  1. Rugged Electrodes for Mapping Sediment Habitat

    SBC: ANALYTICAL INSTRUMENT SYSTEMS            Topic: 835

    Currently no commercially available voltammetric electrode system exists which can operate in the water column, water/sediment interface or sediment. These electrodes need to sense a variety of electroactive species in the marine environment, which are biogeochemical relevant to understanding the Essential Fish Habitat. More importantly, these electrodes must be able to take the punishment of mu ...

  2. 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. Avalanche Photodiodes for Enhanced Photon Counting Performance at 1.5 um

    SBC: Princeton Lightwave, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    APDs offer tremendous potential for the numerous applications in which photon densities are extremely low and the ability to count single photons is essential. Researchers have recently found that the optimization of InP-based APDs for counting photons may require innovative design approaches that are quite distinct from those shown to optimize APD linear mode performance. For this program, we pro ...

  4. Manufacturable Geiger-Mode InGaAs/InP Avalanche Photodiodes for Near-Infrared Photon Counting

    SBC: Sensors Unlimited, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Application of NIR photon counting technology is impeded by the marginal performance of available detectors. We will develop new InGaAs/InP APD designs optimized for Geiger mode photon counting, delivering ten re-designed APDs, having detection probability greater than 50% and dark count rate less than ten thousand per second. During Phase II we will develop a new computer model of the Geiger mode ...

  5. Analysis Tools for Detection and Diagnosis of Biological Threats

    SBC: ALPHA-GAMMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: CBD04113

    DNA microarray technology, in combination with statistical and predictive modeling tools, could be used to evaluate thousands of genes against distinct gene expression patterns induced by chemical/biological agents to provide early identification and speed therapeutic intervention. The overall objective of this Phase II effort is to leverage existing public domain resources and commercial tools t ...

  6. Handheld Photoacoustic Chemical Agent and Toxic Industrial Material Detector

    SBC: MANNING APPLIED TECHNOLOGY            Topic: CBD05112

    Manning Applied Technology proposes to develop a handheld infrared spectrometer, ideally suited to detection of airborne chemical agents at and below permissible exposure limits. This approach offers unmatched sensitivity and specificity for detection of all types of chemical vapors. The instrument is modular, rugged, compact and highly sensitive. Volume pricing will be less than $1000 each. ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Flexible Composite Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear (CBRN) Barrier for the Joint Expeditionary Collective Protection System

    SBC: UTILITY DEVELOPMENT CORP            Topic: CBD05124

    The main objective will be to develop a high-performance flexible composite barrier that provides protection from Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear (CBRN) agents and Toxic Industrial Materials (TIMs). UDC will develop a thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) coated fabric to provide CBRN agent resistant tents. Fire retardant capability will be achieved by the addition of fire retardant fi ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. FIBER-OPTIC MAGNETIC FIELD SENSORS REQUIRE BULK CRYSTAL SENSOR ELEMENTS WITH HIGHER SENSITIVITY AND BETTER THERMAL STABILITY THAN PRESENTLY AVAILABLE.

    SBC: Deltronic Crystal Indust Inc.            Topic: N/A

    FIBER-OPTIC MAGNETIC FIELD SENSORS REQUIRE BULK CRYSTAL SENSOR ELEMENTS WITH HIGHER SENSITIVITY AND BETTER THERMAL STABILITY THAN PRESENTLY AVAILABLE. RARE-EARTH IRON GARNET SINGLE CRYSTALS HAVE GREAT POTENTIAL FOR IMPROVING THESE CHARACTERISTICS. HOWEVER, THERE ARE A VAST NUMBER OF REIG COMPOSITIONS POSSIBLE. ALTHOUGH SOME COMPOSITIONS ARE BEINGREPORTED ON, PARTICULARLY BY FOREIGN SCIENTISTS, THE ...
