  1. Additive-Manufactured Superconductor Phase Shifters

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 10a

    Statement of the problem: If high‐quality phase shifters can be made rapidly and inexpensively, it will enable substantial improvements in free electron lasers (FELs) performance and benefit the exploration of atomic and molecular science. X‐ray FELs now use permanent magnetic undulators to produce x‐ray light by wiggling high‐ energy bunches of electrons in alternating magnetic fields, wi ...

  2. Integrated Catalytic Membrane System for Modular Manufacturing Of On-Purpose Propylene at Shale Gas Sites

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 22a

    Shale gas is reshaping petrochemicals. A big change is the generation of “on purpose” propylene (OPP) plants. These OPP plants in most cases are based on propane dehydration (PDH). The reason for OPP plants is the change of mixtures being fed to crackers produces less propylene. In PDH plants, propane are converted to propylene but not quantitatively (e.g. 85% yield) so there is a need to impr ...

  3. Micron-scale Direct-detection X-ray Detectors

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 14a

    Techniques such as high‐energy x‐ray microscopy and Bragg coherent diffraction imaging are being developed. These techniques provide unique structural information at the micro‐ and nano‐scale for the discovery of novel materials. However, due to the limitations of suitable detectors, these techniques are severely limited when applied at high x‐ray energies (> 30 keV). In particular, thes ...

  4. TAU Analytica: Bringing Advanced Data Analytics to Performance Analysis

    SBC: ParaTools INC            Topic: 03b

    Powerful tools, including the TAU Performance SystemQR , exist to collect, visualize, and analyze performance data about HPC applications. However, usability issues with traditional HPC programming languages, li- braries, and frameworks are pushing users to newer, higher-level frameworks for specialized purposes, such as deep learning and data analytics. HPC systems, including leadership Departmen ...

  5. 4D Rheo-SANS Sample Environment for Soft Matter, Biology and Materials Processing

    SBC: STF Technologies LLC            Topic: 17a

    The US scientific and industrial research communities in the broad areas of soft matter (i.e., polymers, complex fluids, nano and colloidal solutions, coatings and inks) and biological materials (i.e., drug delivery, hydrogels, tissue engineering) need, but lack, the ability to effectively study these important materials under flow conditions. Shear fields are widely used as much to process and co ...

  6. Scalable Framework for Integrating Multi-Omics Data for Biosystem Analysis

    SBC: Omics Data Automation, Inc.            Topic: 01a

    Understanding the genomic basis of economically important plants for growth time, crop yield, responses to drought and disease resistance is of critical importance to sustaining and improving food supplies for humans and livestock, as well as insuring sufficient raw material availability for industries that depend on plant materials, such as biofuel manufacture. Current computational methods for a ...

  7. Development of High Efficient Ion Selective Membrane Separator for Lithium Polysulfide Redox Flow Batteries

    SBC: Xergy Inc            Topic: 19a

    A growth of renewable energy technologies will help to accommodate the growing demand for electricity, provided that energy storage technologies address the intermittency of renewable energies such as solar and wind power. Lithium polysulfide (Li-PS) redox flow batteries (RFBs) have been considered as one of the most promising electrochemical energy storage technologies because of their high energ ...

  8. Novel Membranes for Electrochemical Hydrogen Compression Enabling Increased Pressure Capability and High Pumping Efficiency

    SBC: Xergy Inc            Topic: 17d

    Climate change and reduction in the cost of renewable energy systems have set the stage for wide-scale decarbonization of the energy economy. Adoption of hydrogen as an energy vector inevitably necessitates the infrastructure of technologies to enable distribution and storage of hydrogen. Xergy’s technological contribution addresses the need to efficiently compress hydrogen gas using electrochem ...

  9. SHORT FIBER PREFORM TECHNOLOGY FOR AUTOMOTIVE PART PRODUCTION

    SBC: Composites Automation LLC            Topic: 13f

    The STTR effort will evaluate an aligned, short carbon fiber (CF) material called Tailorable Universal Feedstock for Forming (TuFF) for forming of complex geometry preforms, assess process and material challenges and demonstrate mechanical properties using HP-RTM and/or Wet Compression Molding. TuFF material has demonstrated highly aligned, high fiber volume fraction (~50-60%) components with full ...

  10. Production of Environmentally-Acceptable BioLubricants for Hydropower Applications

    SBC: RiKarbon, Inc.            Topic: 15a

    Accidentally released lubricant into water bodies from hydropower production turbines and other marine (cruises, ships) applications challenges safe water recycling and management, and has invited a number of lawsuits.According to the Environmental Protection Agency, up to 16 million gallons of lubricants per year ? equating to 1.5 times the size of the Exxon Valdez spill ? are washed off into wat ...
