  1. Large-Aperture 6 T Dipole for Ion Storage Ring

    SBC: Accelerator Technology Corporation            Topic: 30g

    ATC requests Phase 1 SBIR funding to develop a 2-layer NbTi Cable-in-Conduit (CIC) conductor suitable for a large-aperture 6 T dipole. ATC has successfully developed a single-layer 13 kA NbTi CIC cable, and our collaborators at Texas A&M University (TAMU) have successfully used it to make a 3 T dipole suitable for the arcs of a 100 GeV Ion Ring that has until now been the baseline design for JLEIC ...

  2. Low-cost and Efficient Cooling of on-Detector Electronics Using Conformal Thermoelectric Modules

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: 29d

    Thermoelectric coolers (TECs) are solid-state devices with no moving parts and working fluids to provide reliable cooling power compared to traditional cooling systems such as vacuum compressors. However, their relatively high cost, small form factor and low efficiency have relegated them to niche applications such as small scaled portable coolers and yet to justify the large volume cooling compet ...

  3. Diode lasers and Small Nanoparticulate Matrices Combine to Elevate Sensitivity of MILDI-MSI

    SBC: Ionwerks, Inc.            Topic: 24a

    Imaging of molecular components of plant tissue (roots, leaves, seeds etc.) by microfocused laser desorption is maturing into a useful tool for describing plant molecular biology. Due to pioneering work in DOE laboratories and elsewhere the detection sensitivity of laser desorbed molecules is increased by the addition microscale sized colloidal metals (e.g. Sliver) or graphite to aid as a “matri ...

  4. EdgeSense: Smart Sensors and FPGA based Heterogeneous Edge Computing Unit

    SBC: CIRRUS360 LLC            Topic: 06b

    Data influx from sources at the edge of the network is exploding e.g. from sensors to collect weather data, satellite imagery, seismic sensors, LIDAR data for autonomous vehicles. Whereas traditionally over the last decade compute and storage has become increasingly centralized in the cloud. This dichotomy prevents low-­‐latency decisions and actions triggered by the data as well as incurs high ...

  5. Predictive Analytics For Optimal Well Bore Placement

    SBC: ENZIN LIMITED LIABILITY COMPANY            Topic: 21b

    Today, the US Land Unconventional Resource market increasingly deploys advanced geosteering methods with the primary objective of maximizing length of wellbore lateral section in target zone to optimize production. Real time geosteering work flows are best driven by relatively expensive near-bit measurements but instead are generally supported with less effective, low cost MWD solutions that are i ...

  6. Parametric Estimation of the Local Stress Field: A Hybrid Combinatorial and Machine Learning Based Technique

    SBC: C-Crete Technologies, LLC            Topic: 21c

    Accurate determination of state of stress at a field site is key in order to evaluate the geomechanical impacts of any industrial operation that involves injection of fluids into the deep subsurface. Direct borehole measurements of the orientation of the stress field are typically expensive, spatially limited, restricted to shallow depths, and potentially compromised by the drilling itself. Though ...

  7. Tensor Core Based Algorithms For Cryo Electron Microscopy

    SBC: Ligo Analytics, Inc.            Topic: 01a

    Cryo-electron microscopy is a powerful imagining technique that can generate highly accurate structural models for macromolecules larger than 200 kDa. However, for macromolecules having smaller masses, the amount of information used to generate structural models is frequently insufficient to result in successful structure determination. The barrier defined by macromolecular mass arises from cryo-E ...

  8. High Performance Substrate Embedded Microgrids for High Efficiency, Flexible Organic Light Emitting Diodes

    SBC: Electroninks Incorporated            Topic: 09b

    Indium tin oxide (ITO) films are currently the most widely used transparent conductor in optoelectronic applications. However, ITO suffers from several major technological and economic limitations for large area applications such as inadequate performance, high cost, and brittleness. The primary objective of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I/Phase II project is to develop the ...

  9. High Energy Safe Anodes for Lithium Ion Batteries

    SBC: Safeli LLC            Topic: 13a

    Electric vehicle manufacturers and the Department of Energy want safe and fast charging batteries for electric and hybrid vehicles with significant improvement in specific power. Of particular interest are new low-cost materials that can accept high-power recharging during regenerative braking and are compatible with existing manufacturing infrastructure. The applicant holds an exclusive license t ...

  10. 12e Low Cost Dual-Axis Solar Positioning System with Novel Monopole and Integral Lateral Support

    SBC: Helical Solar Solutions, LLC            Topic: 12e

    Small and medium-scale rural solar adoption has lagged behind traditional urban and utility-scale solar due to a variety of economic and technical issues. While the overall solar system cost stands at the forefront of these issues, there are other important concerns such as safety, dual-use applications, and the potential loss of agricultural tax exemptions that need to be addressed. A new solutio ...
