  1. A Microfluidic Ice Nucleating Particle Counter for Continuous Measurements from Small Aerial Platforms

    SBC: Handix Scientific LLC            Topic: 23a

    Quantifying atmospheric aerosol, clouds and precipitation processes are critical needs for understanding and interpreting Earth’s changing energy budget, is a DOE objective, and is of broader benefit to the public. Specifically, the formation of ice in the atmosphere depends on the nature and abundance of ice nucleating particles, and has major implications for precipitation and cloud interactio ...

  2. Coal-Core Composites for Low Cost, Light Weight, Fire-Resistant Panels and Roofing Materials

    SBC: Semplastics EHC LLC            Topic: 18c

    Two main problems are targeted by the proposed work: (1) the underutilization of coal, a valuable natural resource, has led to a catastrophic drop in employment within the coal industry ecosystem in specific geographic areas in the country; and (2) the need within the insurance-driven roof replacement market for a suitable, light weight, low cost, high durability roofing material.These problems wi ...

  5. High-Speed, NaNoscale Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry

    SBC: zeroK NanoTech Corporation            Topic: 24a

    Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (SIMS) is an important tool in the study of nanoscale composition of materials; however current instrumentation is slow, requiring long data acquisition times and providing limited resolution. The overall aim of this research proposal is the development of improved SIMS instruments, made possible by new ion source technology. SIMS has been used successfully to study ...

  6. Development of a Profiling Microwave Radiometer for Offshore Wind Farms, Further Characterization of Marine Atmospheric Boundary Layer

    SBC: Boulder Environmental Sciences And Technology, LLC            Topic: 16a

    The life expectancy of offshore wind turbines is at least 20 years, during which they must operate optimally with respect to power production, minimization of mechanical stresses, plant wake distribution, and more, in a range of atmospheric conditions.These conditions are currently observed using meteorological masts, which provide inadequate observations, thus resulting in suboptimal turbine desi ...

  7. Low-cost, Time-resolved Chemical Characterization of Atmospheric Aerosols

    SBC: Aerosol Devices Inc.            Topic: 23b

    The composition of atmospheric particulate matter (“aerosols”) strongly influences health and environmental impacts, but there exist few time-resolved, long-term records of particle-phase chemical composition due to lack of appropriate monitoring tools. Needed is an instrument that is robust, easy-to-operate, with automated calibrations and data reduction, to provide operationally-inexpensive ...

  8. Stable, Low-Loss Joints for HTS Fusion Magnets

    SBC: Advanced Conductor Technologies LLC            Topic: 22c

    The feasibility of fusion as a practical energy source needs to be improved significantly by removing some of the restrictions that low-temperature superconductors put on the fusion magnet systems.One method to simplify the magnet system is by using high-temperature superconductors (HTS) that allow for a higher magnet performance and much larger temperature margins.Successful application of HTS in ...

  9. A Self-Powered, Wireless Sensor System for Remote and Long-Term Monitoring of Internal Conditions of Spent Nuclear Fuel Dry-Storage Casks

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 33a

    A major concern with nuclear energy is the safe storage of the spent nuclear fuel before final disposal.A monitoring sensor located inside a storage cask to provide direct measurements of internal conditions is of particular interest to DOE.Conventional wireless sensors have inherent limitations because the stainless steel canister shields the RF signals from wireless sensors inside the canister t ...

  10. High Temperature Operable, Harsh Environment Tolerant Flow Sensors for Nuclear Reactor Applications

    SBC: SPORIAN MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: 32k

    A commonly noted sensor need for nuclear power systems is flow sensing in the various heat transfer mediums and to monitor medium velocities and characterize mixing and/or cooling.This is particularly needed for small modular reactors (SMR) and molten salt reactors (MSR).Such sensors must be able to tolerate high temperatures, high pressures, highly corrosive liquids, and radiation (neutron and ga ...
