  2. A Laser Power-Build-Up System for H Atom Ionization

    SBC: Boulder Precision Electro-optics            Topic: 04d

    Hydrogen negative ions must be ionized with high efficiency for injection into proton accelerators, such as those used at DOE facilities. To achieve this ionization, neutral atoms are first prepared by laser excitation in a relatively low-strength magnetic field, which requires megawatt peak powers. However, the carbon foil strippers that are currently-used for this purpose become radioactive an ...

  3. A New Three-Part Architecture for Efficient and Stable Bulk Heterojunction OPV Devices

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 23b

    Rapid and encouraging progress in bulk heterojunction organic photovoltaics (BHJ OPV) has made this technology one of the most promising for inexpensively generating electricity from sunshine. However, power conversion efficiencies remain at about 60% of what is thought to be required for commercially viability. Moreover, current devices incorporate both vacuum-deposited materials, which mitigat ...

  4. A Novel Li Conducting Solid State Electrolyte by Sol Gel Technique

    SBC: Excellatron Solid State, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Further development of rechargeable lithium batteries requires dramatic improvement of the ionically conducting electrolyte used in the batteries. Most of the limitations of current lithium-ion batteries are due to restrictions imposed by the general use of organic electrolytes, either liquid or polymer, that limit energy density, long term cycle life, and the rate of charge/discharge capability ...

  5. A RADIATION-HARDENED, LOW-COST, HIGH-FIDELITY, FIRST-LEVEL PROCESSOR FOR LARGE ARRAYS FO DETECTORS

    SBC: Q-DOT, INC.            Topic: N/A

    IN PHASE I OF THIS PROJECT A LOW COST, RADIATION-HARDENED, HIGH PERFORMANCE FIRST-LEVEL PROCESSOR IS BEING DEVELOPED FOR LARGE (E.G., 10(6)) ARRAYS OF DETECTORS SUCH AS THOSE USED IN BOTH COLLIDING-BEAM AND FIXED-TARGET HIGH ENERGY PHYSICS EXPERIMENTS. THE USE OF A UNIQUE DEVICE FABRICATIONPROCESS IS EXPECTED TO YIELD HARDNESS LEVELS IN EXCESS OF 10(7) RADS. IT APPEARS FEASIBLE TO ACQUIRE DATA FRO ...

  6. A Streaming Data Reduction Appliance for High Energy Physics based on FPGA Technology

    SBC: Noqsi Aerospace ltd            Topic: 33c

    Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) technology is finding increasing use in the kinds of large-scale data acquisition tasks characteristic of high-energy physics, and it can also be used for specialized data processing. Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) containing large numbers of processor cores are finding increasing use in processing large arrays of data. We propose to combine these technologie ...

  7. A ZEOLITE CATALYST FOR THE DECOMPOSITION OF NITROGEN OXIDES IN A NET-OXIDIZING FLUE GAS

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    AMONG THE MOST IMPORTANT OF THE POLLUTANTS ARISING FROM THE COMBUSTION OF COAL ARE THE NITROGEN OXIDES (NO AND NO2, OR NOX). CURRENTLY, THE ONLY CATALYTIC PROCESSES CAPABLE OF CONTROLLING NOX IN THE AIR-RICH FLUE GASES OF A COAL-FIRED POWERPLANT REQUIRE THE ADDITION OF A REDUCING GAS, SUCH AS AMMONIA OR UREA, TO THE FLUE GAS. THIS NOT ONLY LEADS TO INCREASED COSTS, BUT EMISSIONS OF THE REDUCING GA ...

  8. Accurate Spin Tracking on Modern Computer Architectures for Electron-Ion Colliders

    SBC: RadiaSoft LLC            Topic: 25e

    Electron-ion colliders (EICs) are the best microscopes for studying the structure of nuclear matter, particularly the nature and origin of spin in nuclei. To be effective, such machines require electron and ion beams with polarizations as high as 80%. Comprehensive end-to-end simulations to study the spin dynamics and optimize the beam polarization require exorbitant computational effort. We will ...

  9. Advanced Composite Materials for Tidal Turbine Blades

    SBC: COMPOSITE TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT, INC.            Topic: 19a

    The DOE is interested in the development of efficient tidal turbine systems to help meet the future energy needs of the United States. State-of-the-art tidal turbine systems feature composite tidal turbine blades. Unfortunately, composite materials possess questionable durability characteristics relevant to the marine environment (e.g., poor cavitation-erosion and impact-damage-resistance), whic ...

  10. ADVANCED MANUFACTURING OF MICRO POCKET FISSION DETECTOR (MPFD)

    SBC: Radiation Detection Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 29a

    A need exists for advanced instrumentation neutron-flux mapping with in the reactor-core for the Transient REActor Test (TREAT) facility and Advanced Test Reactor (ATR) experiments supporting advanced nuclear material testing. In addition, many U.S. research reactors and industrial power nuclear-reactors would benefit from in-core neutron-flux monitoring. Here it is proposed to research advanced M ...
