  1. 1200 V/50 A AlGaN-GaN-Si MOS-HFETs and Schottky Rectifiers

    SBC: GENESIC SEMICONDUCTOR INC.            Topic: 11c

    DoEs recent emphasis on increasing fuel economy requires electrification of the vehicle powertrain, thus leading to extended range electric vehicles (EREVs), hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), battery electric vehicles (BEV) and fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV). All electric propulsion systems require high current, high-voltage (600 V-1200 V), low-loss power semiconductor switches. Present electri ...

  2. Ultra Low-Power and Embeddable Blade-Condition Monitor

    SBC: Extreme Diagnostics, Inc.            Topic: 07c

    This SBIR/STTR project delivers an ultra-low power structural health monitoring (SHM) system that uses autonomous, wirelessly embedded sensors to monitor and assess structural integrity in wind turbine blades. EASE features impedance-based active SHM, which is highly sensitive to damage like cracks, delimitations, mass variations, fastener failures and stiffness changes. Blades are the only wind t ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Segmented and Blocky Proton Conducting Membranes for Solar Fuels Generator Applications

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: 19b

    The Department of Energy’s Office of Basic Energy Sciences has identified a need for new proton conducting membranes for solar fuel generator applications. Specifically, development of block copolymers with good proton conductivity at ambient temperatures and low gas diffusion and ionic transports are needed. There are currently no commercially available proton conducting membranes which possess ...

  5. Segmented and Blocky Hydrocarbon Ion Pair Membranes for Fuel Cells

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: 10a

    The DOE has identified a need for thin and durable proton conducting membranes that offer enhanced energy efficiency to power zero emission vehicles. Specifically, a cost effective hydrocarbon-based alternative to expensive commercial perfluorosulfonic acid ionomers are sought. Current hydrocarbon membranes do not meet the performance or durability needed in the conditions for transportation fuel ...

  6. Scaleup of a Combined Spray Pyrolysis and Fluidized-bed Reactor Method for the Production of High Performing Layered Nickel- rich Cathode Materials as a Continuous Process

    SBC: HAZEN RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: 14a

    To increase the utilization of electric vehicles, the US Department of Energy is seeking to reduce the cost of electric vehicle batteries to less than $125/kWh by 2022. To achieve this goal, the costs of cathode materials, which account for approximately 30% of the cost of vehicle batteries, must be reduced significantly. To address the challenge of lowering the costs of advanced lithium battery c ...

  7. Scalable Framework for Integrating Multi-Omics Data for Biosystem Analysis

    SBC: Omics Data Automation, Inc.            Topic: 01a

    Understanding the genomic basis of economically important plants for growth time, crop yield, responses to drought and disease resistance is of critical importance to sustaining and improving food supplies for humans and livestock, as well as insuring sufficient raw material availability for industries that depend on plant materials, such as biofuel manufacture. Current computational methods for a ...

  8. Recovery Act- Scale-up of the Nanomanufacturing of Coated Powders for Superior Battery Electrode Materials

    SBC: ALD NANOSOLUTIONS, INC            Topic: 09b

    There is significant opportunity for energy efficiency improvements in the industrial and manufacturing sectors in the U.S., both from the production and consumption perspective. Higher energy density battery materials will play a role in both, through improved storage of electricity from renewable sources, the enabling of electric vehicles, and through the development of longer lasting, higher po ...

  9. Recovery Act- Development of a Fiber Based Source of High Average Power Ultrafast Pulses at 2.0 Microns

    SBC: Kapteyn-Murnane Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: 04d

    Bright coherent light sources in the soft x-ray region of the spectrum are useful for a variety of applications of interest to DOE in the basic sciences, nanoscience and biology, and for technological applications. At Free-Electron Laser Facilities, peak power output of the x-ray pulses is enhanced by using a mid-infrared laser pulse instead of a near-infrared pulse. The current front end for mid- ...

  10. REBCO Coated Conductor Cables for Fusion Magnets

    SBC: Advanced Conductor Technologies LLC            Topic: 22c

    The feasibility for fusion as a practical energy source needs to be enhanced significantly by removing some of the restrictions that low-temperature superconductors put on the fusion magnet systems. This can be done by using high-temperature superconductors, allowing for much larger temperature margins, a higher magnet performance and less mechanical degradation during operation. There are curren ...
