  1. Miniature fast response CCN counter

    SBC: Droplet Measurement Technologies Inc.            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 ...

  2. SELECT: Secure and Lightweight Computing Environment for HPC systems

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 03a

    The increased accessibility via remote login, along with steadily growing numbers of HPC users and projects, poses a challenging question for HPC system management: How to secure HPC systems and protect the data inside these systems? There are several challenging issues that prevent the direct deployment of existing personal computer or cloud security tools in HPC systems: 1) The overhead introduc ...

    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 ...

  4. Yb:Lasers for high repetition rate VUV ultrafast chemistry with resonance enhanced fifth harmonic at 100nm

    SBC: Kapteyn-Murnane Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: 10a

    Statement of the problem or situation that is being addressed: In this project, we propose to develop a high repetition rate, 100 nm ultrafast source for spectroscopy, and imaging using Ytterbium laser technology for hollow core fiber resonant enhanced 5th harmonic generation. Currently, there are no commercial or scientific sources with the combination of high (100kHz 1MHz) repetition rate, and ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Advanced Computational Tools for Modeling Coherent and Microbunched Electron Cooling Systems

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: 24d

    Statement of the problem or situation that is being addressed: The electron cooling system for the proposed luminosity upgrade of the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC), and for future electron-ion collider concepts, represents a significant design challenge due to the high energy of the ion beam. An innovative concept known as coherent electron cooling (CeC) combines the best f ...

  9. Multi-scale modeling for beam-beam depolarization

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: 24e

    Statement of the problem or situation that is being addressed To elucidate the mysterious origins of nuclear spin, the Nuclear Science Advisory Committee (NSAC) has identified the science of electron-ion colliders, and specifically a proposed polarized electron-ion collider, as absolutely central to U.S. science. Such machines, estimated to cost as much as $500M$1B, will require polarized par ...

  10. Simulation Tools for Heavy Ion Beam Charge Strippers

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: 24f

    A major new facility for the Department of Energy is the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams. Solid foil strippers for ionizing the beams can be damaged by the beam intensity, so researchers are considering flowing gas strippers. However, the interaction of the beam with the gas is not well understood. Statement of how this problem is being addressed We propose to add computer models to an existing ...
