  1. A Microfluidic Ice Nucleating Particle Counter for Continuous Measurements from Small Aerial Platforms

    SBC: HANDIX SCIENTIFIC Inc.            Topic: 23a

    Quantifying atmospheric aerosol, clouds and precipitation processes are critical needs for understanding and interpreting Earth’s changing energy budget, is a DOE objective, and is of broader benefit to the public. Specifically, the formation of ice in the atmosphere depends on the nature and abundance of ice nucleating particles, and has major implications for precipitation and cloud interactio ...

  2. Fast, Accurate Simulations for Free-Electron Laser Oscillators

    SBC: RadiaSoft LLC            Topic: 07b

    The current generation of high-gain free-electron lasers require long undulators to achieve saturation power, and can extract only 1% of the electron beam power. High-efficiency recirculating free-electron laser concepts require substantially shorter undulators and may be able to achieve more than 10% extraction efficiency, but will require improved modeling and controls to realize their efficienc ...

  3. Modeling Electron Emission and Surface Effects of High Quantum Efficiency Photocathodes

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: 06a

    Successful operation of the Department of Energy (DOE) X-ray light sources, free electron laser (FEL), Ultrafast Electron Diffraction (UED), and linear accelerator facilities requires photocathodes capable of delivering high quantum efficiency (QE), high-brightness, and ultra-low emittance electron beams. Cryogenic temperature experiments have demonstrated the potential to lower the intrinsic emit ...

  4. Massively-Parallel Magnet Design from a Web Browser

    SBC: RadiaSoft LLC            Topic: 08a

    Next-generation light sources will rely on closely arranged sequences of high-field magnets to achieve ambitious beam parameters and high brightness. Codes available for 3D modeling and design of magnetic systems are inadequate for capturing the overlapping fields from these dense arrays of magnets. Moreover, these codes suffer from poor parallel performance, leading to long turn-around times that ...

  5. High-Performance Magnet Simulation Software

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: 17c

    The DOE is investing heavily in synchrotron x-ray sources, providing the scientific community with some of the world’s most powerful microscopes. The next generation of these machines re- quires a variety of new magnets. These magnets are highly complex, making the the design process challenging. Detailed, cost-effective design of these magnets requires accurate computer-aided modeling of the ma ...

  6. Dynamic Friction in Magnetized Electron Coolers for Relativistic Beams

    SBC: RadiaSoft LLC            Topic: 23d

    Proposed electron-ion collider (EIC) designs require hadron beam cooling at collision energies. One choice is magnetized electron cooling with high-charge relativistic electron bunches. Dynamic friction is the key physics underlying electron cooling. Present design efforts are based on parametric and approximate models for magnetized dynamic friction, which were developed for low-energy cooling sy ...

  7. A High Temperature, High Data Rate, “Smart” Dynamic Pressure Sensor for Advanced Ground Turbine Controls and Health Monitoring

    SBC: SPORIAN MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: 19e

    Fossil energy (FE)-based systems are able to achieve higher efficiencies, lower emissions, and improved reliability and availability (lower total operating costs), through advanced controls enabled by real-time sensor measurements and data processing. Within turbines, the monitoring of high speed pressure fluctuations within compressor and combustion sections can be used as part of active control ...

  8. Direct Combustion of Fine Coal from Coal Waste

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 19b

    Fine coal is a coal waste generated by washing the coal at the mines, and contains as much as 80 wt% water. Due to the lack of cost effective approaches to remove the water from fine coal before feeding into a conventional boiler, the coal producers often choose to discard the fine coal. There are already approximately 2 billion tons of fine coal in abandoned ponds and 500~800 million tons in acti ...

  9. Profiling Airborne Microwave Radiometer for Atmospheric and Cloud Research

    SBC: Boulder Environmental Sciences And Technology, LLC            Topic: 17a

    Improved measurements of the atmospheric thermodynamic state, including water vapor and clouds are necessary to improve our understanding of many atmospheric problems. Clouds and water vapor are major players in environment and their accurate measurements are very important for furthering the scientific understanding of weather and climate. Unmanned aerial systems - UAS- are a new platform that ca ...

  10. Modeling Plasma Discharge Cleaning of SRF Cavities

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: 29i

    Superconducting radio frequency (SRF) cavities, such as the continuous electron beam accelerator facility (CEBAF) 5-cell cavity, rely on high field generation, but surface contamination of the superconducting vessel walls due to initial chemical treatment and regular operation can severely impact the field strength through field emission and surface arcing. Therefore, efficient and effective clean ...
