The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY19 is not expected to be complete until April, 2020.

  1. DEVELOPMENT OF AN IMPROVED NOZZLE FOR FLUE GAS HUMIDIFICATION

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    FLUE GAS HUMIDIFICATION DOWNSTREAM OF THE AIR PREHEATER PLAYS AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN ALL CALCIUM-BASED DRY SORBENT PROCESSES. FOR IN-DUCT SORBENT INJECTION PROCESSES, HUMIDIFICATION IS REQUIRED TO ACHIEVE THE DESIRED REACTION RATES BETWEEN THE SORBENT PARTICLES AND THE FLUE GAS SO2; FOR FURNACE SORBENT INJECTION, SUPPLEMENTAL SO2 CAPTURE IS POSSIBLE. HUMIDIFICATION ALSO IS THE MOST ECONOMICAL MEANS ...

  4. A POSITION SENSITIVE NEUTRON DETECTOR USING BORON PHOSPHIDE SEMICONDUCTOR SENSORS

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    TRADITIONAL POSITION-SENSITIVE NEUTRON DETECTORS USE EITHER GAS FILLED TUBES OR SCINTILLATOR-PHOTOMULTIPLIER TUBE COMBINATIONS. ALTHOUGH BOTH OF THESE TECHNOLOGIES HAVE RESULTED IN SUCCESSFUL POSITION-SENSITIVE NEUTRON DETECTORS,THEY HAVE A VARIETY OF INTRINSIC DEFICIENCIES. THIS PROJECTINVOLVES THE CONSTRUCTION OF NEW POSITION-SENSITIVE NEUTRON DETECTORS FROM SOLID STATE DETECTOR ELEMENTS MADE FR ...

  5. THALLIUM BROMOIODIDE DETECTORS FOR SCINTILLATION SPECTROSCOPY

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SCINTILLATION DETECTORS REMAIN THE LEADING TYPE OF DETECTOR IN MANY AREAS OF NUCLEAR PHYSICS. ALTHOUGH IMPROVEMENTS IN SCINTILLATOR CRYSTAL TECHNOLOGY HAVE EXTENDED THE UTILITY OFSCINTILLATOR SYSTEMS, SERIOUS DEFICIENCIES IN THE OPTICAL DETECTORS USED WITH SCINTILLATION CRYSTALS LIMIT THE TECHNOLOGY'S FULL POTENTIAL. CONVENTIONAL SCINTILLATION SYSTEMS USE PHOTOMULTIPLIER TUBES OR SILICON DIODES AS ...

  6. LARGE AREA POSITION SENSITIVE DETECTOR FOR SYNCHROTRON X-RAY DIFFRACTION

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE AVAILABILITY OF HIGH INTENSITY, SYNCHROTRON SOURCES TO PRODUCE HIGH FLUX, MONOCHROMATIC X-RAY BEAMS HAS RESULTEDIN IMPORTANT ADVANCES IN THE STUDY AND DETERMINATION OF THE STRUCTURE OF LARGE, FRAGILE BIOLOGICAL MACROMOLECULES. ALTHOUGH THESE SOURCES REPRESENT A MAJOR ADVANCE IN TECHNOLOGY, AT PRESENT THERE ARE NO LARGE AREA DETECTORS WITH BOTH THE HIGH FLUX CAPABILITY AND GOOD SPATIAL RESOLUTI ...

  7. A NEW SEMICONDUCTOR PHOTOSENSOR FOR SCINTILLATION SPECTROSCOPY

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1990 Department of Energy
  8. WET COUNTERCURRENT OPEN GRADIENT MAGNETIC SEPARATION OF PYRITE FROM COAL

    SBC: Allied Energy Systems Inc            Topic: N/A

    THIS RESEARCH PROGRAM WILL DEMONSTRATE THE TECHNICAL AND ECONOMIC FEASIBILITY OF THE PROPOSED MAGNETIC SEPARATOR ON PULVERIZED COAL. A THEORETICAL COMPARISON OF THE PROPOSED SEPARATOR WITH WORK PUBLISHED ON OPEN GRADIENT MAGNETIC SEPARATION BY THE OAK RIDGE NATIONAL LABORATORY INDICATES THAT THE SEPARATOR WILL HAVE HIGH LEVELS OF ASH CLEANING. THIS IS BECAUSE OF ITS COUNTERCURRENT PRINCIPLE OF OPE ...

  9. INCREASED SPEED IN DNA SEQUENCING BY UTILIZING LARIS TO LOCALIZE MULTIPLE STABLE ISOTOPE LABELED FRAGMENTS

    SBC: ATOM SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    MAPPING AND SEQUENSING THE DNA IN THE HUMAN GENOME IS OF CRUCIAL IMPORTANCE TO FUTURE MEDICAL ADVANCES AND ECONOMIC COMPETITIVENESS. UTILIZATION OF DNA PROBES LABELED WITH DOZENS OF STABLE ISOTOPES INSTEAD OF A SINGLE RADIOISOTOPE COULD INCREASE THE RATE OF SEQUENCE DETERMINATION 100-FOLD OR MORE COMPARED TO CURRENT METHODS. THIS PROJECT INVOLVES A NEW APPROACH, LASER ATOMIZATION RESONANCE IONIZAT ...

  10. DNA SEQUENCING BY HYBRIDIZATION ON SURFACES: DEVELOPMENT OF ULTRA-SENSITIVE TWO-DIMENSIONAL DETECTORS

    SBC: ATOM SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE NEED TO MAP AND SEQUENCE DNA IN THE HUMAN GENOME IS OF CRUCIAL IMPORTANCE FOR A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF GENETICS AND DISEASE PROCESSES. CURRENT DNA SEQUENCING PROCEDURES ALMOST UNIVERSALLY REQUIRE GEL ELECTROPHORESIS OF DNA FRAGMENTS, AND SEVERAL LABORATORIES ARE DEVISING PROCEDURES TO AUTOMATE AS MANY STEPS OF THIS PROCESS AS POSSIBLE. SEQUENCING BY HYBRIDIZATION (SBH) PROPOSED BY DRMANAC ET ...
