  1. Technology enhanced science education.

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    There is a troubling decline in the number of US citizens training to become scientists and engineers. There are insufficient numbers of qualified science teachers in the middle schools, where interest in science must be kindled. Technology enhanced learning environments (TELEs), which could improve science education, are not being widely deployed. This Phase I project will customize a TELE to a) ...

  3. Intelligent Molecular Model Kit and Software Suite for Improving High School Chemistry Instruction and Student Achievement

    SBC: MolySym, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Model perception and understanding the spatial structure of organic molecules have historically been a source of difficulty for high school chemistry students. The classic ball-and-stick model, developed in 1865, is still used today to convey the fundamental characteristics of a molecular system. This model is an inadequate representation of a dynamic system, which fails to accurately represent ...

  4. Phased Array Ultrasonic NDE of Plasma Facing Components

    SBC: ACOUSTIC IDEAS, INC.            Topic: 34

    The future of nuclear fusion relies in part on the development of effective plasma facing components (PFCs) that can withstand the intense heat loads, forces, and neutron bombardment of long-pulse, high-power reactor operation. Current PFC designs for the next-generation International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER), which will require thousands of PFCs, involve beryllium (Be) armor bon ...

  5. Hybrid Ceramic/Metallic Recuperator for SOFC Generators

    SBC: Atrex Energy, Inc.            Topic: 15

    Solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) are one of the most efficient and cleanest power generating systems under development. A key component in the SOFC generator is the cathode-air heat exchanger or recuperator, which ensures that the cathode air (and, thereby, the cells) is at a sufficient temperature to permit ion mobility and improve overall SOFC system efficiency by reducing stack losses. However, ...

  6. A Modular, Skid-Mounted Biomass Pyrolysis Unit

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: 01

    Political, economic, and environmental considerations require that the national dependence on petroleum-based transportation fuels, especially imported oil, be reduced by accelerating the development of domestic renewable alternatives. The United States has the potential to generate, sustainably, about 1.3 billion dry tons of biomass per year, and bio-oil derived from this renewable feedstock cou ...

  7. Low Thermal Resistance Graphite-Organic Thermal Interface Material for IGBT Power Modules

    SBC: ADVANCED THERMAL TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: 32

    There is a growing demand for power electronics that can operate under the high temperature and high power conditions that will be encountered in applications such as Hybrid Electric Vehicles. As the coolant temperature used to dissipate heat from the electronics increases, the operation of power semiconductor devices such as Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistors (IGBTs) becomes severly limited, in ...

  8. Temperature Programmed Thermal Desorption Aerosol Mass Spectrometry (TPTDAMS) for Determining Organic Aerosol Composition

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 09

    Aerosol particles have important impacts on visibility, acid deposition, climate, and human health; yet, large uncertainties remain in quantifying their chemical composition and atmospheric transformations. A large part of the anthropogenic aerosol is generated from energy-related activities, and organic compounds are known to constitute a significant fraction of ambient aerosol mass in many loca ...

  9. CAPS-Based Particle Single Scattering Albedo Monitor

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 09

    Aerosol particles affect the radiative balance of the earth directly, by scattering and absorbing solar and terrestrial radiation, and indirectly, by acting as cloud condensation nuclei. It is now recognized that the atmospheric loading of aerosols, generated through human activities, can influence the earth¿s radiation budget in an amount comparable with greenhouse gases. However, uncertaintie ...

  10. A Low Cost, Absolute Ambient Carbon Dioxide Monitor

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 11

    Although carbon dioxide is monitored worldwide at hundreds of monitoring stations, existing monitoring methods, which rely on the use of high pressure calibration gas cylinders, are both labor intensive and expensive. Thus, there is a pressing need for an affordable, highly-accurate (1 part in 3000) carbon dioxide monitor for the ambient atmosphere. In addition to being extremely accurate, the r ...
