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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. A NOVEL DETECTOR FOR NEUTRON DIFFRACTION STUDIES

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

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP A NEW TYPE OF LARGE AREA POSITION SENSITIVE NEUTRON DETECTOR FOR USE IN DIFFRACTION STUDIES. THE DETECTOR WOULD USE A LIQUID CRYSTAL SENSING MECHNISM TO PROVIDE A LARGE AREA HIGH RESOLUTION (COMPARABLE TO PHOTOGRAPHIC METHODS) DETECTORS WHICH WOULD BE INEXPENSIVE TO PRODUCE. TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF THIS CONCEPT IN PHASE I, SEVERAL TECHNICAL A ...

  10. WET COUNTERCURRENT OPEN GRADIENT MAGNETIC SEPARATION OF PYRITE FROM COAL

    SBC: Allied Energy Systems Inc            Topic: N/A

    THIS RESEARCH PROGRAM WILL DEMONSTRATE THE TECHNICAL AND ECONOMIC FEASIBILITY OF THE PROPOSED MAGNETIC SEPARATOR ON PULVERIZED COAL. A THEORETICAL COMPARISON OF THE PROPOSED SEPARATOR WITH WORK PUBLISHED ON OPEN GRADIENT MAGNETIC SEPARATION BY THE OAK RIDGE NATIONAL LABORATORY INDICATES THAT THE SEPARATOR WILL HAVE HIGH LEVELS OF ASH CLEANING. THIS IS BECAUSE OF ITS COUNTERCURRENT PRINCIPLE OF OPE ...
