  1. Fulcrum Biometrics' Plan for Research and Development of WS-BD Conformant Handheld Fingerprint Sensor

    SBC: Fulcrum Biometrics, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Trusted biometric validation of individual identities has never been more important. Several contributing factors are the increase in global terrorism, identity theft and the increase in legislation which are driving the accelerated adoption of biometric technology. Unfortunately, the biometrics industry has not actively responded to the changing market conditions being driven by the explosion in ...

  2. Improved Microcalorimeter Detectors for X-Ray Chemical Shift Mapping

    SBC: STAR CRYOELECTRONICS LLC            Topic: N/A

    X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy is a widely used and extremely sensitive analytical technique for qualitative as well as quantitative chemical analysis. Superconducting Transition Edge Sensor (TES) microcalorimeter detectors have now been developed that achieve an energy resolution of 2 eV (full width at half maximum) for 1.5 keV X-rays, which is sufficient to enable the measurement of the small s ...

  3. 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 ...

  5. Precision 10 kV Programmable Voltage Source

    SBC: Low Thermal Electronics, Inc.            Topic: NA

    Low Thermal Electronics, Inc. proposes to design a stand-alone, programmable voltage source capable of supplying precision voltages in the range of zero to 1,000 volts direct current (DC), with options for scaling up to 10,000 volts, and with a total expanded uncertainty (k=2) of less than 10uV/V for the 10,000 volt version. This instrument will improve state-of-the-art measurements in high resist ...

  6. A HIGH-EFFICIENCY TECHNIQUE FOR STEAMFLOODING DEEP, HEAVY OIL RESERVOIRS

    SBC: Carbotek Inc            Topic: N/A

    A STEAMFLOODING/STEAM GENERATION SYSTEM IS PROPOSED FOR DEEP, HEAVY OIL RESERVOIRS. THIS CONCEPT MINIMIZES THE DOWNHOLE HEAT LOSSES, IMPROVES RELIABILITY AND REDUCES THE COST OF STEAM GENERATION. ITS FEATURES WILL MAKE STEAMING OF VERY DEEP WELLS (BELOW 7500 FEET) TECHNICALLY AND ECONOMICALLY FEASIBLE, AND WILL IMPROVE THE ECONOMICS OF SHALLOWER WELL STEAMFLOODING. THIS NOVEL CONCEPT SUPPLIES HEAT ...

  8. RAPID MULTIPLE CHOPSTICK WATER SAMPLER

    SBC: General Oceanics Inc            Topic: N/A

    A FREE FALL WATER SAMPLER BASED ON THE CHOPSTICK WATER SAMPLER BAG WILL BE DEVELOPED. THIS PORCUPINE SAMPLER WILL BE CAPABLE OF TAKING UP TO 36 THREE LITER WATER SAMPLES AT DEPTHS CONTROLLED FROM THE SURFACE, OR AT DEPTHS DETERMINED BY AN INTERNAL CONTROLLER. THE SAMPLE WILL BE OPTIMIZED FORMINIMUM TRAVEL TIME FROM THE SURFACE TO THE BOTTOM AND BACK SO THAT THE CURRENT FOUR HOUR ON STATION TIME FO ...

  9. A MICROCOMPUTER-BASED DNA GEL ELECTROPHORESIS IMAGE ANALYSIS

    SBC: Genetics Data Services Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT IS TO DESIGN AND CONSTRUCT A MICROCOMPUTER-BASED INSTRUMENT FOR QUANTITATING SIZE DISTRIBUTIONS OF NUCLEIC ACIDS (DNA AND RNA) SEPARATED ACCORDING TO SIZE BY GEL ELECTROPHORESIS. THE STARTING POINT FOR ANALYSIS OF FLUORESCENCE-STAINED DNA IN GELS WILL BE THE IMAGE DIGITIZATION OF THE ENTIRE GEL ELECTROPHORETIC PATTERN (OR SPECIFIED PORTIONS OF IT) SO THAT THE RELATIVE INTENSITIES OF F ...

  10. METHODS OF REDUCTION OF WIND-INDUCED DYNAMIC RESPONSE IN SOLAR CONCENTRATORS AND OTHER SMALL LIGHTWEIGHT STRUCTURES

    SBC: Lajet Energy Co            Topic: N/A

    RECENT WIND TUNNEL STUDIES ON SOLAR CONCENTRATOR STRUCTURES INDICATE THAT STRUCTURES WITH LOW DAMPING PROPERTIES ARE POTENTIALLY SUSCEPTIBLE TO THE SPECTRAL NATURE OF ATMOSPHERIC WIND LOADING. SOLAR CONCENTRATORS ARE SENSITIVE TO DEFLECTIONS IN OPTICAL MOUNTING AND TRACKING SYSTEMS; CONSEQUENTLY, STRUCTURES AND DRIVES WITH SUFFICIENT RIGIDITY TO RESIST DYNAMICALLY INDUCED LOADING WITH MINIMAL DEFL ...
