  1. Anion Exchange Resin for Chirality-based Separation of Single-wall Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: Sepax Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Sepax Technologies, Inc. has identified a new type of anoin-exchange resin which separates single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) with >80% recovery yield and resolves in a single pass the chiral tubes of (6,5) well from commercial SWCNT starting materials by Chromatography. Improvement and scale up of the targeted resin production will facilitate the separation of chiral nanotubes for the academic ...

  2. High Energy Sub-100 Femtosecond Fiber Lasers at 2 Micron

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: 15d

    There is an urgent need to develop a new high-energy 2m ultrafast fiber laser system in order to achieve the optimized efficiency of the ESASE process, which is beneficial in areas ranging from atomic and molecular sciences to chemical, materials, and biological studies. To reach the mid-IR wavelengths for ESASE application, the traditional way is to shift the wavelengths of these commercially ava ...

  3. Development of a Field Emitter Array Based High-Current Electron Injector

    SBC: Advanced Energy Systems, Inc            Topic: 11c

    At present there exists a very significant science and technology gap for the production of photocathodes that have both high quantum efficiency (QE) and long lifetime. The National Academies has identified this as an area of critical importance to the development of high-power free-electron lasers (FEL). If the high-current electron injectors required are based on low-QE cathodes, then the requ ...

  4. Accelerator Design that can Provide Very High Gradient with Acceleration Structures Fabricated with Integrated Circuit Technology

    SBC: American Undulator As Alexander Mikhailichenko            Topic: 28a

    The far-term goal of this research is in development and design of accelerator able to provide & gt;1 GeV/m for electrons. This goal will be reached by usage of Si micro-structure made with Lithographic technology common in micro-circuit fabrication. To avoid heat damage of micro-structure, the laser focus swept along the accelerator micro- structure by a special electro-optical devic ...

  5. Using ARB Biotech for H2 Generation and Efficient Commercial Wastewater Treatment

    SBC: Arbsource, LLC            Topic: 09e

    Food and beverage companies, for example breweries or confectioners, are burdened with huge costs managing wastewater totaling millions of dollars per year in operations for typical facilities. This cost is attributed to the continuous use of decades-old, high-maintenance treatment technologies commonly called activated sludge technology. This treatment strategy requires massive energy expenditure ...

  6. A Novel Composite Membrane for High Temperature Hydrogen Separation

    SBC: BETTERGY CORP.            Topic: 09a

    Increased use of hydrogen as a fuel can provide benefits to our nations energy security, the environment and economic growth. Toward hydrogen economy, an innovation in hydrogen separation technology is needed in the production of hydrogen. Current separation technologies for industrial hydrogen production mainly include pressure swing adsorption process and the cryogenic separation process, which ...

  7. Clean Fan Stove Combustion Technology Development

    SBC: Biolite            Topic: 10a

    The core objective will be to demonstrate the feasibility of creating an affordable, long-lasting clean cook stove solution that delivers at least 90% emissions reduction and 50% lower fuel usage than traditional biomass stoves. Over the period 2009-2011, BioLite developed an innovative, low cost technology that uses a thermoelectric generator in combination with a fan and a unique combustion syst ...

  8. Tools for Auto-Calibration of Building Energy Models and Predictive Control

    SBC: Buildlab, LLC            Topic: 02b

    With rising energy costs and finite supply, Energy Conservation Measures (ECMs) are becoming increasingly important in the United States, particularly in regard to buildings, which account for 40% of the total energy used in America. Currently, energy use in buildings can be assessed through energy-modeling software during the design process or during post-occupancy once the building is commissio ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
