  1. Laser Sensor for Unattended, and Precise Determination of Calcium and Strontium in Seawater

    SBC: CHEMLED TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: 861X

    The use of unattended floats, platforms, and drones addresses the immense challenge of cost-effectively characterizing the chemistry of the oceans. The proposed program strengthens this capability by demonstrating the feasibility of Laser Fluorescence Enhanced Flame Spectrophotometry (LFEFS) for the simultaneous and high precision measurement of calcium and strontium. These are key elements of the ...

  2. Temperature-Emissivity-Separation TES) with Combined Fluid Flow Hyperspectral Radiation Simulations

    SBC: Thermoanalytics, Inc.            Topic: 01c

    An important tool in the regulation and monitoring of nuclear proliferation is remote sensing involving the analysis of thermal hyperspectral images. The hyperspectral radiance of a suspected target can be decomposed separated) into components related to the targets spectral emissions, reflections of its surroundings, and atmospheric effects using Temperature- Emissivity-Separation analysis. ...

  3. Smart GaN-Based Inverters for Grid-tied Energy Storage Systems

    SBC: InnoCit, LLC            Topic: 10b

    Battery storage systems are the backbone of the future gird systems. These systems provide distributed energy storage capabilities for smoothening the load profile and coping with generation and load power fluctuations. By incorporating these resources into the electrical grid, voltage stability and overall reliability of the grid will improve. Furthermore, these resources compensate for fluctuati ...

  4. Advanced Low-Cost Aluminized Coatings for Metal Combustors

    SBC: Novoreach Technologies LLC            Topic: 12b

    Biomass is a unique renewable energy resource that can be converted to power, carbon-based fuels, or chemicals. However, bioenergy generation using biomass introduces a number of aggressive species such as alkali halide salts into process environments, resulting in accelerated degradation of combustor components. To achieve cost effective production of bioenergy and bioproducts, a low cost protect ...

  5. Non-Fouling Polymeric Membrane for Algae Dewatering

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 12c

    Currently there is great interest in the development of renewable fuels, such as biodiesel. Algae is one source of oil feedstock for biodiesel production that has been extensively investigated in recent years. Unlike vegetable oil crops, such as soybeans, algae grows very fast, can be grown on land of limited agricultural value, and can be grown in seawater or wastewater which are not suitable f ...

  6. Onboard implementation of an ultra-compact hydrogen-generator for efficiency and emissions benefits in IC engines

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: 17c

    A central tenet of U.S. energy policy is the achievement of high gasoline mileage which would substantially advance the U.S. and DOE missions of improved energy efficiency, increased energy independence, and mitigation of climate change. One promising path forward for increasing mileage is to use reformed fuel to improve engine combustion stability for greater efficiency and lower emissions, inclu ...

  7. Integrated Chemically Resistant Membrane Contactors and Ionic Liquid Sorbants for Carbon Dioxide Concentration

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 20g

    Fossil fuels currently supply more than 85% of the worlds energy needs and combustion of these fuels is the source of 80% of all anthropogenic emissions of carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas and is considered to be a major contributor to global warming. There is considerable interest in capturing carbon dioxide at large sources, electric power plants, and sequestering the gas. H ...

  8. High Performance Self-supporting Zeolite Membranes for Carbon Capture

    SBC: Novoreach Technologies LLC            Topic: 20h

    It is widely accepted that increasing atmospheric concentrations of CO2 are likely to accelerate the rate of climate change. With anticipated increases in fossil fuel consumption around the world, it is projected that the atmospheric concentration of CO2 will continue to increase in the foreseeable future, unless significant progresses are made to reduce or capture CO2 emissions. Zeolite membranes ...

    SBC: omega-p r&d, Inc.            Topic: 26a

    For future progress in high energy physics, a multi-TeV linear accelerator is desired to explore the energy frontier. But RF breakdown is a major hurdle preventing accelerator structures from reaching high gradients. The successful completion of the project proposed here will allow development of a novel high gradient accelerator structure with low RF breakdown rate and high RF-to-beam efficiency. ...
