  2. Seamless Nb Tubes for SRF Cavities

    SBC: Shear Form Inc            Topic: 29b

    The problems with current pure niobium (Nb) superconducting radio frequency (SRF) cavities are that manufacture is expensive; cavity performance is often poor; and manufacturing results are inconsistent. These problems stem primarily from three factors: (i) the high cost of pure Nb, (ii) a poor and inconsistent microstructure in the starting niobium material, and (iii) seam welding to manufacture ...

  4. A Quantitative Non-destructive Residual Stress Assessment Tool for Pipelines

    SBC: Generation 2 Materials Technology Llc            Topic: 111PH2

    There exists a wide-range need in both industry and government for quantitative residual stress measurements. Generation 2 Materials Technology LLC (G2MT) will collaborate with partners from industry and government to calibrate and commercialize the eStress system to assess residual stress from mechanical damage and re-rounding. The industrial members, consortiums, and government laboratories who ...

  5. Dynamic Non-Contact 3D Measurement System for Rollover Testing

    SBC: Photon-x, Inc.            Topic: 07NH2

    During Phases I and II, Photon-X successfully demonstrated the feasibility of applying its patented Spatial Phase Imaging technology to the problem of non-contact 3D imaging during a rollover test and delivered a viable prototype system. During Phase IIB, Photon-X will continue to refine the system in preparation for commercialization. Photon-X will use this opportunity to add an additional camer ...

  6. Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) Physical Unclonable Functions

    SBC: Lewis Innovative Technologies, Inc.            Topic: OSD10A02

    LIT accomplished all Phase I goals and technical objectives. In Phase I LIT produced an effective Random Number Generator (RNG) and tested two PUF designs. The PUF designs showed greatly improved Entropy and Stability over other technologies. LITs Entropy Goal for Phase II is 100% (already proven by analysis) and the Stability goal is one bit error per million bits. In Phase II LIT will ma ...

  7. Ultra Lightweight High Pressure Hydrogen Fuel Tanks Reinforced with Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: Applied Nanotech, Inc.            Topic: 03a

    At the present time, carbon fiber tanks are very expensive, with the high pressure vessel industry standard Toray T700 carbon fiber costing between $20 and $50 per kilogram alone. At this high price, the carbon fiber currently comprises as much as 75% of the overall tank cost and is a major roadblock on the path to commercialization. To make hydrogen fuel cells in early market and light-duty vehic ...

  8. High Specific Activity Sm-153 by Post Irradiation Isotope Separation

    SBC: IsoTherapeutics Group LLC            Topic: 46b

    Samarium-153 (153Sm) has ideal nuclear properties for a variety of therapeutic applications; however, it is only available in low specific activity (radioactivity/weight) form. While large quantities can be made by the 152Sm(n,)153Sm reaction in a medium flux reactor such as at the University of Missouri Research Reactor Center (MURR), typical irradiation parameters result in less th ...

  9. Refactor++: Automated Support for Program Enhancements

    SBC: SEMANTIC DESIGNS            Topic: 62c

    Science and engineering depend on evolving ever more complex software, typically coded in C++, to investigate phenomena or design sophisticated products. The rate of delivered value for such software is often limited by its organization, and scientists/engineers spend significant effort trying to understand the code organization and restructuring the code to enable the next interesting concept o ...

  10. Tantalum Tube for Diffusion Barriers

    SBC: Shear Form Inc            Topic: 64a

    Diffusion barriers used in Nb3Sn wire are currently fabricated by wrapping Ta sheet into a tube with an overlap seam. The result of current practice is non- uniform deformation in the Ta sheet as it thins by wire drawing because of non-uniform grain size and texture. In addition, a significant portion of the diffusion barrier is twice as thick as need be. The overlap is wasteful of Ta and produc ...
