  1. Light Source for Cavity Ring-Down Spectrometer

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Cavity Ring-Down (CRD) spectroscopy is developing into a precise tool for measuring gaseous contaminants in ultrahigh vacuum and other environments. Optimum sensitivity is obtained by driving the CRD spectrometer in the mid-IR part of the spectrum with about 100 mWatts of average power at 5 kHz and with pulse lengths of 10-50 nsec. Bandwidths of 100 MHz are required. There are no commercial lasers ...

  2. Optical Water Level Sensor

    SBC: CIENCIA INC            Topic: N/A

    Development of an optical water level sensor is proposed to solve some of the problems and limitations of current sounding tube/protective well acoustic sensors. By using light instead of sound, temperature gradient effects on the measurement are obviated. Furthermore, the proposed system eliminates the need for a sounding tube, protective well and associated temperature sensors, and does not requ ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. A Prototype System for Distributed Space-Weather Models and Applications

    SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Accurate and timely information about space weather has become essential for managing many technologies on which our lives depend (e.g., radio communications, Global Positioning Systems). A major limitation to accessing this information from NOAA and private vendors is the lack of well-defined, standardized methods for accessing data or running models remotely over the Internet. Northwest Research ...

  6. An Underwater, Video-Based, Stereoscopic Imaging and Measurement System

    SBC: Quest Integrated, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The development of a PC-based stereoscopic imaging and measuring system (SIMS) that will be suitable for underwater applications is proposed. There are three main objectives for the Phase 1 work: 1) to evaluate the requirements (accuracy, range, field of view, speed, potability, etc.) For a field-worthy, video-based SIMS; 2) to modify our existing stereo measurement system to accept video input an ...

  7. Simplified DNA Probe Identification of Harmful Algal Species

    SBC: Saigene Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Certain algal species have been identified as producing toxins which when ingested can cause illness and death in humans and many marine species. While it is possible and necessary to test for the actual toxins, this proposal describes the development of a rapid DNA probe based test for detection of toxin producing algal species. The test is semi-automated, easy-to-use, requires little technical t ...

  8. Transportation Planning Uses of Commercial Data

    SBC: Kjs Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    For more than three decades, transportation planners have relied on survey data collected specifically for the development of travel forecasting models, which are expensive to collect and maintain on an ongoing basis. There is a plethora of data collected for other reasons that could potentially support transportation planning which is becoming more accessible through technological advances. Use ...

  10. Effects Of Naked Dna And Subunit Ipnv

    SBC: DiagXotics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Infectious pancreatic necrosis virus (IPNV) causes an economically significant, untreatabledisease in salmonid fish. Immunization appears to be the most promising control method, butcommercial vaccines are not readily available. We have previously developed and tested arecombinant IPNV vaccine in rainbow trout and brook trout fry. Although the vaccinesignificantly reduced fish mortality, it di ...
