  1. The Nuclear Energy Modeling System (NEMoSys)

    SBC: Illinoisrocstar, L.L.C.            Topic: 30

    Over the past decade, the use of multiphysics simulation – combining tools covering multiple physics disciplines together to generate advanced predictive codes – has surged as available computational power has grown. Many of these tools use “meshes” or “grids” to discretize their problem domains, and often, data must be transfered from one grid to another many times during a simulation ...

  4. Radiation-Hardened, High-Data-Rate Fiber-Optic Receivers for High-Energy Physics

    SBC: VEGA WAVE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 28

    Future particle physics experiments at the high-energy frontier such as the High-Luminosity Large Hadron Collider, (HL-LHC), International Linear Collider (ILC), or Multi-TeV Muon Collider, will all require silicon detectors capable of reconstructing charged particle trajectories with high accuracy in the presence of extremely high luminosity (1035/cm2/sec in the case of the HL-LHC). The large amo ...

  5. High-Radiation-Tolerant Vision System for Nuclear Energy

    SBC: VEGA WAVE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 30

    Improvements and advances are needed in the technical area of vision system technologies for high-radiation environments, specifically in the operation and remote handling of equipment in nuclear reactor inspection applications. Currently, visual inspection systems for Nuclear Energy applications are extremely limited. Commercially available vision systems are not radiation- tolerant at the level ...

  6. Large-Format, High-Throughput Photon-Counting Imager

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 07

    Low-cost, power-efficient, time-resolved imaging is increasingly important for DOE remote sensing operations. While large-area CMOS and CCD visible imagers and high-resolution thermal imagers now provide excellent images, these technologies do not have the temporal resolution to detect and track transient events, such as lasers, muzzle flashes, or other energetic events. Needed are imagers that ha ...

  7. Development of a robust in-vacuo and in-situ plasma-material interface (PMI) diagnostic elucidating plasma boundary-core confinement performance

    SBC: Energy Driven Technologies, LLC            Topic: 21

    Nuclear fusion is one of humanity’s grand challenges offering a non-fossil fuel, green energy source that is inherently safe and clean. There is a critical knowledge gap in fusion energy development on how the plasma-material interface correlates to plasma performance. Driving this gap is a lack of robust, in-situ and in-process diagnostics that can measure how the composition and structure of p ...

  8. Integrating optimization methods into simulation workflows for advanced product engineering and manufacturing

    SBC: Parallel.Works LLC            Topic: 02a

    In designing virtually every type of product from simple parts like toothpaste or turbine blades to complex systems such as skyscrapers and jetliners, modeling and simulation play an increasingly vital role in product quality, time to market, and cost reduction. Product design and manufacturing engineers often explore vast spaces of design parameters and component interactions using computational ...

  9. High-Data-Rate, Short-Range Optical Links for Advanced Scientific Computing

    SBC: VEGA WAVE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 01b

    Optical data links operating at rates in excess of 100Gbps are needed to support the transfer of massive amounts of data over advanced scientific computing networks. Scientific instruments and supercomputing facilities are expected to generate petabytes of data per day. These systems are in the process of being scaled to support extreme-scale computational science applications. High-speed optical ...

  10. The Chemlab Chemistry and Materials Science Lifecycle Data Repository

    SBC: Illinoisrocstar, L.L.C.            Topic: 09a

    Creation of national web–enabled infrastructure for predictive theory and modeling is needed to facilitate the coordination and sharing of information and data, scalable codes, and for their implementation on or transfer to new architectures. In addition, a web–based infrastructure is needed to impose universal standards for data inputs and outputs in the multitude of codes and methodologies o ...
