  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 ...
