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. Additive-Manufactured Superconductor Phase Shifters

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 10a

    Statement of the problem: If high‐quality phase shifters can be made rapidly and inexpensively, it will enable substantial improvements in free electron lasers (FELs) performance and benefit the exploration of atomic and molecular science. X‐ray FELs now use permanent magnetic undulators to produce x‐ray light by wiggling high‐ energy bunches of electrons in alternating magnetic fields, wi ...

  2. Micron-scale Direct-detection X-ray Detectors

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 14a

    Techniques such as high‐energy x‐ray microscopy and Bragg coherent diffraction imaging are being developed. These techniques provide unique structural information at the micro‐ and nano‐scale for the discovery of novel materials. However, due to the limitations of suitable detectors, these techniques are severely limited when applied at high x‐ray energies (> 30 keV). In particular, thes ...

  3. TAU Analytica: Bringing Advanced Data Analytics to Performance Analysis

    SBC: ParaTools INC            Topic: 03b

    Powerful tools, including the TAU Performance SystemQR , exist to collect, visualize, and analyze performance data about HPC applications. However, usability issues with traditional HPC programming languages, li- braries, and frameworks are pushing users to newer, higher-level frameworks for specialized purposes, such as deep learning and data analytics. HPC systems, including leadership Departmen ...

  4. Solar Modules: Low Cost Manufacturing

    SBC: Nextc Corporation            Topic: 12f

    Solar power is one of the fastest-growing renewable energy markets. Over the last twenty years, solar photovoltaics has gone from being a field of scientific study to one of commercial interest. Driving this change and solar adoption worldwide has been the decreasing cost per watt of solar power. While the drop in cost per watt has been largely driven by increasing panel efficiency, decreasing mat ...

  5. Biomimicry-based MHK for remote communities

    SBC: BLADE RUNNER, LLC            Topic: 14a

    Microgrids are essential for developing, sustaining and growing Remote Communities which have been historically powered by diesel generation for reliability. Renewable energy sources, primarily sun and wind, have been gaining strength in offering local and economical alternatives of power to remote microgrid. Nonetheless, their intermittency brings reliability at high storage costs and as typicall ...

  6. Intelligently Manufactured Homes with Factory Integrated Solar Systems Delivered to the Build Site Enabling Dramatic Soft Cost Reductions

    SBC: PHASE3 PHOTOVOLTAICS INC            Topic: 12e

    Manufactured and modular homes have roughly 8% of the US population living in them and make up 11% of the new, single-family home starts each year. This fraction is even higher on rural and tribal lands. The industry reported a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.86% in 2018. And yet, solar penetration in this market is negligible, mostly for financing qualification factors. Phase3 Photovoltai ...

  7. Mobile In-Situ Imaging of Photovoltaic Modules

    SBC: TAU SCIENCE CORPORATION            Topic: 13c

    Solar module warranties are typically 25 years or longer, a striking reliability requirement that allows only a slow performance degradation with time. There are very few products built today that are required to exhibit this type of longevity. In the past decade, to improve the quality of their products, high-performance cell manufacturers developed and implemented various inline process control ...

  8. Precision Nanoparticles for High Performance Devices

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 06d

    Nanoparticle synthesis chemistry has developed tremendously over the last several decades, achieving great control over size, shape, and composition. This has led to much greater understanding of material optical, electronic, and surface properties, and myriad applications, from solar cells and photodetectors to medical therapy. Currently, processes for building nanoparticles are largely based on ...

  9. IFS for Dark Matter Characterization

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 28g

    The high‐energy physics (HEP) community has identified integral field spectroscopy (IFS) as an area that could dramatically leverage investments in current and future sky surveys for the study of dark energy. Many lines of evidence now agree that most mass in the universe is in the form of dark matter, which interacts mainly via the force of gravity. Identification and detailed phenomenology of ...

  10. Compressive 3D imaging spectrometer

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 04a

    Optical sensing for nuclear detonation detection involves space‐based detection within the visible wavelength. Emerging optical detectors will leverage unique diffractive optics to help enhance and discriminate signals of interest from other background emitters. Because of the precision required to achieve these objectives, innovative designs and manufacturing methods are required to benefit Nuc ...
