  1. Predictive Analytics-Based US Inland Waterways Voyage Planning Analysis Tool (VSAT)

    SBC: Trabus            Topic: 01a

    Trabus Technologies (TRABUS), working with Louisiana State University (LSU), will develop a predictive analytics-based US Inland Waterways Voyage Planning Analysis tool to help vessel traffic managers, tow boat pilots, and river lock operators maximize transport logistic resources. This tool will use current and forecasted hydrographic, meteorological, lock status, and Marine Safety Information to ...

  2. User Location-Specific Data for Smarter Smart Grids

    SBC: ERIK PAGE & ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: 06b

    Society at large and DOE in particular have an interest in the continued development and refinement of a smart grid infrastructure that more efficiently and reliably matches electrical resources to demands. While technological advances in recent years have improved the smart grid, these advances have been limited by a lack of granularity of data (e.g. environmental conditions at multiple locations ...

  3. 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 ...

  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 constants 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 n ...

  5. Axisymmetric and Focusing Analyzers to Enable Efficient Powder and Residual Stress Neutron Diffractometers

    SBC: ADELPHI TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: 12a

    Although thermal and cold neutron scattering is widely used, and is critical for success in many areas of materials science and engineering, relatively low neutron fluxes severely limit applications of not only laboratory neutrons generators, but also large national neutron facilities. State-of-the-art thermal and cold neutron sources are large expensive national facilities, which serve diverse co ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Novel isotope sensor for spatially-resolved analysis of nutrient exchange in the rhizosphere Topic: 22.a. Technologies for Characterizing the Rhizosphere: Plant-Microbe-Mineral Interactions

    SBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 22a

    Ensuring adequate agricultural productivity in the face of an increasing human population is a major concern with implications for both production of bioenergy products (Jones and Hinsinger, 2008) and global food security. Increasing agricultural productivity requires a stronger understanding of soil biogeochemical processes that impact plant nutrient availability. We propose development of an inn ...

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

    SBC: HANDIX SCIENTIFIC Inc.            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 ...

  10. Low-cost, time-resolved chemical characterization of atmospheric aerosols

    SBC: Aerosol Devices Inc.            Topic: 23b

    Currently the chemical composition of atmospheric particulate matter is measured either by off-line analyses of time-integrated filter samples, or by in-situ instruments requiring near-constant operator oversight. These measurement approaches result in sparse or limited data coverage. Despite the critical role of composition on the health and environmental impacts of particulate matter, there exis ...
