  1. NANOMETER-SIZE STEP HEIGHT TEST STRUCTURES

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    MCNC PROPOSES A FEASIBILITY STUDY AND EVALUATION OF THREE PROMISING APPROACHES TO THE FABRICATION OF SURFACE TEST STRUCTURES ON SILICON. SURFACE FEATURES ON THE FIRST STRUCTURE WILL BE PRODUCED BY CONTROLLABLY ETCHING THERMALLYGROWN OXIDES. FEATURES ON THE SECOND WILL BE MADE BY ETCHING PIEZOELECTRIC THIN FILMS. USING THE PIEZOELECTRIC FILM AS PART OF A CAPACITOR, STEP-HEIGHT CAN BE VARIED AND PRO ...

  3. ULTRASENSITIVE DETECTION OF TOXINS USING IMMUNOASSAY AMPLIFICATION

    SBC: Elcatech, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE INABILITY TO DETECT TOXINS WITH ADEQUATE SENSITIVITY IS ONE OF THE PRINCIPAL REASONS THAT THEY ARE POTENTIALLY THREATENING, EITHER DUE TO "NATURAL" EXPOSURE OR DELIBERATE AND HOSTILE USE OF THESE AGENTS BY AN ADVERSARY. THIS PROPOSAL OUTLINES A WAY THAT THE DETECTION OF THESE TOXINS CAN BE MADE MUCH MORE SENSITIVE WITHOUT USE OF EXPENSIVE EQUIPMENT OR HIGHLY TRAINED PERSONNEL FOR THE FINAL PRO ...

  4. CATHODES FOR MOLTEN SALT LITHIUM BATTERIES

    SBC: Technochem Company            Topic: N/A

    MOLTEN SALT LITHIUM BATTERIES OFFER THE PROSPECT OF VERY HIGH PULSE POWER DENSITIES COUPLED WITH HIGH SPECIFIC ENERGY DENSITIES. FOR PULSE POWER APPLICATION, U.S. ARMY REQUIRES PROJECTED CURRENT DENSITIES OF HUNDREDS OF AMPERES PER SQ.CM. IN THE MILLISECOND RANGE AND TENS OF AMPERES PER SQ.CM. IN THE FRACTIONS OF SECOND. CATHODES FOR SUCH MOLTEN-SALT LITHIUM BATTERIES MUST HAVE HIGH THEORETICAL EN ...

  5. DIGESTIVE ENZYME SUPPLEMENTS TO INERT FEEDS FOR SMALL-EGG FISH LARVAE

    SBC: International Aquaculture Res            Topic: N/A

    INADEQUATE STARTER FEEDS SEVERELY HOLD BACK NEW AQUACULTURE ENTERPRISES SUCH AS PRESENT ATTEMPTS TO RAISE FISHES WHOSE LARVAE DEVELOP FROM SMALL EGGS AND HAVE VERY "DIFFICULT" FOOD REQUIREMENTS. INERT LARVAL FEEDS HAVE NOT SUCCESSFULLYELIMINATED THE STRICT DEPENDENCY ON NATURAL FORAGE DURING THE CRITICAL POST-LARVAL STAGE AFTER YOLK ABSORPTION AND BEFORE THE DEVELOPMENT OF A DIGESTIVE SYSTEM WITH ...

  6. TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY DEVELOPING A RECEPTOR TEST FOR A MODEL BIOLOGICAL TOXIN

    SBC: Environmental Diagnostics            Topic: N/A

    ENVIRONMENTAL DIAGNOSTICS, INC. PROPOSED TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF APPLYING ITS NEW INNOVATIVE HAPTEN TECHNOLOGY TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF IMMUNORECEPTORS FOR DETECTION AND ASSAY OF BIOLOGICAL TOXINS. THE NEW HAPTEN RECEPTOR TECHNOLOGY OVERCOMES PREVIOUS SCIENTIFIC LIMITATIONS AND TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES IN DEVELOPING IMMUNOASSAYS FOR HIGHLYTOXIC, LOW MOLECULAR WEIGHT PROTEIN TOXINS. TO DATE, THE ...
