  1. Retrofittable and Transparent Super-Insulator for Single-Pane Windows

    SBC: NANOSD, INC.            Topic: DEFOA0001429

    NanoSD, Inc. with its partners will develop a transparent, nanostructured thermally insulating film that can be applied to existing single-pane windows to reduce heat loss. To produce the nanostructured film, the team will create hollow ceramic or polymer nanobubbles and consolidate them into a dense lattice structure using heat and compression. Because it is mostly air, the resulting nanobubble s ...

  2. A Comprehensive Web Infrastructure for Standardizing, Storing, and Launching Density Functional Calculations of Materials and Chemical Compounds

    SBC: Citrine Informatics, Inc.            Topic: 9a

    Density functional theory is used by many researchers funded by the Department of Energy as a method for predicting the behavior of chemicals and materials used in energy applications. However, results of these calculations are often not standardized and, even when they are, expert-level understand of the methods is needed in order to properly perform a simulation. The energy research community a ...

  3. Algal Bioflocculation for SolidLiquid Separation

    SBC: Microbio Engineering, Inc            Topic: 12c

    A key requirement for microalgae biofuels production is a very low cost harvesting technology. Commercially available solidliquid separation technologies applicable to microalgae, such as chemical coagulation, membrane separations and centrifugation, are too costly for biofuels production or other lowcost microalgae processes, such as wastewater treatment. A low cost harvesting process is bio floc ...

  4. Nano-Patterned Cathode Surfaces for High Efficiency Photoinjectors

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: 05a

    Metal photoinjector cathode development has shown recent promise with nano-patterning technology. However, in order to be competitive with semi-conductor cathodes, a further enhancement in efficiency is needed. TECHNICAL APPROACH Specific nano-patterning of sub-wavelength features to produce antennae provides coupling of incoming laser light with the surface of the metal cathode. Bowtie nano-anten ...

  5. Single-shot Picosecond Temporal Resolution Transmission Electron Microscopy

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: 07a

    Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) is one of the primary tools for biological and materials characterization and has many important research applications. There is an overarching need to improve the temporal resolution of TEMs. State-­‐of-­‐the-­‐art single shot TEM only achieve 10 nanoseconds temporal resolution. Technical Approach UCLA and RadiaBeam Tec ...

  6. 26(a): High Duty Cycle Inverse Free Electron Laser

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: 26a

    Laser based advanced accelerators can achieve very high accelerating gradients, but their duty cycle is limited by the laser power availability and media recovery time. Inverse Free Electron Laser (IFEL) is a vacuum farfield laser accelerator scheme which does not rely on a medium (plasma) or a structure (metal or electric) and therefore is potentially capable of accelerating charged particles ver ...

  7. Organic-Inorganic Hybrid Nanocomposite as Radiation-resistant Electrical Insulator

    SBC: Innosense Llc            Topic: 20

    The Department of Energy needs improved radiation resistant electrical insulation materials for the superconducting magnet coils in fusion reactors. To achieve safe, reliable, economic and environmentally benign fusion energy system, DOE is seeking organic/inorganic insulation-capable materials that are wrappable. These materials under irradiation will enable magnet coils to: (1) operate reliably ...

  8. High power, magnet-free, circulator using angular-momentum biasing of a resonant ring

    SBC: Calabazas Creek Research, Inc.            Topic: 25

    There is a continuing need for high power circulators to protect the next generation of high power RF sources from waveguide reflections that can destroy the device. Currently, the power level of circulators is limited by the materials, specifically ferrites that provide the required non-reciprocal operation. New approaches are required that use materials capable of very high power operation. Stat ...

  9. Membranes and Materials for Energy Efficiency- Subtopic d) Other. Title: Polysulfide-Blocking Polymer Membrane Separators for Rechargeable Lithium-Sulfur Batteries

    SBC: Sepion Technologies            Topic: 12a

    Renewable sources of energy including solar and wind are fast gaining ground on fossil fuels, in part because of their sustainability and environmental benefits. A major issue, however, has been finding efficient ways to store the energy that renewables generate for use when the demand for energy is high. Lithium-­‐sulfur batteries, which store electrical energy by transferring electrons to or ...

  10. Development of Low Cost Magnetocaloric Nanomaterials for Sub 80oK Refrigeration Applications

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

    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 ...
