  1. SOFC Protection Coatings Based on a Cost-Effective Aluminization Process

    SBC: Nextech Materials, Ltd.            Topic: 19b

    For solid oxide fuel cells the key barrier to technology commercialization is the high system cost, which is driven by materials selection. The use of steel components would be preferable but without protective coatings they are susceptible to oxidation and chromium volatilization in air and carburization and coking on the fuel side of the system. To enable the adoption of stainless steels low-cos ...

  2. A rapid and high-throughput microfluidic stem cell analyzer

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: OSD11H14

    Current methods to discern the differentiation state of stem cells are time-consuming, labor-intensive, costly, invasive, and consequently, ill-suited for clinical applications. To overcome these limitations, we propose to develop a microfluidic stem cell analyzer for accurate, non-invasive identification of the cell differentiation state in conjunction with automated cell sorting at high-throughp ...

  3. Designing a mini-pilot scale unit for extraction and electrospinning of chitin as an adsorbent for uranium from seawater

    SBC: 525 SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: 19g

    With the 4 billion tons of uranium estimated to be dissolved in the earth & apos;s oceans, an essentially unlimited resource is available to those with easy and affordable access. With decades of research towards the extraction of uranium from seawater, focus has been directed towards the selectivity of the adsorbent material, the cost of the material, and the ability of the adsorbent to be recycl ...

  4. GPU-Accelerated Multiphase Eulerian-Lagrangian Solver with Adaptive Mesh Refinement

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: 14c

    Computer simulations of multi-phase flows are important for many applications. In the proposed work, we plan to advance Eulerian-Lagrangian methods by using Adaptive Mesh Refinement for multi-scale resolutions, and CPU-GPU parallelization to drastically reduce computing time. Eulerian-Lagrangian methods treat the gas/liquid phase as a continuum (Eulerian) fluid, and solid particulates as discrete ...

  5. Diffusion Based Aluminide Coatings for High-Temperature Corrosion Protection of Stainless Steels

    SBC: Nextech Materials, Ltd.            Topic: 14a

    Since 2008, the United States has experienced a fundmental shift in energy resources and policies that are now changing the power generation industry. New Federal EPA regulations and State renewable energy portfolio standards have increased the pressure on coal-fired power plants to reduce pollutants and implement clean-coal technology, through ultra-supercritical (USC) and advanced ultra-supercr ...

  6. Real-Time 3-D Volume Imaging and Mass-Gauging of High Temperature Flows and Power System Components in a Fossil Fuel Reactor Using Electrical Capacitance Volume Tomography

    SBC: TECH4IMAGING LLC            Topic: 14d

    Controlling emissions and increasing efficiencies are essential requirements in future advanced power plants. Herein, next generation power systems require greater flexibility in their operations for meeting the higher efficiency and lower emissions conditions that are geared toward meeting consumer demand and adhering to increased regulatory standards, simultaneously. Those requirements can be me ...

  7. High Performance PrFeB Permanent Magnets Through Novel Pulse Alignment and Compaction Method for Cryogenic Permanent Magnet Undulators (CPMU)

    SBC: IAP RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: 11b

    There is a great demand for high energy advanced photons in many fundamental scientific disciplines and applications like undulators. Magnets based on PrFeB chemistry are most suitable for cryogenically operated undulators. Prior to our Phase I project, there were no development efforts for a United States manufacturing base for PrFeB magnets. The first objective is to process the best performi ...

  8. Micro-Hole Membrane for Solid-Liquid Separation of Micron-Scale Particulate

    SBC: Mound Laser & Photonics Center, Inc.            Topic: 18a

    There is great demand for low energy dewatering technologies to harvest very fine particulate, such as microalgae. Current dewatering methods (e.g. centrifuge, press filter) consume much energy and are less effective for separating high value micro-particulate. One promising method for very low energy dewatering is capillary solid-liquid separation; but its processing rate for the most valuable ...

  9. Complete Multipactor Suppression in Dielectric Loaded Accelerators Using a Solenoid Field

    SBC: EUCLID TECHLABS, LLC            Topic: 29a

    Multipactor discharges in dielectric accelerating structures are a major limitation on the performance of this otherwise very promising technology for future high energy physics machines and other applications. We will experimentally study a new approach, using an external solenoid field to completely suppress multipactor. This approach has been theoretically studied and verifi ...
