  3. Windable Lithium-ion Conducting Ceramic Electrolytes

    SBC: Chemat Technology, Inc.            Topic: A09AT011

    Lithium-air battery consists of a lithium anode electrochemically coupled to atmospheric oxygen through an air cathode. The major advantages of lithium air batteries are that air cathode active material, oxygen, is not stored internal to cell system and lithium anode being extremely lightweight metal with a highest theoretical specific energy density. This energy density is well comparable with t ...

  4. Broadband agile wavelength laser for chemical aerosol detection

    SBC: DBC Technology Corp.            Topic: A09AT020

    Chemical agents in aerosol form have been identified as a major threat, and there is now interest in applying the long wave infrared frequency agile laser sensor to detection of this important agent form. If successful, it would be possible to perform detection of chemical agent vapors and aerosols and biological aerosol agents with a single dual-use sensor. To accomplish this, it is critical to ...

  5. Broadband agile wavelength laser for chemical aerosol detection

    SBC: DBC Technology Corp.            Topic: ARMY09T020

    The Phase I effort was successful in experimentally showing feasibility of a combined isotope transmitter that can be developed and demonstrated under the Phase II program. The initial experimental results give the window of gas mixtures for a stable discharge. Laser extraction tests were accomplished with C12/C13 mixtures to give guidance for further work to increase laser gain. For application ...

  7. Identifying compounds that increase mitochondrial performance

    SBC: Eon Corp.            Topic: ARMY08T006

    Defects of mitochondrial performance limit physical and cognitive endurance, and resistance to age-related deterioration and trauma. However large scale screens to identify drug-like compounds that improve mitochondrial function have not taken place, bec

  8. Sustainable Materials for Thermal Management of Base Camps

    SBC: HI-Z TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: A10AT024

    Hi-Z Technology, Inc. (Hi-Z) and the University of California San Diego propose to adapt Hi-Z’s innovative Quantum Well (QW) thermoelectric (TE) technology to develop a TE cooler for the Army’s base camp tents. The cooler is to be embedded in the flexible tent materials and powered by electricity generated by photovoltaics. Hi-Z has developed nanocomposite QW TE materials that have high Figur ...

  9. Dilution refrigerator technology for scalable quantum computing

    SBC: High Precision Devices, Inc.            Topic: ARMY08T020

    Currently large capacity cryostats, capable of hosting experiments for many qubits, require expensive and hard to obtain liquid cryogens. A few small cryo-free systems exist but they are non-ideal for this use. An opportunity exists for a large scale, c
