Applications may be examined between 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. at the U.S. Department of Commerce in Room 3720. Docket Number: 16–023. Applicant: Princeton University, 701 Carnegie Center, Princeton, NJ 08540. Instrument: Electron Microscope. Manufacturer: FEI Company, Czech Republic. Intended Use: The instrument will be used for room temperature imaging, quantitative chemical analysis/mapping, and electron diffraction. Justification for Duty-Free Entry: There are no instruments of the same general category manufactured in the United States. Application accepted by Commissioner of Customs: November 30, 2016. Docket Number: 16–027. Applicant: Yale University, 333 Cedar St., New Haven, CT 06510. Instrument: OneFive Laser System Katana-08 HP. Manufacturer: Onefive, Switzerland. Intended Use: The instrument will be used as a depletion source to saturate STED depletion profile in samples containing both endogenously expressed fluorescent proteins as well as antibody labeled organic dyes. The experiments require a high power pulsed depletion source at a wavelength of 775 nm to saturate the depletion profile in STED microscopy to achieve resolution below the diffraction limit. The picosecond pulse profile is needed to synchronize the depletion pulse with the excitation pulse. Minimal after pulse tail and sub 100 ps pulse width are also required. Justification for Duty-Free Entry: There are no instruments of the same general category manufactured in the United States. Application accepted by Commissioner of Customs: December 16, 2016. Docket Number: 17–001. Applicant: Barnard College, 3009 Broadway, New York, NY 10027. Instrument: Positioner for a prototype Schwarzchild Couder Telescope (pSCT). Manufacturer: DESYDeutchesElektronen-Synchrotron, Germany. Intended Use: The instrument will be used to point the pSCT at astrophysical gamma-ray sources to detect and measure optical Cherenkov light flashes produced in the Earth’s atmosphere by very high energy gamma ray photons. The instrument is a unique piece constructed as part of a design project called the Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA), which is being developed by the international astronomical community. DESY is the only company who builds an instrument of this kind. Justification for Duty-Free Entry: There VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:51 Apr 05, 2017 Jkt 241001 are no instruments of the same general category manufactured in the United States. Application accepted by Commissioner of Customs: January 10, 2017. Dated: March 31, 2017. Gregory W. Campbell, Director of Subsidies Enforcement, Enforcement and Compliance.

Intended Use: See notice at 81 FR 89434, December 12, 2016. Comments: None received. Decision: Approved. We know of no instruments of equivalent scientific value to the foreign instruments described below, for such purposes as this is intended to be used, that was being manufactured in the United States at the time of order. Reasons: The instrument will be used to study time-dependent finite chemical rate and mixing effects in turbulent combustion and the investigation of coherent structures in turbulent boundary layers. The instrument is approximately 10 times more powerful than any other high-repetition diodepumped solid state available from a U.S. manufacturer. Techniques to be performed include Planar Laser Induced Fluorescence imaging, exploiting the high-repetition rate and tenability features of the instrument. Dated: March 31, 2017. Gregory W.
