  1. Coaxial Energetic Ion Depostition of Superconducting Coatings on Copper RF Cavities for Particle Accelerators

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: 15a

    75521S Radio frequency (RF) cavities are a key component in particle accelerators for fundamental high-energy physics research and medical applications. To enhance their capabilities, niobium-coated superconducting copper cavities have shown promise for supporting higher electric field gradients when compared to non-superconducting designs. However, a satisfactory coating method has not been de ...

  2. High Brightness Neutron Source for Radiography

    SBC: Adelphi Technology, Inc.            Topic: 27a

    75903-Neutron radiography, which uses nuclear reactors and accelerators as sources of neutrons, has been demonstrated to be an excellent method for imaging high-density, thick objects for the detection of corrosion, voids, and cracks, particular in nuclear power plants. Unfortunately, no high brightness neutron sources exist that are portable, inexpensive and capable of neutron radiography in sho ...

  3. A Compact, In-Situ Instrument for Organic Acid Areosols

    SBC: Aerosol Dynamics Inc.            Topic: 20d

    76023-Among the contributors to atmospheric pollution, carboxylic acids (including mono- and dicarboxylic acids, aliphatic ketoacids, and aromatic acids) are an important class of oxygenated, organic compounds in atmospheric aerosols. To better understand their sources and atmospheric transformation processes, an automated method for measuring their concentration is required. This project will d ...

  4. A High Efficiency PV to Hydrogen Energy System

    SBC: Amonix, Inc.            Topic: 39d

    76223S In order to facilitate energy independence, increased usage of alternative enery sources will be required. Unfortunately, of the renewable technologies now available, there are no viable alternatives that can produce power 24 hours a day. For example, wind energy requires a threshold wind speed and solar energy requires sunlight. However, if solar energy could be used to produce hydroge ...

  5. Improved Magnetron Injection Guns for Gyrotrons

    SBC: Calabazas Creek Research, Inc.            Topic: 01b

    75258S Gyrotrons and gyroklystrons, used for high power RF applications in the DOE Fusion Program, are being adversely impacted by poorly performing cathodes for which the current emission is not uniform over the entire surface. Poorly performing cathodes adversely impact all RF vacuum electron devices, including those used for accelerators, radar, communications, medical applications, and indus ...

  6. Development and Testing of a Demountable Sheet Electron Beam Analyzer with Fluorescent Screen

    SBC: ELCON, INC.            Topic: 06b

    75527S The sheet-beam klystron holds great promise for providing high RF power for modern linear colliders. However, sheet beam generation is not readily amenable to computer simulation; therefore, experimental validation of the design is sorely needed. This project will develop a demountable sheet beam analyzer with a fluorescent screen for direct observation of the electron beam cross section ...

  7. Adaptive On-Line Monitoring for Improved Equipment Reliability

    SBC: EXPERT MICROSYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 27a

    75797S In order to ensure the continued safe, reliable, and efficient operation of the Nation¿s nuclear power plants, improvements are needed in the accuracy and timeliness of information delivered to the operators about the condition of the plant equipment. The information is needed to determine the operability of safety and control systems, the health of active equipment, the necessity of pre ...

  8. Novel, High Energy Density Intermetallic Anode Material for Li-Ion Batteries

    SBC: Farasis Energy, Inc.            Topic: 31d

    76075S The current classes of anode and cathode materials used for Li-ion batteries do not have sufficient energy density to meet many advanced application requirements. Intermetallic anodes have the potential to triple or quadruple the energy density over current carbon anodes, but have not been able to achieve the cycle life required in an economically viable manner. This project will develop ...

  9. Optimization of Electron-Cyclotron-Resonance Charge-Breeder Ions

    SBC: Far-Tech, Inc.            Topic: 15c

    75546S Many Radioactive Ion Beam (RIB) laboratories around the world are using or planning to use Electron Cyclotron Resonance (ECR) Charge Breeders because they provide an economical way of producing RIBs. Currently, charge breeders, which produce multi-charged radioactive ions for nuclear physics research, produce the RIBs by a trial and error method. This project will investigate the beam ca ...

  10. Ion Beam Drift Compression Technology for NDCX

    SBC: FIRST POINT SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: 03a

    76144-Heavy-ion fusion requires a high current and high brightness beam, but its specifications cannot be met with the highest intensity ion sources available. Current amplification, through longitudinal compression of the beam, will be needed to achieve these specifications, and ion beam drift compression has been identified as the preferred method. However, this concept has not been demonstrat ...
