  1. Nanomaterial-based Tamper-proof Anti-counterfeit Packaging Labels

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DLA163003

    The risk of counterfeit parts insertion into the Department of Defense (DoD) supply chain can happen at multiple stages during the product/part/component/subcomponent manufacturing or distribution. Original component manufacturers typically reside in the lowest risk category whereas unverified sources/unidentified suppliers account for the maximum number of counterfeit issues. In addition, older l ...

  2. Sub-diffraction illumination source for Saturated Transient Absorption Microscopy

    SBC: Kapteyn-Murnane Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: 12a

    Many emerging technologies in solar energy, electronics, and biophysics require a deep understanding of the behavior of materials on the nanoscale. Recent advances in high resolution chemical imaging show great promise for improving the resolution of widely applicable chemical imaging techniques. We propose to develop a commercial tunable, ultrashort pulse laser source with sub-diffraction illumin ...

  3. Nuclear Physics Gamma-ray Imaging System for Real-Time Rare Isotope Harvesting, Monitoring and Radiochemical Separation – NP Imager

    SBC: PHDS COMPANY            Topic: 26b

    The Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Nuclear Physics Research supports user facilities studying the physics of rare radioisotopes. These user facilities produce sufficient quantities of these rare radioisotopes to be studied and possibly used for new applications. The DOE Office of Nuclear Physics Isotope Program supports the US supply of many important uncommon isotopes that require unique DO ...

  6. Simulation of nanoscale high-efficiency thermionic converters

    SBC: RadiaSoft LLC            Topic: 02b

    The design and fabrication of vacuum nano-electronic devices is essential to the present and future US economy and energy sources. Highly-resolved 3D electrostatic particle-in-cell (PIC) simulations are required to correctly model and optimize their fabrication and operation; however, the associated run-time and complexity of such HPC codes is prohibitive. The Scientific Discovery through Advanced ...

  7. Advanced Modeling Tools for Optimizing Tapering Schemes in X-Ray Free-Electron Lasers

    SBC: RadiaSoft LLC            Topic: 05b

    Future generations of X-ray free-electron lasers will use novel seeding and tapering schemes to extract power from the electron beams with orders of magnitude greater efficiency. The current state-of-the-art free-electron laser codes are not adequately equipped for designing these machines. By developing a new code with these schemes in mind, a new generation of machines can be studied with high ...

  8. Accurate Spin Tracking on Modern Computer Architectures for Electron-Ion Colliders

    SBC: RadiaSoft LLC            Topic: 25e

    Electron-ion colliders (EICs) are the best microscopes for studying the structure of nuclear matter, particularly the nature and origin of spin in nuclei. To be effective, such machines require electron and ion beams with polarizations as high as 80%. Comprehensive end-to-end simulations to study the spin dynamics and optimize the beam polarization require exorbitant computational effort. We will ...

  9. High-Resolution Cloud Probe for the TigerShark UAV and Tethered Balloon Systems

    SBC: Stratton Park Engineering Co., Inc.            Topic: 20a

    The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Fifth Assessment Report states that clouds and aerosols continue to contribute the largest uncertainty to estimates and interpretations of the Earth’s changing energy budget. Arctic sea ice has decreased in every season, and in every successive decade since 1979. Numerical simulations predict a nearly ice-free summertime Arctic after the middl ...

  10. StratuSim: A Configurable Interface for Cloud-Enabled HPC Workflows

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: 02a

    The Department of Energy has supported an extensive program in modeling and simulation, which has enriched scientific discovery and advanced scientific use of High Performance Computing. Due to the fact that many potential users do not have access to high performance resources and that codes are not easy to use, these advances have been underutilized in engineering and manufacturing. General state ...
