  1. Biomass energy production

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A18016

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to demonstrate and quantify the feasibility of producing high energy density bio-char by pyrolyzing biomass in a self-sustaining, small-scale reactor. The high energy density bio-char can be stored and then converted to electricity using a direct carbon solid oxide fuel cell developed by Nexceris LLC. PSI’s preliminary analysis and modeling have indicated th ...

  7. Photonically Sampled Direct Wideband Analog to Digital Converter

    SBC: Photonic Systems, Inc.            Topic: A18029

    This SBIR program will develop an analog to digital converter using photonic sampling that is capable of high-resolution direct sampling of all types of radar signals at frequencies from as low as HF to as high as K-band. The enabling technology behind this is photonic sampling. Photonic sampling has extremely low jitter (roughly 3 fs), which is what gives the high performance at high analog input ...
