  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. Numerical Model Development For Supercritical CO2 Oxy-Combustion

    SBC: COMBUSTION SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: 22d

    Supercritical CO2 (sCO2) power cycles operate at high pressures (300 bar) and high inlet temperatures (700°C), placing the CO2 well above the critical point. Current plans are to operate these devices using natural gas or syngas, burning with oxygen at fairly low combustion temperatures (1100 °C). However, there are gaps in the understanding of oxy-fuel combustion with CO2 under supercritical co ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Lightweight and Thermally Insulating Nanowood

    SBC: Inventwood LLC            Topic: 09a

    Current thermal insulating materials in buildings have many shortcomings, such as a lack meaningful mechanical strength as well as potential health and environmental risks.Moreover, to be effective, they require invasive retrofits which entail a highupfront cost to consumers, which has created hurdles in meeting DOE efficiency objectives.Delignified wood with aligned cellulose nanofibers (nanowood ...

  10. A Self-Powered, Wireless Sensor System for Remote and Long-Term Monitoring of Internal Conditions of Spent Nuclear Fuel Dry-Storage Casks

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 33a

    A major concern with nuclear energy is the safe storage of the spent nuclear fuel before final disposal.A monitoring sensor located inside a storage cask to provide direct measurements of internal conditions is of particular interest to DOE.Conventional wireless sensors have inherent limitations because the stainless steel canister shields the RF signals from wireless sensors inside the canister t ...
