  1. Quench Detection Method for Large Superconducting Magnets using Robust MEMS Acoustic Sensor Arrays

    SBC: Tanner Research, Inc.            Topic: 23c

    High Temperature Superconducting (HTS) materials have excellent mechanical and electrical properties that are attractive for various applications such as power cables and high field, high current superconducting magnets, particularly playing a key role in the commercialization of fusion energy machines. However, HTS materials have very slow normal zone propagation velocities (NZPV) (2-3 orders of ...

  2. Interference Coatings for High Energy and Average Power Femtosecond-class Lasers in the 0.8-2um Wavelength Range

    SBC: XUV Lasers, Inc.            Topic: 28e

    The problem/situation that is being addressed concerns the development of ultrafast coatings that will meet the specifications of the DoE solicitation: “broad-bandwidth, laser damage threshold of 0.5 J/cm2 (1 ps), engineered using a process that is scalable to large areas.” Development of interference coatings (ICs) with superior laser damage is strongly motivated by the needs to scale near in ...

  3. Key Components for the Implementation of High Repetition Rate Petawatt-class Lasers

    SBC: XUV Lasers, Inc.            Topic: 25c

    Ultra-high power, ultrashort pulse lasers systems are the central tool driving many of the recent advances in high energy density plasma science. They enable the generation of high energy density relativistic plasmas, bright x-ray and gamma–ray bursts, energetics particle beams and neutrons, and drive applications such as shadowgraphy of inertial confinement fusion targets and fast ignition. How ...

  4. Infinitely Recyclable Bioplastics

    SBC: SusMer, Inc            Topic: 08b

    Plastics are indispensable materials for modern life and the global economy, but current practices in the generation, use, and disposal of commodity plastics are largely unsustainable, causing severe worldwide plastics pollution and enormous energy and materials value loss in the economy. In particular, plastics are a material of choice in packaging applications, but they are currently designed fo ...

  6. Low-Cost Hybrid Plasmonic and Photonic "Campanile" Near-Field Probes by Nanoimprint Lithography

    SBC: HighRI Optics, 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 ...

  9. NOVEL POLYMER-ELECTROLYTE MEMBRANE DEVELOPMENT FOR CARBON DIOXIDE CONVERSION TO SOLAR FUEL

    SBC: Opus 12 Incorporated            Topic: 19b

    Solar fuels production is necessary for the future of the global economy. To produce solar fuels from CO2, a highly conductive and stable polymer-electrolyte is needed for this demanding application. A promising class of polymer-electrolytes for electrochemical energy applications has been developed, and this project’s goal is to scale-up production, add quality controls, and reduce waste. The n ...
