5 Awards Won

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 2006
Budget: 01/01/06 - 12/31/06

Potentially insufficient corn stock supplies make necessary the development of industrial yeast strains for converting alternative cellulosic materials for renewable fuel sources. This project investigates the feasibility and develops the capability of using Holographic Optical Trapping as an automated manipulation tool for yeast cells, to chara...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-02-25
Budget: 08/11/04 - 06/30/05

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Manipulation of objects on a microscopic scale can be done conveniently with a device known as a laser or optical tweezers. While laser trapping was originally devised for trapping Rayleigh particles (i.e. particles much less than the wavelength of the incident light) it's ability to manipulate biological ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-00-18
Budget: 06/17/02 - 06/16/03

Optical trapping with laser tweezers has proven to be a useful device for manipulating objects on a microscopic scale. Many systems of interest require multiple optical traps and several methods have been developed to achieve multiple trap configurations. However all of these methods for increasing the number of traps make the optical system inc...
