  1. 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, ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Picosecond Timing Measurement IC for Particle Physics Experiments

    SBC: Alphacore, Inc.            Topic: 27j

    Several high energy physics experiments require accurate timing measurements and transient digitization at high sampling rates, equaling or exceeding 5 gigasamples per second (GSPS). To date, only a few transient digitizer chips have been developed for this purpose and they are based on storing the analog samples onto long buffers from which they are digitized with low-rate analog-to-digital conve ...

  8. Controlled-porosity ceramic materials for high temperature downhole applications

    SBC: Olympic Research, Inc.            Topic: 16a

    Development of high performance downhole components and materials is necessary to enable geothermal exploration and production capabilities in high pressure and high temperature applications. Conventional well materials are poorly suited for corrosive environments. Steel casing, screens, and other wellbore components are susceptible to corrosion in extreme geothermal conditions. An ideal replaceme ...
