  1. High Performance Electrolytes for Electrochemical Capacitors

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 17a

    79591 High performance, long-cycle-life energy storage devices are critical in advanced transportation technologies, e.g., electric vehicles (EV) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEV). Electrochemical capacitors (aka, supercapacitors or ultracapacitors) are being developed as power assists for HEVs. However, a major obstacle in this application limited performance and short lifetimes, determined by ...

  2. Design and Construction of a High Field Hybrid-Asymmetric Superconducting Magnet System for Neutron Scattering

    SBC: American Magnetics, Inc.            Topic: 23a

    79359S05 There is an urgent need at neutron user-facilities worldwide to eliminate problems caused by magnetic stray fields from high-field, split-pair superconducting magnets. There is also a growing demand within the neutron scattering community for high-field, split-pair magnets that can be used for polarized beam experiments without sacrificing field strength or field uniformity. None of the ...

  3. Thermal Management via Hybrid Wafers and Devices

    SBC: ASTRALUX, INC.            Topic: 29a

    79748S Silicon (Si) has been the workhorse of the electronics industry since the invention of the transistor, and engineers have found new ways to push the limits of processing speed and power handling ability of Si chips. Decreasing the gate lengths, increasing the number of processors per unit area, and increasing the clock speed has led to increasing the microprocessor computing power from 0.3 ...

  4. Thermionic Conversion of Automotive Waste Heat

    SBC: ASTRALUX, INC.            Topic: N/A

    79590B Automobile engines generate significant waste heat, which could be recovered and converted to electricity to meet the growing demand for electric power. Thermionic emission allows waste heat to be converted, but traditional thermionic materials provide very low conversion efficiencies at the moderate temperatures (400-600¿C) found in an automobile exhaust system. Thus, there is a need t ...

  5. A System of Observation, Analysis and Verification for the Stable Isotopes of Carbon Dioxide

    SBC: Atmospheric Observing Systems, Inc.            Topic: 08b

    78555S DOE requires rapid, cost-effective methods for measuring the isotopic composition of atmospheric carbon dioxide. For discrete sampling, the [13CO2]/[12CO2] ratio must be measured to a precision of 0.2¿. For continuous monitoring (e.g. a one hour period), a resolution of 10 times less (~3¿) is acceptable. The instrumentation must be robust enough to operate properly for a full range of ...

  6. Expendable Probes for Carbon Dioxide

    SBC: Atmospheric Observing Systems, Inc.            Topic: 08

    78574S A wide range of practical instruments is needed for monitoring carbon dioxide concentrations of the land, air, and sea. Moderate accuracy and precision of order 1 ppm (dry mole fraction) will suffice. Expense, weight, size, and electrical power must be kept low to make the instrumentation applicable to a large number (~10,000) of one-way deployments per year. Accessible platforms include ...

  7. Vertically Integrated Measuring and Monitoring Instrumentation for Terrestrial Sinks and Sources of Carbon Dioxide

    SBC: Atmospheric Observing Systems, Inc.            Topic: 08

    78556S A vertically integrated system is needed to quantify the sources and sinks of carbon dioxide for terrestrial ecosystems. The system requires a broad coherence across spatial scales ranging from sub-meter plots of vegetation and soils up to the full ecosystem. The coherence is enforced by an additional requirement that the results of each spatial scale support and verify the results of neig ...

  8. Downhole Heater Cables for Oil Shale Recovery


    78469S Downhole heaters, capable of long-term 900¿C operation, are needed to assist in oil shale recovery. Currently available mineral-insulated (MI) cables are not capable of surviving the temperature or downhole environmental conditions encountered in this application. Additionally, the insulation must exhibit good electrical properties and resistance to the humidity encountered in downhole e ...

  9. New Highly Radiation-Resistant Insulation Process for High Field Accelerator Magnets


    78092S High performance, wind-before-react magnet insulation systems, which enable the use of thinner insulation for close packing of the conductor and can withstand high radiation loads, are needed for future accelerator magnets such as the Large Hadron Collider project. However, the most radiation-resistant ceramic insulation systems currently available for use as wind-and-react insulation have ...

  10. Innovative Nanoparticle Insulation Systems for Fusion Magnets


    78759S Fusion magnets require insulation materials that possess high shear strength, excellent electrical insulation characteristics, and radiation resistance. Improvements in insulation technology can contribute to improved magnet performance, and will enable scientists and engineers to overcome current magnet design limitations. To improve the shear strength of composite insulation materials, ...
