  2. Passivation Coatings for RF Power Devices

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 13d

    This project aims to increase the reliability of radio frequency (RF) devices used in accelerator facilities by reducing/eliminating corrosion and erosion produced from the high purity de-ionized water cooling systems. Although metal interconnects are required for electrical and thermal performance, they susceptible to two major failure mechanisms, corrosion and erosion. Currently RF lo ...

  3. Hybrid Solar Coal Gasifier

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 15d

    This Small Business Innovation Research project proposes to develop a first-of-its-kind hybrid solar-coal gasification technology. The current direct heating gasification technology has two shortcomings: (1) greenhouse gases, resulted from the coal combustion, diluting the syngas product, and leading to a low calorific value end product, and (2) thermal gradient, caused by the concentrated heat so ...

  4. Hi Charege Acceptance PbC Batteries for Low-Cost, High Efficiency Micro-Hybrid Vehicles: A Dual-Mode Architecture Approach

    SBC: Axion Power International, Inc.            Topic: 09b

    Axion Power intends to pursue the development and laboratory demonstration of a dual-mode micro- hybrid vehicle energy system architecture based on the combination of Axion Powers high charge acceptance PbC battery and a standard leadacid battery. This split-function approach, where the vehicles electronic load during stop-start events is discharged from the PbC battery and the engine crank load d ...

  5. Novel Membrane Systems for Olefin/Paraffin Separation

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 18a

    Ethylene and propylene are the primary feedstocks for the manufacture of polyethylene and polypropylene, respectively. These olefins represent a major component of the polymer manufacturing cost. Consequently, there is significant economic benefit in minimizing losses of unreacted olefin from the process. Some olefin loss is a result of the need to remove paraffin from the polymerization reactor ...

  6. Diamond Refractive Focusing Optics

    SBC: Delaware Diamond Knives, Inc            Topic: 16a

    Synchrotron-based science has had a great scientific impact and will continue to have great impact going forward. In spite of the large investment in the 3rd generation light sources, most beam lines do not preserve the sources phase profile or brightness all the way to the sample. For these high brightness light sources, errors are almost completely due to distortion in the front-end optics cau ...

  7. Production of Methacrylic Acid and Other Oxygenated Chemicals Solely from Renewable Non-food Biomass Derived Feedstocks

    SBC: Evernu Technology, Llc            Topic: 17a

    The over dependence of the United States on fossil fuels from foreign countries as the predominant source of energy and chemical feedstocks has placed the United State in an alarming position, impacted our national energy security and threaten the ecologic balance and the environment we live in. While the need for sustainable energy can also be met by utilizing other type of renewabl ...

  8. Solid Polymer Electrolytes with High Lithium Ion Conductivity and Transport Number for Hybrid Electric Power-train Systems

    SBC: HYBRID PLASTICS            Topic: 09b

    Current energy storage devices have energy densities that are barely sufficient for low cost electric-vehicles and rely on lithium ion batteries that use flammable, unsafe, liquid electrolytes. However, in order to replace liquid electrolyes in lithium batteries for hybrid electric power train systems, solid polymer electrolytes, which have the advantages of safety and flexibility, must attain con ...

  9. Using Coupled Eddy Current and Open-Circuit Voltage Technology to Improve PV Manufacturing Processes

    SBC: Lehighton Electronics, Inc.            Topic: 10d

    The objective of this work is to demonstrate a new Lehighton Electronics, Inc. (LEI) measurement technology that has high sensitivity to determine process deviations that may take place during the production of multicrystalline solar cells. The new technology measures a non-contact open-circuit voltage (OCV) response from the underlying device structure. Eddy current measurements in a solar cell c ...

  10. An Industrial Membrane System Suitable for Distributed Used Oil Re-Refining

    SBC: Media and Process Technology Inc.            Topic: 09c

    Nationwide about 2.4 billion gallons of lubricants are consumed annually for automotive crankcase (about 58%), industrial processes, machine lubrication, mining, and others. About 1 billion gallons/yr is currently collected as waste oil, equivalent to1-1.5% of annual US crude oil import volume. Presently, about 9% of the collected used oil is re-refined at six facilities in US. The majority of t ...
