  1. Co-Generation of Low-Energy, CO2-Free Hydrogen and Ordinary Portland Cement from Ca-Rich Rocks

    SBC: Finke, Cody            Topic: G

    We are building a technology that produces low cost hydrogen while releasing low or no carbon dioxide emissions. Key to our affordable hydrogen is the co-generation of valuable co-products like: Sulfuric Acid or Cement. Our processes are lower emission, lower energy and lower cost than conventional production method. We validated a proof-of-concept in our lab in May 2019 and our objective is to de ...

  2. SeaSTAR: Selective Thalassic Ambulatory Retriever (STAR)

    SBC: Other Lab Inc.            Topic: G

    Growth, electrification, and increased installation of renewable energy is driving significant increases in worldwide demand for metals like manganese, nickel, copper, and cobalt. This increase in commodity prices and projected demand has driven interest in exploring new sources of minerals such as deep sea mining. The abyssal plain contains locations of concentrated deposits of polymetallic nodul ...

  3. Rechargeable carbon-oxygen battery: A new class of ultra low-cost, lightweight energy storage technology

    SBC: Noon Energy Inc.            Topic: G

    Noon Energy has developed a new class of battery technology that will cost-effectively turn intermittent solar and wind electricity into on-demand power. It uses ultra-low-cost storage media and can match the energy efficiency of lithium-ion technology. It stores energy by splitting CO2 into solid carbon and oxygen in a flow battery configuration, utilizing abundant materials and simple reaction c ...

  4. Space Division Multiplexing with Multi-Core Fiber for Energy Efficient Integrated Photonic Networking Technologies


    The trend for short-reach optical fiber communications, those used for data centers and HPC, has been to use simple and power-efficient approaches to scale bandwidth. Approaches include parallel single mode (ex. more fibers), multi-level modulation coupled with direct detection (ex. four-level pulse amplitude modulation or PAM-4), and wide channel spacing (i.e. coarse WDM or CWDM). Bandwidth and c ...

  5. Nano 3D Printing of Capillary Optics

    SBC: POLARONYX, INC.            Topic: 13a

    Additive manufacturing AM), esp. laser AM, becomes a powerful tool to replace conventional methods due to its cost effectiveness and capability of making complex structure and composition. However, direct fabrication of optics parts is still a challenging field, mainly due to limited understanding of process control, powder fabrication, and laser melting mechanism to eliminate defects and bubbles. ...

  6. NEXT Neutron Detector Modules based on High Density SiPM Arrays and Novel Organic Glass Scintillator

    SBC: XIA LLC            Topic: 34a

    To maximize its research potential The Facility for Rare Isotope Beams FRIB) requires a neutron tracking array NEXT) with both efficiency and energy resolution at least three times better than the current VANDLE, while also providing excellent gamma-ray rejection over a wide neutron energy range. Unfortunately, the only economically viable NEXT design to date, using EJ276 scintillator and H12700 p ...

  7. A Miniature Probe for Instantaneous Aerosol Mobility Sizing

    SBC: Aerosol Dynamics Inc.            Topic: 27b

    Atmospheric nucleation events inject large numbers of ultrafine particles into the air, some of which grow sufficiently large to affect the formation and characteristics of clouds. Yet widespread monitoring of these events is limited by the complexity, cost and size of available instrumentation. The miniature condensation particle counter of this project utilizes an innovative approach to measure ...

  8. Miniature Condensation Particle Counter

    SBC: Aerosol Dynamics Inc.            Topic: 27b

    The concentration and size of atmospheric particles are critical parameters to evaluating the dynamics of aerosol processes, and to understanding aerosol cloud interactions . Especially important are highly time-resolved measurements aloft, for this is our only direct glimpse into the three-dimensional profile of atmospheric aerosols. In the past these vertical profiles were obtained with aircraft ...

  9. Intelligent Transport Protocol ITP)

    SBC: ENNETIX INC.            Topic: 05b

    Ennetix will develop an experimental transport protocol, called ITP, which will employ multiple learn- and-infer techniques in congestion avoidance, buffer management, and network coding for forward-error correction) at the Transmission Control Protocol TCP) stack. ITP intends to intelligently manage the congestion-window parameters during the presence of increased loss rate and/or delay, thus ach ...

  10. Quench Protection for a Neutron Scattering Magnet

    SBC: Particle Beam Lasers, Inc.            Topic: 18a

    Neutron scattering experiments would benefit from magnets with fields at least 50% more intense than the ~16 Tesla presently available from conventional low-temperature superconductors LTS). A high temperature superconductor HTS) , operating at ~4 K as a high field superconductor, is essential, because commercial LTS has insufficient current capacity at high fields. For neutron diffraction measure ...
