  1. Holographic Optical Cell Manipulation for Automated Development of Improved Yeast Strains for Ethanol Production

    SBC: Arryx, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Potentially insufficient corn stock supplies make necessary the development of industrial yeast strains for converting alternative cellulosic materials for renewable fuel sources. This project investigates the feasibility and develops the capability of using Holographic Optical Trapping as an automated manipulation tool for yeast cells, to characterize and evaluate yeast strains.

  2. Power Supply for Remote and Unattended Electrical Loads

    SBC: SmartSpark            Topic: N/A

    Conventional methods of providing power require expensive pole-drop utility connections, high replacement cost of battery-backup systems, other regular maintenance, or inordinate size and substandard reliability. The proposed device uses an optimized combination of battery and solar power, which when coupled with sophisticated power electronics circuits, is capable of supplying 50 W-hr/day of elec ...

  3. Development of a process methodology to determine the cost of ownership of instructional resources in relation to the benefits of improved student performance

    SBC: Progress Education Inc            Topic: N/A

    School reform efforts call for using scientific approaches to making decisions in education. Currently, data are available to inform decisions, but many educators are not well equipped to understand quantitative information, how to use it, and how to communicate quantitative results. During Phase I, we will conduct focus groups and surveys, and train educators to use data to help students succeed. ...
