The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Low Thermal Resistance Integrated Package and Heat Sink for HEV IGBT Modules

    SBC: ADVANCED THERMAL TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: 06c

    There is a growing demand for power electronics that can operate under the high temperature and high power conditions that will be encountered in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEV). As the coolant temperature used to dissipate heat from electronics increases, the operation of power semiconductor devices such as Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistors (IGBTs) becomes severely limited in order that the safe ...

  2. An Absolute C02 Monitor with Extremely High Accuracy

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 43b

    Carbon dioxide is monitored with high precision at hundreds of monitoring stations, world-wide. Those measurements rely upon frequent calibration using high pressure gas cylinders, which must be certified and then shipped to remote locations. Current calibration procedures are both labor intensive and expensive. Continuous monitoring of CO2 at remote locations presents particularly difficult cali ...

  3. Recovery Act- Vaporization Cooling for IGCC Turbines

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 04a

    Electrical power generation consumes a large fraction of the nations fossil fuel, notably coal, and produces significant CO2 emissions. Gas turbine based cycles such as IGCC are constrained by turbine component temperature limits, and consequently have potential for lower fuel consumption and emissions. A novel, highly effective technology for cooling rotating turbine components has been under exp ...

  4. Chemical Ionization Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometer for Particle and Gas-Phase Organic Speciation

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 32c

    Aerosol particles have important impacts on visibility, acid deposition, climate, and human health, although large uncertainties remain in quantifying their chemical composition and atmospheric transformations. A large fraction of the anthropogenic aerosol is generated from energy-related activities, and organic compounds are known to constitute a significant fraction of ambient aerosol mass. Re ...

  5. High Sensitivity SO2 Monitor using Quantum Cascade Laser IR Absorption

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 32d

    SO2 is an important ubiquitous aerosol precursor with anthropogenic, biogenic and geogenic sources. The sulfate aerosol produced from atmospheric oxidation of SO2 has a negative radiative forcing component that is highly uncertain due to its direct and indirect effects. Due to its potency as a remote clean atmosphere aerosol precursor and its capability to modify cloud properties, SO2 is a `short ...

  6. High Precision C0S Monitor to Constrain the Partitioning of C02 Fluxes

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 43a

    Assessment of CO2 exchange between the atmosphere and the biosphere remains one of the largest uncertainties in predicting carbon sequestration by vegetative uptake on a global basis. Distinguishing between photosynthetic uptake and respiratory emission of CO2 is difficult, due to the small differences between two large parameters, but crucial for determining net ecosystem exchange for CO2 betwee ...

  7. Dual Quantum Cascade Laser System For Simultaneous Measurements of 13CH4 and CH3D Methan Isotopolgues

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 30b

    Methane is the second most important atmospheric greenhouse gas after CO2 yet its global sources and sinks are still inadequately characterized. Monitoring the isotopic composition of atmospheric methane is one of the most promising approaches to closing the methane budget. Detailed process studies of isotopic fractionation associated with methane sinks and sources are also crucial. For both p ...

  8. Development and Characterization of a Compact Aerosol Chemical Speciation Monitor (ACSM)

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 44c

    Aerosol particles have important impacts on visibility, acid deposition, climate, and human health, although large uncertainties remain in quantifying their chemical composition and atmospheric transformations. A large fraction of the anthropogenic aerosol is generated from energy-related activities, and organic compounds are known to constitute a significant fraction of ambient aerosol mass. Or ...

  10. Micromegas Particle Detector

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: 46b

    Improvements in high energy particle accelerator detectors are needed to realize their potential for new discoveries in basic physics. The micromegas detector could achieve the best performance and lowest cost for the large structures required. Reducing critical dimensions and optimizing material choices is expected to increase gain, count rate and stability. Agiltron will use new lithography ap ...
