The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Novel, Allergen Specific, Molecularly Imprinted Polymers for Use in Laboratory and Inline Food Process Monitoring Applications

    SBC: SPORIAN MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: 85

    The emerging challenges associated with human exposure to food allergens have fueled an urgent need for development of novel detection and sensing systems. Food industries, regulatory agencies, and allergy suffers require the ability to quickly test and continuously monitor in-situ for specific allergens and/or food contaminants in food and food processes.Film that adhere specifically to nut aller ...

  2. A Low-Cost Pathogen Detection System for Food Safety

    SBC: Access Sensor Technologies LLC            Topic: 85

    Food safety is a global problem, which costs the world billions of dollars and over a million lives annually. Access Sensor Technologies proposes to develop a rapid, low-cost, easy to use system for the measurement of food borne pathogens. The proposed kit builds off of patent-pending technology that will deliver exceptional ease-of-use as well as performance metrics (time, cost, labor) exceeding ...

  3. A Regenerable Sorbent for Deep Desulfurization of Alpha Pinene

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 81

    Crude Sulfated Turpentine (CST) is a by-product of the Kraft wood pulping process, and its derivatives (e.g., terpenes such as alpha pinene) are used as fragrances in commercial products ranging from cosmetics to detergents. They can also be, and are, catalytically transformed into valuable chemicals by hydrogenation, oxidation and isomerization reactions. However, turpentine and its derivatives c ...

  4. 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 ...

    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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 a ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...
