  1. A CLEAN HELIUM COMPRESSOR/EXPANDER FOR LONG LIFE CRYOGENIC SERVICE

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    CRYOGENIC HELIUM REFRIGERATORS AND LIQUIFIERS CONVENTIONALLYEMPLOY OIL LUBRICATED POSITIVE DISPLACEMENT COMPRESSORS AT THE WARM END AND FREQUENTLY USE PISTON TYPE EXPANSION ENGINES AT THE COLD END. THESE SYSTEMS REQUIRE EXTENSIVE AND VIGILANT MAINTENANCE TO CONTROL CONTAMINATION FROM LUBRICATING OIL AND ITS VOLATILE COMPONENTS MIGRATING TO THE COLD END. HENCE THE NEED FOR LOW MAINTENANCE COMPRESSO ...

  2. Advanced ICRF Antennas for Fusion Energy Devices

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: 67b

    Abstract Ion cyclotron range of frequency (ICRF) power is anticipated to be a primary auxiliary heating source in next step tokamak experiments like ITER. From a technological perspective, electrical breakdown is a significant challenge for ICRF utilization in present experiments and will become more challenging for future devices like ITER and other reactors. An ICRF system utilizes an antenna to ...

  3. Advanced Metallic-Silicon Carbide Composite Claddings for Improved Damage Tolerance

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: 29b

    The recent events at the Fukushima nuclear power plant highlight the need for enhanced accident tolerance. Of particular concern is the overheating of standard zirconium alloy cladding in a loss of coolant accident (LOCA). One of the leading candidates for future claddings is a silicon carbide (SiC) composite. However, it is clear that due to the inherent brittle nature of ceramics and the intrins ...

  4. ALL-METAL, DEMOUNTABLE CRYOGENIC SEAL

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    IN MOST CRYOGENIC SYSTEMS, THE PIPING JOINTS IN COLD REGIONSOF THE SYSTEM ARE MADE BY WELDING OR SOLDERING. THIS IS ESSENTIAL BECAUSE EXISTING DESIGNS OF CRYOGENIC PIPE SEALS CANNOT BE RELIED ON NOT TO LEAK. ANY SUCH LEAKS INTO THE COLD BOX REDUCE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE INSULATION, THEREBY REDUCING THE EFFICIENCY OF THE REFRIGERATOR. WELDEDJOINTS MAKE REPLACEMENT OF COMPONENTS DIFFICULT AND HAVE ...

  5. A Novel Microfludic Device for Drug Toxicity Studies

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: CBD10103

    Current drug discovery and development efforts are severely limited by expensive animal trials and oversimplified in vitro models. Results obtained from in vitro models are not predictive of in vivo toxicity owing to significant difference from the in vivo physiological conditions. In this context, we propose to develop and demonstrate a novel microfluidic device that reproduces the physiological ...

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

    SBC: ELECTROFORMED NICKEL, INC.            Topic: 15a

    Neutron scattering is one of the most useful methods of studying the structure and dynamics of matter. These methods require large installations at national laboratories, such as Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and other facilities constructed or planned in the US and around the world. These facilities serve a large and diverse community ...

  7. Hermetic Seals for Chemical/Biological Protective Garments

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: CBD13109

    Interfaces on existing military chemical/biological protection garments are not designed to fully eliminate macroscopic and microscopic air gaps at folds, fabric surfaces, or hook-and-loop closures, and thus do not provide a hermetic barrier against exposure. Creare is developing hermetic garment closure systems that seal macroscopic and microscopic gaps at interfaces and closures and provide high ...

  8. Infectious Disease Diagnostics and Differentiation of Viral vs. Bacterial Infections for Point ofCare Applications

    SBC: GENECAPTURE            Topic: CBD15C001

    GeneCapture, Inc. is proposing to develop a rapid in vitro diagnostic prototype using our patented molecular-based CAPTURE (ConfirmActive Pathogens Through Unamplified RNA Expression) assay. Based on the results and experience gained in our Phase I STTR contractHDTRA1-16C-0061: Infectious Disease Diagnostics and Differentiation of Viral vs. Bacterial Infections for Point of Care Applications, we p ...

  9. Microfluidic High-throughput Platform for Determining Kinetic Constants of Enzyme Variants

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: CBD10107

    Current high-throughput platforms rely on labeled substrates that produce detectable spectroscopic signals upon reaction for monitoring enzyme catalytic activity. Add to that the high price tag for these instruments, ranging from several hundred thousand to millions of dollars, and there is a clear need for alternate solutions for a label-free, low-cost, high-throughput enzyme screening platform. ...

  10. Modular Undersea Compressed Air Energy Storage (UCAES) System

    SBC: BRAYTON ENERGY, LLC            Topic: 58a

    One of the foremost issues confronting our nation is that of energy security. Lessening our dependence on foreign fossil fuels necessitates progress and growth in the renewable energy sector. However, widespread adoption of clean energy currently faces the challenge of power consistency a dilemma rooted in the problem of storage. This need for reliable and efficient energy conversion and stora ...
