  1. 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 ...

  3. Filovirus drug discovery using novel combinations of approved drugs

    SBC: APATH, LLC            Topic: CBD05119

    The goal of this proposal is find novel combinations of approved drugs for the treatment and/or prevention of infection with filoviruses. Ebola and Marburg viruses, the only filoviruses, cause an acute hemorrhagic fever syndrome which has a high mortality rate and poses a significant bio-terrorism threat. There are currently no therapeutic agents available to treat filovirus infections and the de ...

  5. Hermetic Textile Closure Hardware System

    SBC: SIGMA K CORP            Topic: CBD04110

    Effective collective protection fabrics must have a reliable closure system. During our Phase I Work Plan, Sigma-K began developing a Hermetic Textile Closure Hardware (HATCH) system. The HATCH combines both a magnetic and geometric self locking mechanism that will provide a hermetic seal when closed. Our current Phase I successes include developing self closing samples that can provide a hermetic ...

  6. High Throughput Microcantilever-Based Detection of Antigen-Antibody Binding

    SBC: Femtogen            Topic: 05c

    79108S DNA and protein chip microarray technology relies upon fluorescent labels to visualize DNA hybridization and antigen/antibody binding. A recent breakthrough at Oak Ridge National Laboratory has demonstrated the possibility of label-free detection of DNA hybridization using a microcantilever as the "chip reader." A label-free analyte sensing system would: (1) solve the problem with photob ...

  7. Real-Time Elemental Analysis of Particle and Gaseous Effluent

    SBC: Inovatia Laboratories, Llc            Topic: 11a

    78617S The DOE is interested in reducing the emission of particulate matter in gaseous effluent from both thermal and non-thermal treatment facilities, including coal-fired power plants, incinerators, metals manufacturing, chemical plants, and nuclear treatment facilities. Progress in this area will require the development of instruments to monitor the mass and composition these particulates. T ...

  8. Low Cost Carbon Fiber Composites for Lightweight Vehicle Parts

    SBC: MATERIAL INNOVATIONS, INCORPORATED            Topic: 27

    78845S The Department of Energy desires to increase fuel efficiency by reducing vehicle weight. Carbon fiber composites offer one promising way to do this, but difficulties in building economical, consistent, high quality preforms has limited the introduction of this material. This project will to adapt a well established pulp molding technology to produce carbon fiber preforms for lightweight ...

  9. High Resolution Seismometer Insensitive to Magnetic Fields for the Linear Collider Program (Currently ILC)

    SBC: Pmd Scientific, Inc.            Topic: 07d

    75225S The elevated level of vibrations complicates the achievement of sub-nanometer stability for the final focusing lenses in supercolliders. This project will develop a radiation-hardened seismic (vibration) sensor, with sub-nanometer precision and fully immune to strong magnetic fields, for monitoring the stability of the final focusing lenses. In Phase I, two electrochemical prototype sens ...

  10. A Robust Microfabricated Specimen Support with Integrated Capabilities for In-Situ Experimentation in the Transmission Electron Microscope

    SBC: PROTOCHIPS, INC.            Topic: 23

    79454S Despite advances in modern electron optics, which have permitted observation with unprecedented resolutions, most materials science research involves the quantification of static properties of materials. This is mostly due to limitations in modern day equipment and the time and cost associated with modifying existing microscopes. Consequently a need exists to extend the current ability t ...
