  2. Stable Perovskite Core-shell Nanocrystals as Down-Converting Phosphors for Solid State Lighting

    SBC: PHOSPHORTECH            Topic: 14a

    Colloidal perovskite quantum dots (QDs) or nanocrystals (NCs) with structure of CsPbX3 (X = Cl, Br, I) are promising materials as down-converting phosphors due to their high quantum yield up to >90%, extremely narrow emission band ~15-30 nm, and tunable emission wavelengths of ~410−700 nm via size or composition control. Compared to other QD materials, the optical and electronic properties of pe ...

  3. Development of Flow-Pattern Manipulator for Membraneless Seawater Desalination

    SBC: ThermoFlow Labs, LLC            Topic: 21a

    By 2025, 1.8 billion people will be living in places with severe water scarcity and two-thirds of the global population will encounter some degree of water stress. If warming continues at the current pace, by 2030 half of the world’s population will experience severe water stress (Runte 2016). The demands are strong; the restraints, on the other hand, come from (1) high capital investment for eq ...

  4. A microfluidic ice nucleating particle counter for continuous measurements from small aerial platforms

    SBC: Handix Scientific LLC            Topic: 23a

    Quantifying atmospheric aerosol, clouds and precipitation processes are critical needs for understanding and interpreting Earth’s changing energy budget, is a DOE objective, and is of broader benefit to the public. Specifically, the formation of ice in the atmosphere depends on the nature and abundance of ice nucleating particles, and has major implications for precipitation and cloud interactio ...

  5. Fidelity Enhancement of Nuclear Power Plant Simulators Utilizing High Fidelity Simulation Predictions

    SBC: WESTERN SERVICES CORPORATION            Topic: 30c

    Accurate simulation of nuclear power plant behavior is necessary for both engineering and training applications. An engineering grade simulator, used for design, safety analysis and operations, is characterized by high fidelity, computational power, lack of real-time capability, and user non-interactive environment. By contrast, a training grade simulator, used for operator training and education, ...

  6. Low-cost and Flexible Transparent Electrodes Based on Ag–ZTOF (Zn–Sn–O–F) Amorphous Composites Through Ink-jet Printing

    SBC: HAZEN RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: 09b

    Sn-doped In2O3 (ITO) is the industry standard and most widely used transparent conducting electrode (TCE) because of its good electrical and optical properties. However, ITO has a number of disadvantages: ITO is not a suitable TCE for next-generation, high-efficiency, flexible OLEDs, because of its inappropriate work function, difficulty in creating desired patterns, low stability, delaminantion d ...

  7. A Concrete Additive Manufacturing Process for Fixed and Floating Wind Turbine Foundations and Towers

    SBC: JC Solutions            Topic: 14b

    Tall towers and foundations for modern offshore and land-based wind turbines are too large to transport over roads or rail due to their extremely large dimensions. Existing “one-off” on-site construction methods are too expensive, and are too slow for manufacturing foundations and towers in the large numbers needed, especially for offshore components manufactured in ports with limited lay-down ...

  8. Advanced Mechanical Testing (AMT) System for Highly Irradiated Materials

    SBC: Product Innovation And Engineering, LLC            Topic: 32a

    Establish means and methods to perform comprehensive mechanical characterization using miniature tensile specimens for highly irradiated materials. The solution should aid in dramatic reduction of irradiated material waste and provide feasibility for easy incorporation and remote operation within hot cell environments. Based on previous research, an Advanced Mechanical Test (AMT) test bed incorpor ...

  9. CORC; Cable Based High Field Hybrid Magnets for Future Colliders

    SBC: Advanced Conductor Technologies LLC            Topic: 26b

    "The next generation of very high field accelerator magnets (20 T or more) are expected to be made with high-temperature superconductors (HTS) along with conventional low-temperature superconductors (LTS) to reduce cost. The operation and protection of these magnets becomes very challenging particularly if the HTS coils are made with the tapes and operate at a much lower current than the LTS coils ...

  10. Scaleup of a Combined Spray Pyrolysis and Fluidized-bed Reactor Method for the Production of High Performing Layered Nickel- rich Cathode Materials as a Continuous Process

    SBC: HAZEN RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: 14a

    To increase the utilization of electric vehicles, the US Department of Energy is seeking to reduce the cost of electric vehicle batteries to less than $125/kWh by 2022. To achieve this goal, the costs of cathode materials, which account for approximately 30% of the cost of vehicle batteries, must be reduced significantly. To address the challenge of lowering the costs of advanced lithium battery c ...
