  1. Dual Plane 3D Compton Scattering Imager with Pixelated CZT Detectors for 1-10MeV Gamma Ray

    SBC: H3D            Topic: None

    Phase I has proven that the current setup achieves better than 8mm spatial resolution for 2.2MeV prompt gammas. However, 1mm spatial resolution presents a significant challenge for the current setup due in part to limited timing resolution and count rate. A new analog ASIC will be developed to replace the current analog ASIC that will have better timing resolution and deliver higher count rates. I ...

  2. Compact Raman Fiber Optic Probe with Inline Spectral Filtering

    SBC: Nikira Labs Inc.            Topic: None

    In this Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) effort, Nikira Labs Inc. proposes to develop a compact Raman fiber optic probe with inline spectral filtering that improves fiber-coupled Raman measurements by filtering out Raman scattering from the excitation fiber and elastically scattered laser light from the collection fibers. The technology will enable compact fiber probes for Raman studies i ...

  3. Advanced Instrumentation for Non-Nulling Stack Velocity Testing

    SBC: AIRFLOW SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: None

    Industrial facilities, manufacturing plants, and electric power plants that burn fossil fuels exhaust the combustion products to atmosphere through their smokestacks. Stack pollutant emissions are quantified using manual testing methods developed in the 1960s, which are prone to error if non-axial flow exists in a stack.Recently, NIST has been working on an improved technique of performing 3D flow ...

  4. Continuous Monitoring of Natural Gas Infrastructure for Increased Community Resilience using Voltammetric Sensors

    SBC: FULLMOON SENSORS, INC.            Topic: None

    Fullmoon has the first chip-level sensors capable of identifying and quantifying molecules in the air. At the core of our technology are printed voltammetric sensors, which are operated using cyclic voltammetry, an electrochemical technique that probes for the redox potential, a unique signature of molecules. We have demonstrated this sensing principle for the detection of carbon monoxide and meth ...

  6. Tuning Germanium Crystal Reflectivity and Mosaic

    SBC: AdSem, Inc.            Topic: 9010861R

    This project is devoted to development of a manufacturing technique of slow neutron Germanium mosaic monochromators with reflectivity exceeding reflectivity of pyrolytic graphite crystals. The manufacturing technique utilizes optimized high temperature plastic deformation of large single Germanium crystals to produce mosaic monochromators. Preliminary test on 70 mm diameter Ge samples with 111 ori ...

  9. Large-Area, High-Uniformity Photodiodes for Infrared Trap Detectors

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: 9020168R

    methyst Research Inc. will design, fabricate and test a high uniformity, large area, low noise infrared trap-detector detector for the 1- 4.5 μm wavelength range. This state of the art detector will have a large area (e.g., 1-1.8 cm diameter active area) with a spatial variability of internal quantum efficiency of less than 0.1 % between 1 μm and 4.5 μm. In addition, the internal quantum effici ...
