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. Magnetocaloric Generator for Geothermal Heat Energy Recovery

    SBC: Aqwest LLC            Topic: 10c

    Traditional means for production of electricity from geothermal (GT heat use hot water naturally occurring in some locations at or near Earths surface or hot water obtained from deep wells. The former limits geothermally produced electricity to very few locations in areas of significant volcanic activity. The latter offers more application sites but the extreme cost of the required deep, high-tem ...

  2. High-Shear-Strength, Radiation-Resistant Electrical Insulations for Plasma Confinement Magnets

    SBC: COMPOSITE TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT, INC.            Topic: 22c

    The United States Department of Energy is developing several devices to advance the development of fusion energy. Key components of these systems are the large, complex magnet systems used to shape and confine the plasma. Electrical insulations are needed to ensure that these magnets operate reliably over long periods of time, and improvements in shear strength and radiation resistance will be c ...

  3. Low-Temperature Stirling Engine for Geothermal Electricity Generation

    SBC: Cool Energy, Inc.            Topic: 10c

    Up to 2700 terawatt-hours per year of geothermal electricity generation capacity has been shown to be available within North America, typically with wells drilled into geologically active regions of the earths crust where this energy is concentrated (Huttrer, 2001). Of this potential, about half is considered to have temperatures high enough for conventional (steam-based) power production, while ...

  4. A Compact, Low Power Depolarization Backscattering Cloud Spectrometer for Water and Ice Discrimination

    SBC: Droplet Measurement Technologies, LLC            Topic: 03b

    Mixed phase clouds, i.e. those that contain water droplets and ice crystals, make up a large fraction of the clouds that are found over the Arctic region. The radiative impact of these clouds on climate modulation is highly sensitive to the relative mix of water and ice, the size distribution of these hydrometeors and the shape and optical properties of the ice crystals. The properties of mixed ph ...

  5. High-Power High-Efficiency Power Amplifiers for Synchrotron Light Sources

    SBC: Green Mountain Radio Research Company            Topic: 13d

    Accelerators used for nuclear-physics research require megawatts of radio-frequency energy. They currently employ vacuum-tube power amplifiers or conventional solid-state amplifiers that are inefficient and therefore consume a great deal of prime power. Many other applications including semiconductor processing, cellular-telephone base station transmitters and military communication systems simila ...

  7. A Watershed Based Web Tool Enhancing Climate Model Output Usage

    SBC: Ientech LLC            Topic: 07a

    The native format of netCDF generated from regional climate models (RCMs) is not readily accessible or useable by the general public who may not have analytical tools to plot, visualize, or analyze the data. In response to this need, the overall long term objective of this study is to make high resolution climate change simulations model results in the North American Regional Climate Change Assess ...

  8. Tunable Narrow-Band High Harmonic Beamline Optimized for Ultrafast Soft X-Ray Photoemission and Imaging

    SBC: Kapteyn-Murnane Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: 17a

    This proposed work addresses the needs of a short pulse, tunable and monochromatic extreme ultraviolet and soft X-ray beamline that is table-top, low cost and easy-to-use for advanced material and nano- device studies using photoemission spectroscopy and nano-imaging techniques. The short-pulse and short- wavelength nature of this source enables capturing ultrafast dynamics in materials and nano-d ...

  9. Advanced Technologies for Compact 100 W-class Ultrafast Ti:sapphire Lasers to Support DOE Facilities Needs

    SBC: Kapteyn-Murnane Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: 09d

    The development of new DOE ultrashort-pulse x-ray facilities creates exciting new possibilities for understanding dynamic processes in nature on the fundamental atomic length and length scales; i.e. sub- nm and femtosecond. However, to make full use of planned facilities such as the Short Pulse X-ray (SPX) facility planned as a major part of the Advanced Photon Source Upgrade (APS-U), correspondin ...

  10. User-Centered, Collaborative, Web and Radiance-Based Lighting Simulation, Visualization, and Analysis

    SBC: LIGHT FOUNDRY, LLC            Topic: 02c

    The Radiance lighting simulation system, primarily developed by the Department of Energy, is capable of helping teams solve a variety of problems related to daylight and energy efficiency. Nevertheless, for non-experts this platform is notoriously difficult to install and use, hence limiting its impact to industry. The technical objective is to harden Radiance for profitable commercial use. Light ...
