Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Jinjun Sun
Award Amount: $63,669.00
Abstract:
A number of industrial processes, including incinerators and metallurgical processes, typically emit large numbers of fine particles. measurements at an operating sewage sludge incinerator have shown that heavy metals (including cadmium, chromium, nickel, lead, and zinc) are concentrated in the… More

Generation and Deposition of Nanoscale Particles for Reference Wafers

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1995 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOC
Principal Investigator: James Jinjun Sun , Manager, R&D
Award Amount: $49,767.00
Abstract:
In the semiconductor industry, standard reference wafers are needed for calibrating wafer surface scanners. Scanners are currently available for detecting particles down to a lower size limit of approximately 100 nm (0.1 um). Advanced wafer scanners capable of detecting particles to 60 nm will be… More

Lightweight, Low-Power Cascade Impactor for Aircraft Sampling

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1997 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: David Thimsen
Award Amount: $475,238.00
Abstract:
Particle Size Distributions are fundamental to any study of aerosols. If chemical species in the aerosol size ranges are to be determined, the cascade impactor is the instrument of choice. Research quality cascade impactors are commercially available but are not optimized for low weight and low… More

Single-Particle, Angular Light-Scattering Apparatus for Aircraft Sampling

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2002 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: William Dick, Senior Engineer
Award Amount: $69,989.00
Abstract:
"The objective of MSP's three-phase SBIR program is to design and build a state-of-the-art Multi-Angle Light-Scattering Spectrometer integrated with a high performance inlet and sampling system for accurate in-flight particle monitoring. The system wouldbe kept small in physical size by the use of… More

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Daryl Roberts, Director of Research
Award Amount: $0.00
Abstract:
MSP Corporation proposes to develop a single-particle Multi-angle Light-Scattering (MLS) spectrometer for use on board an aircraft to measure the phase function, sphericity, and size of individual aerosol particles from 0.3 um to 15 um. Phase function willbe measured from 10o to 170o using a… More

A Fast and Accurate System to Characterize Particle Emission from Gas Turbine Engines

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: James Marti, Senior Manager, Research
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
Routine Air Force operations generate particulate emissions at bases around the country. Many bases are located in air quality non-attainment zones, and at these locations all air emissions are coming under increasing scrutiny. The current method to test particle mass emission from aircraft… More

Award Amount: $142,477.00
Abstract:
MSP is introducing in this proposal a practical approach to a family of cascade impactors capable of real-time measurement of the size-distributed mass concentration of particles in the atmosphere. Further, because of the high sensitivity of the proposed mass transducers, these impactors will also… More

Real-Time Size-Distributed Measurement of Aerosol Mass Concentration

Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Francisco Romay, Dr.
Award Amount: $989,024.00
Abstract:
In atmospheric aerosol research, size-distributed aerosol samples are often collected with airborne instrumentation, but are not analyzed in any manner until after they are brought to a laboratory on the ground. The information thus obtained is averaged for all the locations covered during the… More
