  1. Novel Methods to Monitor Health Status and Clinical Laboratory Data: Portable Acquisition, Assessment, and Reporting

    SBC: Mimosa Acoustics Inc.            Topic: OSD09H26

    Mimosa Acoustics will develop a portable binaural audiological device, based on our successful HearID system. HearID is a clinical system for otoacoustic emission and middle-ear power analysis testing; it is FDA and CE-marked. The new system will have the ability to conduct a variety of audiological tests especially for use in hearing-conservation programs, including: flexible otoacoustic emission ...

  2. Catalysts For Electrochemical Conversion Of CO2

    SBC: DIOXIDE MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: 11c

    The object of the proposed work is to develop better processes for the electrochemical conversion of CO2 into a high value chemical in a growing market. CO2 is one of the key causes of global warming. If we can recycle CO2 back into useful products, than the costs of meeting the Nations global warming goals will be substantially reduced. Presently, the use of CO2 feedstocks is limited by the avai ...

  3. Epicyclic Helical Channels for Parametric Resonance Ionization Cooling

    SBC: MUONS INC            Topic: 64b

    Muon beam ionization cooling is a key element in the design of next-generation low-emittance and high-luminosity muon colliders. New approaches in that cooling could greatly improve the performance and capabilities of these colliders. To obtain low-emittance muon beams, a new concept is being developed that combines ionization cooling in a Helical Cooling Channel (HCC) with parametric resonances. ...

  4. A New Paradigm for X-ray Optics Nanopositioning

    SBC: Royston Engineering Research Llc            Topic: 18a

    High resolution X-ray microscopy using synchrotron radiation is a key scientific technique in materials research that has provided insight into the atomic structure of bulk materials, surfaces, interfaces, nanoparticles, nanostructures, and nanodomains. Such detailed understanding into the characterization and behavior of matter allows scientists and engineers to design materials with longer fatig ...

  5. Extreme Sample Environment for Neutron Measurements

    SBC: Materials Development, Inc.            Topic: 19a

    Research on advanced materials is hampered by difficulty in accessing short-lived metastable states that play a crucial role in determining the material & apos;s ultimate structure, properties and performance. In combination with advanced sample environments, DOEs high flux neutron sources such as SNS provide an opportunity to revolutionize advanced materials research by helping to understand how ...

  6. Focal Plane Array Technology for Passive Hyperspectral Standoff Detection

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: CBD10105

    Chemical imaging sensors require focal plane arrays (FPAs) incorporating long wavelength infrared (LWIR) detectors suitable for hyperspectral detection. These detectors require high sensitivity to account for the low photon counts in narrow wavelength bands. The required sensitivity elevates the associated costs, so a need exists for a lower cost LWIR FPA for use with chemical imaging sensors. The ...

  7. Computational Design of Weldable High-Cr Ferritic Steel

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: 22c

    Increasing the steam temperature of supercritical boilers from 1,000F to 1,400F can raise the operating efficiency of next-generation AUSC coal-fired power plants from about 32% to about 42% and address compelling environmental issues, while also enhancing national security, domestic employment, economic stability, balance of trade and U.S. GDP through increased use of domestic coal. Low Cr conten ...

  8. High Energy Density Li-ion Battery with Enhanced Safety, Durability, and Sustainability

    SBC: INVENTEK CORP            Topic: 10e

    Conventional Li-ion cells/batteries for hybrid and electric vehicles have difficulty meeting USABC goals for performance/cost that are required for commercially-viable EV. The prevailing large format pouch/prismatic has the advantage of low packaging weight/volume, 10% at cell level, but is doubled (100% increase) in transitioning to the battery. Aside from the reduced energy density (accommodatio ...

  9. Adjustable High Power Coax RF Coupler without Moving Parts

    SBC: MUONS INC            Topic: 13c

    A 200 kW CW fundamental RF power coupler (FPC) with an adjustable in situ coupling factor would be highly desirable for a number of applications; for example, the 352 MHz light source at APS. The normal process of adjusting the coupling by rotational movement usually requires breaking the vacuum between the coupler and the RF cavity resulting in prolonged down-times and the risk of introducing con ...

  10. Photoinjector Efficiency Enhancement using Surface Acoustic Waves

    SBC: MUONS INC            Topic: 14a

    Current and future synchrotron radiation light sources and free electron laser facilities are in need of improvements in Electron Gun Technology, especially regarding the cost and efficiency of photoinjectors. Novel electron gun features are needed to enhance the intensity and reduce the emittances of electron bunches produced at a high repetition rate using laser excitation. The generation of Sur ...
