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. High Force Spring Clamp System_A system to substitute spring clamps for bolts when connecting Superconducting RF Cavities in Order to Greatly Reduce Particulate Generation in a Clean Room Environment

    SBC: Hyperboloid L.L.C.            Topic: 30a

    This proposal for an SBIR project is to design and develop a simple system to assemble and seal the vacuum joints of SRF Cavities. The System substitutes highly sprung,“C” shaped spring clamps for bolts and nuts for applying sealing force on the metallic gaskets of cavity flanges. The system minimizes particle generation during assembly in the clean room by avoiding the rubbing/shedding contac ...

  2. Integrated Catalytic Membrane System for Modular Manufacturing Of On-Purpose Propylene at Shale Gas Sites

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 22a

    Shale gas is reshaping petrochemicals. A big change is the generation of “on purpose” propylene (OPP) plants. These OPP plants in most cases are based on propane dehydration (PDH). The reason for OPP plants is the change of mixtures being fed to crackers produces less propylene. In PDH plants, propane are converted to propylene but not quantitatively (e.g. 85% yield) so there is a need to impr ...

  3. Oxygen Separation Membrane For Oxy-Fuel, Coal-Fired Power Plants

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: 22b

    A more efficient, scalable and cost-effective technology is needed to separate oxygen from air for advanced coal-fired power plants based gasification and oxy-fuel combustion. Oxygen-fired systems generate power more efficiently than conventional plants and only water and low concentration contaminants are required to be removed from the flue gas to produce carbon dioxide suitable for transport. C ...

  4. High-Accuracy Angle Generator for Angular Calibration

    SBC: Raytum Photonics LLC            Topic: 12a

    Characterization and metrology (measurement) of super polished x-ray mirrors are extremely critical for the next generation x-ray free electron laser light sources. Currently, DOE light source facilities such as Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) in the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) solely rely on foreign resources to do the characterization and measurement based on the technology deve ...

  5. High-Accuracy Angle Generator For Angular Calibrations To Support Optical Metrology Laboratories and Light Source Facilities.

    SBC: VERMONT PHOTONICS TECHNOLOGIES CORP.            Topic: 12a

    Improving our current ability to measure the shape of x-ray focusing mirrors is necessary to advance our knowledge of the atomic structure of many types of materials, especially for the latest diffraction-limited light sources within the DOE. X-ray studies at DOE national laboratories of the atomic structure of new materials, biological molecules, etc. are limited by the quality of the x-ray spot ...

  6. A Graphene Enhanced SiC- SiC Ceramic Composite Bonding Solution for Generation IV

    SBC: MC Technologies LLC            Topic: 20b

    Ceramic matrix SiC-SiC composites are currently the leading candidate for Generation IV nuclear reactor fuel cladding and other structural components, due to their excellent thermal and chemical stability under extreme conditions. However, robustly joining SiC structures when exposed to such harsh operating conditions still presents a major roadblock. A novel bonding joint compound leveraging grap ...

  7. Highly Transparent Aerogel with Refractive Index < 1.01 for High Energy Particle Detection

    SBC: Scintilex, LLC            Topic: 31d

    Cherenkov radiation, caused by fast charged particles in a transparent medium, is widely used for charged particle identification. To date, gaseous, liquid, and solid radiators have been used as sources of Cherenkov radiation. Aerogels with low refractive index and high light transmittance, are highly desirable for Cherenkov detectors. Development and testing of aerogels with a refractive index as ...

  8. 4D Rheo-SANS Sample Environment for Soft Matter, Biology and Materials Processing

    SBC: STF Technologies LLC            Topic: 17a

    The US scientific and industrial research communities in the broad areas of soft matter (i.e., polymers, complex fluids, nano and colloidal solutions, coatings and inks) and biological materials (i.e., drug delivery, hydrogels, tissue engineering) need, but lack, the ability to effectively study these important materials under flow conditions. Shear fields are widely used as much to process and co ...

  9. Segmented and Blocky Proton Conducting Membranes for Solar Fuels Generator Applications

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: 19b

    The Department of Energy’s Office of Basic Energy Sciences has identified a need for new proton conducting membranes for solar fuel generator applications. Specifically, development of block copolymers with good proton conductivity at ambient temperatures and low gas diffusion and ionic transports are needed. There are currently no commercially available proton conducting membranes which possess ...

  10. Development of High Efficient Ion Selective Membrane Separator for Lithium Polysulfide Redox Flow Batteries

    SBC: Xergy Inc            Topic: 19a

    A growth of renewable energy technologies will help to accommodate the growing demand for electricity, provided that energy storage technologies address the intermittency of renewable energies such as solar and wind power. Lithium polysulfide (Li-PS) redox flow batteries (RFBs) have been considered as one of the most promising electrochemical energy storage technologies because of their high energ ...
