  2. 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 ...

  3. Real-Time Size-Distributed Measurement of Aerosol Mass Concentration

    SBC: MSP CORPORATION            Topic: 03e

    MSP is introducing in this proposal a practical approach to a family of cascade impactors capable of real-time measurement of the size-distributed mass concentration of particles in the atmosphere. Further, because of the high sensitivity of the proposed mass transducers, these impactors will also provide nearly instantaneous information about the influence of water vapor on the size distribution ...

  4. Enhanced Quantum Efficiency of Photocathodes with Polarized Emission

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: 44e

    Photocathodes with spin-polarized electron emission are used in physics research. Current photocathodes offer high polarization, but low total currents, and have limited lifetime. Research involving these polarized electrons would be more productive if a higher electron current were provided. This program seeks to increase the delivered polarized electron current from the photocathodes by adding i ...

  5. Large Area GaN-Based Avalanche Photodiodes for Operation in Extreme Environments

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: 31e

    For several decades photomultiplier tubes (PMTs) have been the main technology for sensitive and low noise detection of photons in many high energy physics experiments. However, compared to solid-state photodetectors, PMTs are bulky, fragile, expensive, and need to be shielded from high magnetic fields and high pressures, which severely limit their application for future DOE projects. Hence, th ...

  6. GaAsSb/AlGaAs Superlattice High-Polarization Electron Source

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: 34e

    The negative-electron-affinity (NEA) photocathodes which produce polarized electrons are a vital component of electron accelerators such as that at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC). Future systems, such as the International Linear Collider (ILC), will require a polarized electron beam intensity at least 20 times greater than produced by strained GaAs, which is used in the current gene ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Quantitative In-Situ TEM Nanoindentation Instrument

    SBC: HYSITRON, INCORPORATED            Topic: 30b

    75333S Nanoindentation is the primary technique for assessing the nanomechanical behavior of small volumes of materials. With this technique, the force required to produce a given displacement into a sample by a sharp diamond tip is measured, and the hardness of the material being tested is determined analyzing the force-displacement curve. However, the microstructural origins of the measured me ...

  9. Nano Graphene Plate-Reinforced Polymer Composites

    SBC: Nanotek Instruments, Inc.            Topic: 20

    79671S Attempts to produce Carbon Nano Tube(CNT) in large quantities have been fraught with overwhelming challenges due to poor yield, costly fabrication, and the need for the purifying processes required to make them useful in applications. This project will develop an alternative nanoscale carbon material with comparable properties that can be produced cost-effectively and in larger quantities ...

  10. Highly Polarized Photocathodes Via Minimization of Spin Relaxation

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: 36c

    79431S Negative-electron-affinity (NEA) photocathodes, which produce polarized electrons, are a vital component of electron accelerators. The Next Linear Collider (NLC) will require a polarized electron beam intensity at least 20 times greater than that which can be produced with strained GaAs, which is used in the current generation of photocathodes. In addition, the degree of electron polariz ...
