The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. High-Efficiency Microalgae Biofuel Harvest and Extraction Using Ionic Liquids

    SBC: STREAMLINE AUTOMATION, LLC            Topic: 18b

    Producing renewable fuels from algae does not use agricultural lands and could make the US energy-independent while drastically reducing greenhouse gas emissions. However, biomass processing steps are currently too energy-intensive and cost-prohibitive.We are exploring new chemistry to obtain an energy- and cost-efficient way to dry algae biomass and extract energetic substrates for conversion int ...

  2. Quantum Mechanic Based Reactive Potentials for Rapid and Reliable Prediction Of Material Properties for Advanced fossil Energy Systems

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: 23c

    This Phase I SBIR project will develop Quantum Mechanics (QM)-based reactive interatomic potentials for computer-aided development of novel materials for advanced fossil energy systems such as slagging gasifier and ultrasupercritical steam plant. Currently, the development of novel materials remains slow because it is driven by trial-and-error experimental approach. Atomistic Molecular Dynamic ( ...

  3. A New Quarter-Wave Coaxial Coupler For1.3 GHZ Superconducting Cavity

    SBC: EUCLID TECHLABS, LLC            Topic: 37b

    The current design for the rf couplers for the ILC cavity introduces unacceptable emittance growth in the beam. We have developed two new couplers designed to mitigate the emittance growth problem by preserving the axial symmetry of the cavity fields. Optimization of the design of the coaxial coupler units. Complete analysis of the ILC structure with the new coupler units was performed to confi ...

  5. Development of a Dielectric-Based Short RF Pulse Two Beam Accelerator Prototype Module

    SBC: EUCLID TECHLABS, LLC            Topic: 64a

    Ultra-high gradient and ultra-high power rf are preferred for the future high energy collider design, but, due to the rf breakdowns, they are hardly to implement under the rf pulse length (>200ns) that currently are used in many designs. We plan to investigate a dielectric-based two-beam accelerator scheme using the short rf pulse (~20ns flat top) which may sustain a high gradient (>200 MV/m) in t ...

  6. Dielectric Collimators for Linear Collider Beam Delivery

    SBC: EUCLID TECHLABS, LLC            Topic: 63d

    We submit this proposal to develop dielectric based collimator designs for future linear colliders (CLIC and ILC). We propose a research program on dielectric based collimator studies including collimator impedance optimization, beam dynamics simulations, and, finally, preliminary collimator design development.We plan to determine the feasibility of using dielectric collimators to reduce linear co ...

  7. Multipactor Suppression In Dielectric Loaded Accelerating Structures Using Vacuum Channel Surface Modification

    SBC: EUCLID TECHLABS, LLC            Topic: 65a

    Multipactor discharges in dielectric accelerating structures are a major limitation on the performance of this otherwise very promising technology. We propose a research program to study the methods for suppressing it that includes exploration of different geometrical modifications with combination of thin film coating of a low multipactoring material on the dielectric surface. Six X-band dielectr ...

  8. Development Of A 12 GHz Dielectric-Based Wakefield Power Extractor For Potential Clic Applications

    SBC: EUCLID TECHLABS, LLC            Topic: 65c

    Manufacturing cost of the metal based Power Extraction and Transfer Structure (PETS), one of the core components to of Compact Linear Collider (CLIC), is one of the major concerns to build the next generation high energy physics machine, CLIC. We propose a research program to study the possibility to replace the current metal based PETS with its dielectric counterpart, which will significantly red ...

  9. Electropolishing Niobium in an HF-Free Electrolyte

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: 45a

    The proposed program addresses the need for an improved manufacturing process for electropolishing niobium RF superconducting cavities for the International Linear Collider. Specifically, the aim of the project is to create microscopically clean and smooth niobium surfaces on the interior of the niobium cavities. The objective of the proposed SBIR program is to demonstrate and develop a sophistica ...

  10. Increasing Efficiency in Traditional Lighting Technologies High Intensity Discharge Lamps- Arc Tube Coating System for Metal Halide Color Consistency

    SBC: Energy Focus, Inc.            Topic: 17a

    Color consistency of metal halide lamps must be improved in order to have this high efficiency technology maintain market share in the big-box retail / industrial market and to gain market share in the accent / commercial spot lighting market. Big-box retail stores and industrial space use high wattage metal halide lights today, but the lack of color consistency has been leveraged by Light Emitti ...
