L. 89–651, as amended by Pub. L. 106– 36; 80 Stat. 897; 15 CFR part 301), we invite comments on the question of whether instruments of equivalent scientific value, for the purposes for which the instruments shown below are intended to be used, are being manufactured in the United States. Comments must comply with 15 CFR 301.5(a)(3) and (4) of the regulations and be postmarked on or before January 19, 2011. Address written comments to Statutory Import Programs Staff, Room 3720, U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, DC 20230.

Applicant: University of Chicago, Argonne LLC, 9700 South Cass Ave., Lemont, IL 60439. Instrument: Pilatus 100K Pixel VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:35 Dec 29, 2010 Jkt 223001 Detector System. Manufacturer: Dectris Ltd., Switzerland. Intended Use: The instrument will be used to study SmallAngle X-ray Scattering (SAXS) for chemical, biological, and materials science, time resolved diffraction, and x-ray surface diffraction for magnetic materials. The instrument is the first and only commercially available pixel array detector for x-ray applications. The instrument’s unique capabilities are a high detection efficiency (no readout noise and direct detection scheme), high dynamic range (20-bits), and fast readout speeds. Justification for DutyFree Entry: There are no instruments of the same general category being manufactured in the United States. Application accepted by Commissioner of Customs: December 6, 2010. Docket Number: 10–068. Applicant: University of Chicago, Argonne LLC, 9700 South Cass Ave., Lemont, IL 60439. Instrument: Pilatus 300K Pixel Detector System. Manufacturer: Dectris Ltd., Switzerland. Intended Use: The instrument will be used for wide angle SAXS, involving biological systems (proteins, RNA, DNA), catalysis reactions, and soft-condensed matter physics (e.g., ordering of polymers and colloidal suspensions). The instrument’s unique capabilities are a high detection efficiency (no readout noise and direct detection scheme), high dynamic range (20-bits), and fast readout speeds. Justification for Duty-Free Entry: There are no instruments of the same general category being manufactured in the United States. Application accepted by Commissioner of Customs: December 6, 2010. Docket Number: 10–069. Applicant: University of Minnesota School of Dentistry, 6–150 MoosT, 515 Delaware St., S E, Minneapolis, MN 55455. Instrument: Dental Imaging System: Cross-Polarization Swept-Source Optical Coherence Tomography with a MEMS Handpiece. Manufacturer: Santec Corporation, Japan. Intended Use: The main use for the instrument is to study the oral biofilm of dental decay in children. This custom made imaging system will image under resin composite dental fillings. The three crucial aspects of the instrument are size (the hand piece is 16 X 15 X 80 mm), speed (can operate at 30 kHz swept source speed), and image contrast (able to suppress the parallel polarization by 30 dB).

Intended Use: See notice at 75 FR 73034, November 29, 2010. Comments: None received. Decision: Approved. No instrument of equivalent scientific value to the foreign instrument, for such purposes as these instruments are intended to be used, was being manufactured in the United States at the time the instruments were ordered. Reasons: Each foreign instrument is an electron microscope and is intended for research or scientific educational uses requiring an electron microscope. We know of no electron microscope, or any other instrument suited to these purposes, which was being manufactured in the United States at the time of order of each instrument.
