  1. Insulation and Heat Treatment of Bi-2212 Wires for Wind-and-React Coils

    SBC: Advanced Magnetic and Cryogenic, LLC            Topic: 40

    Higher Field Magnets, used in high energy physics (HEP) research, demand higher field materials such as Bi2212 round superconducting wire. The Bi2212 wire-manufacturing process depends on the coil-fabrication method and wire-insulation material. For example, the wind-and-react method requires the coil to be uniformly heated to the melt temperature and uniformly cooled to the solidification tempe ...

  2. Innovative Technology for Virtual Leased-Line Services for High-Speech Networks

    SBC: Computational Consulting            Topic: 44

    High-performance optical networks play a pivotal role within the DOE complex by enabling high-bandwidth communication and collaboration over long distances. The problem, however, is that optical networks do not have the same buffering capacity as electrical networks, and, thus, they require new techniques and protocols to share optical links. Many current techniques result in poor network utiliz ...

  3. Gas Phase Catalytic Oxidation of Cyclohexane to Cyclohexanone and Cyclohexanol

    SBC: Evernu Technology, Llc            Topic: 30

    In the U.S., the annual production of 4.6 billion pounds of nylon starts with the liquid-phase oxidation of 3.5 billion pounds of cyclohexane to KA-oil (a mixture of cyclohexanone and cyclohexanol) and the subsequent oxidation of the latter to adipic acid with HNO3. The liquid-phase cyclohexane process, which operates at only 4-10% cyclohexane conversion, is the ¿least efficient¿ industrial pro ...

  4. Nanowire Optical Assay Probe

    SBC: Illuminex Corporation            Topic: 04

    More sensitive detection methods leading to early diagnosis could significantly impact the treatment of cancer and other diseases and dramatically increase survival rates. However, current methods used to detect disease indicators do not have the needed sensitivity and often are effective only once the indicator concentration has reached a critical level. Nanotechnology-enabled probes, which can ...

  5. Advanced Materials for Thermal Management in III-Nitride LEDS

    SBC: k Technology Corporation            Topic: 24

    High-brigntess LEDs, used in general lighting applications today, are limited in luminous output by their ability to manage heat and light efficiency simultaneously. Advanced material systems are sought to improve the thermal conduction of heat from the LED to the environment. By demonstrating improved thermal management while maintaining good optical charactersitics, these advanced material syst ...

  6. Dehydration of Acids and Harsh Chemicals Via Pervaporation/Vapor Permeation Using Inorganic Membranes

    SBC: Media and Process Technology Inc.            Topic: 19

    Pervaporation (PV) and vapor permeation (VP) membranes have been touted as highly effective for a wide array of liquid and vapor separations, particularly for dehydration of aggressive chemicals; yet, they have been limited to a relatively small number of niche applications. The barriers to further penetration include cost, reliability, and performance stability. This project will develop molecu ...

  7. Hydrogen Recovery Via Nanoporous Carbon Membrane for Large Scale Refinery Application

    SBC: Media and Process Technology Inc.            Topic: 19

    Hydrogen recovery from refinery off-gas offers a cost-effective and environmentally friendly alternative to meet the projected growth in hydrogen demand in refineries. Although a unique membrane-based process was demonstrated to be technically feasible in the past, several product- and process-related barriers have prevented its field implementation. This project will develop a nanoporous carbon ...

  8. Adsorption-and Membrane-Enhanced Reactor for Fuel Reforming Applications

    SBC: Media and Process Technology Inc.            Topic: 21

    Small-scale hydrogen production, for both mobile and stationary applications, is a technology critical to the future implementation of fuel cell technology. Existing fuel reforming processes are extremely complicated, as well as capital- and energy-intensive, primarily due to their high temperature (600 to >800ºC) requirements. These disadvantages handicap the scale-down of existing reforming p ...

  9. DC-AC Inverter With Reactive-Power-Management Functionality

    SBC: Mesta Electronics, Inc.            Topic: 15

    Sections of the electrical distribution system often are so heavily loaded that voltage regulation and reliability deteriorate. Distributed generation units, which are capable of injecting real and reactive power into heavily loaded sections of the distribution system, can correct this problem. Highly reliable (99.9% minimum availability), cost-effective (less than $100/KW in quantity) energy co ...

  10. An Ultra-Precise System for Electrical Resistivity Tomography Measurements

    SBC: Multi Phase Technologies LLC            Topic: 06

    One of the most widely used geophysical methods for monitoring flow within the shallow subsurface is Electrical Resistivity Tomography (ERT). The latest generation of ERT systems can monitor data to a precision of around 1%, allowing in situ changes to be interpreted within a few percent. In turn, subsurface temperature changes can be monitored to within a few degrees Centigrade, low levels of t ...
