  1. 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 ...

  2. Practical Fiber Delivered Laser Ignition Systems for Vehicles

    SBC: Seaforth LLC            Topic: 08b

    Improved ignition methods are needed for advanced vehicle combustion systems, in particular those that allow reliable ignition of lean mixtures in gasoline engines at elevated pressures. Laser ignition is a candidate technology having the potential to address these needs. However, despite more than 40 years of laser ignition research, the technology is not yet in commercial use. A critical proble ...

  3. Biological CO2 Fixation for the Production of Formic Acid Powered by Sugars

    SBC: Gate Fuels Incorporated            Topic: 12a

    Formic acid (FA, CH2O2) is the simplest carboxylic acid. It is mainly used as a preservative and antibacterial agent in livestock feed. A significant fraction of FA is used in the leather-processing, textile and rubber industries and a small fraction of formic acid is used as a cleaning agent replacing mineral acids. Aqueous FA is a promising liquid hydrogen-storage carrier with a hydrogen storage ...

  4. 1200 V/50 A AlGaN-GaN-Si MOS-HFETs and Schottky Rectifiers

    SBC: GENESIC SEMICONDUCTOR INC.            Topic: 11c

    DoEs recent emphasis on increasing fuel economy requires electrification of the vehicle powertrain, thus leading to extended range electric vehicles (EREVs), hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), battery electric vehicles (BEV) and fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV). All electric propulsion systems require high current, high-voltage (600 V-1200 V), low-loss power semiconductor switches. Present electri ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. REBCO Coated Conductor Cables for Fusion Magnets

    SBC: Advanced Conductor Technologies LLC            Topic: 22c

    The feasibility for fusion as a practical energy source needs to be enhanced significantly by removing some of the restrictions that low-temperature superconductors put on the fusion magnet systems. This can be done by using high-temperature superconductors, allowing for much larger temperature margins, a higher magnet performance and less mechanical degradation during operation. There are curren ...

  7. Complete Muon Collider Cooling Channel Design and Simulations

    SBC: MUPLUS INC            Topic: 28b

    Considerable progress has been made in developing promising subsystems for muon beam cooling channels to provide the great reduction of emittances required for an Energy-Frontier Muon Collider; but an end-to-end design is lacking. Meanwhile, the recent discovery of a Higgs-like boson has created interest in the high-energy physics community for a Higgs Factory to investigate whether its propertie ...

  9. Development of Gravitational Radiation Technology for Military Applications

    SBC: SCIX3 LLC            Topic: ST13A003

    Gravitational radiation is detected by its effect of rotating the polarization vectors of a high number N of entangled photons exhibiting quantum nonlinear geometric phase and the Klyshko effect for NOON states in a Michelson interferometer. The gravitati
