  1. AN OPTIMAL TIME-DEPENDENT RECEIVER FOR INTERFERENCE REJECTION

    SBC: Adv Countermeasure Sys            Topic: N/A

    THIS SBIR PROJECT EXAMINES A NEW AND INNOVATIVE METHOD OF IMPLEMENTING A RECEIVER THAT HAS SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE OVER THAT OF CONVENTIONAL RECEIVERS IN REJECTING INTERFERENCE. THE IMPROVED INTERFERENCE REJECTION ALLOWS THE TRANSMITTER TO USE LESS POWER TO ACHIEVE THE REQUIRED BIT-ERROR RATE PERFORMANCE, AND HENCE REDUCES THE PROBABILITY THAT THE TRANSMITTER WILL INTERFERE WITH OTHER USERS OF THE SP ...

  2. ELECTRICALLY-ACTIVATED, LIQUID-CRYSTAL FILLED, HOLOGRAPHIC DIFFRACTIVE STRUCTURE FOR WAVELENGTH CONTROL

    SBC: Advanced Environmental Researc            Topic: N/A

    THE CONCEPT DESCRIBED HEREIN IS AN ADVANCED HOLOGRAPHIC DIFFRACTIVE STRUCTURE (HDS) FOR THE CONTROL OF LIGHT AT THE WAVELENGTH LEVEL. A STACK OF ELECTRICALLY CONTROLLABLE, LIQUID-CRYSTAL FILLED DIFFRACTION GRATINGS WOULD PRESENT A THIN, LIGHTWEIGHT, CLEAR PANEL, THAT, WHEN PLACED IN CONTACTWITH AN APERTURE SHALL BE ABLE TO CONCENTRATE SUNLIGHT VERY EFFICIENTLY INTO A STABLE AREA IN THE CENTER OF A ...

  3. THREE DIMENSIONAL RECONSTRUCTION OF IMAGES OF INTERIOR OBJECTS

    SBC: Aracor            Topic: N/A

    COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY (CT), A TECHNIQUE FOR RECONSTRUCTING THEINTERIOR OF AN OBJECT FROM MEASUREMENTS OF ITS LINE INTEGRALS (OR PROJECTIONS), IS INCREASINGLY BEING APPLIED INRESEARCH AND IN NON-DESTRUCTIVE EVALUATION OF INDUSTRIAL OBJECTS. TO HANDLE THE INCREASED SPATIAL RESOLUTION AND THROUGHPUT REQUIREMENTS OF THESE APPLICATIONS, CT SCANNERS MAY BE ABLE TO USE AREA DETECTORS INSTEAD OF THE SINGLE ...

  4. ON-LINE DETERMINATION OF SINGLE PARTICLE SIZE AND DENSITY IN THE 5- 100NM DIAMETER RANGE

    SBC: Aerosol Dynamics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    PROPOSED HERE IS A DIAGNOSTIC METHOD FOR THE ON-LINE, SEMI-CONTINUOUS DETERMINATION OF THE SIZE AND DENSITY (G/CM(3)) OF INDIVIDUAL PARTICLES IN THE 5 NM TO 100 NM SIZERANGE. THIS IS ACCOMPLISHED THROUGH A DOUBLE SIZE SPECTROMETRY SYSTEM. PARTICLES ARE FIRST SIZED BY THEIR STOKES DIAMETER, AND THEN SIZED BY THEIR AERODYNAMIC DIAMETER. THE FIRST MEASURE, NAMELY THE STOKES DIAMETER SIZING, GIVES THE ...

