  1. Non-destructive, Functional Metabolic Imaging of Plant and Microbial Systems

    SBC: MESA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: 27a

    Functional metabolic imaging of plant and microbial systems requires a sensitive, high spatial resolution microscopy method that can image metabolically important compounds in situ. This will require new chemically sensitive imaging methods to be developed. In this SBIR/STTR, we will develop a new coherent Raman-based microscopy technique that will improve ensitivity over existing stimulated Raman ...

  2. Ground-based Water Vapor Atmospheric Vertical Profiler

    SBC: MESA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: 25b

    Detailed accurate data on temperature variations and water vapor concentration distributions are needed for weather and climate forecasting. Water vapor is particularly important for predicting precipitation amounts from storms. Measurements are needed from the ground to the top of the troposphere at about 10 km altitude. Existing ground-based instruments often have measurement uncertainties due t ...

  3. Epitaxial GaN on flexible metal tapes for low-cost transistor devices

    SBC: IBEAM MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: 1

    GaN-based devices are the basis of a variety of modern electronics applications, especially in optoelectronics and high-frequency / high-power electronics. These devices are based on epitaxial films grown on single-crystal wafers. The single-crystal wafer substrates are limiting because of their size, expense, mechanical properties and availability. If one could make GaN-based devices over large a ...

  4. Novel Module Architecture Development for Increased Reliability and Reduced Costs

    SBC: Creative Light Source, Inc            Topic: 07a

    Statement of Problem: The US DOE has set a goal to advance photovoltaics (PV) technology to reach installed costs of less than $1/Watt. This requires module costs below $0.50/ Watt. Thin film PV provides the lowest documented production cost per watt ($0.67) of any PV technology. Module reliability has a direct impact on the levalized cost of energy (LCOE), or the cost of the energy produced by ...

  8. Segmented and Blocky Hydrocarbon Ion Pair Membranes for Fuel Cells

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: 10a

    The DOE has identified a need for thin and durable proton conducting membranes that offer enhanced energy efficiency to power zero emission vehicles. Specifically, a cost effective hydrocarbon-based alternative to expensive commercial perfluorosulfonic acid ionomers are sought. Current hydrocarbon membranes do not meet the performance or durability needed in the conditions for transportation fuel ...

  9. Electrospray Deposition of Perovskite Solar Cells

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: 16a

    Perovskite-sensitized solar cells have demonstrated high conversion efficiencies however the stability of device is limited compared to common PV technologies. Moisture, UV irradiation, and high temperature triggered degradation limit their commercial viability; therefore, improved cell durability is necessary for perovskite solar cell market entry. In addition, the scale-up and optimization of th ...
