  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 Concrete Additive Manufacturing Process for Fixed and Floating Wind Turbine Foundations and Towers

    SBC: JC Solutions            Topic: 14b

    Tall towers and foundations for modern offshore and land-based wind turbines are too large to transport over roads or rail due to their extremely large dimensions. Existing “one-off” on-site construction methods are too expensive, and are too slow for manufacturing foundations and towers in the large numbers needed, especially for offshore components manufactured in ports with limited lay-down ...

  3. Additive Manufacturing of Scalable 3D Resonators

    SBC: Global Research and Development Inc.            Topic: 29b

    This proposal is submitted in response to the SBIR/STTR Office of Science related to Quantum Information Science (QIS) Supporting Technologies. There is the need for fabrication techniques for scalable 3D Superconducting Radio Frequency (SRF) Structures for Quantum Information Systems. In this proposal we will develop an additive manufacturing approach to developing superconducting 3D microwave re ...

  4. Advance Additive Manufacturing Method for SRF Cavities of Various Geometries

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: 34a

    Current state-of-the-art SRF accelerating cavities require the use of many complex and expensive techniques throughout their fabrication/performance cycle. This project will utilize a novel Additive Manufacturing (AM) process to produce nearly monolithic SRF niobium cavities of arbitrary shape with features such as optimized wall thickness and/or integrated stiffeners, greatly reducing the cost a ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Advanced Spectroscopic Capabilities for 3-D Synchrotron X-Ray Microscopes

    SBC: Xradia            Topic: 09a

    Many important technology challenges today such as the capacity and life time of batteries require new characterization techniques to understand and improve performance. In the STTR Phase II project, novel x-ray microscope techniques and software are developed to be able to image samples in three dimensions and determine chemical composition and function on a microscopic level. As known from ubi ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Atomically Precise Membranes for the Separation of Hydrocarbons

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: 02a

    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 ...

  9. Axisymmetric and Focusing Analyzers to Enable Efficient Powder and Residual Stress Neutron Diffractometers

    SBC: ADELPHI TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: 12a

    Although thermal and cold neutron scattering is widely used, and is critical for success in many areas of materials science and engineering, relatively low neutron fluxes severely limit applications of not only laboratory neutrons generators, but also large national neutron facilities. State-of-the-art thermal and cold neutron sources are large expensive national facilities, which serve diverse co ...

  10. Cavity Enhanced Thomson Scattering System for Low Temperature Plasmas

    SBC: Seaforth LLC            Topic: 30a

    Electrons play a very key role in plasma chemistry and dynamics of low temperature plasmas. Improved capability for measuring electron number density, ne, and electron energy distribution function, EEDF, in weakly ionized low temperature plasmas would benefit both fundamental study and application areas. For example, the capability would directly benefit emerging research targeted at modifying and ...
