  1. Bounding generalization risk for Deep Neural Networks

    SBC: Euler Scientific            Topic: NGA20A001

    Deep Neural Networks have become ubiquitous in the modern analysis of voluminous datasets with geometric symmetries. In the field of Particle Physics, experiments such as DUNE require the detection of particle signatures interacting within the detector, with analyses of over a billion 3D event images per channel each year; with typical setups containing over 150,000 different channels.  In an ...

  3. Co-Development of Oscillating Water Column (OWC) and Offshore Power Station

    SBC: ROI Engineering LLC            Topic: 13c

    In response to the Water Power Technologies Office “Co-Development of Marine Energy Technologies at Smaller Scales.” We propose a co-development of an “Oscillating Water Column” and the “Offshore Power Station”. This proposal is to design a small scale Oscillating Water Column to provide the “offshore energy” as described as one of the activities needed in the “blue economy”. W ...

  4. Graded Surface Modification Of Alloys For Containment Of Chloride Molten Salts.

    SBC: HELICON CORP            Topic: 11b

    Investigators at the University of Arizona (UofA), and its development partners, Hewlett Packard Inc. (HP) and Helicon Corp., propose to arrest corrosion of high-temperature metal alloys used in molten chloride salts at 800C by a new process for modifying the alloy surfaces. The new process uses the additive manufacturing capabilities compatible with HP 3D Metal in layered compositions combined wi ...

  5. Direct Recycling of Nickel-manganese-cobalt Cathode Materials from Lithium Batteries Using an All-in-one Rotary Kiln Reactor

    SBC: HAZEN RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: 12a

    The Department of Energy (DoE) has identified the important need to recycle, recover, and reuse the critical materials involved in lithium battery (LiB) technology. It is reported that in 2018 the world consumed over 50,000 tons of various lithium and transition metal salts to meet the production of LiBs needed for the worldwide energy storage needs. The market forecast for LiBs suggest that the d ...

  6. Development of Wakefield Accelerating Structures at Ultra-high Frequencies

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: 30c

    The development of a multi-TeV e+e- linear collider is a key priority set by the P5 panel, which established the long-term strategy of the U.S. HEP program. A Two-Beam Acceleration (TBA) is one of the most promising approaches for this facility due to its potential for achieving high efficiency and the ability to accelerate particles with positive and negative charges. However, there are still cha ...

  7. Preventing Biofouling of Oceanographic Sensors Using UV Illumination Powered by a Compact Wave Energy Converter

    SBC: 3newable LLC            Topic: 13c

    Electrical power is scarce at most offshore locations, so oceanographers design buoy systems to consume very little power in order to reduce the frequency of ship voyages to replace batteries. These expensive voyages can cost several tens of thousands of dollars per day. Solar and wind power can recharge batteries, but harvested power is limited and each source has shortcomings. Wave energy operat ...

  8. Fast, Low Kerf-loss Wafering of Silicon Ingots for Low-cost Solar Power

    SBC: Nielson Scientific LLC            Topic: 11b

    Silicon wafers are the single largest cost component within solar photovoltaic modules. To maintain the cost reduction targets outlined in industrial roadmaps, wafer costs need to be significantly reduced. Reducing the cost of wafers requires reducing the kerf-loss and wafer thickness while increasing throughput in tools for processing silicon ingots into wafers. The proposed technology augments t ...

  9. Biorecovery of Nutrients from Municipal Wastewaters with Co-production of Biofuels and Other Bioproducts

    SBC: Microbio Engineering, Inc            Topic: 07a

    Nutrient pollution of lakes, estuaries, coastal areas and other water bodies frequently results in algae blooms, sometimes toxic, and often leading to anoxia, fish kills and dead zones. Efforts to reign-in nutrient pollution, in particular of phosphorus, P, have been lagging and noxious algae blooms make headlines almost daily all over the US and world. This is a problem attracting increasing atte ...
