefits. UltraCell’s proprietary technology addresses two major issues facing the industry today: the decline in availability of newsprint as its primary feedstock and changes in OSHA labeling requirements scheduled for 2015. UltraC ...

  9. Series Resistance Reduction in Tunable Radio Frequency (RF) Capacitors

    SBC: PARATEK MICROWAVE, INC.            Topic: DMEA092001

    By attention to lattice parameter matching, thermal expansion coefficient mismatch reduction and composition of conducting epitaxial detemined.

  10. Ultra-high Speed High Brightness X-ray Source

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DMEA162001

    High brightness x ray sources are large and expensive due to the extreme thermal conditions produced when generating the x rays. Creare proposes to advance the brightness of x ray sources in the 9-11 keV range beyond the current state-of-the-art using an innovative thermal design that builds on Creares experience in high-heat flux thermal management, vacuum systems, and precision machinery. Duri ...
