  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 ...

  6. Light-weight Low-volume High Oxygen Storage Density Material for Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: CBD12105

    This proposal details the method of fabrication for a hierarchical hybrid nanomaterial for oxygen storage vessels. These vessels exceed the volumetric and gravimetric storage capacity of an oxygen cylinder by 330% and 215%, respectively. It is estimated that this oxygen storage device will weigh about 12% of a standard low pressure 2216 psi O2 cylinder and be only 4% of the total volume. The oxyg ...

  8. Efficient Materials for Optical Cryocoolers

    SBC: ThermoDynamic Films LLC            Topic: CBD171001

    This Phase-I SBIR proposal directly addresses the need to improve the size, weight and power, SWaP, of optical cryocoolers. In particular, the proposers will work toward increasing the efficiency of optical cryocoolers by incorporating cooling materials that require less input laser power to achieve a given heat lift. The new cooling materials will be high-purity crystals doped with active rare-ea ...

  9. Mainstream Engineering Corporation

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: CBD14103

    The technology pathway to transition the successful CO2 removal system into small-scale production, and address technical hurdlesassociated with manufacturing, is outlined in this proposal. The electrochemical CO2 removal system generates no heat as it separates CO2from the humid breathing gas mixture. In parallel, a breath monitoring micro-sensor array to measure temperature, humidity, CO2, and O ...
