  2. Dynamic Quantum Frequency Conversion for Quantum Networks

    SBC: NUCRYPT LLC            Topic: 06a

    Functions like data format conversion and signal routing are ubiquitous in traditional communication networks, but need modification to be suitable for use in future quantum-enabled networks. In particular, quantum signals do not allow for electronic processing and certain metrics like insertion loss and noise are much more critical for quantum signals than traditional optical signals. We will inv ...

  3. Copper Nano-TSVs for 3D Integrated Sensors

    SBC: Nhanced Semiconductors, Inc.            Topic: 29d

    3D circuit integration improves performance, reduces cost, and enables new applications by intimate heterogeneous integration of best of class semiconductor devices. A necessary element for 3D assembly is Through Silicon Vias (TSVs), which provide vertical electrical connections in the stacked device. NHanced currently employs tungsten to fill its nanoscale TSVs (0.4 to 1.2µm diameter). Tungsten ...

  4. Additively Manufactured Z-Channel Detectors for Heavy Ion Accelerator Diagnostics

    SBC: ROBOT NOSE CORPORATION            Topic: 30f

    Argonne National Laboratory has pioneered a new method for additively manufacturing MCPs and functionalizing their channels with atomic layer deposition. We will help extend their technology to particle detection at Nuclear Physics facilities for beam tuning, and test a prototype detector at the ATLAS facility. The following figure summarizes the 5x faster pulse response of our proposed detector: ...

  5. Development Of A Beam Halo Monitor

    SBC: MUONS INC            Topic: 09b

    Advanced beam diagnostics are essential for reliable operation of high-performance accelerators and the intense beams produced by them. Non-invasive diagnostics can be used continuously with intense beams, while invasive techniques interfere with the beams and distort the beam profiles. In addition, traditional solid-based beam monitoring instrumentation produces unacceptable levels of radiation o ...

  6. Large-Aperture 6 T Dipole for Ion Storage Ring

    SBC: Accelerator Technology Corporation            Topic: 30g

    ATC requests Phase 1 SBIR funding to develop a 2-layer NbTi Cable-in-Conduit (CIC) conductor suitable for a large-aperture 6 T dipole. ATC has successfully developed a single-layer 13 kA NbTi CIC cable, and our collaborators at Texas A&M University (TAMU) have successfully used it to make a 3 T dipole suitable for the arcs of a 100 GeV Ion Ring that has until now been the baseline design for JLEIC ...

  7. Low-cost and Efficient Cooling of on-Detector Electronics Using Conformal Thermoelectric Modules

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: 29d

    Thermoelectric coolers (TECs) are solid-state devices with no moving parts and working fluids to provide reliable cooling power compared to traditional cooling systems such as vacuum compressors. However, their relatively high cost, small form factor and low efficiency have relegated them to niche applications such as small scaled portable coolers and yet to justify the large volume cooling compet ...

  8. Metal-Organic Frameworks for the Separation of O2 from Air

    SBC: NuMat Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 23b

    Under this Phase I SBIR DOE grant, NuMat will validate and evaluate the feasibility of air separation technology originally developed at Sandia National Laboratories. This promising technology employs oxygen selective metal-organic frameworks (MOFs). Given their oxygen selectivity, this technology will enable more energy efficient air separation, higher oxygen recovery rates, with a smaller overal ...

  9. Integrating Software/Hardware Approaches for Compressive Sensing to Enhance the Performance of Ultra-High-Speed Electron Cameras

    SBC: SIVANANTHAN LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: 15e

    Sivananthan Laboratories will develop the compressive sensing (CS)/inpainting algorithms and associated software to optimize the acquisition speed, image resolution/sensitivity, and data transfer/storage requirements for an ultra-high-speed camera used in (scanning) transmission electron microscopy (S/TEM) applications. Sivananthan Laboratories will leverage its CS expertise through collaboration ...

  10. Diode lasers and Small Nanoparticulate Matrices Combine to Elevate Sensitivity of MILDI-MSI

    SBC: Ionwerks, Inc.            Topic: 24a

    Imaging of molecular components of plant tissue (roots, leaves, seeds etc.) by microfocused laser desorption is maturing into a useful tool for describing plant molecular biology. Due to pioneering work in DOE laboratories and elsewhere the detection sensitivity of laser desorbed molecules is increased by the addition microscale sized colloidal metals (e.g. Sliver) or graphite to aid as a “matri ...
