  1. Improved Microcalorimeter Detectors for X-ray Chemical Shift Mapping

    SBC: STAR CRYOELECTRONICS LLC            Topic: 9020868TT

    X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy is a widely used and extremely sensitive analytical technique for qualitative and quantitative chemical analysis. Superconducting Transition Edge Sensor (TES) microcalorimeter detectors have now been developed that achieve an energy resolution of 2 eV for 1.5 keV X-rays, which is sufficient to enable the measurement of the small shift of the X-ray line position that ...

  2. Dynamic Frequency Passive Millimeter-Wave Radiometer Based on Optical Up-Conversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 941D

    In the proposed effort, we will leverage this extensive experience and capabilities to realize a frequency agile mmW radiometer that can cover the range of DC-110 GHz and can be scaled to DC-200 GHz under Phase II. Ours is a photonic system that multiplies and up-coverts a low-frequency reference signal onto an optical carrier (laser) using EO modulation, then uses the modulation sidebands to inj ...

  3. A Compact and portable laser Ultrasound Visualization Tool for Non-destructive Evaluation of Nuclear Reactor Components

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: 19e

    To ensure safe and reliable power production by nuclear power plants, a wide variety of materials and components need to undergo inspections and maintenances at pre-determined intervals. Condition based maintenance is highly desirable because it can potentially avoid unnecessarily costly maintenance actions and associated error induced failures. Consequently, it can help achieve nearly all the mai ...

  4. Membrane Facilitated Dimethyl Carbonate Production from Carbon Dioxide

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 17c

    Dimethyl carbonate (DMC) is a high value organic chemical with many potentially important applications. DMC can be made from CO2 directly or indirectly. With the development of CO2 capture and sequestration technology, huge amounts of low cost CO2 will be available as a feed stock. The conversion of CO2 to DMC will be an attractive chemical production investment. A major problem associated the D ...

  5. Development of advanced soft magnetic nancomposite materials with low loss

    SBC: SPECTRUM MAGNETICS LLC            Topic: 08d

    This SBIR Phase I proposal is aimed to develop advanced soft magnetic nanocomposite materials with low loss, high flux density, and capability to operate at high frequency ranges (100kHz-10MHz). With Spectrum Magnetics & apos; proprietary technique, we will develop magnetic flake materials with thickness in the nanometer scale, which effectively reduces the eddy current loss and eliminates undesir ...

  6. High Voltage, DC-Link Capacitors for Transportable Power Conversion Systems

    SBC: TPL, INC.            Topic: 01b

    Transportable energy storage systems are emerging products for grid-tied applications. High voltage pulse power systems are planned for assembly in standard shipping containers to allow for easy transportability. Unfortunately, the current capabilities of these systems are considered inadequate due to the excessive size of the required power souce. Compact, high voltage capacitors are necessary ...

  7. Enhanced Monomer (Isosorbide) Synthesis from Biomass (cellulose) Source

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 10a

    Monomers and other chemical intermediates are typically obtained from non-renewable resources, specifically petroleum. Renewable resources, such as plant derived biomass, may become a significant source of these critical materials but new technology is required for their safe and efficient production. Compact Membrane Systems (CMS), in collaboration with the group of Professor Robin Rogers at th ...

  8. Non-Invasive Bunch Length Monitor

    SBC: Electrodynamic            Topic: 41g

    It is extremely important to understand the temporal characteristics of electron beams at accelerator photoinjectors. Measuring and setting the electron bunchlength is critical to the operation of the accelerator, and can ultimately determine if physics experiments at user-based accelerators can be successfully performed. Many parameters affect the temporal characteristics of electron bunches at ...

  9. Unified, Cross-Platform, Open-Source Library Package for High-Performance Computing

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: 02b

    Changing technologies in the high-performance computing (HPC) space lead to the creation of new tools and libraries to support each emerging paradigm. Many of these are designed only for specific configurations or for use in certain cases, which makes it difficult for a programmer to know which tool or library to use when and how to transition software built for one system to a new configuration. ...

  10. Intuitive Open Platform Usage of ASCR Resources in NumPy

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: 02c

    The Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR) program from the Department of Energy (DOE) has over the years sponsored the development of many important codes, such as Lattice QCD, Trilinos, PETSc, and Paraview, some of which are libraries. The use libraries in their code allows scientists to concentrate their efforts on their science rather than on the implementation of an often-implemented m ...
