  1. "ELECTRO-DEPOSITION OF SILICON FILMS FROM LIQUID-METAL SOLUTIONS FOR PHOTOVOLTAIC APPLICATIONS"

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    ELECTRO-DEPOSITION OF SILICON FILMS FROM LIQUID-METAL SOLUTIONS WILL BE INVESTIGATED. THE OBJECTIVE IS TO DEVELOP A LOW-COST PROCESS FOR THE PRODUCTION OF HIGH-EFFICIENCY THIN-FILM PHOTOVOLTAIC DEVICES. SPECIFICALLY, CURRENT-CONTROLLED GROWTH OF A SILICON FILM ON A SUBSTRATE IS ACCOMPLISHED USING A LIQUID-METAL SOLUTION, SUCH AS TIN, AND A SILICON SOURCE ELECTRODE. THE QUALITY OF SILICON GROWN FRO ...

  2. 1 Micron Fiber Optic Receiver for Mil-Aero Environment

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N171031

    In this SBIR effort we will develop a high-power, high-speed photodiode (PD) receiver optimized for operation at 1 micron wavelength based on collaboration with Dr. J.C. Campbells research group at the UVA. Demand of such photonic receiver arose from the urgent need of high performance microwave photonic links that replace the conventional metal cables for better SWaP, immunity to EMI and broader ...

  3. 3D Printing of Nuclear Fuel Assembly Bottom Nozzles

    SBC: INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES INTERNATIONAL, INC.            Topic: 30h

    Metallic 3D printing of nuclear fuel assembly components has the potential to remove unwanted cost, waste, and time from the fabrication process. In addition to the direct manufacturing benefits, design engineers can create fuel assembly components that increase the performance of nuclear fuel assemblies with features that were not manufacturable a few years ago. Because of the reduced build time, ...

  4. A Cloud-enabled Mobile System for Integrated Nuclear Forensic Analysis

    SBC: D-TECH, LLC            Topic: 03a

    Nuclear forensic analysis (NFA) is a complex multi-level process that requires detailed data collection, record keeping, and data exchange management throughout an investigation lifecycle. Currently, forensic data are mostly collected manually using paper forms and forensic digital records that are kept in various spreadsheets or data formats. There are no integrated data standards to ensure the q ...

  7. A MODEL FOR PREDICTING THE PERFORMANCE DETERIORATION IN GAS TURBINE ENGINES

    SBC: Advanced Engineering &research            Topic: N/A

    A MODEL FOR PREDICTING THE PERFORMANCE IMPACT OF ENGINE DETERIORATION IS PROPOSED FOR FEASIBILITY EVALUATION. THIS MODEL WOULD ACCOUNT FOR ROTATING COMPONENT DETERIORATION SUCH AS INCREASED TIP CLEARANCES, SURFACE ROUGHNESS, LEADING EDGE BLUNTNESS AND VAN BOW AND TWIST. THE PROPOSED APPROACH USES A STAGE STACKING METHOD TO ALLOCATE LOSSES THROUGHOUT THE ENGINE WHICH ARE DEPENDENT ON OPERATING TIME ...

  8. A NEURAL NETWORK SOLUTION TO THE REAL-TIME OPTIMAL ALLOCATION OF MARINE CORPS TACTICAL AND C3I ASSETS

    SBC: Ikonix Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE EFFICIENCY WITH WHICH ASSETS ARE ALLOCATED DURING COMBAT HAS USUALLY PLAYED A DOMINANT ROLE IN THE OUTCOME OF THE CONFLICT -OFTEN ECLIPSING ALL OTHER FACTORS, INCLUDING VARIANCES IN FORCE STRUCTURE. THE SOLUTION OF OPTIMAL ALLOCATION PROBLEMS IS NO LESS CRITICAL TO THE DESIGN AND OPERATION OF C3I NETWORKS. THUS, THE ABILITY TO PERFORM THIS ENABLING TASK AS EFFICIENTLY AS POSSIBLE IS VITAL. WE ...

  9. A New Class of Low-Cost, High Capacity Cathode Materials for Next Generation Rechargebale Lithium-ion Batteries

    SBC: NextGen Battery Technologies, LLC            Topic: 14a

    Cathode materials with significantly higher specific capacities than what is currently available are critical to meeting the DOE’s goals of 350 Wh/kg and 750 Wh/L at the cell-level. New materials that are capable of accommodating more than one lithium ion per transition metal can have a transformational impact on the energy density. Manganese-based cathode compositions, while being low cost and ...
