  1. Handheld IR Raman Spectroscopy for Rapid Chemical Identification

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: CBD08102

    In Phase I, Aerius Photonics demonstrated Raman spectroscopy at 785 nm, 980 nm, and 1064 nm, with only 1064 nm-based excitation showing a reduction in fluorescence. In addition, Aerius Photonics and partner Ahura Scientific, demonstrated a breadboard version of an InGaAs-based Raman spectrometer to assess any engineering challenges. By the end of a Phase III, Aerius proposes to develop a handheld ...

  4. Development of a 2 MW CW Waterload for Electron Cyclotron Heating Systems

    SBC: Calabazas Creek Research, Inc.            Topic: 56b

    Gyrotrons are being developed for ITER and other fusion systems that produce 2 MW CW of RF power for electron cyclotron heating. Currently there are no waterloads available to test gyrotrons at this power level. The U.S. also is responsible for providing 1.5 MW loads and 2.0 MW loads for ITER. Calabazas Creek Research, Inc. developed prelimnary designs in Phase I that efficiently distrib

  5. Low Cost LWIR Interferometric HSI System

    SBC: Spectrum Photonics, Inc.            Topic: CBD09108

    Due to the potential detection benefits offered by hyperspectral imaging spectroscopy, this is an area of great interest in terms of early detection of plume threats. The major constraint is in costs of components. Under this SBIR, our team will investigate innovative advances in the integration of uncooled microbolometer technologies to determine the potential for reducing detector cost and com ...

  8. Tapered Composite Wind Turbine Tower Utilizing CNC-Machined Pultruded Lineals

    SBC: EBERT COMPOSITES CORPORATION            Topic: 20a

    The wind turbine industry is in need of lighter weight and lower cost support towers. Composite materials can offer many advantages to small wind systems. But also, the technology developed in the Phase I can apply to very large wind turbines up to 5 MW, and in environments of the future, such as off-shore in the US in deep water.During Phase I, Ebert Composites has developed a hybrid composite po ...

  9. Auto-Commissioning and Auto-Discovery Control System for Solid State Lighting

    SBC: Redwood Systems            Topic: 17c

    Lighting control systems are expensive, complex, and often piecemeal in their approach to how to manage light spaces. We aim to take advantage of the unique voltage and power properties of solid state lighting (SSL) to create a novel lighting power and control system that addresses cost, energy usage, complexity, and comprehensive coverage. For solid state lighting, Redwood Systems sees cost-sav ...

  10. Novel, High Performance Li-Ion Cell

    SBC: Farasis Energy, Inc.            Topic: 15c

    Current Li-ion technology offers the highest energy density of any rechargeable battery system. Unfortunately, Li-ion systems still do not meet the energy density and cost goals for emerging EV markets including PHEVs. A new strategy to meeting these goals includes selecting high capacity battery materials, currently incompatible with conventional assembly of Li-ion cells in the discharged state, ...
