  1. A Portable Vibrio Cholerae Concentrator for Sensitive Pathogen Detection in Water

    SBC: Omnivis LLC            Topic: None

    This SBIR Phase I project proposes to develop an easy to use, inexpensive, and portable bacterial concentrator to enable more sensitive cholera pathogen (Vibrio cholerae) detection. Cholera affects communities across 41 countries, including Mozambique in 2019 after Cyclone Idai and Yemen in 2017. Current methods used to detect the cholera pathogen in water involves a 3 to 5-day procedure due to th ...

  2. Nanomachine Device for Semiconductor Process Control Monitoring

    SBC: Xallent LLC            Topic: None

    Conventional characterization and test methods are increasingly ineffective when applied to structures less than 100 nanometers, causing challenges across R&D, process control and failure analysis. An increasing number of subtle defects become prominent drivers of failure as device size and operating margins decrease, e.g., processing anomalies in thin gate oxides, substrate problems related to do ...

  3. Compact, High-Efficiency Air Handling Unit (CHE-AHU) for Residential HVAC Systems

    SBC: UPSTATE PARTS & SUPPLY INC            Topic: 09a

    AHUs for residential HVAC systems typically use low-efficiency blower fans (evaporator side) and simple axial fans (condenser side), and the fan and the surrounding High Resistance Mediums (heat exchanger. filter, burner, etc.) are treated as stand-alone components during design optimization. With the recent introduction of high speed electronically commuted motors (high- speed ECM), it is now pos ...

  4. SOFTOX FOR STRANDED GAS UTILIZATION

    SBC: Modular Chemical, Inc.            Topic: 22a

    Many of today’s oil producers are forced to flare associated natural gas or shut-in wells because they cannot economically bring the gas to market. Natural gas flaring and venting exposes produc- ers to environmental liabilities, reduces potential revenues, and depreciates assets. Initially, this project will focus on a particularly acute problem for many producers—the co-production (with oil) ...

  5. Novel Membrane System for Lithium Recovery from Oilfield Brines

    SBC: BETTERGY CORP.            Topic: 17b

    Enriching lithium from oilfield brines while performing desalination of the produced water can provide a solution that recovers valuable lithium from highly mineralized brine while at the same time making possible to reuse and recycle the treated waste water. State-of-the-art technologies for recovering lithium from oilfield brine include gravity separation, gas flotation, and flocculation. These ...

  6. Low Cost Data Acquisition Synchronization for Nuclear Physics Applications

    SBC: KLIMA, JOANNA            Topic: 27b

    The DOE Office of Nuclear Physics (NP) seeks innovations that will advance our nation’s capability to perform nuclear physics research, and more specifically to improve DOE Nuclear Physics (NP) Facilities and the wider NP community experimental programs. For example, data acquisition (DAQ) for the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB), currently under construction, will require considerable spe ...

  10. Mega-Watt Planar Coaxial Aluminum Nitride Window for eRHIC

    SBC: Schultheiss, Thomas J            Topic: 30h

    The Office of Nuclear Physics long range plans include allocation of resources to develop technology for a polarized electron-ion collider. Brookhaven National Lab proposes to develop an electron ring-ring design that requires high power RF couplers. Their present coupler design includes Beryllia windows. Beryllia presents safety concerns and added costs for handling.The material properties of Alu ...
