  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. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Promoting Responsible Drinking: An Internet-based, Interactive Computer Tailored Intervention

    SBC: Pro-Change Behavior Systems Inc            Topic: NIAAA

    DESCRIPTION provided by applicant Excessive alcohol use is associated with a range of serious and costly health social and economic consequences at the individual and societal level This program of research serves as a venue by which to produce and test an innovative science based and cost effective means to intervene in a private convenient and individualized way with employed adults wh ...

  6. Advanced Fluoropolymer Vessels for Ultra-Clean Ionization and Scintillation Detectors

    SBC: Applied Plastics Technology, Inc.            Topic: 08b

    75336S A broad category of experiments in astro-particle and high energy physics requires the construction of ultra-high-purity and ultra-low-radioactive-background, cubic-meter-scale vessels to be used as containers for ionization and scintillation media. Double-beta decay experiments, solar neutrino experiments, and dark matter searches would all benefit from this technology. Plastics are amo ...

  7. Hybrid Membrane Distillation Process for Enhanced Integrated Ethanol Production

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 19

    78204SThe conversion of corn and other biomass to fuel grade ethanol not only would reduce U.S. dependence on foreign energy sources but also would be a major industrial application for agricultural products. However, the process of drying the ethanol from a 95% ethanol-5% water mixture (the azeotrope) to fuel grade ethanol consumes significant amounts of energy, incurring costs that continue to ...

  8. Novel Platform for Hybrid Distillation of Inorganic Acids

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 30b

    78749S Distillation is a very valuable chemical engineering unit operation, but it is both energy and capital intensive. This is especially true when components either form azeotropes or have small relative volatility differences. A hybrid, robust membrane process could eliminate azeotropes and process pinch points. Therefore, this project will develop chemically and thermally stable high flux ...

  9. Hybrid Anti-Fouling Membrane System for Natural Gas Separation

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 19

    78243S Substantial amounts of natural gas reserves contain large amounts of non-methane gases, such as carbon monoxide and hydrogen sulfide, which make them uneconomical to market. While commercially available membranes offer the potential to remove these gases and produce pipeline grade natural gas, these membranes have limited separation capability or have failed due to unanticipated poisoning ...

  10. Fully Integrated Optical Micro Gyroscope

    SBC: Elsicon, Inc.            Topic: 18a

    76101-With the increased push toward system miniaturization and automation there exists a growing need for components that are small in size, reliable, robust, and cheap to manufacture. This is particularly true for systems used to detect the presence of weapons of mass destruction. Among those miniature components, high performance gyros are needed in real-time synthetic aperture radar systems ...
