  1. Analysis Software for Near-Field Optical Microscopes

    SBC: Field Precision            Topic: N/A

    The near-field scanning optical microscope can supply information on the shape and electrical properties of surfaces with nanometer resolution. The quantitative interpretation of images is difficult because of the difficulty of electromagnetic field solutions in the near-field limit. We propose to supply software to aid in this analysis. The finite-element programs generate two and three-dimension ...

  2. New Methods for Evaluating Thermal Performance of Protective Clothing for

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    A growing number of fire fighters are suffering third degree burns; this has led to questions about the adequacy of thermal protective performance (TPP) measurements for protective clothing. A new heat flux sensor, whose response approximates that of skin, will be developed to provide better measurements of heat transfer in TPP tests. This sensor will be used with nonlinear parameter estimation an ...

  3. Thermographic Phosphor Based Heat Flux Sensors

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    As fire protection engineering moves towards the implementation of performance- based fire codes, the use of validated fire models is becoming a necessity. Part of the validation process involves demonstrating model capabilities for predicting key fire environment parameters. One of the key parameters for estimating time to ignition and fire growth is the heat transfer rate to compartment surfaces ...

  4. A Diode Laser Multigas Analyzer for Advanced Detection of Fires

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Southwest Sciences will develop a novel fire detection technology based on optical spectroscopy, using diode lasers and fiber optics. Rapid, quantitative detection of part per million concentrations (or better) of multiple gases, including carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, hydrogen cyanide, hydrogen chloride, and a fiber optical distribution network permits one laser to be used for at least 800 di ...

  5. Diode Laser-Based Optical Flux Monitor for MBE Control

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A diode laser method for the real-time measurement of absolute flux concentrations and spatial profiles of atomic beams used in MBE will be tested. The proposed method uses the doubled output of a near-infrared diode laser to access atomic absorption lines of species such as Ga, Al and In. The detection method will combine high frequency wavelength modulation and noise canceler approaches in order ...

  6. Sensitive Measurement of Water Vapor from Commercial Aviation Platforms

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Commercial aviation offers a low cost platform from which to make extensive humidity measurements, provided the instrumentation can run autonomously and endure the rigorous flight schedules. Advances in state of the art diode laser gas sensing technology make possible compact, fully automated, self-calibrating instrumentation with the sensitivity needed to measure humidity levels throughout the tr ...

  8. Semi Automated Integrated System for Single Cell Sorting

    SBC: Cell Robotics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The capability to routinely sort single cells with absolute purity will be developed. This applicatneeds scientists of the cancer research community have to easily select and isolate unique cells, suspecific cloning or abnormal cells, for genetic analysis. A new apparatus will be developed and desithese application requirements. It will give scientists access to cutting edge technologies and unprs ...

  9. LASER INSTRUMENT FOR IN VITRO PHOTOTHERMAL ABLATION

    SBC: Cell Robotics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION: (Adapted from the Applicant's Abstract). It is proposed to develop an IR pulsed laser ablation system for assisted (IVF). The ablation will be used to ablate the zona pellucida (ZP) to assist embryo hatching from the ZP to facilitate reimplantation. A wavelength has been selected (1480nm) that will allow the light to be delivered through a microscope objective, the bottom of the cu ...
