  1. 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 ...

  2. A Diagnostic for Simultaneous Liquid and Vapor Distribution in Sprays Using Filtered Rayleigh and Mie Scattering

    SBC: Metrolaser, Inc.            Topic: 07d

    New automotive engine technologies, such as direct injection with stratified charge combustion, are being explored under programs of the DOE and others that offer significant increases in efficiency and reductions in emissions. Research tools are needed to help determine how best to adequately control the combustion process throughout the engine operating envelope, to optimize combustion efficienc ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Automatic Calibration of High-Performance Metrological Instrumentation

    SBC: Abeam Technologies Inc.            Topic: 04c

    Metrology is a multi-billion dollar industry that is an indispensable part of science and manufacturing. A variety of techniques including interferometric microscopes, scanning electron microscopes (SEM), X-ray, and atomic force microscopes (AFM) are used in X-ray mirror manufacturing. The performance of any tool directly depends on the ability to characterize and tune it ...

  8. Comprehensive Time-Resolved Molecular Speciation Of Gaseous And Particulate Organic Constituents In The Atmosphere

    SBC: Aerosol Dynamics Inc.            Topic: 17d

    Organic chemicals comprise the dominant fraction of particulates found in atmospheric aerosols, and the largest proportions of these are secondary products formed in the atmosphere from oxidation of volatile organic compounds. Often these chemical transformations result from complex pathways involving species from different sources. To understand these processes, we need to be able to trace the ...

  9. Development of Nuclear Quality Components Using Metal Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: RadiaBeam Systems, LLC            Topic: 19f

    A major problem with nuclear fission reactors is the welding of components of dissimilar metals, where the filler is usually of an additional metal alloy that is not necessarily the same as the two parts to be joined. Welding of metals will often have a heat affected zone (HAZ) and a thermo- mechanically affected zone (TMAZ), which need to be post-weld heat treated to minimize precipitation or seg ...

  10. Development of Spectroelectrochemical Technetium Sensor for Groundwater Monitoring

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: 20b

    The remediation of underground nuclear waste storage tanks and associated disposal cribs and trenches at the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) nuclear waste storage facilities, together with the associated needs to characterize and monitor the chemical compositions of the contaminants, presents a major scientific challenge. Several of these storage tanks are leaking, and significant quantities of w ...
