  1. High Power Ceramic Disk Lasers with Gradient Doping made by Direct Ink Writing

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 25c

    The power output of the high power lasers used in physics research is limited by the materials available for making gain media. Future increases in power require new and better materials. Operation at high power creates great thermal stresses that can lead to birefringence, thermal lensing or physical damage to the host. Effective cooling and small temperature gradients are critical for achieving ...

  3. Large Volume Plasma Generation for CO2 Processing

    SBC: FGC Plasma Solutions, Inc.            Topic: 20d

    It is attractive therefore to turn Carbon dioxide (๐ถ๐ถ๐‘‚๐‘‚2) which is typically considered a pollutant, into a valuable industrial resource. Plasma has long been known as an attractive method of treating ๐ถ๐ถ๐‘‚๐‘‚2 in order to produce other industrial feedstocks such as CO. For this process to be industrially viable, plasma treatment of ๐ถ๐ถ๐‘‚๐‘‚2 must be improved to minimiz ...

  4. Multi-Stroke Variable Displacement Oscillating Pump for Hydrokinetic Energy

    SBC: RESOLUTE MARINE ENERGY, INC.            Topic: 14c

    Over 1 billion people suffer from the effects of water scarcity. The vast majority of those affected live near a coastline in developing countries, on islands, and in remote communities. To satisfy the potable water needs of a growing world population, experts agree that seawater desalination on a large scale is required. Near-shore ocean waves provide an inexhaustible, consistent, and widely dist ...

  6. 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 todayโ€™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 ...

  7. Infinitely Recyclable Bioplastics (Topic 8, subtopic b)

    SBC: SusMer, Inc.            Topic: 08b

    Plastics are indispensable materials for the modern life and global economy, but current practices in the generation and disposal of commodity plastics are largely unsustainable and causing severe worldwide plastics pollution and enormous materials' energy and value losses to the economy. In particular, plastics are a material of choice in packaging applications but they are currently designed for ...

  8. 3A Expanding Access to Electronic Property Modeling in Scintillator Crystal Growth and Development

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 03a

    The development of radiation detection materials would benefit with greater access to computational models that relate physical traits seen in manufacture with complex energy transitions occurring in the material that control operating performance. However, the HPC requirements behind these models remain beyond the reach of most businesses involved in this small yet vital field impacting National ...

  9. Low-cost, Time-resolved Chemical Characterization of Atmospheric Aerosols

    SBC: Aerosol Devices Inc.            Topic: 23b

    The composition of atmospheric particulate matter (โ€œaerosolsโ€) strongly influences health and environmental impacts, but there exist few time-resolved, long-term records of particle-phase chemical composition due to lack of appropriate monitoring tools. Needed is an instrument that is robust, easy-to-operate, with automated calibrations and data reduction, to provide operationally-inexpensive ...
