  1. Low Cost Data Acquisition Synchronization for Nuclear Physics Applications

    SBC: KLIMA, JOANNA            Topic: 27b

    The DOE Office of Nuclear Physics (NP) seeks innovations that will advance our nation’s capability to perform nuclear physics research, and more specifically to improve DOE Nuclear Physics (NP) Facilities and the wider NP community experimental programs. For example, data acquisition (DAQ) for the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB), currently under construction, will require considerable spe ...

  2. Novel Membranes for Electrochemical Hydrogen Compression Enabling Increased Pressure Capability and High Pumping Efficiency

    SBC: Xergy Inc            Topic: 17d

    Climate change and reduction in the cost of renewable energy systems have set the stage for wide-scale decarbonization of the energy economy. Adoption of hydrogen as an energy vector inevitably necessitates the infrastructure of technologies to enable distribution and storage of hydrogen. Xergy’s technological contribution addresses the need to efficiently compress hydrogen gas using electrochem ...

  3. Developing an Automated Uncertainty Quantification Tool to Improve Watershed-Scale Predictions ofWater and Nutrient Cycling

    SBC: Finsterle, Stefan            Topic: 01c

    Managing the flow of water, nutrients, and contaminants in watersheds is vital to addressing pressing issues related to water scarcity, access to clean drinking water, energy production, resilience to natural and anthropogenic perturbations, and ecological restoration. Decisions about the management of watersheds critically depend on the accuracy with which the flow of water and chemicals through ...

  4. Wide Angle Neutron Spin Echo Device

    SBC: Adelphi Technology, Inc.            Topic: 12a

    The Neutron Spin Echo (NSE) method has provided unique information about the dynamics of soft materials, including confirmation of the de Gennes model of polymer reptation, and quantitative measurement of the bending moduli of various membranes. In almost all cases these measurements have been made at small neutron scattering angles, where structural correlations with length scales between 10 nm a ...

  5. Low-cost, Time-resolved Chemical Characterization of Atmospheric Aerosols

    SBC: Aerosol Devices Inc.            Topic: 23b

    The composition of atmospheric particulate matter (“aerosols”) strongly influences health and environmental impacts, but there exist few time-resolved, long-term records of particle-phase chemical composition due to lack of appropriate monitoring tools. Needed is an instrument that is robust, easy-to-operate, with automated calibrations and data reduction, to provide operationally-inexpensive ...

  6. Tip-based Femtosecond Multiphoton Spectroscopy with Radiative Heating

    SBC: Laser Prismatics LLC            Topic: 10a

    One of grand challenges in nanoscience and nanotechnology is to achieve fundamental under- standing of the dynamic evolution of materials in actual operating environment, non-equilibrium conditions, or undergoing chemical reactions at the nanoscale. This requires forefront advances in imaging and analysis techniques that combine nanometer-scale spatial resolution, optical excitation and spectrosco ...

  7. Permanent Magnet (PM) Induction Heater for Paraffin Abatement

    SBC: AUSTIN GEOTECH SERVICES INC            Topic: 20b

    There are an estimated 1.7 million oil and gas wells in the United States, 771,000 of these are considered marginal producers. Combined they make up 11.3% of the US oil production and 8.3% of the US gas production. In that last 10 years, over 131,000 of these oil wells and 48,000 gas wells have been plugged and abandoned. Most of these wells suffer from paraffin plugging problems. The only way to ...

  8. High-Speed Platform for Highly Parallel STM lithography and Hierarchical Assembly

    SBC: Zyvex Labs LLC            Topic: 17e

    Nanotechnology has failed to live up to its promise of exploiting the emerging properties at the nanoscale because of the lack of manufacturing precision thus denying society many energy saving materials and applications. There is therefore a strong need to realize the promise of complex nanosystems by developing atomically precise manufacturing (APM). This project targets a key component of an At ...

  9. 3A Expanding Access to Electronic Property Modeling in Scintillator Crystal Growth and Development

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 03a

    The development of radiation detection materials would benefit with greater access to computational models that relate physical traits seen in manufacture with complex energy transitions occurring in the material that control operating performance. However, the HPC requirements behind these models remain beyond the reach of most businesses involved in this small yet vital field impacting National ...

  10. A Multi-channel Radiation-tolerant, Low-power, High-speed, and Resolution Analog-to-Digital Converter for Nuclear Physics Detectors

    SBC: TallannQuest LLC            Topic: 28b

    Cost-effective and power-efficient radiation tolerant semiconductors are needed in various harsh environments, such as particle detectors, communication satellites, high-altitude avionics and medical imagining equipment. These include amplifiers, voltage regulators, analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) and digital logic circuitry. However, radiation-tolerant high-speed ADCs currently cost more than ...
