    SBC: Chip Design Systems            Topic: AF18AT017

    We propose to develop an innovative concept of the high speed dynamic IRSP that combines components and devices from proven suppliers with novel system-level research topics from CDS and University of Delaware. Having previously built and delivered working LED IRSPs to users gives CDS a unique advantage. In line with system theme of the solicitation, our phase 1 research topics are focused on syst ...

  2. Wafer-Level Electronic-Photonic Co-Packaging

    SBC: PHASE SENSITIVE INNOVATIONS            Topic: AF16AT01

    In phase II work, we will collaborate with Prof. Stefan Preble in RIT and continue to develop large scale hybrid integration and packaging techniques for key active photonic components such as lithium niobate on insulator (LNOI) modulators and modified uni-traveling (MUTC) photodiodes. We will demonstrate a low V, broadband, small footprint LNOI modulator with hybrid Si/LN or SiN/LN waveguide usin ...

  3. Instant k-Space Tomography for Spatial-Spectral Monitoring

    SBC: PHASE SENSITIVE INNOVATIONS            Topic: AF17AT013

    The Army is frequently forced to operate in hostile climates. Heavy fog, rain, snow, and dust storms can inhibit the performance of tracking technologies such as mid-wave infrared cameras. In such conditions, Army early warning systems are blinded and put personnel and assets at risk.There is a specific need for a degraded visual environment (DVE) penetrative target tracking solution.Radio frequen ...

  4. New Fluorinated Ionomers for Enhanced Oxygen Transport in Fuel Cell Cathodes

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 17a

    Cathodes in proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFCs) that run on hydrogen are coated with a thin layer of conductive ionomer- The ionomer facilitates proton conduction to the costly platinum group metal (PGM) catalyst in the cathode, where oxygen reduction and reaction to form water occurs- Higher catalyst efficiency and lower catalyst loadings are desirable for industry PEMFC cost reductions- ...

  5. Stable Facilitated Transport Membranes for C4 Separation

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 17f

    C4 olefins are important petroleum refinery and petrochemical plant products- They are used in a variety of downstream processes, such as the production of alkylate fuel for gasoline- About 65 million metric tons of alkylate fuel is produced globally from C4 olefins- Other downstream products are secondary butyl alcohol, maleic anhydride, and butylene oxide, butyl rubber, and methyl methacrylate, ...

  6. Novel membranes for Electrochemical Hydrogen Compression enabling increased pressure capability and higher pumping efficiency

    SBC: Xergy Inc            Topic: 17d

    Xergy and RPI will develop a novel composite membrane that enables electrochemical hydrogen compression at > 1 kg/hour at 875 bar with an energy consumption of 1.4 kWh/kg, given hydrogen input at 100 bar. Phase I of this research will include synthesis of membrane samples, followed by bench-top evaluation of key performance characteristics, including polarization curves, Tafel plots, and evaluatio ...

  7. Enhanced Oxidative Dehydrogenation of Ethane with Facilitated Transport Membranes for Low Cost Production of Ethylene

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 17a

    Ethylene demand is expected to increase by 50% domestically and worldwide over the next 5 years with a scramble to increase supply via expansion or grass root facilities. US capacity will remain at about 20% of the world’s supply and exceed 100 BPPY. To meet this challenge, US-DOE has invented a mixed metal oxide catalyst, M1 for the oxidative dehydrogenation of ethane (C2-ODH) to ethylene at hi ...

  8. Flux Monitoring on an X-Ray Refractive Diamond Lens

    SBC: Delaware Diamond Knives, Inc            Topic: 05d

    Synchrotron-based science has had a great scientific impact and will continue to have great impact going forward. For high brightness 3rd and 4th generation light sources, errors are almost completely due to distortion in the front-end optics caused by the high heat loads generated by the broadband radiation from the insertion device. Diamond offers a solution because of its low x-ray absorption a ...

  9. Integrated Membrane Reactor for Enhancing Thermal & Chemical Reactors

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 06c

    With development of shale gas fracking, large amounts of methane and ethane have now become available at low cost. With this low cost ethane it is desirable to convert low cost ethane to high value ethylene. Oxidative dehydration (ODH) for low cost conversion of ethane to ethylene is a potentially attractive route. ODH is an exothermic process for converting ethane to ethylene. By contrast process ...

  10. Adaptive Weather Resistant Barrier for Building Envelopes to Control Moisture Ingression and Increase Energy Efficiency

    SBC: EA Membranes LLC            Topic: 09a

    Excessive moisture transport into building enclosures can lead to increased energy use as well as mold growth and structural rot when moisture condenses in wall cavities. Currently, architects and builders must use passive membrane products as weather resistant barriers which exhibit a single permeability irrespective of environmental conditions. Membranes with a single high permeability may allow ...
