  1. Optimization of nanosecond transient plasma ignition for clean combustion

    SBC: Transient Plasma Systems, Inc.            Topic: 22c

    Low-temperature plasmas generated by nanosecond electrical pulses, also referred to as transient plasmas, can be used to significantly improve fuel efficiency and reduce emissions by enabling stable ignition in gasoline and natural gas engines in dilute conditions (e.g. applications such as methane capture, where methane is captured from landfills and burned to produce electricity) as well as thro ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Robust Molecular Predictive Methods for Novel Polymer Discovery and Applications

    SBC: Sheeta Global Tech Corp.            Topic: 08b

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) program aims at development and demonstration of an integrated theoretically/experimentally combinatorial method for the accurate prediction of rheological behaviors of special polymer solutions. In-depth understandings of dynamic responses of the polymer solutions under external shear are essential for development of the “smart” polymer-based add ...

  4. Klystron Fabrication Using Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: Calabazas Creek Research, Inc.            Topic: 24c

    The cost of high power RF sources exceeds available funding for several large accelerator systems. The ILC, for example, will require more than 700 multiple beam klystrons. The complexity of the klystron currently requires hundreds of individually machined parts, in addition to tens of bonding processes. The high cost is preventing construction of new accelerator systems. Calabazas Creek Research ...

  5. Robust, Efficient Medical Linear Accelerator System

    SBC: RadiaBeam Systems, LLC            Topic: 08b

    Radiation therapy is used to treat over 60% of cancer patients and is used in nearly half of the curative cases, however, in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC), there is a large underserved population, with technology per capita 2 or more orders of magnitude lower than in the US. Many LMIC still utilize outdated Cobalt-60 machines, which result in excessive normal tissue dose, present safety ...

  6. Use of Fiber Optic Distributed Acoustic Sensing for Measuring Hydraulic Connectivity for Geothermal Applications

    SBC: GeoMechanics Technologies            Topic: 17b

    Advanced methods in reservoir characterization are required to effectively harness geothermal energy from fractured high-temperature, high-pressure crystalline rock. It is critically important to determine sufficient fluid connection between injection and production wells to enhance sweep efficiency and optimize the lifetime of the reservoir. Measuring hydraulic pressure changes in offset wells in ...

  7. Low Cost Alloys for Magnetocaloric Refrigeration

    SBC: GENERAL ENGINEERING & RESEARCH, L.L.C.            Topic: 12b

    Replacement of petroleum based vehicles with fuel cell electric vehicles operating on hydrogen produced from domestically available resources would dramatically decrease emissions of greenhouse gases and other pollutants as well as reduce dependence on oil from politically volatile regions of the world. One major inhibitor to a hydrogen society is the lack of infrastructure, which requires hydroge ...

  8. 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.

  9. Transition Metal Blocking Microporous Polymer Separators for Energy-Dense and Long-Lived Li-ion Batteries

    SBC: Sepion Technologies            Topic: 12a

    The advanced energy economy will be a dominant market force in the 21st century, one driven by US demand but asymmetrically low domestic supply without immediate action. This project focuses on the development and US manufacturing of a new battery membrane that enables low-cost and long-lived Li-ion batteries.

  10. Low-Cost Hybrid Plasmoni and Photonic "Campanile" Near-Field Probes by Nanoimprint Lithography

    SBC: Abeam Technologies Inc.            Topic: 07a

    Near-field scanning optical microscopy (NSOM) is a powerful and unique approach to characterize the chemical, physical and potentially biochemical properties of materials with the nanometer scale resolution in real-time. A key element for NSOM systems that combine optical spectroscopy with scanning probe microscopy, is the actual probe itself. While many commercial vendors offer off-the-shelf meta ...
