  2. Efficient Extraction of Oil from Microalgae

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: 815

    Microalgae are a promising feedstock for biofuels because of their high oil content, excellent CO2 capture, and ability to use brackish water and non-arable land. The extraction of oil from algae represents a challenging cost barrier to commercial biofuel production. Conventional technologies for algal oil extraction are energy-inefficient, cost-intensive, or non scalable, leading to bar ...

  8. MEMS Lamellar Based Interferometer for the Detection of Toxic Chemicals

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: CBD10104

    Leveraging on Agiltron’s industry leading development of optical MEMS devices and the PI’s experience with FTIR spectrometer design, we propose to develop a new class of high performance compact and rugged FTIR spectrometers for LWIR optical range. The design is based on the MEMS lamellar mirror technique. Although this approach is not new, it has not yet been efficiently applied to LWIR, and ...

  9. Low noise longwave infrared (8-12µm) focal plane array with high sensitivity for passive hyperspectral standoff detection

    SBC: APPLIED NANOFEMTO TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: CBD10105

    Longwave infrared (LWIR, 8-12µm) focal plane arrays (FPAs) play an important role in hyperspectral chemical and biological sensing. Existing thermal detectors are unable to meet the high sensitivity and fast response requirements of many hyperspectral chemical and biological sensing applications. Photodetectors and FPAs based on photon excited electron generation process can fulfill the speed and ...

  10. High-Speed Resonant FTIR Spectrometer for Surface Contaminant Measurements

    SBC: Optra, Inc.            Topic: CBD09107

    OPTRA proposes the development of a high speed resonant Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectrometer for surface contaminant detection via thermal luminescence. The system will generate 10,000 spectra per second over the 7-14 m spectral range at 8 cm-1 spectral resolution; the NESR is projected at 4×10-9 W/(cm2•ster•cm-1) over a 100 s integration time. The key to the system is a res ...
