  1. Neutron optical device to measure mesoscopic space and time correlations and eliminate quasi-elastic scattering from SANS

    SBC: ADELPHI TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: 08a

    A recent report by the Basic Energy Sciences Advisory Committee entitled “Challenges at the Frontiers of Matter and Energy” pointed to the need to better understand hierarchical and heterogeneous materials, often at the mesoscopic scale. Such structures can be studied by x-ray and neutron scattering techniques, but they do not generally yield narrow signals in momentum or energy space. The nat ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Demonstration of the technological capability for production of neutron-focusing nickel mirrors

    SBC: ELECTROFORMED NICKEL, INC.            Topic: 08a

    Neutron scattering is one of the most useful methods of studying the structure and dynamics of matter. Therefore, a number of new large neutron facilities have recently being constructed, upgraded or planned around the world. Examples include the new, 1.4 billion-dollars Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) at DoE’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and upgrades of ORNL’s High-Flux Isotope React ...

  4. Portable Nanowire Platform for Quasi Real-Time and Ultrasensitive Detection of Microbes

    SBC: Innosense Llc            Topic: 19a

    In situ detection of microbial activity in submerged soils and aquatic sediments can be labor intensive and technically difficult, especially in dynamic environments where data on microbial status is desired. Current approaches for estimating anaerobic microbial activity involve incubating soil/sediment samples. Sophisticated analytical techniques are currently used which are not convenient and so ...

  5. High temporal and spatial resolution measurement of hydrometeor mass for automated assessment of precipitation rate and type

    SBC: Particle Flux Analytics Inc.            Topic: 20d

    The DOE Atmospheric Radiation Measurement program is engaged in long-term measurements at Barrow and Oliktok Pt. Alaska of precipitation climatologies and physical processes. The Particle Flux Analytics Inc. (PFA) Multi Angle Snowflake Camera (MASC) has been operating at Oliktok Point since 2015 providing the ARM community with unprecedented information about hydrometeor structure, size, and falls ...

  6. Enabling scientific discovery from complex data at extreme scales

    SBC: PREMINON, LLC            Topic: 01b

    Statistical machine learning has had substantial impacts on many business areas, including finance, supply chain management, cyber security, bioengineering, and elsewhere – it is the core of companies including Google, FaceBook, TrueCar, and many others. However, extant tools for predictive analytics provide little or no insight into underlying processes. Hence, while machine learning has inargu ...

  7. Ease of use and deployment for a fast, scalable data movement infrastructure

    SBC: VISUS, LLC            Topic: 02b

    In recent decades, High Performance Computing (HPC) has risen as one of the key enablers of innovation in science and engineering. However, industrial adoption has been impeded by the complexity and cost of deploying applications. Problems include the quality, speed, and flexibility of software tools and the specialized expertise required to adapt solutions given the profusion of hardware config ...

  8. A Subcritical Testbed for Fast Neutron Irradiation of Novel Fuels and Cladding in Fast Reactors

    SBC: Niowave, Inc.            Topic: 26c

    Next generation reactor R&D aims to improve overall safety, efficiency, sustainability, and proliferation resistance for economically viable nuclear energy. New reactor design and fuel development rely on novel materials that are resistant to both radiation damage and corrosive environments. However, American nuclear fuel developers face a serious dilemma: there are no existing domestic fast react ...

  9. Optimization of nanosecond transient plasma ignition for clean combustion

    SBC: Transient Plasma Systems, Inc.            Topic: 22c

    Low-temperature plasmas generated by nanosecond electrical pulses, also referred to as transient plasmas, can be used to significantly improve fuel efficiency and reduce emissions by enabling stable ignition in gasoline and natural gas engines in dilute conditions (e.g. applications such as methane capture, where methane is captured from landfills and burned to produce electricity) as well as thro ...

  10. Deep Burn Fuels for Advanced Small Modular Reactors

    SBC: Ultramet            Topic: 29b

    New fuel forms are needed to enable gas-cooled fast fission reactors to operate using a once-through deep burn fuel cycle. These small, modular reactors will have a core life of 30 years and will burn the plutonium-239 that is created in the core as well as other transuranics. Deep burn rapidly and effectively reduces the inventory of transuranics from spent fuel without the need for repeated recy ...
