  1. Nanoporous Ceramic Ion Exchange Membranes in Non-Aqueous Redox Flow Batteries

    SBC: Membrion, Inc.            Topic: 19a

    Replacement of on-demand fossil fuels with intermittent renewable energy technologies such as solar cells and wind turbines is not possible without grid-scale energy storage. Redox flow batteries are a safe, scalable and long-lasting solution to this problem but two components, the membrane & electrolyte, accounts for more than 60% of the battery cost which limits market penetration. New low-cost ...

  2. Geophysical System for Fluid Flow and Fracture Imaging

    SBC: Hydrogeophysics Inc            Topic: 21d

    This project seeks to establish new geophysical and computational methods to image fluid migration through induced and natural hard rock fracture systems. Fluid flow imaging of fracture systems can be used to help eliminate irrelevant microfracture events and establish production borehole connectivity to induced fractures. A few existing microseismic techniques attempt to employ fluid flow meterin ...

  3. In-situ Transmission Electron Microscopy Characterization of Electrochemical Processes in Solid-state Energy Storage Devices with Air Sensitive Materials

    SBC: Hummingbird Precision Machine Inc.            Topic: 15d

    Fundamental scientific advances are needed to create breakthrough materials that will improve the performance of electrical and energy storage devices. Over the last decade in- situ transmission electron microscopy (TEM) has been used to characterize these materials in devices at resolutions down to the atomic level. Importantly, this can also be done at the same time that the devices are operatin ...

  4. Cryogenic Temperature Controlled Electrical Biasing In-situ TEM Sample Platform

    SBC: Hummingbird Precision Machine Inc.            Topic: 15d

    Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) is primary characterization method used to determine nanoscale features and local internal structure of materials. However, conventional TEM observations are usually performed under conditions different from a material’s actual working environment. If electrical biasing signals can be applied to the sample then the relationship between structural properties ...

  5. Switched-Field Surface NMR for Enhanced Detection andResolution of Shallow Groundwater

    SBC: Vista Clara Inc.            Topic: 24c

    This proposal addresses the challenge of mapping groundwater and hydrogeologic parameters in the subsurface, with a focus on improving sensitivity and spatial resolution for shallow groundwater targets. We will apply imaging methodologies at the core of medical MRI to efficiently map shallow groundwater and hydrogeologic properties at improved resolution. Conventional surface NMR has been proven a ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. High Voltage Solid-state Trigger for HEDP Applications

    SBC: Eagle Harbor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 25a

    Precision triggering of pulsed power is critically important for the study of high energy density plasma physics at experiments like the Z Machine located at Sandia National Laboratories. The current trigger generators used at Sandia are marginally reliable and have a long delivery time from their manufacturer due to the thyratron inside, and there is concern about the long-term availability of th ...

  10. 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 ...
