The prospective exclusive license may be granted unless, within fifteen days from the date of this published Notice, NIST receives written evidence and argument which establish that the grant of the license would not be consistent with the requirements of 35 U.S.C. 209 and 37 CFR 404.7. U.S. Provisional Patent Application No. 61,623/957 is co-owned by the U.S. government, as represented by the Secretary of Commerce, George Mason University, and the University of Maryland. This invention is a chemical sensor architecture that combines the sensitive transduction capability of semiconducting nanostructures together with the enhanced catalytic efficiency of metal and metal-oxide nanoclusters. Nanowire-nanocluster hybrid chemical sensors are realized by functionalizing gallium nitride (GaN) nanowires (NWs) with titanium dioxide (TiO2) nanolusters for selectively sensing benzene and other related aromatic compounds. The Hybrid sensor devices are made by fabricating two-terminal devices using individual GaN NWs followed by the deposition of TiO2 nanoclusters using RF magnetron sputtering. The sensor fabrication process employed standard microfabrication techniques. Dated: October 12, 2012. Willie E. May, Associate Director for Laboratory Programs.

The Committee will also review suggested Council priorities for 2013, and may develop recommendations for those priorities. The Committee will also consider developing possible mitigation measures for the low catch levels expected in Fishing Year 2013, such as recommending the Council pursue measures to increase landings of skates, dogfish, and monkfish. Committee recommendations will be considered by the Council at the November Council meeting. Other business may be discussed. Although non-emergency issues not contained in this agenda may come before this group for discussion, those issues may not be the subject of formal action during this meeting.
