  2. A Microfluidic Ice Nucleating Particle Counter for Continuous Measurements from Small Aerial Platforms

    SBC: HANDIX SCIENTIFIC Inc.            Topic: 23a

    Quantifying atmospheric aerosol, clouds and precipitation processes are critical needs for understanding and interpreting Earth’s changing energy budget, is a DOE objective, and is of broader benefit to the public. Specifically, the formation of ice in the atmosphere depends on the nature and abundance of ice nucleating particles, and has major implications for precipitation and cloud interactio ...

  3. Coal-Core Composites for Low Cost, Light Weight, Fire-Resistant Panels and Roofing Materials

    SBC: Semplastics EHC LLC            Topic: 18c

    Two main problems are targeted by the proposed work: (1) the underutilization of coal, a valuable natural resource, has led to a catastrophic drop in employment within the coal industry ecosystem in specific geographic areas in the country; and (2) the need within the insurance-driven roof replacement market for a suitable, light weight, low cost, high durability roofing material.These problems wi ...

  4. A Microfluidic Biosensor Platform for Real-Time Water Monitoring

    SBC: Quantitative Biosciences, Inc.            Topic: 22b

    Access to clean, reliable water supplies is critical to our quality of life and our economy, yet across the country thousands of hazardous waste sites are so heavily contaminated that the underlying groundwater doesn’t meet drinking water standards. Measuring contamination in the environment is critical to human health and to the DOE Biological and Environmental Research (BER) program’s goal t ...

  5. Ultra-High Frame-Rate Pixelated Direct Electron STEM Detector

    SBC: DIRECT ELECTRON, L.P.            Topic: 24a

    Multi-color electron microscopy (EM) is a powerful new technique for studying biological ultrastructure with selective lanthanide-ion tagging of specific components of interest. The technique is analogous to multi-color fluorescence microscopy, but at about 100× higher magnification. However, the current method for acquiring multi-color EM data based on energy-filtered TEM (EFTEM) requires high-p ...

  6. Repair of Materials Degradation in Light Water Reactor Components

    SBC: UES SERVICES INC            Topic: 08c

    Corrosion induced degradation of material components in the harsh environment of light water reactor can impact reactor reliability, availability, safe operation and eventually life. A possible remedy could be to replace the replaceable components at appropriate moments which may not be economically favorable. Thus there is a need to develop technologies to repair degraded materials. STATEMENT OF ...

  7. Breakthrough Photo-thermal Modulation-based IR Microscope for Sub-micron Characterization of Cellular Metabolism and Chemical Processes within Cells

    SBC: Photothermal Spectroscopy Corp.            Topic: 25a

    A key goal of bioenergy research is largely focused on converting low-energy, photosynthetically-generated plant sugars to high-value, high-energy bio-chemicals and biofuel products. Biofuel precursors are generated via cellular processes that occur on the microscopic scale, but currently available analytical instrumentation does not provide the ability to adequately probe critical biochemical pro ...

  8. Novel Isotope Sensor for Spatially-resolved Analysis of Nutrient Exchange in the Rhizosphere TechNologies for Characterizing the Rhizosphere

    SBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 22a

    Ensuring adequate agricultural productivity in the face of an increasing human population is a major concern with implications for both production of bioenergy products and global food security. Increasing agricultural productivity is needed, which requires a stronger understanding of soil biogeochemical processes that impact plant nutrient availability. The project is focused on developing an inn ...

  9. Reinforced Radiation Resistant SiC-SiC Composites for Nuclear Reactors and Fuel Cladding

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: 08b

    Limitations of the existing nuclear grade SiC composites as applied to high-performance nuclear systems include difficulty joining complex geometries and instability of those joints under irradiation, poor initial thermal conductivity and significant conductivity degradation after irradiation, matrix micro-cracking, and difficulty in producing complex shaped components at low cost. Thus, while ...

  10. Mass Spectroscopy for Atmospheric Gas Analysis

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: 20b

    Three major components—nitrogen, oxygen, and argon—make up 99.96% of Earth’s atmosphere, and measurement of the concentration/flux of these high concentration elements is crucial in studying changes in global climate and ecology. However, the current high-precision measurement technologies are better suited for detecting gases with low concentration, and a new technology needs to be ...
