The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Advanced Analysis of Nuclear Waste Storage Cask Health


    At the present, the United States does not have a designated disposal site for used nuclear fuel — the nation therefore faces the prospect of extended long‐term storage (i.e., >60 years) and deferred transportation of used fuel at operating and decommissioned nuclear power plant sites. We need to augment nuclear waste canister Ageing Management programs with Modeling capability that is compreh ...

  2. Stable Perovskite Core-shell Nanocrystals as Down-Converting Phosphors for Solid State Lighting

    SBC: PHOSPHORTECH            Topic: 14a

    Colloidal perovskite quantum dots (QDs) or nanocrystals (NCs) with structure of CsPbX3 (X = Cl, Br, I) are promising materials as down-converting phosphors due to their high quantum yield up to >90%, extremely narrow emission band ~15-30 nm, and tunable emission wavelengths of ~410−700 nm via size or composition control. Compared to other QD materials, the optical and electronic properties of pe ...

  4. Multiscale Modeling of Supercritical Combustion with Two-Level Simulation on Adaptive Beamlets

    SBC: Symplectic Research Inc            Topic: 17d

    Supercritical carbon dioxide (sCO2) based power cycles is a promising technological venue that can potentially increase the power cycle efficiency in power plant operations. In addition to higher efficiency, the direct-fired sCO2 cycle, in particular, offers other benefits including the facilitation of CO2 capture and sequestration, and potentially simpler designs. In order to develop the next-gen ...

  6. Advanced Analysis of Nuclear Waste Storage Health


    The potential longevity and number of dry storage systems employed for storage of used nuclear fuel necessitate a deliberate consideration of long term data management approaches. Necessary considerations include approaches to ensure archival of data over multiple centuries and data fusion methods to facilitate decision making based on multiple streams of information. Also important is establishin ...

  7. Plasmonic-enhanced High Light Extraction Phosphor Sheets for Solid State Lighting

    SBC: PHOSPHORTECH            Topic: 09c

    Solid state lighting (SSL) is a fast growing technology, which is starting to replace conventional lighting products such as fluorescent and incandescent bulbs. While the current efficiency of some commercial SSL products has surpassed those of most traditional lighting, it is still far below what the technology is theoretically capable of. The main reasons are attributed to poor light extraction ...

  8. Ceramic-Metal Joining by a Novel Flame Processing

    SBC: Engi-Mat Co.            Topic: 15d

    Economical and efficient heat transfer technologies applicable to high-temperature, high-pressure conditions are a common requirement for advanced fossil energy and other thermal based power generation systems, in which heat is transferred from a heat source into a power cycle working fluid by means of heat exchange components. In addition to high temperature, these components experience high pres ...

  9. A Renewable Energy Decision Support Data Platform for Biomass Pathways on Hadoop

    SBC: Ellison Laboratories            Topic: 01c

    The Energy Independence and Security ACT (EISA 2007) states that by 2020, 21 billion gallons of cellulosic biofuel, biomass-based diesel, or other forms of advanced biofuels should be consumed as part of the US fuel demand. Many questions arise as to how this can be accomplished. How will we produce the biomass required to meet these targets? What biomass yield can one expect at a particular locat ...

  10. Hybrid Down-Converting Structures for Solid State Lighting

    SBC: PHOSPHORTECH            Topic: 07a

    Achieving higher luminous efficacy in phosphor converted light emitting diodes (pcLED) requires breakthroughs in down-converting materials that provide high conversion efficiency, tunable narrow bandwidth emission, and temperature/chemical stability. To achieve these goals, PhosphorTech (PTC) and its partners propose the development of high performance hybrid inorganic down-converting (HID) materi ...
