  1. 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 ...

  2. A Low Cost, Absolute Ambient Carbon Dioxide Monitor

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 11

    Although carbon dioxide is monitored worldwide at hundreds of monitoring stations, existing monitoring methods, which rely on the use of high pressure calibration gas cylinders, are both labor intensive and expensive. Thus, there is a pressing need for an affordable, highly-accurate (1 part in 3000) carbon dioxide monitor for the ambient atmosphere. In addition to being extremely accurate, the r ...

  3. Broadly Tunable Quantum Cascade Laser Technology for Remote Sensing

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 01

    National security interests related to the nonproliferation of weapons of mass destruction require the remote detection of trace gases associated with the nuclear fuel cycle. Newly developed, mid-infrared, quantum cascade lasers have the potential to contribute to this application. These small solid state lasers produce relatively high power in the infrared band of light where many gases can be ...

  4. 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. ...

  7. Generation of Pressurized Oxygen by Push/Pull Adsorption

    SBC: EERGC CORP.            Topic: 16

    For efficient operation, coal-fired Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) power plants require high-pressure (400 psi) oxygen for gasification. However, the economic feasibility of these systems is currently limited by the high cost of oxygen. This project will develop technology for generating high pressure oxygen from pressurized steam and atmospheric-pressure air. The approach will c ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Life Prediction of SiC/SiC Composites in Advanced Nuclear Reactors

    SBC: Hyper-Therm High-Temperature Composites            Topic: 26

    Some Generation IV nuclear reactor designs call for the employment of high reactor core temperatures, in order to improve the thermodynamic efficiency of the power generation and efficiently produce process heat. Materials are required that are capable of sustaining temperatures approaching 1000C and also are stable in a high radiation environment. The outer containment of the control rod materi ...

  10. 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 ...
