  1. High Power Ceramic Disk Lasers with Gradient Doping made by Direct Ink Writing

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 25c

    The power output of the high power lasers used in physics research is limited by the materials available for making gain media. Future increases in power require new and better materials. Operation at high power creates great thermal stresses that can lead to birefringence, thermal lensing or physical damage to the host. Effective cooling and small temperature gradients are critical for achieving ...

  2. Large Volume Plasma Generation for CO2 Processing

    SBC: FGC Plasma Solutions LLC            Topic: 20d

    It is attractive therefore to turn Carbon dioxide (𝐢𝐢𝑂𝑂2) which is typically considered a pollutant, into a valuable industrial resource. Plasma has long been known as an attractive method of treating 𝐢𝐢𝑂𝑂2 in order to produce other industrial feedstocks such as CO. For this process to be industrially viable, plasma treatment of 𝐢𝐢𝑂𝑂2 must be improved to minimiz ...

  3. Multi-Stroke Variable Displacement Oscillating Pump for Hydrokinetic Energy

    SBC: RESOLUTE MARINE ENERGY, INC.            Topic: 14c

    Over 1 billion people suffer from the effects of water scarcity. The vast majority of those affected live near a coastline in developing countries, on islands, and in remote communities. To satisfy the potable water needs of a growing world population, experts agree that seawater desalination on a large scale is required. Near-shore ocean waves provide an inexhaustible, consistent, and widely dist ...

  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 ...
