  1. Transformation of carbon emissions to high-value products through a two-step electrochemical platform

    SBC: LECTROLYST LLC            Topic: G

    Carbon dioxide utilization can help reduce carbon emissions, but gaps remain in the value chain from initial capture to high-value products. Lectrolyst LLC will develop an electrochemical platform centered on selective two-step conversion of CO2 to acetic acid and ethylene, to fill this need. Preliminary life cycle assessment and techno-economic analyses indicate ~200 million metric tons of CO2 em ...

  3. Novel Proton Alignment Aid for Isotope Production

    SBC: Applied Diamond, Inc.            Topic: 35a

    Accelerator produced radioisotopes are used every day for medical imaging techniques such as positron emission tomography PET). Importantly, research into the development of new isotopes suitable for this technique has expanded the biological characteristics which can be studied using this non-invasive method. This technique relies on robust production of these isotopes for the expansion of this e ...

  4. Detector with Adjustable Aperture for Electron Beam Monitoring

    SBC: Applied Diamond, Inc.            Topic: 33f

    Recently new high energy electron cooling beam projects, LEReC and CeC, were proposed at BNL as part of a transition to a future electron-ion collider EIC). Both projects are based on new principles and aimed at the improvement of luminosity for EIC operations. Efficient electron cooling of hadron beams requires a high quality high power electron beam with tight parameters energy and space traject ...

  5. Large-Area Visible and UV Metal-Oxide Avalanche Photodiodes for Cherenkov Detectors

    SBC: Qrona Technologies LLC            Topic: 34a

    For many decades photomultiplier tubes PMTs) have been the main technology for sensitive and low noise detection of photons in many high energy physics experiments. However, compared to solid-state photodetectors, PMTs are bulky, fragile, and need to be shielded from high magnetic fields and high pressures, which severely limit their application for future DOE projects. Hence, there is a need for ...

  6. Ultra-Clean Graphene Coating for Robust Operation of High Brightness Photocathodes

    SBC: Qrona Technologies LLC            Topic: 09b

    The next generation of free electron lasers FELs) and the small-scale electrons accelerators designed to perform ultra-fast microscopy and diffraction experiment rely on the production of new electron guns with ultrahigh brightness cathodes. High-efficiency semiconductor e.g., GaN-based) photocathodes have been studied for this application, and there have been some advances in reducing the mean tr ...

  9. 4D Rheo-SANS Sample Environment for Soft Matter, Biology and Materials Processing

    SBC: STF Technologies LLC            Topic: 17a

    The US scientific and industrial research communities in the broad areas of soft matter (i.e., polymers, complex fluids, nano and colloidal solutions, coatings and inks) and biological materials (i.e., drug delivery, hydrogels, tissue engineering) need, but lack, the ability to effectively study these important materials under flow conditions. Shear fields are widely used as much to process and co ...

  10. Upcycling Ocean-based Plastics for Sustainable Feedstock Supply Chain

    SBC: RiKarbon, Inc.            Topic: 07b

    Plastics are ubiquitous in modern life. Global production of plastics (polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), polystyrene (PS), polyvinylchloride (PVC), and others) has reached about 400 million tons annually. Total plastics production has increased by 36% in the past decade and is estimated to grow to 700 million tons in 2030. The National Center for Ecological A ...
