  1. 3D Tip Characterization and Surface Reconstruction

    SBC: Nanometrology International, Inc.            Topic: 9070168TT

    Nanometrology International, Inc. (NMI) proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of 3-dimensional (3D) characterization of nanoscale objects using scanning probe microscopy (SPM) with a measurement uncertainty of less than 0.7 nm. To accomplish this task, we propose a novel method of 3D tip characterization and use of an innovative surface reconstruction algorithm recently introduced by NIST and th ...

  2. A Novel Composite Membrane for High Temperature Hydrogen Separation

    SBC: BETTERGY CORP.            Topic: 09a

    Increased use of hydrogen as a fuel can provide benefits to our nations energy security, the environment and economic growth. Toward hydrogen economy, an innovation in hydrogen separation technology is needed in the production of hydrogen. Current separation technologies for industrial hydrogen production mainly include pressure swing adsorption process and the cryogenic separation process, which ...

  3. Acid-Base Blend Membranes for Redox Flow Batteries

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: 19a

    Redox flow batteries (RFBs) have the potential for economical storage of electrical energy than other battery chemistries. They use high-cost ion exchange membranes as separators between anolyte and catholyte, which prevent broad market penetration. Proton exchange membranes (e.g., Nafion) are poorly selective, allowing undesired cross-diffusion of active species in solution electrolytes across t ...

  4. Advanced Membrane Technology for Helium Recover

    SBC: Helios-NRG, LLC            Topic: 10d

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase 1 project will lead to the development of a simple, cost effective technology which can recover helium from gas reservoirs containing helium concentrations too low to permit economic recovery at present. This will enable helium recovery from fields currently producing natural gas but considered uneconomical for the recovery of the contained heli ...

  5. Analysis of New WWVB Modulation Schemes for Future Broadcast

    SBC: XW, LLC dba Xtendwave            Topic: N/A

    This Phase 2 project targets the completion of the development of an improved system for the broadcasting of the WWVB signal, as a direct continuation of the Phase 1 project, which successfully validated the proposed approach through a feasibility study and analyses. Objectives of this project include the design of the new modulation scheme and protocol, the development of a new time-code generato ...

  6. Bro-Intelligent Load Balancer Towards Terabit-Scale Cyber-Security

    SBC: RESERVOIR LABS INC            Topic: 39d

    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 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 Computer Science Institute in ...

  7. ClimatePipes: User-Friendly Data Access, Data Manipulation, Data Analysis and Visualization of Community Climate Models

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: 30a

    The aim of this proposal is to facilitate the access that non-researchers have to data generated from high-resolution, long-term, climate change projections performed as part of the U.S. Global Change Research Program. Effective analysis in climate science depends on having the appropriate cyber infrastructure to enable people to discover, access, manipulate, and visualize the large and complex da ...

  8. Development of a Highly Selective Exchange Resin for Ga(III) Sequestration

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: 57a

    Separations chemistry is an important tool that is employed for a wide variety of applications associated with DOE missions. The ligand 4-chloro-2-[(6-chloro-7-methyl-2H-1,3-benzoxazin-3(4H)-yl)methyl]-5-methylphenol is currently employed as an additive to solvent extraction methods, which are neither rapid nor environmentally sound due to large quantities of toxic waste generated. The development ...

  9. EPICS Version 4 Application to Physics Model Servers

    SBC: Epic Consulting            Topic: 15a

    Through phase 1 and phase 2 SBIR grants, s fully functional I/O Controller and communication protocol for version 4 of EPICS is completed. An additional phase 1 grant that is currently in progress is being used to develop data types to support higher data volumes with multi-channel arrays, multi-dimensional arrays, and images. This new software architecture provides a flexible and extendible archi ...

  10. HERMES-Based X-ray Strip Detector

    SBC: Sydor Instruments, LLC            Topic: 13a

    The effectiveness of synchrotron radiation science is being hindered by the limited availability of advanced detectors. The capability to produce photon fluxes has outpaced the ability to detect and measure the resultant photons. This is due to the limited deployment of existing detectors as well as very limited development effort to provide new advanced capabilities. As synchrotron radiation expe ...
