Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Institute of Standards and Technology
Topic: 2005
Budget: 01/01/05 - 12/31/05
PI: Unavailable

Detector Technology will develop and manufacture a 10cm2 large format cone. The cone will be based on a ceramic substrate then coated with glass frit. The cone will then be attached to a standard single channel multiplier. Detector Technology will also investigate different low work function coatings to improve the first strike statistic of fluo...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Institute of Standards and Technology
Topic: 2004
Budget: 01/01/04 - 12/31/04

At present the need for a large area, 100 square centimeters or greater, soft x-ray fluorescence detector with high detection efficiency is required for material science and x-ray absorption spectroscopy. The current methods of detection used in x-ray absorption spectroscopy are subject to poor collection efficiency, large background and vacuum ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Commerce
Topic: 2003
Budget: 01/01/03 - 12/31/03

The goal of phase 1 was to create a channel electron multiplier that could be used in an array for configuration in the synchrotron beam application. In order to have little variance in first strike statistics contamination needed to be eliminated from the surface. This was accomplished with phase 1 research. During Phase 2 the primary objective...

Topic: 2002
Budget: 01/01/02 - 12/31/02

Channel electron multipliers are used in a variety of applications including synchrotron research facilities. It is imperative that channel electron multiplier technology be improved for this type of application. Currently, the manufacturing process of channel multipliers is very inconsistent. When running an array of detectors each detector mus...

Phase 2 SBIR

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

A UNIQUE INSTRUMENT NOW EXISTS THAT CAN BE USED TO FABRICATEMONOLITHIC, HIGH-GAIN MICROCHANNEL PLATES (MCPS) THROUGH THE "SHEARING" APPROACH. IT WILL ACCOMMODATE MCP BLANKS RANGING IN SIZE FROM 20MM TO 85MM DIAMETER. BY DESIGN, IT WILL PRODUCE BOTH "C" AND "J" TYPE PROFILE GEOMETRIES. PRESENT RESEARCH INDICATES THAT A CUSTOM BLANK IS REQUIRED WI...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 89-1
Budget: 01/01/89 - 12/31/89

A PROTOTYPE OF A REVOLUTIONARY NEW INSTRUMENT DESIGN HAS BEEN DEVELOPED AS A MANUFACTURING MEANS FOR BOTH LARGE AND SMALL FORMAT, HIGH GAIN MICROCHANNEL PLATES (MCP'S). THE METHOD USED FOR MANUFACTURE HAS BEEN CALLED THE SHEAR METHOD. CONSIDERABLE RESEARCH NEEDS TO BE PERFORMED TO ADDRESS THE MANY PARAMETERS WHICH GOVERN THE SUCCESSFUL APPLICATI...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 87-2
Budget: 01/01/87 - 12/31/87

HIGH GAIN, LARGE AREA MICROCHANNEL PLATES (MCP) PRESENTLY ARE LIMITED IN BOTH CAPABILITIES AND SIZE BY THE PRESENT MEANS OF MANUFACTURE. THE MAIN PROBLEM IS THAT THE COMPLEXITY OF SHEARING TO CURVE THE INDIVIDUAL CHANNELS INCREASES AS THE SIZE REQUIREMENTS INCREASE. BY A UNIQUE NEW MEANS OF MANUFACTURE, DETECTOR TECHNOLOGY, INC., PROJECTS THAT O...
