  1. CORC; Cable Based High Field Hybrid Magnets for Future Colliders

    SBC: Advanced Conductor Technologies LLC            Topic: 26b

    "The next generation of very high field accelerator magnets (20 T or more) are expected to be made with high-temperature superconductors (HTS) along with conventional low-temperature superconductors (LTS) to reduce cost. The operation and protection of these magnets becomes very challenging particularly if the HTS coils are made with the tapes and operate at a much lower current than the LTS coils ...

  2. Scaleup of a Combined Spray Pyrolysis and Fluidized-bed Reactor Method for the Production of High Performing Layered Nickel- rich Cathode Materials as a Continuous Process

    SBC: HAZEN RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: 14a

    To increase the utilization of electric vehicles, the US Department of Energy is seeking to reduce the cost of electric vehicle batteries to less than $125/kWh by 2022. To achieve this goal, the costs of cathode materials, which account for approximately 30% of the cost of vehicle batteries, must be reduced significantly. To address the challenge of lowering the costs of advanced lithium battery c ...

  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. Low-cost and Flexible Transparent Electrodes Based on Ag–ZTOF (Zn–Sn–O–F) Amorphous Composites Through Ink-jet Printing

    SBC: HAZEN RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: 09b

    Sn-doped In2O3 (ITO) is the industry standard and most widely used transparent conducting electrode (TCE) because of its good electrical and optical properties. However, ITO has a number of disadvantages: ITO is not a suitable TCE for next-generation, high-efficiency, flexible OLEDs, because of its inappropriate work function, difficulty in creating desired patterns, low stability, delaminantion d ...

  5. Very High Field Hybrid Superconducting Magnet Using Bi-2212

    SBC: Cryomagnetics, Inc.            Topic: 26b

    Hig e and advanced materials are continually demanding higher magnetic fields. Efforts to generate fields in excess of 25 Tesla have been a principal driver of high temperature superconductor research. Although HTS materials were discovered decades ago and have always shown significant potential for high field use, until recently magnets using the technology have remained elusive. Great progress h ...

  6. High Quantum Efficiency Uni-Traveling-Carrier Photodiode for Optical to Microwave Transduction

    SBC: Freedom Photonics LLC            Topic: 29d

    Modern quantum information systems employ optical photons for long distance communication, operating at ambient temperature, between microwave cavities, which house microwave photons used in quantum computing and microwave detection. These optical photons, carried by fiber-optic or free-space links, offer a low-cost, uncooled alternative to bulky, expensive microwave coaxial cables, which are loss ...

  7. Development of breeding strategies for Nitzschia sp.

    SBC: GLOBAL ALGAE INNOVATIONS, INC.            Topic: 08c

    Renewable algae fuels are the source of energy for the future. It was demonstrated that algae fuels can be produced and they were successfully used in demonstration airplane flights and cars. The cost of algae oil is still high and cannot compete with fossil fuels. High algae growth and ability to accumulate oil fast are the key factors that will make algae based biofuels affordable. Diatoms are t ...

  8. Development of a breeding system in Chlamydomonas moewusii for improved production strains

    SBC: GLOBAL ALGAE INNOVATIONS, INC.            Topic: 08c

    For economically viable large-scale production of microalgae based food and biofuel to become a reality, significant improvements in algal productivity need to be achieved. With current regulatory guidelines, large scale outdoor cultivation of microalgae for these products restricts the use of transgenic algal strains, which in the laboratory, have thus far been the primary strategy taken to effec ...

  9. A Concrete Additive Manufacturing Process for Fixed and Floating Wind Turbine Foundations and Towers

    SBC: JC Solutions            Topic: 14b

    Tall towers and foundations for modern offshore and land-based wind turbines are too large to transport over roads or rail due to their extremely large dimensions. Existing “one-off” on-site construction methods are too expensive, and are too slow for manufacturing foundations and towers in the large numbers needed, especially for offshore components manufactured in ports with limited lay-down ...

  10. Domestication of the microalga Scenedesmus obliquus for biomass feedstock production

    SBC: Microbio Engineering, Inc            Topic: 08c

    To advance a strong and economical biofuels and bioproducts industry, tools are needed for breeding microalgae to improve phenotypes of commercial interest, including biomass yield, culture stability, harvestability, and accumulation of valuable compounds. This project aims to increase biomass feedstock yields by the phototrophic green alga Scenedesmus obliquus by using classical breeding approach ...
