The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. RAMAN SCATTERING FOR CLINICAL GAS DIAGNOSIS

    SBC: Biomaterials International Inc            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT ADDRESSES THE DEVELOPMENT AND EVALUATION OF A PROTOTYPE LASER RAMAN SCATTERING GAS SENSOR. POTENTIAL APPLICATION AREAS ARE: BLOOD PO2/PCO2 VIA SUITABLE SAMPLING CATHETER AND NONINVASIVE MONITORING OF RESPIRATION, ANESTHESIA DELIVERY, LUNG FUNCTION, AND CARDIAC OUTPUT. MASS SPEC, WHILE CURRENTLY THE MOST POPULAR APPROACH TO MEDICAL GAS QUANTITATION, SUFFERS FROM INHERENT USER UNFRIENDL ...

  2. MINIATURIZED RAMAN CLINICAL GAS ANALYZER

    SBC: Biomaterials International Inc            Topic: N/A

    A NEED EXISTS TO QUANTITATE ANESTHETIC AND RESPIRATORY GASES(O2, CO2, N2) IN THE OPERATING ROOM. PREVIOUS WORK HAS SHOWN THAT RAMAN LIGHT SCATTERING CAN BE SUCCESSFULLY UTILIZED FOR MOLECULAR GAS ANALYSIS. THE RAMAN SIGNAL FOR EACH GAS CAN BE SEPARATED FROM THE LASER BEAM RAYLEIGH SCATTER VIA FILTER COMBINATIONS, THUS ELIMINATING THE NEED FOR LARGE, EXPENSIVE MONOCHROMATORS. THIS PROPOSAL ADDRESSE ...

  4. HEPARIN ADSORPTION COMPLEXES FOR BLOOD COMPATIBILITY

    SBC: Biomaterials International Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE ANTICOAGULANT, HEPARIN, WILL BE DERIVATIZED WITH BIOLOGICALLY COMPATIBLE HYDROPHOBIC MACROMOLECULES TO MAKE THEM WATER INSOLUBLE. THIS DERIVATIZATION WILL OCCUR THROUGH HYDROPHILIC SPACER GROUPS, ALLOWING THE HEPARIN TO EXTEND INTO THE AQUEOUS ENVIRONMENT AND RETAIN ITS BIOACTIVE CONFIGURATION. THESE HEPARIN DERIVATIVES WILL BE SOLVENT-COATED ONTO BIOMEDICAL DEVICES TO PROVIDE LOW-COST, IMMOBI ...

  5. POLYMERIC MATERIALS TO MINIMIZE CELL AND TISSUE ADHESION

    SBC: Biomaterials International Inc            Topic: N/A

    USING THE MOUSE PERITONEAL IMPLANT MODEL, MATERIALS WILL BE EVALUATED FOR THEIR BIOCOMPATIBILITY. THE OBJECTIVE OF THISSTUDY WILL BE TO DEVELOP MATERIALS WITH MINIMAL TENDENCY FORCELLULAR AND TISSUE ADHESION. POLYURETHANES AND SILICONES, MATERIALS WIDELY USED IN BIOMEDICAL DEVICE FABRICATION, WILLBE SYNTHESIZED OR MODIFIED TO YIELD A HIGH CONCENTRATION OF POLYETHER FUNCTIONALITY AT THE POLYMER SUR ...

  6. A VLSI DIGITAL TESTER BASED UPON A SINGLE CUSTOM CHIP PER INDIVIDUAL PIN

    SBC: BONNEVILLE SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    IN THIS PHASE I, SIX-MONTH FEASIBILITY STUDY WE PROPOSE TO GENERATE A PLAN FOR A SYSTEM ARCHITECTURE FOR A DIGITAL VLSI CHIP TESTER. THE TESTER WILL BE DESIGNED TO INTERFACE TO THE DESIGN WORKSTATION TO ALLOW INTERACTIVE DEBUGGING OF PROTOTYPE CIRCUITS AND SUBSEQUENT DOWN LOADING OF TEST PATTERNS AND EXPECTED RESULTS TO A PRODUCTION VLSI TESTER. THE TESTER WILL BE LOW IN COST BECAUSE IT WILL NOT P ...

  7. HIGH SPEED GALIUM ARSENIDE DESIGN TOOL

    SBC: BONNEVILLE SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    INTEREST IN GALIUM ARSENIDE (GAAS) INTEGRATED CIRCUITS (IC) GROWING RAPIDLY BECAUSE THEY ARE VERY FASTAND RESISTANT TO RADIATION. HOWEVER, SOME SIGNIFICANT PROBLEMS ARE STILL OF CONCERN. FIRST, THE INCREASED SPEED OF THIS TECHNOLOGY HAS LEAD TO TIMING PROBLEMS IN CIRCUIT DESIGN. WITH THIS TECH- NOLOGY THE GATE SWITCHING SPEEDS HAVE BEEN INCREASED TO WHERE THEY CAN BE EQUIVALENT TO THE WIRE TRANSMI ...

  8. SODIUM HEAT ENGINE DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: N/A

    THE SODIUM HEAT ENGINE (SHE) IS AN EFFICIENT DEVICE FOR THE DIRECT CONVERSION OF THERMAL ENERGY TO ELECTRICAL ENERGY. THE DEVICE HAS HIGH SPECIFIC POWER BOTH ON A VOLUME AND WEIGHT BASIS, HIGH CONVERSION EFFICIENCY WHICH IS INDEPENDENT OF SIZE, AND NO MOVING PARTS WHICH IMPLIES POTENTIALLY HIGH RELIABILITY. THESE ATTRIBUTES MAKE THE SHE AN ATTRACTIVE DEVICE FOR SDI APPLICATIONS. ALTHOUGH THE PRINC ...

  9. HIGH TEMPERATURE EVALUATION OF NEW FERROELASTIC TOUGHENED CERAMIC MATERIALS

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: N/A

    IT IS PROPOSED THAT NEW CERAMIC MATERIALS WITH POTENTIAL FOR STRENGTH AND TOUGHNESS RETENTION TO ELEVATED TEMPERATURES WILL BE FABRICATED AND CHARACTERIZED. THESE NEW CERAMIC MATERIALS EXHIBIT A PHENOMENON KNOWN AS FERROELASTICITY. THE PHENOMENON OF FERROELASTICITY IS VERY SIMILAR TO THAT OF FERROELECTRICITY AND FERROMAGNETISM. THE FERROELASTIC STATE IS CHARACTERIZED BY THE EXISTENCE OF AT LEAST T ...

  10. NOVEL MATERIALS FOR HIGH CURRENT SWITCH APPLICATIONS

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: N/A

    IF A SERIES OF MATERIALS CAN BE ENGINEERED HAVING METAL TO INSULATOR OR METAL-TO-SEMICONDUCTOR TRANSITION AT A SPECIFIC DESIRED TEMPERATURE, THEN THESE MATERIALS WILL PAVE THE WAY FOR A VARIETY OF APPLICATIONS. ONE SUCH APPLICATION IS A HIGH CURRENT, SOLID STATE, RELIABLE SWITCH. IT IS PROPOSED TO DEVELOP SUCH MATERIALS USING TIO2-VO2 SOLID SOLUTION. THE HIGH TEMPERATURE RUTILE STRUCTURE OF VO2 IS ...
