  5. Antimonide Laser Spectrometer for measuring the flux of ammonia

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I SBIR research project will investigate the feasibility of an ammonia sensor based on an antimonide laser and an advanced, low noise modulation spectroscopy method. The rapid response and high sensitivity will allow the use of the eddy correlation method to provide continuous measurement of ammonia flux. Minor adjustments to the laser operating point will allow the instrument to measur ...

  6. Oxygen Sensor in Fires

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The ability to perform in-situ measurements of oxygen concentration in fire environments at a fast rate (better than 1 sec ) is not fulfilled by available sensor systems in the marketplace. Current systems involve extraction of gas samples with the required removal of water, particulate, and interfering chemical species, which can take several seconds to complete, prior to passing the samples to a ...

  7. Digital Electronics for Silicon Drift Detectors

    SBC: XIA LLC            Topic: N/A

    Silicon drift detectors (SDDs), a new class of energy dispersive detector that operates at near-room temperature, have just started to become commercially available. SDDs achieve energy resolutions comparable to the best Si(Li) detectors but at much shorter peaking times. The use of these detectors has resulted in photon throughput rates exceeding 1 MHz, exceeding the capabilities of existing puls ...

  8. Software to Calculate Occupant Forces in Real-World Crashes

    SBC: Dynamic Research Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A need exists for economical, high capacity software to aid medical and engineering researchers to more easily and consistently calculate forces acting on vehicle occupants during real-world crashes. One example of such research is NHTSA¿s Crash Injury Research and Engineering Network (CIREN), which in addition to collecting injury and vehicle information, has increasing access to data from Even ...

  9. Development of a Novel Microbial Biopesticide for the Control of Insect Pests

    SBC: AgraQuest, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Agriculture needs new bio-rational pest control agents to replace outdated synthetic chemicals. Safer, smarter, target-specific control measures are required for use in sustainable integrated pest management (IPM) systems. New technologies are essential to IPM in high value fruit, nut, and vegetable crops where the most widely used insecticides are organophosphates (OPs) and carbamates. In 1998, 3 ...

  10. A Reverse Venturi Atomization Chamber

    SBC: ARENA PESTICIDE MANAGEMENT            Topic: N/A

    Spray drift is a significant issue facing agricultural applicators throughout the United States. Up to half of the crop production materials applied are delivered to the crop site by air. This method is highly valued by the farmer and contributes to American agricultural productivity. However, material that drifts off-site is of concern. Material not applied to the target is a financial loss for t ...
