Download as PDF jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 208 / Friday, October 27, 2006 / Notices Advice received from the: Air Force Research Lab. Docket Number: 06–037. Applicant: Wesleyan University, Middletown, CT 06459–0170. Instrument: Micromanipulators and Control System, Temperature Control and Moveable Top Plate . Manufacturer: Scientifica, United Kingdom. Intended Use: See notice at 71 FR 42632, July 27, 2006. Reasons: The foreign instrument provides sub–micron precision and stability so as to allow the manipulators and moveable table to record neurons electrically in whole– cell patch–clamp mode, with a heater to maintain in vivo temperatures. An electrode can penetrate the neuronal membrane allowing electrical control of the neuron. The manipulators, movable table and heater are computer controlled to automatically guide the manipulators back to preset positions. Advice received from: The National Institutes of Health. Docket Number: 06–041. Applicant: University of Illinois at Chicago, Chicago, IL 6067–7059. Instrument: Beam Stabilizing System. Manufacturer: Laser Laboratorium Gottingen, Germany. Intended Use: See 71 CFR 42633, July 27, 2006. Reasons: The instrument is intended to be used with a KrF Laser in order to improve the beam quality of the laser, maximizing the possibility of a uniform beam with an even wavefront for ultraviolet operation at 248 nm with extension of operation into the x–ray range of 0.29 nm for general studies of the interaction of intense radiation with matter. Advice received from: The National Institutes of Health. Docket Number: 06–044. Applicant: Columbia University, New York, NY. Instrument: Ultra–High Vacuum Low Temperature Scanning Tunneling Microscope. Manufacturer: Omicron Nano Technology, Germany. Intended Use: See 71 FR 42633, July 27, 2006. Reasons: The foreign instrument provides: 1. A fully cryogenic STM that is directly connected to a liquid helium cryostat at 4 K, with a hold time of 15 hours before recharging is necessary 2. Cooling of both sample and tip for operation and measurement at 4 K with spatial sample/tip instrumental drift rates of less than 1 billionth of an inch per hour. 3. Tip manipulation and transfer inside the ulta–high vacuum chamber without exposure to ambient air conditions. Docket Number: 06–045. Applicant: Purdue University, Laboratory of Chemistry, West Lafayette, IN 47907– 2084. Instrument: Nd:YAG Laser/ Dye VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:53 Oct 26, 2006 Jkt 211001 Laser. Manufacturer: InnoLas, Germany. Intended Use: See notice at 71 FR 42633, July 27, 2006. Reasons: The foreign instrument provides: 1. Incorporation of both lasers into a single compact housing, ensuring that both lasers are properly aligned and minimizing realignment if they are moved. The smaller footprint saves limited laboratory space. 2. Exceptional mechanical and thermal stability associated with the laser body being fabricated out of a single cast–aluminum body resulting in superior reliability and an exceptionally stable day–to-day beam profile with minimal beam walk for maximal beam overlap 3. The Nd:YAG laser radiates a 600mJ/pulse at 1064 nm, 300mJ/ pulse at 532 nm and 140 mJ/pulse at 355 nm. 4. Repetition rate of 20 Hz. All nine of the other Nd:YAG lasers in the lab operate at 20 Hz making this rate an absolute requirement for planned multi–laser experiments. Advice received from: The National Institutes of Health. Docket Number: 06–046. Applicant: University of Colorado, JILA Department, Boulder, CO 80309. Instrument: Nd:YAG Laser, Model SL– 300–20 D . Manufacturer: InnoLas, Germany. Intended Use: See notice at 71 FR 42633, July 27, 2006 (comparable case with 06–065). Reasons: The foreign instrument provides exceptional stability and reliability to perform experiments run every day over months and years. Down time must be minimal. The laser must be operated in an environment subject to vibration from turbomolecular vacuum pumps. The housing of an InnoLas laser is machined out of a single, monolithic metal block and offers superior stability in a vibrationally harsh environment. The laser must also operate at a repetition rate of 20 Hz to be synchronized with the rest of the experiment and should be mounted as close as possible to the ion source for laser safety, making minimal dimensions of the laser head desirable. The capabilities of each of the foreign instruments described above are pertinent to each applicant’s intended purpose and we know of no other instrument or apparatus being manufactured in the United States which is of equivalent scientific value to any of the foreign instruments.
