  1. Development of a naNomaterial aNode for a low voltage proportional counter for neutron detection

    SBC: NanoTechLabs Inc.            Topic: 39h

    The objective of this technology transfer effort is to leverage technology developed at Savannah River National Laboratory (SRNL) to develop a portable proportional counter (PC) for neutron detection. NanoTechLabs Inc. (NTL) will develop a portable proportional counter for neutron detection utilizing nanostructured field emitters. Unlike traditional proportional counters, which are typically arran ...

  2. Ion Implantation Processes in AlN for Wide Bandgap Semiconductor Power Devices

    SBC: Adroit Materials            Topic: 02a

    Current and next-generation power systems require power devices that operate at high voltages and high frequencies beyond the reliable operating limit of the present silicon- and silicon carbide-based power devices. The material properties of AlN permit power devices to operate at these extremes, promoting device shrinkage for automotive applications as well faster switching and more efficient pow ...

  3. Methodology for Attrition Evaluation of Oxygen Carriers in Chemical Looping Systems

    SBC: ENVERGEX LLC            Topic: 11d

    This Small Business Innovation Research (STTR) project targets the development of novel methodology for the evaluation of a wide range of oxygen carriers, in particular, their attrition resistance, under conditions that broadly account for the process requirements of coal-based chemical looping systems. Existing test protocols and procedures for the evaluation of granular materials do not accurate ...

  4. Ionomer Dispersion Impact on Advanced Fuel Cell and Electrolyzer Performance and Durability

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 09b

    The ionomer dispersion technology invented at LANL has demonstrated great potential to significantly improve the lifetime of proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells via accelerated stress tests. However, more validation and improvements are needed to make this technology commercially viable for PEM fuel cell-based hydrogen vehicles. The overall project is to further improve and validate this ion ...

  5. Automated process for the fabrication of highly customized thermally insulated cladding systems

    SBC: Polycel Inc            Topic: 03b

    Adding thermal insulation to existing building envelopes can be an effective way of reducing building energy use. While most thermal insulation materials are affordable, the cost of installing thermal insulation into existing buildings can be expensive. Real facades are also characterized by many unique elements that affect their rated thermal performance, such as corners, windows, d ...

  6. New Class of Bright, Sharp, Tunable Near-Infrared Fluorophores for Flow Cyto

    SBC: Nirvana Sciences, Inc.            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Polychromatic flow cytometry [FC] is one of the most powerful analytical techniques routinely used in immunology. Flow cytometry plays a critical role in several growing clinical applications: leukemia and lymphoma immunophenotyping for diagnosis and sub-categorization (now using 8-10 colors); in CD4/CD8 measurement in HIV-positive patients; and in HLA typing f ...

  7. Development of small near-infrared laser system capable of improving immune respo

    SBC: SEMINEX CORPORATION            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The broad and long-term objective of this project is to amplify the effectiveness of vaccines without the use of chemical or biological adjuvants. We will address this objective by demonstrating the feasibility for small laser- based devices to enhance responses to intradermal vaccination. A number of investigators have shown that a promising new way to make va ...

  8. Therapeutic Utility of renalase and renalase peptides in cisplatin-mediated renal

    SBC: BESSOR PHARMA, LLC            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Cisplatin is a cornerstone therapy for a number of cancers including testicular, bladder, ovarian and lung. It is also used to treat cancers in children. In all cases there is a high incidence of acute kidney injury (AKI) that can also lead to later stage kidney damage. This risk limits its use. We have found in pilot studies that renalase, or peptide fragment ...

  9. DNP Polarization Agents for Real-Time Metabolic Imaging and Clinical Diagnosis

    SBC: DYNUPOL, INC.            Topic: NCI

    Project Summary / Abstract Although standard MRI techniques provide valuable structural insight, a related technique known as magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) adds powerful real-time metabolic information about the tissues under study. MRS provides early detection of disease, monitoring treatment efficacy, and, in the case of cancer, a dramatic reduction in unnecessary biopsies. However, bro ...

  10. Developing Inhibitors of the STARS/SRF Pathway for Treatment of Type 2 Diabetes

    SBC: Jenesis Biosciences LLC            Topic: NIDDK

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Type 2 diabetes (T2D) has reached epidemic proportions in the United States, affecting an estimated 8.3% of the population. Unfortunately, the majority of individuals with diabetes continue to have suboptimal control ofglucose, therefore new and improved approaches to prevention and treatment are sorely needed. Dr. Mary Elizabeth Patti's laboratory at the ...
