  1. Development of a Reliable, Low-Cost and User-Friendly Spot Test Kit for Leaded Paint and Dust Based on Recent Advances in Bionanotechnology

    SBC: ANDALYZE, INC.            Topic: 05NCERD9

    Lead in household paint and dust is a serious health hazard, as low-level lead exposure can result in a number of adverse health effects, especially in children. Onsite and real-time detection and quantification of lead in paint/dust are very important to homeowners and certified lead-based paint removal professionals. Toward this end, both field-portable equipment (such as X-ray fluorescenc ...

  3. Sensitive X-Ray Fluorescence Detection for Higher Energies

    SBC: HD TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 25

    X-ray fluorescence detection at intense synchrotron sources, used at DOE facilities for materials science research, is limited by the count rate of the solid state detectors. This project will develop a multilayer-analyzer array detector with high count rate, superb energy resolution, and fast time response. Utilizing diffraction from graded multilayers, the selection of energy photons will be a ...

  4. Experimental Validation of Critical Radiation Exposed Materials for RIA Fragmentation Target System

    SBC: I.C. Gomes Consulting & Investment Inc.            Topic: 49

    Important components within the fragmentation target system of the Rare Isotope Accelerator (RIA) ¿ e.g., the permanent magnets of the EM pump of the liquid lithium target loop and the high temperature superconductor (HTS) windings of the superconducting magnets of the fragment separator ¿ are subject to performance degradation by radiation. However, no data exists concerning the performance o ...

  5. Development and Demonstration of 6-Dimensional Muon Beam Cooling

    SBC: MUONS INC            Topic: 38

    Ionization cooling, a method for shrinking the size of a particle beam, is an essential technique for future particle accelerators that use muons, such as muon colliders and neutrino factories. This proposal will develop an ionization-cooling channel based on helical and solenoidal magnets in a novel configuration. A Helical Cooling Channel (HCC) experiment will be designed, using simulations an ...

  6. Particle Tracking in Matter-Dominated Beam Lines

    SBC: MUONS INC            Topic: 38

    Most computer programs that calculate the trajectories of particles in an accelerator assume that the particles travel in an evacuated chamber. This assumption does not work for muon beams (needed for muon colliders and neutrino factories), which usually are required to pass through matter. Consequently, the trajectory calculation is limited by the lack of user-friendly numerical simulation code ...

  7. H2 Production from Coal, Using Syn-Gas Depolarized Steam Electronics Membranes

    SBC: Rbr@vision            Topic: 33

    The production of hydrogen, especially pure hydrogen, from fossil fuels and other organic sources is undesirably costly, and purifying the hydrogen is a major cost element. Low-cost durable membranes, with functionality to carry out the water-gas shift reaction, could reduce the cost of coal gasification plants by 25% or more. This project will establish mixed oxide-ion and electron-conducting m ...

  8. Rational Design and Synthesis of Novel Microporous Materials for Hydrogen Storage

    SBC: TechDrive, Inc.            Topic: 28

    The availability of an efficient fuel-cell-based automobile, running on renewable hydrogen, would improve the environment by dramatically reducing air pollutants, while also diminishing the U.S. dependence on imported petroleum. However, there is a critical need to develop a safe hydrogen storage technology before fuel-cell-based automobiles can compete effectively with gasoline-powered vehicles. ...

  9. Enabling Managed Data Collaborations for eScience and eBusiness

    SBC: Univa Corporation            Topic: 43

    A number of scientific collaborations funded by the DOE need to process an ever increasing volume of data. In the past, the primary challenge for these data intensive experiments was to move large data sets quickly from one place to another. With the adoption of grid standards, this challenge has been addressed. Today's challenge is to manage data collaboration, replication, and dissemination, ...

  10. Biosolvents for Coatings, Resins and Biobased Materials

    SBC: Vertec Biosolvents, Inc.            Topic: 30

    Biologically-based products derived from renewable resources have the potential to replace products based on petrochemical feedstock, as well as to reduce the emission of hazardous pollutants. However, in order to penetrate large markets and overcome the entrenched barriers to change, the bio-based products must provide superior performance and economics along with the environmental benefits. Th ...
