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. 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 ...

  2. Multigas Sensor for Waste Monitoring

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 06c

    78550S Storage of radioactive wastes at many DOE facilities generates hazardous and explosive gases. Sensitive and selective monitoring of these gases is required to ensure the safe operation of storage facilities. This project will develop technology for multiple gas measurement using laser absorption spectroscopy. The sensor approach will be automated, self-calibrated, and self-checking; wil ...

  3. Open Path, Aircraft-Based Ammonia Instrument using a Quantum Cascade Laser and Singular Valued Decomposition Algorithms

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 03b

    79517S The largest uncertainty in global climate change is the effects of aerosols, and it is critical that aerosol processes are well quantified in order to assess anthropogenic influences on climate. Ammonia is an important species in aerosol particle nucleation, growth, composition, and acidity. Unfortunately, fast ammonia measurements are scarce due to difficulty in sampling, especially fro ...

  4. Sensitive SQUID-Based Detectors of the Magnetization of Polarized Nuclei

    SBC: STAR CRYOELECTRONICS LLC            Topic: 16a

    75308S Fundamental research in nuclear physics, such as the search for the neutron electric dipole moment (EDM), requires advances in detector systems and instrumentation. In particular, advanced detector systems are needed to enable precision measurements of the magnetization of polarized nuclei in noisy environments. This project will develop a novel magnetic detector system, based on ultra-se ...

  5. Highly Polarized Photocathodes Via Minimization of Spin Relaxation

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: 36c

    79431S Negative-electron-affinity (NEA) photocathodes, which produce polarized electrons, are a vital component of electron accelerators. The Next Linear Collider (NLC) will require a polarized electron beam intensity at least 20 times greater than that which can be produced with strained GaAs, which is used in the current generation of photocathodes. In addition, the degree of electron polariz ...

  6. Electron Cloud Diagnostic for Quadrupole Magnets

    SBC: TECHSOURCE, INC.            Topic: 05b

    75153S Electron cloud effects, including electron cloud induced instabilities, are a critical technical risk for the next generation of high intensity, accelerator-based research facilities. In particular, new diagnostics are required to observe electron cloud formation and trapping in quadrupole magnets, in order to test theories and simulations of cloud buildup and beam dynamics effects induce ...

  7. Optical Carbon Dioxide Field Isotope Ratiometer

    SBC: VISTA PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: 08

    78093S Anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions are best quantified by determining the carbon dioxide isotope ratios. The precision required represents a challenge to optical measurement techniques under field deployment conditions. This project will develop a compact, rugged, mid-infrared spectrometer capable of determining isotopic carbon dioxide ratios at atmospherically relevant levels. In P ...

  8. Inexpensive High-Performance Carbon Dioxide Field Analyzer

    SBC: VISTA PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: 08b

    78031S Understanding global warming requires continuous field measurements of carbon dioxide concentrations. High-precision measurements of at least one part in 3000 are required. However, these high-performance instruments must meet stringent cost objectives. A simple, rugged, photoacoustic spectrometer could provide the required measurement precision at DOE¿s cost target. This project wi ...

  9. In Situ Optical Monitor for Waste Tank Gases

    SBC: VISTA PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: 06

    78044S Department of Energy waste storage tanks require continuous monitoring of species in solid, liquid, and gaseous phases. Gas phase species of interest include ammonia, methane, and carbon dioxide. This project will develop in situ optical sensors that will selectively and sensitively detect these species along with the moisture in the waste tank headspace. The sensors will take advantage ...

  10. Finishing Process to Improve Interfacial Bonding in SiC/BMI Composites

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N05025

    High-temperature polymer matrix composites (PMCs) are desired for the aggressive environments encountered in many aerospace and military applications. These have required new blends of materials properties in the composite fiber and matrix. As polyimide resins have been improved, the thermo-oxidative stability (TOS) of the carbon fibers typically used as reinforcements have become a limiting fac ...
