  1. Improved Silicon Drift Detector Coincidence Rejection for Digital Pulse Processors

    SBC: 4pi Analysis, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The recent emergence of the Silicon Drift detector (SDD), for use in Energy Dispersive x-ray Spectroscopy (EDS), has made possible x-ray event streams with input count rates in the range of 1-10 Mcps. Modern digital pulse processors are therefore required to run at fast time constants to achieve reasonable throughput; however, this causes significant coincidence artifacts to appear in the spectrum ...

  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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. RBAC-Based Workflow

    SBC: Virtual Globe, Inc. (Rockwise)            Topic: N/A

    Under this proposal, Virtual Global, Inc. proposes to work with NIST to develop RBAC-BASED WORKFLOW, a workflow system that will use RBAC in a web services model as a form of middleware that can be "packaged" accessed, configured, and reused by integrating with existing trusted RBAC implementations.

  6. 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).
