  1. Colorimetric Monitoring of Trace Toxic Air Pollutants

    SBC: ChemSensing, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    One of the program areas of interest to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is the development of rapid, non-invasive monitors to detect exposure to toxic air pollutants at trace (ppt) levels. Of the 356 chemicals listed on the Chemical Emergency Preparedness and Prevention Office¿s List of Extremely Hazardous Substances (Section 302 of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-To-Kn ...

  2. Near-Zero VOC General OEM Bake Enamel

    SBC: Finishes Unlimited, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Finishes Unlimited, Inc., produces baking enamels for general purpose original equipment manufacturers who make sundry metal products such as lockers, tool boxes, compressors, folding chairs, storage racks, etc. Although it is a small company, Finishes Unlimited, Inc., has been among the leaders in one type of environmentally friendly coatings (i.e., waterborne bake enamels). In 1993, it became ...

  3. Rapid and Sensitive Electrochemical-Based Method for Improved Detection of Cryptosporidium parvum in Water

    SBC: VEGRANDIS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Cryptosporidium parvum, a waterborne pathogen, is a serious threat to the Nation¿s water supply. It does not respond to common antibiotics and resists water purification treatments. It is of interest to not only monitor C. parvum oocysts in drinking water, but also to study their fate in the environment from various sources (e.g., cattle) in lakes and streams. This is especially important to ...

  4. Fast Exchange Refrigerator for Neutron Science (FERNS)

    SBC: Containerless Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    72699B03-I Next-generation neutron sources, such as the Spallation Neutron Source at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, will require faster-than-ever data collection rates. Unfortunately, the present generation of neutron sample environment equipment (cryostats, furnaces, etc.) lacks the automation features needed to handle the anticipated onslaught of non-expert users, rapid experiments, and freque ...

  5. Design and Testing of a Fast-Release Tilted Target for RIA

    SBC: I.C. Gomes Consulting & Investment Inc.            Topic: N/A

    72340B03-I The performance of targets is critical for the successful operation of the RIA (Rare Isotope Accelerator) facility. There is a need for fast, efficient, isotope separation on-line (ISOL)-type targets for use with the compressed powder of refractory material, and with beam power up to 100 kW or higher. Among the concepts currently under study, the tilted target is a promising approach ...

  6. New, Stable Cathode Materials for OLEDs

    SBC: International Technology Exchange, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    72603B03-I Many of the cathode materials currently in use in OLEDs are metals, such as Mg and Ca and alloys. In many cases, the migration of these metals to form rough interfaces and hot-spots has lead to reduced lifetimes of the devices. There is a need to develop highly stable cathode materials that have low work function, can be nondestructively coated over large areas as flexible thin films ...

  7. Advanced Thermal Barrier Coatings for Turbine Components

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    72391S03-I Thermal barrier coatings (TBC) can provide improved engine performance, particularly with respect to specific fuel consumption. However, current thermal barrier coatings for turbine components do not have the required level of performance, due in part to catastrophic delamination from the substrate. This relatively poor reliability of TBCs has prevented their wide-scale use, and, whe ...

  8. High Performance Solid Polymer Electrolyte for Lithium Batteries

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    72394S03-I Solid lithium-ion conductive electrolytes offer great promise for the development of low cost, long life, safe lithium-based batteries for vehicular applications. Such solid electrolytes must have an ionic conductivity greater than 10-3 S/cm, a lithium-ion transference number greater than 0.3, and stability up to 5 V. Current conventional solid polymer electrolytes are well short of ...

  9. Graphical Environmental Tools for Application to Gamma-Ray Energy Tracking Arrays

    SBC: MUONS INC            Topic: N/A

    70408B02-II Highly segmented, position-sensitive, germanium detector systems are being developed for nuclear physics research where traditional electronic processing with mixed analog and digital function blocks would be enormously complex and costly. Future systems will be constructed using pipelined processing of high-speed digitized signals, as in the telecommunications industry. This projec ...

  10. Engineered Tungsten Surfaces for IFE Dry Chamber Walls

    SBC: MUONS INC            Topic: 35

    72762B03-I In the generation of inertial fusion energy (IFE), ion bombardment of the chamber wall armor can result in ion accumulation, namely He, in the armor material, leading to fracture and failure of the armor. This is of particular concern for tungsten armor, in which helium migration is slow. Thus, a means of enhancing helium transport in the tungsten armor is needed. This project wi ...
