The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Gamma Ray Lens Feasibility Study

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

    Ganuna (7)-ray lenses are an advanced technology currently under development at Argonne National Laboratory for arms control application. The purpose of this proposal is to address whether y-ray lens technology can enable an improved system for imaging radioactive isotopes in patients. In nuclear medicine, it is often desirable to generate a y-ray image that shows the exact areas where an emitting ...

  3. Development of Accurate Test Kits for Malabsorption


    Accurate measurement of gastrointestinal absorption of various substances is important in bothresearch and diagnosis. In many cases, the acceptable general approach is the balance procedure. Thisprocedure suffers from the requirement for complete collection of stools over an extended period oftime. This limitation prevents widespread use of this otherwise desirable approach. The investigatorspropo ...

    SBC: BIO-IMAGING RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    1We are proposing a computerized tomographic (CT) dimensional measurement system that will remedy two of the major problems experienced by current methods: the distortions caused by CT artifacts, and the blurring caused by the system point - spread function (PSF). The distortions resulting from data nonlinearity will be corrected by a calibration process acting upon the x-ray data. The blurring er ...

  5. Micron Resolution Volume-Computed Tomography

    SBC: BIO-IMAGING RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Instrumentation that can provide microstructural characterization of medical grade polymers,fabrics, and composite materials is the proposed research's long term goal. One micron resolutionvolume computed tomography of test specimens can now be demonstrated by combining anNIST-developed x-ray microscope with BIR's volume CT capability. Micro VCT will be a valuable toolin the development of new med ...

  6. Fiber Optic Sensor for Cardiac Magnetic Field

    SBC: BIO-IMAGING RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We will adapt a non-cryogenic magnetic field sensor previously developed for defense purposesand apply it to magnetocardiography (MCG), the measurement of magnetic fields induced by electricalcurrents in the heart. As a single non-invasive sensor, this unit would have similar applications to theelectrocardiograph. When these units are assembled into a spatial array, the magnetic field can bemeasur ...

  7. Inspection of Ceramic Ball Bearings by Differential-Phase Acoustic Microscopy

    SBC: BIO-IMAGING RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed innovation is to apply differential phase acoustic microscopy to NDE inspection of ceramic Sn3N4 ball bearings. Differential phase acoustic microscopy is more sensitive than standard acoustic microscopy, and can provide the location and size of defects, which is a specific goal of the subtopic. The specific goal of this research is to assess the feasibility of differential phase acous ...

  8. Laser-Activated X-Ray Source

    SBC: BIO-IMAGING RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose a method of generating x-rays that will combine high instantaneous output of rotating-anode x-ray tubes with continuous cooling rates as great or greater than fixed-anode tubes. This combination can be achieved in a mechanically simple way, and will reduce spot wobble without vacuum seals, vacuum bearings, deflecting field, or conventional cathodes, by either thermionic or photoemission ...

  9. Novel Compounds for the Treatment of Memory Disorders

    SBC: Chicago Institute For Neuro            Topic: N/A

    We have generated a monoclonal antibody, B6B21, and have shown that it significantlyenhances acquisition rates in hippocampus-dependent trace eyeblink conditioning in rabbits, halving thenumber of trials required to reach 80% conditioned responses. Previous studies, with a variety of modelsystems, have shown that B6B21 acts as a partial ago mst at the glycine site of the N-methyl-D-aspart-ate rece ...

  10. Message-Driven Portable Parallel Fortran

    SBC: PARALLEL SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a FORTRAN-based portable parallel programming system. This system will allow user programs to run unchanged on most MIMD machines with shared as well as non-shared memory. The unique aspects of this system will be (a) message driven execution for latency tolerance, (b) information sharing abstractions, (c) extensive support for reuse and modularity, (d) extensive support for ...
