  3. 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 ...

  6. Large-area, low-voltage, GaN-based avalanche photodiode arrays for application in harsh environments.

    SBC: LIGHTWAVE PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: 28a

    For several decades photomultiplier tubes (PMTs) have been the main technology for sensitive and low noise detection of photons in many high energy physics experiments. However, compared to solid-state photodetectors, PMTs are bulky, fragile, expensive, and need to be shielded from high magnetic fields and high pressures, which severely limit their application for future DOE projects. Hence, there ...

  7. Micro Ion Spectrometer for Fusion Plasmas Boundary Measurements


    As magnetically confined plasmas progress towards ignition and very long pulse experiments, the physics of the pedestal and diverter regions have become increasingly important. Measurements of electron density, electron temperature, fluctuation levels, impurity content in the plasma edge, and heat loads on plasma facing components in the diverter are readily obtained with a variety of diagnostics. ...

  8. Hierarchical Zeolite Catalysts for Renewable Surfactants Platform

    SBC: Sironix Renewables, LLC            Topic: 09d

    Current catalytic routes to surfactants used in the $12 billion cleaning products industry are energy intensive and inefficient, producing molecules with limited function and high energy cost. There exists an opportunity to significantly reduce the energy intensity of laundry detergents production and transportation through the design of a hierarchical catalyst material that can be used to precise ...
