  1. Development of Low Temperature Microplasma Lamps for Biomedical Applications

    SBC: EDEN PARK ILLUMINATION, INC.            Topic: 25a

    There is a present and growing emphasis on reducing or maintaining the wateruse footprint in the energy sector. One of the requirements for effectively managing water is monitoring through reliable, realtime, measurementbased data of water quality/composition within treatment systems and bodies of water associated with power generation facilities. Many existing water quality sensor technologies ar ...

  2. Development of Designs, Processes and Technology for 200mm Silicon Sensors

    SBC: Nhanced Semiconductors, Inc.            Topic: 30f

    Siliconbased detectors are central to all modern particle physics collider experiments. The functional area of these systems has increased from a few square centimeters in the mid80s to 200 square meters for the CMS tracker in the early 2000s. Upgrades being considered for the high luminosity LHC will require more than 200 square meters for CMS and ATLAS experiments and over 600 square meters for ...

  3. AmBe Replacement with Tunable Neutron Spectra

    SBC: Starfire Industries LLC            Topic: 02c

    AmBe (α,n) radiochemical neutron sources are used in the US oil & gas industry for geophysical well logging. Due to the adverse radiological and material properties 241AmBe, there is an urgent need to prevent intentional or accidental diversion and/or use as a radiological dispersal device. With over 9000 active sources in the field, it is difficult to track and safeguard these materials. Develop ...

  4. TEMHDDriven Liquid Lithium for Neutron Generator Targets

    SBC: Starfire Industries LLC            Topic: 22a

    Plasma facing components have significant challenges for fusion reactors and commercial uses of fusion energy, e.g. compact neutron generators. Economical systems have very high power densities with enormous particle flux loadings that exceed capabilities for conventional static materials, e.g. W, Mo, Cu and stainless steels. The proposed solution uses flowing liquid metal layers to transport heat ...

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: 12c

    Phase I efforts will focus on finding HEA compositions that exhibit suitable phase equilibria for blade applications (e.g. FCC/L1 2 two phase equilibria). The search will begin with the construction and validation of a large CALPHAD (CALculation of PHAse Diagrams) thermodynamic database specifically designed for HEA compositions, as current CALPHAD databases are not sufficiently accurate at equiat ...

  6. Conversion of CO2 to Alkyl Carbonates using Ethylene Oxide as Feedstock

    SBC: E3TECSERVICE, LLC            Topic: 15c

    Economic and engineering analysis of these modified membranes in a retrofit mode to be added to existing propylene plants and refinery applications have combined projected energy savings of 85 trillion BTU/yr. This product will also provide an IRR of between 110 and 160% and payback periods of 7 to 11 months depending on the application.

  7. The Multiphysics Chemical Modeling and Simulation Open-Source Project

    SBC: Illinoisrocstar, L.L.C.            Topic: 12a

    United States competitiveness would benefit from increased speed of delivery of new material- and molecular systems for clean energy by enabling pre- dictive modeling & simulation-based design of such systems prior to synthesis. These com- putational predictive capabilities are also important in the areas of atomic and molecular physics, chemistry and chemical biology, coherent control of chemic ...

  8. Exploration of High Entropy Alloys for Turbine Applications

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: 15d

    Under this SBIR program, QuesTek Innovations LLC will explore the possibility of high entropy alloy (HEA) for industrial gas turbine (IGT) components with its computational alloy design tools and methods. QuesTek is uniquely qualified to find HEAs suitable for turbine components with extensive experience in superalloy design and the rapid development of materials models and databases. Phase I effo ...

  9. A Novel Injection-Locked Amplitude-Modulated Magnetron at 1497 MHz

    SBC: MUONS INC            Topic: 24b

    Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (JLab) uses low efficiency klystrons in the CEBAF machine. In the older portion they operate at 30% efficiency with a tube mean time between failure (MTBF) of five to six years. A highly efficient source (>55-60%) must provide a high degree of backwards compatibility, both in size and voltage requirements, to replace the klystron presently used at JLa ...

  10. Manufacturing Design of Bio-based Ceiling Tiles using Nanocellulose

    SBC: REVOLUTION RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: 15NCER06

    Suspended ceiling tiles are widely used in commercial and residential construction because they offer flexibility and easy access to utilities. Most of the available tiles absorb water, resulting in sagging, staining, and mold/mildew growth. They also contain potentially hazardous chemicals and release airborne fibers when broken or cut. Existing tiles are not durable, requiring frequent replaceme ...
