  1. Complex Coolant Fluid for PEM Cell Systems

    SBC: DYNALENE INC.            Topic: 32c

    75554B Fuel cells are an efficient, combustion-less, virtually pollution-free source of power. In particular, Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) fuel cells are ideal for a number of applications, due to their ¿quick¿ warm-up characteristics. However, these fuel cells contain some inherent inefficiencies, which results in waste heat that must be removed rapidly via a coolant ¿ currently, either D ...

  4. Precision Holder Technology for In-Situ TEM Experimentation

    SBC: E A Fischione Instruments, Inc.            Topic: 30b

    75272B Transmission Electron Microscopy is a technique that allows materials to be analyzed to the nanometer and sub-nanometer scales. The next level of materials analysis will require the ability to perform dynamic experimentation within the microscope, which would require specialized specimen holding technology to perform the desired experiments. This project addresses the treatment of a spec ...

  5. An Innovative Technique of Preparing Solar Grade Silicon Wafers from Metallurgical Grade Silicon by In-Situ Purification

    SBC: GT Equipment Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 39a

    75655S The photovoltaics (PV) industry is having difficulty finding enough raw materials to match its rapid growth. In addition, traditional sources of secondary grade polysilicon are no longer readily available at inexpensive prices. Reducing the cost of solar silicon wafers is the key to lowering the price of crystalline silicon solar cells. This project will develop a single-step wafer fabr ...

  7. Model-Based Design of Test Systems for Chemical Protective Clothing

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: CBD02202

    The current methodology for testing the penetration resistance of textile materials to various chemical agents has a number of drawbacks, including significant uncertainties in the resulting data, inefficiency and expense, risk to test personnel, and limited range of test conditions. The objective of the proposed work is to apply unique computer models for textiles with accompanying experimental ...

  8. Hermetic Textile Closure Hardware System

    SBC: SIGMA K CORP            Topic: CBD04110

    Effective collective protection fabrics must have a reliable closure system. During our Phase I Work Plan, Sigma-K began developing a Hermetic Textile Closure Hardware (HATCH) system. The HATCH combines both a magnetic and geometric self locking mechanism that will provide a hermetic seal when closed. Our current Phase I successes include developing self closing samples that can provide a hermetic ...

  9. Investigation of (CaO)x(Al2O3)x for Thermal Insulation and Molten Aluminum Contact

    SBC: Westmoreland Advanced Materials            Topic: 38a

    75253S The beneficiation of bauxite ore, used to produce aluminum and the subsequent refining of the aluminum to specific alloys and/or shapes, is an energy intensive process. Large amounts of heat energy (generated via electrical discharge in the primary process and from the burning of fossil fuel in the secondary process) are lost as a result of the insufficient thermal insulating properties o ...

  10. A HIGH POWER AND HIGH EFFICIENCY, SPACE BASED, NUCLEAR MDH CYCLE, AND ITS TERRESTRIAL SIMULATION USING A CHEMICAL HEAT SOURCE

    SBC: Coal Tech Corp.            Topic: N/A

    A NOVEL CHEMICAL FUEL, FIRED COMBUSTOR IS PROPOSED FOR USE AS A LOW COST HEAT SOURCE TO SIMULATE A CLASS OF NUCLEAR REACTORS, INCLUDING THE SOLID CORE, COLLOID CORE, AND GAS CORE NUCLEAR REACTORS, WHICH OPERATE AT PEAK STAGNATION TEMPERATURES BETWEEN 2000-5000OK. SINCE THIS TEMPERATURE RANGE IS COMPATIBLE WITH NON-EQULIBRIUM, MHD GENERATORS, WE ALSO PROPOSE TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF USING A ...
