  1. Development and Commercialization of Novel Two-Color X-ray Photon Counting Pixel Array Detector

    SBC: RAYONIX, LLC            Topic: 09a

    Advanced new and upgraded synchrotron X-ray beamlines and sources are being constructed worldwide, and these facilities require fast new X-ray detectors to complement them and foster new scientific applications. In particular, new detector capabilities are desirable in the time domain, for the study of fast material and molecular kinetics, in the intensity domain for keeping up with brighter X-ray ...

  2. Integrated Nanomembrane based Chemical Field Effect Transistors (ChemFETs) for Groundwater Monitoring

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: 19a

    Redox sensitive heavy metals - chromium, iron, manganese, and copper have attracted a great deal of attention around the world for their impact on human health and environment. It is beneficial to study the temporal dynamics of metal ion concentrations and coupled biogeochemical reactions. Traditional systems are expensive to use with costly and bulky instruments, and are not suitable for field mo ...

  3. Adaptive MPI: Providing Dynamic RTS Support for Large-scale MPI Applications

    SBC: CHARMWORKS, INC.            Topic: 02b

    High Performance Computing technology has advanced significantly. Advanced parallel computers are being built, with DOE leadership. Yet, the American engineering/manufacturing industry has not leveraged parallel computing at a significant level, partly because of the challenging nature of modern simulation software. US competitiveness in manufacturing may suffer due to its ineffective utilization ...

  4. Long-term Radiation Rugged Rotary Vacuum and Water Seals in Heavy-Ion Accelerators

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: 26f

    The Department of Energy’s Office of Nuclear Physics Isotope Development and Production for Research and Applications Program has identified a need for materials that will survive high radiation environments to support next generation rare isotope beam facilities. Specifically, long-lifetime, rotary vacuum and water seals are needed to survive 0.5 – 15 MGy/month. Current gaskets and seals do n ...

  5. Automotive-qualified SiC DMOSFETs with integrated Schottky Rectifiers

    SBC: GENESIC SEMICONDUCTOR INC.            Topic: 14b

    Reducing the size, weight, and increasing the efficiency of automotive traction power inverters requires the development of novel high-voltage, high current silicon carbide high-speed transistors and rectifiers, since the existing silicon technology is severely limited in terms of operating temperature, frequency and energy efficiency. However, the non-optimized device and manufacturing technology ...

  6. Fiber-Optic Sensor for Simultaneous Measurement of Temperature and Pressure

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: 29a

    Continued use of nuclear power is critical to meeting carbon emission goals and ensuring national security. Nuclear power production will rely on both current generation (LWR and PWR) as well as next generation designs including very-high-temperature, molten-salt, supercritical- water-cooled, gas-cooled, sodium-cooled, and/or lead-cooled reactors. The development and deployment of these high tempe ...

  7. NEMoSys: A Platform for Autonomous Mesh Refinement and Solution Verification

    SBC: Illinoisrocstar, L.L.C.            Topic: 29d

    Significant amounts of time and resources are spent generating and maintaining meshes for modeling and simulation by engineers and scientists in industry, government, and academia. Beyond mesh generation, one major problem complex multiphysics software, such as those used in nuclear energy software, currently faces is the complex transfer of quantities between meshes during high-performance simula ...

  8. Processing Mixed Salts and CO2 Utilization

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: 15e

    There are abundant, valuable mineral resources available in mixed sea salts, bitterns, and brines. These mineral resources are generally not being exploited because the separating products from these salt mixtures is challenging and cost prohibitive. In some cases, these mixed salt systems are not considered as waste because they have simply been stockpiled and are awaiting a practical processing ...

  9. Abrasion/Impact Resistant Coatings for Wind Turbine Blade Protection

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: 15a

    In most wind turbine cases, in the absence of maintenance and repair the polymer composite blades’ service life can be significantly diminished compared to original estimates, and the overall turbine efficiency can severely suffer. Current repair products such as epoxy-based fillers and/or solvent-based paints have very limited abrasion-resistancecapabilities. In addition, wind protection tapes ...

  10. Development of Novel Mesoporous Substrates for a Stable Liquid-metal Plasma-material Interface under Ultra Long-pulse Plasmas

    SBC: Energy Driven Technologies, LLC            Topic: 20d

    One daunting challenge facing future plasma burning fusion reactors is the extreme conditions that plasma facing components are exposed to. Extreme particle and heat fluxes exceeding 10-20 MW/m2 drive traditional material surfaces out of equilibrium and induce topographical and compositional changes that can have deleterious effects on the plasma edge and, ultimately, the confinement of fusion pla ...
