  1. Development of HOM Couplers for the LHC Superconducting Crab Cavities

    SBC: Niowave, Inc.            Topic: 29c

    As part of the planned luminosity upgrade for the Large Hadron Collider at CERN the HiLumi project), compact crab cavities are under development. These cavities will rotate the hadron bunches at the interaction point to produce more effective collisions. To get the high gradients needed to meet the needs of the LHC main ring, superconducting RF has been chosen for these cavities. In collaboration ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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. Advanced Ceramic Materials and Packaging Technologies for Realizing Sensors Operable up to 1800 Celsius in Advanced Energy Generation Systems

    SBC: SPORIAN MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: 14c

    There is a need for condition monitoring sensors capable of functioning in the harshest environments associated with advanced power systems that will: directly contribute to improving system control, protect capital equipment investment, and promote safety through prevention of catastrophic equipment failure. These harsh environments include extreme temperatures (800-1800C), high press ...

    SBC: SFP WORKS, LLC            Topic: 02b

    The Department of Energy (DOE) has pursued multiple strategies for making vehicles lighter and more fuel efficient. Past efforts have focused on either developing technologies to replace heavy steel components or using high-strength steels to reduce the amount of steel needed for the same load-bearing capacity. However, these techniques have proved problematic because the former requires expensive ...

  7. Tailoring Cementitious Materials Towards Value-Added Use of Large CO2 Volumes

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: 13c

    The massive quantities of concrete used worldwide (estimated at 30 billion tons/yr), and the susceptibility of concrete to carbonation provide opportunities for chemical binding of significant quantities of carbon dioxide. The resulting carbonates can enhance the material properties of concrete by supplementing the binding effects of cement hydrates. Carbonation of concrete without tailoring its c ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. TiPAD- Titanium Puck and Densification Technologies for Affordable Mass Production of Automotive and Aerospace Components

    SBC: Temper Inc            Topic: 07b

    The titanium puck and densification (PAD) program addresses the problem of mass producing lightweight, high temperature engine components for automotive applications. The solution is to create a contaminant-free, self-skinned puck from inexpensive powdered titanium and rapidly densify it into a solid near-net shape component that is over 99.9% porosity free using mass production techniques. The Ph ...

  10. 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 ...
