  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 ...

  6. Development of the JoRT Platform for Realistic Joint Reduction Training

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: DHA173002

    Joint reduction is a key skill and is a core competency for orthopedic surgeons deploying as part of a trauma team.Current training options are limited to classroom instruction on uninjured persons due to lack of a suitable training simulator. The first true reduction performed by medical providers is on actual patients. This method of instruction prevents the trainee from developing the comfort a ...

  7. Chronological Sweat Sensor Patch for Real-Time Human Molecular Biomarker Monitoring

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: DHA18003

    Sweat contains biomarkers that give an indication of human cognitive levels. In this SBIR project TDA Research is developing a modular sweat sensor patch that has the capability to not only carry out real-time monitoring of select biomarkers, but also to collect multiple precisely time stamped chronological samples (50-150 Ls each) for off-line analysis in laboratory assays.In Phase I, we demonstr ...

  8. Rapid At-home Test for Monitoring Tacrolimus Levels in Plasma

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A18145

    Vascularized composite allotransplantation (VCA) is a surgical approach for the clinical management of non-salvagable injuries. Tissue rejection is a major issue for patients receiving VCA. Tacrolimus is the most common immunosuppressant employed to minimize tissue rejections in VCA. The safety and efficacy of tacrolimus, which has a narrow therapeutic window is particularly sensitive to proper ma ...

  10. Lightweight, Compact System for Generating Lactated Ringer's Solution

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: DHA172011

    Currently, deployed medics are required to transport, maintain and be resupplied with liquid-based medications and materials that are heavy, expensive to transport, perishable and may require refrigeration.Many medications and materials are or will soon be available in concentrated or dehydrated formularies that require sterile water for injection (SWFI) to rehydrate for immediate use, one of the ...
