  1. Demonstration of the technological capability for production of neutron-focusing nickel mirrors

    SBC: ELECTROFORMED NICKEL, INC.            Topic: 08a

    Neutron scattering is one of the most useful methods of studying the structure and dynamics of matter. Therefore, a number of new large neutron facilities have recently being constructed, upgraded or planned around the world. Examples include the new, 1.4 billion-dollars Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) at DoE’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and upgrades of ORNL’s High-Flux Isotope React ...

  2. Automatic Calibration of High-Performance Metrological Instrumentation

    SBC: Abeam Technologies Inc.            Topic: 04c

    In this project, aBeam will further develop and commercialize the metrology application developed by scientists at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and supported by their patent. The product will improve the capabilities of high-performance metrological instrumentation. Our technology is the enabler of well characterized quantitative metrology at the nanoscale that does not exist thus far.

  3. Transition Metal Blocking Microporous Polymer Separators for Energy-Dense and Long-Lived Li-ion Batteries

    SBC: Sepion Technologies            Topic: 12a

    The advanced energy economy will be a dominant market force in the 21st century, one driven by US demand but asymmetrically low domestic supply without immediate action. This project focuses on the development and US manufacturing of a new battery membrane that enables low-cost and long-lived Li-ion batteries.

  4. Low-Cost Hybrid Plasmoni and Photonic "Campanile" Near-Field Probes by Nanoimprint Lithography

    SBC: Abeam Technologies 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 ...

  5. Enabling scientific discovery from complex data at extreme scales

    SBC: PREMINON, LLC            Topic: 01b

    Statistical machine learning has had substantial impacts on many business areas, including finance, supply chain management, cyber security, bioengineering, and elsewhere – it is the core of companies including Google, FaceBook, TrueCar, and many others. However, extant tools for predictive analytics provide little or no insight into underlying processes. Hence, while machine learning has inargu ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Vertical GaN Substrates

    SBC: Sixpoint Materials, Inc.            Topic: DEFOA0000941

    SixPoint Materials will create low-cost, high-quality vertical gallium nitride (GaN) substrates using a multi-phase production approach that employs both hydride vapor phase epitaxy (HVPE) technology and ammonothermal growth techniques to lower costs and maintain crystal quality. Substrates are thin wafers of semiconducting material needed for power devices. In its two-phase project, SixPoint Mate ...

  8. Novel Materials for Metal to Ceramic Transitions

    SBC: HiFunda, LLC            Topic: 15d

    HiFunda will develop a novel joining technology to enable integration of key technologies such as supercritical CO2 cycles that can significantly increase efficiencies and reduce power system size and cost. The technology platform developed will find application across a broad range of industrial sectors resulting in improved energy efficiency and economics for power systems based on coal and natu ...

  9. Neutron optical device to measure mesoscopic space and time correlations and eliminate quasi-elastic scattering from SANS

    SBC: ADELPHI TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: 08a

    A recent report by the Basic Energy Sciences Advisory Committee entitled “Challenges at the Frontiers of Matter and Energy” pointed to the need to better understand hierarchical and heterogeneous materials, often at the mesoscopic scale. Such structures can be studied by x-ray and neutron scattering techniques, but they do not generally yield narrow signals in momentum or energy space. The nat ...

  10. Ultrafast infrared chemical nano-scope: Femtosecond spatio-temporal nanoimaging and spectroscopy

    SBC: Anasys Instruments Corp.            Topic: 12a

    Anasys Instruments in collaboration with Markus Raschke (University of Colorado, Boulder) propose to jointly develop a new ultrafast infrared and optical scanning probe nano-scope, based on scattering scanning near-field optical microscopy (s-SNOM), that provides both spatio-spectral and spatio-temporal nano-imaging. Nanoscale heterogeneity defines properties and performance in many functional mat ...
