  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. 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 ...

  3. Analysis Tools for Detection and Diagnosis of Biological Threats

    SBC: ALPHA-GAMMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: CBD04113

    DNA microarray technology, in combination with statistical and predictive modeling tools, could be used to evaluate thousands of genes against distinct gene expression patterns induced by chemical/biological agents to provide early identification and speed therapeutic intervention. The overall objective of this Phase II effort is to leverage existing public domain resources and commercial tools t ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Bent Crystals with Large 2d Spacings

    SBC: INRAD OPTICS, INC.            Topic: 21a

    A domestic source of high-quality bent crystal optics is needed to investigate properties of plasmas generated during nuclear fusion research. We propose to develop commercial production of these crystals and bent optics. Spectroscopy and imaging of long wavelength x- rays, known as “soft x-rays” requires crystals with appropriately long interplanar spacings, such as KAP. Research at fusion en ...

  6. Biogeochemical Characterization of Redox Species

    SBC: Analytical Instrument Systems Inc            Topic: 18a

    With the ever-rising problems of drinking water contamination and the treatment of wastewater from landfills, an inexpensive way of sensing containments is required.

  7. Development of an Innovative, High-Efficiency Radon Fan

    SBC: MECHANICAL SOLUTIONS, INCORPORATED            Topic: 11b

    Currently, radon represents a serious health risk within the United States. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that radon causes more than 20,000 deaths per year in the US, and is the second leading cause of lung cancer after smoking. Radon mitigation is typically performed using constant ventilation. However, these inefficient fan systems range in efficiency from 15%-20%, requiri ...

  8. DOSIMETRY AND MONITORING OF AROMATIC AMINES

    SBC: Perfect View Inc.            Topic: N/A

    UP TO 35,000 WORKERS OF THE U.S. CHEMICAL INDUSTRY AND MORE THAN 270,000 WORKERS IN THE PETROLEUM AND COAL-RELATED INDUSTRIES MAY BE EXPOSED DAILY TO CARCINOGENIC AND MUTANOGENIC COMPOUNDS FROM THE AROMATIC AMINE GROUP. COAL GAS, INC. DEVELOPED A VERY SIMPLE HIGH-TECHNOLOGY APPROACH TO MONITORING THE EXPOSURE OF PERSONNEL TO TRACE LEVELS OF POLLUTANTS AND IS PROPOSING TO CONDUCT R & D WHICH WILL E ...

  9. Electrostatic Precipitation System for Radionuclide Particle Collection

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 04a

    To monitor for compliance with nonproliferation treaties such as the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, approximately 80 ground stations around the world collect radionuclide aerosols from the atmosphere and measure the isotopic composition to detect, locate, and characterize nuclear events. These stations process enormous volumes of air to collect minute amounts of the radioactive isotopes ne ...

  10. ENZYMES IMMOBILIZED ON GOLD SURFACES

    SBC: Escagenetics Corp.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP A NEW CLASS OF BIOSENSORS BASED ON THE USE OF COLLOIDAL GOLD DIRECTLY OR DEPOSITED AS A POROUS GOLD FILM. THE KEY TO THE APPROACH ISTHE IMMOBILIZATION OF ENZYMES ON GOLD SURFACES THAT PROVIDE FOR HIGHFLUX, HETEROGENEOUS ELECTRON TRANSFER. THE FEASIBILITY OF CONSTRUCTING THIS NEW CLASS OF BIOSENSORS WILL BE EVALUATED BY THE END OF PHASE I. THE OBJECTIVES ...
