  1. Wide Angle Neutron Spin Echo Device

    SBC: ADELPHI TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: 12a

    The Neutron Spin Echo (NSE) method has provided unique information about the dynamics of soft materials, including confirmation of the de Gennes model of polymer reptation, and quantitative measurement of the bending constants of various membranes. In almost all cases these measurements have been made at small neutron scattering angles, where structural correlations with length scales between 10 n ...

  2. Vertical GaN Substrates

    SBC: Sixpoint Materials, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SixPoint Materials will create low-cost, high-quality vertical gallium nitride (GaN) substrates using a multi-phase production approach that employs both hydride vapor phase epitaxy (HVPE) technology and ammonothermal growth techniques to lower costs and maintain crystal quality. Substrates are thin wafers of semiconducting material needed for power devices. In its two-phase project, SixPoint Mate ...

  3. Verification of CO2 Storage in Coal Beds

    SBC: Algorithmica Llc            Topic: 24b

    The injection and storage of captured CO2 in coal beds has been suggested as a strategy to reduce industrial emissions of CO2 into the atmosphere. The sequestration process involves the adsorption by coal of injected CO2 and an associated desorption of CH4 whose production can partially offset the operational cost. The acceptance of this strategy depends on: the ability to effectively monitor the ...

  4. User Location-Specific Data for Smarter Smart Grids

    SBC: ERIK PAGE & ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: 06b

    Society at large and DOE in particular have an interest in the continued development and refinement of a smart grid infrastructure that more efficiently and reliably matches electrical resources to demands. While technological advances in recent years have improved the smart grid, these advances have been limited by a lack of granularity of data (e.g. environmental conditions at multiple locations ...

  5. Use of Fiber Optic Distributed Acoustic Sensing for Measuring Hydraulic Connectivity for Geothermal Applications

    SBC: GeoMechanics Technologies            Topic: 17b

    Advanced methods in reservoir characterization are required to effectively harness geothermal energy from fractured high-temperature, high-pressure crystalline rock. It is critically important to determine sufficient fluid connection between injection and production wells to enhance sweep efficiency and optimize the lifetime of the reservoir. Measuring hydraulic pressure changes in offset wells in ...

  6. Ultrafast infrared chemical nano-scope: Femtosecond spatio-temporal nanoimaging and spectroscopy

    SBC: Anasys Instruments Corp.            Topic: 12a

    Anasys Instruments in collaboration with Markus Raschke (University of Colorado, Boulder) propose to jointly develop a new ultrafast infrared and optical scanning probe nano-scope, based on scattering scanning near-field optical microscopy (s-SNOM), that provides both spatio-spectral and spatio-temporal nano-imaging. Nanoscale heterogeneity defines properties and performance in many functional mat ...

  7. Ultrafast Electron Microscopy Module to Upgrade Existing Commercial Electron Microscopes

    SBC: Niowave, Inc.            Topic: 11a

    This project will develop a flexible longitudinal electron optical system based on high-precision radio-frequency cavities for short and intense electron bunch compressions, both in the energy and time domains. The proposed system is designed to be insertable into an existing transmission electron microscope column to upgrade its temporal resolution. Active phase-space control enables broad ranges ...

  8. Ultra-High Temperature Thermal Barrier Coatings

    SBC: HiFunda, LLC            Topic: 19d

    The US Department of Energy has a stated goal to increase the energy efficiency of turbines, and one well recognized method of achieving this is through the use of ceramic thermal barrier coatings (TBCs). However, state of the art zirconia-based TBCs have a temperature limit of about 1200oC, and new TBC materials that can operate at elevated temperatures of 1300oC and above are needed to continue ...

  9. Two Dimensional Chromatography of Atmosheric Aerosols: A New In-Situ Instrument

    SBC: Aerosol Dynamics Inc.            Topic: 03a

    79160 Organic matter is a major constituent of airborne particles, comprising 20-50% of the PM2.5 mass in many regions; yet, its characterization is difficult. Especially important is the real-time characterization of organic matter at the molecular level. To better understand the effects of organic matter on climate, and to understand sources of these aerosols, better characterization methods a ...
