38 Awards Won

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Oak Ridge National Laboratory

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 26c
Budget: 02/21/17 - 02/20/18
PI: Feller W.

Neutron-sensitive microchannel Plates (MCPs) are now providing state-of-the-art user-based, high spatial resolution neutron imaging systems at several US government neutron research facilities as well as university research reactors. Using enriched 10B, thermalized neutron detection efficiencies exceeding 50% have been demonstrated, and cold neu...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 09b
Budget: 04/15/16 - 04/14/17

NOVA Scientific, Inc. proposes a Phase IIB SBIR program to further develop, refine, and commercialize a compact solid-state epithermal neutron imaging detector based on microchannel plates (MCPs), having (1) high detection efficiency well into the epithermal neutron energy range, and (2) the flexibility of having an externally-mounted pixelated ...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of California, Berkeley

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 09A-2014
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

NOVA Scientific proposes the development of efficient position sensitive detectors capable of time-tagging epithermal energy neutrons with high accuracy and efficiency. These devices will be able to perform energy-resolved imaging at the pulsed neutron sources and detect every neutron with spatial resolution of & lt; 60 m and timing resolution &...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 18A-2014
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

The project is developing a new sensor technology that can measure carbon dioxide levels with precision that matches or exceeds the state-of-the-art performance, but will reduce the price dramatically, and will for the first time enable instruments deployed in remote locations to operate unattended for long periods of time. A laboratory prototyp...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of California, Berkeley

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 09A-2013
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

A number of unique non-destructive testing techniques and fundamental research studies are enabled by the modern bright pulsed neutron sources. In addition to all the methods previously developed at continuous neutron sources the pulsed structure of neutron beam enables a number of novel methods with the measurement of neutron energy th...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-11-096
Budget: 09/24/12 - 03/23/13

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): NOVA Scientific proposes to adapt a powerful new type of neutron diffraction instrumentation for biological applications, a neutron counting and imaging detector called the MCP/Medipix detector. The detector offers much higher spatial and timing resolution, as well as higher count rate capability (10-100 MHz)...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Oak Ridge National Laboratory

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 18 A-2012
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

NOVA Scientific, Inc., teamed with the Detector Group of the ORNL Neutron Sciences Directorate (NScD) of Oak Ridge National Laboratory, proposes to construct very large area Microchannel Plate neutron detectors. Larger format (20 cm square) tileable detectors will serve an exceptionally broad range of government agencies from neutron scattering ...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Oak Ridge National Laboratory

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 18 A-2011
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

NOVA Scientific, Inc., teamed with the Electronics Group of Oak Ridge National Laboratory, proposes to construct very large area Microchannel Plate neutron detectors. The applications of these much larger format detectors will serve an exceptionally broad range of government agencies from neutron scattering detectors for DOE to nuclear material ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Homeland Security
Topic: 2008
Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08

NOVA Scientific proposes Phase II development of a solid-state, high-efficiency neutron detection alternative to 3He gas tubes employing neutron-sensitive microchannel plates (MCPs) containing 10B and/or Gd. This program supports the DNDO development of technologies designed to detect and interdict nuclear weapons or illicit nuclear materials. T...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of California, Berkeley

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2008
Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08

New neutron radiographic imaging facilities at the Spallation Neutron Source will require detectors with better position resolution and rate capability than available with existing technologies. This project will develop a novel type of compact thermal neutron collimator for these detectors. These compact collimators can be employed to effecti...
