  1. A Modular, Skid-Mounted Biomass Pyrolysis Unit

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: 01

    Political, economic, and environmental considerations require that the national dependence on petroleum-based transportation fuels, especially imported oil, be reduced by accelerating the development of domestic renewable alternatives. The United States has the potential to generate, sustainably, about 1.3 billion dry tons of biomass per year, and bio-oil derived from this renewable feedstock cou ...

  2. Biobattery / Biogenerator for In-Vivo Application

    SBC: Connecticut Analytical Corporation            Topic: 51c

    A growing number of electronic devices are being implanted in patients to treat a wide range of maladies. While these devices are becoming increasingly sophisticated and complex, they are powered by conventional chemical batteries with limited operating life and power output. These conventional batteries are essentially self-contained electrochemical reactors, and the total power they can produc ...

  3. Development of a Highly Efficient Solid State Electrochemical Hydrogen Compressor

    SBC: FuelCell Energy, Inc.            Topic: 03

    With the depletion of fossil fuel reserves and a global requirement to develop a sustainable economy, hydrogen-based energy is becoming increasingly important. In the transportation sector, on-board storage of pure hydrogen may be required at pressures up to 10,000 psi, with compression of the hydrogen fuel ranging to 12,000 psi or even higher. However, the level of maturity of current hydrogen ...

  4. Novel Surface Modification Method for Ultrasupercritical Coal-Fired Boilers

    SBC: INFRAMAT CORP            Topic: 16

    The efficiency of conventional pulverized coal power plant cycles is strongly related to operating temperature and pressure. Ultrasupercritical (USC) coal-fired boilers are being developed to operate with higher steam temperatures and steam pressures. However, the increasing temperatures and corrosive environment cause more severe oxidation and corrosion in USC boiler components. New surface mo ...

  5. Development of Automated Software Program for the Analysis of Parkinson's Diesease Dopamine Transporter Scans

    SBC: Molecular Neuroimaging, L.l.c.            Topic: 51

    This project will develop a fast, automated, and accurate software processing package that will objectively yield striatal quantitative uptake values for evaluating Parkinson's disease (PD) diagnosis and progression. This fully automated, Objective Striatal Analysis (OSA) package will evaluate subjects referred for SPECT neuroreceptor imaging studies, with a sensitivity and specificity higher tha ...

  6. High Intensity Proton Accelerator

    SBC: Omega-P, Inc.            Topic: 27

    High-intensity GeV proton beams are required for neutron production, nuclear waste transmutation, energy production in sub-critical nuclear reactors, medical proton therapy, and radioisotope production. Conventional designs for the proton accelerator utilize a several-hundred-meter-long superconducting linear accelerator for this purpose. This project will design and demonstrate a much shorter r ...

  7. Multi-MW 22.8 GHz Harmonic Multiplier

    SBC: Omega-P, Inc.            Topic: 32

    High-power radio frequency (RF) sources with frequencies between 17 and 34 GHz are required to achieve high acceleration gradients (of the order of 150 MV/m) in warm (room temperature) accelerator structures, so as to allow the design of a future multi-TeV electron-positron collider. This project will develop a 50-MW phase-stable source at 22.8 GHz as a second-harmonic frequency multiplier, using ...

  8. Fast Ferroelectric L-Band Tuner

    SBC: Omega-P, Inc.            Topic: 27

    An Energy Recovery Linac for the electron cooler of the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider at Brookhaven National Laboratory is now being developed to provide a necessary luminosity upgrade for the collider. But a new means is needed to stabilize the linac on a rapid time scale against fluctuations in beam loading and microphonics ¿ current ferrite tuners are not fast enough for this application. ...

  9. Fast Ferroelectric L-Band Tuner for ILC Cavities

    SBC: Omega-P, Inc.            Topic: 37

    The international accelerator community is focused on the development of the next electron-positron collider, the International Linear Collider (ILC), which will be based on superconducting radio frequency (RF) technology. This project will develop a fast ferroelectric tuner for ILC cavities. The tuner will permit adjustments, during each RF pulse of cavity coupling, to compensate for unavoidabl ...

  10. Two-Channel Dielectric Wakefield Accelerator

    SBC: Omega-P, Inc.            Topic: 38

    A rectangular dielelectric wake field electron accelerator would have attributes not found in other wake field accelerators. These attributes include: (1) continuous coupling between one channel, in which drive bunches travel, and a second channel, in which accelerated bunches travel, without the need for discrete transfer structures; (2) large step-up or transformer ratio in wake field amplitud ...
