Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF02-298
Budget: 11/20/03 - 11/20/05

Caviton has developed a new generation of microsensors utilizing microdischarge based emission spectroscopy. The microdischarge plasma is well suited for emission spectroscopy of gases introduced into the discharge, at atmospheric pressure. An optical fiber near the discharge couples the light from the discharge to a small spectrometer, and a ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N03-001
Budget: 08/07/03 - 02/07/04

Emission spectroscopy based microdischarge sensors will be adapted to a gas chromatography system for the rapid detection of chemical agents in the field. These systems will be tested to determine optimum column length for seperation and integration time. Microdischarge detectors are rapid, real-time sensors, capable of sub-parts per billion d...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF02-298
Budget: 07/22/02 - 04/22/03

Microdischarge based chemical sensing is a novel detection scheme that relies on extremely sensitive emission spectroscopy, without the need for expensive plasma sources and vacuum systems required in large scale plasmas. This technique has a broad range of capabilities due to its universal detection capabilities for small molecules. Additional...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF02-293
Budget: 05/30/02 - 03/01/03

Microdischarge based chemical sensing is a novel detection scheme that relies on extremely sensitive emission spectroscopy, without the need for expensive plasma sources and vacuum systems required in large scale plasmas. This technique proves particularly powerful for metals detection due to strong emission spectra from metals in a discharge. ...
