  1. Stable Perovskite Core-shell Nanocrystals as Down-Converting Phosphors for Solid State Lighting

    SBC: PHOSPHORTECH            Topic: 14a

    Colloidal perovskite quantum dots (QDs) or nanocrystals (NCs) with structure of CsPbX3 (X = Cl, Br, I) are promising materials as down-converting phosphors due to their high quantum yield up to >90%, extremely narrow emission band ~15-30 nm, and tunable emission wavelengths of ~410−700 nm via size or composition control. Compared to other QD materials, the optical and electronic properties of pe ...

  2. Advanced Analysis of Nuclear Waste Storage Cask Health


    At the present, the United States does not have a designated disposal site for used nuclear fuel — the nation therefore faces the prospect of extended long‐term storage (i.e., >60 years) and deferred transportation of used fuel at operating and decommissioned nuclear power plant sites. We need to augment nuclear waste canister Ageing Management programs with Modeling capability that is compreh ...

  3. Wireless Sensors for In-Situ Dry Cask Storage Monitoring

    SBC: EngeniusMicro, LLC            Topic: 21b

    Embedded sensors are needed to monitor conditions in high-temperature industrial and power generation equipment. Existing sensor technology is limited by electronics and materials used to manufacture the sensors or by interrogation range in these environments. Developing sensors to overcome both temperature and range limitations would improve process control and efficiency by enabling access to da ...

  4. Advanced Technologies for Discrete-Parts Manufacturing

    SBC: Softwear Automation, Inc.            Topic: DLA09001

    A completely automatic, cost-effective, production of garments and other sewn items can be achieved. A novel approach that depends heavily on computing, high performance servo systems, and machine vision has been demonstrated. This proposal will lead to a the most critical element of such automation, a completely automatic sewing machine that will sew arbitrary but controlled paths in the two ...

  5. Thin Robust Electrical Insulator for High Field HTS Magnets

    SBC: Engi-Mat Co.            Topic: 62d

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project is proposed to address high temperature superconductor insulation to help improve stability and quench protection. Most importantly stability will be increased so that the power level at which quench occurs is greatly increased. Quench is the rapid, unintended transition from superconducting to normal conducting. It is a consequence of a faul ...

  6. Recovery Act- Scale-Up of Nanopowder Manufacturing Via Cost-Effective, Low Carbon-Footprint Process

    SBC: Engi-Mat Co.            Topic: 09b

    Although nanomaterials technologies are expected to revolutionize energy storage and energy conversion applications by enabling high performance devices such as batteries, supercapacitors, photovoltaic cells, solid-state lighting and lasers, cost-effective processes to produce these materials have been slow to develop. There is a dire need for the establishment of low-cost nanomaterials manufactu ...

  7. Nanotechnology-Based Condition Monitoring Sensors for Generation IV Electrical Insulation Systems

    SBC: Polymer Aging Concepts Inc            Topic: 66a

    Insulation system degradation resulting in component failure represents a significant contribution to reliability and cost issues facing the nuclear power industry. For example, the Electric Power Research Institute found that 37% of motor failures were due to winding failures, many of which involve failure of the insulation system. Although there are a number of visual, tactile or electrical test ...

  8. Recovery Act- Scale-Up of Nanopowder Manufacturing Via Cost-Effective, Low Carbon-Footprint Process

    SBC: Engi-Mat Co.            Topic: 09b

    In order to commercialize high-performance nanomaterials-enabled energy devices such as batteries, super-capacitors, photovoltaics, catalysts and lasers, there is a dire need for a low-cost, energy-efficient nanomaterials manufacturing process with a low-carbon footprint. Development of nanomaterials production technologies that meet this need, will contribute to the resurgence of the US manufactu ...

  9. Recovery Act- Real-Time Continuous Monitoring of Flare Combustion Efficiency and Emissions

    SBC: Argos Intelligence, LLC            Topic: 05b

    There is currently no satisfactory solutions for real-time, continuous monitoring of are combustion efficiency and emissions. Since emission inventories are the foundation for efficiency controlling pollution's harmful effects, it is important to determine the combustion efficiency as well as the gas compositions and concentrations emitted from the area. In order to implement effective control and ...
