  1. Realization of Mulitlayer High Temperature Capacitors with New Dielectric Materials and Novel Thermal Spray Deposition Route

    SBC: DRS Research            Topic: 01a

    The main focus of this STTR is to design, develop, and evaluate high temperature capacitors using novel thermal spray coating processes, which will allow the devices to meet the performance requirements. Multilayer coating architecture will be adopted and the electrodes and dielectric material selections will be screened in Phase I to note material compatibility and high temperature performance. ...

  2. Novel Module Architecture Development for Increased Reliability and Reduced Costs

    SBC: Creative Light Source, Inc            Topic: 07a

    Statement of Problem: The US DOE has set a goal to advance photovoltaics (PV) technology to reach installed costs of less than $1/Watt. This requires module costs below $0.50/ Watt. Thin film PV provides the lowest documented production cost per watt ($0.67) of any PV technology. Module reliability has a direct impact on the levalized cost of energy (LCOE), or the cost of the energy produced by ...

  3. Practical Fiber Delivered Laser Ignition Systems for Vehicles

    SBC: Seaforth LLC            Topic: 08b

    Improved ignition methods are needed for advanced vehicle combustion systems, in particular those that allow reliable ignition of lean mixtures in gasoline engines at elevated pressures. Laser ignition is a candidate technology having the potential to address these needs. However, despite more than 40 years of laser ignition research, the technology is not yet in commercial use. A critical proble ...

  4. Superconducting Wollaston Prism for Spin Echo Scattering Angle Measurement

    SBC: ADELPHI TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: 09b

    Small Angle Neutron Scattering (SANS) has been an extremely productive materials science probe for several decades and is used extensively by researchers studying a wide range of subjects, including polymers, ceramics, metals and biological macromolecules and functions. However, it is limited to length scales from 1 to 100 nm and requires highly collimated and relatively monochromatic neutron beam ...

  5. Efficient, high resolution, position sensitive liquid argon detectors

    SBC: ADELPHI TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: 42a

    This project will develop position-sensitive liquid argon detectors for a range of nuclear physics experiments. A particular need is for large area detectors with good energy, spatial and time resolution. Originally developed for calorimetry and the detection of neutrinos, weakly interacting massive particles and neutrinoless double beta decay, liquefied noble gas (LNG) detectors have ...

  6. Robust RF Photocathodes

    SBC: Calabazas Creek Research, Inc.            Topic: 33e

    Photocathodes are one of the most critical components in RF-based linacs and light source systems. Current photocathodes lack the capability to meet the long term requirements for medical, defense, industrial and many scientific systems. This program will develop a new generation of photocathodes that provide high performance and long life. Calabazas Creek Research Inc. (CCR), in collaboration wi ...

  7. Nano-Patterned Cathode Surfaces for High Efficiency Photoinjectors

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: 05a

    Present day photoinjector cathodes have a poor lifetime or inadequate quantum efficiency for advanced applications. In addition, the efficiency is constrained by the frequency up- conversion in the drive laser from infrared to ultraviolet photons. Novel nanofabrication techniques allow for the sub-wavelength patterning of grooves and hole-array surfaces on the cathode. Exploiting the surface plas ...

  8. EAMR: Enhanced Minirhizotron and Image Analysis System

    SBC: Rhizosystems, Llc            Topic: 18c

    The single most critical value in any terrestrial carbon (C) sequestration budget is the net primary production. The biggest unknown in determining C sequestration is the allocation, production, respiration, mortality and decomposition of soil organisms. We developed and are refining a new observation/sensor platform, the enhanced automated minirhizotron (EAMR) which, when coupled to a soil sensor ...

  9. Cavity Enhanced Thomson Scattering System for Low Temperature Plasmas

    SBC: Seaforth LLC            Topic: 30a

    Electrons play a very key role in plasma chemistry and dynamics of low temperature plasmas. Improved capability for measuring electron number density, ne, and electron energy distribution function, EEDF, in weakly ionized low temperature plasmas would benefit both fundamental study and application areas. For example, the capability would directly benefit emerging research targeted at modifying and ...

  10. Development of Ceramic Scintillators for High Speed, Ultra-High Resolution X-Ray Imaging Detectors

    SBC: Xradia            Topic: 03a

    X-Ray microscopy offers rich internal information of objects under study due to the highly penetrative nature of x-rays. Significant improvements in laboratory x-ray sources, synchrotrons and detector technologies in the past few years have pushed the frontiers of spatial and time resolution enabling time-lapse imaging of structures in the micron scale. Xradia, a US based small business founded in ...
