The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY20 is not expected to be complete until September, 2021.

Download all SBIR.gov award data either with award abstracts (290MB) or without award abstracts (65MB). A data dictionary and additional information is located on the Data Resource Page. Files are refreshed monthly.

  1. A Low Level Tritium Monitor Based on a Multi-Phase Scintillator Material

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    41068 November 20, 1996 Aerodyne Research, Inc. Scintillation phosphors, materials commonly used in particle detectors, emit a photon of light when struck by a subatomic particle, and the light flashes are counted as an indicator of atomic decay. This project will explore the feasibility of monitoring tritium by using an ultra low density (milligrams per ...

  4. A POSITION SENSITIVE NEUTRON DETECTOR USING BORON PHOSPHIDE SEMICONDUCTOR SENSORS

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    TRADITIONAL POSITION-SENSITIVE NEUTRON DETECTORS USE EITHER GAS FILLED TUBES OR SCINTILLATOR-PHOTOMULTIPLIER TUBE COMBINATIONS. ALTHOUGH BOTH OF THESE TECHNOLOGIES HAVE RESULTED IN SUCCESSFUL POSITION-SENSITIVE NEUTRON DETECTORS,THEY HAVE A VARIETY OF INTRINSIC DEFICIENCIES. THIS PROJECTINVOLVES THE CONSTRUCTION OF NEW POSITION-SENSITIVE NEUTRON DETECTORS FROM SOLID STATE DETECTOR ELEMENTS MADE FR ...

  5. THALLIUM BROMOIODIDE DETECTORS FOR SCINTILLATION SPECTROSCOPY

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SCINTILLATION DETECTORS REMAIN THE LEADING TYPE OF DETECTOR IN MANY AREAS OF NUCLEAR PHYSICS. ALTHOUGH IMPROVEMENTS IN SCINTILLATOR CRYSTAL TECHNOLOGY HAVE EXTENDED THE UTILITY OFSCINTILLATOR SYSTEMS, SERIOUS DEFICIENCIES IN THE OPTICAL DETECTORS USED WITH SCINTILLATION CRYSTALS LIMIT THE TECHNOLOGY'S FULL POTENTIAL. CONVENTIONAL SCINTILLATION SYSTEMS USE PHOTOMULTIPLIER TUBES OR SILICON DIODES AS ...

  6. LARGE AREA POSITION SENSITIVE DETECTOR FOR SYNCHROTRON X-RAY DIFFRACTION

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE AVAILABILITY OF HIGH INTENSITY, SYNCHROTRON SOURCES TO PRODUCE HIGH FLUX, MONOCHROMATIC X-RAY BEAMS HAS RESULTEDIN IMPORTANT ADVANCES IN THE STUDY AND DETERMINATION OF THE STRUCTURE OF LARGE, FRAGILE BIOLOGICAL MACROMOLECULES. ALTHOUGH THESE SOURCES REPRESENT A MAJOR ADVANCE IN TECHNOLOGY, AT PRESENT THERE ARE NO LARGE AREA DETECTORS WITH BOTH THE HIGH FLUX CAPABILITY AND GOOD SPATIAL RESOLUTI ...

  7. AN INTGRATED VIDEO AND GAMMA RAY IMAGING SYSTEM FOR ROBOTS IN NUCLEAR ENVIRONMENTS

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ROBOTS ARE BECOMING INCREASINGLY IMPORTANT THROUGHOUT THE NUCLEAR INDUSTRY. THEY ARE COMMONLY USED TO IMPROVE OPERATIONS AND MAINTENANCE, LOWER OPERATING COSTS, ENHANCE WORKER SAFETY, AND REDUCE RADIATION EXPOSURE TO WORKERS. HOWEVER, THE CAPABILITIES OF EXISTING ROBOTS ARE LIMITEDBY THE SYSTEMS USED TO SENSE THEIR SURROUNDINGS. ALTHOUGH EXISTING ROBOTS OFTEN HAVE VISUAL IMAGING SYSTEMS AND NUCLEA ...

  8. A ROOM TEMPERATURE,LOW NOISE SILICON PHOTODIODE FOR POSITRON EMISSION TOMOGRAPHY

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    POSITRON EMISSION TOMOGRAPHY (PET) IS A NON-INVASIVE MEDICAL IMAGING TECHNIQUE, WHICH PROVIDES AN IMAGE OF A POSITRON EMITTING RADIO PHARMACEUTICAL AND ITS DISTRIBUTION IN THE BODY ON A METABOLIC LEVEL. AT THE PRESENT TIME, THE PERFORMANCE OF THIS INSTRUMENT IS LIMITED BY THE NUCLEAR SENSORS USED. RESEARCHERS HAVE DEVELOPED A PROMISING DUAL DETECTOR CONCEPT FOR GENERATING HIGH RESOLUTION POSITRO ...

  9. LOW COST AVALANCHE PHOTODIODES FOR SCINTILLATION DETECTION

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SILICON AVALANCHE PHOTODIODES (APDS) HAVE BEEN SHOWN TO BE NEARLY AN IDEAL REPLACEMENT FOR PHOTOMULTIPLIER TUBES (PMTS) IN SCINTILLATION DETECTION APPLICATIONS. HOWEVER, BECAUSE OF THEIR GREAT EXPENSE (TYPICALLY APDS COST TEN TIMES AS MUCH AS AN EQUIVALENT PMT) APDS HAVE NOT BEEN WIDELY USED. THE HIGH COST OF APDS IS DUE TO THE LOW YIELD, LABOR-INTENSIVE MANUFACTURING PROCESS USED TO PRODUCE THE ...

  10. A NOVEL SOLID STASTE ULTRAVIOLET DETECTOR FOR SCINTILLATION READOUT

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE OVERALL PERFORMANCE AND USEFULNESS OF SCINTILLATOR DETECTORS ARE OFTEN LIMITED BY THE EFFICIENCY OF LIGHT COLLECTION BY THE PHOTOSENSOR USED IN CONJUNCTION WITH THEM. MOST SCINTILLATORS THAT EMIT IN THE ULTRAVIOLET REGION (UV) HAVE NOT BEEN FULLY EXPLOITED, CHIEFLY DUE TO THE DIFFICULTY OF MEASURING THE LIGHT OUTPUT IN THAT RANGE. FOR EXAMPLE, BAF2 IS AN ATTRACTIVE SCINTILLATION DETECTOR FOR ...
