  2. Ultra Lightweight High Pressure Hydrogen Fuel Tanks Reinforced with Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: Applied Nanotech, Inc.            Topic: 03a

    At the present time, carbon fiber tanks are very expensive, with the high pressure vessel industry standard Toray T700 carbon fiber costing between $20 and $50 per kilogram alone. At this high price, the carbon fiber currently comprises as much as 75% of the overall tank cost and is a major roadblock on the path to commercialization. To make hydrogen fuel cells in early market and light-duty vehic ...

  4. High Flux Ti Nanofiltration Membrane for Efficient Processing of Bioproducts

    SBC: CERAHELIX, INC.            Topic: 10h

    Complex mixtures encountered in biomass derived process streams include components which can inhibit fermentation. This can have a negative impact on the production capacity of the biorefinery as it can greatly decrease the output from the conversion of the biomass derived sugars to fuels and chemicals. Removing these inhibitors is a challenging process separations problem due to the chemical comp ...

  5. Production of Commerical High Specific Activity Sn-117M Radiochemical and Chelates

    SBC: Clear Vascular, Inc.            Topic: 36b

    As outlined in the document Technical Topics Descriptions, FY 2012, Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Programs, July 2011, page 137: Sn-117m has gotten a lot of interest in the last few years. It has favorable nuclear properties for both imaging and therapy. However commercial quantities of the isotope at high specific activity are not availab ...

  6. Software Architecture for High-Speed Synchronous Network Instrumentation

    SBC: Crossfield Technology Llc            Topic: 32d

    Particle detectors and other large-scale experimental apparatus employ a large number of channels producing very high data rates. A high-speed, synchronous data acquisition system is needed that uses commodity high-bandwidth networks for high-rate transmission of collected data from the data source to storage or control systems. Detector elements must be synchronized to within 10 ns and event tri ...

  7. A Python Interface to Trilinos/Tpetra for High-Level Access to HPC Solvers

    SBC: ENTHOUGHT, INC.            Topic: 02b

    For many classes of programming problems that require parallel libraries, years of experience are required to effectively use those libraries, and frequently they are difficult to use, requiring complicated programming interfaces. The large time investment and limited usability prohibit typical domain specialists, who have limited programming expertise, from creating parallel codes and benefiting ...

  8. High Specific Activity Sm-153 by Post Irradiation Isotope Separation

    SBC: IsoTherapeutics Group LLC            Topic: 46b

    Samarium-153 (153Sm) has ideal nuclear properties for a variety of therapeutic applications; however, it is only available in low specific activity (radioactivity/weight) form. While large quantities can be made by the 152Sm(n,)153Sm reaction in a medium flux reactor such as at the University of Missouri Research Reactor Center (MURR), typical irradiation parameters result in less th ...

  9. Refactor++: Automated Support for Program Enhancements

    SBC: SEMANTIC DESIGNS            Topic: 62c

    Science and engineering depend on evolving ever more complex software, typically coded in C++, to investigate phenomena or design sophisticated products. The rate of delivered value for such software is often limited by its organization, and scientists/engineers spend significant effort trying to understand the code organization and restructuring the code to enable the next interesting concept o ...

  10. Tantalum Tube for Diffusion Barriers

    SBC: Shear Form Inc            Topic: 64a

    Diffusion barriers used in Nb3Sn wire are currently fabricated by wrapping Ta sheet into a tube with an overlap seam. The result of current practice is non- uniform deformation in the Ta sheet as it thins by wire drawing because of non-uniform grain size and texture. In addition, a significant portion of the diffusion barrier is twice as thick as need be. The overlap is wasteful of Ta and produc ...
