  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 ...

  7. NOISE SUPPRESSOR DEVELOPMENT- QUITE VALVES FOR AIR PRESSURE REDUCTION MANIFOLDS

    SBC: American Energy Valve Co            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL WILL DEMONSTRATE (IN 2" TO 4" SIZE), A NOISE REUCING TRIM THAT CAN BE UTILIZED IN ROTARY CONTROL/ON-OFF BALL VALVES. THIS VALVE TRIM ADDRESSES NOISE AT THE SOURCE. THE BASIC DESIGN HAS A VARIABLE IMPEDENCE TRIM TO CAUSE A HIGH IMPEDENCE AT LOW ANGLES OF OPENING AND LOW IMPEDENCE (VERY LITTLE FLOW RESTRICTION) AT LARGE OPENING ANGLES. IT IS AN IDEAL VALVE FOR PRESSURIZATION/DE-PRESSUR ...

  10. LOW FREQUENCY UNDERWATER SOUND CALIBRATION SOURCE

    SBC: Argotec Inc            Topic: N/A

    MOVING-COIL TRANSDUCERS ARE USUALLY ASSOCIATED WITH LOW POWER, LOW EFFICIENCY, BROADBAND AND VERY LOW FREQUENCY APPLICATIONS. THE RECENT INTRODUCTION OF RARE EARTH PERMANENT MAGNETIC MATERIALS HAVING HIGH ENERGY DENSITIES AND THE RECENT DEVELOPMENT OF BETTER DESIGN TECHNIQUES SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVE EFFICIENCY, POWER HANDLING ABILITY, AND HIGH FREQUENCY OPERATION. THE APPLICATION OF THESE IMPROVEMEN ...
