  1. SBIR Phase I: ACIM deBonder: Thin Film Integrity Testing using controlled microcavitation

    SBC: Uncopiers, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop a new method of measuring how strongly a thin film anchors to its substrate. To date no method exists that can truly measure thin film adhesion. The Acoustic Coaxing Induced Microcaviation (ACIM) deBonder uses controlled microcavitation to directly reveal a thin film's adhesion strength by subjecting it to controlled erosi ...

  2. SBIR Phase I: ACIM Wafer Saver: A novel CMP slurry monitor

    SBC: Uncopiers, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project is targeted to save semiconductor wafers from being deeply scratched by unchecked large errant agglomerates in chemical mechanical planarizing or polishing (CMP) slurries. CMP has become the method of choice for restoring the surface trueness of wafers at all stages of integrated circuit manufacture. No method currently exists that can implem ...

  5. SBIR Phase I: Feasibility of On-line Metalloid Recovery in Gasification Systems

    SBC: Microbeam Technologies            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will investigate the feasibility of developing a technology to optimize accumulation and subsequent removal of a valuable element from integrated gasification combined-cycle (IGCC) systems. IGCC is a highly efficient, low-emissions technology that uses coal and other feed stocks to produce electricity, process heat, and high-value fuels and c ...

  6. SBIR Phase I: Integrated Fire Modeling Software

    SBC: Thunderhead Engineering Consultants, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR project will develop an integrated fire modeling software package for use in building design and accident analysis. Modeling fires using a rigorous, scientific approach makes it possible to predict the course of an evolving fire and its impact on the building occupants, contents, and structure. The software will help designers implement new fire safety codes and standards that allow the ...

  8. SBIR Phase I: Studies on Preparation and Reactivity of Surface Derivatized NanoActive Metal Oxides

    SBC: NanoScale Materials, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop new surface derivatized reactive nanoparticles. These nanoparticles are expected to be highly active adsorbents and should be important in a number of applications. In the project, attention will be focused on preparing nanoparticles containing Lewis acid or base centers. The chemical modification involves introducing Lew ...

  9. SBIR Phase I:High-Rate Production of Nano-Architectured Hybrid Oxide Materials for Lithium Battery Cathodes

    SBC: Nanotek Instruments, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will demonstrate the feasibility of a novel method, Reactive Vapor Deposition (RVD), which is capable of mass producing thin-film, meso-porous and nano-phased cathode materials for use in lithium-ion and lithium-metal batteries. Theoretical calculations and a primitive bench-top set-up have given the initial indication that this highly versa ...

  10. SBIR Phase II: Advanced Controlled-Impedance Transfemoral Knee/Ankle Prosthesis

    SBC: MOTION CONTROL, INC            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project aims to develop a transfemoral prosthesis which will allow wearers to walk and run more smoothly, with greater stability and less effort. Typically, transfemoral amputees have difficulty achieving a natural gait, thus causing discomfort and greater energy expenditure. It is expected that the development of this advanced prosthesis wil ...
