  1. Fluorescence sensors of heavy metal ions

    SBC: Altair Center, Llc.            Topic: N/A

    "ALTAIR Center proposes to develop a miniature, cost-effective fiber optic sensor array for detection of toxic heavy metal ions. The main detection principle is based on dual measurement of both absorption and fluorescence employing thin films ofporphyrin/polymer membrane. In Phase I of the project we studied the luminescence compounds and demonstrated that thin films of porphyrin-based membranes ...

  3. Nanoporous Ordered Conducting Polymer Ultracapacitors

    SBC: Fractal Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "Low-resistance high-surface-area electrodes, and tunable potential window through band gap tuning of electrode materials are key to achieving high performance capacitors. We have synthesized ordered intrinsically conducting polymers with high surface areaand copper-like conductivity using a proprietary process. Our assessment in this feasibility study, through extensive characterization of numero ...

  4. Reflex Triode

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    "Reflex triode bremsstrahlung sources potentially provide warm X-ray sources (20 keV to 500 keV), capable of generating high doses (~10 cal/g gold) over exposure areas of ~20 cm2. This needed capability allows experimental verification of warm X-ray inducedthermomechanical response, SGEMP, and box IEMP models for achieving component and system certification to hostile environments.In a reflex trio ...

  5. Highly Stable Polymer Electrolytes for 5 Volt Lithium Batteries

    SBC: PHOENIX INNOVATION, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The development of a truly solid state high power lithium battery is dependent upon the successful identification of a suitable solid polymer electrolyte. Polymer electrolytes hold the promise of allowing use of lithium metal anodes which could boost thetheoretcial energy density of batteries by as much as 35%. Addition of new high voltage cathodes would result in a high energy, high power lithiu ...

  7. Unified Bayesian Cluster Target Tracking and Discrimination

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "Most single- and multi-target tracking algorithms are designed to track point targets.However, in many real-world applications the targets of interest are not point targets butEXTENDED TARGETS and GROUP TARGETS, e.g. missile re-entry clusters.Under this effort we propose a systematic, fully probabilistic, and theoretically rigorousapproach to cluster target tracking and discrimination. Our approa ...
