  1. Thermoelectric Systems for High-Efficiency, Low-Cost Vehicle Waste Heat Recovery

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 06f

    An enormous amount of energy from burning hydrocarbon fuels is wasted as heat in vehicle exhaust gas. The goal of this project is to improve vehicle efficiency and reduce fuel consumption by converting some of this heat into electric power. We will develop a solid state thermoelectric generator (TEG) that can efficiently produce electric power from high-temperature exhaust heat. The approach is to ...

  2. Plug-In Hybrid Vehicle Optimization Using Vehicle-to-Cloud Connectivity

    SBC: Macchina, LLC            Topic: 13c

    Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) represent a growing segment of the U.S. passenger vehicle market. An increasing number of PHEV models are available to consumers. PHEVs are similar to parallel hybrid vehicles like the Toyota Prius in that they have an electric motor and internal combustion engine that are used synergistically to significantly reduce fuel consumption while maintaining a nea ...

  3. Nickel-Based Amorphous Metal Membranes for Water Gas Shift Reactors

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: 10c

    Hydrogen produced today from coal, natural gas, or biomass must be separated and purified outside the reactors using pressure swing absorption (PSA), a process that requires significant additional space and energy. Placing hydrogen-permeable membranes inside the reactors themselves would allow hydrogen to diffuse out, thereby reducing the cost of hydrogen production. In this Phase I effort, Mainst ...

  4. Multiscale Hydrogeologic-Biogeochemical Process Monitoring and Prediction Framework

    SBC: Subsurface Insights            Topic: 20a

    In the 21st century society will need to address and resolve a large number of subsurface challenges related to energy and environmental issues. These challenges include contaminant cleanup and long term site management at contaminated sites, long term storage of nuclear fuel, carbon cycling and sequestration, production of unconventional resources (oil shales and tight gas) and water resource man ...

  5. Low Cost, Scalable Manufacturing of Microlens Engineered Substrates (MLES) for Enhanced Light Extraction in OLED Devices

    SBC: Sinmat Inc            Topic: 09b

    Solid state lighting is being promoted as the ultimate lamps of future. Though the internal quantum efficiency of OLED devices is almost 100%, external efficiency is a mere 36% mainly because of poor light out-coupling (~40%) from the device. Improvement in light out-coupling to >70% and further reducing the manufacturing cost will rapidly accelerate the commercialization of the OLED technology. T ...

  6. High Surface Area-to-Volume Ultrathin Dense Membrane for Hydrogen Separation

    SBC: T3 SCIENTIFIC LLC            Topic: 10c

    Providing a reliable, clean and economical energy source is a priority of the US government. The challenge is to use coal, a secured and economical energy source, to produce clean hydrogen fuel to support domestic and global green economy with near-zero emission. Conventional separation technology and even developmental technology do not satisfy all of the requirements for hydrogen production from ...

  7. Dynamic virtual moulage based on thin film adhesive displays

    SBC: ARCHIE MD INC.            Topic: DHA17A002

    Providing Army combat medics with meaningful experience in treatment of battlefield injuries is a particular challenge. Moulage has the potential to assist in acquiring what could otherwise be very hard-to-come-by preparatory experience for distressing real-life emergencies medics and soldiers may encounter in the field. However, current approaches to moulage are limited in their ability to reflec ...

  8. Demonstration of the technological capability for production of neutron-focusing nickel mirrors

    SBC: ELECTROFORMED NICKEL, INC.            Topic: 15a

    Neutron scattering is one of the most useful methods of studying the structure and dynamics of matter. These methods require large installations at national laboratories, such as Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and other facilities constructed or planned in the US and around the world. These facilities serve a large and diverse community ...

  9. Defect Free, Ultra-Rapid Thinning/Polishing of Diamond Crystal Radiator Targets (20??m) for Highly Linearly Polarized Photon Beams

    SBC: Sinmat Inc            Topic: 46e

    The fabrication of high-quality ultra thin (~20 micron) diamond crystals targets for 9 GeV highly polarized photon beams is an outstanding challenge. Current state of the art polishing/thinning techniques are not successful in thinning single crystal diamond to such dimension because of its extreme hardness and chemical inertness. These techniques create significant stresses surface and sub-surfac ...

  10. Characterization of Piezoelectric Fibers for Sensing Shock Waves from Underwater Explosions

    SBC: ADVANCED MATERIALS AND DEVICES            Topic: DHA17C002

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I effort will demonstrate the feasibility of using piezoelectric fibers to detect shock waves from underwater explosions (UNDEX) and sensing physiological measures such as heart and respiratory rates on warfighters. Piezoelectric fibers will be characterized for their ability so sense different amplitudes and frequencies of shock and vibration. ...
