  1. The Characterization and Mitigation of Single Event Effects in Ultra-Deep Submicron (< 90nm) Microelectronics

    SBC: Orora Design Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DTRA07005

    Orora Design Technologies proposes to develop electronic design automation (EDA) tools employing minimally invasive circuit design-based methods to mitigate single event effects (SEEs) for next generation Ultra-DSM CMOS (

  2. In-situ Monitoring of the Radioactive Contaminant Tc-99 in Groundwater Using a Reagentless Equilibrium-based Sensor

    SBC: BURGE ENVIRONMENTAL, INC.            Topic: 49b

    The long-term monitoring of groundwater contamination plumes to determine the fate of contaminants in the environment is expensive and labor intensive. Current baseline methods have resulted in monitoring programs that collect less data than is required to fully understand the fate and transport mechanisms of the contaminants. In this project, an automated field-deployable monitoring system, whi ...

  3. HydroMax- Overcoming the Challenges of Industrial Coal Gasification

    SBC: Diversified Energy Corporation            Topic: 18

    Volatile natural gas prices are negatively impacting the U.S. industrial sector, which consumes approximately 6.6 trillion cubic feet of natural gas annually. Over the last 24 months, natural gas prices have fluctuated between $5 and $12 per MMBtu, resulting in high and unpredictable fuel costs for the industrial sector. With abundant coal resources, an opportunity exists for the U.S. industrial ...

  4. Step-Out Process to Upgrade Clycerol to Bio-Diesel

    SBC: Exelus, Inc.            Topic: 07

    The production of biodiesel around the world is increasing at an astonishing pace. In the U.S., total annual production capacity is expected to be almost 2 billion gallons by the end of 2008. At this production rate, over 660,000 metric tons of glycerol will be produced as a by-product each year ¿ over 2.5 times the current U.S. glycerol production capacity ¿ creating a glycerol glut with few ...

  5. A Cost-Effective Analytical Technology for Identification and Measurement of Greenhouse Gases

    SBC: Lenterra, Inc.            Topic: 47

    This project will develop a cost-effective analytical technology platform for identifying and measuring concentrations of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide and trace greenhouse gas constituents such as carbon monoxide. The proposed analytical platform is based on Penning Ionization Electron Spectroscopy (PIES) in plasma. PIES technology relies on a simple analog ...

  6. Microchannel Magnetic Coolers with Negative Magnetocaloric Effect

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: 11

    The recent discovery of a negative magnetocaloric effect in CoMnT1-xT¿x alloys (where T, T¿ = Si, Ge, Sn) at room temperature opens new prospects for the development of high-efficiency solid micro-cooling devices. This project will combine these novel alloys with cutting edge technology for microchannel regenerators to develop lightweight, compact, low cost, and environmentally friendly cooling ...

  7. A New Sorbent for Removal of Mercury from Flue Gas: A Lower Cost Alternative to Activated Carbon-REVISED

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: 21

    The cost of reducing mercury emissions from coal-fired power plants is an impediment to the implementation of new mercury emission standards, particularly in older power plants. The use of a sorbent to capture mercury from the flue gas is considered to be the most effective approach, but issues pertaining to secondary emissions and the degradation of the fly-ash byproduct (which results from entr ...

  8. High Performance Lossy Dielectric HOM Absorbers for SRF Cavities

    SBC: SIENNA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 27

    Recently developed high thermal conductivity aluminum nitride (AlN) based lossy dielectrics can replace the toxic beryllia (BeO) based lossy dielectrics as high order mode (HOM) absorbers in superconductor radio frequency (SRF) cavities in linear accelerators and in microwave tubes. AlN-based lossy dielectrics must be joined metallic copper members in these applications. However, lack of suitable ...

  9. Miniature Spherical Retroreflectors Fabricated by Fluidized Bed CVD


    Miniature spherical retroreflectors are an enabling technology for remote laser sensing of chemical, biological and radiological agents in the atmosphere. Prior to this SBIR project, no suitable fabrication technique existed to produce spherical retroreflectors with the required graded index of refraction structure. This project will produce spherical retroreflectors with compositional grading fr ...

  10. Stable, Efficient, Large Area WOLED


    In 2001, lighting was estimated to consume 8.2 quads (approximately 762 TWh), or about 22% of the total electricity generated in the U.S. New, high-efficiency, solid-state light sources, such as organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs), are needed to help reduce the ever increasing demand for energy. Potentially, an OLED is an inexpensive and energy saving diffuse source that may compete with conve ...
