  1. High Speed Room Temperature IR Camera Based on Plasmon Physics

    SBC: Tanner Research, Inc.            Topic: ST051005

    It is desirable to make focal plane arrays (or imaging arrays) with reduced pitch; doing so enables smaller, cheaper and lighter camera systems that provide the same image resolution. Currently, the lower limit on pitch is set by electron/hole diffusion and light diffraction that results in crosstalk between neighboring pixels. Since electron hole pairs generated outside the depletion layer can ...

  2. Engineered Magnetic Nanoparticles for Advanced Biosensor Signal Processing and Detection of Waterborne Pathogens

    SBC: Engi-Mat Co.            Topic: 05NCERP1

    The contamination of water resources (drinking, recreational, and agricultural) in developed and/or developing countries, including the United States, necessitates a fast, reliable water safety detection method.  The potential use of biological weapons by terrorists to contaminate water supplies is a more recent development that poses additional challenges because such agents are ...

  3. Development of a Fine and Coarse Particulate Continuous Emissions Monitoring System

    SBC: Baldwin Environmental, Inc.            Topic: 05NCERP1

    In Phase I of this research project, Baldwin Environmental, Inc. (BEI) successfully demonstrated the feasibility of designing and producing a Fine and Coarse Particulate Monitoring Continuous Emissions Monitoring System (FCPMCEMS).  This system simultaneously measures and reports mass concentrations of fine and coarse particulate material using atmospheric dispersion simulation (A ...

  4. A Hybrid Pathogen Detection System

    SBC: VEGRANDIS, LLC            Topic: 05NCERP1

    Cryptosporidium is a resilient waterborne protozoan pathogen that causes gastrointestinal disease and is one of five major causes for 5 million deaths each year worldwide. Recently, a Cryptosporidium outbreak sickened more than 1,700 people, mostly children and teenagers, in New York. Cryptosporidium oocysts are of particular interest in the water industry because the infectious dose is low (1 to ...

  5. Identification and Sorting of Printed Wiring Boards (PWB) within an E-Waste Recycling Stream

    SBC: National Recovery Technologies LLC            Topic: 05NCERP1

    Electronic waste (e-waste) is one of the most rapidly growing waste problems worldwide.  Improper handling of e-waste results in vast amounts of toxic waste being sent to landfills, consequently leaching into the water supply.  Due to these concerns, e-waste recycling is a rapidly growing industry.  Unfortunately, most current e-waste recycling processes rely on either m ...

  8. Multiplexed Chemical Sensor for Water Security


    The goal of this Phase II research project is to provide municipal authorities and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency with a chemical sensor that can be multiplexed into water distribution systems to provide early warning of poisoned water supplies. This will be accomplished by developing surface-enhanced Raman (SER) sensors that can be integrated into water supply systems and coupled t ...

  10. Remote, Real-Time Monitor for Elemental Speciation of Air Particulates

    SBC: X-RAY OPTICAL SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 05NCERP1

    Air particulates have been identified as sources of primary and secondary health risks.  More than 5,000 air particulate monitoring stations have been established in the United States, mostly for measuring total mass and size distribution.  Real-time monitoring instruments for mass and size distribution are commercially available today.  The network of monitoring sta ...
