  1. Enabling Technology- Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Energy Demands in the Meat Production Industry via Scaling Advanced 3D Culture Bioreactors

    SBC: cambridge crops, Inc.            Topic: G

    Food production, and in particular animal-derived meat products, are a major source of green-house gases, compounded by the remarkable inefficiency in biomass conversion (grain to dense muscle tissue in meat), along with growing challenges with food safety, quality and nutrition. To address this growing problem, we propose to exploit the emerging field of cellular agriculture (tissue engineering o ...

  3. Low Power Terahertz Optoelectronic Switch

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: 16a

    In spite of the promise of terahertz frequency range, the maturity of terahertz technologies, such as sources or detectors, remains relatively weak In particular, ultrafast optoelectronic switches are a key component to both sources and detectors, but current versions of them require too much power to be commercially viable, particularly for applications involving detector arrays The overall objec ...

  4. Novel Membranes for Electrochemical Compressors

    SBC: Giner ELX, Inc.            Topic: 19c

    Hydrogen compression represents a key technical challenge for the widespread use of Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEV). To dispense hydrogen to a FCEV tank, hydrogen must be compressed to a minimum of 875 bar. Conventional compressors account for over half of the refueling station’s cost, have poor reliability, and insufficient flow rates. To enable the widespread use of FCEVs, an additional maj ...

  5. X-DSMSND: A Neutron Camera with Integrated Pixel Read-Out

    SBC: Radiation Detection Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 17b

    There is a need for compact, high-efficiency, and high spacial-resolution neutron scattering imagers. Improvements in neutron detectors for use at high-flux pulsed neutron sources are required for materials research involving neutron scattering experiments conducted at Department of Energy (DOE) laboratories, including single crystal diffractometers, neutron reflectometers, and time of flight (TOF ...

  6. Diaphanous diamond x-ray beam imaging system

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 13a

    The goal of the research is to provide pixelated diamond x-ray detectors with the required readout electronics for transmission imaging of hard and soft x-ray beams to facilitate the use of dynamic focusing at advanced light source facilities. This program investigates the use of diamond detectors and the associated readout electronics for x-ray imaging. The present technology, developed by Stony ...

  7. Electrical Power from Thermal Energy Scavenging in High Temperature Environments

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: T3

    Physical Sciences Inc. and Purdue University propose to develop a novel approach to scavenging heat from high intensity thermal environments encountered during space missions and converting this thermal power to electrical power at high efficiency.  Examples include extremely hot heat shields during vehicle entry into planetary atmospheres (Mars/Venus probes) and during high speed ascent thro ...

  10. STTR Phase I: ActivSignal Protein Profiling from Serum Exosomes for the Early Detection of Pancreatic Cancer

    SBC: Activsignal, LLC.            Topic: BM

    This STTR Phase I project will develop a transformative platform for inexpensive screening for pancreatic cancer detection, based on profiling of cancer-related proteins from a small blood draw. Pancreatic cancer is one of the deadliest types of cancer, killing over 50,000 each year in the US, and with a five-year survival rate below 7%. However, currently there are no reliable diagnostic tests fo ...
