  1. X-Band Bunched Electron Injector

    SBC: Fm Technologies Inc            Topic: 66e

    The development of high-current, short-duration pulses of electrons has been a challenging problem for many years. High current pulses are widely used in injector systems for electron accelerators, both for industrial linacs as well as high-energy accelerators for linear colliders. Short-duration pulses are also used for microwave generation, in klystrons and related devices, for injectors to perf ...

  2. Wireless Sensor Platform for Dry Spent Fuel Cask Monitoring

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 31a

    Reactor cores in commercial power plants produce spent nuclear fuel which is discharged every 3-4 years. There is currently a pressing need to safely store spent fuel for long periods (decades to centuries) using dry storage systems. Such storage requires monitoring to ensure safe conditions as the waste decays. The system must meet challenging requirements: operate at 200 C, withstand high rad ...

  3. Wave-Powered Desalination System

    SBC: RESOLUTE MARINE ENERGY, INC.            Topic: 16a

    Over 1 billion people suffer from the effects of water scarcity. The vast majority of those affected live near a coastline in developing countries, on islands, and in remote communities. To satisfy the potable water needs of a growing world population, experts agree that seawater desalination on a large scale is required. Near-shore ocean waves provide an inexhaustible, consistent, and widely dist ...

  4. Volatility and Polarity Separated Total Organic Aerosol using Thermal Desorption Modulated Chromatography

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 31c

    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. Rece ...

  9. Ultracompact laser ceilometer for boundary layer and cloud height retrievals; 20(c)

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: 20c

    The advent of sensor networks to gather atmospheric data for weather and climate prediction on large spatial and temporal scales is crucial to the advancement of our understanding of many different important processes that make up such predictive models. A prime example is the height of the atmospheric boundary layer, which is used to parameterize boundary layer transport in numerical weather pred ...

  10. Tl-based elpasolites for radiation detection

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

    Preventing the proliferation of nuclear materials is critical in maintaining national security and safety. One key method is to identify Special Nuclear Materials (SNM) through their characteristic gamma-ray radiation and neutron emissions. None of the detectors available at present meet the key requirements of high energy resolution, high detection efficiency and low cost. The goal of the propose ...
