  1. Improved Membranes for Solar Fuels Generators

    SBC: Tetramer Technologies,L.L.C.            Topic: 19b

    Solar fuels generators harness solar energy as the power source to facilitate the generation of either hydrogen or carbon based fuels. In both cases, water is electrochemically oxidized to produce oxygen, protons and electrons at the anode. Hydrogen or carbon based fuels are produced simultaneously at the cathode by the reduction of protons or carbon dioxide, respectively. Ion exchange membranes a ...

  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. High Light Output, High Yield Plastic Scintillator Fibers

    SBC: Tetramer Technologies,L.L.C.            Topic: 31d

    Plastic scintillators are relatively easy to manufacture and cheaper compared to their inorganic counterparts. The main drawbacks of plastic scintillators are low light output and low resolution which limits their applications. To develop a new, higher performance family of plastic scintillators and fibers, it is essential to use advances in polymer science and a fundamental understanding of molec ...

  4. SOFTOX FOR STRANDED GAS UTILIZATION

    SBC: Modular Chemical, Inc.            Topic: 22a

    Many of today’s oil producers are forced to flare associated natural gas or shut-in wells because they cannot economically bring the gas to market. Natural gas flaring and venting exposes produc- ers to environmental liabilities, reduces potential revenues, and depreciates assets. Initially, this project will focus on a particularly acute problem for many producers—the co-production (with oil) ...

  5. PVDF-film for Robust Online Assessment of Composite Tanks (PROACT)

    SBC: Advent Innovations Ltd. Co.            Topic: 10d

    To stimulate the U.S. economy and global competitiveness there is a push to reduce dependence on foreign oil imports and establish a domestic power and fuel industry using efficient, reliable clean energy technologies. A promising development is the introduction of fuel cell electric vehicles using hydrogen, which can achieve significantly higher efficiencies than combustion engines resulting in o ...

  6. Improved Ionomers and Membranes for Fuel Cells

    SBC: Tetramer Technologies,L.L.C.            Topic: 10a

    Polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells are one of the most promising energy conversion technologies for renewable clean energy applications. The development of alternatives to current commercial perfluorosulfonic acid based membranes, that lower cost and increase performance, would increase penetration of fuel cell technology into the mass market. This work will focus on the synthesis and develop ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Biodegradable Lubricant from Esterified Propoxylated Glycerol

    SBC: Tetramer Technologies,L.L.C.            Topic: 15a

    Current hydropower facilities employ a variety of electrical and mechanical equipment that necessitate the use of lubricants to ensure efficient operation of said equipment.The lubricants, either oils or greases, aid in reducing friction, dissipating heat, prevent oxidation, and sealing of water and debris from vital areas of the equipment.During operation, equipment may be submerged or otherwise ...

  9. Advanced Manufacturing of Gas Diffusion Layers with Highly Engineered Porosity

    SBC: GLACIGEN MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: 17b

    Proton exchange membrane fuel cells are exciting for many reasons and are one of the more advanced alternative energy technologies to realize early commercialization – fuel cell powered vehicles are on the road- The gas diffusion layer is a critical component in these fuel cell systems which not only controls water and reactant transport, but contributes to thermal management, and provide electr ...

  10. 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 ...
