  1. MWIR Spatial Light Modulators for Hyperspectral Image Projectors

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed effort is to build a high resolution, high speed spatial light modulator (SLM) to be used in infrared (IR) spectral projectors. An IR spectral projector produces programmable spectra by dispersing light onto a programmable array, currently digital micromirror devices (DMDs), which either transmit or block selected components of the light. the light is then recombined to form complex s ...

  2. Extended Refreshable Tactile Graphic Display (with Linear Actuation Array)

    SBC: E L I A Life Technology Inc            Topic: N/A

    New innovative technology for the visually impaired has been developed by NIST. If commercialized, it would provide refreshable tactile graphical information to the visually impaired, enabling them to compete on a more equal footing in the workplace and the education system.

  3. CVD-based Polytype Controlled SiC Nanowire Growth

    SBC: GENESIC SEMICONDUCTOR INC.            Topic: N/A

    A novel chemical vapor deposition (CVD) based step-flow epitaxy process is proposed for controllable growth of SiC nanowires with high polytype integrity. SiC nanowires will be grown in a modified commercial high-temperature CVD reactor, used by industry for growing high-quality SiC epitaxial thin films. Different polytypes of SiC nanowires will be grown by choosing appropriate substrate materials ...

  5. An Elevated-Temperature Nanobalance Based on Piezoelectric Shear Mode Resonators (quartz, gallium phosphate, and langasite)

    SBC: Masscal Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The work proposed will provide a demonstration of feasibility and specific design recommendations for building an elevated-temperature resonating crystal balance with nanogram sensitivity. The approach will build upon existing technology commercialized by Masscal for operating a QCM in a temperature-controlled calorimeter. Precise temperature control and new types of crystal sensors will be used t ...

  7. Development of Improved Virtually-Imaged Phased Arrays

    SBC: Precision Photonics Corporation            Topic: N/A

    VIPA etalons are simple, compact devices that offer many times more dispersion than gratings and are finding increasing application where higher spectral resolution is needed. Current VIPA fabrication methods limit efficiency, spectral resolution, filter response, and spectral bandwidth. Precision Photonics proposes to use its enhanced optical fabrication capabilities to build advanced VIPA protot ...

  8. Innovative Fire Measurements Using Thermal Imaging

    SBC: CRITICAL IMAGING, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The most practical arrangement for investigating moving fires within a restricted space is to use a high- resolution stand off technique. One such method that fits this description is the use of a staring infrared (IR) sensing device (i.e. imager).

  9. Improving the efficiency of feed use in the cattle industry

    SBC: 3 C CATTLE FEEDERS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    While the initial application will be for cattle, the systems developed in this project will be applicable to feeders used for other domestic species including sheep, goats, and domestic hogs. In addition, the systems developed could be used to control gates or other access for animals or objects that are tagged with radio frequency identification systems. This project is designed to increase the ...

  10. Evaluation of Jatropha curcas by-products

    SBC: ALTERNATIVE AVIATION FUELS LLC            Topic: N/A

    Biofuels have a strategic value in reducing our dependence on foreign oil and the ability to increase our energy security. Growing and processing oil-rich biomass into biofuel in the U.S. would contribute to reduce this dependence. The objective of this project is to evaluate the conversion of oilseeds that could be grown in the U.S. and U.S. territories into a substitute of hydrocarbon fuel. One ...
