  1. Design and Fabrication of the ¿AODS¿: All-in-One Digitizer System-on-chip

    SBC: Nalu Scientific, LLC            Topic: 29b

    In this project Nalu Scientific will design, develop, and make commercially available the “AODS”, a fast measurement tool to readout high speed signals generated by particles in particle and high energy physics experiments. Detection of individual charged particles and photons and estimation of their properties, momentum, and direction of arrival is the basis for a wide range of scientific and ...

  2. Design And Development Of TR-BHM: Time Resolved Beam

    SBC: Nalu Scientific, LLC            Topic: 09b

    NSL recognizes the need within the accelerator community for robust and accurate beam halo monitoring detectors. Non-idealities in the accelerating equipment, uncertainties in current machine controls, and random noise driven fluctuations all combine to diminish the quality and focus of accelerated charged particle beams which results in degradation of the resulting physics, losses which decrease ...

  3. A Novel Catalytic Reactor For Conversion Of CO2 Into Benzene

    SBC: Susteon Inc.            Topic: 22c

    Almost 15 million metric tons per year of essentially pure CO2 is captured in the United States from ethanol, hydrogen, ammonia, and natural gas processing plants. Some of this CO2 is used for merchant applications such as food and beverage and other applications, but a large portion of this captured CO2 is emitted to the atmosphere. This CO2 can be converted into high value chemicals, but the key ...

  4. Additive-Manufactured Superconductor Phase Shifters

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 10a

    Statement of the problem: If high‐quality phase shifters can be made rapidly and inexpensively, it will enable substantial improvements in free electron lasers (FELs) performance and benefit the exploration of atomic and molecular science. X‐ray FELs now use permanent magnetic undulators to produce x‐ray light by wiggling high‐ energy bunches of electrons in alternating magnetic fields, wi ...

  5. Integrated Catalytic Membrane System for Modular Manufacturing Of On-Purpose Propylene at Shale Gas Sites

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 22a

    Shale gas is reshaping petrochemicals. A big change is the generation of “on purpose” propylene (OPP) plants. These OPP plants in most cases are based on propane dehydration (PDH). The reason for OPP plants is the change of mixtures being fed to crackers produces less propylene. In PDH plants, propane are converted to propylene but not quantitatively (e.g. 85% yield) so there is a need to impr ...

  6. Micron-scale Direct-detection X-ray Detectors

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 14a

    Techniques such as high‐energy x‐ray microscopy and Bragg coherent diffraction imaging are being developed. These techniques provide unique structural information at the micro‐ and nano‐scale for the discovery of novel materials. However, due to the limitations of suitable detectors, these techniques are severely limited when applied at high x‐ray energies (> 30 keV). In particular, thes ...

  7. TAU Analytica: Bringing Advanced Data Analytics to Performance Analysis

    SBC: ParaTools INC            Topic: 03b

    Powerful tools, including the TAU Performance SystemQR , exist to collect, visualize, and analyze performance data about HPC applications. However, usability issues with traditional HPC programming languages, li- braries, and frameworks are pushing users to newer, higher-level frameworks for specialized purposes, such as deep learning and data analytics. HPC systems, including leadership Departmen ...

  8. Acoustic Smart Cement for Well Integrity Diagnostics

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: 19b

    Cementing is an integral part of well construction, providing the seal, protection, and support for the casing to maintain barriers that isolate the well.Wells can experience integrity failure due to structural instability in cemented regions due to subsidence and compaction caused by reservoir depletion over the lifetime of the well.Increased knowledge of cement placement, integrity, and conditio ...

  9. Production of Environmentally-Acceptable BioLubricants for Hydropower Applications

    SBC: RiKarbon, Inc.            Topic: 15a

    Accidentally released lubricant into water bodies from hydropower production turbines and other marine (cruises, ships) applications challenges safe water recycling and management, and has invited a number of lawsuits.According to the Environmental Protection Agency, up to 16 million gallons of lubricants per year ? equating to 1.5 times the size of the Exxon Valdez spill ? are washed off into wat ...

  10. Metamaterial Void Sensor for Fast Transient Testing

    SBC: Goldfinch Sensor Technologies and Analytics LLC            Topic: 30a

    After the Daiichi nuclear disaster, the US Congress placed emphasis on accident tolerant fuels for reactors.During accident events, voids in cooling fluid can cause cladding weakening, and it is important to measure these effects in a controlled test.The project develops a fast void detector that can detect and localize voids, with a quantifiable detection limit superior to a capacitive void senso ...
