  1. Micro-aligned 1 Tesla solenoid for high-energy bunched-beam electron cooling

    SBC: Accelerator Technology Corporation            Topic: 29d

    The JLab Electron-Ion Collider (JLEIC) is proposed to collider spin-polarized beams of electrons and ions at high energy and high luminosity- Sustaining high luminosity requires the use of bunched-beam electron cooling to control emittance growth in the circulating ion beam- The electron cooling requires that a bunched electron beam be coalesced with the ion bunches so that they travel with the sa ...

  2. rtmApp: A SaaS Application for Multiscale Reactive Transport Modeling

    SBC: AQUANRG CONSULTING INC.            Topic: 15a

    Current computational predictive tools are not benefited from state-of-the-art algorithms and hardware to simulate complex physical-chemical processes which occur in various material and energy systems- These simulation software: 1) simplify complex geometries, 2) model either physical or chemical processes, 3) are incapable of capturing physical and chemical properties which span vast length scal ...

  4. Miniature Recoil Ion Mass Spectrometer enables correlative elemental isotopic and backscatter analysis from solid nanovolumes

    SBC: Ionwerks, Inc.            Topic: 24b

    Mass spectrometric measurement of elemental isotopic ratios from solids has been mostly obtained by secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS) which has a sensitivity for almost all elements superior to Xray fluorescence and laser desorption ICPMS- In SIMS elemental and molecular ions are liberated from the near surface of a solid by energetic micron or submicron focused ion beams and extracted with a ...

  6. High Performance Computing for Rapid Design and Optimization of Roll-to-Roll Etch Processes

    SBC: Sandbox Semiconductor Incorporated            Topic: 03a

    Despite its potential to lower costs and increase throughput, roll-to-roll nanomanufacturing has yet to become widely used by the private sector due to a lack of industry standardization and the dearth of available data on roll-to-roll process limits- To address this knowledge gap and increase roll-to-roll adoption, a high-performance computing simulation tool will be developed- This tool will pro ...

  8. High-Speed Platform for Highly parallel STM lithography and hierarchical Assembly

    SBC: Zyvex Labs LLC            Topic: 17e

    Nanotechnology has yet to live up to its promise of exploiting properties which emerge at the nanoscale because of the lack of manufacturing precision to control the nanoscale dimensions, thus denying society many energy saving materials and applications. This project targets a key component of an Atomically Precise Manufacturing system: a high-speed sub-nm-precision manufacturing platform for ato ...

  9. Permanent Magnet (PM) Induction Heater for Paraffin Abatement

    SBC: AUSTIN GEOTECH SERVICES INC            Topic: 20b

    One of the major maintenance headaches causing increased operational cost in the production of mature oil wells is the elimination of wax and paraffin buildup in the production tubing. The accumulation over time of paraffin compounds in "cold spots" in the tubing creates high pressures and flow constrictions that contribute to accelerated pump wear, and constrict the flow of fluids to the surface. ...

  10. A multi-GS/s, radiation tolerant analog-to-digital converter to improve timing resolution and accuracy of pixelated detectors

    SBC: TallannQuest LLC            Topic: 28b

    Cost-effective and power-efficient radiation tolerant semiconductors are needed in various harsh environments, such as particle detectors, communication satellites, high-altitude avionics and medical imagining equipment. These include amplifiers, voltage regulators, analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) and digital logic circuitry. However, radiation-tolerant high-speed ADCs currently cost more than ...
