  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 ...

  6. A Novel Diagnostic Assay for the Detection of Mycobacterium Tuberculosis

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: OSD11H05

    One in three humans currently living on earth are infected with Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the bacterium that causes tuberculosis. This number is astonishing and underscores our ever-increasing need for accurate and efficient tuberculosis diagnostics. This is especially true for the US military wherein troops are serving in areas around the world that have high tuberculosis incidence rates. While ...

  7. The PACeR Gold- Multiplex Pathogen Identification Platform for Detection of Mycobacterium Tuberculosis Infections.

    SBC: Accacia International LLC            Topic: OSD11H05

    The World Health Organization estimates that more than one-third of the worldwide population is infected with Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB), the causative agent of most cases of tuberculosis (TB). Patients who are infected with MTB, but do not have active TB disease have latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI), a non-communicable, asymptomatic condition which might develop into active TB disease m ...

  8. Development of an Alternative Screening Method for Detecting Evidence of Mycobacterium Tuberculosis Infections

    SBC: Bijhem Scientific            Topic: OSD11H05

    This Small Business Innovation research Phase I proposes the development of a practical and reliable in-vitro test for detecting the evidence of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) infection as an alternative to the tuberculin skin test (PPD-TST) and to the interferon gamma release assays (IGRAs). The proposed methodology will be a powerful detection technology in clinical diagnosis owing to its dete ...

  10. Remote Anger and Stress Management (M-SAT)

    SBC: Design Interactive, Inc            Topic: OSD11H13

    Anger and Stress are common symptoms that interfere with daily functioning for returning service members, more specifically ones that are suffering from posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Current mitigation efforts to help cope and treat these symptoms often rely on face-to-face treatment with a mental health treatment provider. Current stand-alone COTS treatment products for PTSD fall short ...
