  2. An Automated, Atomic Fluorescence-Based, Field Deployable Groundwater Mercury Monitoring System

    SBC: Brooks Rand Ltd            Topic: 08b

    Mercury is a hazardous pollutant that threatens human and ecosystem health, and exists in many contaminated subsurface environments. Monitoring mercury contamination in groundwater is challenging due to the considerable effort and expense involved in collecting samples, maintaining sample integrity during transport and storage, and subsequent laboratory analysis. These constraints often make high ...

  3. Power Efficient Supercomputing

    SBC: Cognitive Electronics Llc            Topic: 35d

    Datacenters house server farms that perform many different jobs ranging from search engines to supercomputing. In aggregate these computer systems already consume enormous power, and their energy requirements are increasing both in absolute terms and in proportion to the total capacity of the United States electrical grid. With higher power consumption has come greater difficulty in keeping these ...

  4. High Gain and Frequency Ultra-Stable Integrators for ICC and Long Pulse ITER Applications

    SBC: Eagle Harbor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 69d

    In modern fusion concepts, inductive pickup loops continue to be one of the primary magnetic diagnostics. To convert the direct voltage measurements from the inductive pickup loop to a measurement of magnetic field, the loop voltage must be integrated. In practice several factors make the integration difficult, especially for long-pulse applications when there are many ...

  5. Process Intensification Through Improved Dryer Engineering Data and Design

    SBC: FOREST CONCEPTS, LLC            Topic: 10b

    Conversion of lignocellulosic biomass to liquid transportation fuels and bioproducts is a core element of our nations strategy to replace imported oil with renewable domestic resources. Thermo chemical conversion processes typically require feedstocks 5 to 7.5 times drier than the raw materials and thus require a drying process step. While dryer design data for grains and many industrial materials ...

  6. Real-Time, In Situ Measurement of Hexavalent Chromium in Groundwater


    The U.S Department of Energy is seeking a sensitive and robust sensor that can perform real-time, in situ monitoring of hexavalent chromium in groundwater wells at environmental legacy sites, and that is capable of operating for extended periods without maintenance. Recent laboratory tests have shown that chromate ion, which is the dominant form of hexavalent chromium at the near-neutral pH of nat ...

  7. Full Pressure Range Environmental Gas Heating Holder for the Transmission Electron Microscope

    SBC: Hummingbird Precision Machine Inc.            Topic: 16a

    Researchers are currently hindered when observing dynamic gas-solid interactions in the transmission electron microscope (TEM). Yet solid-state materials and gases interact in many important ways. The most critical technological application for these observations is catalysis, where one would like to directly observe on the atomic scale how catalysts respond to the environment while they are activ ...

  8. Cross-Correlative Double-Tilt Nano-Mechanical Testing Platform for The Transmission and Scanning Electron Microscopes

    SBC: Hummingbird Precision Machine Inc.            Topic: 14a

    Understanding the microstructural origins of the mechanical behavior of materials has always been a core area of mechanical engineering and materials science. Renewed importance has been placed on mechanical behavior studies because the length scales of electronic and mechanical structures have decreased to nano-scale dimensions and are promising new generations of energy efficient nano-scale elec ...

  9. Liquid and Full Pressure Range Gas Environmental TEM Specimen Holders for High-Resolution Elemental Analysis

    SBC: Hummingbird Precision Machine Inc.            Topic: 14a

    The inability to dynamically image solid-state materials at atomic resolutions and perform spectroscopy at the same time in changing liquid and gas environments is a significant impediment to the advance of multiple areas of science. Recently Hummingbird Scientific has developed commercially viable in-situ continuous flow liquid and atmospheric pressure gas transmission electron microscope (TEM) s ...

  10. The Use of Micro-Channel Reactors for Process Intensification in the Production of Transportation Fuels from Biomass

    SBC: INNOVATEK, INC.            Topic: 10b

    Americas transportation sector relies almost exclusively (94%) on refined petroleum products, accounting for over 70% of the oil used. Nearly 9 million barrels of oil are required every day to fuel the 247million vehicles that constitute the U.S. lightduty transportation fleet. Biomass from agricultural residuals or nonfood sources is a nearterm alternative to oil that can be used for sustainable ...
