  1. Large Area Time-of-Flight Detectors for Imaging Science

    SBC: NOVA SCIENTIFIC INCORPORATED            Topic: 17b

    NOVA Scientific, Inc. proposes a Phase I SBIR program to develop, refine, and ultimately to commercialize, a large format 15 cm x 15 cm solid-state cold, thermal, and epithermal neutron imaging detector based on microchannel plates (MCPs). The imaging detector will be fabricated in a self-contained, hermetically sealed image tube, which does not require active vacuum pumping. This large area time- ...

  2. Ultra-low Temperature Cryostat for Application of High Electric Field in a Neutron Beam

    SBC: Janis Research Company, LLC            Topic: 17a

    Janis Research Company LLC proposes to develop an ultra-low temperature system with operation temperatures below 0.4 Kelvin and sample measurement capabilities for application of a high voltage up to 5kV. Upon further integration with an external magnetic field, this will be a unique ultra-low temperature platform to investigate the phases of multi-ferroic quantum materials and materials near a qu ...

  3. Large-area Radiation-hard Synchrotron X-ray Detectors

    SBC: CAPESYM, INC            Topic: 14a

    Modern synchrotron-based X-ray imaging techniques, such as coherent X-ray diffraction imaging and phase contrast imaging require high beam coherence and highly penetrating X-rays. The new generation of synchrotrons achieve enhanced coherence at beam energies greater than 30-50keV. These new prospects for non-destructive imaging require high spatial resolution and efficient large area detectors. Cu ...

  4. Low cost, High speed Multi-probe Monitoring System for Subsurface Gases

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: 24b

    Determination of soil gas concentrations and isotopologue ratios are a critical tool in plant, microbial and ecosystem ecology, hydrology, biogeochemistry studies, and interrogation of environmental remediation. In addition, the most abundant elements utilized and exchanged by plants, microbes and ecosystems are carbon (C), hydrogen (H), oxygen (O) and nitrogen (N), all of which respond to redox c ...

  5. Direct Write Fabrication of Low Cost Flexible Particle Detector Substrates

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: 29d

    High energy physics research has motivated the development of high-performance detectors to enable advances in experimentation. Many detectors are often large area, flexible panels capable of resolving particle/photon location with mm resolution. The specific requirements of a given experimental setup will dictate the unique configuration of the readout layer. Given the wide range of high energy p ...

  6. Low-Temperature Growth of Cadmium Telluride (CdTe) Semiconductors on ASIC

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 14a

    Recent advances in synchrotron radiation sources have dramatically increased their brightness, resulting in ultra-high photon fluence with beam size approaching nanometers. Their high brilliance and coherence have enabled experiments with unprecedented resolution that were previously impossible. However, in order to truly benefit from these techniques, detectors for hard X-ray with energies >30 ke ...

  7. Distortion Free Large-Area Detector for Neutron Scattering

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 17b

    Single crystal diffractometers which require large solid angle coverage for optimum performance typically have large gaps in detector coverage. These regions, which can be a significant fraction of the detectors active area, result in a performance that suffers from degraded resolution, distortion and gamma rejection. This effect is due in large part to the nature of the flat sensor surface that r ...

  8. Hybridized High-Z Pixel Detector

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 14a

    Coherent diffraction imaging (CDI) is a revolutionary method of studying micro- and nano-scale materials but it is a time consuming experimental technique that requires valuable synchrotron beam access. This becomes further exasperated when studying materials or structures that require use of higher energy synchrotron x-rays. Given the scarcity of data that high energy testing produces, it is impe ...

  9. Superconducting Bolometer for Neutrino Research

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 31c

    One of the high priority areas of nuclear physics research is to further elucidate the properties of the neutrino. Presently, the absolute neutrino mass scale remains of the most elusive yet unanswered questions regarding the fundamental properties of neutrinos. Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc. (RMD), in collaboration with Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), has recently begun to develo ...

  10. Novel Membranes For Electrochemical Compressors

    SBC: Giner ELX, Inc.            Topic: 19c

    Hydrogen compression represents a key technical challenge for the widespread use of Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEV). To dispense hydrogen to a FCEV tank, hydrogen must be compressed to a minimum of 875 bar. Conventional compressors account for over half of the refueling station’s cost, have poor reliability, and insufficient flow rates. To enable the widespread use of FCEVs, an additional maj ...
