The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. An Artificial Myocardium for Pediatric Support

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The ultimate objective of this proposed program is the commercialization of a neonate ventricular assist device (VAD). Although VADs, both implantable and paracorporeal, have become an important surgical option for adult patients with myocardial failure unresponsive to less aggressive therapy, no VADs are commercially available for short-term use in small infan ...

  2. ECM Bioscaffold for ASD Repair

    SBC: ACELL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This Phase I proposal seeks support to evaluate the feasibility of developing an extracellular matrix (ECM) biologic scaffold as a repair device for atrial septal defects (ASD). ASDs are one of the most common forms of congenital heart disease and account for approximately 30-40% of all congenital heart defects seen in adults. Closure of an ASD can be performed ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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, ...

  5. Directed Differentiation of Embryonic Stem Cells using Phage Displayed Ligands

    SBC: OCATA THERAPEUTICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The ability to culture human embryonic stem cells generated a great deal of excitement about their vast potential for treating a variety of human diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, neurological, retinal and skin disorders to name a few. Unlike adult stem cells, embryonic stem cells have indefinite growth potential and the potential to develop into any t ...

  6. Next Generation Solar Cells Based on Nanostructures

    SBC: ADVANCED DIAMOND SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: AF06274

    Advanced Diamond Solutions, Inc. proposes the development of a novel high efficiency solar cell design based on amorphous diamond nanotip thermoelectric power generation properties. Amorphous diamond has a unique set of material characteristics stemming from its combination of graphitic, diamond and carbon-nanotube structures. Amorphous diamond inherently possesses numerous discrete energy state ...

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


    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 ...
