  1. A 100 W Green Laser for Photoinjection of GaAs Photoemission Guns

    SBC: Q-PEAK INCORPORATED            Topic: 44e

    For synchronous photoinjection of GaAs photoemission guns, a high-average-power green laser light source with an RF-pulse repetition rate in the range of 0.5 to 3 GHz is required to advance fundamental accelerator technology and its application to nuclear physics scientific research. The efficiency of GaAs photocathodes degrade over time. In order to maintain a constant photoemission, the photoinj ...

  2. A Single Aperature Dual-Wavelength Dual Polarized Antenna for AWRAP

    SBC: REMOTE SENSING SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: 834D

    Severe weather impacts our daily lives, society and nation’s economy. From an average of $10B (2005 dollars) annual loss due to tropical cyclones since 1900 to $200B in the commercial shipping industry that is threatened by severe ocean storms to the hundreds of lives and assets being lost in the $20B recreational boating industry. In these cases and many more, accurate now-casting and forecasti ...

  3. An Internal Tin Tube Nb3Sn Conductor with Sn-B Core for Improved Non-Copper Critical Current Density

    SBC: Supercon, Inc.            Topic: 64a

    The high energy physics community seeks high performance multifilament superconducting wire for use in magnets operating in the range of 12-15T or higher. Nb3Sn conductors fabricated by the internal tin (IT) method presently represent the state-of-the-art for these applications. The internal tin tube (ITT) method holds the promise to compete with such conductors if their performance can be raised ...

  4. Biomass to Olefins by Catalytic Fast Pyrolysis

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 02d

    Aerodyne Research Inc. (ARI) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) plan to develop an efficient catalytic system to convert biomass into olefins for the production of hydrocarbons in the gasoline, diesel, and/or jet fuel range by way of catalytic fast pyrolysis. Conversion of lignocellulosic feedstocks from resources as varied as corn stover, grasses, wood, and sugar cane bagasse is ...

  5. Chemical Ionization Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometer for Particle and Gas-Phase Organic Speciation

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 32c

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

  6. Cloud Microphysical Properties from Stellar Aureole Measurements

    SBC: VISIDYNE, INC.            Topic: 31g

    Atmospheric particles act to cool the Earth by reflecting incoming solar radiation if they are small (e.g., aerosols), and they can either warm or cool the earth through thermal absorption and emission if they are large (e.g., cirrus) depending upon their altitude. Climate change monitoring and modeling have improved significantly from advances attributable to the AERONET global network of ground- ...

  7. Components for Heating and Fueling of Fusion Plasmas

    SBC: DIVERSIFIED TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 67b

    Next generation fusion facilities will require many megawatts of RF power from dozens of gyrotrons. Conventional DC power systems, built from WWII era components, have provided the typical approach to powering high-power RF vacuum devices for the last 50 years. Typically, they suffer from reliability and availability problems, and are often only 50 70% efficient. Scaling these conventional RF pow ...

  8. Development of a High-power Motor/Generator for the ARPA-E Hub-Less Flywheel

    SBC: BEACON POWER CORP.            Topic: 71a

    Recognizing the advantages of flywheels in rapid-response, high cycle-life applications, ARPA-E has funded Beacon Power to develop critical components for a low cost flying ring hub-less flywheel under the GRIDS program. The funded system will provide 100 kW for 1 hour for firming and smoothing of intermittent-renewable power generation. For this large, low-cost flywheel to be applicable to either ...

  9. Dual Quantum Cascade Laser System For Simultaneous Measurements of 13CH4 and CH3D Methan Isotopolgues

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 30b

    Methane is the second most important atmospheric greenhouse gas after CO2 yet its global sources and sinks are still inadequately characterized. Monitoring the isotopic composition of atmospheric methane is one of the most promising approaches to closing the methane budget. Detailed process studies of isotopic fractionation associated with methane sinks and sources are also crucial. For both p ...

  10. Durable ALON Windows for High Power Accelerator Applications

    SBC: SURMET, CORP.            Topic: 13d

    Materials currently used for high power RF accelerator applications are typically opaque in visible wavelengths. The use of ALON Optical ceramic will combine a high level of RF performance while simultaneously allowing the inside of superconducting cavities to be monitored for issues such as arcing. Scientist at Surmet will work closely with scientists at Thomas Jefferson Labs to collect the neces ...
