  1. Development of a Sequence Capture Approach for Monitoring in situ Nitrogen Cycling Potential in Microbial Communities

    SBC: Glomics, Inc            Topic: 19b

    Microorganisms play key roles in environmental functioning and understanding their responses to environmental perturbation is critical in developing accurate climate change models, a need highlighted by the DOE. However, their phylogenetic and functional diversity, abundance in the environment, and lack of cultured status make them challenging to study. While there are several molecular methods av ...

  2. Dynamic NMR Logging Technologies for High-Resolution Measurement of Hydrogeologic Properties and Soil Response

    SBC: Vista Clara Inc.            Topic: 19b

    This proposal addresses the challenge of measuring the hydrogeologic response of soils in-situ and at high-resolution to determine flow and storage parameters governing groundwater availability, contaminant fate, and other dynamic subsurface processes. We will develop direct-push instrumentation and methods for efficiently acquiring high-resolution nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) data in the shal ...

  3. Resonant Cavity Light Emitting Diodes for Infrared Gas Spectroscopy

    SBC: Amethyst Research Incorporated            Topic: 19a

    The predictive skill of reactive transport models of hydrobiogeochemical processes currently being used to simulate the coupled interactions of complex subsurface systems (soils, rhizosphere, sediments, aquifers, the vadose zone and groundwaters) is limited by the accuracy of the model parameters that represent subsurface system structure and intrinsic properties. Robust field testing to validate ...

  4. Novel electrochemical membrane reactor for synthesis of NH3 from air and water at low temperature and low pressure

    SBC: Molecule Works Incorporated            Topic: DEFOA0001563

    This proposal aims to develop a new, compact reactor for production of ammonia from air and water with renewable electricity. The conversion is carried out in a solid-state alkaline electrochemical cell at temperatures below 200oC and pressures below 10bar. Water vapor and N2 gas are fed into cathode side of the cell to form ammonia and hydroxide ions. As ammonia is produced from the cathode, the ...

  5. High Sensitive Methane Sensor for Real-time Measurements of Methane Isotopes

    SBC: Amethyst Research Incorporated            Topic: 19a

    Determination of isotopologue ratios are a critical tool in plant, microbial and ecosystem ecology, hydrology, biogeochemistry studies, and interrogation of environmental remediation. In addition, the most abundant elements utilized and exchanged by plants, microbes and ecosystems are carbon (C), hydrogen (H), oxygen (O) and nitrogen (N), all of which have naturally occurring stable isotope forms ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Controlled-porosity ceramic materials for high temperature downhole applications

    SBC: Olympic Research, Inc.            Topic: 16a

    Development of high performance downhole components and materials is necessary to enable geothermal exploration and production capabilities in high pressure and high temperature applications. Conventional well materials are poorly suited for corrosive environments. Steel casing, screens, and other wellbore components are susceptible to corrosion in extreme geothermal conditions. An ideal replaceme ...

  8. High Purity 6-inch+ Diameter Single Crystal Germanium Wafers for Dark Matter CCD Photon Detectors

    SBC: PHDS COMPANY            Topic: 28e

    The Department of Energy (DOE) Office of High Energy Physics Research supports advanced photon imaging experiments like DESI and LSST. These new facilities require photon detection and spectroscopic focal plane arrays of the highest possible fidelity and dynamic range. Extension of the sensitivity of these focal planes into the infrared will greatly increase the observable size of the universe and ...

  9. Abrasion/Impact Resistant Coatings for Wind Turbine Blade Protection

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: 15a

    In most wind turbine cases, in the absence of maintenance and repair the polymer composite blades’ service life can be significantly diminished compared to original estimates, and the overall turbine efficiency can severely suffer. Current repair products such as epoxy-based fillers and/or solvent-based paints have very limited abrasion-resistance capabilities. In addition, wind protection tapes ...
