  4. Advanced Multifilament Wire with Optimized Bi2212 Properties for HEP High Field Magnets

    SBC: Supramagnetics, Inc.            Topic: 40

    Future progress in understanding particle physics will require higher energy collisions, which in turn will require more energy and luminosity. More luminosity means larger apertures and bigger magnets, which in turn will require higher-performance lower-cost superconductors. This project will develop and demonstrate a low cost powder-in-tube (PIT) multifilament Bi2212 process with improved fila ...

  5. A Fast Neutron Source for Material Irradiation using a Superconducting Electron Linac

    SBC: Niowave, Inc.            Topic: 16d

    Next generation reactor R&D aims to produce safer, longer lasting and economically viable nuclear power plants. New designs rely on novel materials that are resistant to both corrosive environments and radiation damage. Testing these novel materials requires an intense fast neutron environment, commonly created with a nuclear reactor or a national laboratory scale accelerator such as the proposed ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. A miniature, low-cost black carbon sensor for unmanned platforms

    SBC: HANDIX SCIENTIFIC Inc.            Topic: 17b

    Achieving a systems-level understanding of science associated with climate change is a key topic within the DOE mission. Light absorbing particles are an important atmospheric constituent and have a direct impact on climate. They also impact air quality and health and human activities play a major role in their abundance and distribution. There is a critical need for improved observational capacit ...

  8. Anti-Breakdown Coatings for High-Gradient Accelerator Structures

    SBC: Omega-P, Inc.            Topic: 39a

    Development of accelerator structures that can sustain acceleration gradients up to 150 MeV/m are required in order to build a future multi-TeV collider with an energy reach beyond present or planned electron-positron colliders. Limitations for operation with high acceleration gradient arise from RF breakdown. High-melting-point insulated coatings are to be applied first to test samples and to p ...

  9. Anti-Breakdown Coatings for High-Gradient Accelerator Structures

    SBC: Omega-P, Inc.            Topic: 39a

    Accelerator structures that can sustain acceleration gradients in the range of 150 MeV/m are required in order to build a future multi-TeV collider with an energy reach beyond present or planned electron-positron colliders. However, limitations arise from RF breakdown and from difficulties in developing the necessary RF drive power. This project will apply high-melting-point insulated coatings t ...

  10. A Phase I Program to the Low Temperature Performance of Li-ion Batteries

    SBC: Yardney Technical Products, Inc.            Topic: 17b

    79758B Safety concerns over the susceptibility of large Li-ion cells to thermal runaway during overcharge are one of the problems preventing the commercialization of these cells. This problem will be addressed by developing new materials that will be substituted for the cell component believed to be involved in the runaway process. In particular, electrolyte systems that form less a resistive i ...
