  1. Single Photon Frequency Convertor with High Quantum Efficiency

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: 06a

    The overall goal of this SBIR is to increase the accessibility and range of emerging all-fiber quantum networks by significantly advancing the state-of-the-art in optical quantum networks using fully integrated, single-pass, quantum frequency conversion (QFC). Fiber-based quantum networks, to take advantage of low losses and the wide range of existing network components and infrastructure, are exp ...

  2. Micro-Pulse DIAL for Atmospheric Water Vapor Profiling

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: 25b

    Water vapor plays a key role in Earth’s climate and weather patterns. Accurate, high resolution measurements of the water vapor vertical profiles in a region have been found to significantly improve the numerical weather prediction models’ short-term forecasts, precipitation forecasts, as well as severe weather forecasts. However, current measurement techniques provide very coarse resolution i ...

  4. Permeability control for enhanced oil and gas recovery in unconventional reservoirs using advanced mineral precipitation technologies

    SBC: Montana Emergent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 20b

    Unconventional oil and gas recovery has succeeded because of the ability to increase permeability in tight source rock via fracturing- While this has led to large increases in resource recovery, the ability to modify fracture apertures to allow finer control of permeability in these rocks has the potential to increase recovery efficiency- This SBIR project focuses on developing and commercializing ...

  5. Gamma-Heated In-Core Thermoacoustic Sensor

    SBC: Btech Acoustics, LLC            Topic: 30a

    We will develop an acoustically-telemetered, frequency-multiplexed, gamma-heated thermoacoustic sensors that can simultaneously monitor local gamma flux and coolant temperature at multiple locations in the core of an operating commercial nuclear reactor. These sensors will require no external power source and will telemeter temperature encoded as the frequency of the sound radiated by the sensor a ...

  6. Development of a Wind Turbine Blade Surface Coating to Reduce Damage due to Lightning

    SBC: AQUANIS, INC.            Topic: 14b

    Lightning strikes and near-strikes on wind turbine blades cost wind farm operators millions of dollars every year, representing one of their largest O&M risks and expenses, as well as a primary cause of turbine downtime (resulting in lost power production). These negative effects increase the levelized cost of wind energy. With the incidence of lightning strikes increasing as turbines get larger, ...

  7. Low Tortuosity Electrodes Enabling High Specific Energy Li Ion Batteries

    SBC: GLACIGEN MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: 13a

    Despite all of the advantages that electric vehicles bring, better battery performance remains a requirement of widespread commercial adoption. Areas of specific interest include improved specific energy and energy density coupled with improved manufacturing processes which reduce costs and increase throughputs. This project aims to demonstrate a unique processing method, freeze tape casting, whic ...

  8. Developing BEM Applications for the Reinsurance Industry

    SBC: Prisere Llc            Topic: 09c

    Inefficient use of energy wastes capital that could be more productively invested in other segments of the U.S. economy. At the same time, the reinsurance industry is eager to reduce property losses arising from increasingly severe weather. But existing reinsurance loss models do not take into consideration the resiliency benefits of energy efficiency measures. The objective of the Phase I SBIR re ...

  9. Ultra-Durable Polyolefin Based Waterproofing Coating

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: A16114

    The U.S. Army is interested in the development of innovative materials, films, coatings and technologies or manufacturing techniques which allow current U.S. Army airdrop related hardware and equipment to survive fresh and salt water operations with increased reliability and without damage and significant maintenance impact. Resodyn Corporation proposes for development a durable, moisture-impermea ...

  10. Ion Exchange Materials for Lithium Extraction (Topic: 15, Subtopic: e)

    SBC: Lilac Solutions, Inc.            Topic: 15e

    Electric vehicles are creating unprecedented demand for lithium. Most lithium is produced from brine resources. Conventional methods for extracting lithium from brines suffer from low lithium recovery and cannot access the expanded resources needed for mass adoption of electric vehicles. The Department of Energy has supported a great variety of projects relate ...
