  1. Thermal-Mechanical Stress in Semiconductor Devices

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: 14a

    As semiconductors heat up, thermal expansion induces mechanical stresses and these stresses can either cause failure, or a change in the performance due to changes in electron transport. Understanding these e ects is challenging due to the coupled physics nature of the problem. General statement of how this problem is being addressed This problem is being addressed by solving for each of the separ ...

  2. Visualizing staggered fields and analyzing electromagnetic data with PerceptEM

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: 41e

    In order for Moores law (exponential growth of compute capability) to continue to hold, the bandwidths of interconnects will need to be increased by 10x or moreto well beyond 100Gbs. This represents a formidable challenge to Integrated Circuit (IC) manufacturers because higher frequency will exacerbate already strained power dissipation of traditional copper interconnects. As a result, server and ...

  3. Development of On-Site Conical Spiral Welders for Large Wind Turbine Towers

    SBC: Keystone Tower Systems, Inc.            Topic: 07a

    Larger, taller wind turbines could significantly reduce the cost of wind energy and enable much broader deployment, but traditional tower designs cannot cost-effectively scale up due to the size constraints associated with road and rail transportation. Wind turbine towers face a critical bottleneck in the form of the 14-foot diameter limit imposed by over-road transport. With current designs, to ...

  5. Membrane-Sorbent Hybrid System for Post Combustion Carbon Capture

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 12e

    The electricity produced from fossil fuels is essential to the worlds prosperity and security. On the other hand, increasing atmospheric CO2 concentration caused by the fossil fuel combustion are causing concerns regarding global warming. Although there are several methods for separating CO2 from the flue gases at existing coal-fired power plants, all of them have significant drawbacks, includin ...

  6. Advanced Laser Driver for Inertial Fusion Energy

    SBC: Aqwest LLC            Topic: 17a

    Inertial confinement fusion (ICF) offers to tap almost unlimited sources of inexpensive energy. While ICF has been demonstrated at the Department of Energy (DOE) Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), its commercialization to inertial fusion energy (IFE) is impeded by the lack of an efficient and economical laser driver. Drivers for todays ICF facilities generate only a few pulses per day ...

  7. Rapid Design and Testing of Novel Gas-Liquid Contacting Devices for Post-Combustion CO2 Capture via 3-D Printing

    SBC: ION Engineering LLC            Topic: 12f

    To dramatically reduce CO2 emissions from coal-fired power plants, and mitigate their impact on global climate change, DOE has called for technologies that can capture at least 90% of CO2 emissions from an existing coal-fired power plant with no more than a 35% increase in the cost of electricity. One process design approach with the potential to achieve these goals is through the use of advanced ...

  8. Daylighting Digital Dimmer Lighting Control

    SBC: Mojo Labs Inc            Topic: 03a

    Innovative, energy-savings lighting controls methods such as occupancy sensing, personal control, and daylighting have realized a market that is only a fraction of the potential lighting market. With the increasing market penetration of solid-state lighting technology, there is an opportunity to re-invigorate the adoption of energy-savings lighting controls. Along with the recent growth of solid ...

  10. Novel Trap for Ticks and Fleas Incorporating a CO2 Generator

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: DHP13007

    Military personnel must be protected from diseases transmitted by ticks and fleas, including Lyme disease. Effective surveillance of tick and flea vectors is vital to determine the population present, whether they are carrying disease, and whether control campaigns are working. Unfortunately, current surveillance tools are ineffective. In Phase I TDA designed, prototyped, and tested a novel ti ...
