  1. Modular Addressable Research Irradiator using Flat Panel X-ray Sources

    SBC: STELLARRAY INCORPORATED            Topic: 02b

    "The National Academy of Sciences issued a report in February 2008 detailing isotope replacement priorities in the interests of national security [National Research Council, 2008] . 137Cs used in “self-contained” irradiators was identified as the single most dangerous isotope in the inventory, owing to its long half life 30+ years) and production as cesium chloride salt, which me ...

  2. Transmission Incipient Detection & Fault Location- TID&FL

    SBC: Underground Systems, Inc.            Topic: 22a

    In order to optimize the operating efficiency of transmission systems utilities must be able to quickly restore service after a failure. Locating faults with current technologies can be a time consuming, skill and labor intensive process. Underground transmission systems are hidden from view and fault location can take sometimes days or weeks. Detecting and locating incipient faults prior to fail ...

  3. Web-Based Computational Model Builder for Nuclear Energy Advanced Modeling and Simulation

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: 19d

    According to the World Nuclear Association, the U.S. is the largest producer of nuclear power worldwide. In fact, the U.S. provides over 30 percent of the worlds nuclear generation of electricity. Although few new reactors have been built in the past 30 years, the association anticipates that four to six reactors may be built by 2020. The first of the reactors will be built in response to 16 licen ...

  4. An Additive Manufacturing Technology for the Fabrication and Characterization of Nuclear Reactor Fuel

    SBC: FREE FORM FIBERS L.L.C.            Topic: 19b

    Phase I of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) project was conducted under Department of Energy's (DOE) Advanced Technologies for Nuclear Energy (NE) topic 19(b), entitled Advanced Technologies for the Fabrication, Characterization of Nuclear Reactor Fuel. Phase II preserves the two-pronged vision and goals outlined in Phase I. First, this project seeks to provide a technological a ...

  5. A Hybrid HTS/LTS Superconductor Design For High-Field Accelerator Magnets

    SBC: Particle Beam Lasers, Inc.            Topic: 33b

    Proposed designs for a Future Circular Collider (FCC) to collide protons with a center-of-mass energy of 100 TeV call for dipoles with fields up to 20 Tesla (T). This is significantly beyond the present technology and requires using High Temperature Superconductors (HTS). The recent Particle Physics Project Prioritization Panel (P5), organized by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), strongly supp ...

  6. Automated Simulation Of Selective Laser Melting Additive Manufacturing For Process Design

    SBC: SIMMETRIX INC.            Topic: 02a

    Additive Manufacturing (AM), where three-dimensional (3D) objects are created from a digital model by depositing and fusing successive layers of material, provides the ability to produce low-volume, customized products with complex geometries relatively quickly at a moderate cost. However, AM processes sometimes fail to produce acceptable parts, due to either geometric in- accuracy (e.g., shrinkag ...

  7. Selective Catalysis for One-Step Lignocellulose Delignification and Lignin Valorization to High Value Methoxyphenols

    SBC: Spero Energy, Inc.            Topic: 12a

    The U.S.s global leadership position in the manufacture of high value chemicals (HVCs) relies on its ability to produce and utilize simple and useful organic (SUO) building block chemicals, a $400 billion a year enterprise based on nonrenewable petroleum feedstock. To maintain U.S.s leadership position in the 21st century, we must seek alternate renewable and economically competitive sources for m ...

  8. SpectroCCD X-ray Camera for energy dispersive spectrometers

    SBC: Sydor Instruments, LLC            Topic: 03d

    Worldwide there are a number of synchrotron beamlines dedicated to resonant soft x-ray inelastic scattering. There are also new beamlines currently being designed to take advantage of improved third generation synchrotron radiation sources and this powerful experimental technique for probing electronic structure. These beamlines utilize energy dispersive spectrometers and share a common need for a ...

  9. High Resolution Diffraction Imaging of Natural Fracture Zones in Unconventional Shale Reservoirs for Well Placement Optimization

    SBC: Z-Terra Inc.            Topic: 15c

    Accounting for the geologic conditions in unconventional shales is an important factor in an optimization problem. Placing the wells too close wastes drilling money. Placing the wells too far leaves resources in the ground. Given the fact that a well in unconventional shales may cost $12-20 million, optimizing the well placement of hundreds of wells in a field becomes a very large cost savings and ...

  10. Quantifying Appropriate De-rating of 1.2kV, 1.7kV and 3.3kV SiC MOSFETs Subject to Cosmic Rays

    SBC: MONOLITH SEMICONDUCTOR INC            Topic: 11a

    In the budget period 1 of the phase-II proposal, the effect of terrestrial cosmic rays on the failure rate of 1.2kV, 1.7kV and 3.3kV SiC power MOSFETs will be studied. The goal of the study is to quantify the appropriate breakdown voltage de-rating needed for SiC MOSFETs subject to cosmic rays. The failure rate of SiC power MOSFETs as a function of the reverse blocking voltage will be determined a ...
