  1. Broad Spectrum Absorption-Fluorescence Method for Determining Adsorption Capacity of Fly Ash

    SBC: PHOSPHORTECH            Topic: 171FH1

    Interference of unburned and activated carbon in fly ash with air-entraining admixtures (AEA’s) in fresh concrete mixtures is a major concern in the concrete industry. Therefore, a rapid and accurate measurement of adsorption capacity of fly ash is of great interest to this industry. In this project, a new method is suggested, which can qualitatively and quantitatively measure different surfact ...

  2. Wide-Bandgap Microstructured Semiconductor Neutron Detector

    SBC: Radiation Detection Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 26b

    There is a need for high-efficiency, radiation hard, high-temperature neutron detectors at nuclear reactor and nuclear physics facilities. Nuclear physic experiments require neutron detectors that are robust, compact, low-power, and have high-sensitivity, while stably operating in harsh environments, e.g., high-temperature and high radiation-dose. Wide-bandgap semiconductors will tolerate such env ...

  3. Multiscale Modeling of Supercritical Combustion with Two-Level Simulation on Adaptive Beamlets

    SBC: Symplectic Research Inc            Topic: 17d

    Supercritical carbon dioxide (sCO2) based power cycles is a promising technological venue that can potentially increase the power cycle efficiency in power plant operations. In addition to higher efficiency, the direct-fired sCO2 cycle, in particular, offers other benefits including the facilitation of CO2 capture and sequestration, and potentially simpler designs. In order to develop the next-gen ...

  9. A High Energy, High Power all Solid State Battery

    SBC: Excellatron Solid State, LLC            Topic: 06a

    Conventional Li ion batteries have a number of limitations that prevents them from becoming the energy storage media for electric (EV) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEV). Many of these limitations could be ultimately traced to properties and limitations of the liquid organic electrolytes used in the conventional Li ion batteries. Successful removal of the limitations is a prerequisite for success ...
