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. Materials Degradation Analysis and Development to Enable Ultra Low Cost, Web-Processed White P-OLED for SSL

    SBC: Add-vision, Inc.            Topic: 12b

    In order to reduce the capital equipment and operating costs involved in the printing of specialty solid state lighting devices, a new LED (light-emitting diode) device structure, based on the use of a doped polymer, has been developed. This project will advance this concept through degradation analysis and material and process development, in order to achieve additional performance and process i ...

  2. High-Energy Gamma-Ray Calibration Source

    SBC: Adelphi Technology, Inc.            Topic: 26a

    No long-lived gamma-ray calibration sources exist with energies above 3.5 MeV, which is an impediment to the calibration of high-purity-germanium and scintillation detectors used in homeland security, nuclear physics and astrophysics. Recent advances in Prompt Gamma-ray Activation Analysis with guided neutron beams have led to the precise calibration of neutron-capture gamma ray sources with ener ...

  3. Neutron Compound Refractive Prisms

    SBC: Adelphi Technology, Inc.            Topic: 13

    The accurate detection of neutrons can make invaluable contributions to the physical, chemical, and biological sciences, and the DoE operates neutron user facilities to support these endeavors. The utility of prisms for neutron detection has long been established, but a single neutron prism has never been able to provide sufficient deflection for practical applications. This project will design ...

  4. High Efficiency, Cost Effective Thermoelectric Materials/Devices for Industrial Process Refrigeration and Waste Heat Recovery

    SBC: Aegis Technology Inc.            Topic: 11c

    The development of high-efficiency thermoelectric ,TE, devices represents an opportunity to cost-effectively exploit industrial waste heat and provide industrial process refrigeration. The key to developing these devices is to first develop a TE material with a high figure of merit, ZT. Therefore, this project will develop a low-cost scalable approach for producing a novel class of high-ZT therm ...

  5. A High-temperature Sealing Technology for Gas Separation Devices

    SBC: Aegis Technology Inc.            Topic: 20

    Gas separation devices are needed in a variety of advanced energy systems (e.g., high-temperature solid oxide fuel cells). For such devices, a reliable sealing technology is needed to enable the hermetical joining of the ceramic membranes used in high temperature gas separation to their underlying support structures (e.g., a metallic body). This project will develop and demonstrate a reliable, r ...

  6. Low Cost Microchannel Heat Exchangers

    SBC: Altex Technologies Corporation            Topic: 11

    Microchannel heat exchangers can greatly reduce heat exchanger size and weight, but are too expensive for most applications, because of high fabrication costs. This project will develop an innovative microchannel heat exchanger that uses low-cost materials, along with a low precision fabrication technique, to reduce heat exchanger cost by 58%. Moreover, the volume and weight of the heat exchange ...

  7. A 200 kW, 350 MHz Inductive Output Tube for RF Accelerators

    SBC: Calabazas Creek Research, Inc.            Topic: 15

    RF sources are required for powering accelerators operating at approximately 350 MHz and for pro­viding 200 kW CW for each accelerator cavity. This project will develop a fundamental-mode, multiple-beam Inductive Output Tube (IOT) for potential accelerator applications. The advantage of multiple beams is the reduction in operating voltage required to propagate several beams down individual beam ...

  8. Beatwave Photoinjector as THz Source

    SBC: DULY RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: 15

    Attaining high peak fields at terahertz (THz) frequencies is among the highest priorities among the common R&D goals of the DOE-NSF-NIH triad. However, THz science and technology have been underdeveloped because of the unavailability of effective and affordable THz sources. The few THz facilities currently available are based on free electron lasers (FELs), which are too bulky, expensive, and in ...

  9. Spent Nuclear Fuel Separation With the Archimedes Plasma Mass Filter

    SBC: Far-Tech, Inc.            Topic: 24

    The Global Nuclear Energy Partnership (GNEP) and the Advanced Fuel Cycle Initiative (AFCI) programs are searching for (1) separations technologies for spent nuclear fuel (SNF) and (2) devices that allow for fission product separation of highly radioactive, low-atomic-mass isotopes from spent transuranic and minor actinide wastes, and that are compatible with the UREX+ process. The innovative, pla ...

  10. Anaerobic Expression of Pyruvate Dehydrogenase for Producing Biofuels in Fermentative Pathways

    SBC: Gevo Inc.            Topic: 48

    Due to political instability in oil-producing nations, growing concern about global warming and a need for indigenous energy resources, the scientific community shoulders the responsibility to identify and develop an economically viable and environmentally friendly fuel alternative. Higher alcohols, such as butanol and isobutanol that can be produced from the same biomass as ethanol are attractive ...
