  1. 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 ...

  2. Highly Efficient Smart Tanks for Hydrogen Storage

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 10a

    The commercial success of the Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles will require significant reductions in the cost of hydrogen fueling.Current fueling stations require pre-cooling equipment that chills the hydrogen to -40°C; this is needed to offset the temperature rise caused by compression during fueling and keep the polymer liner of the vehicle’s tank below its maximum operating temperature of 85?C.I ...

  3. PCF Based High Reliability Arbitrary Pulse Pattern Laser Amplifier

    SBC: OPTICAL ENGINES, INC            Topic: 25d

    A very diverse set of applications from lasers for accelerator applications to defense, to industrial to scientific and biomedical applications need to achieve pulsed laser beams that have both high energy per pulse and high average power.In current lasers systems only one or the other is achievable.As with networking equipment, the search is on for a “Software Defined Laser”, where a nearly a ...

  4. VnV: A Self Documenting Testing Framework for In-situ Verification and Validation in High Performance Computing Applications

    SBC: RNET TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 30d

    Verification and Validation (V&V) of numerical simulations is a discrete process that cannot realistically account for every possibility.This causes issues in general purpose simulation packages because, while it is the responsibility of the developers to ensure the product is mathematically correct, it is the responsibility of the end-user to ensure the solution is a suitable representation of th ...

  5. Electro-dewatering of Cellulosic Nanomaterials

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: 06b

    Cellulosic nanomaterials exhibit great potential in various applications due to unique properties.Abundant availability of feedstock has led to the industrialization of manufacturing processes to produce them.A significant cost-limiting factor to utilize cellulosic nanomaterials is dewatering or drying of nanocellulosic suspension.Technologies are needed to enable solid-liquid separation associate ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Ultra-High Gradient Travelling-Wave Gun

    SBC: EUCLID TECHLABS, LLC            Topic: 23b

    High brightness beams enable novel applications like x-ray free electron lasers and ultrafast electron microscopes.High brightness beams essentially consist of a large number of electrons in a small phase space volume, i.e.a high peak current.When such beams are generated from the cathode, there is a strong space charge force, which elongates the bunch and reduces its brightness.An optimal solutio ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. A New Sorbent Process for Transformational Carbon Capture Process

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 18d

    The electricity produced from fossil fuels is essential to the world’s prosperity and security, but the increasing atmospheric CO2 concentrations caused by the fossil fuel combustion are implicated in global warming.Although there are several methods for separating CO2 from the flue gases, all have significant drawbacks, including loss of efficiency and increased capital and operating costs that ...

  10. Radiation Tolerant, Thermally Conductive Resin Systems for High Energy Physics Magnets

    SBC: COMPOSITE TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT, INC.            Topic: 26d

    Superconducting magnets are critical components in particle accelerators and are used to generate and sustain the large magnetic fields needed for DOE’s High Energy Physics programs.Superconducting magnets are also commonly used in medical imaging, spectroscopy, and fusion energy applications.Current state-of-the-art Nb3Sn magnets suffer from long training cycles before stable magnet performance ...
