  1. Characterizing Watershed Health Using Heterogenous Data

    SBC: Michigan Aerospace Corporation            Topic: 01b

    In order to better understand and protect watersheds, we must: 1) Collect data characterizing these systems; 2) Analyze these data in an integrated and holistic fashion to characterize the state of the watershed in a meaningful and actionable way; and, 3) Leverage this characterization to build predictive models capable of anticipating the response of a watershed to specific events including, e.g. ...

  2. Development of Tunable, Precision Permanent Magnet Phase Shifter for X-Ray FEL

    SBC: Electron Energy Corporation            Topic: 10a

    In an x-ray free-electron lasers (XFEL), a high quality relativistic electron beam from a linear accelerator traverses an array of undulator magnets to generate a high power x-ray beam by allowing the FEL to reach saturation. In many XFELs, phase shifters haven’t been commonly used or included in their designs. The importance of the phase shifter was recognized only recently. A phase shifter can ...

  3. Large Area Time-of-Flight Detectors for Imaging Science

    SBC: NOVA SCIENTIFIC INCORPORATED            Topic: 17b

    NOVA Scientific, Inc. proposes a Phase I SBIR program to develop, refine, and ultimately to commercialize, a large format 15 cm x 15 cm solid-state cold, thermal, and epithermal neutron imaging detector based on microchannel plates (MCPs). The imaging detector will be fabricated in a self-contained, hermetically sealed image tube, which does not require active vacuum pumping. This large area time- ...

  4. Inorganic Membrane-based Reactive Separation and Reactant Recycle for Direct Synthesis of Dimethyl Carbonate

    SBC: Media and Process Technology Inc.            Topic: 22c

    Dimethyl carbonate (DMC) is a promising green chemical due to its simplicity, versatility, low toxicity, high polarity, low corrosivity, and biodegradability. Further, “direct synthesis” of DMC using CO2 as a reactant offers a pathway forward to effective greenhouse gas reutilization. DMC is one of the most promising organic carbonates in terms of the range of applications.The US EPA has exemp ...

  5. High-Speed ADC for Nuclear Physics Experiments

    SBC: Alphacore, Inc.            Topic: 29b

    Several nuclear physics experiments require accurate timing measurements and transient digitization at high sampling rates, exceeding 1 gigasamples per second (GSPS). To date, only few transient digitizer chips have been developed for this purpose and they are based on storing the analog samples onto long buffers from which they are digitized with low-rate analog-to-digital converters (ADC). These ...

  6. Ultra-low Temperature Cryostat for Application of High Electric Field in a Neutron Beam

    SBC: Janis Research Company, LLC            Topic: 17a

    Janis Research Company LLC proposes to develop an ultra-low temperature system with operation temperatures below 0.4 Kelvin and sample measurement capabilities for application of a high voltage up to 5kV. Upon further integration with an external magnetic field, this will be a unique ultra-low temperature platform to investigate the phases of multi-ferroic quantum materials and materials near a qu ...

  7. Isogeometric Analysis for Nuclear Engineering

    SBC: Coreform LLC            Topic: 03b

    Finite element analysis (FEA) is severely underutilized in the mining industry. The complexity of the physics and the geometry of mining problems is not suitably handled by the faceted mesh descriptions commonly used in other industries, such as automotive and aerospace. Furthermore, the time required to convert computer-aided design (CAD) files and geologic survey data to FEA is prohibitively lon ...

  8. High Energy Micron Scale Pixel Hybrid Detector

    SBC: Farrier Microengineering LLC            Topic: 14a

    Currently available X-ray imaging detector products are limited in resolution, quantum efficiency, and dynamic range, particularly for X-ray energies above 30KeV. The current performance limitations inhibit progress in understanding complex nanoscale structures in materials through diffraction and tomographic imaging techniques. A new, high resolution, direct X-ray detection image sensor will be e ...

  9. High Performance Computing of Completion and Near-Wellbore Erosion

    SBC: Reaction Engineering International            Topic: 21b

    The production from oil and gas wells is strongly affected by the network of fractures made in the reservoir by hydraulic fracturing and pre-existing natural fractures. Hydraulic and other boundary conditions often favor the predominant growth of one fracture at the expense of growing a number of fractures. This biasing worsens due to erosion of the perforations in the casing and surrounding mater ...

  10. Numerical Model Development For Supercritical CO2 Oxy-Combustion

    SBC: COMBUSTION SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: 22d

    Supercritical CO2 (sCO2) power cycles operate at high pressures (300 bar) and high inlet temperatures (700°C), placing the CO2 well above the critical point. Current plans are to operate these devices using natural gas or syngas, burning with oxygen at fairly low combustion temperatures (1100 °C). However, there are gaps in the understanding of oxy-fuel combustion with CO2 under supercritical co ...
