  1. Technical Proposal: A Single Well Test for Green House Gas Sequestration/Enhanced Methane Recovery Design Parameters

    SBC: Correlations Company            Topic: 18

    There is a need to accelerate the technology for sequestering green house gas (GHG) emmissions from coal-fired electrical-generating plants, thereby reducing global warming. One sequestration option involves the injection of GHG into coalbeds. A straightforward inexpensive method is needed to predict the amount of CO2, NO2, and SO2 (all GHG components) that can be sequestered in unmineable coalb ...

  2. Achieving a High Level of Scalability in Federated Information Retrieval

    SBC: Deep Web Technologies, Llc            Topic: 45

    At the present time, no federated search engine exists that is capable of searching, aggregating, and ranking more than a small fraction of the scientific content produced by the research community at large and by DOE researchers in particular. Although thousands of sources of valuable content exist, a solution has not been developed that ensures that scientific discoveries already made can be ea ...

  3. Interactive Physics Data Analysis Using Streaming Grid Technology

    SBC: Deep Web Technologies, Llc            Topic: 42

    High Energy Physics (HEP) experiments face major challenges in building interactive analysis environments for the unprecedented volume of data that will be gathered in the next generation of experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and other accelerators. The current generation of HEP Grid infrastructures is largely aimed at the initial event reconstruction and analysis phases and may not b ...

  4. Sensitive X-Ray Fluorescence Detection for Higher Energies

    SBC: HD TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 25

    X-ray fluorescence detection at intense synchrotron sources, used at DOE facilities for materials science research, is limited by the count rate of the solid state detectors. This project will develop a multilayer-analyzer array detector with high count rate, superb energy resolution, and fast time response. Utilizing diffraction from graded multilayers, the selection of energy photons will be a ...

  5. Experimental Validation of Critical Radiation Exposed Materials for RIA Fragmentation Target System

    SBC: I.C. Gomes Consulting & Investment Inc.            Topic: 49

    Important components within the fragmentation target system of the Rare Isotope Accelerator (RIA) ¿ e.g., the permanent magnets of the EM pump of the liquid lithium target loop and the high temperature superconductor (HTS) windings of the superconducting magnets of the fragment separator ¿ are subject to performance degradation by radiation. However, no data exists concerning the performance o ...

  6. Development and Demonstration of 6-Dimensional Muon Beam Cooling

    SBC: MUONS INC            Topic: 38

    Ionization cooling, a method for shrinking the size of a particle beam, is an essential technique for future particle accelerators that use muons, such as muon colliders and neutrino factories. This proposal will develop an ionization-cooling channel based on helical and solenoidal magnets in a novel configuration. A Helical Cooling Channel (HCC) experiment will be designed, using simulations an ...

  7. Particle Tracking in Matter-Dominated Beam Lines

    SBC: MUONS INC            Topic: 38

    Most computer programs that calculate the trajectories of particles in an accelerator assume that the particles travel in an evacuated chamber. This assumption does not work for muon beams (needed for muon colliders and neutrino factories), which usually are required to pass through matter. Consequently, the trajectory calculation is limited by the lack of user-friendly numerical simulation code ...

  8. H2 Production from Coal, Using Syn-Gas Depolarized Steam Electronics Membranes

    SBC: Rbr@vision            Topic: 33

    The production of hydrogen, especially pure hydrogen, from fossil fuels and other organic sources is undesirably costly, and purifying the hydrogen is a major cost element. Low-cost durable membranes, with functionality to carry out the water-gas shift reaction, could reduce the cost of coal gasification plants by 25% or more. This project will establish mixed oxide-ion and electron-conducting m ...

  9. Spectroscopic Measurement of Carbon Isotope Ratios in Methane

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 11

    Concentrations of methane in the atmosphere have increased 150% in the past three centuries, and accurate measurements are need to characterize the sources of this greenhouse gas. Isotope measurements are a candidate technology, but existing measurement approaches are cumbersome, and require that samples be collected and returned to a lab for analysis. This project will use a near-room-temperatu ...

  10. High-Precision Instrument for Carbon-13 and Carbon-12 Isotope Ratios

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 11

    Large uncertainties in the global carbon budget complicate our understanding of how fossil fuel combustion affects the atmosphere and biosphere. To address these uncertainties, a precise and compact instrument for long-term unattended operation will be developed to measure the isotopic ratios of carbon dioxide. The approach will combine a novel signal and noise cancellation circuit with recently ...
