  1. Developing Commercial Quantum Resistance Standard Based on Epitaxial Graphene

    SBC: Graphene Waves, LLC            Topic: None

    Graphene Waves proposes to develop a quantum Hall resistance (QHR) standard based on graphene that can be deployed for general electrical calibration in industries. Current QHR standard is based on GaAs/AlGaAs heterostructure and requires expensive liquid helium to operate. The continuous increase in price and unstable supply chain of liquid helium limit the QHR standard to be only affordable by t ...

  4. Numerical Model Development For Supercritical CO2 Oxy-Combustion

    SBC: COMBUSTION SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: 22d

    Supercritical CO2 (sCO2) power cycles operate at high pressures (300 bar) and high inlet temperatures (700°C), placing the CO2 well above the critical point. Current plans are to operate these devices using natural gas or syngas, burning with oxygen at fairly low combustion temperatures (1100 °C). However, there are gaps in the understanding of oxy-fuel combustion with CO2 under supercritical co ...

  5. SAMPA: Security Analysis and Monitoring to Prevent Abuse of High Performance Computing Environments

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 04a

    HPC systems should not be used to carry out cybercrimes or execute improper jobs. Existing defense solutions such as fingerprint-based approaches require real-time data collection, which inevitably impacts the performance of HPC. Moreover, those solutions are ineffective against adversarial scenarios where malicious users intend to hide their behavior patterns. Hence, it is essential to build ligh ...

  6. Developing New “Non-stick” Nozzles with High Temperature Tolerance

    SBC: VRC Metal Systems, LLC            Topic: 13a

    The problem being addressed is that electrical generation capacity is expected to fall short in the near future for two reasons. One is that many coal-fired power plants are reaching the end of their life, and the other is that demand for electrical power is expected to increase steadily through year 2050. From emissions concerns, new coal-fired power plants are less likely to be built. While natu ...

  7. SOFTOX FOR STRANDED GAS UTILIZATION

    SBC: Modular Chemical, Inc.            Topic: 22a

    Many of today’s oil producers are forced to flare associated natural gas or shut-in wells because they cannot economically bring the gas to market. Natural gas flaring and venting exposes produc- ers to environmental liabilities, reduces potential revenues, and depreciates assets. Initially, this project will focus on a particularly acute problem for many producers—the co-production (with oil) ...

  8. High-Speed, NaNoscale Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry

    SBC: zeroK NanoTech Corporation            Topic: 24a

    Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (SIMS) is an important tool in the study of nanoscale composition of materials; however current instrumentation is slow, requiring long data acquisition times and providing limited resolution. The overall aim of this research proposal is the development of improved SIMS instruments, made possible by new ion source technology. SIMS has been used successfully to study ...

  9. A Self-Powered, Wireless Sensor System for Remote and Long-Term Monitoring of Internal Conditions of Spent Nuclear Fuel Dry-Storage Casks

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 33a

    A major concern with nuclear energy is the safe storage of the spent nuclear fuel before final disposal.A monitoring sensor located inside a storage cask to provide direct measurements of internal conditions is of particular interest to DOE.Conventional wireless sensors have inherent limitations because the stainless steel canister shields the RF signals from wireless sensors inside the canister t ...

  10. Smart GaN-Based Inverters for Grid-tied Energy Storage Systems

    SBC: InnoCit, LLC            Topic: 10b

    Battery storage systems provide distributed energy storage capabilities for smoothing the load profile and coping with power fluctuations.A challenge in the utilization of battery systems is the manufacturing of high efficiency battery inverters.Traditional Silicon-based inverters do not offer high efficiencies and suffer from larger real estate requirements.Recent commercialization of low-cost Ga ...
