  1. Narrowband Perfect Absorber using Metamaterials

    SBC: Phoebus Optoelectronics LLC            Topic: CBD11102

    We propose a metamaterial-enhanced microbolometer with strong absorption over a narrow band that is dynamically tunable over the 8-10 micron band. A single-layer photonic metamaterial consisting of a thin metal film perforated with a 2-D array of dielectric apertures will be deposited on an amorphous-Silicon layer acting as an absorber and bolometer. The metamaterial, in conjunction with planar di ...

  2. Narrowband Perfect Absorber using Metamaterials

    SBC: LUMILANT, INC.            Topic: CBD11102

    Hyperspectral imaging systems acquire the spatial and spectral information of the image scene simultaneously, and thus find important applications in remote sensing, military surveillance, and target identification. Most contemporary hyperspectral imaging systems operate at UV/VIS/NIR (ultra violet/visible/near infrared) spectrums. However, in many cases, especially in military applications, (hype ...

  3. Multiplex Microsphere Assay for Botulinum Neutralizing Antibodies

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: CBD11109

    Currently, the accepted standard experimental model for measuring protective efficacy against botulism is the Mouse Lethality Neutralization (MLN) assay. Botulism poisoning is a life threatening condition that is not only a public health concern, but could also be a potential biological weapon. With seven serotypes of botulinum neurotoxins, there is need for an alternative to the MLN assay due t ...

  4. A High-Throughput Blood Esterase Panel Assay

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: CBD10108

    Organophosphorus chemical warfare nerve agents (OP-CWA) are attractive to terrorist groups and rogue states as an inexpensive and accessible technology for chemical warfare. OP-CWA and organophosphate pesticides cause severe neurological symptoms and death by inhibiting the enzyme acetylcholinesterase (AChE); the resulting excess acetylcholine accumulates and overstimulates the human or animal bo ...

  5. A Novel Composite Membrane for High Temperature Hydrogen Separation

    SBC: BETTERGY CORP.            Topic: 09a

    Increased use of hydrogen as a fuel can provide benefits to our nations energy security, the environment and economic growth. Toward hydrogen economy, an innovation in hydrogen separation technology is needed in the production of hydrogen. Current separation technologies for industrial hydrogen production mainly include pressure swing adsorption process and the cryogenic separation process, which ...

  6. Self-Powered Wireless Sensors for Fossil Energy Based Turbine Systems

    SBC: MESOSCRIBE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 21d

    SelfPowered wireless sensors are needed on hightemperature rotating turbine engine components for real time sensing of component health. Conventional temperature, pressure and strain sensors use wired connections and slip rings which are not desired. Conventional wireless technology uses transmitters containing active semiconductors which degrade upon high temperature exposure. Although numerous w ...

  7. Ionic Liquid Membrane Contactor for CO2 Capture

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 09d

    Fossil fuels currently supply more than 85% of the worlds energy needs with the ensuing generation of 80% of all anthropogenic emissions of carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide as a greenhouse gas is considered to be a major contributor to global warming. There is a concerted effort towards capturing carbon dioxide at the source of generation and sequestering the gas. However, with existing technologies ...

  8. Non-Destructive Technique for Measurement of Electron Bunch Longitudinal Charge Distribution

    SBC: Advanced Energy Systems, Inc            Topic: 12b

    Measurement of the longitudinal charge distribution of short electron bunches moving with relativistic velocities is among the major challenges in the domain of accelerator diagnostics. The strict control of the longitudinal distribution is critical for the operation of X-ray Free Electron Lasers (FELs) and Energy Recovery Linacs (ERLs). Several techniques are presently employed; however, none of ...

  9. ClimatePipes: User-Friendly Data Access, Data Manipulation, Data Analysis and Visualization of Community Climate Models

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: 30a

    The aim of this proposal is to facilitate the access that non-researchers have to data generated from high-resolution, long-term, climate change projections performed as part of the U.S. Global Change Research Program. Effective analysis in climate science depends on having the appropriate cyber infrastructure to enable people to discover, access, manipulate, and visualize the large and complex da ...

  10. Reliable Parallel Electromagnetic Simulations on High-Order Unstructured Meshes

    SBC: SIMMETRIX INC.            Topic: 38a

    Researchers at SLAC ACD have developed a new generation of high-order finite element procedures for electromagnetic analysis that cans effectively simulation new accelerator designs. These same analysis procedures are well suited for electromagnetic applications ranging from threat detection, to antenna design, to wireless device design, to the treatment of cancer. Cost effective massively paralle ...
