  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Programmable, Reconfigurable Silicon Photodiode Array Module

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 34c

    Many planned nextgeneration experiments in high energy physics, astroparticle physics, and nuclear physics need a plethora of photon detectors with singlephoton sensitivity, large dynamic range, and accessibility throughout experiment lifetime. These requirements constrain the sensor: low sensitivity against temperature and bias fluctuations; very compact; very robust; cheap; insensitive to magn ...

  6. TAU Commander: An Intuitive Interface for the TAU Performance Analysis System

    SBC: ParaTools INC            Topic: 02b

    The Department of Energy and other federal agencies have made significant investments in software performance engineering tools, which can be complex and difficult to use. Novice users first encountering a tools complexity and vast array of features are intimidated and easily frustrated. There is also a lack of advanced problem identification capabilities so users rely heavily on their o ...

  7. Digital Silicon Photomultiplier Readout Circuit

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 42b

    The need for ever more sensitive, compact, rugged, and inexpensive optical sensors is particularly acute in the fields of homeland security, biological sciences, nuclear medicine, and nuclear and highenergy physics. The ability to detect the spatial location and time of arrival of single photons with increased accuracy represents the ultimate goal in optical detection for many of these application ...

  8. Low SWAP LIDAR Instrument for Arctic Ice Sheet Mass Balance Monitoring

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 17a

    The Arctic sea ice cover plays a major role in governing the exchange of energy between the ocean and atmosphere in the Polar Regions. As such, observations of ice extent and thickness, including temporal growth and melt cycles, improves our understanding of the ongoing global climate changes, and enhances our ability to predict future changes. Despite continual improvements in global climate mode ...

  9. Grid 2.0: Collaboration and Sharing on the Grid

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: 54c

    Grid computing, the application of many loosely-coupled computers in federation to provide shared resources makes significant compute or storage capabilities accessible to distributed teams of researchers. In doing so, it also poses a challenge: How do distributed teams collaborate effectively with these resources? This project will determine how best to apply social and collaboration software ...

  10. Improved Symbol Resolution for Portable Build Systems

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: 41e

    Modern High Performance Computing utilizes a variety of different hardware and software platforms. These differences make it difficult to develop reusable components, which lead to a significant decrease of productivity. Our goal is to investigate the design of portable build systems that are simple, yet sufficiently robust with respect to symbol resolution, so that they are able to adapt and buil ...
