  3. Self-Powered Wireless Sensors for Fossil Energy Based Turbine Systems

    SBC: MESOSCRIBE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 21d

    SelfPowered wireless sensors are needed on hightemperature rotating turbine engine components for real time sensing of component health. Conventional temperature, pressure and strain sensors use wired connections and slip rings which are not desired. Conventional wireless technology uses transmitters containing active semiconductors which degrade upon high temperature exposure. Although numerous w ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Non-Destructive Technique for Measurement of Electron Bunch Longitudinal Charge Distribution

    SBC: Advanced Energy Systems, Inc            Topic: 12b

    Measurement of the longitudinal charge distribution of short electron bunches moving with relativistic velocities is among the major challenges in the domain of accelerator diagnostics. The strict control of the longitudinal distribution is critical for the operation of X-ray Free Electron Lasers (FELs) and Energy Recovery Linacs (ERLs). Several techniques are presently employed; however, none of ...

  7. High-Power High-Eefficiency Amplifiers for Ssynchrotron Light Sources

    SBC: Green Mountain Radio Research Company            Topic: 13d

    Accelerators used in synchrotron light sources require megawatts of radio-frequency energy. They currently employ vacuum-tube power amplifiers or conventional solid-state amplifiers that are inefficient and therefore consume a great deal of prime electrical power. We will review available transistors, analyze high-efficiency power-amplifier techniques, and experimentally evaluate candidate amplifi ...

  8. Ultra High Power NSOM Probe Based on Low Loss High Refractive Index Contrast Nanoscale Tip Integrated with Laser and Detector

    SBC: Optonet, Inc            Topic: 16b

    Near-field scanning optical microscope (NSOM) offers the use of a nano-dimension light energy source with a diameter much smaller than the wavelength of light to achieve resolutions significantly (around 10 times) better than that of the usual optical microscope. NSOM has found wide usages and become an important measurement instrument for nano-technologies, nano-manufacturing, optical technologie ...
