  1. SBIR Phase II: Functionally Graded Cemented Tungsten Carbide-- Process and Properties

    SBC: HEAVYSTONE LABORATORY LLC            Topic: PhaseII

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project aims to develop an innovative process which can transform conventional cemented tungsten carbide (WC-Co), the most widely used industrial tool material, into functionally graded cemented tungsten carbide (FG WC-Co). Compared to the homogeneous structure of conventional WC-Co, FG WC-Co has a harder surface and tougher core due to a gra ...

  2. SBIR Phase II: Materials for Renewable Energy Systems

    SBC: Oscilla Power, Inc.            Topic: PhaseII

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will demonstrate a prototype wave energy harvester using advanced materials developed in the Phase I effort. We have developed a patented concept for wave energy harvesting using low-cost magnetostrictive alloys. This technology shows promise as a means for delivering utility-scale electric power to the grid at a price that is competi ...

  3. SBIR Phase II: Commutational Ramp Load Disk Drive Actuator

    SBC: BLW            Topic: PhaseII

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will design, build, test, and validate a fully operational prototype disk drive incorporating a commutational ramp load actuator (CRLA). The CRLA is a unique and transformative actuator for disk drives that provides significant improvements over existing actuator technology by increasing performance and reducing cost. The research obj ...

  4. SBIR Phase I: High-speed low-cost spectral domain optical coherence tomography system for intravascular imaging applications

    SBC: WASATCH PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project seeks to demonstrate that 840 nm spectral domain optical coherence tomography (OCT) can provide images equal to or better than those currently available from swept source OCT, with the added advantages of higher imaging speeds and lower cost. Intravascular OCT is poised for commercial growth, but is still limited by technical complexit ...

  5. SBIR Phase I: Robust Molecular Sensors for Trace Mercury Detection

    SBC: MetalloSensors            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop new sensor materials for detection of trace mercury in water systems, based on a patent-pending technique licensed by MetalloSensors. This technique at its current stage provides both high sensitivity (with detection limit as low as in sub ppb) and selectivity (against other common coexisting metal ions), demonstrating pro ...

  6. SBIR Phase I: Planar ZEBRA Battery Development

    SBC: Materials and Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project is on the development of a planar, highly compact, sodium-beta rechargeable battery using sodium-ion conducting beta alumina solid electrolyte disc (Na-BASE) sandwiched between a liquid sodium and a nickel chloride salt, (p-ZEBRA battery). All commercially available sodium-beta battery technologies use thick Na-BASE tubes, resulting in ...

  8. SBIR Phase I: Novel method for Direct Frequency Component Decomposition: Electronic Neural Loops (ENLs).

    SBC: Variance Dynamical            Topic: IC

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project proposes to perform fundamental research into a novel method for signal analysis, using standing waves. The intellectual merit of this proposal is the development of an innovative set of physical design rules which could lead to seamless spectral component analysis of arbitrarily complex analog signals. Fourier analysis is a ubiquitous ...

  9. SBIR Phase I: Acoustic Slurry Monitor

    SBC: Uncopiers, Inc.            Topic: IC

    This SBIR Phase-I project is to develop an acoustic CMP (Chemical Mechanical Polishing) slurry monitor?a fully in-line, real-time, point of use instrument that will detect and disperse any and all large agglomerates in the nanofine slurries used in IC manufacture. Left unchecked, these errant slurry particles/ agglomerates can "kill" (deeply scratch) a semiconductor wafer as it undergoes chemical ...

  10. SBIR Phase I: Compact Terahertz Backward-Wave Oscillators

    SBC: Terahertz Device Corp.            Topic: IC

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will investigate the feasibility of implementing new slow-wave circuits and electron beam confinement innovations for terahertz frequency backward-wave oscillators. A backward wave oscillator emits high- frequency radio waves, tuned by the applied voltage, at frequencies and powers generally higher than available from semiconductor-bas ...
