  3. Programmable, Reconfigurable Silicon Photodiode Array Module

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 34c

    Many planned nextgeneration experiments in high energy physics, astroparticle physics, and nuclear physics need a plethora of photon detectors with singlephoton sensitivity, large dynamic range, and accessibility throughout experiment lifetime. These requirements constrain the sensor: low sensitivity against temperature and bias fluctuations; very compact; very robust; cheap; insensitive to magn ...

  4. Low-Cost, High Efficiency Integration of Solid-State Lighting and Building Controls Using a Packet Energy Transfer (PET) Power Distribution System

    SBC: VoltServer            Topic: 03a

    Solid state lighting has not yet taken off in commercial buildings due to its high relative installed cost. On a normalized basis, solid state lighting replacement lamps are on the order of two times more expensive than equivalent compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs), and five times more expensive than an equivalent downlight fixture. An additional barrier relates to the performance and cost of the dr ...

  5. TAU Commander: An Intuitive Interface for the TAU Performance Analysis System

    SBC: ParaTools INC            Topic: 02b

    The Department of Energy and other federal agencies have made significant investments in software performance engineering tools, which can be complex and difficult to use. Novice users first encountering a tools complexity and vast array of features are intimidated and easily frustrated. There is also a lack of advanced problem identification capabilities so users rely heavily on their o ...

  6. Digital Silicon Photomultiplier Readout Circuit

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 42b

    The need for ever more sensitive, compact, rugged, and inexpensive optical sensors is particularly acute in the fields of homeland security, biological sciences, nuclear medicine, and nuclear and highenergy physics. The ability to detect the spatial location and time of arrival of single photons with increased accuracy represents the ultimate goal in optical detection for many of these application ...

  7. Low SWAP LIDAR Instrument for Arctic Ice Sheet Mass Balance Monitoring

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 17a

    The Arctic sea ice cover plays a major role in governing the exchange of energy between the ocean and atmosphere in the Polar Regions. As such, observations of ice extent and thickness, including temporal growth and melt cycles, improves our understanding of the ongoing global climate changes, and enhances our ability to predict future changes. Despite continual improvements in global climate mode ...

  8. DGPS-Based Trilateration Positioning Receiver

    SBC: Swaszek Peter            Topic: 07FH1

    Positioning and navigation have become a mainstay of everyday life in the U.S.; applications of interest include navigation of vehicles of all kinds, infrastructure mapping, and safety of life systems. Many of these recent applications have become possible through the GPS. With the recognized vulnerabilities of GPS, it is evident that equivalent backup systems must be developed. One possible so ...

  9. Q-Trap: In-transit detection of bioinvasive insects in intermodal shipping containers.

    SBC: APTIV            Topic: N/A

    This sensitive insect sensor will run 24 hours per day, every day that cargo is in transit, attracting insects to a containment surface where they remain for immediate detection and identification when inspectors gain entry to the container. Flying insects will be waiting, ready to be counted on arrival, rather than hidden within the cargo. An increase in the availability, timeliness, accuracy and ...

  10. Improvement of The Yield and Quality of Poplar Biomass for the United States Bio Fuels Industry

    SBC: GREENWOOD RESOURCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Hybrid poplar plantations will play a large role in the supply of cellulosic feedstock, in meeting the Nation's 30x30 goals for the renewable transportation fuels industry. The success of the poplar plantation industry will be contingent on elite plant material that has undergone hybridization for improved agronomic characteristics. Hybridization between the cottonwoods and the poplars has been th ...
