Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/01/01 - 12/01/03

DESCRIPTION (Provided by Applicant): This proposal concerns the search for optimal scintillator crystals for positron emission tomography (PET). At present, the availability and performance of PET systems is limited chiefly by the unavailability of scintillators with sufficiently short attenuation lengths...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 02/01/99 - 03/31/01

The problem of growing protein crystals with sufficiently high resolution for accurate structure determinations is so important that it has justified a major NASA program to grow protein crystals in microgravity. About 25% of the microgravity-grown crystals show significant improvement...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/01/96 - 08/31/99

This proposal concerns the search for improved scintillator crystals for positron emission tomography (PET) arrays. It is based on an earlier discovery, made jointly with the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, that PbSO4 crystals, although very difficult to grow, have better PET scintillation properties than any oth...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 92-2
Budget: 01/01/92 - 12/31/92
PI: Unavailable

TO SUPPORT THE GROWTH OF PROTEIN CRYSTALS IN MICRO-GRAVITY, THIS PROJECT WILL IMPROVE THE CONTROL OF NUCLEATION BY THE USE OF EPITAXIAL SUBSTRATES, INSTEAD OF SEED CRYSTALS OR SPONTANEOUS NUCLEATION, TO GREATLY SIMPLIFY FLIGHT APPARATUS AND INCREASE EXPERIMENT RELIABILITY. SPECIFICALLY, THIS PROJECT WILL DEVELOP, EXPERIMENTALLY VERIFY, AND APPLY...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/30/91 - 05/31/92

This proposal concerns the search for, evaluation of, and commercial production of improved scintillator crystals for positron emission tomography (PET) arrays for medical research and the diagnosis of cancer and Alzheimer's disease. It is intended to complement and augment an existing Public Health Service NCI grant (R01 CA48002: "Search ...

Topic: 91-1
Budget: 01/01/91 - 12/31/91
PI: Unavailable

THIS PROJECT RESPONDS TO A NEED FOR LARGE-VOLUME, HIGH-DENSITY, HIGH-Z SCINTILLATOR CRYSTALS FOR ANTI-COINCIDENCE SHIELDING OF GAMMA-RAY ASTRONOMY DETECTORS. THE COMBINED REQUIREMENTS OF HIGH CAPTURE PROBABILITY AND ULTRASHORT COINCIDENCE WINDOWS (DECAY TIMES) CLOSELY RESEMBLE THE REQUIREMENTS FOR POSITRON EMISSION TOMOGRAPHY (PET) SCINTILLATORS...
