  2. Transition AbleAideTM: A needs-based computer system for matching assistive technology and home automation devices to students transitioning from school to adult life.

    SBC: Meeting the Challenge, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This project will demonstrate the technical merit and feasibility of Transition AbleAideTM, a needs-based system for assisting special educators and related service providers in matching students with disabilities with appropriate disability accommodations (including assistive technology, home automation devices, and other simple accommodations) to aid the transition from school to adult life, but ...

  3. SMARTVOICE: An Intelligent Sound Field System for the Classroom

    SBC: OVAL WINDOW AUDIO            Topic: N/A

    The adverse acoustical environments typically found in classrooms have led to the development and proliferation of a new generation of small sound systems usually referred to as "sound field systems" (SFS). Recent studies support the usefulness of SFS to enhance the intelligibility of teachers' voices for the benefit of students with mild unaided hearing losses or attention deficits, and normally ...

  4. Animated Interactive Web Tutorial for Introduction to Physics

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Performance of US students in mathematics and physics has been limited, partly because the traditional pedagogy relies on logical and linguistic methods of teaching, and students are primarily assessed on fact knowledge and discrete skills. Recent achievements in computer science provide revolutionary means for educational reform. Thus, use of the World Wide Web and Java - a package of a new obj ...

  5. Parent-Child Video-Print Mentoring Packages

    SBC: Wolf River Productions            Topic: N/A

    Long term student achievement is greatly affected by early family influences. However, many parents do not have knowledge or skill for facilitating early child development. The project is designed to develop and field test instructional materials for parent-child mentoring. The "user friendly" combination of instructional text videotape is designed to test the effectiveness of multimedia instru ...

  6. High Power Frequency Doubled Laser Diode Devices

    SBC: Altos, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I program will determine the practicality of increasing the second harmonic (SH) output of frequency doubling devices by at least 5 times current gutput powers. Altos has demonstrated in preliminary experiments have a 2 times to 3 times increase in SH output by creating thermal gradients across the waveguide structures used to frequency double the lase ...

  7. High Efficiency Floating Junction Gallium Arsenide Solar Cell

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AstroPower proposes to develop a new ultra-thin gallium arsenide solar cell for space applications, that will result in significantly higher performance compared to conventional gallium arsenide and silicon solar cells. This design incorporates a "floating" junction on the front of the ultra-thin solar cell and a collecting junction at the back of the device. This design will significantly decreas ...

  8. Low-Defect GaN Surrogate Substrates by Epitaxial Lateral Overgrowth

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose exploratory development of new epitaxial growth technologies for low-defect GiN epitaxial structures and surrogate substrates. A significant feature of our approach is epitaxial latval overgrowth for "defect filtering." We present arguments that such epitaxial lateral overgrowth will lead to GaN material of unprecedented quality with respect to defects, stress, and purity. In the Phase ...

  9. Chip-Levewl Doppler Laser Radar

    SBC: LIGHTWORKS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Recent progress in self-mixing Doppler sensors have proven that measurement performance similar to that obtained with continuous-wave coherent laser radar is feasible, but with at least an order of magnitude less complexity and cost. We believe that extremely simple hardware signal processors can also be built as single chips, or at most a few chips. This points to the possibility of developing hi ...

  10. High-Density, Reconfigurable Optical Routing Interconnects

    SBC: Macro-vision Communications,            Topic: N/A

    High-density reconfigurable optical routing interconnect is introduced in this SBIR program for optical signal processing. This structure is based on three key features: 1) Polarization manipulation using 2-D spatial light modulators; 2) polarization complementary geometry; and 3) the throw-away undesired optical energies design. The polarization manipulation provides the basis for "no-moving" par ...
