  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. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Sensitive Molecular Beacons (MB) Based DNA Microarray

    SBC: BIOMACHINES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "The DNA microarray is a powerful new technology that can be applied to the detection of biological warfare agents. For the detection of multiple agents, tremendous challenges lie ahead for the DNA microarray technology regarding on sensitivity,selectivity, reliability and consistence. The central theme of this proposal is to apply and optimize a newly developed DNA probe: Molecular beacons (MB) ...

  5. Miniaturized Real-time Visible/UV Spectrometer

    SBC: Spectronix Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "The miniaturized spectrometer presented in this proposal is a simple hand-held static Fourier-transform spectrometer for real-time detection and characterization of chemicals in rapidly changing and/or fast moving environments such as chemicals in cloudsand vapor. The core of the system consists of a pair of mirrors and a line scan CCD array. The interferogram is generated in the spatial domain a ...
