  1. Automated Link Analysis for Data-mining of Distributed Information (ALADDIN II)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: OSD02DH13

    Recent terrorist actions, particularly the delivery of anthrax via the US Postal Service, have triggered an urgent need for an early warning system for disease outbreaks due to bioterrorism. In response, we have developed, under a Phase I SBIR effort, a Bayesian Belief Network (BN) approach for Automated Link Analysis for Data-mining of Distributed INformation (ALADDIN) for early outbreak detectio ...

  2. Advanced Aerosol Mass Spectrometer for Aircraft Measurement of Organic Particulate Matter

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 6

    72904-Aerosol particles have important impacts on visibility, acid deposition, climate, and human health, although large uncertainties remain on their quantification. A significant part of the anthropogenic aerosol is generated from energy-related activities, and organic compounds are known to account for a large part of ambient aerosol mass in many locations. However, the measurement of the com ...

  3. Cavity Attenuation Phase Shift Spectroscopic Detection of Nitrogen Dioxide

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 6

    72080-Nitrogen dioxide emissions are regulated by a national ambient air quality standard under the 1970 Clean Air Act. The prevalent means of detection, a chemiluminescence-based monitor (the so-called NOx box), often provides inaccurate readings for nitrogen dioxide in the presence of other nitrogen-containing trace atmospheric species. This project will build an uncomplicated, inexpensive, an ...

  4. Low Cost Modular Power Converter-Building Blocks

    SBC: Airak, Inc.            Topic: 24

    72743-In the past, power converter/inverter designs (such as those used in electric or hybrid electric vehicles) tended to be application-specific engineering projects, which limited their utility because the low-volume production of specialized power conversion equipment significantly increased design risk and development cost. On the other hand, todays power electronics technologies lend themse ...

  5. High Performance PET Detector

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 5

    72199-Proton Emission Tomography (PET) is a powerful imaging tool that can provide diagnosis for symptoms of diseases such as Alzheimer¿s, cancer, head trauma, and stroke. The performance of current clinical PET systems is limited by available detector technology. An urgent need exists to improve the PET instrumentation in order to exploit the full potential of this promising technique. This p ...

  6. A Novel Design for CZT Gamma Ray Spectrometers

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 37

    72619-Gamma ray spectrometers are an important element of nuclear and elementary particle physics experiments. However, the performance of the detection systems used in these experiments is often limited by the properties of presently available detectors. This project will investigate a new design for cadmium zinc telluride (CZT) detectors that promises to provide high energy resolution and high ...

  7. Fast, High Resolution PET Detector

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    72085-Proton Emission Technology (PET) is a powerful imaging tool that can provide diagnosis for symptoms of diseases such as Alzheimer¿s, cancer, head trauma, and stroke. However, the performance of current clinical PET systems is limited by available detector technology, and improved PET instrumentation will be needed to exploit the full potential of this promising technique. This project wil ...

  8. A New N+ Contact for Germanium Strip Detectors

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 37

    72157-Germanium strip detectors are very promising for X-ray and g-ray imaging with high resolution. However, existing n+ lithium electrodes prevent the full potential of high purity germanium (HPGe) strip detectors from being exploited in nuclear physics experiments as well as in many other applications. This project will investigate a new approach, using new semiconductor processing techniques ...

  9. A Design of a New Readout Sensor for SPECT

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 5

    72486-With the ever increasing number of smaller animals, such as mice and rats, being used as human disease models, the demand for small animal imaging also has increased. In particular, the pharmaceutical industry requires the in vivo quantification of biological processes, to measure the mechanism of action of a pharmacological agent and its concentration at the site of action. High-resolutio ...

  10. Very Large, High Gain APDs for Particle Physics

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 43

    73066-For several decades, photo-multiplier tubes (PMT) have been the key technology for sensing light in most high energy physics research operations. Although extraordinarily successful, PMT technology has a number of limitations: large PMTs cannot be mass produced, they cannot operate under pressures exceeding a few atmospheres, their sensitivity is limited over a small wavelength band, their ...
