  2. INTERMEDIATES-

    SBC: Ari Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT WILL STUDY THE REMOVAL OF SOX FROM COM- BUSTION PROCESS FLUE GASES FOLLOWED BY DIRECT CONVERSION TO ELEMENTAL SULFUR, USING CHELATED IRON THAT HAS BEEN REDUCED TO FORM A CHELATE:FES COMPLEX. THE PROCESS WOULD HAVE SALEABLE ELEMENTAL SULFUR AS THE ONLY SIGNIFICANT BYPRODUCT AND WOULD OPERATE WITH THE CHELATED IRON AS A REGENERABLE CATALYTIC REAGENT. THE REACTIONS TO BE EXAMINED IN THIS ...

  3. PREVIOUS RESEARCH HAS INDICATED THAT THE THERMOPHILLIC BACTERIA, SULFOLOBUS ACIDOCALDARIUS, AND POSSIBLY RELATED VARIANTS, CAN REMOVE 75% OF THE SULFUR PRESENT IN HIGH-SULFUR COAL IN 3 TO 4 DAYS USING ELEVATED TEMPERATURES AND ACID CONDITIONS.

    SBC: Coal Biotech Corpon            Topic: N/A

    PREVIOUS RESEARCH HAS INDICATED THAT THE THERMOPHILLIC BACTERIA, SULFOLOBUS ACIDOCALDARIUS, AND POSSIBLY RELATED VARIANTS, CAN REMOVE 75% OF THE SULFUR PRESENT IN HIGH-SULFUR COAL IN 3 TO 4 DAYS USING ELEVATED TEMPERATURES AND ACID CONDITIONS. THIS RESEARCH PROGRAM WILL DETERMINE, USING A BENCH-SCALE, FED-BATCH SYSTEM, THE RATE AND EFFICIENCY OF SULFOLOBUS DESULFURIZATION ON AQUEOUS COAL SLURRIES. ...

  4. HIGH EFFICIENCY TAR SAND OIL RECOVERY

    SBC: Energy Recovery Technology            Topic: N/A

    THE COUNTER CURRENT SOLID STREAMS HEAT TRANSFER (CCSSHT) RETORT IS A NEW PROCESS FOR EFFICIENT OIL RECOVERY FROM OUR PLENTIFUL TAR SANDS AND OIL SHALE RESERVES. AS A HEAT RECOVERY SOIL INCINERATOR, IT HAS THE ADVANTAGES OF REDUCED FUEL DEMAND AND LOW COMBUSTION GAS PRODUCT (REDUCING AIR POLLUTION CONTROL NEEDS FOR THE INCINERATOR). THE CCSSHT UNIT IS A SINGLE VESSEL ROTATING KILN THAT (1) PREHEATS ...

  5. THE SENSITIVITY OF NUCLEAR TRACK-RECORDING PLASTICS MAY BE MODIFIED BY MOLECULAR DESIGN.

    SBC: Frontier Research Corp            Topic: N/A

    THE SENSITIVITY OF NUCLEAR TRACK-RECORDING PLASTICS MAY BE MODIFIED BY MOLECULAR DESIGN. SUBSTITUTION OF GROUPS ADJACENT TO RADIATION-SENSITIVE BONDS AND INTRODUCTION OF NEW CENTRES OF INSTABILITY SHOULD GREATLY INCREASE THE SENSITIVITY TO IONIZING RADIATION. MODIFICATION TO THE CR-39 MONOMER WILL BE CONSIDERED BECAUSE THE POLYMER PRODUCED FROM IT IS BY FAR THE BEST PLASTIC TRACK DETECTOR YET DISC ...

  6. NEW VME-FASTBUS INTERFACING ALTERNATIVES

    SBC: Kineticsystems Corp            Topic: N/A

    BECAUSE OF THE RAPIDLY INCREASING DEMANDS ON DATA ACQUISITION AND COMPUTER PROCESSING SYSTEMS IN MOST DOE-FUNDED RESEARCH TODAY, FASTBUS HAS BECOME A VITAL PRESENCE IN HIGH-ENERGY PHYSICS PROJECTS WORLDWIDE. SIMILARLY, BECAUSE OF ITS BROAD FLEXIBILITY AND INTERNATIONAL CHARACTER, VMEBUS IS EMERGING AS A POPULAR HOST AND POST-PROCESSING ENVIRONMENT. ALTHOUGH SOME SYSTEMSHAVE BEEN DESIGNED THAT ALLO ...

  7. LARGE, THIN, FLAT, FULL-COLOR DISPLAYS FOR GRAPHICS DISPLAY UNITS

    SBC: Lucitron Inc            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS A GREAT NEED FOR IMPROVED DISPLAYS TO DEAL WITH MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF DATA FROM COMPLEX EXPERIMENTS. EVEN WITH A GREAT DEAL OF COMPUTER MANIPULATION, THE RESULTS MUSTBE PRESENTED TO THE EXPERIMENTER IN COMPREHENSIBLE FORM. THIS IS BEST DONE USING HIGH-RESOLUTION COLOR GRAPHICS. THEDISPLAY SHOULD BE LARGE ENOUGH SO THAT A GROUP OF EXPERIMENTERS CAN WORK WITH IT AND INTERACT WITH EACH OTHER, A ...

  8. METHOD & DEVICE FOR NONDESTRUCTIVE INSPECTION OF NIOBIUM TO IMPROVE SUPERCONDUCTIVITY

    SBC: Sonoscan Inc            Topic: N/A

    A NONDESTRUCTIVE TEST DEVICE WILL BE DEVELOPED TO INSPECT NIOBIUM PLATES AND NIOBIUM WELDS FOR DEFECTS WHICH CAUSE ITS SUPERCONDUCTING PROPERTIES TO BE QUENCHED. HIGH QUALITY NIOBIUM IS REQUIRED FOR ADVANCED MACHINES SUCH AS FUTURE GENERATION RADIO FREQUENCY PARTICLE ACCELERATORS. AT PRESENT, THERE IS NO ESTABLISHED TECHNIQUE FOR LOCATING AND DIFFERENTIATING THE TYPES OF DEFECTS CRITICAL TO SUPERC ...

  10. Dynamic Quantum Frequency Conversion for Quantum Networks

    SBC: NUCRYPT LLC            Topic: 06a

    Functions like data format conversion and signal routing are ubiquitous in traditional communication networks, but need modification to be suitable for use in future quantum-enabled networks. In particular, quantum signals do not allow for electronic processing and certain metrics like insertion loss and noise are much more critical for quantum signals than traditional optical signals. We will inv ...
