  1. Portable nitrous oxide sensor for understanding agricultural and soil emissions

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 18c

    Nitrous oxide is the third most important greenhouse gas (GHG,) with an atmospheric lifetime of ~114 years and a global warming impact ~300 times greater than that of CO2. The main cause of nitrous oxide’s atmospheric increase is anthropogenic emissions, and over 80% of the current global anthropogenic flux is related to agriculture, including associated land-use change. An accurate assessment o ...

  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. Improved Manufacturing Methods for Compositionally Gradient Layered Nickel-Rich NMC Cathode Materials Using a Combined Spray Pyrolysis and Fluidized-Bed Reactor

    SBC: HAZEN RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: 14a

    Development of superior Li-ion batteries (LIBs) is a critical part of the US Department of Energy’s (DOE) mission to improve the economic, social, and environmental sustainability of electric vehicles (EV). This mission, “EV Everywhere Grand Challenge” seeks to reduce the cost of the EV batteries from the current more than $250/kWh to less than $125/kWh by 2022. To achieve this goal, the mat ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Continuous Adiabatic Demagnetization Refrigerator for Large Arrays of Superconducting Bolometers

    SBC: STAR CRYOELECTRONICS LLC            Topic: 28f

    A recent report of the 25-member Particle Physics Project Prioritization Panel (P5) recommends funding cosmic microwave background (CMB) experiments under all budget scenarios, specifically, the next- generation ground-based CMB experimental program whose aim is to provide definitive measurements of the early universe. For this program, large focal plane arrays with ~100,000 superconducting detect ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Optical pressure measurement in micro-fractures

    SBC: Kaia Corp.            Topic: 17e

    Project Summary/Abstract: For reservoir development and management in the highly flow- restrictive shales of today’s unconventional reservoirs, the oil and gas industry needs to quantify oil flow characteristics. With production, reservoirs characteristics change while the data from flow tests of cores captured during drilling give very imprecise and inaccurate data only about initial reservoir ...
