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. Retrofittable and Transparent Super-Insulator for Single-Pane Windows

    SBC: NANOSD, INC.            Topic: DE-FOA-0001429

    NanoSD, Inc. with its partners will develop a transparent, nanostructured thermally insulating film that can be applied to existing single-pane windows to reduce heat loss. To produce the nanostructured film, the team will create hollow ceramic or polymer nanobubbles and consolidate them into a dense lattice structure using heat and compression. Because it is mostly air, the resulting nanobubble s ...

  2. Field Deployable In Situ Excitation Emission Matrix Spectroscopy System for Subsurface Monitoring

    SBC: Accustrata, Inc.            Topic: 19a

    Anthropogenic influences and natural processes can have long lasting effects on the health of the subsurface environment. Subsurface water is heavily affected by changes in the environment and its quality is regarded as a powerful metric for evaluating the health of the subsurface environment. Therefore, constant monitoring of groundwater quality to identify influences over the seasonal hydrologic ...

  3. Spouted Bed Reactor Designs for Thermal Desorption of Mercury Compounds

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 18a

    Thermal desorption systems are being utilized to remove toxic mercury compounds from coal. However, high moisture level, poor mixing, and unsuitable heating rate reduce the efficiency of thermal desorption units. Spouted bed reactor, which have been used in various physical operations such as drying, presents a possible solution in reducing moisture level and increasing particles mixing. The propo ...

  4. Development of an Autonomous Aerosol Chemical Speciation Monitor with Integrated Calibration and Quality Assurance Capability.

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 20b

    Statement of the Problem: Ambient aerosol particles play a significant role in adversely affecting human health, in altering the chemistry and the radiative balance of the Earth’s atmosphere, and in reducing visibility. However, there are significant uncertainties in the sources and chemical transformations of particulate matter and how they relate to climate forcing. Organic aerosol is a key co ...

  6. High Sensitive Methane Sensor for Real-time Measurements of Methane Isotopes


    Determination of isotopologue ratios are a critical tool in plant, microbial and ecosystem ecology, hydrology, biogeochemistry studies, and interrogation of environmental remediation. In addition, the most abundant elements utilized and exchanged by plants, microbes and ecosystems are carbon (C), hydrogen (H), oxygen (O) and nitrogen (N), all of which have naturally occurring stable isotope forms ...

  7. Resonant Cavity Light Emitting Diodes for Infrared Gas Spectroscopy


    The predictive skill of reactive transport models of hydrobiogeochemical processes currently being used to simulate the coupled interactions of complex subsurface systems (soils, rhizosphere, sediments, aquifers, the vadose zone and groundwaters) is limited by the accuracy of the model parameters that represent subsurface system structure and intrinsic properties. Robust field testing to validate ...

  9. n-FTIR: Bringing Sensitive, Rapid, and Robust Chemical/optical Analysis to the Nanoscale

    SBC: Anasys Instruments Corp.            Topic: 07a

    Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) is one of the most widely used techniques for chemical analysis, representing a market size of over $1B. Infrared spectroscopy is also fast, sensitive, affordable and easy to use, but suffers from a fundamental limit on spatial resolution on the scale of one to many micrometers. A very large number of modern materials and devices have nanometer scale ...

  10. Layer-by-layer Deposition of Ultra-thin Hybrid/ microporous Membrane for CO2 Separation

    SBC: Angstrom Thin FIlm Technologies LLC            Topic: 15a

    CO2 separation and capture is a global topic that is closely related to energy and environment. Separation via membrane techniques is energy-efficient compared to other separation techniques. Among various membranes, porous membranes usually have good performance in gas flux but poor performance in selectivity. The flux of a porous membrane is dependent on the membrane thickness; the selectivity o ...
