  1. BIOPOLYMER PRODUCTION FROM WASTEWATER SLUDGES FOR ENCAPSULATION AND OTHER APPLICATIONS

    SBC: Health & Environment Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE TASKS ASSOCIATED WITH THE SOUND MANAGEMENT AND DISPOSAL OF SLUDGES FROM INDUSTRIAL AND MUNICIPAL WASTEWATER TREATMENT OPERATIONS ARE COMPLEX AND EXPENSIVE. THE RECOVERY OF VALUABLE RESOURCES FROM SLUDGES MUST BE AN IMPORTANT INTENT OF THE SLUDGE MANAGEMENT TECHNOLOGIES OF THE FUTURE, IF THE COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH WASTE DISPOSAL OPERATIONS ARE TO BE CONTAINED. THE PROPOSED RESEARCH IS AIMED AT D ...

  2. CHLORELLA AND ITS VIRUSES AS AN EXPERIMENTAL PLANT SYSTEM

    SBC: Npi            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED RESEARCH IS DIRECTED TOWARD ACCESSING THE FEASIBILITY OF USING THE GREEN ALGAE CHLORELLA AND ITS INFECTION BY A NATURALLY OCCURRING VIRUS AS AN EXPERIMENTAL PLANT SYSTEM. THE VIRUS, PARAMECIUM BURSARIA CHLORELLA VIRUS-1, PBCV-1, WILL BE INVESTIGATED TO DETERMINE ITS POTENTIAL AS A MOLECULAR VEHICLE TO INTRODUCE FOREIGN DNA INTO PLANT CELLS. SPECIFICALLY, ANALYSIS OF VIRAL MUTANTS AND ...

  3. DEVELOPMENT OF AN ULTRASONIC FILTER

    SBC: Technical research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    TRA PROPOSES THE DEVELOPMENT OF A NOVEL, NON-CAKING ULTRASONIC FILTER. THE DEVICE USES STANDARD FILTER MEMBRANES PLACED IN AN ACOUSTIC FIELD THAT TRAPS AND TRANSPORTS PARTICLES AWAY FROM THE FILTER SURFACE. BOTH SOLID AND FLUID PARTICLES SUSPENDED IN A FLUID MEDIUM MAY BE ACTED UPON BY THE MOVING PRESSURE SURFACES. PARTICLES SIZED BETWEEN 0.5 AND 0.1 MICROMETRES HAVE BEEN TRANSPORTED BY THIS TECHN ...

  4. HIGH SPEED GALIUM ARSENIDE DESIGN TOOL

    SBC: BONNEVILLE SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    INTEREST IN GALIUM ARSENIDE (GAAS) INTEGRATED CIRCUITS (IC) GROWING RAPIDLY BECAUSE THEY ARE VERY FASTAND RESISTANT TO RADIATION. HOWEVER, SOME SIGNIFICANT PROBLEMS ARE STILL OF CONCERN. FIRST, THE INCREASED SPEED OF THIS TECHNOLOGY HAS LEAD TO TIMING PROBLEMS IN CIRCUIT DESIGN. WITH THIS TECH- NOLOGY THE GATE SWITCHING SPEEDS HAVE BEEN INCREASED TO WHERE THEY CAN BE EQUIVALENT TO THE WIRE TRANSMI ...

  5. IDENTIFICATION OF THE MOLECULAR BIOLOGY AND GENETICS OF ALUMINUM TOLERANCE

    SBC: Npi            Topic: N/A

    ENVIRONMENTAL STRESSES ARE A MAJOR FOCUS IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF ECONOMICALLY IMPROVED CROP CULTIVARS BUT TO DATE LITTLE PROGRESS HAS BEEN MADE IN DEVELOPING PROCESSES WHICH CAN IMPROVE ON THE UNDERSTANDING OF STRESS TOLERANCE OR AID IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF STRESS TOLERANT CULTIVARS. THE PROPOSED RESEARCH DEVELOPS A COMPREHENSIVE APPROACH TO UNDERSTANDING STRESS TOLERANCE. ALUMINUM TOXICITY HAS BEEN C ...

  6. IMPROVED CELL AND TISSUE CULTURE SYSTEMS FOR MAIZE.

    SBC: Npi            Topic: N/A

    PRELIMINARY LABORATORY WORK HAS IDENTIFIED TWO FACTORS WHICH EFFECT THE EASE OF INITIATION OF EMBRYOGENIC CULTURES OF MAIZE AND THE EASE OF MAINTENANCE OF SUCH CULTURES. THESE TWO FACTORS ARE DESCRIBED IN THE PROPOSAL. S-AZACYTIDINE APPEARS TO EXTEND THE WINDOW DURING WHICH TISSUE IS COMPETENT TO FORM EMBRYOGENIC CALLUS. THIS FACT MAY BE EXPLOITED TO INITITATE EMBRYOGENE CULTURES FROM OTHER TISSUE ...

  7. LABORATORY APPROACH TO EVALUATE THERMOMECHANICAL PROPER- TIES OF ROCK JOINTS

    SBC: Terra Tek Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1987 National Science Foundation
  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. SBIR Phase I: Bio-based Design of Structural Ceramics

    SBC: Javelin3D, LLC            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will identify materials with desirable properties and performance standards. Rapid advances in communication technology, flight-based transportation, medical components and military strategy due to rapidly changing global alliances is pushing a need for materials that goes beyond current capabilities. This project will use advanced ...
