  1. Multiplexed Signal Recovery for Ultrafast Diagnostics

    SBC: MESA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: 24b

    There is a growing need for high bandwidth (greater than 2 terahertz) long duration optical waveform measurement in telecommunications, laser development, and data collection from optically encoded sensors.Sensor monitoring requires multiplexing multiple sensors for cost reduction.The system must also be able to completely characterize laser driver pulses at multiple locations, providing the inten ...

  2. HYPERTUNNEL- A MR/VR Remote Collaboration System

    SBC: FactualVR, Inc.            Topic: 05a

    An important challenge electric utilities will face in the foreseeable future is a workforce that is rapidly retiring and the resulting loss of institutional knowledge.This will also create a vulnerability in the electric grid, especially during widespread power outages where recovery efforts rely on a team of well-trained and experienced personnel.Disasters like Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico hig ...

  3. Collaborative VR/AR Data Visualization Tool

    SBC: Woodruff Scientific, Inc.            Topic: 21c

    Computational physicists and diagnosticians need to analyze 3D data to gain understanding of their simulations or diagnostic results.Visualizing 3D Physics effects by use of 2D screens can limit understanding or even create misunderstandings.Communication of results between collaborators can be difficult when using 2D images or movies, sent by email with written explanations: one finds oneself rep ...

  4. Atomic Force Microscope Active Optical Probe for Single-Molecule Imaging and Time-Resolved Optical Spectroscopy

    SBC: Actoprobe LLC            Topic: 08b

    While science and technology fields greatly benefit from Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) in surface characterization, time-resolved chemical imaging on the single-molecule level, e.g., Near-Field Scanning Optical Spectroscopy and Ultrafast Tip-Enhanced Spectroscopy, lags far behind — current scanning probe microscopy only obtains information about mechanical, but not chemical/optical properties. T ...

  5. Diode Laser Sensor for Contaminants in Hydrogen Fuel

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 14b

    Low concentrations of contaminants in hydrogen fuel can foul or damage fuel cells in hydrogen fuel cell vehicles. Currently there is infrequent monitoring of hydrogen quality at filling stations. There is no instrumentation available to perform this function at the station. In this project, a diode laser instrument is being developed that will be able to perform these measurements at filling stati ...

  6. SCOREBOARD: The Management and Creation of In Situ Data Extractions and Computational Steering at Exascale Through HPC-FV

    SBC: JMSI INC.            Topic: 03b

    With in situ data management favoring workflows composed of multiple simulations and analyses connected in transit on heterogeneous machines, scientists and engineers need for a tool that enables them to create data extracts, visualizations, and interactively monitor and steer their simulations. JMSI is developing SCOREBOARD, an easy to use library for data extract production and simulation monito ...

  7. Hardening Advanced Methods for Predicting 3D Unsteady Flows Around Wind Turbines for Industrial Use

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: 02c

    Wind power plays an increasingly important role in satisfying the power needs of the United States. With increased market penetration, unanticipated unsteady loading induced failures, installation related reductions in power generation and significant maintenance costs have underscored the need to predict the unsteady fluid structure interactions related to turbine layout and off-design wind condi ...

  8. Next Generation Portable Power Amplifier

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: SOCOM131004

    MaXentric proposes the GAU2x2 wideband power amplifier system. The design combines MaXentric’s wideband RF PA technology with advanced digital signal processing in a single small footprint package. This tight integration is made possible through the extremely high efficiency and low power dissipation. Since very little power is dissipated as heat, the package and heat sink size can be minimized. ...

  9. Leveraging Wikipedia to Create a Comprehensive Science & Technology Encyclopedia

    SBC: Deep Web Technologies, Llc            Topic: N/A

    The Department of Energy, particularly through the Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI), provides access to high quality scientific and technical content to scientists, researchers, and the public through a number of science portals. Despite this service, thousands of additional information sources are hard to identify and access; yet, the availability of such sources would lead ...

  10. Diamond-Hardfaced WC/Co-Cr Nanocomposites for Extended Service Life of Pump Bearings in Geothermal Wells

    SBC: DIAMOND MATERIALS INC            Topic: N/A

    Renewable energy sources include electrical generators driven by steam from geothermal wells. To exploit this resource, submersible pumps with extended service lives are required to improve the economics of today¿s geothermal systems. A major problem is corrosive wear experienced by the pump bearings, when the lubricating brine becomes contaminated with fine sand particles. Typically, the beari ...
