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. High-Efficiency, Ultra-High Pressure Electrolysis with Direct Linkage to Photovoltaic Arrays

    SBC: Avalence, Llc            Topic: 39d

    75661S The production of hydrogen fuel from renewable resources such as solar and wind in distributed-generation, small-scale applications would provide an environmentally-benign, truly sustainable transportation fuel supply. But before this can be achieved, the hydrogen generating systems must become as reliable as home appliances (e.g., central air conditioning or furnaces), which require only ...

  2. Development of Marine Turbine Using a Direct Drive Permanent Magnet Generator

    SBC: Distributed Energy Systems            Topic: 28c

    79729S Ocean currents constitute a potentially enormous renewable energy resource; however, existing technologies for capturing this energy are only in the prototype stage, are small in scale (less than 1 megawatt), and are not grid-connected. Although there is a considerable overlap in technology with the more mature field of wind energy, new robust technologies will have to be developed that ar ...

  3. Sectional Permanent Magnet Generator and Power Electronics For Multi-Megawatt Direct Drive Wind Turbines

    SBC: Distributed Energy Systems            Topic: 29

    79659S As direct drive wind turbines increase in size, the diameter of their generators increases to the point where it is no longer possible to ship them as a single unit. While some companies have addressed this issue by using wound rotor generators that can be assembled on site, this approach suffers from the inherent lower efficiency and reliability of the wound rotor technology. To date, no ...

  4. A Novel Growth Technique for Large Diameter AlN Single Crystal

    SBC: Fairfield Crystal Technology            Topic: 22

    78072S III-V nitride-based, high brightness, UV and visible light emitting diodes (LEDs) are of a great interest for general illumination, but the low light output efficiencies of current high brightness LEDs are still inadequate. A key material issue preventing the achievement of higher light output efficiency in LEDs is the poor crystalline quality of the nitride epitaxial layers that result fr ...

  5. Quantitative In-Situ TEM Nanoindentation Instrument

    SBC: HYSITRON, INCORPORATED            Topic: 30b

    75333S Nanoindentation is the primary technique for assessing the nanomechanical behavior of small volumes of materials. With this technique, the force required to produce a given displacement into a sample by a sharp diamond tip is measured, and the hardness of the material being tested is determined analyzing the force-displacement curve. However, the microstructural origins of the measured me ...

  6. Surface Films to Suppress Field Emission in High-Power Microwave Components

    SBC: Omega-P, Inc.            Topic: 07b

    75119-The achievement of high microwave fields in next-generation high-energy particle accelerators will require, among other things, that field emission and breakdown be held to within strict upper limits. One means to achieve this goal is to devise rugged thin-film coatings for vulnerable copper surfaces, providing a higher work function than copper alone. This project will evaluate a variety ...

  7. High-Power Ferroelectric Switch for an X-Band RF Pulse Compressor

    SBC: Omega-P, Inc.            Topic: 06b

    75185S High energy electron linear accelerators use microwave pulse compression to produce the high peak power levels needed to obtain high acceleration gradients. Present passive pulse compressors produce a power gain of about 3:1, in return for a 4:1 compression in pulse width. Active pulse compressors are predicted to have a capability for much larger compression ratios, with high efficienci ...

  8. Ferroelectric Switch for a High-Power Ka-Band Active Pulse Compressor

    SBC: Omega-P, Inc.            Topic: 37

    78276S Sources of high-peak-power millimeter-wave radiation are needed for development and testing of components and structures for a future multi-TeV electron-positron collider. A pulse compressor must generate the 200 MW pulses needed to develop structures for the CERN two-beam accelerator, or for a similar high-gradient millimeter-wave accelerator. This project will develop high-power switch ...

  9. High-Power Ka-Band Window and Resonant Ring

    SBC: Omega-P, Inc.            Topic: 37b

    78728 A stand-alone 200 MW radio frequency (RF) test station is needed for developing accelerator structures and components for a future high-gradient multi-TeV collider, such as CLIC. In addition, a high-power RF window will be needed to isolate the test station from a structure element under test. This project will develop such a window for use in the frequency range 30-35 GHz, along with a h ...

  10. 20-MW Magnicon for ILC

    SBC: Omega-P, Inc.            Topic: 37b

    78413SThe international high-energy physics community has decided to develop superconducting radio frequency (RF) technolgy to be the basis for the International Linear Collider, a 0.5 - 1.0 TeV electron-positron collider that is intended to complement the Large Hadron Collider. The 1.3 GHz RF power needed to drive this accelerator is now planned to be supplied by 600-1200, 10-MW peak power multi ...
