  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 collaboration to develop a commercialization path or a Photonic Memory Controller Module (P-MCM)

    SBC: PLCC2 LLC            Topic: 04a

    As computational density for high-performance computing and big-data services continues to scale, performance scalability of next generation computing systems is becoming increasingly constrained by limitations in memory access, power dissipation and chip packaging. The processor-memory communication bottleneck, a major challenge in current multicore processors due to limited pin-out and power bud ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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. Advanced Morphing Moulage for Medical Training (AMM-MT)

    SBC: Vcom3D, Inc.            Topic: DHA17A002

    For this Phase I SBIR proposal, Vcom3D proposes to design advanced medical moulage that accurately simulates the progression of an injury or pathology by morphing through a series of clinical states to enable learners to confirm the progression of the wound and to determine whether iatrogenic errors or pathologies occurred duing treatment. The physical morphing moulage may be applied to medical m ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Atomically Precise Membranes for the Separation of Hydrocarbons

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: 15a

    Separations often account for a majority of process costs. This is because all traditional separation processes have inherent weaknesses that prevent the system from achieving perfect (or even near perfect in many instances) selectivity. These weaknesses result in large recycle streams and require multiple separation units in concert in order to produce a product clean enough for use or sale. An a ...

  10. 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 ...
