  1. A Compact, In-Situ Instrument for Organic Acids

    SBC: Aerosol Dynamics Inc.            Topic: 20

    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 ...

  2. A Comprehensive Web Infrastructure for Standardizing, Storing, and Launching Density Functional Calculations of Materials and Chemical Compounds

    SBC: Citrine Informatics, Inc.            Topic: 09a

    Density functional theory is used by many researchers funded by the Department of Energy as a method for predicting the behavior of chemicals and materials used in energy applications. However, results of these calculations are often not standardized and, even when they are, expert-level understand of the methods is needed in order to properly perform a simulation. The energy research community a ...

  3. A Cross-Disciplinary Environment for Computationally and Data Intensive Applications in the Geosciences

    SBC: 3dgeo Development Inc.            Topic: 43

    The exploration and production (E&P) of oil and natural gas is one of the most computationally demanding endeavors, generating terabytes of data. To optimize the management of a producing oil field or to find new reserves, the E&P data must be readily available to a multidisciplinary asset management team. The data must be easy to access, and it must be effectively managed by a team of geologist ...

  4. A Diagnostic for Simultaneous Liquid and Vapor Distributions in Sprays using Filtered Rayleigh and Mie Scattering

    SBC: Metrolaser, Inc.            Topic: 07d

    The understanding of how fuel evaporates and mixes when injected into an engine cylinder is of key importance for the design of cleaner, more efficient vehicles. To meet the Department of Energy & apos;s goals of improving fuel efficiency in gasoline engines by 25 percent and diesel engines by 40 percent, advanced tools for research on fuel injection dynamics are needed. Existing techniques for in ...

  5. A High Temperature (400 to 650oC) Secondary Storage Battery Based on Liquid Sodium and Potassium Anodes

    SBC: Materials and Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: 15

    This project will develop technolgy for integrating a high-temperature (400 to 700ºC), high-efficiency (greater than 90%) secondary battery with a 3 to 10 kW solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) system. The battery will be based on an alkali-metal-ion-conducting, highly refractory, beta alumina solid electrolyte (BASE) and a non corrosive metal salt. The battery is expected not only to meet or exceed w ...

  6. A hybrid HTS/LTS Superconductor Design for High-Field Accelerator Magnets

    SBC: Particle Beam Lasers, Inc.            Topic: 33b

    The next generation of particle accelerators, including a proposed LHC upgrade, will move to higher energy and luminosity in order to continue the exploration beyond the limits of the present LHC. This will require new technologyin particular, higher field (20T or more) dipoles as well as better interaction-region quadrupoles to focus the beams at the collision points. This proposal seeks to add ...
