  1. "LAPPD Commercialization Fully Integrated Sealed Detector Devices

    SBC: INCOM, INC.            Topic: 38a

    The high energy physics (HEP) community, the scientific and medical communities and the public at large, require the availability of high sensitivity photo- sensors with improved spatial and temporal resolution that can be scaled to large areas, and manufactured in a robust, durable, and compact package at a low cost. Phase I successfully demonstrated the underlying enabling scientific and techni ...

  2. Ultracompact laser ceilometer for boundary layer and cloud height retrievals

    SBC: MixZon, Inc.            Topic: 20c

    The advent of sensor networks to gather atmospheric data for weather and climate prediction on large spatial and temporal scales is crucial to the advancement of our understanding of many important processes that make up such predictive models. The height of the atmospheric boundary layer, for example, is used to parameterize boundary layer transport in numerical weather prediction models and boun ...

  3. Photonic Memory Controller Module (P-MCM)

    SBC: ANALOG PHOTONICS LLC            Topic: 04a

    As computational density for high-performance computing and big-data services continues to scale, performance scalability of next generation computing systems is becoming increasingly constrained by limitations in memory access, power dissipation and chip packaging. The processor-memory communication bottleneck, a major challenge in current multicore processors due to limited pin-out and power bud ...

  4. Development of an Autonomous Aerosol Chemical Speciation Monitor with Integrated Calibration and Quality Assurance Capability

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 20b

    Clouds play leading role in the Earth's global energy and solar radiation balance. Improving cloud models requires information on the cloud microphysical properties, such as particle size distribution and concentration, cloud composition (droplets, ice particles) and also information on ice crystal shapes (habits). New lightweight and low power instruments for characterization of mixed-phase cloud ...

  5. Development of low-cost, large volume CZT spectroscopic gamma detectors

    SBC: CAPESYM, INC            Topic: 51b

    CdZnTe remains the material of choice for room temperature semiconductor detection of X- and -ray radiation, but the availability of high performance material is limited and the cost is high. In this project we will build upon our success in crystal growth and annealing processes that have resulted in growth of large diameter single crystal boules and high performance gamma radiation detectors. Th ...

  6. Manufacture of 2,5-Furandicarboxylic Acid from Furfural Produced from a Wet Waste Stream

    SBC: K S E INC            Topic: 14c

    The proposed program provides a new biomass conversion technology to produce FDCA, 2,5- furandicarboxylic acid, to replace hydrocarbon chemicals for production of plasticizers and polyester polymers. FDCA is currently produced from hexose carbohydrates, such as sucrose or high fructose corn syrup. Recent trends in petroleum pricing have reduced biomass raw material cost advantages for replacement ...

  7. Innovative Anchoring System for Floating Offshore Wind

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: 15a

    The cost of anchoring offshore floating wind turbines is an obstacle to reducing the cost of energy from offshore floating wind projects and presents an opportunity for savings. Deep water at sites on the West Coast further drives up these costs. Traditional anchoring systems use large heavy weights, casings, or high drag embedment forces to achieve high-pullout forces required for moorings. High ...

  8. Photonic Fabrics for Optical Tagging

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: 01a

    The US continues to need improvements in capability to deal with the imminent threat of theft of nuclear weapons from a foreign storage facility by a terrorist cell with insider assistance. At the heart of this challenge is the need to develop alternative signature exploitation technologies, taggants, that can be easily observed using sensors capable of detection over large areas and at high resol ...

  9. Robust Kr-85 Detectors for New Waste Cask Design

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 21b

    Dry cask storage systems (DCSS) are used to store spent nuclear fuel from nuclear power plants. Without a long term storage solution in place, storage for decades in casks may be required. High burnup fuel rods may become brittle over time presenting problems for eventual transport of the spent fuel from reactor sites to a central storage facility. It is desired to passively determine the structur ...

  10. Single Step and Continuous Synthesis of Advanced Lithium Ion Positive Electrode Material Powders using UniMelt Microwave Plasma Process

    SBC: Amastan Technologies Inc            Topic: 14a

    For electric vehicles to be widely adopted as a common mode of transportation, the price of the battery packs must be reduced to $125 per kilowatt hour. Prices are currently around $200 per kilowatt our. One path to reduced cost per kilowatt hour is by reducing cathode cost and improving their energy density. Cathode materials account for up to 25% of the battery pack cost. Cost reductions can be ...
