  1. 3D printing of High Precision Radiation Filters for next generation Cosmic Background (CMB) studies.

    SBC: Obsidian Advanced Manufacturing LLC            Topic: 31h

    The next generation of Cosmic Ray Background detectors require large area filters in the microwave part of the spectrum between 100 to 300 Gigahertz. These filters are essential to the extremely sensitive detection of the cosmic background radiation at the level of one part in a billion and will require precise fabrication of metallic structures on a polymer substrate. These filters will be placed ...

  2. Coordinated Multiscale Modeling and Synthesis of Novel Nanostructured Composite Membranes for Solar Fuels Generation

    SBC: WASATCH MOLECULAR, INC.            Topic: 19b

    Generation of carbon-based liquid fuels from reduction of CO2 using solar energy requires the development of improved membranes that provide good ionic conductivity and mechanical properties while minimizing the crossover of gases and reduction products. Using closely coordinated multiscale modeling, synthesis and characterization studies we propose to investigate and develop novel nanostructured ...

  4. Plasma Catalyst Coupling for Improved Conversion of Methane to Liquids

    SBC: HiFunda, LLC            Topic: 22c

    The discovery of large shale gas reserves in recent years has resulted in the reduction of natural gas price and a need to develop new applications for the available resource. Upgrading shale gas to liquid fuels which are more easily transportable and have greater economic value can result in significant benefits to the US. Coupled with this challenging problem the DOE has a goal of further develo ...

  7. A Subcritical Testbed for Fast Neutron Irradiation of Novel Fuels and Cladding in Fast Reactors

    SBC: Niowave, Inc.            Topic: 26c

    Next generation reactor R&D aims to improve overall safety, efficiency, sustainability, and proliferation resistance for economically viable nuclear energy. New reactor design and fuel development rely on novel materials that are resistant to both radiation damage and corrosive environments. However, American nuclear fuel developers face a serious dilemma: there are no existing domestic fast react ...

  8. Development of High-Q SRF Structures by Nitrogen Doping for Superconducting Electron Linacs

    SBC: Niowave, Inc.            Topic: 29j

    One of the most exciting recent developments in superconducting RF technology has been the discovery of a nitrogen-doping process which can reliably increase the superconducting quality factor of niobium resonators well above 1010 at high frequency (>1 GHz). This process is now well demonstrated in particular for TESLA-style 9-cell cavities at 1.3 GHz. Nitrogen doping is part of the plan for the p ...

  9. Biologically Inspired Ammonia Production with Immobilized Nitrogenase

    SBC: Fulcrum Bioscience, LLC            Topic: 08c

    Logistical shortages of ammonia, coupled with the high cost of new manufacturing plants, >$2BB, leads to lower agricultural output and lost revenue. The current Haber-Bosch process is also energy intensive and consumes ~1% of the total world energy output. Fulcrum Biosciences, FBS, with the University of Utah as subcontractor will develop a bio-electrochemical process that converts air into ammoni ...
