  1. Low Cost Large Scale PEM Electrolysis for Renewable Energy Storage

    SBC: Proton Energy Systems, Inc.            Topic: 01a

    Solar and wind energy are the most likely candidates to meet our future energy needs based on the available capacity. The problem is that these renewable sources are not consistently accessible, and thus storage must be an integral part of the energy solution. Hydrogen generation via proton exchange membrane (PEM) water electrolysis is one attractive solution, but the life cycle cost of the elec ...

  2. High-Gradient Two-Beam Electron Accelerator

    SBC: Omega-P, Inc.            Topic: 65a

    In a two-beam accelerator, a high-current drive beam imparts energy to a low current test beam by generating microwave power that flows from one beam to the other. The largest project of this sort is CLIC, located at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland, that is being designed for operation at an electron-positron center-ofmass energy as high as 3 TeV. Technical complexity and low efficiency characterize t ...

  3. High Current Cold Cathode Employing Diamond and Related Materials

    SBC: Omega-P, Inc.            Topic: 64e

    Thermionic cathodes are in use in an overwhelming majority of vacuum electronics devices, including high-power RF sources used to drive particle accelerators. These cathodes do not operate reliably or have long lifetime if their current density exceeds 5-10 Amperes/cm2. Artificial diamond and related materials, produced by chemical vapor deposition, appear to be an attractive alternative, which co ...

  4. Thermochemically Integrated Solid State Hydrogen Separator and Compressor

    SBC: FuelCell Energy, Inc.            Topic: 12d

    With the depletion of fossil fuel reserves, hydrogen-based energy is becoming increasingly significant. Production, purification and compression of hydrogen represent key technical challenges. Hydrogen is most commonly produced from steam methane reformers, by gasification or as a refining or chemical system off-gas. All of these production systems require purification and compression steps and ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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. ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Electrochemical Polymer Precursor Generation (EPPG)

    SBC: Skyre, Inc.            Topic: 23c

    Continued global dependence on fossil fuels and concomitant release of CO2 has driven a societal push to mitigate CO2 emissions, largely through various means of sequestration. But implementation of carbon sequestration costs money and there are still unresolved environmental concerns, therefore, other approaches to mitigating net CO2 production and release are required. In an ideal model, emitted ...
