  1. Nanoporous Ceramic Ion Exchange Membranes in Non-Aqueous Redox Flow Batteries

    SBC: Membrion, Inc.            Topic: 19a

    Replacement of on-demand fossil fuels with intermittent renewable energy technologies such as solar cells and wind turbines is not possible without grid-scale energy storage. Redox flow batteries are a safe, scalable and long-lasting solution to this problem but two components, the membrane & electrolyte, accounts for more than 60% of the battery cost which limits market penetration. New low-cost ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Geophysical System for Fluid Flow and Fracture Imaging

    SBC: Hydrogeophysics Inc            Topic: 21d

    This project seeks to establish new geophysical and computational methods to image fluid migration through induced and natural hard rock fracture systems. Fluid flow imaging of fracture systems can be used to help eliminate irrelevant microfracture events and establish production borehole connectivity to induced fractures. A few existing microseismic techniques attempt to employ fluid flow meterin ...

  4. In-situ Transmission Electron Microscopy Characterization of Electrochemical Processes in Solid-state Energy Storage Devices with Air Sensitive Materials

    SBC: Hummingbird Precision Machine Inc.            Topic: 15d

    Fundamental scientific advances are needed to create breakthrough materials that will improve the performance of electrical and energy storage devices. Over the last decade in- situ transmission electron microscopy (TEM) has been used to characterize these materials in devices at resolutions down to the atomic level. Importantly, this can also be done at the same time that the devices are operatin ...

  5. Cryogenic Temperature Controlled Electrical Biasing In-situ TEM Sample Platform

    SBC: Hummingbird Precision Machine Inc.            Topic: 15d

    Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) is primary characterization method used to determine nanoscale features and local internal structure of materials. However, conventional TEM observations are usually performed under conditions different from a material’s actual working environment. If electrical biasing signals can be applied to the sample then the relationship between structural properties ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Low cost, High speed Multi-probe Monitoring System for Subsurface Gases

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: 24b

    Determination of soil gas concentrations and 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 respond to redox c ...

  8. Switched-Field Surface NMR for Enhanced Detection andResolution of Shallow Groundwater

    SBC: Vista Clara Inc.            Topic: 24c

    This proposal addresses the challenge of mapping groundwater and hydrogeologic parameters in the subsurface, with a focus on improving sensitivity and spatial resolution for shallow groundwater targets. We will apply imaging methodologies at the core of medical MRI to efficiently map shallow groundwater and hydrogeologic properties at improved resolution. Conventional surface NMR has been proven a ...

  9. MODE: The Multi-omics Data Exploration Platform

    SBC: Hafen Consulting, LLC            Topic: 01c

    In the biological and environmental sciences, data are being generated at an unprecedented rate. There are many scientific discoveries pertinent to DOE missions that are waiting to happen from high-throughput biological data, if only it could be efficiently and effectively managed and explored. The size and complexity of the data are the main factors that pose challenges to effective exploration, ...

  10. Integrated Sorbent-based Lithium, Power, and Water Recovery from Geothermal Brines

    SBC: STRATOFIRE LC            Topic: 17a

    Geothermal brines used in power generation can be a potential source of critical elements, such as lithium. However, current technological approaches cannot achieve high selectivity of target elements available in trace concentrations from a complex geothermal brine matrix with high concentration of non-desirable mineral content. StratoFire and Southern Research propose to develop and optimize an ...
