Award List:

High-temperature superconducting SMES for airborne applications

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Research Institution: Ohio State University
Principal Investigator: Daniel V. der Laan, President – (720) 933-5674
Award Amount: $99,999.00
RI Contact: Michael Sumption
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: The Air Force has needs for compact, light weight and efficient energy storage devices that do not experience significant performance degradation after many operating cycles. We propose to develop a superconducting magnetic energy storage device (SMES) that is constructed from… More

REBCO Coated Conductor Cables for Fusion Magnets

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / STTR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Research Institution: MIT
Principal Investigator: Daniel van der Laan, Dr. – 720-933-5674
Award Amount: $149,940.00
RI Contact:
Abstract:
The feasibility for fusion as a practical energy source needs to be enhanced significantly by removing some of the restrictions that low-temperature superconductors put on the fusion magnet systems. One method to simplify the magnet system is by using high-temperature superconductors (HTS) that… More

Superconducting Cable Connections

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: van der, President and Founder – (720) 933-5674
Award Amount: $149,994.00
Abstract:
The Navy has expressed interest in shipboard high-temperature superconducting (HTS) cable systems for power transmission and degaussing purposes. The practical application of such cable systems requires flexible superconducting cables and cable connectors that allow for a quick and reliable cable… More

Demountable Joints for HTS Fusion Cables

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Daniel Van der Laan, Dr.
Award Amount: $149,998.00
Abstract:
The feasibility of fusion as a practical energy source needs to be improved significantly by removing some of the restrictions that low-temperature superconductors put on the fusion magnet systems. One method to simplify the magnet system is by using high-temperature superconductors (HTS) that … More

REBCO Coated Conductor Cables for Accelerator Magnets

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Daniel Van der Laan, Dr.
Award Amount: $149,995.00
Abstract:
Accelerator magnets that are currently being used in high-energy physics experiments are limited to a maximum magnetic field of about 20 T because superconductivity in the low-temperature superconductors (LTS) from which the magnets are constructed breaks down at higher fields. The only way to build… More

REBCO Coated Conductor Cables for Fusion Magnets

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / STTR / Phase II
Agency: DOE
Research Institution: MIT
Principal Investigator: Daniel Van der Laan, Dr.
Award Amount: $999,985.00
RI Contact:
Abstract:
The feasibility for fusion as a practical energy source needs to be enhanced significantly by removing some of the restrictions that low-temperature superconductors put on the fusion magnet systems. This can be done by using high-temperature superconductors, allowing for much larger temperature… More
