  1. Portable, low power soil gas analyzer

    SBC: MESA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: 19a

    There is a need for soil gas analyzers to characterize subsurface biogeochemical processes by measuring simultaneously multiple gases that are signatures for specific processes. Instruments should be significantly more portable and require less power than what is currently available. The analyzers need to be suitable for field work and laboratory studies. How This Problem is Being Addressed: Rugge ...

  2. Portable nitrous oxide sensor for understanding agricultural and soil emissions

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 18c

    Nitrous oxide is the third most important greenhouse gas (GHG,) with an atmospheric lifetime of ~114 years and a global warming impact ~300 times greater than that of CO2. The main cause of nitrous oxide’s atmospheric increase is anthropogenic emissions, and over 80% of the current global anthropogenic flux is related to agriculture, including associated land-use change. An accurate assessment o ...

  3. Epitaxial GaN on flexible metal tapes for low-cost transistor devices

    SBC: IBEAM MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: 1

    GaN-based devices are the basis of a variety of modern electronics applications, especially in optoelectronics and high-frequency / high-power electronics. These devices are based on epitaxial films grown on single-crystal wafers. The single-crystal wafer substrates are limiting because of their size, expense, mechanical properties and availability. If one could make GaN-based devices over large a ...

  4. A High Power Density Rotary Engine for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N10AT001

    In Phase I MER demonstrated the superior performance and power-to-weight ratios of the VS-Rotary engine. In Phase II MER will team with the University of Arizona who will provide engine modeling, simulation, and analysis along with advanced precision machining and fabrication. MER will also team with NCE of Tucson to provide test and systems integration development of the engine to the applicatio ...

  5. Optical Tomography for 3D Imaging of Fine Roots

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 18c

    Monitoring the root systems of plants is essential to improving models of crop productivity, soil carbon sequestration and biogeochemical cycling. Fine roots (considered to be smaller than 1-2 mm in diameter) are the dominant component of this system, with roots & lt;0.2 mm in diameter often representing 50% to 95% of total root length. The plasticity and dynamism of fine ...

  6. Picosecond Timing Measurement IC for Particle Physics Experiments

    SBC: Alphacore, Inc.            Topic: 27j

    Several high energy physics experiments require accurate timing measurements and transient digitization at high sampling rates, equaling or exceeding 5 gigasamples per second (GSPS). To date, only a few transient digitizer chips have been developed for this purpose and they are based on storing the analog samples onto long buffers from which they are digitized with low-rate analog-to-digital conve ...

  7. A Compact, High Intensity Laser Source for Inverse Compton Scattering

    SBC: Voss Scientific, LLC            Topic: 20a

    A new diagnostic is currently being developed by Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) which will be able to provide direct measurements for the energy and density of “runaway” electrons in tokamak fusion reactors with unprecedented resolution. The multi-MeV, runaways pose a serious risk to tokamak reactors; capable of inflicting catastrophic damage to the armor and vessel walls. A proper diag ...

  8. RADIATION HARD HIGH SPEED CAMERA SYSTEM FOR ACCELERATOR BEAM DIAGNOSTICS

    SBC: Alphacore, Inc.            Topic: 24h

    Alphacore intends to submit a proposal for a Sequential Phase IIA grant in January 2018. Thus far in Phase II Alphacore has developed an initial prototype of a radiation-hardened 10,000-pixel camera with custom- designed 10,000-frames-per-second (10kpfs) capable image sensor IC, camera control PCB with FPGA and interface to a PC, and an enclosure allowing different lens options. Most of Alphacore' ...

  9. Multi-Channel Readout IC for Nuclear Physics Experiments

    SBC: Alphacore, Inc.            Topic: 24b

    Readout integrated circuits (ROICs) for Nuclear Physics science experiments are very expensive and generally have performance flaws that make it difficult to collect all the data that researchers seek from the detectors that they use in their facilities. General statement of how this problem or situation is being addressed. Alphacore is developing multi-channel ROICs that have high performance, ad ...

  10. Resonant Polarimetry and Magnetometry

    SBC: Electrodynamic            Topic: 25e

    The next generation DOE physics accelerator, The Electron Ion Collider (EIC) will collide spin oriented electrons and ions with unprecedented focus at the interaction point. For accelerator operators to maintain these spin polarized beams they must have a way to noninvasively measure spin orientation as the beam travels through the accelerator. To achieve the unprecedented focus at the collision p ...
