Award List:

Micro-burner Based Flame Ionization Detectors for Micro-scale Gas Chromatographs

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Research Institution: TRUSTEES UNIV. OF ILLINOIS
Principal Investigator: Byunghoon Bae, Senior Research Engineer
Award Amount: $100,000.00
RI Contact: Kathy Young
Abstract:
Micro-Gas Chromatographs (micro-GC) have the potential of providing a fieldable device that could 1) identify chemical threats in a battlefield, 2) provide assessment of warfighter health status, chemical exposure, stress level, and hydration, but we need better detectors if this potential is to… More

In Situ Lunar Surface Measurements Via Miniature Gas Chromatography

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Junghoon Yeom, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,999.00
Abstract:
The Lunar Exploration Analysis Group (LEAG) has placed a high priority on determining the nature, distribution and transport of volatiles on the moon. The objective of this proposal is to create chip scale gas chromatographs for lunar exploration. Under DARPA support, Cbana has created a new… More

Micro GC's for Contaminant Monitoring in Spacecraft Air

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Qingmei Chen, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,999.00
Abstract:
The objective of this proposal is to create new gas chromatographs (GCs) for contaminant monitoring in spacecraft air that do not require any reagents or special carrier gases. Under DARPA support, Cbana has created a new class of microGCs that are smaller than ever before and yet show performance… More

Micro-burner Based Flame Ionization Detectors for Micro-scale Gas Chromatographs

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / STTR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Research Institution: University of Illinois
Principal Investigator: Byunghoon Bae, Senior Scientist
Award Amount: $727,592.00
RI Contact: Mark A. Shannon
Abstract:
Based on the successful result of the developed micro-FID that was achieved in the Phase I, we propose to integrate a micro-gas analyzer and an optimized micro-FID to obtain the highest signal to noise ratio with a minimum usage of hydrogen for a portable

Nanoporous Metal Organic Framework Filters for Removal of Gaseous Pollutants

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: EPA
Principal Investigator: Zheng R. Ni
Award Amount: $70,000.00
Abstract:
The objective of this project is to evaluate the feasibility of using some newly discovered materials, water-stable metal-organic frameworks (MOF), as filters for pollutants common in indoor air. By way of background, recent Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA)-supported work from… More

Micro GC's for Contaminant Monitoring in Spacecraft Air

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Qingmei Chen, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $599,999.00
Abstract:
Based on the successful separation of 20 compounds using a 1 m coated microcolumn in Phase I, we propose to design a new micro-gas chromatograph (microGC) system to separate and detect of all contaminants listed in NASAs "Spacecraft Maximum Allowable Concentrations for Airborne Contaminants… More
