  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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. NOVEL BASE BORONATED OLIGONUCLEOTIDES FOR BORON NEUTRON CAPTURE THERAPY

    SBC: BORON BIOLOGICALS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    BORON NEUTRON CAPTURE THERAPY (BNCT) HAS A CLEAR THEORETICALADVANTAGE OVER OTHER TECHNIQUES AS A METHOD OF DELIVERING CELL KILLING RADIATION TO TUMORS. NEW BORON COMPOUNDS ARE NEEDED THAT CAN SELECTIVELY LOCALIZE IN TUMORS AND, UPON CAPTURE OF THERMAL OR EPITHERMAL NEUTRONS, PRODUCE RADIATIONTO KILL TUMOR CELLS BUT SPARE NORMAL TISSUE AND BLOOD. BNCTEFFECTIVENESS WOULD BE GREATEST IF THE BORON TAR ...

  4. THE EFFECT OF POLYMER ADDITIVES AND RESIDUAL ELEMENTS ON THECRYOGENIC PERFORMANCE AND RADIATION RESISTANCE OF INSULATORSFOR HIGH-FIELD MAGNETS

    SBC: COMPOSITE TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT WILL EVALUATE THE EFFECT OF ACCELERATORS, FLEXIBILIZERS, AND METALLIC AND NONMETALLIC RESIDUAL ELEMENTS ON THE CRYOGENIC FATIGUE LIFE OF INSULATING MATERIALS USED IN SUPERCONDUCTING MAGNETS. THESE ADDITIVES ALTER THE CHEMICAL STRUCTURE OF EPOXY-RESIN SYSTEMS AND THUSWILL AFFECT THE RESPONSE OF THE MATERIAL TO RADIATION AND LOW TEMPERATURES. AN INTEGRATED, INNOVATIVE PROPRIETARY APPROA ...

  5. DETECTION OF ACID RAIN POLLUTANTS USING INFRARED LASERS PRODUCED BY STIMULATED ELECTRON RAMAN SCATTERING

    SBC: Comstock Inc            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT WILL ESTABLISH THE POTENTIAL FOR RAPID RESPONSE, HIGH RESOLUTION DETECTION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF INFRARED (IR) ACTIVE POLLUTANT MOLECULES, SUCH AS S02, N0, AND N02. MINIATURE OPTICAL HEAT PIPES WILL BE CONSTRUCTED AND OPTIMIZED FOR THE GENERATION OF TUNABLE IR LASER LIGHT BY MEANS OF STIMULATED ELECTRON RAMAN SCATTERING (SERS). THE HEAT PIPES WILL USE ALKALI METAL VAPORS AT PRESSURE ...

  6. AN ADVANCED ROBOTIC MANIPULATOR FOR THE INTEGRAL FAST REACTOR FUEL CYCLE FACILITY

    SBC: Remotec Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DEMONSTRATION TESTING OF ADVANCED PROCESS EQUIPMENT IS EXPECTED TO CONFIRM THE FEASIBILITY OF THE INTEGRAL FAST REACTOR (IFR) FUEL CYCLE PROCESS AT THE HOT FUEL EXAMINATION FACILITY - SOUTH (HFEF-S) ON THE ARGONNE-WEST SITE IN IDAHO. TEST RESULTS WILL BE INCORPORATED INTO THE DESIGN OF A COMMERCIAL IFR FUEL CYCLE FACILITY. THIS PROJECT CONTRIBUTES TO DEVELOPMENT OF A CONCEPTUAL DESIGN FOR AN ADVAN ...

  7. AN IN-VESSEL AND EX-VESSEL SMALL VOLUME REMOTE MAINTENANCE SYSTEM FOR THE COMPACT IGNITION TOKAMAK

    SBC: Telerobotics International,            Topic: N/A

    REMOTE MAINTENANCE OF THE COMPACT IGNITION TOKAMAK (CIT) POSES FORMIDABLE CHALLENGES BECAUSE OF ITS INTERNAL DIMENSIONAL CONSTRAINTS, DIVERSITY OF MAINTENANCE OPERATIONS, AND GEOMETRICALLY INTRICATE ARRANGEMENT OF EXTERNAL SERVICE EQUIPMENT. THESE CHALLENGES MUST BE ADDRESSED TO SUPPORT FUTURE "HOT" OPERATION OF THE PRINCETON PLASMA PHYSICS LABORATORY (PPPL) CIT. PHASE I INTRODUCES A SINGLE SOLUTI ...
