Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 08/15/97 - 04/14/98

Our long term goal is to develop a phantom for use in calibrating and measuring resolution of confocal microscopes using fiber optic technology. Modern microscopy is increasingly quantitative. Size of the observed objects is critical in a number of areas. Resolution is also a necessary parame...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 08/01/96 - 06/30/98

Description: Phase I of this research program has demonstrated the feasibility of producing useful fiber optic magnifiers designed to facilitate reading for low vision patients at a cost of less than $200. Phase II will continue the investigation of taper designs, materials, process variables and m...

Topic:
Budget: 01/01/94 - 09/30/94

Prototypes of an improved form of fiber-optic magnifier will be produced for use as low vision aids. These will be based on the use of fiber optic tapers having a magnification in the range of 2 to 4x and a field of coverage of the object space (such as a printed page) of up to 25 mm in diameter. The research will include the study of the sali...
