  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. Radar Debris Algorithms and Models for Discrimination

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA07T004

    We are proposing an innovative approach to sensor fusion and target recognition based on transductive inference with support vector machines. Our proposed algorithm will apply innovative discrimination to the fusion of sensor (feature) and contextual scenario information through the development of robust algorithms and software necessary to collect, process, and fuse information from multiple sour ...

  3. Miniaturized Thermoacoustic Cryocooler for Missile Defense Applications(1001-088)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA07T002

    The U.S. military envisions a range of cryocooler systems that can enable specific operational requirements. For missile defense applications, Triton is targeting cooling of infrared focal plane arrays (FPA) in optics which address surveillance, missile threat warning systems and missile seeker systems in general. Triton Systems Inc proposes to develop thermal management solutions for space elec ...

  4. 5V, High Gain, High Sensitivity Photomultiplier Detector

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: 26a

    This project will demonstrate a breakthrough detector for the readout of scintillators used for gamma ray detection in Nuclear Physics experiments. The new detector: (1) will overcome the quantum efficiency and high voltage limits of current photomultipliers (PMTs) and Avalanche Photodiodes (APDs); (2) will offer the possibility of improving scintillator detector resolution at least by a factor ...

  5. High Field Stability Exploration of Second Generation HTS

    SBC: AMERICAN SUPERCONDUCTOR CORPORATION            Topic: 33a

    Low-temperature superconductors have limited usefulness at very high magnetic fields or in high heat load applications, which are representative of some sections in future particle accelerators. In this project, the suitability of second generation (2G) high-temperature superconductor (HTS) wire will be explored for these environments. The characterization of this developing superconductor has b ...

  6. Low AC Loss YBCO Coated Conductor Geometry by Direct Inkjet Printing

    SBC: AMERICAN SUPERCONDUCTOR CORPORATION            Topic: 44a

    Second generation high temperature superconductors BC50offer potential benefits for many electric power applications, including those that require filamentizated conductors with low ac loss, such as transformers and fault current limiters. However, the use of 2G wire in these applications requires the development of both novel multi-filamentary conductor designs with lower ac losses and advanced ...

  7. Sequestration and Separation of Mercury in Wet Flue Gas Desulfurization Systems

    SBC: ENVERGEX LLC            Topic: 21b

    Mercury regulations passed by the EPA will require stringent mercury emission control from wet flue gas desulfurization scrubbers, used in the production of electricity from coal. The first problem is that a portion of the mercury captured by the wet scrubber is re-emitted. The second problem is that FGD by-products, including gypsum, will increase from 31 million tons in 2004 to 86 million ton ...

  8. Efficient Thermal Neutron Position Sensitive Detector Neutron and Electron Beam Instrumentation

    SBC: NOVA SCIENTIFIC INCORPORATED            Topic: 13a

    This project will develop a novel type of thermal neutron counting detector, which will be optimized for the imaging of thermal neutrons with high detection efficiency (greater than 50 percent), spatial resolution (approximately 55 microns), and time resolution (approximately 1 millisecond) for each detected neutron. The counting rate of detector can be as high as 100 MHz with an active area scal ...

  9. Cryo-cooled Yb:YAG Lasers for Advanced Photoinjectors

    SBC: Q-PEAK INCORPORATED            Topic: 15d

    Advanced, high brightness photoinjectors are required for the next generation of linear accelerators and free electron lasers. Current photoinjector lasers suffer from complexities related to the use of multiple amplifier stages to achieve the desired pulse energy. There are also issues related to power scaling. This project will investigate the use of a liquid nitrogen cooled, Yb:YAG, mode-loc ...

  10. React-Wind-Sinter Technology for Bi2Sr2CaCu2Ox

    SBC: Supercon, Inc.            Topic: 33a

    Bi2212, which has the highest Jc of any practical superconductor at fields greater than 15 T, is currently being considered for high-field particle accelerator magnets. In particular, it is attractive for high field magnets that are needed to improve the performance of machines such as the Large Hadron Collider and Muon Collider. However, the processing requirements for Bi2212 are extremely stri ...
