  1. An Advanced Power Converter System Using High Temperature, High Power Density SiC Devices

    SBC: Aegis Technology, Inc.            Topic: 01

    Electronic power conversion systems introduce major cost and reliability issues in most distributed energy resources and energy storage systems. This project will develop a power conversion system based on an emerging wide-bandgap, SiC-based semiconductor technology. This system will be capable of operating at high power densities, high temperatures, and high frequencies, and will provide advant ...

  2. Two Dimensional Chromatography of Atmospheric Aerosols: A New In-Situ Instrument

    SBC: Aerosol Dynamics Inc.            Topic: 03

    Organic matter is a major constituent of airborne particles, comprising 20-50% of their mass. Identification of its components is critical for tracing sources, elucidating transformation and formation processes, assessing affects on human health, and assessing affects on global climate. Therefore, in situ, high-time-resolution comprehensive measurements of organic aerosol speciation are required. ...

  3. Accelerated Biomethanation of Sequestered Carbon Dioxide and Paraffin in Coal Beds

    SBC: Altuda Energy Corporation            Topic: 16

    The objectives of this research are to enhance and accelerate the in situ bioconversion of sequestered carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, into methane in the presence of hydrogen-rich coal macerals and paraffin. Methanogens require a source of hydrogen and an electron acceptor such as carbon dioxide in order to generate methane. The abundance of hydrogen coupled with sequestered carbon dioxide in ...

  4. Development of HydroImage: A User-Friendly Hydrogeophysical Characterization Software Package

    SBC: Geomatrix Consultants, Inc.            Topic: 06

    At thousands of sites across the U.S., groundwater and soils are contaminated with hazardous chemicals, metals, and radioactive contaminants. At both private and government sites, including DOE, there is strong interest in reducing the costs of cleanup and long-term monitoring. Many advances have recently occurred in the field of hydrogeophysics, where geophysical data are used to estimate hydrog ...

  5. Nanostructured Coatings by Pulsed Plasma Processing for Alloys used in Coal-Fired Environments

    SBC: KARTA TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: 15

    The efficient and profitable operation of coal-fired power plants requires higher steam temperatures and pressures, necessitating the use of advanced alloys. A major concern in using these advanced materials is their poor corrosion and oxidation resistance in fossil energy environments. Therefore, protective coatings on the ferritic and austenitic steels used in these coal-fired environments are ...

  6. Automatic Calibration of High-Performance Metrological Instrumentation

    SBC: Abeam Technologies Inc.            Topic: 04c

    Metrology is a multi-billion dollar industry that is an indispensable part of science and manufacturing. A variety of techniques including interferometric microscopes, scanning electron microscopes (SEM), X-ray, and atomic force microscopes (AFM) are used in X-ray mirror manufacturing. The performance of any tool directly depends on the ability to characterize and tune it ...

  7. Comprehensive Time-Resolved Molecular Speciation Of Gaseous And Particulate Organic Constituents In The Atmosphere

    SBC: Aerosol Dynamics Inc.            Topic: 17d

    Organic chemicals comprise the dominant fraction of particulates found in atmospheric aerosols, and the largest proportions of these are secondary products formed in the atmosphere from oxidation of volatile organic compounds. Often these chemical transformations result from complex pathways involving species from different sources. To understand these processes, we need to be able to trace the ...

  8. Ultra-High Temperature Thermal Barrier Coatings

    SBC: HiFunda, LLC            Topic: 19d

    State of the art yttria stabilized zirconia (YSZ) based thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) are typically limited to maximum use temperatures of 1200-1300C. A thermal barrier coating (TBC) with a 1500C temperature capability would be a major gas turbine materials breakthrough. New coatings with a 200C temperature advantage can be used by the gas turbine industry to significantly increase turbine effi ...

  9. MK III Upper Extremity Exoskeleton

    SBC: Ekso Bionics Inc            Topic: 739552

    As the carry and protective gear of the modern war fighter increases, the burden on the human body will necessarily increase. In our present TALOS MkIII project, we are developing lower body augmentation to preserve speed and agility while bearing this weight. Yet we cannot ignore the impact of this weight on the upper body: in this project we propose to develop an upper body exoskeleton with p ...

  10. Recovery of Rhenium from Superalloy Scrap

    SBC: LYNNTECH INC            Topic: OSD12T04

    Due to the limited amount of rhenium present in the earths crust (approximately 1-2 part per billion) there is a significant benefit to be realized in recovering for reuse the rhenium from scrap material, spent catalysts, or end-of-life superalloys. Rhenium is found in molybdenum-copper porphyry deposits. If rhenium is present in ore that is processed, it will show up in the resulting molybdenum ...
