  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. 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 ...

  3. Development of a Neutron-based Nondestructive Test Method for Concrete Petrography and Chemical Analysis

    SBC: TOURNEY CONSULTING GROUP, LLC            Topic: None

    To evaluate the technical feasibility of prompt gamma neutron activation (PGAA) as an alternative to a set of standard destructive tests of concrete petrography including aggregate type, water/cement ratio, aggregate/binder ratio, density, chloride content and chloride bulk diffusion constant; and to determine the specifications for the design of a dedicated commercial laboratory-based PGAA facili ...

  4. Next-generation cell-free prototyping and biomanufacturing platform

    SBC: BIODISCOVERY LLC            Topic: SB152001

    Cell-free expression systems are becoming robust platforms to reduce system complexity, to use toxic and non-naturally occurring compounds or to produce metabolic intermediates, proteins and molecules that are otherwise toxic to cells. Unfortunately, current cell-free expression platforms are often inconsistent, low scale, not flexible, poorly characterized and limited to relatively simple biologi ...

  5. Maximizing graph programming parallelism via cellular automata

    SBC: Complex Computation, LLC            Topic: SB152004

    Cellular automata are computer-theoretical models originally developed by computing pioneer John von Neumann in 1950s to study self-reproduction computing machines. Cellular automata are massively parallel, regularly connected and allow only local data exchanges between cells. Cellular automata computation models map perfectly to modern many-core computing hardware. Opportunities have arrived to ...

  6. Broadband Self-calibrated Rydberg-based RF Electric Field and Power Sensor

    SBC: Rydberg Technologies LLC            Topic: SB152003

    Initial research and development towards a self-calibrated Rydberg-atom-based electric-field and power sensor for microwave and THz radiation is conducted. The sensor operates on atomic-physics and quantum-optics principles, especially electromagnetically induced transparency. Infrared and visual solid-state laser systems are employed to measure the energy levels of Rydberg atoms in room-temperatu ...

  7. Ovenized Inertial Micro-Sensors

    SBC: EVIGIA SYSTEMS INC            Topic: SB152005

    This proposed SBIR Phase I effort initiates the development of ovenized inertial MEMS sensors (OI-MEMS) to achieve the tactical performance requirements of MEMS inertial measurement units (IMUs), in particular bias and scale factor stability for military, aerospace and high-end industrial and commercial markets. The primary outcome of the proposed effort is a 6-axis OI-MEMS IMU fabricated with a b ...

  8. Ovenized Inertial Micro Electro Mechanical Systems

    SBC: EPACK, INC.            Topic: SB152005

    Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) inertial (motion) sensors are now used for a wide range of consumer and industrial applications, but cant be used for many precision navigation applications because of their inaccuracy. In particular, the measurement (bias) stability of MEMS gyroscopes generally have temperature sensitivities of 10-100 degrees/hour/degree Celsius. This mean that even with smal ...

  10. Combined Extinction/Fluorescence Absorption Diagnostics for Sprays

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: 9030163R

    This Phase II project will continue the prototype development of a pharmaceutical spray quality audit system. The spray quality audit system will estimate the planar mass distribution, mass flux, and drop size of pharmaceutical sprays that are used in functional coating applications and inhalers. A prototype tomography system will be designed and fabricated and evaluated using various fluorophore.
