  1. CloudSpan: Enabling Scientific Computing Across Cloud and Grid Platforms

    SBC: Virkaz Technologies            Topic: 47b

    Within the Nuclear Physics community, grid computing has been established as paradigm for data sharing and computational analysis on a massive scale. In addition, cloud computing has recently emerged as a paradigm in which users lease the resources required to maintain and create virtual storage and computational elements in a shared hosting environment. This project will develop an infrastructu ...

  2. Insider Threat Detection and Response Using Formal Methods

    SBC: Aries Design Automation, LLC            Topic: 52d

    This project will extend the Capability Acquisition Graph (CAG) model to a form that can be easily analyzed with formal methods in order to develop countermeasures for cyber attacks arising from within an organization. The extension will be based on an efficient translation of the problem to Boolean Satisfiability (SAT), in order to exploit the both the speed and capacity of SAT solvers. Extensio ...

  3. Formal Methods for Robustness Checking of Radiation-Hardened-by-Design Microelectronics

    SBC: Aries Design Automation, LLC            Topic: 60b

    For more than four decades, space-based systems have been used to support the detection of activities associated with the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. This project will develop efficient and scalable tool to evaluate the robustness of radiation-hardened circuits and to automatically generate recommendations for radiation hardening in these space systems. The tool will be based o ...

  4. Nonpolar Green LEDs Based on InGaN

    SBC: CERMET, INC.            Topic: 10c

    Current green LEDs suffer from lower efficiency compared to blue and red LEDs. This lower efficiency hampers the use of RGB solutions to solid state light sources. This project will bridge the ¿green gap¿ by developing nonpolar green InGaN-based LEDs with state of the art properties. These properties include record low defect density, InGaN emitters, high hole concentration, and p-type InGaN, ...

  5. HgTe/CdTe Superlattice FTIR Detectors Optimized for the 300-to-1000 cm-1 Region

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: 58c

    The 300-1000 cm-1 spectral region, commonly referred to as the fingerprint region, is rich in spectral signatures; also, blackbody emission at room temperature peaks in this region. Thus, high-resolution infrared (IR) detectors sensitive in this region are seriously needed for the remote sensing of weapons of mass destruction (WMD), especially nuclear weapons. However, existing IR detectors do n ...

  6. Development of Thin Refractory Actinide Plates for High Power RIB Targets

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

    The performance of the target is essential for the successful operation of a RIB (Radioactive Ion Beam) facility. The target must have fast release to allow short-lived isotopes to be available for experiments, and it has to be able to withstand the power that will be deposited in the bulk of the target material. The availability of thin plates of refractory actinides, with high density and high ...

  7. Nano-Engineered Anodes for Lithium-ion Batteries

    SBC: Engi-Mat Co.            Topic: N/A

    Renewable energy and energy storage both play a very important part in the emerging energy landscape, especially when used in concert. An example of an often-cited ¿ideal situation¿ is one where renewable energy sources, such as solar or wind, generate electricity that can then either be stored in electric vehicle batteries for transportation or in battery energy storage systems for off-grid en ...

  8. High Voltage Lithium-Ion Nano-Cathodes

    SBC: Engi-Mat Co.            Topic: 14d

    For over 15 years, lithium-ion technology has played a key role in revolutionizing the portable electronics industry by providing high energy density batteries at affordable prices. This remarkable battery technology is now looking to permeate into other applications, particularly plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV), where the requirements are significantly different. However, the convention ...

  9. Backside Contact Multijunction Solar Cells for Concentrator Applications

    SBC: MicroLink Devices            Topic: 23d

    Solar concentrator systems will require solar cells with improved efficiency and reduced cost in order to be competitive. New approaches are needed to build solar cells for optimum performance in high concentration applications. This project will demonstrate multifunction solar cells with backside contacts, which can significantly improve cell efficiencies when used in high-concentration applica ...

  10. High Power Co-Axial SRF Coupler

    SBC: MUONS INC            Topic: 04b

    A superconducting RF (SRF) power coupler capable of handling 500 kW CW RF power is required for present and future storage rings and linacs. There are over 35 coupler designs for SRF cavities ranging in frequency from 325 to 1500 MHz. Coupler windows vary from cylinders to cones to disks and RF power couplers will always be limited by the ability of ceramic windows to withstand the stresses due to ...