  5. OPTICAL FORCE TRAP MICROMANIPULATOR

    SBC: APREND TECHNOLOGY            Topic: N/A

    THE OPPORTUNITY ADDRESSED BY THE PROPOSAL IS TO DEVELOP AN OPTICAL FORCE TRAP MICROMANIPULATOR SUITABLE FOR EVERYDAY USE IN A BIOLOGY LABORATORY. AN OPTICAL FORCE TRAP USES LIGHT FROM A LASER TO EXERT FORCES AND TO MOVE MICROSCOPIC SIZED OBJECTS. BECAUSE THEY USE LIGHT, THEY ARE ABLE TO MANIPULATE LIVING OBJECTS WITHOUT HARMING THEM. THESE CAPABILITIES OPEN UP NEW TYPES OF RESEARCH TECHNIQUES WHER ...

  6. PLASMA ELECTRON GUN FEASIBILITY EXPERIMENTS

    SBC: John R. Bayless Co            Topic: N/A

    A RESEARCH PROGRAM IS PROPOSED TO DETERMINE THE SCIENTIFIC FEASIBILITY OF A NEW TYPE OF BROAD AREA (>1000 CM(2)), HIGH ENERGY (>400 KEV) ELECTRON GUN CONCEPT. THIS PLASMA ELECTRON (PE) GUN USES A PLASMA, WHICH IS GENERATED AT LOW GAS PRESSURE USING A THIN-WIRE COLD-CATHODE DISCHARGE, AS THE DC SOURCE OF ELECTRONS. THE EXTRACTED ELECTRONS ARE FORMED IN BEAMLETS WHICH PASS THROUGH A THIN METAL FOIL ...

  7. ADVANCED DENSITY LOGGING TOOL

    SBC: John R. Bayless Co            Topic: N/A

    A RESEARCH PROGRAM IS PROPOSED TO DEVELOP A NEW AND INNOVATIVE TYPE OF BOREHOLE LOGGING TOOL FOR MEASURING THE BULK DENSITY OF GEOLOGICAL FORMATIONS. THIS TOOL USES ALINEAR INDUCTION ACCELERATOR (LIA) TO GENERATE AN INTENSE X-RAY BEAM WHICH IS SCATTERED FROM THE FORMATION. DETECTORS PLACED NEAR THE ACCELERATOR SENSE THE SCATTERED PHOTONS THEREBY PROVIDING A DIRECT MEASURE OF DENSITY. LIA-BASED SYS ...

  8. FEASIBILITY EXPERIMENTS FOR THE INDUCTION SYNCHROTRON ACCELERATOR CONCEPT

    SBC: John R. Bayless Co            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS AN INCREASING NEED FOR LOW COST ELECTRON ACCELERATORS WHICH ARE COMPACT, EFFICIENT AND CAPABLE OF OPERATING AT HIGH CURRENT AND POWER LEVELS IN THE ENERGY RANGE OF 10-1000 MEV. WE PROPOSE TO PERFORM RESEARCH ON THE NEW INDUCTION SYNCHROTRON ACCELERATOR (ISA) CONCEPT WITHTHE OBJECTIVE OF MEETING THIS NEED. THE ISA OPERATES BY RECIRCULATING AN ELECTRON BEAM PULSE ( 30 NS LONG) THROUGH INDUC ...

  9. ADVANCED CONCEPT FOR WASTE GAS POLLUTION CONTROL

    SBC: John R. Bayless Co            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1991 National Science Foundation
  10. ALGORITHMS FOR THE BUILDING OF MODEL PROTEINS USING STRUCTURAL

    SBC: Biosym Technologies Inc.            Topic: N/A

    BECAUSE OF INNOVATIONS IN THE BIOTECHNOLOGY INDUSTRY, PROTEIN SEQUENCE DATA IS BECOMING AVAILABLE AT AN EVER INCREASING RATE. SINCE STRUCTURAL INFORMATION OBTAINED FROMX-RAY CRYSTALLOGRAPHY OR NMR ANALYSIS IS OBTAINED MUCH MORE SLOWLY, THERE ARE MANY PROTEINS CRITICAL TO ONGOING RESEARCHFOR WHICH AMINO ACID SEQUENCES ARE KNOWN, BUT ATOMIC COORDINATES ARE UNAVAILABLE. THE RESEARCH PROPOSED HERE IS ...
