  1. 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 ...

  2. Flow Battery Structures to Improve Performance and Reduce Manufacturing Cost

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: 21d

    Redox flow batteries are a promising technology for electrical energy storage for renewable energy sources; however traditional redox flow batteries are limited in their use due to non-uniform pressure drops and mass transfer limitations, as well as high manufacturing costs related to the felt material costs for the electrode and component alignment challenges during manufacturing.General Statemen ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Improved Capillary Guided Laser Wakefield Accelerators based on Diamond Materials

    SBC: EUCLID TECHLABS, LLC            Topic: 03d

    The laser plasma accelerator (LPA) is a very promising technology for generating gamma rays for the detection of contraband bulk nuclear materials, but is currently limited by the rate at which the beam can be pulsed. Erosion of the capillary plasma channel is the main limiting factor and can be mitigated through the use of artificial diamond to construct the channel. Computational modeling and ...

  5. Programmable, Extensible and Secure System for Software-Defined Multi-Domain Performance Monitoring

    SBC: Samraksh Company, The            Topic: 01a

    Successful adoption of open frameworks such as perfSONAR in Science DMZs within DOE labs, universities, and small-businesses, and the emerging trends of software-defined cloud platforms that inherently require multi-domain performance transparency are major drivers for a new market. However, perfSONAR framework and other proprietary solutions developed by industry cannot be effectively integrated ...

  6. 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- ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. A Mesh Free Framework for Mechanical Simulations of Microstructure Data Files

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: 07a

    The Exascale Computing Project is tasked to develop the next generation of high performance computing systems capable of computing at 50 to 100 times faster than current HPC systems. Computing at this extreme-scale will significantly enhance the value of materials modeling and simulation to basic materials research and engineering In particular, computing at the extreme scale will enable a higher ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. A Multi-physics Analysis Capability for Engine Materials

    SBC: Sunergolab Inc.            Topic: 03b

    Computer-aided Engineering software that apply the Finite Element Method to perform a multi-physics analysis have received widespread acceptance for traditional macro-scale material systems. Challenges persist in the modeling of complex coupled processes in environmental/thermal barrier coatings (E/TBCs) used to protect substrate material against the corrosive environment in the hot section parts ...
