  1. 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 ...

  2. Amplifiers for High Repetition Rate Diode-Pumped Ultra-Intense Femtosecond Lasers

    SBC: XUV Lasers, Inc.            Topic: 25c

    The problem being addressed is the development of high intensity ultrashort pulse lasers, in recognition that today’s ultra-high intensity lasers are limited to repetition rates of < 10 Hz. Technical solutions are sought to enable the generation of high energy (joule-level) laser pulses that can be focused to highly relativistic intensity at high repetition rates (100-1000 Hz). The proposed proj ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Compositionally Gradient Garnet/PVDF-HFP Hybrid Membranes for Li-Metal Batteries

    SBC: HAZEN RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: 19a

    Development of Li-ion conducting membranes capable of supporting Li-metal anode to enable high- performance Li-metal batteries (LiMB) is a priority for the Department of Energy (DOE). State-of- the-art membranes used for Li-ion batteries (LiB) are not suitable for LiMB and have a number of disadvantages including poor cycling performance, low Li-ion conductivity, and electrochemical stability with ...

  5. Defect Free, Ultra-Rapid Thinning/Polishing of Diamond Crystal Radiator Targets (20??m) for Highly Linearly Polarized Photon Beams

    SBC: Sinmat Inc            Topic: 46e

    The fabrication of high-quality ultra thin (~20 micron) diamond crystals targets for 9 GeV highly polarized photon beams is an outstanding challenge. Current state of the art polishing/thinning techniques are not successful in thinning single crystal diamond to such dimension because of its extreme hardness and chemical inertness. These techniques create significant stresses surface and sub-surfac ...

  6. Flow Battery Structures to Improve Performance and Reduce Manufacturing Cost

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: 21d

    Redox flow batteries are a promising technology for electrical energy storage for renewable energy sources; however traditional redox flow batteries are limited in their use due to non-uniform pressure drops and mass transfer limitations, as well as high manufacturing costs related to the felt material costs for the electrode and component alignment challenges during manufacturing.General Statemen ...

  7. Green Storage for HPC with Solid State Disk (SSD) Technologies

    SBC: RNET TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 38a

    Solid State Drives (SSDs) are emerging as attractive alternatives to traditional HDDs due to there reduced power consumption and potential for increased performance. SSDs have the potential to improve the performance of both Checkpoint Restart (CPR) and the Metadata Server (MDS) for high performance File Systems, e.g., Lustre. However, the write performance of SSDs is relatively poor (compared to ...

  8. High Temperature Unique Low Thermal Conductivity Thermal Barrier Coating (TBC) Architectures

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: 27c

    Higher operating temperature for the gas turbine engine is needed for enhanced efficiency, lower emission and increased performance goal. The current state-of-the-art thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) are not adequate to provide the needed protection for the metallic components of the turbine engine operating at higher TBC surface temperature (>1300

  9. HPC Application Energy Profiling for Energy Optimization

    SBC: RNET TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 36a

    Energy consumption is quickly becoming one of the primary bottlenecks of compute clusters and supercomputers. The DOE is a primary developer and consumer of these power hungry supercomputers, however smaller cluster machines are also widely used through other government agencies and industries. Yet, there are few power profiling tools that allow application developers transparent insight into the ...

  10. Improved Capillary Guided Laser Wakefield Accelerators based on Diamond Materials

    SBC: EUCLID TECHLABS, LLC            Topic: 03d

    The laser plasma accelerator (LPA) is a very promising technology for generating gamma rays for the detection of contraband bulk nuclear materials, but is currently limited by the rate at which the beam can be pulsed. Erosion of the capillary plasma channel is the main limiting factor and can be mitigated through the use of artificial diamond to construct the channel. Computational modeling and ...
