  1. Very Large Area Microchannel Plate Neutron Detectors

    SBC: NOVA SCIENTIFIC INCORPORATED            Topic: 18a

    NOVA Scientific, Inc., teamed with the Electronics Group of Oak Ridge National Laboratory, proposes to construct very large area Microchannel Plate neutron detectors. The applications of these much larger format detectors will serve an exceptionally broad range of government agencies from neutron scattering detectors for DOE to nuclear material panel detectors for NNSA, and ultimately to nuclear m ...

  2. Design and Development of Radiation Hardened ROIC for Multi-color LWIR/VLWIR Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: Magnolia Optical Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA05T009

    Radiation Hardened Multi-color infrared (IR) focal planes are required for MDA/SMDC systems applications . Key to meeting these system requirements is to develop multi-color radiation hardened HgCdTe focal plane arrays for LWIR band ( 7-14 microns) and VLWIR band with wavelength of greater than 14 microns with high pixel uniformity, reduced readout noise, improved resolution, and higher temperatur ...

  3. Full-spectrum Integrated Reaction Evaluation and Synthesis (FIRES)

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA05T017

    Highly energetic chemical processes play a central role in many military and commercial applications. For example, spectral emissions from missile plumes, arising from high-velocity chemical interactions of exhaust gases with the atmosphere, are used to detect, track, and identify threat targets. Detailed, quantitative knowledge of the energy-dependent chemical reaction cross sections and rates i ...

  4. Catalytic Coal Gasification

    SBC: Great Point Energy, Inc.            Topic: 10d

    79817 Although U.S. coal reserves are large enough to ensure energy security for the U.S. for several centuries, dependence on foreign natural gas and oil continues to grow because technologies for producing power with these fuels have an economic advantage over coal-based integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) technology. Yet, IGCC technology is a highly efficient and environmentally frie ...

  5. Ultra-high Productivity Metal Membranes for Hydrogen Production Applications

    SBC: Hy9 Corporation            Topic: 19c

    78524 Durable, ultra-high productivity, low-cost hydrogen membranes for water-gas shift membrane reactors have been identified by the DOE as critical for low cost hydrogen production from coal or other fuels. The DOE has set aggressive membrane cost and performance targets, which, if met, promise to revolutionize hydrogen production. This project will develop a novel process for producing high q ...

  6. An Automated Sample Handling Workcell for the SNS Liquids Reflectometer

    SBC: Square One Systems Design            Topic: 23a

    78887 When completed, the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) will provide unprecedented opportunities for performing groundbreaking neutron science. Two reflectometers are planned for the SNS, one optimized for the measurement of liquid surfaces and the other for the measurement of magnetic materials. The SNS¿s high neutron flux will allow these instruments to collect complete data sets in minu ...

  7. Improved SiC Materials for High Power Electronics

    SBC: PHOENIX INNOVATION, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Silicon has long been the semiconductor of choice for high-voltage power electronic applications. Recently, SiC has attracted attention because SiC is projected to have better performance than silicon. [1] SiC power switching devices have yet to becommercialized, largely due to SiC crystal defects, most notably the device-killing micropipe defect, which does not permit high total current parts t ...

  8. A Tunable Interferometric Random Optical Cross-Switch

    SBC: Scientific Solutions, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A random access, solid-state, optical cross-switch capable of 770 channel discrimination in the telecommunications C-band is designed and proven as an alternative to current thin-film WDM devices and as a mechanically robust alternative tomicroelectromechanical (MEMS) WDM devices. The device may be used in multiplexing (mux), demultiplexing (demux), or complete cross-switch configurations, and is ...

  9. Novel heterojunction diodes for High Power Electronics

    SBC: VIATRONIX            Topic: N/A

    The wide-bandgap semiconductors GaN and SiC hold great promise for high temperature and highpower electronic devices. This is due to the attractive properties these materials possess, such as wide energy bandgaps, high breakdown fields, high thermalconductivities, and high saturated electron velocities. In addition, GaN and SiC have adequate electron mobilities and can readily be doped n and p ty ...
