  1. DEVELOPMENT OF NB(X)TI(1-X)O(2-D) SEMICONDUCTING ELECTRODES FOR PHOTOELECTROLYSIS OF WATER

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: N/A

    HARNESSING SOLAR ENERGY AS AN INEXHAUSTIBLE AND INEXPENSIVE SOURCE OF ENERGY HAS BEEN A GOAL OF MANKIND FOR CENTURIES. ONE OF THE MOST PROMISING SCHEMES NOW DEVISED TO HARNESS SOLAR ENERGY IS THE PHOTOELECTROLYTIC DECOMPOSITION OF WATERUSING SEMICONDUCTING ELECTRODES. ONE OF THE MAJOR PROBLEMS LIMITING INITIATION OF PRACTICAL PHOTOELECTROLYSIS IS ASSOCIATED WITH THE FACT THAT ONLY SEMICONDUCTING E ...

  6. SBIR Phase II: Fluorescent Polymeric Nanoparticles

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will develop a new generation of fluorescence amplifying reagents based on poly (phenylene ethynylene (PPE)) nanoparticles. Because of the role of the amplifying polymer in the enhanced sensitivity of these compounds, these compounds are called Amplimer reagents. The project will develop and launch two types of Amplimer reagents: mic ...

  8. ENERGY-EFFICIENT CONCEPT FOR GRINDING ROCKS AND ORES

    SBC: Terra Tek Inc.            Topic: N/A

    IN THE UNITED STATES, THE TECHNOLOGY FOR COMMINUTION OF ORESAND OTHER MATERIALS HAS BEEN ESSENTIALLY STAGNANT FOR THE LAST CENTURY. THE GRINDING MILLS USED ARE LESS THAN 5 PER CENT EFFICIENT IN TERMS OF ENERGY USAGE AND THEY CONSUME AN ESTIMATED 15 BILLION KWH OF ELECTRICAL ENERGY PER ANNUM. PROPOSED HEREIN IS A LABORATORY INVESTIGA- TION AIMED AT EVALUATING A SIMPLE AND NOVEL ALTERNATIVE AP- PROA ...

  9. RECYCLING EXISTING SEAL COAT PAVEMENTS THROUGH STABILIZATION WITH SELF CEMENTING FLY ASH

    SBC: Terracon Consultants Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE PURPOSE OF THE PROPOSED RESEARCH IS TO EVALUATE THE FEASIBILITY OF RECYCLING EXISTING SEAL COAT PAVEMENTS THROUGH STABILIZATION WITH SELF CEMENTING FLY ASH. IT IS PROPOSED THAT THE EXISTING PAVEMENTS CAN BE PULVERIZED IN PLACE, SUFFICIENT QUANTITIES OF CLASS "C" FLY ASH AND WATER ADDED, AND THE RESULTING MIXTURE BE COMPACTED. THE STABILIZED SECTION COULD THEN BE UTILIZED AS A BASE COURSE SECTI ...
