  1. Tool Condition Monitoring and Diagnostics

    SBC: VulcanCraft            Topic: N/A

    A smart machine tool must be able to monitor its condition and report problems. Every CNC machine should provide an alarm for tool condition problems, including tool wear, much as every automobile has a low oil indicator. Tool wear is particularly important for unattended machining as a worn tool can ruin a part. All current tool condition systems operate "blind" without direct information on curr ...

  4. Modification of the Composite and Quality of Hybrid Poplar Biomass in the Pacific Northwest

    SBC: GREENWOOD RESOURCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    73021B03-I There is a pressing need for the development of renewable energy sources in the Pacific Northwest. Hybrid poplar plantations have been developed extensively in the region for the pulp and paper, veneer, furniture, and environmental-remediation industries, and can be expanded further to provide renewable raw materials for the biofuels and bioproducts industries. The availability of ne ...

  5. Gallium-Nitride Substrates for Improved, Solid-State Lighting

    SBC: KYMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    73109S03-I Gallium-nitride-based LEDs have the potential to replace incandescent lighting in many applications, due to their high-efficiency operation. ¿ This high-payoff for gallium-nitride (GaN) LEDs centers around UV-stimulated phosphors for solid-state white lighting. However, due to the lack of materials and processing technology for GaN, this potential has not yet been realized. This pro ...

  6. Improved Silicon Carbide Materials for Very High-Temperature, Fast-Spectrum Nuclear Energy Systems

    SBC: Lightweight Solutions, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    72556B03-I Advanced materials are sought that can meet the very demanding conditions required for a fast spectrum nuclear energy system to operate at temperatures greater than 900¿C. Silicon carbide (SiC)-based materials are prime candidates and have received extensive investigation; however, there remains a need for improved material performance, reduced manufacturing costs, and improved fabri ...

  7. Low Cost, High Current Advanced Inverter Packaging with Integral Liquid-Cooled Heat Exchanger

    SBC: Rinehart Motion Systems, Llc            Topic: N/A

    73208S03-I Electric and hybrid vehicles, fuel cells, photovoltaic farms, and a host of emerging alternative power technologies could reduce our need for foreign oil imports, and reduce global pollution. These technologies are not presently cost effective, in large part due to the cost and reliability of the power electronics required to convert DC power to AC power for interfacing to the utility ...

  8. Photon Initiated-Marxed Modulators

    SBC: SCI-ENG SOLUTIONS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    72761S03-I New modulator designs are required to satisfy the demanding klystron driver requirements for the Next Generation Linear Collider at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center. The modulators must be compact, robust, and efficient; generate reproducible pulses with precise specifications; be economical to build; and have low operational, maintenance, and repair life cycle costs. This proj ...

  9. Real-Time Monitoring of Ash, Sulphur, and Elemental Contaminants by Neutron-Gamma Spectroscopy

    SBC: Sunset Laboratory, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    70649B02-II Real-time knowledge of coal feedstock properties is needed to improve the performance of coal-fueled gasifiers. However, conventional measurements provide only average information for an entire trainload of coal, whose quality can vary dramatically from car to car. Commercially available on-line coal analyzers are very expensive and typically cannot quantify mercury, arsenic, cadmium ...

  10. Novel Magnetometer for Quadrupole and Dipole Magnetic Measurements

    SBC: Tai-Yang Research Company            Topic: N/A

    72900S03-I A simple, low cost, magnetic measurement capability is needed for quadrupoles and dipoles of varying aperture and magnetic lengths. This project will develop a simple, low cost, magnetic measurement system to measure both the integrated magnetic field strength in dipole magnets and the integrated gradient strength and alignment parameters in quadrupole magnets. Phase I will demonstra ...
