  2. High Performance Portable Neutron Detector

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: 1012

    A Neutron detection device is an indispensable tool for power, medical, and defense applications. Proliferation of weapons of mass destruction such as nuclear weapons is a serious threat in today`s world. Low cost, low power, high performance, rugged and portable neutron detection devices are highly desirable for these applications. Agiltron proposes an unprecedented fabrication and integration ap ...

  3. Precision Information Environment for Collaborative Emergency Support (PIECES)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: HSB0101003

    Decision makers responding to homeland security incidents must rapidly integrate and manage dynamic, time-sensitive information from many heterogeneous and multimodal information sources. Responders access this information through numerous software applications, all while attempting to collaborate in real-time. Based on the results of our Phase I design effort, we propose to develop and evaluate a ...

  4. Magnetically Switchable Explosives Vapor Isolator(1001-687)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: HSB0101004

    The proposed work details a molecular recognition based explosives pre-concentration and sampling system which can be coupled to a wide variety of current and future commercially available sensors. The system works by initially isolating and concentrating specific explosives from a sample stream through a novel, robust and tunable molecular recognition system. The concentrated molecules are rele ...

  5. Next-Generation, LED-based, Adjustable Spectrum, Pulsed Solar Simulator

    SBC: Spire Corporation            Topic: 02a

    Solar simulators are needed for measuring the performance of solar cells and solar panels. These instruments currently use filtered high-intensity xenon lamps with poor spectral control, high voltage transients that can adversely affect electronic control circuits, lamp aging and a lack of easily-implemented size scaling. What is needed is a more reliable, low-voltage solid-state, spectrum-adjus ...

  6. Photoluminescense for Solar Cell Crack Detection

    SBC: Spire Corporation            Topic: 02b

    In the manufacturing process for photovoltaic (PV) cells and modules, a significant percentage of crystalline silicon wafers and solar cells contain microcracks that are difficult or impossible to detect with the human eye or currently available machine vision systems. These microcracks can propagate through the cells, resulting in power loss and cell breakage, due to mechanical and thermal stres ...

  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. Marx Modulator Optimization for Advanced Accelerators

    SBC: DIVERSIFIED TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 65d

    The next generation of particle accelerators will require large numbers of RF cavities, producing field gradients undreamt of a dozen years ago. The next frontier is high energy, short pulse modulators, continuing the technical thrust begun under recent colliders and numerous X-Band accelerator designs. Modulators to drive the klystrons for these new accelerators must meet aggressive requirements ...

  9. High Strength Silver Sheath for Bi2212/Ag Conductor

    SBC: Supercon, Inc.            Topic: 62a

    This proposal describes an innovative high strength silver alloy for making Bi2212/Ag round wire conductor. To generate magnetic fields greater than 20 T, a new high field superconductor such as Bi2212 is needed. However, Bi2212 is brittle ceramic that can be easily damaged, and its critical current is very strain sensitive. The Bi2212 compound is contained in a silver matrix that is chemically co ...

  10. Efficient manufacture of extreme surface area Microchannel plate devices functionalized by atomic layer deposition thin films

    SBC: Arradiance LLC            Topic: 61a

    The work proposed in this SBIR proposal is is synergistic with the, DOE funded, basic R & amp;D effort of a consortium of national laboratories, universities, and industry, led by Argonne National Laboratory and the University of Chicago for the development of new, large area, photodetector devices. This project proposes to address the commercialization gap that exists between the proofofprinciple ...
