  3. Low Cost, Reconfigurable, Multi-Channel Pulse Processing Platform

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 59b

    Planned science instruments require timeofflight (TOF) detectors with subpicosecond resolution, high count rates, and a large number (hundreds of thousands) of parallel channels. Timetodigital converters (TDCs) are effective for TOF measurement. With few exceptions, subnanosecond TDCs have been implemented as applicationspecific integrated circuits (ASICs), which are expensive and timeconsuming to ...

  4. Underground Cable Advanced Diagnostics

    SBC: Underground Systems, Inc.            Topic: 57b

    In order to optimize the operating efficiency of the underground transmission system utilities must be able to safely maximize the power cable systems capacity. This allows the operator to: (1) Establish efficient generation scheduling; (2) Maximize power transfer capability; and (3) Extend decision time and options when responding to system contingencies. These are critical elements when develo ...

  5. SOI CMOS Wafer Scale Imager Platform

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 49d

    CMOS APS detectors have emerged as an attractive imaging solution to replace CCD technology. They can be very thin, yield good signaltonoise ratio (SNR) at room temperature, and offer the possibility of incorporating inpixel data processing. But despite its potential, APS has demonstrated relatively poor actual performance; a key reason is that in existing monolithic implementations, the photodiod ...

  6. STRAW- A Hydrogen-Specific Pressure Gauge for XHV

    SBC: Saxet Surface Science            Topic: 45e

    A fundamental issue with high average current photoelectron guns is the generation of stray electrons and ions which can damage the photoemitter. Both the photogenerated electron bunch and any field emitted electrons can potentially directly impact the photocathode, desorb molecules from the gun structure and act as ionization agents for backgroundgas atoms. Ion backbombardment of the photoemitter ...

  7. Development of Commercial Foundry Source for Science-Grade Charged Particle Imagers

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 44d

    Domestic CMOS imager manufacturing technologies are attractive as a replacement for CCDs but do not yet meet all the requirements of scientific imagers. Their use in tailored scientific imaging applications is hampered by the large wafer sizes and high cost of deepsubmicron fabrication; the low voltage of standard processes also precludes the formation of deeply depleted photodiodes (PDs) in the s ...

  8. Implementation of an Energy-Saving Bro-Aware Load Balancer at 100 Gbps with Closed-Loop Flow Policy Control

    SBC: RESERVOIR LABS INC            Topic: 40a

    In an increasingly hostile computing environment, Network Intrusion Detection Systems (NIDS) serve an indispensable role in preserving the integrity of computer networks. This comes to manifest as the Department of Energy (DOE) is working at a national level to secure a number of strategic network entry points using Bro, a powerful NIDS developed by the networking group at the International Comput ...

  9. High Value Renewable Chemical Production from CO2 and Biodiesel Plant Byproduct

    SBC: UNITED ENVIRONMENT & ENERGY, LLC            Topic: 24f

    5,790 million metric tons of CO2 were emitted from fossil fuels in the U.S. in 2008. A beneficial, practical application of captured CO2 would bring significant economic and environmental benefits to CO2 generating industries. Meanwhile, biodiesel production yields around 10 weight % of byproduct glycerol. 230,000 tons of crude glycerol were produced in 2008, and 986,000 tons of glycerol are expec ...

  10. Highly Selective Proton-Conducting Composite Membranes for Redox Flow Batteries

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: 20a

    Redox flow batteries (RFBs) are a type of electrical energy storage device in which the reactants (and reaction products) are stored in liquid tanks. Redox flow batteries have many advantages over conventional batteries, and when fully developed could provide the utility industry with improved methods for dynamic operation of the electricity supply grid by providing energy storage for load leveli ...
