Applications may be examined between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. at the U.S. Department of Commerce in Room 3720. Docket Number: 10–052. Applicant: Argonne National Laboratory, UChicago Argonne, LLC, 9700 South Cass Avenue, Lemont, IL 60439. Instrument: Pilatus 2M Pixel Detector System. Manufacturer: Dectris Ltd., Switzerland. Intended Use: The instrument will be used to obtain fine structural information for materials during chemical reactions, such as catalysis. The instrument has gatable data processing as well as high time resolution and high spatial resolution, which makes the instrument unique. Other unique features include direct detection of x-rays in single-photoncounting mode, a radiation-tolerant design, a high dynamic range, a short readout time, high frame rates, high counting rates, and shutterless operation. 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: July 23, 2010.

Instrument: UHV low-Temperature Atomic Force VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:05 Aug 18, 2010 Jkt 220001 Microscope System for Application in High Magnetic Fields. Manufacturer: Omicron Nanotechnology, Germany. Intended Use: The instrument will be used to study atomic scale electrical and magnetic properties of electrically conduction as well as insulation nanostructures prepared by in situ deposition onto clean surfaces. In-situ capacities allow the preparation of clean and well-defined nanostructures on pristine surfaces which would contaminate otherwise. Unique features of this instrument include the capability of applying large magnetic fields (≤3 Tesla), which is necessary to allow the clear separation of structural, electronic, and magnetic signals of nanostructures and the evaluation of the properties to be studied in these experiments. The instrument also has in-situ preparation capability and the ability to operate in low temperatures. Further, the instrument is capable of performing imaging in two main modes of operation, i.e., scanning tunneling microscopy and atomic force microscopy.

Manufacturer: JEOL, Ltd., Japan. Intended Use: See notice at 75 FR 42377, July 21, 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. Dated: August 12, 2010.
