  1. Highly Efficient Vacuum Smelting of Aluminum

    SBC: UHV TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: G

    The goal of this SBIR project is to develop and demonstrate an innovative aluminum smelting technology that will significantly increase the range of aluminum alloys that can be manufactured from recycling of scrap aluminum. This will result in reduction of need for primary aluminum with corresponding 95% energy and CO2 emission benefits. The proposed melting of pre-sorted aluminum alloys using UHV ...

  3. Magnetized Beam Transport Design Optimization for High Bunch Charge Beams

    SBC: Xelera Research LLC            Topic: 33c

    Magnetized and nonmagnetized beams are critical to achieve the luminosity goals of the next generation of electron-ion colliders. Maintaining magnetization and emittance of these beams from injection and transport through a long cooling solenoid is essential for this to work. For this Phase I, we will explore multiple concepts for the critical sections of arc transport and injector merger for high ...

  6. Large-Area Visible and UV Metal-Oxide Avalanche Photodiodes for Cherenkov Detectors

    SBC: Qrona Technologies LLC            Topic: 34a

    For many decades photomultiplier tubes PMTs) have been the main technology for sensitive and low noise detection of photons in many high energy physics experiments. However, compared to solid-state photodetectors, PMTs are bulky, fragile, and need to be shielded from high magnetic fields and high pressures, which severely limit their application for future DOE projects. Hence, there is a need for ...
