  1. A Cost-Effective High-Configurable Iris Diaphragm Beam Halo Detector

    SBC: EUCLID TECHLABS, LLC            Topic: 09b

    Over the past few years several beam halo detection techniques have been invented to minimize the beam interception rate and accuracy of measurements. However, instrumentation for these measurements are complex systems and are not modular. The systems tend to be specialized for a single facility, or even a single part of a beamline. Also, these systems can hardly be reused or moved to another loca ...

  5. Nanostructured GaAs Photocathodes for Light Trapping and Ion Damage Tolerance

    SBC: Euclid Beamlabs, LLC            Topic: 30d

    Photocathodes provide laser-triggered pulses with high peak currents. High average currents require high QE to avoid laser-heating damage. However, QE in DC guns decays with extracted charge due to back-bombardment from gas ionized by the emitted electron beam. Thus higher current increases back-bombardment and shortens life proportionally to extracted charge. This proposal addresses the charge-li ...

  6. Highly Selective Anion Exchange Membranes for Non-aqueous Redox Flow Batteries

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 19a

    There is a need for long duration energy storage at wind farms and solar photovoltaic facilities and redox flow cell batteries could potentially solve this problem. Non-aqueous redox flow batteries are superior to the more common aqueous flow batteries because they can avoid the problems caused by the breakdown of water at high voltage. However, most non-aqueous flow batteries are based on transit ...

  7. Thermal Interface Materials for Cooling High-Power Electronics

    SBC: Skyhaven Systems, LLC            Topic: 29d

    The Department of Energy is soliciting advancements in cooling high power density electronics such as RF devices used in the PIP-II MEBT beam deflector. GaN FETs in particular have a five times lower capacitance and five times faster switching speed than traditional MOSFETs, and thus are being integrated into particle beam choppers and beam deflectors at Fermilab. The thermal management needs of t ...

  10. Computational Tool for Modeling and Design of Rugged GaAs- based Polarized Electron Sources

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: 30d

    High-current, high-brightness, spin-polarized electron beams are required for next generation electron-ion colliders (EIC). Proposed cathode designs are based on negative electron affinity (NEA) GaAs. A major limitation of these cathodes is their operational lifetime due to their susceptibility to damages in electron guns. Recent experiments done in Cornell University have demonstrated that a NEA ...
