The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. A COMPUTATIONAL MODEL FOR THE DISCHARGE PHYSICS AND CHEMISTRY IN PLASMA PROCESSING

  2. PRODUCTION OF POTTING MIXES PREDICTABLY SUPPRESSIVE TO SOILBORNE PLANT PATHOGENS

    SBC: Earthgro Inc            Topic: N/A

    MARKETING OF COMPOSTS PREPARED FROM YARD WASTES INCREASINGLY BEING DIVERTED FROM LANDFILLS WILL BECOME A PROBLEM. DURING MATURATION, COMPOSTS ARE NATURALLY RECOLONIZED BY BENEFICIAL MICROORGANISMS THAT PROVIDE BIOLOGICAL CONTROL OF SOME SOILBORNE PLANT DISEASES. CONTROLLED ADDITION OF SPECIFIC BIOCONTROL AGENTS TO COMPOSTS, FOLLOWED BY FORMULATION OF POTTING MIXES WITH THIS PRODUCT INDUCES PREDICT ...

  3. A NOVEL FABRICATION METHOD FOR DIAMOND COMPOSITES

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    DIAMOND AND COPPER ARE UNIQUE IN THEIR ABILITY TO EFFICIENTLY CONDUCT HEAT, MAKING THEM PREMIER MATERIALS FOR ELECTRONIC APPLICATIONS FOR WHICH HEAT REMOVAL IS CRITICAL TO SYSTEM PERFORMANCE. DIFFERENCES IN THEIR OTHER PROPERTIES MAKE IT ATTRACTIVE TO COMBINE THESE TWO MATERIALS INTO A DIAMOND/COPPER COMPOSITE THAT HAS IMPROVED PROPERTIES OVER THOSE OF COPPER ALONE. DIAMONDS OFFER A COST-EFFECTIVE ...

  5. ACOUSTIC HOT GAS CLEANUP OF COAL ASH PARTICLES

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE PARTICLES THAT ARE A NATURAL PRODUCT IN THE HOT GAS EXHAUST OF COAL GASIFIERS AND COMBUSTORS MUST BE REMOVED, OR THEY WILL CAUSE MAJOR DAMAGE TO DOWNSTREAM EQUIPMENT DESIGNED TO EXTRACT ENERGY FROM THE FLOW. A HOT, PARTICLE-LADEN EXHAUST IS AN EXTREME ENVIRONMENT THAT PLACES SEVERE CONSTRAINTS ON THE MATERIALS AND PROCESSES USED IN THE VARIETY OF DEVICES THAT MIGHT REMOVE THESE PARTICLES. THE ...

  6. AN ADVANCED COAL FIRED HEAT EXCHANGER/GAS TURBINE TOPPING CYCLE FOR A HIGH EFFICIENCY POWERPLANT

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENTS IN EFFICIENCY FOR COAL-FIRED POWERPLANTS CAN BE ACHIEVED BY CYCLES THAT EMPLOY A HIGH TEMPERATURE, HIGHLY RECUPERATIVE GAS TURBINE TOPPING CYCLE. THE PRINCIPAL DIFFICULTY IN EMPLOYING A GAS TURBINE IN A COAL FIRED POWER GENERATION SYSTEM IS THE POSSIBLE EROSION AND CORROSION OF THE HIGH TEMPERATURE ROTATING GAS TURBINE COMPONENTS CAUSED BY THE COAL'S INORGANIC AND ORGANICA ...

  7. ON-LINE DIAGNOSTICS FOR FULLERENE SYNTHESIS

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    IT HAS RECENTLY BEEN SHOWN THAT CAGED CARBON CLUSTERS, FULLERENES, ARE PRODUCED IN SIGNIFICANT QUANTITIES IN A CARBON ARC IN A HELIUM ATMOSPHERE AT ABOUT 150 TORR. IT WAS ALSO SHOWN THAT THE FULLERENES ARE SOLUBLE IN COMMON ORGANIC SOLVENTS. THESE TWO IMPORTANT DISCOVERIES OPENED THE DOOR TO SEVERAL POSSIBLE APPLICATIONS OF CARBON FULLERENES. EXAMPLES INCLUDE CERAMIC COATINGS, LUBRICANTS, COATINGS ...

  8. ADVANCED LIQUEFACTION BY CATALYTIC REDUCTION OF LOW TEMPERATURE CROSSLINKING

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    LIQUEFACTION OF LOW RANK COALS OFFERS THE POTENTIAL OF HIGH OIL YIELDS. HOWEVER, BECAUSE OF THEIR SMALL AROMATIC RING CLUSTER SIZE, LOW RANK COALS ARE MORE DIFFICULT TO LIQUEFY IN THE FIRST (SOLUBILIZATION) STAGE UNDER CONDITIONS OPTIMIZED FOR BITUMINOUS COALS. IT IS LIKELY THAT CROSSLINKING REACTIONS ASSOCIATED WITH OXYGEN FUNCTIONAL GROUPS OCCUR BEFORE THE HOMOLYTIC CLEAVAGE REACTIONS. IF NOT CO ...

  10. AN ADVANCED FLUORESCENCE SENSOR FOR PROCESS CONTROL

    SBC: CIENCIA INC            Topic: N/A

    THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN ADVANCED FREQUENCY-AGILE SENSOR FOR ON-LINE CHEMICAL ANALYSIS OF FLUORESCENT SPECIES IN PROCESS STREAMS IS THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT. THIS SENSOR IS BASED ON THE INNOVATIVE USE OF TUNABLE ACOUSTO-OPTIC FILTERS TO ACHIEVE RANDOM-ACCESS WAVELENGTH SELECTION WITH MICROSECOND SWITCHING TIME, HIGH OPTICAL THROUGHPUT FOR ENHANCED SENSITIVITY, AND HIGH SPECTRAL RESOLUTION FOR AC ...
