  1. Efficient Extraction of Oil from Microalgae

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: 815

    Microalgae are a promising feedstock for biofuels because of their high oil content, excellent CO2 capture, and ability to use brackish water and non-arable land. The extraction of oil from algae represents a challenging cost barrier to commercial biofuel production. Conventional technologies for algal oil extraction are energy-inefficient, cost-intensive, or non scalable, leading to bar ...

  3. Development of MicroFluidic Palette for Cellular Responses to Chemical Stimuli

    SBC: Bellbrook Labs, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Current research tools to understand tumor cell migration and metastases are limited to linear gradients or constant flow across cells skewing results. Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology developed a tool called the microfluidic palette which exposes cells to chemical stimuli in a static environment overcoming the limitations above. Several improvements are necessary ...

  7. Growth of Large Area CZT Crystals

    SBC: CAPESYM, INC            Topic: MDA08013

    The goal of this program is to produce large area Cadmium Zinc Telluride (CZT) substrates for growth of Mercury Cadmium Telluride (MCT) films for application in IR Focal Plane Arrays. Two growth processes will be pursued in this program. The grown CZT crystals will be processed into substrates. MCT films will be grown on these substrates and their properties will be characterized.

  9. Advancements in Thermal Battery Pellet Manufacture

    SBC: ENSER Corporation, The            Topic: MDA09010

    Thermal batteries are a mission-critical component utilized in virtually every weapon system. All thermal batteries require four types of pellets that comprise the cell stack(s), i.e., the energy-producing portion of the battery. Pellet size (diameter and thickness) and the number of pellets required vary by battery type and application. Pellets are manufactured by compaction of their powdered co ...
