  1. Thin Diamond for Time-of-Flight Detectors

    SBC: Applied Diamond, Inc.            Topic: 35b

    Detectors and radiation monitors for future high energy and nuclear physics experiments must be able to withstand radiation environments several orders of magnitude harsher than those of any current device. At present, most radiation detectors are based on silicon technology, however, the practical radiation hardness limit of silicon falls far short of requirements in future high ener ...

  2. Low-Cost Fiber Optic Network Reflectometer

    SBC: Ax Instruments LLC            Topic: 01c

    To support large scale Fiber Optic (FO) network deployment, there is an identified industry need for a low cost, optical network reflectometer with high resolution and much lower cost to be used in the maintenance of FO networks. This technology supports new FO networks that are being installed in neighborhoods, office buildings, fibertothehome, local area networks, small office/home office (SOHO ...

  3. Low Cost Silicon Carbide Fibers, Tapes, and Architecture for Accident Tolerant Nuclear Fuel Cladding and Components

    SBC: Ceramic Tubular Products            Topic: 21b

    Since the Fukushima accident, the DOE, nuclear fuel suppliers, and EPRI, have begun to focus R & amp;D efforts on advanced LWR fuel and components that are more accident tolerant than current zirconium alloys. One area of interest are fuels and components fabricated from ceramic composites that do not balloon during LOCA accidents, do not react exothermically with water during post LOCA quench, an ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. X-Band Bunched Electron Injector

    SBC: Fm Technologies Inc            Topic: 66e

    The development of high-current, short-duration pulses of electrons has been a challenging problem for many years. High current pulses are widely used in injector systems for electron accelerators, both for industrial linacs as well as high-energy accelerators for linear colliders. Short-duration pulses are also used for microwave generation in klystrons and related devices, for injectors to perfo ...

  7. High-yield Production of Fumarate from Cellulosic Biomass by Recombinant Cellulolytic Bacillus subtilis

    SBC: Gate Fuels Incorporated            Topic: 17a

    This project will provide a low-cost route for high-yield fumarate production from pretreated non-food cellulosic biomass mediated by recombinant cellulolytic Bacillus subtilis. The cellulose fraction of biomass feedstock contains more than one half oxygen by weight, making it a good starting material for the production of oxygen-containing polymeric monomers. Fumaric acid or fumarate, among the D ...

  8. 15 kV Phase Leg Modules with SiC Monolithically Integrated JBS Rectifier with Super Junction Transistor (MIDSJT) Devices

    SBC: GENESIC SEMICONDUCTOR INC.            Topic: 08b

    This project will create a new category of advanced power modules for use in power electronics for energy storage in the medium-voltage range and & gt; 100 kW ratings. A design showing a significant increase in circuit efficiency, cost reduction, an increase in power density, and a reduction in thermal management requirements over the existing Silicon power modules will eliminate significant waste ...

  9. HPC Auto-Assistant: Making HPC Software and Tools Easier to Use for the Experienced (Not Expert) User

    SBC: Harmonia Holdings Group, LLC            Topic: 02b

    Our proposal will make high performance computing (HPC) software easier to install, configure, stage data for, and run. This will reduce the need to invest a substantial amount in learning these tools and services and the insurmountable barrier for many organizations, as requested in Topic 2b. Our solution is an intelligent system called HPC Auto-Assistant (HAA). HAA enables the automated creati ...

  10. 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 ...
