  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. Development of Ara Feed Formulation for Improving Growth and Survival of Atlantic Salmon Smolt

    SBC: ABN            Topic: N/A

    In a standard aquaculture practice, smolts are transferred to ocean net pens without sufficient time period for osmotic adaptation, which results in significant losses to the farmer. In addition to high and unpredictable mortality rates, smolts are not able to grow optimally during their first 40-60 days in seawater. We are proposing to supplement salmon smolt feed with ARA, which may help in smol ...

  3. Development of Monoclonal and Polyclonal Antibodies Suitable for a Commercial Perfluorooctanoic Acid (PFOA) ELISA

    SBC: ABRAXIS, L.L.C.            Topic: N/A

    Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) is a synthetic chemical which does not occur naturally in the environment,it has been used in many commercial applications. A number of scientific findings since the late 1990's have elevated PFOAs to the category of great environmental concern beacuse of its persistence, and the potential for bioaccumulation and biomagnification. Effective environmental and health pr ...

  4. A2A Adenosine Receptors and Equine Sepsis

    SBC: ADENOSINE THERAPEUTICS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Endotoxemia (Sepsis) affects horses of all breeds and ages and is the leading causes of death in adult horses and foals. Consequently, its economic impact on the equine industry in the United States is devastating. This project seeks to develop new treatments for this disease.

  5. Methodology for Identification on High Value Biomass Feedstocks

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Up until the early twentieth century, several commodity chemicals were produced by the pyrolysis of hardwoods (e.g., methanol, acetic acid, acetone) or the extraction of softwoods (turpentine, terpenes, rosins, pitches, and tars). The expected long term increase in petroleum and natural gas prices will cause a gradual but steady return to biomass feedstocks over the next several decades. Other dri ...

  6. High Yield, High Efficiency Bio-Refining

    SBC: Advanced Materials and Processes            Topic: N/A

    Processing of vegetable oils is complicated by the need to remove free fatty acids. Washing with caustic is a viable process but is inefficient because fatty acids and caustic form soaps which cause emulsions. These emulsions cause a yield loss of 1-1.5% or 160-240 Million lb/yr of soybean oil alone. The purpose of this project is to improve yields and energy efficiency in vegetable oil processing ...

  8. Development of a Sensitive, Autonomous Quantum Cascade Laser-Based Monitor for Amonia

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Emission of ammonia to the atmosphere is a major environmental concern and a potential health hazard, but the accurate measurement of ammonia sources requires improved instrumentation. There is an immediate need for such instrumentation for both monitoring and research in agriculture, climate change, global warming, atmospheric chemistry, automobile monitoring, and health. Ammonia is a public heal ...

  9. Poly(Lactic Acid)/Starch Blend for a Degradable Agricultural Mulch Film

    SBC: AgRenew, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Agricultural mulch films are used for the production of vegetables and fruits. Thin plastic films (typically polyethylene) are spread along the rows of plants at the beginning of the growing season. Holes are made in the films to plant the seeds or seedlings. The use of mulch films speeds the ripening of crops, conserves moisture and fertilizer, and inhibits weed growth, fungus infection and insec ...
