  1. Hardening Advanced Methods for Predicting 3D Unsteady Flows Around Wind Turbines for Industrial Use

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: 02c

    Wind power plays an increasingly important role in satisfying the power needs of the U.S., and serves to reduce dependence on fossil fuels. With increased penetration, significant maintenance costs and reductions in power generation have underscored the need to predict the unsteady loading related to turbine configuration, layout and off-design wind conditions as well as importance of accounting ...

  2. Miniature fast response CCN counter

    SBC: Droplet Measurement Technologies, LLC            Topic: 19a

    There is an increasing need to understand the impacts particles emitted by both natural and human activities have on cloud properties, precipitation and climate. DOE has identified a need to improve the measurement capability of observational platforms, particularly in the Arctic region. One barrier to progress in understanding the interactions of particles and clouds and the importance of cloud c ...

  3. Online Thread Detection in Social Networks Using Accelerators

    SBC: Accelereyes LLC            Topic: 03a

    Problem Statement: Real-time analysis and monitoring of networks is crucial for threat detection. Networks are ubiquitous in todays world and can appear in many formats and to name a few we have: communication networks, social networks, and power networks. In many instances it is important to know who the key players are in the network these can be people, computers, or relay stations. One of the ...

    SBC: FEMTOSCALE INC            Topic: 07b

    Problem Statement: Since the initial development stages of Atomic Force Microscope, AFMs with optical readout have become the center of attraction for researchers in the field. Despite offering high sensitivity and satisfactory performance, the optical setup is bulky and houses sophisticated and costly optical elements and assemblies that are highly sensitive and inconvenient to work with. This li ...

  5. Plasmonic-enhanced High Light Extraction Phosphor Sheets for Solid State Lighting

    SBC: PHOSPHORTECH            Topic: 09c

    Statement of the problem or situation that is being addressed - typically, one to three sentences. Solid state lighting (SSL) is a fast growing technology, which is starting to replace conventional lighting products such as fluorescent and incandescent bulbs. While the current efficiency of some commercial SSL products has surpassed those of most traditional lighting, it is still far below what th ...

  7. Micromachining hard materials for waveguides that can be coated and used at high pressures for HHG (Title on abstract and summary is "Micromachined Hardened Waveguides for High Harmonic Generation (HHG)")

    SBC: Kapteyn-Murnane Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: 11a

    Statement of the problem or situation that is being addressed: In this project, we propose to develop waveguides specific to high harmonic generation, that are more efficient than standard HHG waveguides, can handle pressures in excess of > 30 bar, minimize losses for wavelengths > 1 m, and can be manufactured with ultrafast micromachining. Current waveguides using hollow core fused silica are a g ...

  8. Energy Dense Batteries Based on Highly Conductive Solid Electrolyte and Cathode Materials

    SBC: Soild Power, Inc.            Topic: 17b

    Statement of the Problem or Situation that is being addressed Lithium-ion batteries are considered candidates for large-scale energy storage mainly because of their high energy density and flexibility. However, current lithium-ion battery technology does not meet the critical requirements in terms of safety, ultra-long cycle life and shelf life, low cost, and improved energy density. Element Sulfu ...

  9. A Highly Miniaturized (CPI-Based) Cloud and Aerosol Instrument Package for Small UAVs

    SBC: Stratton Park Engineering Co., Inc.            Topic: 19a

    Statement of the Problem: The 2013 report from the International Panel on Climate Change states that the spatial extent of Arctic sea ice has decreased in every season, and in every successive decade since 1979. Arctic summer sea ice retreat is unprecedented (9.4 to 13.6% per decade). Numerical simulations predict a nearly ice-free summertime Arctic after the middle of the 21st century. It is ...
