  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. 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 ...

  6. Elasto-Hydrodynamic Seal for sCO2 Applications

    SBC: Ultool, LLC            Topic: 37q

    Supercritical CO2 (sCO2) power cycles are superior over traditional water based, air-breathing, direct-fired, open Brayton cycles or indirect-fired, closed Rankine cycles in terms of efficiency and equipment size. They hold great potential in fossil fuel power plants, nuclear power production, solar power, geothermal power, and ship propulsion. To unlock the potential of sCO2 power cycles, technol ...

  7. 32a Fiber Pumped Ho:Sesquioxide Ceramic Materials for Short Pulse Thin disk Lasers

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 32a

    Intense short pulse lasers are playing increasingly important role in high-energy physics research. Laser based electron accelerators are innovative tools to obtain GeV to TeV electron energies for high-energy particle physics experiments. The development of such lasers puts stringent challenges on the very limits of the laser materials themselves. The goal of this project is to develop Ho:sesquio ...

  8. 40-T Superconducting Solenoid for Particle Physics Experiments

    SBC: Novum Industria LLC            Topic: 33b

    In this Phase I STTR program, we propose to develop a conceptual design of a 40-T, ϕ2-cm-warm- bore superconducting solenoid magnet for use in high energy particle physics experiments, e.g., muon ionization cooling, by combining a Low Temperature Superconducting background magnet and a High Temperature Superconducting insert magnet. High Temperature Superconductors must be employed for very-high- ...

  9. Hybrid Gas Coal Combustion System with Energy Storage

    SBC: ENVERGEX LLC            Topic: 25a

    The significant growth of renewable energy has resulted in significant challenges for existing power generation facilities coping with the variable nature of said renewables. The variability strains grid management resources and has led to an increased requirement for off-design operation of power generation sources as intermittent or cyclic. This results in increased maintenance costs and loss of ...

  10. Microencapsulated Salt Hydrate Based Filaments for FDM 3D Printing

    SBC: TCPOLY, INC.            Topic: 16a

    Building energy consumption for heating and cooling accounts for a large portion of energy usage and CO2 emissions in our country. Thermal energy storage (TES) materials (such as phase change materials (PCMs)) have the potential to increase a building’s thermal mass and provide flexibility to time‐shift demand. Hence, PCMs can be used to reduce demand changes, take advantage of time‐of-use r ...
