  1. Spectrally Pure Eye-Safe Laser (SPESL)

    SBC: Luminit LLC            Topic: N/A

    To help with the detection of carbon dioxide, methane, and certain gaseous pollutants, NIST is seeking narrow linewidth, tunable and band-selectable, diode-pumped solid-state lasers in the wavelength region between 1550 nm and 1650 nm. Luminit proposes to develop the Spectrally Pure Eye-Safe Laser (SPESL). The SPESL is an Er:YAG laser, side pumped by semiconductor lasers in the erbium absorption b ...

  2. Tunable Electro-Optic Laser Scanner (TEOLS)

    SBC: Luminit LLC            Topic: N/A

    In Phase I, Luminit will demonstrate Tunable Electro-Optic Laser Scanner (TEOLS) feasibility by conducting technical analysis and simulation and initially test a proof-of-concept prototype. In Phase II, Luminit plans to develop an engineering prototype TEOLS that can be incorporated into existing NIST LADAR imager hardware prototypes for testing and validation, leading to a rapid 3D LADAR imager d ...

  3. Aerolized Vaccine Dose Analysis (AVIDA) System

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    To address the NIST need for an instrument to detect aerosolized-droplet dose delivery of vaccines, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new Aerosolized Vaccine Dose Analysis (AVIDA) system based on the combination of planar laser-induced fluorescence, laser diffraction, microscope optics, and an advanced image processing algorithm. This system, using temporal image splitting, p ...

  4. Low-Noise, High-Efficiency Geiger Photodiode for Quantum Cryptography

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The mechanics of single photons can be used to entangle information carry quantum states, allowing for quantum computation or random number generation. Quantum communication utilizes the quantum nature of single-photons to retain information, particularly in the form of quantum key distribution protocols. High-efficiency, low-noise single photon detection at high efficiency is critical for the app ...

  5. Thermo-focusing Chromatography- High Sensitivity Chromatography for Chemical Analysis

    SBC: SEACOAST SCIENCE, INC.            Topic: 9050140TT

    Seacoast Science will license, for the purpose of technology transfer, the NIST patent “Recirculating Temperature Wave Focusing Chromatography,” with the goal of successfully implementing the method into a unique, low-cost gas chromatograph for environmental pollution monitoring. In the U.S., there are over 425,000 brownfields and 1,320 Superfund sites where noxious chemicals have been used an ...

  6. Ultra-High Precision Laser Isotope Monitor for 13CO2, CO180 and CO170

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 83

    Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to the atmosphere are primary drivers of global climate change and hence there is a crucial need to quantify their sources and sinks. A general technique to constrain source and sink strengths is the analysis of the relative proportions of isotopic variants of GHG's. These measurements must be performed with extremely high precision. The gold standard technique, i ...

  7. Multipurpose Atmospheric/Underwater Expendable Dropsonde

    SBC: Boston Engineering Corporation            Topic: 84

    There are currently no inexpensive observing systems that detect temperature, salinity and currents under the ocean's surface - all important factors in predicting the intensity of hurricanes. Boston Engineering proposes to develop the Multi-Purpose Above Surface/Below Surface Expendable Dropsondes (MASED). Our design builds on the highly successful air dropsondes already in use, combined with a ...

  8. Automated Analysis of Fisheries Information from Digital Stills

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 82

    Toyon proposes development of a system which performs automated analysis of images for fish population monitoring and fishing regulation enforcement applications. The proposed system is capable of processing images collected from aircraft, including unmanned aerial vehicles, as well as images collected using boat-mounted or handheld cameras used to observe fish catches landed on the decks of vess ...

  9. Surveying Earth's Gravity with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: 91

    During the Phase I program, Aurora conducted a comprehensive survey of potential platforms that included government owned and furnished UAVs and manned aircraft as well as Aurora’s Centaur Optionally Piloted Aircraft (OPA). The survey concluded, in part, that UAVs offer a significant improvement in data collection capability when compared to manned aircraft that are currently fielded by NOAA. ...

  10. Improving Commercial Fish Meal Free Aquaculture Diets

    SBC: Bell Aquaculture            Topic: 92

    Domestic US aquaculture is moving toward fishmeal replacement in aquafeeds with a variety of alternative protein sources including plant-based, terrestrial and marine proteins. In our Phase I work we showed the feasibility of modifying the protein quality of several alternate protein sources, specifically animal byproduct meals, and its potential significant impacts on marine fish production. Th ...
