  1. Ge-Si superlattice nanowires for high efficiency thermoelectric devices

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: AF10BT26

    ABSTRACT: The widespread use of thermoelectric devices to scavenge waste heat is currently limited due to two major reasons low ZT and the incompatibility of the material or process to form high-density thermojunctions needed for high-efficiency thermoelectric power generators. In this program, Agiltron Inc. in collaboration with Marquette University proposes to develop germanium-silicon mechano ...

  8. Precise fabrication of photonic integrated systems using low cost nanoimprint process

    SBC: Sinoora Inc.            Topic: OSD10T006

    In this STTR proposal, we propose to develop a cost-effective and high-fidelity nanoimprint process for the fabrication of integrated photonics devices. VLSI photonics applications require a hig-level of control on device-to-device uniformity. Nanoimprint lithography (NIL) holds promise to overcome the current technological challenges in lithography while being cost effective at the same time. One ...

  10. Automated Microscopic Malaria Diagnosis

    SBC: Diagnostic Vision Corporation            Topic: A08T036

    This SSTR research project will develop a computerized microscope based imaging system that will allow location and quantization of malarial parasites. The system will automatically scan a blood smear, locating the red cells and parasites. A digital image display will allow interaction with an operator to confirm or reject objects. In Phase II the initial effort to identify trophozoites will be ...
