QUANTUM-ENABLED FLOW CYTOMETER

NIST Inventors
Sergey Polyakov
patent description We invented a flow cytometer that can self-calibrate in an absolute way that can reach the sensitivity for quantification and enumeration of a single and small number of biological markers per a biological entity. The cytometer uses a photon-number resolving detector (or a

Optomechanical Reference

NIST Inventors
Gordon A. Shaw and Jacob Taylor
A mechanical sensor incorporating an optical cavity is used to provide a mass and/or force reference from a known or characterized circulating optical power in the optical cavity. The radiation pressure force in the optical cavity is used to actuate the mechanical sensor. The optical cavity in put

CALIBRATION APPARATUS AND CALIBRATING A LASER DOPPLER VIBROMETER

NIST Inventors
Michael Gaitan , Jon Geist and Akobuije Chijioke
patent description Our results show that this approach is immediately useful as a tool for characterizing the bandwidth of an LDV as a system together with its acquisition and control electronics and amplifiers. Our future work is focused on further improvements on the system design and carrying out
