  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. High Power S-Band Vacuum Load

    SBC: MUONS INC            Topic: 10d

    S-Band vacuum loads at the SLAC linac are encountering operational problems, now that they have to operate under the stringent requirements of the LCLS: 50 MW peak power, 6 kW average power, and extremely-tight phase stability for the linac. Failure mechanisms have been studied which suggest an RF surface breakdown of the 200 um Kanthal layer. We propose a novel solution which incorporates mode co ...

  6. Ribbon Electron Beam Profile Monitor for Bunched Beam Tomography

    SBC: MUONS INC            Topic: 34g

    Advanced beam diagnostics are essential for high performance accelerator beam production and for reliable accelerator operation. It is important to have noninvasive diagnostics which can be used continuously with intense beams of accelerated particles. Recently, an electron probe was tested to determine accelerated particle density distributions. However, the prototype apparatus used for this diag ...

  7. Low Cost Spray-On Coatings for Protection of SOFC Interconnects and BOP Components

    SBC: Engi-Mat Co.            Topic: 19b

    Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFCs) present one of the most promising choices for the future of distributed power generation as they produce energy from a wide variety of fuels with high efficiencies (45-65 %) and low pollution; however, this technology is cost prohibitive and not widely used. The use of ferritic steels in SOFCs can decrease cost, but degradation of these materials due to elevated temp ...

  8. Nanowires for CO2 Reforming into Fuels by Sunlight

    SBC: PHOSPHORTECH            Topic: 19a

    In this phase I SBIR project, we propose to develop a new type of photo-catalyst nanowire structure for high yield CO2 reforming into fuels and useful chemicals by sunlight energy. Despite the published successes of TiO2 nanorods/nanotubes as photo-catalyst materials, such systems work primarily in the ultraviolet spectral region ( & lt;390 nm) and suffer from poor visible light absorption. The p ...

  9. Computational Design of Weldable High-Cr Ferritic Steel

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: 22c

    The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is actively funding research to significantly enhance the thermal efficiency of coal-fired steam boilers for power generation through the use of advanced ultra-supercritical (A-USC) steam temperatures and pressures. Since coal fired power plants are the dominant source of domestic power generation, the accelerated design, development and commercialization of eff ...

  10. Computational Materials Design of Tungsten Alloys with Improved Fracture Toughness and a Lowered Ductile to Brittle Transition Temperature (DBTT)

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: 22d

    The development of a reliable and safe fusion energy source will require advances in a number of technological areas, including high temperature materials with good mechanical properties that are also resistant to radiation embrittlement. Because tungsten has the highest melting point (3410C) and lowest vapor pressure (1.3x10-7 Pa at TMelt) of all metals, tungsten and its alloys are attractive ca ...
