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. Nb3Sn Deposition for RF Analysis

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The proposed Ph-II research project will be led by Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation, in collaboration with Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (JLab) and Norfolk State University (NSU) via subcontracts. This team covers the gamut of fundamental research into new Superconducting Radio Frequency (SRF) materials: (i) to first characterize the materials properties such as morphology, grain siz ...

  2. A Novel Wakefield Gas Jet

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: N/A

    There are numerous fields in which fast pulses of supersonic gas jets are useful. One such application is for the laser wakefield acceleration of electrons. Currently, valves with opening times on the order of hundreds of microseconds and closing times that are even longer are used to supply the gas or small capillaries that are used to control the gas density. This project will develop techno ...

  3. Multilayer Coatings to Improve the Efficiency and Life of High Intensity Discharge Lamps


    High Intensity Discharge (HID) lamps are used extensively for large area lighting ¿ such as for parking lots, streets, and warehouses ¿ and are increasingly being used for general lighting in stores and homes. Improving the efficiency of HID lamps would result in significant energy savings. This project will develop an inexpensive, robust coating that is applied to the outside of an HID lamp a ...

  4. An In-Situ Instrument to Assess the Concentration and Phase Partitioning of Atmospheric Semi-Volatile Organic Compounds

    SBC: Aerosol Dynamics Inc.            Topic: 14c

    Semi-volatile organic compounds are a significant, but poorly characterized fraction of atmosphere aerosols. Many are formed through photochemical processing of more volatile organics, and once oxidized tend to form less volatile compounds that condense into the particulate phase. Knowledge at the molecular level of their abundance and vapor-particle phase partitioning is needed to understand th ...

  5. Thermally Conductive, Carbon Foam Material for Constructing Silicon-Based Tracking Detectors

    SBC: Allcomp Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The next generation of silicon-based detectors for tracking charged-particles in high energy physics experiments will impose demanding requirements. One of these requirements involves the need for thermally efficient, low mass, dimensionally-stable support structures exposed to high radiation fields. This project will develop specially processed carbon foam for use in sandwich structures that su ...

  6. Biomass Blending Densification System

    SBC: Altex Technologies Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Conventional biomass densification and energy enhancement equipment is too costly for use in upgrading feedstocks for biofuels plants. Therefore, this project will develop an innovative biomass blending and densification system (BBADS) to densify biomass and upgrade the energy value. In Phase I, the biomass densification system was designed, and the performance of the system was estimated. In P ...

  7. Chemical Infrared Spectroscopic Imaging with Nanometer Spatial Resolution Using Atomic Force Microscopy

    SBC: Anasys Instruments Corp.            Topic: 01b

    SPMs are a strategically vital tool for nanotechnology research constituting a $250 Mill/yr industry while enabling several multi-Billion downstream industries like Materials and Pharmaceuticals. However, their single biggest drawback is their inability to obtain any chemical information on their samples. As our letters of support reiterate, this impacts DOE researchers in the Genome to Life; Or ...

  8. Intelligent Actuation Control Using Model-Free Adaptive Control Technology

    SBC: Cybosoft, General Cybernation Group, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    For the U.S. to reach its future energy objectives, ultra-clean and highly efficient energy plants must be built. The control and optimization of coal-fired power plants is highly dependent on coordinated and integrated sensing, control, and actuation technologies and products. Prior efforts to develop novel sensing and control technologies have been successful, but little work has been devoted ...

  9. Voltage Droop Compensation for High Power Marx Modulators

    SBC: DULY RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The International Linear Collider (ILC) will need hundreds of modulators to power the 10-MW, long pulse (1.4 ms) klystrons. A Marx modulator controlled by solid-state switches promises higher efficiency, longer lifetime, and reduced cost compared to existing hard tube modulator options. However, voltage droop is one of the critical challenges that limit the application of the Marx modulators. T ...

  10. Novel Linac Structure for Proton and Electron Accelerators

    SBC: Far-Tech, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Novel accelerator structures are of great interest for accelerators used for high energy physics, nuclear physics, and medical purposes. Even a slight improvement could have a significant impact in the research community and in industry. This project will investigate the use of slot resonators to simplify accelerating structures. In Phase I, it was shown that the simplified design appeared to p ...
