  1. Parallel Two-Electron Reduced Density Matrix Based Electronic Structure Software for Highly Correlated Molecules and Materials

    SBC: RDMChem LLC            Topic: A14AT013

    Two-electron reduced-density-matrix (2-RDM) methods represent all of the electrons in any molecule or material with only two electrons by replacing the wave function by the 2-RDM as the basic variable for quantum many-electron theory. The 2-RDM methods, developed by David Mazziotti at The University of Chicago with support from the Army Research Office, have polynomial scaling with system size, al ...

  2. Mobile Military CO2 Refrigeration

    SBC: Creative Thermal Solutions, Inc.            Topic: A14054

    As an SBIR Phase I effort, CTS proposes to develop a mobile containerized cold-storage facility, using CO2 as a refrigerant, capable of conditioning 2/3rds of a 20' container to 38?F and 1/3rd of the container to -5?F at an ambient of 135?F, with a coefficient of performance (COP) greater than one. The refrigeration system will also have 30% reserve capacity at these conditions. The individu ...

  3. Integrated Computational System for Electrochemical Device Design and Simulation

    SBC: Illinoisrocstar, L.L.C.            Topic: Z104

    Illinois Rocstar LLC proposes to develop and demonstrate the use of an integrated computational environment and infrastructure for electrochemical device design and simulation: ICED. This environment integrates the user's personal computational environment with high performance simulation applications for materials and processes. The current state of the art for electrochemical device design utili ...

  4. High Power Betavoltaic Technology

    SBC: MicroLink Devices            Topic: Z2001

    The proposed innovation will dramatically improve the performance of tritium-powered betavoltaic batteries through the development of a high-aspect ratio, expanded surface area p/n junction composed of indium gallium phosphide. The enhanced surface area features will be built using reactive ion etch (RIE) modified germanium substrates via metalorganic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD). The propo ...

  5. Highly Conductive Polymer Electrolyte Impregnated 3d Li-Metal Negative Electrode

    SBC: Xerion Advanced Battery            Topic: Z102

    XABC (Xerion Advanced Battery Corp) proposes a novel anode with three unique features, each designed to 1) control or 2) prevent dendrite growth. The first feature is a 95% porous electrode architecture. This electrode is an open-cell, nanostructured conductive foam whose internal structures are conformal coated with lithium metal. Dendrites growing outward from an internal pore surface will propa ...

  6. High-Efficiency, Radiation-Hard, Lightweight IMM Solar Cells

    SBC: MicroLink Devices            Topic: S301

    Future NASA exploration missions require high specific power (>500 W/kg) solar arrays. To increase cell efficiency while reducing weight and maintaining structural integrity, we propose an approach to cell design that involves the use of quantum dots and epitaxial lift-off. In the near term, this approach will allow us to improve on what are currently the best space solar cells available in term ...

  7. High Energy Density Lithium Battery System with an Integrated Low Cost Heater Sub-System for Missions on Titan.

    SBC: AMERICAN ENERGY TECHNOLOGIES COMPANY            Topic: S303

    This Phase I SBIR project seeks to develop a 500 Wh/kg Lithium primary battery for intended application as the primary power source on landers and probes for future missions to Titan/Enceladus and near Earth asteroids. The proposed battery technology aims to offer a viable alternative to Li/SO2 primary batteries which were used in the most recent mission to Titan. A thorough analysis of power requ ...

  8. Low-Cost, Manufacturable, 6-Inch Wafer Bonding Process for Next-Generation 5-Junction IMM+Ge Photovoltaic Devices

    SBC: MicroLink Devices            Topic: Z101

    We propose the development of a 6-inch wafer bonding process to allow bonding of a multi-junction inverted metamorphic (IMM) tandem solar cell structure to an upright single-junction Ge solar cell. The process will use SU8 epoxy to provide the mechanical connection between the substrates with an embedded metallic grid to provide electrical conductivity across the bonded interface. This process w ...

  9. Advanced Thermal Interface Material Systems for Space Applications

    SBC: Applied Material Systems Engineering, Inc.(AMSENG)            Topic: S307

    The ultimate aim of proposed efforts are to develop innovative material and process (M&P) engineering technology to reduce thermal resistance between space power components and cold plates of the space system. This proposal will use AMSENG produced few layer graphene with carbon nano tubes (CNT) to design and process the Advances Thermal Interface Material Systems (ATIMS) to achieve the performanc ...

  10. Parallel Nonlinear Optimization for Astrodynamic Navigation

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: H904

    CU Aerospace proposes the development of a new parallel nonlinear program (NLP) solver software package. NLPs allow the solution of complex optimization problems, and there exist today a number of capable NLP solvers typically used within the astrodynamics community. Unfortunately, none of them take into account the capabilities of a high performance computer with thousands of processors, nor use ...
