  1. IN-SITU OPTICAL DIAGNOSIS AND CONTROL OF PULSED LASER DEPOSITION OF HIGH TC SUPERCONDUCTOR THIN FILMS

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ALTHOUGH MANY POTENTIAL TECHNOLOGIES EXIST FOR DEPOSITING EXOTIC THIN FILM DEVICES, CONTROLLING THE MATERIAL PROPERTIES HAS BEEN A MAJOR STUBLING BLOCK TO ACHIEVING SUCCESSFUL AND REPRODUCIBLE DEVICE PROPERTIES. IN THE CASE OF PULSED LASER DEPOSITION (PLD) OF HIGH TC SUPERCONDUCTOR FILMS, THE EMISSION OF THE PLASMA CAN BE CORRELATED WITH THE QUALITY OF FILMS DEPOSITED. BUT THIS MEASUREMENT PROVIDE ...

  3. A Ruggedized System for Measuring Extreme Winds

    SBC: Caregiver Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We will develop technology, termed a Ruggedized Wind Measurement System (RWMS), to measure directly extreme winds with high space and time resolution, focusing on the winds that occur beneath hurricanes at land fall. This development effort will include design, fabrication of two prototype RWMS units, and a series of proof-of-concept demonstrations in strong mountain-induced downslope and severe t ...

  4. Optical Water Level Sensor

    SBC: CIENCIA INC            Topic: N/A

    Development of an optical water level sensor is proposed to solve some of the problems and limitations of current sounding tube/protective well acoustic sensors. By using light instead of sound, temperature gradient effects on the measurement are obviated. Furthermore, the proposed system eliminates the need for a sounding tube, protective well and associated temperature sensors, and does not requ ...

  5. NO MOVING PARTS RAIN GAUGE

    SBC: THE CORE GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE U.S. WEATHER SERVICE PRESENTLY USES A "TIPPING BUCKET" RAIN GAUGE FOR MEASURING RAIN ACCUMULATION. THIS DEVICE IS SENSITIVE TO WIND AND MOTION (AS ON BUOYS), CANNOT MEASURE RAIN RATE, AND REQUIRES FREQUENT MAINTENANCE, BECAUSE OF MOVING PARTS. AN ALTERNATIVE DEVICE IS BEING PROPOSED, WHICH INCORPORATES A RIGID, RESONANT TUBE, CLOSED AT THE TOP BY AN ELECTRO-ACOUSTIC TRANSDUCER, AND AT THE BOTT ...

  6. Quantitative Techniques for Surface Characterization and Solderability Assessments of OSP- Coated Printed Wiring Board

    SBC: ECI TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Objectives of this project include the development of electrochemical techniques for measurement of (i) thinckness of OSP coatings, (ii) amount and type of copper oxides within and under the OSP coating, (iii) protective effectiveness of OSP coatings, and (iv) solderability prediction of OSP-coated PWBs. We will evaluate the effect of major parameters of the coating, storage, and soldering proces ...

  7. Analysis Software for Near-Field Optical Microscopes

    SBC: Field Precision            Topic: N/A

    The near-field scanning optical microscope can supply information on the shape and electrical properties of surfaces with nanometer resolution. The quantitative interpretation of images is difficult because of the difficulty of electromagnetic field solutions in the near-field limit. We propose to supply software to aid in this analysis. The finite-element programs generate two and three-dimension ...

  8. Controlled Spawning and Larviculture of Florida Pompano

    SBC: HarvestFresh Seafoods, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Development of technology for the predictable, natural spawning of captive Florida pompano (Trachinotus carolinus) utilizing photoperiod and temperature manipulation is propose, along with the subsequent larval rearing and fingerling production through a joint effort between HarvestFresh Seafoods, Inc., and the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Sciences at Texas A&M University. The pompano is a ...

  9. A Virtual Machining and Inspection System (VMIS)

    SBC: Icamp, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The purpose of the VMIS is to allow manufacturers the luxury of testing and perfecting manufacturing plans long before a single machine tool is turned on and resources are committed. The VMIS will allow the user to select an available machine tool and an available inspection device, specify a proposed inspection plan and a dimensional analysis procedure, and then build and inspect hundreds (or ev ...

  10. ADVANCED RESEARCH FOR DEVELOPMENT OF A HYBRID SMART CARD READER IN A PCMCIA FORMAT.

    SBC: International Micro Industries            Topic: N/A

    INTERNATIONAL MICRO INDUSTRIES (IMI) IS WELL QUALIFIED TO PERFORM THE SCIENTIFIC AND ENGINEERING RESEARCH (PHASE 1) REQUIRED TO DEFINE A HYBRID SMARTCARD READER (HSR) IN A PCMCIA CARD FORM FACTOR, AND TO DEVELOP IT IN PHASE 2. THE PROBLEM IS HOW TO PROCESS, INTERCONNECT AND ASSEMBLE A NUMBER OF HIGH PERFORMANCE, HIGH LEAD COUNT, KNOW-GOOD UNPACKAGED (NAKED) SEMICONDUCTOR CHIPS TO CREATE A HYBRID S ...
