  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. 3D Scaffold and Stem Cell Based Bioengineered Skin for Treatment of Cutaneous Vesicant Injury

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: CBD05117

    Vesicants have been used as chemical warfare agents since World War I and are still considered a major class of chemical threat agents both for the military and for homeland security. There are four different vesicating agents: impure sulfur mustard, distilled sulfur mustard, phosgene oxime, and lewisite. Among them, mustard is the most important militarily. The organs most commonly affected by ...

  5. SBIR Phase I: Distributed Optical Fiber Sensor Using Computationally Designed Fluorescent Proteins

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project proposes development of a distributed optical fiber sensor using computationally designed fluorescent proteins. Surface plasmon coupled emission (SPCE) has been shown to be an excellent means to enhance fluorescence sensing technology. With our innovation, grating-assisted SPCE (GASPCE), the fluorescence emission can be coupled into ...
