  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. Fast-Scanning Nanoindenter

    SBC: HYSITRON, INCORPORATED            Topic: 05b

    For the inspection of surface topography, nanomechanical characterization can provide crucial information concerning the performance of a material. The nanoindenter, especially the scanning nanoindenter, is a powerful tool for nanomechanical characterization. Although the majority of commercial nanoindenters provide high force and displacement sensitivity, their low bandwidth has hindered their ...

  8. Scanning Probe Microscopy


    The DOE¿s interest in the fundamental research and development of advanced materials, devices, and structures necessitates associated research into advanced characterization metrology. Such characterization needs are particularly evident in regimes operating at nanometer scales. This project is concerned with one aspect of this very broad metrology field: the measurement of high frequency magn ...

  9. A Novel System for the Sequestration and Conversion of Carbon Dioxide to useful Products using Stable Metal Oxide Catalysts

    SBC: SARTEC CORPORATION            Topic: 07a

    The combustion of fossil fuels is believed to have caused a rapid increase in the amount of carbon dioxide present in the atmosphere. Carbon dioxide is considered a key ¿greenhouse¿ gas and its accumulation in the atmosphere is believed to be a primary cause of the global energy imbalance that is driving climate change. This project will develop a method for capturing and converting carbon ...

  10. Advanced Coating Technology for Enhanced Performance of Microchannel Plates for High-efficiency UV and Cherenkov Light Detection

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: 49a

    Nuclear physics research has a need to develop inexpensive, position-sensitive, large-sized photon detection devices for Cherenkov counters. A UV photon detector is an essential part of Cherenkov counters. Currently, microchannel plate (MCP) detectors are used extensively in UV instruments. MCPs have many advantages over the conventional photomultiplier tube (PMT) currently used in Cherenkov det ...
