  2. Rapid Assessment of Particle Hygroscopic Growth

    SBC: Aerosol Dynamics Inc.            Topic: 19c

    One of the key parameters affecting the role of atmospheric aerosols in global climate is aerosol hygroscopicity, which describes the water uptake of aerosol particles. Hygroscopicity affects the scattering of light by individual particles; it is important to heterogeneous chemical transformations; and it plays a significant role in the formation and microphysical properties of clouds, all of whi ...

  3. Aerosol Size Distributions for UAV Platforms

    SBC: Aerosol Dynamics Inc.            Topic: 19a

    The size-dependent concentration of airborne particles plays a critical role in the direct scattering and absorption of light, and in the physical characteristics, lifetime and spatial extent of clouds. These factors affect the earth’s radiation balance, and hence climate. Yet these effects are not adequately quantified, in part because of insufficient data on the size and concentration of atmos ...

  7. Refractory Oxides with Tunable Porosity and Geometry as Versatile Fast-Release Solid Catchers for Rare Isotopes

    SBC: Innosense Llc            Topic: 34f

    The Department of Energy (DOE) seeks useful methods of generating intense beams of reaccelerated rare isotopes for the next-generation Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB), currently under construction at Michigan State University. Stopping high-energy, heavy-ion reaction products in fast-release solid catchers is an important method to be developed for realizing intense beams of short-lived iso ...

  8. High-Dimensional Compressive Scanning Transmission Electron Microscopy

    SBC: Integrated Dynamic Electron Solutions, Inc.            Topic: 07a

    While modern transmission electron microscopy (TEM) is an incredibly powerful tool for nanoscience and biology, in terms of information theory it is extremely inefficient; the information obtained per electron striking the sample is a small fraction of what information theory says it could be. Not only does this slow down data acquisition, it also greatly increases the radiation dose to ...

  9. SELECT: Secure and Lightweight Computing Environment for HPC Systems

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 03a

    The increased accessibility via remote login, along with steadily growing numbers of HPC users and projects, poses a challenging question for HPC system management: How to secure HPC systems and protect the data inside these systems? There are several challenging issues that prevent the direct deployment of existing personal computer or cloud security tools in HPC systems: 1) The overhead introduc ...

    SBIR Phase II 2016 Department of Energy


    NOVA Scientific, Inc. proposes a Phase IIB SBIR program to further develop, refine, and commercialize a compact solid-state epithermal neutron imaging detector based on microchannel plates (MCPs), having (1) high detection efficiency well into the epithermal neutron energy range, and (2) the flexibility of having an externally-mounted pixelated electronic readout mated directly onto a hermetically ...
