  2. Rechargeable carbon-oxygen battery: A new class of ultra low-cost, lightweight energy storage technology

    SBC: Noon Energy Inc.            Topic: G

    Noon Energy has developed a new class of battery technology that will cost-effectively turn intermittent solar and wind electricity into on-demand power. It uses ultra-low-cost storage media and can match the energy efficiency of lithium-ion technology. It stores energy by splitting CO2 into solid carbon and oxygen in a flow battery configuration, utilizing abundant materials and simple reaction c ...

  3. Space Division Multiplexing with Multi-Core Fiber for Energy Efficient Integrated Photonic Networking Technologies


    The trend for short-reach optical fiber communications, those used for data centers and HPC, has been to use simple and power-efficient approaches to scale bandwidth. Approaches include parallel single mode (ex. more fibers), multi-level modulation coupled with direct detection (ex. four-level pulse amplitude modulation or PAM-4), and wide channel spacing (i.e. coarse WDM or CWDM). Bandwidth and c ...

  4. Gas sheet monitor diagnositc for intense charged particle beams

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: 09a

    Accelerators for light sources, and high-energy physics, require non-destructive and non- interceptive diagnostics for measuring beam profiles. Typical diagnostics based on solid materials or reflectors will not withstand high intensities and pose potential for radiation damage. In this proposal, we investigate the use of a tailored gas sheet distribution to supplant traditional metal foils. As th ...

  5. Coherent Single-Electron Gun

    SBC: ELECTRON OPTICA, INC.            Topic: 15c

    Electron microscopes have been widely used by material scientists, biologists, and industrial scientists to study the composition and chemical structure of materials with high spatial and temporal resolution. Commonly used electron sources limit the performance of these techniques because they emit electrons with a relatively large energy spread (0.25-1 eV). This spread limits the energy resolutio ...

  6. Ultrafast High Voltage Kicker System Hardware for Ion Clearing Gaps

    SBC: RadiaBeam Systems, LLC            Topic: 30c

    High current energy recovery linacs (ERLs), such as the one proposed for the JLab Electron Ion Collider cooling system, need temporal “gaps” to alleviate the ions trapped by strong Coulomb forces. Nearly rectangular pulses should kick the beam for ~100 ns at ~1 MHz repetition rate, using very limited beamline space. These gaps must be imposed on a very low emittance, ultra-relativistic beam cu ...

  7. An RF beam Sweeper for Purifying In-Flight Produced Rare Isotope Beams

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: 30e

    The Argonne Tandem Linac Accelerator System (ATLAS) is the only national user facility for low-energy stable heavy ion beams. Beams of radioactive nuclei produced by the in-flight method provide access to more than 100 short-lived isotopes. After traversing the production target, the primary beam is energy degraded and acquires a long low-intensity energy tail from the multiple-scattering processe ...

  8. Microwave Thermionic Electron Gun for Synchrotron Light Sources

    SBC: RadiaBeam Systems, LLC            Topic: 04b

    Conventional thermionic RF guns can offer high average beam current, which is important for synchrotron light and THz radiation sources facilities, as well as for industrial applications. The Advanced Photon Source (APS) at Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) is a national synchrotron-radiation light source research facility that utilizes thermionic RF guns. However, these existing thermionic guns a ...

  9. Low temperature thermionic electron source with narrow energy spread

    SBC: Spark Thermionics, Inc.            Topic: 15c

    A major challenge in the field of electron microscopy is to reach energy resolution as low as 1 meV, which would improve the performance of currently used technologies and facilitate the development of novel techniques. The main roadblock limiting these developments are the currently available electron sources, which can only achieve resolution of 10 meV, an achievement that is already linked to m ...

  10. High Temperature Alloy-Interface Characterization in Molten Salt Reactors by Radiation Resistant Fiber Optic Sensors

    SBC: Fiesler, Emile            Topic: 20e

    In order to deploy clean, affordable, domestic energy sources of the future, the United States must improve the safety and reliability of high energy systems.Engineering materials for service in nuclear reactors, such as the higher efficiency molten salt reactors, are under development that will extend their safe operating lifetimes to at least four to five decades to achieve long-term energy secu ...
