  1. Vertical GaN Substrates

    SBC: Sixpoint Materials, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SixPoint Materials will create low-cost, high-quality vertical gallium nitride (GaN) substrates using a multi-phase production approach that employs both hydride vapor phase epitaxy (HVPE) technology and ammonothermal growth techniques to lower costs and maintain crystal quality. Substrates are thin wafers of semiconducting material needed for power devices. In its two-phase project, SixPoint Mate ...

  2. Automatic Calibration of High-Performance Metrological Instrumentation

    SBC: ABEAM TECHNOLOGIES INC.            Topic: 04c

    Metrology is a multi-billion dollar industry that is an indispensable part of science and manufacturing. A variety of techniques including interferometric microscopes, scanning electron microscopes (SEM), X-ray, and atomic force microscopes (AFM) are used in X- ray mirror manufacturing. The performance of any tool directly depends on the ability to characterize and tune it. Modulation Transfer Fun ...

  3. Computational design of a Novel dehydratase for renewable fuels and chemicals

    SBC: PROTABIT LLC            Topic: 12b

    The reaction catalyzed by dihydroxyacid dehydratase is a key bottleneck in the biosynthesis of isobutanol from glucose, caused in part by extremely inefficient maturation of the catalytically essential Fe-S cofactor (~1%) when the dehydratase is recombinantly expressed. One strategy to relieve this bottleneck is to replace this complicated, energetically expensive enzyme with a simpler one that us ...

  4. Comprehensive, Time-Resolved Molecular Speciation of Gaseous and Particulate Organic Constituents in the Atmosphere

    SBC: Aerosol Dynamics Inc.            Topic: 17d

    Development of new instrumentation for measuring volatile organic compounds (VOC) and intermediate volatility organic compounds (IVOC) that may react to form secondary organic aerosols (SOA) has been identified as a vital need by DOE. Revealing the detailed mechanisms leading to SOA formation from gas phase precursors is best achieved by measuring both phases with sufficient temporal resolution to ...

  5. Microfluidic automation platform for synthetic biology applications in the development and production of next-generation biofuels

    SBC: Hj Science & Technology, Inc.            Topic: 21j

    Generating and screening multiple combinations of genes, enzymes, and other biological parts has become vital to next generation biofuel development and production. This currently requires large personnel costs and sizeable capital investments in robotics equipment. Commercial adoption of the synthetic biology technology will require high throughput capabilities, low cost, product reliability, and ...

  6. A hybrid HTS/LTS Superconductor Design for High-Field Accelerator Magnets

    SBC: Particle Beam Lasers, Inc.            Topic: 33b

    The next generation of particle accelerators, including a proposed LHC upgrade, will move to higher energy and luminosity in order to continue the exploration beyond the limits of the present LHC. This will require new technologyin particular, higher field (20T or more) dipoles as well as better interaction-region quadrupoles to focus the beams at the collision points. This proposal seeks to add ...

  7. Thermo-Mechanically Stable Tungsten Powders as Solid Catchers for the Fast Release of Stopped Rare Isotopes

    SBC: Innosense Llc            Topic: 38g

    The Department of Energy (DOE) seeks useful methods of generating intense beams of reaccelerated rare isotopes for the next-generation Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB), which is currently under construction at Michigan State University. Stopping high-energy, heavy- ion reaction products in fast-release solid catchers is an important method to be developed for realizing intense beams of short ...

  8. Methodology for Attrition Evaluation of Oxygen Carriers in Chemical Looping Systems

    SBC: ENVERGEX LLC            Topic: 11d

    This Small Business Innovation Research (STTR) project targets the development of novel methodology for the evaluation of a wide range of oxygen carriers, in particular, their attrition resistance, under conditions that broadly account for the process requirements of coal-based chemical looping systems. Existing test protocols and procedures for the evaluation of granular materials do not accurate ...

  9. Ionomer Dispersion Impact on Advanced Fuel Cell and Electrolyzer Performance and Durability

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 09b

    The ionomer dispersion technology invented at LANL has demonstrated great potential to significantly improve the lifetime of proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells via accelerated stress tests. However, more validation and improvements are needed to make this technology commercially viable for PEM fuel cell-based hydrogen vehicles. The overall project is to further improve and validate this ion ...

  10. Automated process for the fabrication of highly customized thermally insulated cladding systems

    SBC: Polycel Inc            Topic: 03b

    Adding thermal insulation to existing building envelopes can be an effective way of reducing building energy use. While most thermal insulation materials are affordable, the cost of installing thermal insulation into existing buildings can be expensive. Real facades are also characterized by many unique elements that affect their rated thermal performance, such as corners, windows, d ...
