  1. Ethanol Production via Consolidated Bioprocessing

    SBC: Advanced Bioconversion Technologies            Topic: 22

    72808-The conversion of cellulosic biomass to commodity products via biological processing could benefit society by improving energy security, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and promoting rural economies. However, commercial application is impeded by the current absence of low-cost technology to overcome the recalcitrance of cellulosic biomass. This project will develop a strain of Clostridi ...

  2. Carbon Dioxide Recovery from Combustion Flue Gas Using Carbon-Supported Amine Sorbents

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: 45

    75640-This project addresses the environmental problem of the removal and recovery of carbon dioxide (CO2) from combustion/incineration flue gas in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Specifically, carbon-dioxide will be removed from flue gas by using sorbents based on amines that are supported on low-cost activated carbons. Phase I will demonstrate the superior CO2-sorption performance of ...

  3. The Manufacturing of State-of-the-Art Reconfigurable Board for Heterogeneous Computing

    SBC: Advanced Principles Group, Inc.            Topic: 2

    73089-DOE Office of Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation (NA) applications, especially in the area of software radio, drive wide bandwidths and therefore require high-density super-computing-class I/O, memory, and signal processing capabilities. General-purpose processors do not provide enough performance density to effectively address these applications. The introduction of super-computing boards b ...

  4. High-Efficiency, Ultra-High Pressure Electrolysis with Direct Linkage to Photovoltaic Arrays

    SBC: Avalence, Llc            Topic: 39

    75661-The production of hydrogen fuel from renewable resources such as solar and wind in distributed-generation, small-scale applications would provide an environmentally-benign, truly sustainable transportation fuel supply. But before this can be achieved, the hydrogen generating systems must become as reliable as such home appliances as central air conditioning or furnaces (which require only a ...

  5. An Innovative Technique of Preparing Solar Grade Silicon Wafers from Metallurgical Grade Silicon by In-Situ Purification

    SBC: GT Equipment Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 39

    75655-The photovoltaics industry has found that traditional sources of secondary grade polysilicon are no longer readily available at inexpensive prices, and prices are getting significantly higher. Reducing the cost of the silicon wafers is the key to lowering the price of crystalline silicon solar cells to competitive levels. This project will develop a single-step wafer fabrication process in ...

  7. APD Injected Vacuum Photomultiplier

    SBC: NanoSciences Corporation/NanoSystems Inc            Topic: 16

    75403-The detection and identification of particles and nuclei is important in high energy, cosmic ray, and nuclear physics. Photodetectors play an important role in particle tracking and identification. The important issues for future photodetectors are improved detection efficiency, higher rate capability, improvements in aging, improved reliability, and timing resolution in the sub 100 ps ran ...

  8. Fast X-Band Phase Shifter

    SBC: Omega-P, Inc.            Topic: 47

    72922-In order to achieve the high peak power required to drive a future electron-positron collider, an approach known as DLDS (delay line distribution system) combines the output powers of eight 75-MW X-band klystrons, and directs one-quarter-width slices out of the 600 MW, 1.6 microsecond pulse to four successive accelerator sections using phase interference due to rapid klystron phase shifts. ...

  9. Quasi-Optical 34-GHz Radio Frequency (RF) Pulse Compressor

    SBC: Omega-P, Inc.            Topic: 45

    72041-The quest for an ever-increasing acceleration gradient for a high-energy linear collider leads naturally to considerations of producing energy at millimeter wavelengths. As at centimeter wavelengths, radio frequency pulse compression is needed to produce the required high peak power pulses. Therefore, this project will develop quasi-optical passive and active pulse compression structures. ...

  10. Whispering Gallery X-Band Power Multiplier

    SBC: Omega-P, Inc.            Topic: 45

    72923-Radio frequency (RF) pulse compression is required to achieve the high peak powers needed for testing accelerator structures and components, and ultimately for driving the accelerator structures. This project will develop a whispering gallery resonator, or coupled pair of resonators, as a passive pulse compressor that can provide efficient peak power multiplication (greater than 4 to 1) at ...
