  2. In-Field Detection Kit for Algal Bloom Toxins

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: 833

    Intelligent Optical Systems will develop an accurate, inexpensive, rapid, and quantitative device for the detection of harmful algal bloom toxins and toxigenic organisms. The device will be ideally suited for field use, and will provide information about multiple toxins in less than a few minutes. This portable device will obviate the need for laborious, time-consuming, and expensive laboratory ...

  3. Detectors with Integrated Filters for Solar VUV Observations

    SBC: International Radiation Detectors, Inc.            Topic: 816

    Fabrication of stable, nearly 100% internal carrier collection efficiency silicon photodiodes (AXUV diodes) for 1 nm to 600 nm photons was successfully demonstrated by us several years ago. Owing to their excellent characteristics, these devices are being used by NIST as transfer standards in 5 nm to 250 nm range and aboard SOHO, SNOE and TIMED instruments for the EUV solar spectrum studies. Alt ...

  4. An Innovative Raster-Mirror Optical Detection System for CCD Camera Bistatic Lidar

    SBC: Metrolaser, Inc.            Topic: 812

    An innovative optical system with 500X higher ¿tendu and spatial resolution will be designed for CCD-based bistatic lidar. A 100¿ vertical field of view is required to image the laser beam from the ground through the boundary layer, but only a few degrees are required in the horizontal direction. The proposed design is based on dividing the vertical field of view into N sectors, using 1D rasteri ...

  6. An Autonomous Gas Chromatograph for Measurement of Greenhouse Gases in Airborne Applications

    SBC: Sonoma Technology, Inc.            Topic: 815

    An automated, high precision, lightweight gas chromatograph, capable of measuring hydrogen (H2), methane (CH4), carbon monoxide (CO) and carbon dioxide (CO2) with a fast duty cycle (1 sample per two minutes) will be designed and built. The detector used for the chromatograph will be an electron capture detector with sensitivity enhanced by addition of nitrous oxide (N2O) reagent gas. The instrum ...

  7. Multipath Reducing GPS Receiver and Antenna

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 841

    Toyon Research Corporation proposes to design an improved GPS receiver and GPS antenna to reduce installation-dependent errors due to multipath. To develop the receiver, we will prototype and implement various interference cancellation algorithms on a software-defined radio simulation toolkit and hardware testbed. We will design an antenna complementary to this receiver that will suppress signals ...

  8. Construction of a Force Probe for Characterization of Microscale Features

    SBC: INSITUTEC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The pressing need exists within industry to accurately measure high aspect ratio microscale structures. For example, diesel injector nozzles are manufactured with microscale holes ranging from 50-200 micrometers in diameter and 3-5 mm depths. One fundamental challenge is to nondestrucvely measure these features in order to validate models, enhance manufacturing processes, and reduce fuel emissions ...

  9. Large Solid Angle X-Ray Detector for Electron Microscopy

    SBC: Radiant Detector Technologies, Llc            Topic: N/A

    One of the standard analytical tools on almost all electron microscopes (EM) is an energy dispersive x-ray spectroscopy (EDS) detector used for chemical analysis. However, there are many limitations with the current generation of EDS detectors for EM. The best potential for achieving larger detector active areas, superb energy resolution and an order of magnitude higher count rate compared with co ...
