L. 89–651; 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 filed within 20 days with the Statutory Import Programs Staff, U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, DC 20230. Applications may be examined between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. in Suite 4100W, U.S. Department of Commerce, Franklin Court Building, 1099 14th Street, NW., Washington, DC. Docket Number: 05–061. Applicant: University of Michigan, 2355 Bonisteel Boulevard, Ann Arbor, MI 48109–2104. Instrument: Application Specific Integrated Circuit. Manufacturer: Ideas ASA, Norway. Intended Use: The instrument is intended to be used as a compatible accessory for a unique 3dimensional position sensitive CdZnTe semiconductor gamma–ray spectrometer. The article consists of a multi-channel charge sensing amplifier with very low noise of about 300 electrons rms for which three iterations have been developed in collaboration with Ideas ASA. The systems can get energy and 3D position information for not only single-interaction events, but for multiple-interaction events by using electron drift times. Excellent energy resolution for both single-interaction events (0.8% FWHM at 662 keV) and multiple-interaction events (1.3% FWHM at 662 keV) has been achieved. A new scalable detector array system with plug–in electronics is required for further development of the spectrometer. Application accepted by Commissioner of Customs: December 27, 20005.

No instrument of equivalent scientific value to the foreign instrument, for such purposes as it is intended to be used, is being manufactured in the United States. Reasons: The foreign instrument provides: stable imaging at temperatures down to 4 Kelvin with low thermal drift rates (<1 angstrom per hour) and low rms vibration amplitudes (< 0.005 angstrom in a 300 Hz bandwidth). It also has the capability of depositing molecules on the sample in the microscope stage at temperatures down to 4 Kelvin and tip retraction and return to the same area after deposition of molecules.
