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. Inert-Gas Buffering for Particle Size Separation of Superconductor Precursor Powders

    SBC: Accelerator Technology Corporation            Topic: 35

    78953 In the fabrication of powder-in-tube (PIT) Nb3Sn superconductors, needed for high energy physics applications, the particle size distribution limits the final filament size to which the strand can be drawn. In previous work, a virtual impactor (VI) aerosol particle sizing process was developed to process powders with near-zero-defect removal of all particles larger than a desired threshol ...

  2. Accelerated Biomethanation of Sequestered Carbon Dioxide and Paraffin in Coal Beds

    SBC: Altuda Energy Corporation            Topic: 16b

    78000 One way to reduce greenhouse gases is to sequester carbon dioxide. Once sequestered, a bioconversion process can convert carbon dioxide into methane, an environmentally friendly energy source. The process requires an abundance of hydrogen, which is present in the hydrogen-rich coal macerals and paraffin. This project will develop techniques to accelerate the in situ biomethanation of sequ ...

  3. Using Downhole Probes to Locate and Characterize Buried Transuranic and Mixed Low Level Waste

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: 26b

    76059S In order to safely remove transuranic waste (TRU) and mixed low-level waste buried in the subsurface disposal areas (SDAs), it is important to anticipate exactly what materials are directly below the surface. This project will develop neutron-based, logging tools that can identify TRU and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the vicinity of probe holes, thereby permitting safer retrieval ...

  4. Robust Remote Seismic Station

    SBC: Geotech Instruments, Llc            Topic: 19a

    75604S The U.S. government sponsors and supports various programs to monitor nuclear explosions through seismic, hydroacoustic, and infrasound data collection stations. These stations are typically deployed in remote areas all over the world. However, current remote data acquisition station technology is limited by (1) poor data quality and reliability and (2) high installation, operation, and ...

  5. Boron Nitride Capacitors for Advanced Power Electronic Devices

    SBC: Integrated Micro Sensors, Inc.            Topic: 29

    79564S Silicon carbide (SiC) is being used to break barriers with respect to the design and fabrication of high-temperature, high-power transistors, but capacitors remain the weak link in achieving higher temperature electronics. SiC devices have been demonstrated to operate safely at temperatures up to 400¿C, but at these temperatures, capacitors have been shown to severely degrade. High-tem ...

  6. Advanced Sealed Bearing Asembly for Positive Discplacment Motors used in Micro-borehole Driling


    78930S Advances in "microhole" technologies, which use portable drilling rigs with a smaller footprint and lower environmental impact, are needed to benefit the small driller. This project will develop an advanced sealed bearing assembly for positive displacement motors (PDMs) suitable for micro-hole drilling. Advanced hydrodynamic rotary seal and thrust bearing designs, as well as the seal bea ...

  7. Nanostructured Coatings by Pulsed Plasma Processing for Alloys used in Coal-Fired Environments

    SBC: KARTA TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: 15b

    79811 Coal-fired power plants are a significant part of the nation¿s power generating capacity, currently accounting for more than 55 percent of the country¿s total electricity production. Efficient and profitable operation of coal-fired power plants requires higher steam temperatures, necessitating the use of advanced alloys such as ferritic and austenitic alloys. A major concern in using the ...

  8. Organic Additives as Redox Shuttles for Overcharge Protection of Lithium Ion Batteries

    SBC: Lithium Power Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 17c

    78950S Lithium-ion batteries have been selected as the long-term battery solution for electric vehicles (EV) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEV). However, lithium-ion batteries are sensitive to certain types of abuse, particularly overcharge abuse wherein the normal operating voltage is exceeded during recharge. In the overcharge state, lithium-ion batteries could cause irreversible, exothermic ...

  9. Automated Synthesis Module for Labeling Peptides with Fluorine-18

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: 04b

    78763S 18F-FDG ([18F]2-deoxy-2-fluoro-D-glucose) is widely used for the diagnosis, staging, and monitoring of malignancies using positron emission tomography (PET). However, its accumulation in tissue is not specific to malignancies only, and also is ineffective for detecting cancers with no enhanced glucose utilization. Consequently, there is a great need to develop tumor-selective PET agents. ...

  10. Separation of Y-86 in One-Step Method for PET

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: 04b

    78757S Yttrium-86 is a positron emitter with a 14.7 hour half-life and has proven to be suitable for the assessment of Y-90-pharmaceutical biodistribution with positron emission tomography (PET). Because Y-86 can be produced in a cyclotron by bombardment of a strontium target with ~14 MeV protons, it potentially is readily available. However, its routine production is not optimal because curren ...
