  1. Accelerating Metagenomics Using Graphics Processing Units

    SBC: Multicoreware, Inc.            Topic: 35a

    A key application of the technological breakthrough associated with decreased cost of DNA sequencing is metagenomics. Metagenomics is the process of sequencing DNA from whole ecosystems, rather than individuals or cultures. This approach has the potential to allow the dissection of microbial ecosystems in biofuel producing agricultural land, toxic contaminated sites and hydrocarbon recovery enviro ...

  2. A Comprehensive Web Infrastructure for Standardizing, Storing, and Launching Density Functional Calculations of Materials and Chemical Compounds

    SBC: Citrine Informatics, Inc.            Topic: 09a

    Density functional theory is used by many researchers funded by the Department of Energy as a method for predicting the behavior of chemicals and materials used in energy applications. However, results of these calculations are often not standardized and, even when they are, expert-level understand of the methods is needed in order to properly perform a simulation. The energy research community a ...

  3. Advanced Membranes for CO2 Capture from Existing Coal-fired Power Plants

    SBC: Nextech Materials, Ltd.            Topic: 24a

    Coal is an abundant source of energy in the USA, but is not currently utilized effectively. Recently, the DOE has begun a carbon sequestration program is to develop advanced CO2 capture and compression technology for existing coal-fired plants with increased efficiency with no more than a 35% increase in the cost of electricity. This will require new approaches and technologies to be successful. N ...

  5. Amplifiers for High Repetition Rate Diode-Pumped Ultra-Intense Femtosecond Lasers

    SBC: XUV Lasers, Inc.            Topic: 25c

    The problem being addressed is the development of high intensity ultrashort pulse lasers, in recognition that today’s ultra-high intensity lasers are limited to repetition rates of < 10 Hz. Technical solutions are sought to enable the generation of high energy (joule-level) laser pulses that can be focused to highly relativistic intensity at high repetition rates (100-1000 Hz). The proposed proj ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Bio-inspired Macromolecules Containing Atomically Precise Catalytic Active Sites

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: 09

    High selectivity in chemical reactions is the key to reducing costs, energy consumption and emissions in chemical processing. More selective and active catalysts will reduce the need for recovering unreacted chemicals for recycle and removing byproducts. Reducing the burden on separation processes will greatly reduce the energy required for chemical production. We propose to design macromolecular ...

  8. Cavity Enhanced Thomson Scattering System for Low Temperature Plasmas

    SBC: Seaforth LLC            Topic: 30a

    Electrons play a very key role in plasma chemistry and dynamics of low temperature plasmas. Improved capability for measuring electron number density, ne, and electron energy distribution function, EEDF, in weakly ionized low temperature plasmas would benefit both fundamental study and application areas. For example, the capability would directly benefit emerging research targeted at modifying and ...

  9. Cervical Spine Health Improvement Products

    SBC: Switchbox, Inc.            Topic: DHP18B001

    Most standard-of-care tools and techniques for evaluating neck disorders are subjective, unreliable, and do not provide actionable information for providers, payers, and organizations to deliver efficient and effective care. This lack of objective neck he

  10. Coated Aerogel Electrodes for Photoelectrochemical Methanol Formation

    SBC: Innosense Llc            Topic: 11c

    Due to the current oil crisis, the United States has begun to focus on alternative energy sources for transportation and other domestic applications. Methanol offers a renewable alternative to many fossil fuels that can be a raw material for the synthetic hydrocarbons and their products. ISL proposes to fabricate a photo-electrochemical cell that converts carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas which can ...
