  1. Expanding Access to Electronic Property Modeling in Scintillator Crystal Growth and Development

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 03a

    The development of radiation detection materials would benefit with greater access to computational models that relate physical traits seen in manufacture with complex energy transitions occurring in the material that control operating performance. However, the HPC requirements behind these models remain beyond the reach of most businesses involved in this small yet vital field impacting National ...

  2. High Power Ceramic Disk Lasers with Gradient Doping Made by Direct Ink Writing

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 25c

    The power output of the high power lasers used in physics research is limited by the materials available for making the gain media in the laser. Future increases in power will require new and better materials. Operation at high power creates great thermal stresses that can lead to effects such as birefringence, thermal lensing or even physical fracture damage to the host itself. Effective cooling ...

  3. Supercritical Treatment Technology for Water Purification

    SBC: ENVERGEX LLC            Topic: 20a

    Wastewater from oil and gas production has high total dissolved solids (TDS) and organics and needs to be treated for safe disposal or reuse. Coal-fired power plant discharges and mining effluents share similar high TDS and organic contents. This project targets the development of an energy efficient, and robust supercritical desalination technology to treat hypersaline solutions, destroying organ ...

  4. 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 ...

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

    SBC: STAR CRYOELECTRONICS LLC            Topic: 28f

    The next generation of cosmic microwave background experiments aim to provide definitive measurements of the early universe by employing large focal plane arrays with ~100,000 superconducting detectors operating at low temperatures ~0.1 K. This creates a requirement for cryogenic cooling systems that are reliable and cryogen-free, and that offer high cooling power, multiple thermal intercepts, and ...

  6. Coversion of waste water treatment plant fats oils and greases "brown grease" into bio diesel using supercitical fluids and robust catalyst processes./ Same as LOI on headers

    SBC: CF Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 10

    The Department of Energy has a mission to ensure America's prosperity and security by addressing energy and environmental challenges. This Phase I project aims to produce domestic, economic and environmentally responsible biodiesel fuel from brown grease, a waste that is currently disposed in landfills or incinerated. The conversion of "brown grease" from wastewater treatment plant’s fats oils a ...

  7. Epitaxial GaN on Flexible Metal Tapes for Low-Cost Transistor Devices

    SBC: IBEAM MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: DEFOA0000941

    GaN-based devices are the basis of a variety of modern electronics applications, especially in optoelectronics and high-frequency / high-power electronics. These devices are based on epitaxial films grown on single-crystal wafers. The single-crystal wafer substrates are limiting because of their size, expense, mechanical properties and availability. If one could make GaN-based devices over large a ...

  8. Mitigation of Aerosol Emissions from Solvent-based Post-Combustion CO2 Capture Systems

    SBC: ENVERGEX LLC            Topic: 18

    Reactive absorption-based carbon dioxide capture processes using solvents is the preferred technology for large scale capture of carbon dioxide in flue gases from coal-fired power plants. This Small Business Innovation Research project targets the development of mitigation strategies to decrease the quantity of aerosols that are formed from such post-combustion capture systems in the presence of s ...

  9. Spouted Fluid Beds for Chemical Looping Combustion/Gasification

    SBC: ENVERGEX LLC            Topic: 15a

    This SBIR/STTR project targets the development of a validated modeling/design tool for predicting the behavior of spouted fluidizied beds for chemical looping combustion/gasification applications of coal and biomass fuels and fuel blends. Chemical looping is an advanced energy conversion technology for generating a pure CO2 effluent, which can then be sequestered or utilized. A spouted fluidized b ...

  10. High Charge Density Hydrocarbon-Based PEMs

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 12c

    Despite incremental improvements in the technology, polyfluorosulfonic acid (PFSA) membranes are still not an ideal fuel cell membrane material and their drawbacks (e.g., high cost and low mechanical strength at high temperature) require development of alternative polymer electrolyte membranes (PEMs) for successful adoption of fuel cells as reliable and inexpensive energy conversion devices. The g ...
