  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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. 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. Development of a naNomaterial aNode for a low voltage proportional counter for neutron detection

    SBC: NanoTechLabs Inc.            Topic: 39h

    The objective of this technology transfer effort is to leverage technology developed at Savannah River National Laboratory (SRNL) to develop a portable proportional counter (PC) for neutron detection. NanoTechLabs Inc. (NTL) will develop a portable proportional counter for neutron detection utilizing nanostructured field emitters. Unlike traditional proportional counters, which are typically arran ...

  8. Ion Implantation Processes in AlN for Wide Bandgap Semiconductor Power Devices

    SBC: Adroit Materials            Topic: 02a

    Current and next-generation power systems require power devices that operate at high voltages and high frequencies beyond the reliable operating limit of the present silicon- and silicon carbide-based power devices. The material properties of AlN permit power devices to operate at these extremes, promoting device shrinkage for automotive applications as well faster switching and more efficient pow ...

  9. A Diagnostic for Simultaneous Liquid and Vapor Distributions in Sprays using Filtered Rayleigh and Mie Scattering

    SBC: Metrolaser, Inc.            Topic: 07d

    The understanding of how fuel evaporates and mixes when injected into an engine cylinder is of key importance for the design of cleaner, more efficient vehicles. To meet the Department of Energy & apos;s goals of improving fuel efficiency in gasoline engines by 25 percent and diesel engines by 40 percent, advanced tools for research on fuel injection dynamics are needed. Existing techniques for in ...

  10. Development of nuclear quality components using metal additive manufacturing

    SBC: RadiaBeam Systems, LLC            Topic: 19f

    A major problem with nuclear fission reactors is the welding of components of dissimilar metals, where the filler is usually of an additional metal alloy that is not necessarily the same as the two parts to be joined. Welding of metals will often have a heat affected zone (HAZ) and a thermo- mechanically affected zone (TMAZ), which need to be post-weld heat treated to minimize precipitation or seg ...
