  1. Multimode Chiroptical Spectrometer for Nanoparticle Characterization

    SBC: Applied Nanofluorescence LLC            Topic: None

    This project will develop a new scientific instrument optimized for the advanced characterization of near-infrared fluorescent nanoparticles that can exist as left- or right-handed structures (enantiomers). Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) are the leading current example of such nanomaterials. Applied NanoFluorescence, LLC (ANF) proposes a novel multi-mode chiroptical spectrometer that can ...

  3. Nanomachine Device for Semiconductor Process Control Monitoring

    SBC: Xallent LLC            Topic: None

    Conventional characterization and test methods are increasingly ineffective when applied to structures less than 100 nanometers, causing challenges across R&D, process control and failure analysis. An increasing number of subtle defects become prominent drivers of failure as device size and operating margins decrease, e.g., processing anomalies in thin gate oxides, substrate problems related to do ...

  4. Gap-Free Model-Based Engineering for Manufacturing and Analysis: Digital Thread without Translation

    SBC: Nvariate, Inc.            Topic: None

    Modern Model-Based Enterprise / Engineering (MBE) systems rely on freeform surfaces built as complex combinations of geometric primitives to define engineered objects. Unfortunately, the intersection of freeform surfaces in MBE applications results in highly approximated solutions, degrading models that cost billions annually by US industry to fix. Current technology limits the abilities of users ...

  5. Easy-to-use, Autonomous Bin-picking and Assembly Operations for the Manufacturing Industry

    SBC: Robotic Materials Inc.            Topic: None

    We will develop a series of object manipulation primitives to pick up and assemble standard mechanical parts such as screws, gears and pulleys that can be configured without any programming skills. Building up on a smart robotic gripper, 3D perception and machine learning algorithms, we will design a graphical user interface for the Universal Robot E-Series that allows an user to label arbitrary 3 ...

  7. Teacher Dashboard and Student Feedback Tools

    SBC: Vidcode Inc.            Topic: 91990019R0012

    In previous research and development, the developers created VidCode, a website where students in grades 4 to 12 manipulate digital media assets such as photos, audio, and graphics to create special effects in videos while learning about the code responsible for the action. VidCode is currently in widespread use in schools and districts around the country. In this project, the team will develop a ...

  8. A More PerfectUnion

    SBC: GIGANTIC MECHANIC LLC            Topic: 91990019R0012

    In this project, the developers will create A More Perfect Union, a tablet-based and class wide role-playing game for high school students. Using any web browser, teachers will access a library of simulations on a range of topics drawn from the AP U.S. History Curriculum and Common Core History Standards. The website will provide resources to guide implementation, including videos, individualized ...
