  1. Single Photon Frequency Convertor with High Quantum Efficiency

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: 06a

    The overall goal of this SBIR is to increase the accessibility and range of emerging all-fiber quantum networks by significantly advancing the state-of-the-art in optical quantum networks using fully integrated, single-pass, quantum frequency conversion (QFC). Fiber-based quantum networks, to take advantage of low losses and the wide range of existing network components and infrastructure, are exp ...

  2. Plasma Electrolytic Oxidation (PEO) Coatings as Superior Thermal Barriers for Engine Pistons

    SBC: IBC Materials & Technologies, LLC            Topic: 13c

    Automobiles (cars and trucks for instance) are the predominant mode of transportation in the United States. These vehicles are powered by internal combustion engines that consume fossil fuels such as gasoline. Improving the efficiency of internal combustion engines is an ongoing challenge of enormous impact to energy consumption in the world. In order to improve engine efficiency and thus fuel eco ...

  3. Pole-based solar mounting and tracking system for use in cattle production

    SBC: FarmAfield Labs, LLC            Topic: 12e

    Rural areas in the United States have under-developed solar power capabilities relative to urban areas due to challenges matching energy demand centers with underutilized land and consequent cost challenges related to smaller installations that lack economies of scale. This project addresses these problems by proposing solar installations that operate synergistically with livestock production oper ...

  4. Micro-Pulse DIAL for Atmospheric Water Vapor Profiling

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: 25b

    Water vapor plays a key role in Earth’s climate and weather patterns. Accurate, high resolution measurements of the water vapor vertical profiles in a region have been found to significantly improve the numerical weather prediction models’ short-term forecasts, precipitation forecasts, as well as severe weather forecasts. However, current measurement techniques provide very coarse resolution i ...

  5. Silicon Carbide (SiC) Foam for Molten Salt Containment in CSP-Gen3 Systems

    SBC: TOUCHSTONE RESEARCH LABORATORY LTD (INC)            Topic: 18c

    Phase I analysis results show that in order to potentially meet the round trip and exergetic efficiencies as required by the Department of Energy’s Solar Energy Technology Office, for thermal energy storage in concentrated solar plants, a composite of porous silicon carbide and molten salt phase change material is needed.For a 100 megawatt (electrical) concentrated solar power plant with 12 hour ...

  7. Hydrothermal Catalysis Flow Process to Convert Brown Grease into Green Gasoline, Green Jet and Green Diesel Fuels

    SBC: SARTEC CORPORATION            Topic: 08a

    The primary challenges for creating renewable fuels are the ability to process inexpensive non-food feedstocks into biofuels that meet all quality specification, perform indistinguishably from petroleum-based fuels and are compatible with current infrastructure.Our Phase I project demonstrated the feasibility of producing biofuels from waste greases using a novel hydrothermal, continuous-flow cata ...

  8. Development of a Rapid Monitoring System for Detection of Pathogens in Marine Aquaculture

    SBC: InnovaPrep, LLC            Topic: 836

    pathogens in marine aquaculture waters. Phase II research will look to improve sample concentration, cell lysis, and DNA purification techniques that were developed in Phase I. More specifically, optimization of the prototype lysis/elution fluid will be further developed for cell lysis using BSL-1 organisms, Vibrio harveyi, a surrogate for pathogenic Vibrio ssp. Techniques will be developed to ove ...
