  1. High Temperature High Efficiency PEM Electrolysis

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 13a

    Electrolysis of water is an important tool for automotive hydrogen refueling and renewable energy storage applications. The current membranes for electrolysis suffer from low efficiency, low mechanical strength and high hydrogen crossover at the high pressures needed for direct refueling. The DOE has identified a need for high-pressure electrolyzer efficiencies to reach 76% based on lower heating ...

  3. Direct Writing of X-ray Gratings Using Zone-Plate-Array Lithography

    SBC: LumArray, Inc.            Topic: 04b

    In the USA there are 15 synchrotron and free-electron-laser facilities, funded primarily by the Department of Energy (DOE); and 52 similar facilities in other countries. Synchrotrons and free-electron lasers are extremely bright sources of x-ray and vacuum-ultraviolet (VUV) radiation. These intense beams are used to study the binding among atoms and many other topics that relate to the ...

  5. Dual Quantum Cascade Laser System for Simultaneous Measurements of 13CH4 and CH3D Methane Isotopologues

    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 ...

  6. Development of low-cost, large volume CZT spectroscopic gamma detectors

    SBC: CAPESYM, INC            Topic: 51b

    CdZnTe remains the material of choice for room temperature semiconductor detection of X- and -ray radiation, but the availability of high performance material is limited and the cost is high. In this project we will build upon our success in crystal growth and annealing processes that have resulted in growth of large diameter single crystal boules and high performance gamma radiation detectors. Th ...

  7. Very Large Area MicroChannel Plate Neutron Detectors for Neutron Scattering

    SBC: NOVA SCIENTIFIC INCORPORATED            Topic: 18a

    The project is developing a new sensor technology that can measure carbon dioxide levels with precision that matches or exceeds the state-of-the-art performance, but will reduce the price dramatically, and will for the first time enable instruments deployed in remote locations to operate unattended for long periods of time. A laboratory prototype was designed, constructed, and demonstrated. It exc ...

  8. Infrared Laser Direct Absorption Spectroscopy for Carbon Isotope Measurements from UAVs

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 17b

    There is a need for extremely lightweight low power instrumentation for real-time measurement of isotopic variants of carbon dioxide (CO2) in ambient air, suitable for use on un-manned aerial vehicles, to allow better quantification of sources and sinks of this major greenhouse gas in remote areas such as the Arctic. The proposing company is developing such instrumentation using infrared laser sp ...

  9. Development of a Fiber Optically Coupled Raman Video Probe for the Non-Destructive Inspection of Concrete in Light Water Reactors

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: 14c

    Concrete is widely used in light water reactor (LWR) constructions as building foundation and support, shielding material and for radiation containment. The importance of concrete in providing protection to LWR structures are found in the containment building, spent fuel pool and cooling towers. The integrity of construction materials like concrete is an important considera ...

  10. "LAPPD Commercialization Fully Integrated Sealed Detector Devices

    SBC: INCOM, INC.            Topic: 38a

    The high energy physics (HEP) community, the scientific and medical communities and the public at large, require the availability of high sensitivity photo- sensors with improved spatial and temporal resolution that can be scaled to large areas, and manufactured in a robust, durable, and compact package at a low cost. Phase I successfully demonstrated the underlying enabling scientific and techni ...
