  1. Unstructured Mesh Technologies for Massively Parallel Simulation and Data Analysis of Magnetically Confined Plasmas

    SBC: SIMMETRIX INC.            Topic: 23c

    The simulation of magnetically confined plasmas requires consideration of multiple overlapping scales. Continuum models address reactor scale behaviors, while particle methods capture fine scale behavior. The complex combination of physics and reactor geometry results in simulations involving massive calculations and data sets, which can only be executed on parallel computers. Thus, there is a cri ...

  2. Commercialization of an Ultra-Thin, Bendable, High Efficacy OLED Light Engine

    SBC: OLEDWorks LLC            Topic: 10b

    OLED lighting panels have been available commercially for several years, with relatively slow adoption into commercial and consumer fixtures in the US. This project addresses both channels through the commercialization of an ultra-thin, bendable, high-efficacy OLED light engine in which a panel and driver are engineered together in one low-cost, easy-to-use package. The most significant benefit of ...

  3. Development of the Ultra-Low Loss Superconducting Resonators Integrated with Detectors for Frequency-Domain Multiplexing Readout of Future Cosmic Microwave Background Experiments

    SBC: HYPRES, INC.            Topic: 28f

    Superconducting transition edge sensors are a key technology for measuring the Cosmic Microwave Background radiation leftover from the early universe. To reach the large number of sensors (~400,000-500,000) needed for next generation experiments, solutions must be found to reduce time, weight, size, and cost of the sensor arrays. This project addresses these issues by both integrating the sensors ...

  4. Production of Uranium from Seawater Using a Novel Polymer Adsorbent- Process Development and Cost Analysis

    SBC: LCW Supercritical Technologies Corporation            Topic: 32i

    Seawater contains about 3 parts per billion of uranium. With a total ocean volume of approximately 1.3109 km3, there is at least 4.5 billion tons of uranium in seawater which is about 1000 times the amount of uranium known to exist in terrestrial ores. Mining uranium from seawater is economically feasibility if an efficient, reusable and low-cost adsorbent could be developed. In the past year, ...

  6. Novel Coating for Suppression of Multipactor in High Power Microwave Devices

    SBC: NOKOMIS, INC            Topic: 27a

    Multipactor is an incessant problem that plagues numerous commercial and military systems, including satellites and particle accelerator components such as klystrons, high-power radio frequency windows, and free electron lasers. Current solutions, including traditional coatings such as titanium nitride, or the use of magnetic systems to suppress secondary electron emission, are insufficient to sup ...

  8. Integrated, Interoperable Software Environment for Fusion Simulation and Data Analysis Tools

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: 20c

    The promise of fusion energy is enormous - an energy system whose fuel is obtained fromsimple ingredients, and which yields zero carbon emissions to the atmosphere. However, realizing this vision requires undertaking one of the most challenging programs of scientific research and development that has ever been undertaken. Predictive simulation plays a crucial role in fusion energy research. Such s ...

  10. Enhanced Electronic Interconnects using ZTACH ACA:No Pressure, Low-Temperature, Self-Assembly Material Process

    SBC: Sunray Scientific LLC            Topic: 27e

    Upcoming HEP projects require physical and electrical bonds between opposite points of thin parallel circuit faces which areless than 50 microns in pitch, but current methods, such as bump-soldering and anisotropic conductive adhesives (ACA) and films (ACF) cannot reach these resolution limits and furthermore require heat and pressure that damage delicate circuitry. SunRay ZTACH™ is an anisotrop ...
