  1. 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 ...

  2. A microfluidic ice nucleating particle counter for continuous measurements from small aerial platforms

    SBC: Handix Scientific Inc.            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 ...

  3. Low-cost, time-resolved chemical characterization of atmospheric aerosols

    SBC: Aerosol Devices Inc.            Topic: 23b

    Currently the chemical composition of atmospheric particulate matter is measured either by off-line analyses of time-integrated filter samples, or by in-situ instruments requiring near-constant operator oversight. These measurement approaches result in sparse or limited data coverage. Despite the critical role of composition on the health and environmental impacts of particulate matter, there exis ...

  4. Infectious Disease Diagnostics and Differentiation of Viral vs. Bacterial Infections for Point of Care Applications

    SBC: GeneCapture, Inc.            Topic: CBD15C001

    The modern warfighter faces the constant threat of endemic infections, multi-drug resistant bacteria and Biological Warfare Agents. In order to provide accurate front-line treatment that will curtail the overuse of antibiotics, a rapid and robust molecula

  5. 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 ...

  6. Synthesis of a Potential Fast Ionic Conductor for Mg+ Ions

    SBC: Powdermet, Inc.            Topic: 15b

    Development of a solid with high conductivity of Mg2+ cations will allow application of that substance as membrane in magnesium-air batteries. These batteries will be much cheaper, safer, and at the same time store much more energy than lead-, lithium- or sodium batteries with the same weight. Such batteries would be ideal for electric vehicles and for the off-peak storage of renewable elect ...

  7. Carbon Nanotube-based Solar Water Heater

    SBC: SOLARNO, INC            Topic: 03e

    Solar water heaters are a well-established renewable energy technology that has been widely adopted outside of the United States. Here we propose to significantly improve the evacuated solar tube collectors (ETC) by utilizing the dry-drawable carbon nanotube (CNT) sheets for solar energy absorption and CNT multifunctional nanocomposites with functional layers of heat accumulators and heat transpo ...

  8. Low-cost and Flexible Transparent Electrodes Based on Ag–ZTOF (Zn–Sn–O–F) Amorphous Composites Through Ink-jet Printing

    SBC: HAZEN RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: 09b

    Sn-doped In2O3 (ITO) is the industry standard and most widely used transparent conducting electrode (TCE) because of its good electrical and optical properties. However, ITO has a number of disadvantages: ITO is not a suitable TCE for next-generation, high-efficiency, flexible OLEDs, because of its inappropriate work function, difficulty in creating desired patterns, low stability, delaminantion d ...

  9. Bio-mathematical Models of Aggregated Tissues & Organ Properties

    SBC: Corvid Innovation LLC            Topic: DHP16A001

    Realistic surgical simulation requires a combination of representative tissue geometry, accurate tissue material properties and lifelike tool-tissue interaction forces. Recent advances in computational power and imaging modalities have provided the capability to represent the anatomical details required for surgical training; however, the mathematical models which govern the underlying tissue pro ...

  10. Low-Cost, High-Accuracy, Whole-Building Carbon Dioxide Monitoring for Demand Control Ventilation

    SBC: DIOXIDE MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: 11

    The objective of the proposed work is to develop, demonstrate, and evaluate new technologies for low-cost, high-accuracy, whole-building CO2 monitoring for demand control ventilation. The work builds on a private/public partnership formed between Dioxide MaterialsTM and the Institute for Sensing and Embedded Network Systems Engineering (I-SENSE) at Florida Atlantic University. In previous, NSF-sup ...
