  1. High-Performance Carbon Materials for Ultracapacitors

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    65805 High rate energy storage devices, such as ultracapacitors, are a critical enabling technology for hybrid electric vehicles (HEV). The best electrode materials for use in electric double-layer capacitors (EDLC) possess three characteristics: (1) high surface area; (2) high electrical conductivity; and (3) surface area easily accessible by electrolyte. While ruthenium-based ultracapacit ...

  2. Enhanced Efficiency Nanowire Photocathode for Large PMTs

    SBC: NanoSciences Corporation/NanoSystems Inc            Topic: N/A

    65614 The quantum efficiency of a photocathode limits overall device performance in photomultiplier tubes used in nuclear physics research. This project will develop more efficient photocathodes using nanowire technology. In particular, the production of nanowire photocathodes will be optimized, and the physical mechanisms that control their performance will be identified. In Phase I, gol ...

  3. Femtosecond Planar Electron Beam Source for Micron-Scale Dielectric Wake Field Accelerator

    SBC: Omega-P, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    65565 This project will modify a laser-driven vacuum accelerator at Brookhaven National Laboratory to produce a train of ~4 fs electron bunches spaced by 35 fs that can be manipulated to have sheet-like transverse profiles. These microbunches can be used to generate intense accelerating fields in dielectric microstructures, and possibly allow the future design of a high energy electron-posi ...

  4. KA-Band RF Transmission Line Components for a High-Gradient Linear Accelerator

    SBC: Omega-P, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    65395 Efforts are underway to develop a high-gradient electron accelerator operating at 34 GHz, to be driven by a newly-developed radio frequency (rf) magnicon amplifier. Yet few corresponding high-power components have been developed to provide rf power manipulation and transmission between the magnicon and the accelerator. This project will develop a variety of high-power Ka-band rf c ...

  5. Robust Radio Frequency Accelerator Structures at 34.272 GHZ

    SBC: Omega-P, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    65074 Continued progress in high-energy physics demands a new high energy electron-positron collider, which in turn requires new high-power, high-frequency radio frequency (RF) technology. Development of RF technology at 34.272 GHz could allow three times the accelerating gradient compared to 11.424 GHz. This project will develop a novel test device for subjecting RF structures at 34.272 GHz ...

  6. High-Power Plasma Switch for 11.4 GHZ Microwave Pulse Compressor

    SBC: Omega-P, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    65073 Continued progress in high-energy physics demands a new generation electron-positron collider, which in turn requires a new high-power, high-efficiency radio frequency (rf) source. The high peak rf power needed can only be generated using an rf pulse compressor. This project will develop a plasma switch to create an 11.4 GHz pulse with at least 0.5 GW peak power, along with novel mic ...

  7. Truss-Integrated Thermoformed Ductwork

    SBC: Steven Winter Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    65549 Conventional duct systems in houses have serious deficiencies. Usually, they are located in very hot or very cold attics with little insulation to protect them, and often they have excessive leaks and construction-caused defects. These problems result in energy losses, widely fluctuating indoor comfort conditions, and the transport of air-borne contaminants from unconditioned to condi ...

  8. Recycling of Coated Plastics Used in Automotive, IT and Commercial Applications

    SBC: Yardney Technical Products, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    65737 Commercially viable hybrid and electric vehicles require improved batteries that offer greater capacity, cycle life, and power capability with reduced size and weight. The most energy dense rechargeable batteries currently available are Li-ion batteries, yet the high cost of these batteries has prevented their commercial use. A significant cost driver of these batteries is the cost o ...
