The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY19 is not expected to be complete until April, 2020.

  1. Non-destructive, Functional Metabolic Imaging of Plant and Microbial Systems

    SBC: MESA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: 27a

    Functional metabolic imaging of plant and microbial systems requires a sensitive, high spatial resolution microscopy method that can image metabolically important compounds in situ. This will require new chemically sensitive imaging methods to be developed. In this SBIR/STTR, we will develop a new coherent Raman-based microscopy technique that will improve ensitivity over existing stimulated Raman ...

  2. Ground-based Water Vapor Atmospheric Vertical Profiler

    SBC: MESA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: 25b

    Detailed accurate data on temperature variations and water vapor concentration distributions are needed for weather and climate forecasting. Water vapor is particularly important for predicting precipitation amounts from storms. Measurements are needed from the ground to the top of the troposphere at about 10 km altitude. Existing ground-based instruments often have measurement uncertainties due t ...

  3. 3e Swept External Cavity Quantum Cascade Lasers for Remote Detection

    SBC: OPTICSLAH, LLC            Topic: 03e

    Rapid and sensitive remote detection of chemicals remains a challenging and currently unmet need for a wide range of monitoring and sensing applications. Remote detection is needed when it is not possible or practical to obtain samples for analysis of chemicals in a laboratory, and thus measurements must be performed without physical access to the source release point. In particular, quantitative ...

  4. Atomic Force Microscope Active Optical Probe for Single-Molecule Imaging and Time-Resolved Optical Spectroscopy

    SBC: ACTOPROBE LLC            Topic: 08b

    While science and technology fields greatly benefit from Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) in surface characterization, time-resolved chemical imaging on the single-molecule level, e.g., Near-Field Scanning Optical Spectroscopy and Ultrafast Tip-Enhanced Spectroscopy, lags far behind — current scanning probe microscopy only obtains information about mechanical, but not chemical/optical properties. T ...

  5. Diode Laser Sensor for Contaminants in Hydrogen Fuel

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 14b

    Low concentrations of contaminants in hydrogen fuel can foul or damage fuel cells in hydrogen fuel cell vehicles. Currently there is infrequent monitoring of hydrogen quality at filling stations. There is no instrumentation available to perform this function at the station. In this project, a diode laser instrument is being developed that will be able to perform these measurements at filling stati ...

  6. Multiplexed Signal Recovery for Ultrafast Diagnostics

    SBC: MESA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: 24b

    There is a growing need for high bandwidth (greater than 2 terahertz) long duration optical waveform measurement in telecommunications, laser development, and data collection from optically encoded sensors.Sensor monitoring requires multiplexing multiple sensors for cost reduction.The system must also be able to completely characterize laser driver pulses at multiple locations, providing the inten ...

  7. Collaborative VR/AR Data Visualization Tool

    SBC: Woodruff Scientific, Inc.            Topic: 21c

    Computational physicists and diagnosticians need to analyze 3D data to gain understanding of their simulations or diagnostic results.Visualizing 3D Physics effects by use of 2D screens can limit understanding or even create misunderstandings.Communication of results between collaborators can be difficult when using 2D images or movies, sent by email with written explanations: one finds oneself rep ...
