The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Spatially-Resolved Microbial Activity Probe Using Infrared Measurements of Nitrous Oxide and Methane Isotopes in Soil

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 22b

    Soil health is an important factor in ensuring long term agricultural production and food security- Soil microbial activity is crucial to nutrient cycling and soil fertility, but it is strongly dependent upon environmental variables, such as temperature, humidity, and nutrient and oxygen content- Technology that probes soil microbial activity in real time with spatial fidelity is needed to better ...

  2. UV/Near-IR Aerosol Absorption Monitor

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 23c

    Light-absorbing aerosols can influence the global radiation budget and thermodynamic balance of the planet by reducing the amount of sunlight reaching the surface and heating their surroundings- At present, most aerosol absorption measurement techniques collect the airborne samples on a filter substrate and then measure light attenuation due to the collected samples- The filter-based methods usual ...

  3. Novel Fluorinated Ionomer for PEM Fuel Cells

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 17a

    Commercial proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cell technology typically relies on the same type of ionomer in the catalyst layer as are used for the fuel cell membrane- However, the desired properties for the ionomer in the catalyst layer and the ionomer used in the membrane should be different- This results in poor fuel cell performance particularly for low-platinum and high-power operations- Th ...

  4. Innovative Bilayer Microporous Layer for PEM Fuel Cells

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 17b

    In polymer electrode membrane fuel cells, gas diffusion media plays a critical role in reactant gas diffusion and water management- Often, a gas diffusion media that has excellent water removal properties under high humidity may not perform well under dry conditions, or vice versa- Therefore, it is essential to develop a robust gas diffusion media design which meets the performance requirements ac ...

  6. Optical Probe for Rapid In-Situ Survey of Soil Moisture and Carbon

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: 22b

    An important goal of current biological research is being able to capture and adequately model the complex processes that mediate subsurface-microbe-plant-atmosphere interactions and responses- In particular, computing hardware has advanced to the point where high resolution biogeochemical conditions can be coupled to genomics-informed reactive transport models to study and visualize three-dimensi ...

  7. Controlled Porosity and Surface Coatings for Advanced Gas Diffusion Layers

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: 17b

    Polymer electrolyte fuel cells are a leading candidate to replace internal combustion engines for light duty vehicles, but their performance is below current targets- The gas diffusion layers in the fuel cell are one component that limits the performance- These limits can be addressed by structuring porosity in the gas diffusion layers to enhance transport mechanisms and provide greater durability ...

  8. Portable Hyperspectral Multiphoton Excitation Fluorescence Lifetime Microscopy Imager

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: 25a

    Discovering the real-time functions/dynamics of the cells in living organisms is a central goal of numerous biological studies- In plant biology, advanced knowledge of cell metabolism (a key cell function) could substantially accelerate the progression of cutting-edge bioengineering (e-g-, metabolic engineering) research aimed at improving modern agriculture and bio-energy production- However, pla ...

  9. The Ga-based Solid State Photomultipliers

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 30a

    The design of future calorimeters used in nuclear physics experiments are limited by existing photodetector technologies, the photomultiplier tube and the silicon photomultiplier- The former requires high voltage, is not compact, and is sensitive to magnetic fields, where the latter is not radiation hard and is limited in area due to dark noise- The fundamental silicon photomultiplier design is to ...

  10. Expanding Access to Electronic Property Modeling in Scintillator Crystal Growth and Development

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 03a

    The development of radiation detection materials would benefit with greater access to computational models that relate physical traits seen in manufacture with complex energy transitions occurring in the material that control operating performance. However, the HPC requirements behind these models remain beyond the reach of most businesses involved in this small yet vital field impacting National ...
