  1. Advanced Assessment to Accelerate Diagnostic Skill Acquisition

    SBC: Parallel Consulting, LLC            Topic: NIGMS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Current approaches to medical education produce new physicians with insufficient clinical competency to practice effectively with limited supervision, which has serious implications for patient outcomes during hospitaloff hours. Up to 70% of patients admitted to a hospital are admitted on nights or weekends, when staffing is low and residents may be in charge o ...

  2. Automated Simulation of Selective Laser Melting Additive Manufacturing for Process Design

    SBC: SIMMETRIX INC.            Topic: 02a

    Additive Manufacturing (AM), where three-dimensional (3D) objects are created from a digital model by depositing and fusing successive layers of material, provides the ability to produce low-volume, customized products with complex geometries relatively quickly at a moderate cost. However, AM processes sometimes fail to produce acceptable parts, due to either geometric in- accuracy (e.g., shrinkag ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Quantifying Appropriate De-rating of SiC MOSFETs Subject to Cosmic Rays

    SBC: MONOLITH SEMICONDUCTOR INC            Topic: 11b

    In this phase-I proposal, the effect of terrestrial cosmic rays on the failure rate of commercial 1200V SiC power MOSFETs will be studied. The goal of the study is to quantify the appropriate breakdown voltage de-rating needed for SiC MOSFETs subject to cosmic rays. The failure rate of SiC power MOSFETs as a function of the reverse blocking voltage will be determined and compared to failure rate o ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
