  1. A Fast Neutron Source for Material Irradiation using a Superconducting Electron Linac

    SBC: Niowave, Inc.            Topic: 16d

    Next generation reactor R&D aims to produce safer, longer lasting and economically viable nuclear power plants. New designs rely on novel materials that are resistant to both corrosive environments and radiation damage. Testing these novel materials requires an intense fast neutron environment, commonly created with a nuclear reactor or a national laboratory scale accelerator such as the proposed ...

  3. A Subcritical Testbed for Fast Neutron Irradiation of Novel Fuels and Cladding in Fast Reactors

    SBC: Niowave, Inc.            Topic: 26c

    Next generation reactor R&D aims to improve overall safety, efficiency, sustainability, and proliferation resistance for economically viable nuclear energy. New reactor design and fuel development rely on novel materials that are resistant to both radiation damage and corrosive environments. However, American nuclear fuel developers face a serious dilemma: there are no existing domestic fast react ...

  5. Automatic Calibration of High-Performance Metrological Instrumentation

    SBC: Abeam Technologies Inc.            Topic: 04c

    In this project, aBeam will further develop and commercialize the metrology application developed by scientists at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and supported by their patent. The product will improve the capabilities of high-performance metrological instrumentation. Our technology is the enabler of well characterized quantitative metrology at the nanoscale that does not exist thus far.

  6. 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 ...

  7. Compact Laser Drivers for Photoconductive Semicond

    SBC: Scientific Applications & Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: DTRA16A004

    For effective protection against radiated threats, it is important to understand not only the physics of the threats, but also to quantify the effects they have on mission-critical electrical systems. Radiated vulnerability and susceptibility testing requires delivery of high peak power and peak electric fields to distant targets. The most practical solution to simulate such environments on large ...

  8. Deep Burn Fuels for Advanced Small Modular Reactors

    SBC: Ultramet            Topic: 29b

    New fuel forms are needed to enable gas-cooled fast fission reactors to operate using a once-through deep burn fuel cycle. These small, modular reactors will have a core life of 30 years and will burn the plutonium-239 that is created in the core as well as other transuranics. Deep burn rapidly and effectively reduces the inventory of transuranics from spent fuel without the need for repeated recy ...

  9. Demonstration of the technological capability for production of neutron-focusing nickel mirrors

    SBC: ELECTROFORMED NICKEL, INC.            Topic: 08a

    Neutron scattering is one of the most useful methods of studying the structure and dynamics of matter. Therefore, a number of new large neutron facilities have recently being constructed, upgraded or planned around the world. Examples include the new, 1.4 billion-dollars Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) at DoE’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and upgrades of ORNL’s High-Flux Isotope React ...

  10. Demonstration of the technological capability for production of neutron-focusing nickel mirrors

    SBC: ELECTROFORMED NICKEL, INC.            Topic: 15a

    Neutron scattering is one of the most useful methods of studying the structure and dynamics of matter. These methods require large installations at national laboratories, such as Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and other facilities constructed or planned in the US and around the world. These facilities serve a large and diverse community ...
